    Exclamation USA / Canada

    Keep Rockin another Aussie to be doing well in the US

    Go to the bottom third of the story (but you will find a link to the replay under the title)
    This was on a sloppy track but still 1.50.1 - pretty much thanks to Soho Burning Love

    Being not only a talent but also a valuable breeding proposition later - a full sis to My Mackenzie and a half to Vincent, you would think she should have fetched as much as $400k (but probably didn't)

    Keep Rockin could be a ready made replacement for Shartin. Same owner. Wonderful maternal line that just keeps getting stronger. I'll be bidding strongly for Mackenzie's first foal at next year's yearling sales (subject to being a sole 1st division Tattslotto winner in the meantime)!

    I will settle for Kept For Pleasure's current Bettors weanling if it goes through next year's yearling sales (and if I win 1st division Powerball)

    Looking at the way trainer Ron Burke totally dominates
    It is pretty much the norm for him to have won 4x's the next best (which is the margin he holds so far this season)
    Looking at 2019 (because it was not Covid affected) he won $21.41M to Tony Alagna's $5.99M (Alagna does have less than of the starters)

    I also found this Harnesslink article from 2yrs ago when he reached 10,000 wins
    "It all started when my dad sold the family business selling cars in 1981. We had two horses then. Now, I have about 300 and about 70 people on my staff," said Burke

    Reports of the USofA being world leaders is greatly exaggerated
    If you want to contact USTA for instance you are hard pressed to find anything other than phone numbers (There are email options for member services and stats but nothing else)
    So I think I will just contact Northfield Park directly and there you find nothing but phone numbers - get with the times America

    While I am having a bash, what is with measuring time in fifths. James gets it

    While horse racing has long employed photo-finish technology and video replay to ensure correct finishing orders and accurate returns to horsemen and horseplayers, the North American Standardbred sport in particular still reports race times in fifths of seconds, while largely using time-keeping technology developed in the first half of the 20th century.

    And, as for that scant inch? In a 1:52 mile, an inch of separation would render competitors only 0.0018 seconds—eighteen ten-thousandths of a second—apart.

    Yet, in practice, horses who finish up to three-quarters of a length apart are credited with the same time in past performance lines.

    I thought the Messenger Stakes would have been run and won 5 minutes ago

    But I must be wrong as I cannot find a story about it or a betting agency covering it

    It makes you appreciate our replays - I cannot believe they put up with being blinded by the lighting when entering the home straight
