    As they were scoring up Dan wished driver Olivia Weidenbach happy birthday and nominated her as a last race specialist on long shots
    Both times Our Sportscaster has won, John Caldow has been on the favourite for the Taiba stable
    Looking at the Big Bets article

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/news/art...ive-odds-land/

    I am amazed that the stingy TAB took 5 bets of between $20 and $30 at pretty much 125/1 on Our Sportscaster
    The best part of a $15k payout for a take of only $115

    Also seeing that they took/lost $32,500 to $5,000 on Amused at Mildura is amazing.
    That is odds of $6.50 and he still started the backable odds of $5 fixed
    The Tote Win pool on the race was < $10,000 (sure does fluctuate as the race before it was > $22,000 while the race after was < $6,000)
    Gee it would be good to know what their Fixed holdings are

    Two yo Trot winner at $137

    Here's a biggie:

    Bendigo trainer John McDermott and his neighbour Scott Rains combine with Waikare Colleen in the 2yo trot at Ballarat.
    $137 if you don't mind.

    What is super amazing about that Noel
    Is there were 5 first starters, 5 second starters , 1 having its third start and and 1 having its fifth
    There was no supposed good thing or short favourite
    Amazing to think a 1st starter out of a well performed mare ($149k and winner of three Gp2's) and a well performed 2nd dam ($131k) could start those odds

    I first met Henry McDermott and his young family at a Mildura Cup carnival in the mid 1970s. I think it was Thoron that he bought all the way from Dubbo. One of his best horses was Waikare Queen, a very good pacer and ancestress of Waikare Colleen. Waikare Queen's dam was Queen Bee, a very good Trotter in the 1950s.

    Really great to see both the Queen Bee and the McDermott families are still to the fore five decades on.

    It was $81 on fixed odds when I noticed it and thought you cant let a McDermott trained first starter trotter go around for that price. Graham had one win only a few weeks back at huge odds. They know how to educate trotters that's for sure. So I had a little each way !
    Don't die wondering !

    Good to hear Rick. As you know I often highlight well related horses about to race - somehow I overlooked it
