    Breeders Crown 2020

    We kick off with the 2yo's at Ballarat tonight
    I can see the heats being fiercely contested what with there being 4 for the colts and 3 for the fillies which means the boys have to place and the girls first four to make the final
    There are some good horses that are going to miss out
    Michael Stanley has enough goodies entered to give the Stewart/Tonkin stable a run for their money

    Got that wrong - there are semi finals so tonights heats don't mean anything more than finishing in the first half of the field YAWN
    Not even that for the fillies

    My previous YAWN was uncalled for and the racing was interesting - how can seeing the best be anything else
    Yes, we still have semis to go but the Stewart fillies would not be too worried about Soho Almasi on tonight's performance
    Stewart/Tonkin 5, Stanley 1

    It was not too long ago that the Direct Scooter line was almost gone..
    How it has been revived by son In The Pocket and grand-son Mach Three has been remarkable:

    At Ballarat three generations of descendants of Matts Scooter (By Direct Scooter) sired winners:
    Mach Three, his son Somebeachsomewhere and his son Captain Treacherous.

    In addition two winners were from Christian Cullen ( In The Pocket by Direct Scooter) mares and one from a Mach Three mare.

    3yo heats at Bendigo tonight. With only 3 fillies heats they only need to finish top 8 while with 4 heats the C&G need to finish first 6

    So what happened to Private Eye at Bendigo tonight?
    They ran 1.54.6 which happens to be the Tk Rec time he set at Gunbower (a slower track) in his 2nd ever start back in Feb, last month he rated 1.50.3 for the mile at Menangle
    And yet tonight he could not even hold onto 6th to qualify for the semis and was beaten 28m

    Shessylah had won 7 of 10 but could only manage 10th in her heat of the fillies and if my reckoning is right she misses the semis - stitched up by her 7 draw and having to go back to last in a pretty hot field

    http://www.harness.org.au/racing/fie...20#BNC06112010

    and Jilliby Sylvester who had won 5 of 8 (his first 5) was bolting in last place in his heat - early moves are the order of the night

    Emma Stewart had a good night qualifying 7 for the semis but I reckon she would have expected all 10 to (maybe 9 as you have to expect a little bad luck)

    Saturday's semi fields are out

    http://www.harness.org.au/racing/fie...s/?mc=MX141120

    Emma Stewart has 5 in the 2yo Fillies 1st Semi but they should all finish first 6
    It would be some feat but it wouldn't be surprising if all her 17 semi participants made the finals (I'll go with 15)
    Clayton Tonkin has another 3 in his name

    (I couldn't get the fields on HRV but HRA worked)

    As expected Emma Stewart produced the first 5 in the 2yo Fillies 1st Semi and 1st and 3rd in the 2nd Semi
    - she could train the first 7 in the final! Congratulations to Anne again, LIR is a delight to watch
    (Congratulations to Rick too with Final Peace making the 3yo Final)
