  • I don't think horses numbers are low but if you close country tracks, trainer numbers will reduce. Busselton, which used to thrive, has few trainers now. 1 tiny tiny public training track (albeit, over the years it has produced some very very good h…

  • Ambulances should carry around a video collating the final 400m of when Vultan Tin wins to bring flatline patients back to life
  • Stewards were totally incorrect but there should be a duty of care on the trainers part as well. what? Like I said, if there are no race bars on a horse, we're going to nominate! The stewards should have scratched him, just like they should have m…
  • query in point 10 was whether an educational trial is or isnt an official trial 0ne assumes yes and any other trial on the day cant get a horse`s bar liftedbut point 10 suggests an education trial may not be an official trial- if it isnt an official…
  • KTQ I can remember one of your team not completing a satisfactory trial and it was accepted in the field and the trainer allowed it to start and it transgressed again. Short memory. If a horse is not stopped by field selectors to start, why on eart…
  • I am over this sport. What consequence is there for the winner? He wins $12k, we get $650 and a horse with a slashed leg. WHAT CONSEQUENCE IS THERE?!?
  • People constantly bag GP as having leaders bias but just look at the results for ANY WA track. 6 of 9 horses won by leading at PJ on Monday, 3 of 8 at Narrogin (most came from the 1-2), 3 from 8 at NM, 4 from 8 at NGN.
  • GTC......If you combine your earlier post (Point 10) & and the highlighted section below it would seem not...... if only the first trial is recorded & that is an educational trial then in essence it means nothing officially & the second …
  • Just out of interest re Trials  If you have a horse which to date has only raced in Mobile starts - if it then enters a standing start race - does it have to do a standing start trial - and pass it to qualify for that standing start race - and if so…
  • A trial is meant to mimic race conditions. At what race meet can you follow the mobile around for a lap in the race prior to increase your chances of your horse not galloping in its actual race?
  • Going by the results,Think you will find the trial High Price did its jump out in, was a official 2yo and 3yo trial, it was also  nominated for a educational trial the same day 13th Mar.but was scratched ,this was following its trial at Pinjarra on …
  • It has completed one trial and followed that up with a J/O, that is, it has faced the barrier satisfactorily twice which is all it has to do. I think you are being a little harsh, they have just followed the policy as it currently stands.. educat…
  • High Price is back in the draw after only one trial. How is that possible? Apparently we're counting educationals as barrier jump outs now but we can't qualify in educationals, nor can you do a satisfactory trial in an educational. Stewards need to …
  • Its interesting what Hall has said  I can only go on what Ernie Manning quotes re his excellent Saturday coverage ( and lovely pictures ) re Friday Nights race round up at GP  And Ernie had those direct quotes from Hall snr - that the horse would hi…

  • 13.3hands is tiny. Not many smaller but not many of that size get much of a chance based purely on the unfair preconception that size matters
  • https://www-harness-org-au.akamaized.net/vic/MXM26022201.mp4 Thank you JayJay that is how to drive from the breeze with a sprint lane. Couldn’t have planned it any better. I just created a thread for this before I saw your post sorry Jayjay. Ho…
  • How many warnings constitutes a good record? lol. Hall had EIGHT warnings and 1 fine from July to the start of November for causing interference and that doesn't count the instances he wasn't picked up. I should start tallying this **** again. 
  • Match race on a straight track right?

  • Nothing good comes of racing babies this early in the season but with $100k on offer, we're all pushing them to make the heats. Would a March series really be such a bad thing?
  • Chris Lewis still not back in the bike. The master, might be back this Friday,see he's down to drive a few. He said he's back driving on the 18th
  • shame they couldnt race in an earlier timeslot ,last race 10.26pm ,long way home for some of the industry ,safety issue with driver fatigue  last race was at 10.50pm the first night.
  • I was watching some replays the other day and holy moly that is one pretty track. I've never noticed all the hills in the background. 
  • If she was entitled to push out then she wouldn’t have got suspended. It was severe not mid level. She almost brought half the field down. It happened in the home straight toward the finish line. All MASSIVE no no’s. She should have got six weeks a…
  • Emily's the one that's had 10 warnings for shifting out, causing interference, causing crossing, inconveniencing horses etc. The steward report for the Dec 24 incident notes her "very good record". 8 warnings ago she may have had a very good record.…
  • There are a number of positive swabs and other charges that have had hearings with no results posted on rwwas site and a number where the actual charge isn't even posted. This is not a good look for the sport.
  • Despite you making some pretty relevant points the fact of the matter is; your horses are some of the most prolific repeat offenders for bad manners (galloping for no reason. Etc.) So in my opinion it’s fair to say the drivers do a pretty good job t…

  • Our mare fell at Albany Friday night getting her legs taken. No driver apparently to blame, she hung out very slightly (according to Mitch, it was very marginal) horse outside her hung in. Eye roll. Surely you wouldn't be traveling so close to the i…
