  • Would be funny if North were playing WC.

  • Speaking of turning heads I recall a very prominent driver in the mid nineties I think, leading the field at GP with 700 mtrs to travel, turned his head to look at the times board located at the 400 mtr mark. As he did this a horse that was heavily …
  • AFLW GF now finds a permanent home at Marvel. Too hard to organise at interstate venues. What’s the bet it’s a 20 yr contract. Just another kick in the guts for interstate clubs.

  • Seems crazy to knock all these buildings down - while keeping the same track size in place - what a waste of time  The 3 preferred options would be (1) GP- 1000 metre track  (2) If their not prepared to do that - put the for sale sign up and get top…
  • They nearly fell over at the 800.
  • You are right JayJay regenerating GP will not change a thing. It is one of the most narrow minded decisions I have seen in the history of pacing in WA. Absolutely no consideration given to the future of the industry and its participants as a whole.
  • I have just read one of the most ridiculous comments by a reporter ever. Re Freo finishing top 4. They will be relying on either Melbourne or Brisbane to lose who are playing each other. Mmmmmmm.
  • Keller Today Cheer The Major EW in the 6th at Pinj today. Drop to the pegs early and the face will kick away early I feel and give it a chance to run it down. I will watch that one with particular interest Gilga.
  • nic nat looked like he was swatting mozzies.... Yep same with a lot of other WC players but question is why. Been the same for some time.
  • Nelson, hough, gaff, Edwards…. Should all be looking for new jobs. Nelson , Edwards, Rotham, Waterman, Langdon, Nic Nat, Duggan, Cripps, Petrucelle, and if Willie wants to go then happy to move him on. My problem is you cant get rid of that many …
  • They are not our premier track though.
  • If it was 1000 mtr track would those $1.60 favs be $1.80 or $2 They would still be favourite and if a bigger track makes no difference then the “assumed” legion of short priced punters might get a bigger return.
  • Why wouldn’t they retire Nic Nat and keep him as ruck mentor/coach. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see he can’t run or mark anymore. Understand he’s been injured but wouldn’t it be better to replace him all together with a developing r…
  • 100% Marko but it is not the track. GP in the 80s 90s was one of the most competitive/aggressive tracks in Aust from a driving perspective. I know that for fact having experienced it and spoken to interstate drivers visiting. The dominance of two s…
  • Yep Detto good hard game all around. Just hope no lingering injuries as a result.
  • I said some time ago on this forum they will line up to be in the sale of GP. And here it is.
  • Narrogin tonight Cullen Star Bat Streamline Mags Mach **** Miss Tivoli.
  • Most trainers are now based an hour plus from GP. Two round trips a week for the next fourty years. Add that up in fuel, travel time and wear and tear. And that is the easy bit. Diesel will Sky Rocket once electric vehicles come into play. And for …
  • This whole idea is madness without knowing the value of the land as a whole. Why would someone build a new stand and whatever else then take ownership of the old land and regenerate it. Because there’s money in it that’s why. 10 million in the bank…
  • Who’s the senior Vice President ???
  • Disco Und Fire Euphoria (bet of the night) Al Guerrero Free to Air
  • Why don’t they move the track into the river. Then we could have lots more boat races. If possible.

  • I think you will find the father son rule was bought in at a time when VIC teams were struggling and the top eight was littered with interstate teams. How is the father son rule fair when Most interstate clubs hadn’t had time to reproduce. It was …
  • Willie hasn’t had a great season. Had a bit going on as a lot of the Eagles have.But if Willie can get a decent run at it and with a good pre season then he makes us a much better team.Would hate to see him playing his best footy along side his rela…
  • I’ll take it.
  • Bruise free Derby on Saturday night. Shame nothing hinges on the match. Percentage not an issue for the Dickers either because of their draw with Richmond. The game will be old fashioned "circle work". I-) I reckon there’s been a few WC players p…
