Stating the obvious you say but in the past I have turned a blind eye to this, thinking that the Breeding thread can be somewhat of a graveyard in terms of poster visits but recent activity has shown this is not necessarily true.
Maybe it's common knowledge to some, but it wasn't to me and I've seen quite a few people mention it over the years. Once fields are out it's hard to know what the exact conditions of the race were. Short of having a gazette which changes anyway...
From time to time, usually within this Australian Forum you will see members banned without an explanation, and may wonder why.

With ongoing drug scandals in Australia it's important that everybody understands what can and can't be said on a public forum from a legal perspective.
A public forum IS NOT the same as chatting to people at the track. Legally it's akin to...
Everybody else probably already knew this but it just dawned on me tonight that with paying prizemoney so far down, when the fields are small - the advertised stake is not actually paid out.
My heading refers to R5 at Bendigo as an example. ...
BIG highlight for me last week...one for the battlers

This 2yo colt out of Bronte Jones rated 1.55.9 winning the 1st ht of the Vicbred Platinum Home Grown tonight at Bendigo beating the latest bling - Show Me The Bling.
Greg had a night(mare) to forget tonight

He had another Last and a Second Last
Can someone please explain LCRT to me> Says last chance to race truly but what are the ramifications of that statement?
Maybe it is just me but seeing this story on Darrel Graham
Just left me cold.

I looked at NSW & went back (maybe too long ago) from 1984/5 to 2014/5.
In 1984/5 we had 414 sires standing in NSW.........woweeeeee....... Now ?????
In 1984/5 we had 6359 mares served , in 2014/5 we had 1614 (including imp. semen).
No apologies for the vague heading as we need THE other word to disappear from our industry

Mr Ken Dyer published an article: Globe Derby Some New Information On His Early Days.
There's always been some conjecture around when Globe Derby was first named and what that name was.

The tiered system is supposed to reduce the number of odds on favs and therefore I have started a db of how many we have this season and I will update it regularly here.
In the db I am including at what track, who trained them, the type and value...

First of all Catch Your Breath going 1.53.9 at Kilmore on Sunday and today Fearless Leader going 1.55.9 at Horsham. How many more records will fall this summer?
Inspired by fellow poster on this Forum Messenger, aka Kevin O'Donoghue who's 40 years following the trots has had him essentially ignore the good old Squaregaiter, i have decided to open a thread dedicated to the Trotters only.
As Kev has alluded...
This partly duplicates some other threads but their titles did not say what I wanted.
Elsewhere Kyle (Amlin) has pointed out that we have an exclusive contract with Sky but the sooner we can renegotiate this the better.
