I backed the winner here and will count it as the luckiest collect I will get this year. Check out Eurasian Hanover the fav in the last, come from an impossible position in a mares trot at the last in Melbourne. A couple of the girls got out of shape at just the right time to allow Nathan Jack to slip back to the inside and keep getting the breaks with the leader going off stride metres from the line. But I am sitting there watching Eurasian Hanover not just come in contact with the pegs but in the end just decide to drive straight over the top of them like they weren't even there. So, being the eternal pessimist, I watched and waited for the horse to receive its inevitable disqualification...which never came. Dumbstruck, I just checked the vision again and still cannot believe it held the race. Sometimes I think just what parallel universe do I live in. So the link is here, what do you guys think? How many pegs must you drive under before it is deemed you have gained an unfair advantage? The stewards even noted it came into contact with pegs and used the sprint lane. What am I not getting?

I will invest all of my collect in lottery tickets in the morning!
