Discuss thoroughbred racing here
An ordinary Wednesday/midweek meet at Sandown today (4th ranked Melbourne metro track) and yet there were 2 races with $80k prizemoney.
We cannot compete with that.
One of the trainers at one of the worlds biggest thoroughbred set ups didn't know you couldn't give steroids to racehorses?
It does not read well for the MRC executive

This idiot headed off to Ararat today believing the gallops were on (an hour and half round trip) only to find that I was the only one there LOL
If you check Racenet you will still see that under Ararat fields they are still listing results for...
Today I was somewhat of a traitor and went to Stawell Races. I must admit that my past 'racing' experiences have pretty much been dining experiences in the Flem members or the MV dining boxes.
It was really interesting to compare what the 2...

Small step in the right direction.
Just learnt that iconic vet Percy Sykes passed away yesterday...drawing to a close an era of thoroughbred history that saw he and master trainer T J Smith form an unbeatable combination that saw TJ win more than 30 Sydney premierships.
Today I heard Nick Xenophon calling for a judicial inquiry into the Waterhouse/Singleton mudslinging saga over More Joyous. The only thing that is clear to me is Xenophon can only be compared to the male reproductive organ that hangs between most...
Seems resorting to physical jousting isn't just reserved to the boys...now the girls are at it. Not much changes when you throw two sisters, a whip, a bum and a boy in the mix..it can only and inevitably end in tears. Hope the girls can sort their...
