    I feel a bit sad
    I was reading a harness forum on a Footy board of all places
    and a poster pointed out a shocking/suss drive from Kate Gath for which she was suspended nearly a year ago (Jan 20)
    I wouldn't have thought it

    Interesting to watch, then read the stewards report. She copped 4 weeks for an "unacceptable drive". Horse drove like a pig, she drove like it was dead and stopped driving it altogether when it looked a winning chance.

    Certainly no magnum of Champagne for drive of the day!

    Annoying when HRV cannot get Replays up within a reasonable time
    R9 has been run at Maryborough but still no replays up for any race
    (lucky we have Sky and other options BUT we shouldn't have to stuff around with alternatives)

    I guess some horses just thrive on racing. Jaziah had 24 starts as a 2yo in 11mths of racing without a spell, all for Peter Manning bar 4 for owner Rhonda Aldons in Qld. One break of 5wks and another of 6wks between races was all she ever got

    And still no spell, she has raced twice now as a 3yo and won in 1.54.9 at Hamilton today. Maybe they are not planning a long career for her but rather a couple of seasons then off to the breeding barn? Her breeding is from Royalty - literally that is as her 2nd dam is named Royalty

    They cannot have a racing person entering the results for Melton or else they would have realized you can't have multiple Odds On pops in a race like they have entered for R5 and R6
    (They have entered the starting Place odds instead of the Win odds)

    Looks like standard prices the brave bookies of the Riverina offer on course, especially at Non TAB meetings.

    Arts Dash was dashing around the parade ring before the crazy Mercury - so fast that you would almost think it could be an OH&S issue

    Reprinted from The Daily Mail Australia

    "Ms Vanmaris was also a guest at the the Harnass Horse of the Year awards and, after the presentation, moved on to Silks restaurant with Ms Roberts and other friends, where the previously simmering argument boiled over."

    For this particular story the typo may have been appropriate

    Like the Stewart and Tonkin new colours, Kima Frenning's colours also look like a Carlton track suit top.
    I am a Blues Boy but as far as racing colours go
    I am expecting something more modern like bright fluro colours easy to identify from a distance instead of these retro football styles

    One of our posters pointed out to me that we now have a Treble to bet on
    He and I are not terribly observant as it has been around since October (maybe earlier)
    The pools are not suggesting it is a success
