Big Call, Two Horses in the Quaddie

I am making a big call here to round out the quaddie and making it a two horse race between Ripper Rio and Crusoe. Sometimes you have to roll the dice and while many punters will be taking almost the field I am going to risk it and try to steal some extra juicy percentage and just play Ripper Rio and Crusoe. Ripper Rio is gunning for a winning hat-trick this preparation and Crusoe gets the services of Jarrad Noske, dropping back form a much stronger 72+ race which contained the likes of Tradesman, Infathuated, Properantes, Universal Law and Outlaw Pete. I think they both have a little class edge on this field and I am willing to stick my neck out in the last leg and stand them out. Pike jumps off the Cronkite ship and from barrier 12 with 49 days between runs he will need to be at his best as will War God drawn the carpark. Settlers Creek comes from an average midweek 60+, Antique Dream is yet to show much this preparation and Juendis could find the 1400m a bit too far.

It's not the $20 entry fee stopping the majority of people going to the races so it would be poinless to can it. The majority of people aren't racing enthusiasts either so having a horse like Kawi go round meant nothing to most. The general public just want to...

How much better is a day at the track when there are people there? You are going to spend that $20 regardless so let them spend it on the punt/food rather than walking through a gate.

They should just throw the gates open every week, except the big days of course. Whats the worse that can happen? Extra turnover on tote, more food and drink sales? No brainer as far as im concerned.

Might have been a day for tipsters, but the punters stayed away. NZ passport holders were invited free of charge to come along, but it appears they didn't. Kawi being a multiple group winning horse didn't prove the drawcard that was hoped for by Perth Racing. ...
