  • He tried hard Dark Musket and looked a possible winner near the corner, but very tired over the concluding stages, just fell into third. The winner looked like he could've gone another two laps! Racing so consistently.
  • The coaches comments in the late sports Weekend Newspaper were possibly more mid - late 70's than 80's. Little captions they were. Just not sure who that coach was now, but at skool gave us kids a good laugh.
  • Some of the special comments today - "it's important to get the ball out of the centre" ( in reference to 6-6-6 )...gosh thanks, didn't know that. Also if they talk of the "Leigh Matthews Principle" of you can score a goal every minute one more ti…
  • Much preferred the short coaches comments in the newspaper back then than the innocuous press conference's of today - know which was more interesting! The questions fired at an injured Luke Hodge the other night - I mean seriously - but of course …
  • One thing about Dark Musket and helps to explain why so short in the betting, we know he'll run the two miles but not interested in that, it's how fast he'll run it today is what counts! Being run as race 4 - a bit unusual, thought a main race mig…
  • VK can you recall the short "coaches comments" they use to have in the Saturday evening "Weekend News" paper in the green lift out footy section. Always interesting to read, sometimes even a veiled shot at the umpires haha. Now it was either John …
  • When get the time will write down my memories as a 14/15 yr old of the 1978 WAFL season when an East Perth team came from an impossible position to first make the four, and then win the most unlikely of Premiership's as rank underdog's by under a ki…
  • Once again you're spot on VK! Was listening to that game on radio because EP game would've been finished, but in a high scoring close game with controversy the SD v Claremont game was still going and many people at the EP game were listening - such …
  • That incident with the protest at Ascot might have been very early 80's, although was betting when underage - who didn't! Wonder when the ledger at Ascot and Belmont closed down - am suspecting early 90's.
  • Yes I've seen and read about whereby that guy was shot in the court complex, with the fellow walking out. If these are all the things we know, then probably much more has never seen the light of day. Not many camera's, no dna back then that's for …
  • Not allowed to look up - but 3 guesses to recall who rode Dark Musket when running third at 150/1 in the 2015 Group One Kingston Town ? The winner was Perfect Reflection.
  • For a horse that mostly starts mostly @33/1 and better - they haven't missed him tomorrow, only about 5/2 ($3.50) however he's a 3200 metre sort of fellow - his last win was over the the two miles at Ascot on 21st April 2018. Has been chomping at …
  • Stg - did get on a result afterwards - once. Picture mid-late seventies Ascot Ledger - protest 2nd v 1st - was around the back area of the tote - remember the payout windows section at the back - well it had come thru there, think it was written on …
  • Bookielover what about the great bookie armed robbery that occurred in Melbourne at Tattersalls or wherever the settling was done at - was that in the 70's ? Wasn't much security it appeared, did they just rely on the element of surprise ? How many …
  • No knock on Celebrity Dream, thought at the furlong previous run was nearly going to pick them up, and was just as good a run as Lady Cosmology.
  • Today Electric Light after having the run of the race never gave a yelp. Stablemate Celebrity Dream who was second last in the five horse field, storm's home to victory - with Willy Pike timing the run to perfection. Was on Lady Cosmolgy last run …
  • Yes knew Callan had resumed driving - didn't know about the positive! That explains. Thanks curmudgeon, thought Emily was his sister, then again when think about it, would have made a pretty hefty age gap!
  • JJ how is Callan Suvaljko going these days in regards to the shocking tumble he had at the GP daylight meeting awhile back - looked a real bad one, hasn't been driving and haven't read or heard much on how he's doing ? Emily is a ripper - also get…
  • That's what I like to hear! Talking of drive's too - first race at Wagin last night - some interesting thing's going on in that race. Was never a dull moment. By the finish they were spread out like brown cows - most would've enjoyed a good drink …
  • Full credit to Vultan Tin and Always Arjay as well - from where these two neddies have come from in their racing career deserve's an episode on "Ripley's Believe It Or Not". Persistence pays.
  • Yes for sure there were two spray's! A couple of things from that race - from where they were how did bolters Tact Major & Tommy Be Good run third and fourth?! Even the commentator down the back straight said forget all about them. Whozidea…
  • Some massive 1,10 results last night - if ever there's a bet ( first four's Flexi ) should put on early, spend a few bucks and tuck the tickets away and forget about 'em is that 1,10 result - talking inside and inside of back row draw draws.....ever…
  • Bookielover just out of curiosity - would your father overall have profited from odds on favourite's...how did you guys "attack" odds on faves ? Were they very profitable in the long run ? There's 3000 quid in front above. From reading their were …
  • Thanks trk that's good food for thought.
  • Victoria and WA seem to have the most odds on favourites, especially those pesky $1.04 to $1.30 ones. Tonight at Ballarat, get quite a few of them in Victoria especially at Cranbourne and Shepparton as well. The odds on pops have their great nigh…
  • VK that is correct isn't it...for as long as West Coast are involved in the finals then all player's will be eligible to play in the WAFL finals ? That's fair enough and makes sense. If that's the case ( injuries can put a halt to it though ) then…
  • Interesting quinella there Rio and a rough chance, like a 330/1 rough chance! No that's not quite right..feel both South and West Coast will make the finals. Make no mistake the Eagles maybe up and down all year in the WAFL but if they make the fi…
  • Vincenzo never looked totally comfortable from the moment Lagoon Stride crossed him, still managed a better than reasonable run ( for a $1.10 chance ) not helped at the bell lap, but that was only momentarily. He's a grinder alright. Can't take an…
  • Gosh didn't see the race, but have seen just now Vincenzo rolled @$1.10!! Wonder what this replay is gunna tell. Backing odds on faves all the time - good luck!!
  • He got the best out of Darren Jarman in the Grand Final against St.Kilda - scorched them in the final quarter - today Jarman would be running off the field after he kicked a major and not back on for 10mins! Sports science - gone mad. Jarman thrived…
