    As well as Code Bailey's staggering Tk Rec in the Bendigo Cup
    I see Balraj was only 0.2 sec off the Goulburn record when he rated 1.52.7 last night

    I feel like any mention of Balraj should also include this footnote

    Got to give a mention to the old warhorse Courage Tells 12 years old and wins in 1:54:3 at GP last night.

    245 starts. Amazing animals aren't they Rod
    I was just looking at yesterday's Scottsdale Cup (it has to be the shortest home straight in the world) and marvelling at how winner Ideal World had been around in his 58 starts and ends up getting his biggest payday at Scottsdale
    Not exactly speed explosion stuff however as the MR was 2.10.7

    1.57.1 might not seem like a 'speed explosion' nowadays
    But this MR by 3yo filly Sew What in the first at Ararat tonight broke the 1790m Tk Rec by 0.1 secs

    Bloody game drive.

    That race and the racing at Busselton very entertaining last night. Don't think I'd watched too many from Busselton before.

    Yes, Brendan that Busselton track I think they only have 3 or 4 meetings a year thank goodness. I only raced a few horses there (not figuratively) many years ago that was enough. It's a wonder the horses don't get giddy going around
    although I think they have actually lengthened the straight since the old days.

    Scottsdale home straight just 4.5 metres longer than Broken Hill,

    Your comment made me check them Kev, I was surprised as I reckon Broken Hill is lucky to be 84.5m.
