Discuss Australian harness racing here
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.
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...
This from the Harnessbred site
I am not sure who the writer is but Dean Baring is approving it
I know nothing about the politics up there but when questioning the proposed Alberton I can relate...
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.
We kick off with the Swan Hill Cup tonight and how privileged are the locals to have Guaranteed and Hector Jay Jay going around in their $30k cup. Guaranteed resuming would have been coup enough in my book but to also have the Interdom Fav is...
Can someone please explain LCRT to me> Says last chance to race truly but what are the ramifications of that statement?
The 2016/17 season was only three days old when Marshall Dale greeted the winning post with winning odds of $99.40 in race 1 at Albion Park on 3rd September.
An early biggie, which may last for some time.
Some are fined & some are reprimanded for the same rule 273(6)(b). Why?
Race 2 – S & L Tritton Rule 273(6)(b) BIG BANG PENNY
Race 2 – C Davies Rule 273(6)(b) MAGIC MADDIE
Race 3 – R Alchin Rule 273(6)(b) WATTS UP MAORI...
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...
I know this is another negative sounding thread but I feel that we have to highlight (lowlight) the dire straits we seem to be in.
Noms have closed for Bendigo next Tuesday and they have only garnered 33 at this point
T1 = 3 noms
3yo = 2
No apologies for the vague heading as we need THE other word to disappear from our industry
2 more states in the news for the wrong reasons today
The question that comes to mind is why not??
Dear Licenced Participant,
Please note the following changes to the Race Dates Calendar in November.
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...
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...
It was Stawell trots yesterday and despite being in town on a beautiful day I did not even go. It seems relevant to the above article/plea
It is this time of...
I have got my angry pants on again (just knocked out of a poker tournament) but I think it is fair to say that NZ's 'finishing' is generally better than OZ's.
Look at this link to their Addington Cup Week Rankings
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. ...
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).
