West Australian Racing
Now a 12 race card. Would this be the most races ever run on a track in one day in WA? or anywhere?

    These last couple of weeks really highlights our need for more tracks that can spread the load and/or handle the wet.
    The Bunbury redevelopment can't be finished soon enough!

    They are now in a. Position of catch up which will be detrimental to the surface. They should now realise and should have realised for a few seasons now that the 2 metro tracks can not handle sat we’d sat meetings without compromising the surface to the detriment of the animals competing on it

    Later in the day the wide barriers may not be a disadvantage, the inside part of the track will be a mudheap

    can somebody tell me what a "Forty Niner" is?

    Forty niner refers to the Californian gold rush in 1849.

    Now can mean digging for gold generally.
