  3. Where does all the prizemoney come from?

    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.

  6. The gallops are blessed

    We just cannot beat them. Winx's comeback race should have been a bit of yawn BUT she misses the start by 4 lengths to instil drama into the race and turns it into one of her best wins
