    I know it is Caulfield's carnival time and we have come to expect it midweek for the Flemington carnival but $500k at a midweeker is unreal

    Very impressive. Apart from the Cup the Wednesday meeting shits all over the Sat meeting.

    At Randwick today, despite halving the prize for some of the big races, they are racing for about $6M. That will probably be over of HRV's total prizemoney for the next 12mths during these Covid-19 times (assuming we can still race)
    How can they/do they do it?

    This time, I was meaning this specific Saturday. How can they afford to pay out $6m in these uncertain times - I suppose they will say that they cut it back by a couple of million but many ASX companies seem to be suspending their dividends altogether

    I can't imagine us having a $400k race go ahead after receiving only 3 Acceptors.
    And a $15m race on Saturday (albeit a slots race) is half Vic's harness prizemoney for the year!

    About $30m bet on the Cup on the Vic tote alone (including the Quaddie)
    Amazing when you think punters are prepared to bet on a race where we have a horse starting favourite that we have never seen in this country
    or a winner that has only ever had one start in this country - last year's Cup
    It is just another form of Lotto
    I love it but horses breaking down is hard to take
