If you come last in the sweep you usually get your money back

Two months ago, it was one of the favourites. Then it runs like it has it's legs tied together in the Cox Plate. Then it pisses it in yesterday. Rubbish.

I knew I shouldn't have written it off. Many horses put in shockers at the valley. He tried to make his move in the cox plate but was 3 and four wide and was never in it. I'd have to watch the replay again but it wouldn't surprise me if under the big weight etc that Williams once getting to the turn realising it couldnt win pulled it up a tad to save it from a real gut buster.

For all the young players at home, yesterday proved just how important speed maps are to punters. There was never going to be much speed in that race and it favoured all of the front runners.

Man, going to work the next day after pocketing 28 million would be the greatest thing ever. You'd be completely untouchable.

such a terribly run cup. especially for what was one of the best fields we've seen in some time.

fair few jockeys should be spanked. half of them still asleep. williams rode dunaden like he did in the caulfield cup, except he seemed to forget there were more horses in this one and a much much longer distance. you just can't ride 3 wide and give the leaders 15 lengths going to the last 1000m in a cup field. faves just gave the front runners way too much. should have got on bikes earlier.

green moon well it was suspect it was even running in the first place. horses like brigantin and shawardi we know deserved to be in that field. form is starting to count for nothing going into the cup. just plain ridiculous.

will rethink my betting strategy for future cups (not that strategy helps). why did i back dunaden? only 4 back to back winners in 152 years. defying history much? meh. thats me done for the year.

the problem was the lack of speed. If the jockeys got going earlier those back markers who can quicken once let down would have raced more dour and had less of a chance of winning. It was the muddling pace early on that set it up for the front runners and no horse was going to run on from the back of the field to challenge. It was a shame but somebody needed to put the pressure on a lot earlier than they did. It's easy to say in hindsight but theres been a few races like that this spring that you wonder why they were allowed to be run like that. A truer tempo and the race completely changes.

Not sure if anyone was watching betting trends or bigbets yesterday but apparently there was a $300,000 boxed trifecta of Winchester, Sanagas and Mourayan laid. Can anyone explain the logic of this? (Besides the guy is a complete fuckwit)

Even if it did get up, the pool would just be split 50,000 times so hes not gonna get anymore money than what is in the pool. Boxing the field for 100% wouldve cost $12k, for $300k he could have had 2400%~ (obviously wouldnt have paid $50k like it did yesterday if he had done this but he wouldve made a profit surely.)

I've got some money on the Oaks

$10 each way on Summerbliss
$10 place on Transonic
$5 each way on Zydeco (Just as a back up to the other two, it will pay for them if it comes through)


Transonic paying around $8 for the place was too good to turn down, it's placed in most of it's recent races... against these horses too.
