The FFA on Friday night is ostensibly a PBD but being based on Harness Win ONLY Earnings last 2 starts, it throws up a bit of an anomaly.

While They Pray is ODM, so it has to get gate 6. JJMAC is the only runner to have won in it's last two starts, so it has to get gate 5. The other 4 runners have not won in their last two starts, so it becomes a random draw for them with Wildwest winning out with gate 1.

The earnings (not win earnings) for each of the 4 in their last two starts is as follows (In barrier draw order):

WildWest                    $11,048
Arma Einstein             $3,146
Too Fast Too Serious  $1,228
Hampton Banner        $1,228

There are strong views either way on PBD v RBD but given the programmed conditions for this race, this is, depending on your point of view, either a half pregnant PBD or a half pregnant RBD......and a 6 horse, pay 1,2 only pregnancy at that.

    Just another prime example why Harness Racing is where it is today. Poor leadership poor programming.

    Its not just the programming we need the  steward's to finally show some leadership, history has shown us this is not a one off and they fall for last time.

    100% it does, have to reinforce that last week sitting was "the right thing".

    Depends who’s turn it is to win.
    If the money comes for jack then he leads and wins. If it comes for wildwest then he holds the lead and gets his chance.
    Handing up last week on wildwest was a joke.
    He may have had an early burn but jnr had a strangle hold on him well before the Mrs was on the scene. Looked a preconceived plan to me

    I would say Wildwest turn in about 2.00.0
