It seems every man and his dog wants to jump on the band wagon and bag Eagle Farm Race Track and everybody down to the milkman with the slightest involvement in getting the track to where it is now.
So to put some perspective into the argument, it is a brand new surface, with a 10 card race meeting held on it that had just received 200ml of rain the week leading into it, in a period of the year that sees grass go dormant and stop growing.
After the dust has settled and every man and his dog has had a whinge and laid the boot in, lets try and think about how the track actually played.
So the inside chopped up toward the end, name a track that has copped as much rain, still in it's infancy, that would have fared any better, fully matured tracks at this time of the year suffer all the same fate.
Now, if the track was so bad, why did we not see any surprise results, boil-overs, 100 to 1 shots winning in a canter ?
Why did we not see leaders winning all day, or horses from the tail of the field running over the top of everything in front of them ?
