Race 1 – The Best Friday Ever I’m not overly religious. In fact, I believe religion tends to cause more harm than good. So, the fact we can drink, gamble and yell at horses on a ma...

They certainly took the cap off the handi horses so they could win a few more races while handicapping others for every hard earned dollar Hurting this little Aussie Battler thatís for sure.

Thought I saw co trainer of Dal Harraild interviewed after Pakenham Cup say he is that he is unlikely to come for the cup ? Note the horse is $8.00 in the all in markets.

Yes, of course, that gulf will always be there...as it was when Johnson, Coulson, Schrader, Lindau etc dominated. I think the lay of the land was always Big stables v Small stables.  But there is, from my perspective, things that could be done within this...

The debut win at Narrogin defeated Never On Time and Bar Couture, not sure how their careers have panned out...SP price was $1.90 and the hoop Shaun Meeres. The Pinjarra Cup fourth...hmmmm. Was set upon!

Jay jay I respect everything you say. But the lay of the land now is big stables vs small stables. That was never the case in times gone by. I'm not sure any handicapping ideas will ever fix the gulf between big and small stables

I do miss the diversity of lots of different stables making up the field in feature races. Not hall or bonds fault. It's just the lay of the land these days. It's quite sad to be honest.......

Jesus curmudgeon stop making so much sense :)) Ok seriously.....well written. It's not bonds fault at all. Good luck to him for having the cheque book to be able to buy these horses. He's been trying to knock off snr for 10 years and it looks like he has ...

This Nugget is what happens when you don't protect and develop your local breeding industry. It makes the whole on track scenario a farce. Not Bondy's fault ...he has been around a long time and has invested heavily in the industry and is now in a position whe...

With the benefit of hindsight the $9 that was available on Tabtouch for Cruz Bromac to win all three heats and the final was the way to go, especially with the way they seperate the major players in the heats. Having him running at $9 definetly would put th...
