Discuss Australian harness racing here
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.
99% of the time it is because these accounts are created by one of two people who have nothing better to do then to...
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...
After the Breeders Crown series at Melton on Saturday night a mate sends me a message about why does Purdon hand up on Follow The Stars to Alford on Menin Gate? It is patently obvious to me that Purdon has done everything possible to give his horse...
I only ask this out of interest sake only. If you don't know then don't comment. Does Tess still have any relationship with her former high flying premiership winning partner? I am seriously out of the loop on this. Cheers guys.
Controversial Kev again but how can it be good for our struggling industry to see so much money go across the ditch?
Add in the fact that it makes many think purchasing NZ horses makes more sense than breeding Oz
I know they are not always this...
I thought I would start this to recognize Amanda's skill and her travelling ability.
I noticed her watching partner Nathan drive in the last at Bendigo on Friday night , after having trained and driven the winner of race 4.
Last night at Wagga...
BIG highlight for me last week...one for the battlers
Final Results - Race 8 REDCLIFFE 17 December 2014 Play Video
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE MINI TROT DRIVERS 3YO & OLDER PACE
Race code: ...
I stand to be corrected but I think this may be Vic's first 2yo race for the season
6 starters for you breeding enthusiasts to look up.
I haven't done so yet myself but No.3 jumped out at me
These totals are only for Vic TAB meets
Newb Amanda Turnbull 3w last season - 88w this season (clear 5th on Premiership Table) 62 of these were in the 2nd half of the season so she has a huge bullet next to her name
Other big gains came from:...
Seems there has been 6 positives to this in Nsw harness although non yet in Gallops.
Seems like it is the same as Epo and can cause a horse to collapse and even die.Can be administered by needle or tablet.
Dare say we need to wait and to see the...
I gave up betting on trots a couple of decades ago and after seeing the start in Yarra valley race 2 people will understand why.
Every driver off the front line should be fined and suspended for not being anywhere near the gate on release.
It is a bit hard to get excited about Tuesday with the first 4 heats having fields of 5,5,5,6
Super effort by Our Waikiki Beach today; 12 for 12 and just the type of star the sport needs. Hope he keeps it going as a 3YO :D
Hard to work this out. My horse qualified about 10th for the 2yo C&G trot final and will more than likely be running around for the 6-12 prize money of $840.
6 others who couldn’t qualify for the final,mostly fillies, run around Friday night in...
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.
I have always thought the video replay quality you get with the HRV results to be bloody ordinary - it is a very small view screen and if you enlarge it, it only becomes a bigger blur. NSW trots TV has always been sharper. Ventured onto HRNZ and...
What are your feelings about the changes in the harness whip rules over the last year or so?
Personally, I am quite happy with them now myself, but have the feeling from talking to some harness "people" that they think that reverting back to how...
With a few Tassie horses peforming well in Vic lately I thought I might follow Tassie form next season.
I looked up their calendar and Good God - they only race on Sundays ;)
Makes one realize how lucky we are
To make sure I balance out my negativity, I am starting this thread and I am going to keep it going (with your help I hope). I think I may have started such a thread long ago but this time I want it to flourish. It must not be in place of positive...
Not sure why this has not made it onto here yet but the promised audit into Victorian harness racing was released last Friday.
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...
266 starts & still winning FFA's...& in good fashion
Chalked up his 50th Albion Park victory on saturday night
What a super horse this fella has been...every stable should have one
