    It takes well over 3hrs by car so he is looking at a 2pm to 2am day.

    I guess when you have a 2yo debut like that it will make the drive easier. Wasn't looking like that out of the gate though!

    2 wins for Craven so far and has fave in the last.

    Ben Yole is having a quiet night this Friday at Hobart, with only 19 starters, with 8 in the 5th race.

    Already he has amassed 1,547 starters this season, nearly double that of the next best trainer, KerryAnn Turner (NSW) with 778.

    Just incredible!

    It is amazing when you consider Kerry Ann probably has 5 times as many meetings in her state

    I can't say that I always look at the Race conditions too closely and wondered if the following is something new and whether it is a common condition

    * Restricted to trainers who trained no more than 25 winners in the 2016 / 2017 racing season.

    I presume Kev it is related to this:

    "There will be a total of 724 races programmed in May and June, of which 110 will be $5000 races with the $1000 bonus. Of these 110 $5000 races, three will be restricted to trainers who trained no more than two winners in the 2016/2017 racing season, and a further 44 will be restricted to trainers who trained no more than 25 winners in the 2016/17 racing season. For these (44+3) races, a trainer must have lodged a valid stable return at least one month prior to acceptance time for each race. The remaining 63 races at the $5000 stakemoney level and the other 614 races programmed in May and June 2018 will not have restrictions based on the number of winners in the 2016/17 racing season"

    Danno's humble opinion is the whole thing needs a bloody good review under a decent microscope, too many young people being denied opportunities that are going to their brethren that really don't need it in the way it was originally devised.
    Coming in late here Dan but I was sent this

    HRNSW provides for the following:
    - A driver may claim a concession for (the term) five years from attainment of an initial B Grade Drivers Licence or the driver reaches the age of 23, whichever is the latter. (The term will end at the conclusion of the racing season with respect to each of the above scenarios.)
    - A driver may claim a concession until he/she has driven 250 winners.
    - Drivers who have not driven 50 winners during "the Term" may apply for an extension. Should a driver not win 50 races during the Term then they will receive a two year Term Extension.
    The Term Extension will end upon whichever of the following occurs first: a) a driver wins the 50th race of their career b) at the conclusion of the 2nd racing season of the Term Extension


    A 4th and 5th year seems very generous for some who have started driving 100 winners by their 3rd year

    My understanding is HRNSW make the fields for the open class races at Menangle based on noms received. May be an explanation for it but that doesnt make it right that Ultimate Art didnt get a start in the feature.
