    wow...that is a hell of a lot of "Inters" winners. Might have to rub up next to R.Watson to get some luck.

    With the longshots getting up in R3 at Shep tonight we had a jackpot for the First Four
    It is amazing how the lure of a $3k start to the pool can see R4's First Four pool balloon out to nearly $21k

    Question *

    A little off track here but it must have felt similar to a NZ invasion at Launceston last Sunday when Emma Stewart came to town and won 4 of the 6 races she contested
    Why would Vic's leading stable be picking off $7800 races? (and of course the $20k Cup) I imagine it did however constitute a big event. Did you go Pat?

    Yes I did go Kev and thanks for bringing that up, I was ...... off about that approach to the racing at launceston from "the big end of town". I didn't want to appear to be a whinger regarding this issue especially as they had Major Secret come down and take out the cup winning by 21 metres, starting at $1.10 and beating a couple of old ex Victorian claimers. This does nothing for the local competition in my opinion and the harness industry is struggling down here.

    I dont know one person who went to watch Major Secret race. I was extremely tempted to approach the 2 legends and tell them to piss off back to the 10 race meetings a week in Victoria and across the border in NSW. But we do see this happen time and time again from Albany to Burnie and the end result is the forcing out the smaller trainer and owners. Tasmania did have a local resident rule either 3 months or 3 starts for a few races at one stage but I have not seen it applied this year. I don't know what the answer is but walking through the stables and looking at local owners and trainers, the disappointment was palpable.

    It is now going to be part of a Big Monday at Melton - it is going to be a day meeting before the scheduled night meeting
