    Wasn't this tiered system a trial ? When does it end because I think most would agree that it isn't working for anyone but the TAB and SKY.
    Don't die wondering !

    Teecee,

    Just another wholesome example of the numerous inept attempts by people of all sorts of questionable qualifications and ability to"help" harness racing. The game has just about been "helped" into it's bloody grave by a procession of well meaning morons and self serving industry advocates from my observations over the last 48 years.

    Just read that article again. No way has it lead to more even racing and less odds on favorites ! We currently have the most uneven fields that I have ever seen. Especially with no standing start handicaps. And with the big stables raiding the cheap races I don't see many more battlers winning races.
    Don't die wondering !

    From Western Australia - Handicapped on win only earnings:-

    http://www.rwwa.com.au/home/racing/i...odel-7118.html and http://www.rwwa.com.au/home/racing/h...hwoe-7104.html which includes a pdf when you click on an example Race Program here

    I believe, here in Victoria, a couple of $ earnings handicapping proposals have been put forward.

    All states are still working toward a national system?

    Does Vic have a general odds on problem or is it really just one stable?
