  • Hey crew, thinking chariots could help me out here but anyone wanting to hand out a year 10 maths lesson feel free to comment.  Im well aware of the nature of creating a 100% win market ($2=50%, $4=25% etc) but how do you go about creating the equiv…
  • Is R Warwick suspended He’s on holidays
  • Would a Metro Staked race programmed like the following for Friday nights  $18,000 L7+ Restricted to Horses that have not won a Metro Staked race RBD benefit the industry ?  How’s it any different to the LT 40k RBD now? Restricted to Horses tha…

  • Absolute incompetence if everything circulating is true.
  • WA racing is the most exciting in Australia because of the ability to push out, period. I thought that for years too Panda....until I worked out that being the only racing jurisdiction that allowed it in the world was probably indicative of the exi…

  • I think the ease out rule should go altogether.It is only possible to ease out safely when wheels are adjacent or the inside horse & drivers wheel is fractionally but not entirely in front of the outside horses cart wheel. With the speed carts t…
  • Possibly Rocket. On the flip side it gave opportunity as well to the smaller trainers to buy cheap and win races. Absolutely but once all the WA trainers cottoned on they were no longer cheap, horses worth $500 to race here were selling for 10-1…
  • Or was it pushed from a local level to stop the exit of so many horses. You can’t tell me RWWA would be disappointed with this. Guessing it was more complaining from eastern states trainers than WA doubt they enjoyed racing their genuine maidens …
  • Former WA competitor Im Freya snuck in before the embargo commenced today & won the first at Penrith tonight. She will go from being a NR 30 to a NR 50 with the win under the new rule which commences on or after today. Lucky/unlucky. Rating …
  • Vespa sit the pegs one last crack at them The leaders didn’t get tired enough for him haha
  • To Rocket Reign, apologies for thinking you were the owner even though you said in an answer to a post of mine "it's my horse".  You then say that I can have my opinion. Some people don't believe that we are entitled to our opinions, so thank you fo…
  • Rocket,  As I said in my reply to your post, I'm not a trots punter. I can add to that, I never have been. I also stated that I have been following the blokes on here, and I should have included Jay Jay and Markovina, who will, from time to time, th…
  • Thank you for the insight Rocket. I wonder how your horse is expected to win a race if he has to always be driven on the fence at a track where they don’t have a sprint lane. In the thoroughbred caper it’s usually the other way around that horses do…
  • Well, I am finally cured forever. With the time difference between Melbourne and Perth only being two hours, I have been having some small wagers on the trots at GP. I've been following Gilgamesh and VK for the most part. I haven't been backing all …
  • Agree with KTQ about track ratings. Fought hard at HRA level to have Fast, Good, Dead, Slow, Heavy but the stewards seem reluctant to change readings. Mudguards and splash sheets should be a trigger to a track change but still reluctant to alter the…
  • I know we tend to be drawn to the swooping drives for the praise so Reed on Caveman and De Campo on The Mikki Taker are the quick page poppers but I thought Maddison Brown’s drive on Back In Twenty was drive of the night. Yes was short and just led …
  • An ill wind for some is a refreshing sea breeze for others...champagne moments for Rocket in January!! Birthday gift for the prince haha
  • Geez how was the win of Vespa for PTT’s own happy go lucky trainer. Huge run, one to lift the heart rate that is forsure. Don’t agree often but can’t argue doing a great job and hopefully showing others what you can do with the right horses and …
  • One would imagine the only reason Dont Bother Me None NZ didn't get a start is that it wasn't nominated at acceptance time. For that matter I think the two emergencies were unlucky not to get a start in front of Sound Wave. It was definitely nomi…
  • Baffling to see a horse like Sound Wave get a start ahead of Don’t Bother Me None, no brainer which one you’d rather in your stable. Couldn’t even argue that Sound Waves form is superior
  • Should the field selectors read this forum, I'll call out Sugar Street's run at Bunbury -  breezed, home in 55.44 and beaten pixels. Also Lil Happy Fella - checked down the back straight at a pivotal moment, nearly galloped - lost ground and momentu…
  • Burning Rubber using the drop in class next Tuesday at Narrogin to its maximum  And rightly so
  • Interesting name of one of part owners. It’s me if that’s what you’re referring to
  • The whisper going around is Ragazzo Mach will not be contesting the WA derby. It’s not a whisper, was confirmed early last week
  • Just watched a interview and Michael Grantham is going into the gallopers full time soon,not sure if he will continue driving but sad to see another up and comer possible lost to the other side. To be fair he come from the other side in the first…
  • Country Cups ....yes, yes, yes.....establish and promote the circuit. Victoria has a high profile program in place. We could even group the cups according to conditions, stakes etc. The $30k FFA Cups, the $20k cups etc etc. At the moment they are al…
  • Its just shows how dicey the yearling approach is re $s Read in Saturdays West - Texas - the winner of the feature race at GP Frid Night - quotes from Hall Snr - said the owner Chapman paid about 70k for it - it had won its 1st 2 starts in NZ at tha…
