    Rod, I don't think you can accuse the stable of not plotting the best program for their horses. You have to remember that most of their topliners are juveniles and you can only target so many big races with them

    Yeah this. Their dominance has been largely restricted to 2yo and 3yo racing. With Vicbred, Breeders Crown, Oaks/Derby there is no incentive to travel. Travelled the 4yos and Chariots of Fire record is strong and won a Rising Sun with Ladies In Red. They have 'struggled' with older horses with most being stuck to Country Cups class. This is evidenced with their Vic Cup and Hunter Cup record, finally only breaking through this year with Act Now and Honolua Bay. Those two not really travelled yet - but both had long stints without racing in the past 12 months so not like they've been racing much in Vic either.

    Older horses that were GC horses were Safari who came along early in the piece before this dominance, Restrepo who was probably just a length or two off the very best but did go to a Miracle Mile and Perth ID, Guaranteed who went to a Miracle Mile but probably never hit his best again after that and Philadelphia Man who probably isn't in their top 20 horses but struck an easy ID series in WA winning 2x heats and won a Blacks a Fake in QLD. They have been happy to travel Mach Dan to Syd and QLD. I'm not really sure what horse and when they should have travelled more?

    That may be so Kev but you have to remember travelling to Sydney from Melbourne is just up the road compared to the distances WA horses have to traverse to get to Melbourne or Sydney let alone Brisbane.

    Forgot to add WA horses travelling to Melbourne or Sydney always receive the visitors draw who needs it.

    Thats all well a crown has fallen but why was this not sorted before the breeder's crown?
    IMO , I believe things like this turn folk off harness racing & with good reason.
    I know how I would feel if I had a horse in the breeders crown & was beaten by this sort of thing being sorted after the event.

    Likely to drag out with an appeal but maybe Clayton will just take over - the advantage of not training as a partnership

    The heading of this thread does not make sense to me.

    The heading of this thread is one of my best!

    Remarkable: worthy of attention
