    Still coming to terms with Super Smink not being in the field.

    Any reason for the Scr on Sat in the 8th,thought it was a walk in the Park,definitely no Stars in this race compared to the Rush.

    Because it's worth $80K and the Starstruck is worth $125K 
    $25 K difference for winning the mares listed race.

    so do i, meatpie. the weather is going to be ideal (as at today!). i reckon there will be 100's of sportsmen from every code, some well known, hundreds not so. plus the thousands like us, just out there to say a silent "cheers ollie, thanks for everything" ps don't even think of a come-back..

    Looking on the Perth Racing website. All corporate options have sold out. 
    I genuinely think this will be Perth racings biggest crowd in twenty years. There are 12 people coming from my little ole hometown driving 200kms just to see Ollie in his last race. I would imagine there would be lots of other from the country coming also.
    We have booked a table in the Punters club. Should be a brilliant day

    Will also be going . As I have t the last 4 weeks from my point of view the crowds over that period have been dismal for our 3 group ones. Hoping a big crowd turns out to give Ollie the send off he deserves. But if the last couple weeks have been anything to go bye they will need a superstar’s retirement as possibly the niche TV hey need

    not very nice, slip. hope it was written when you were half p*ssed...

    the crowd will be huge. i know peter cribb tried to book flying colours early in november and it was sold out with a waiting list.
    yes spinking the crowds have been woeful. these are tough times and when you think a single patron, what is it 30 bucks entry a book and a couple of beers and 50 is gone...double it for husband and wife.

    I expected your dislike Falcon and I was totally sober as I normally am when I post.

    His talent and success are unquestionable but not every person should be expected to be a fan.

    Oliver has a big chance to win the Gold Rush with Munhamek and indeed he has a few good chances on the day but I predict Big Bada Boom will be his final winner

    If only Damien had ridden a horse called Tricycle. That would have been an omen.
