Obviously no interest at all.


We'll have to wait till it's back over East.

He reminds me of Village Kid in the way he holds his head and his stride. 


The most impressive winner of the heats for sure.

It used to be one of the highlights of the racing calendar - all codes.

Some great memories. Was at Harold Park the night Koala King beat a vintage field in the final in March 1980.

Paleface Adios (everybody's favourite horse)
Pure Steel
Frosty Imp
Locarno

Koala King beats Locarno and Pure Steel might have got third in spite of one of the worst drives you will ever see in a big race.



Sadly we seem past those glory days. You'd think a $1.1 million dollar final might attract a lot of interest. The NSW win pool for heat 1 was only $10k - less than the previous race which wasn't a heat. By the time heat 3 came around the win pool fell to $7k - roughly the same they held on the last at Tamworth trots.

Pacing is a very patient wagering medium and I don't think people have the patience they used to. And there are a multitude of entertainment options at nights on the weekend that don't include going out to the trots - especially on a cold winter's night.

Best I can offer up  :shy:

....actually I didn't notice that there was a $1.10 favourite in the last heat last night so that would skew any stats. In fact the NSW TAB and Tatts both held more in the trifecta pool than they did in the win pool for that race.

The trots are definitely in decline and have been for many years. 


Personally I think it's a better day (night) out than the races.


Not only do you get to see your horse hopelessly trapped 3 back on the pegs but you get to see it multiple times.


I don't know why the trots have fallen out of favour. 


I just know it's a bloody shame.

Soho Tribeca the outstanding winner of the second set of heats too.


If he draws well for the final he is going to be very hard to beat.


Chicago Bull a big (easy) run.


Lenny going well too.

Lenny cost me a bundle last round. He was very poor I thought. Never again

Lazarus gets the easiest heat of the series. Ohoka Punter a moral quinny

Interested to see Soho Tribeca from the draw

I reckon if Tara can beat the bull tonight, the final is at his mercy with a fair draw

Very easy win Chicago Bull.  Man but he is tiny.  He looks like he should be in a pony race. 


Big motor though.


Soho beaten but not disgraced.  Lenny good too.  Both fairly soft runs as they had already qualified. 


Lazarus finally takes a heat.  He's the dark horse (literally) for me. 


Hasn't overly impressed me but he has a big rep and a great record.

The race was run to suit Lazarus, he loves it like that. Speed on all the way.  A big win and equally a big run from Have Faith in Me who looks to be back to his best 3yo form.

Soho has Lenny covered no matter how they draw. Only other winning hope in the final, with the right run is Tiger T

Chicago Bull races best when saved for a run - not on the lead.


Bit like Koala King.  If he gets the right run, they won't hold him off. 


Draw for final will be very interesting.

Soho and Lenny will have it tough from there.


Makes this a very open race.

Mark Purdon, Kim Prentice and Chris Alford joined RSN 927AM program Gait Speed today when hosts Jason Bonnington and Blake Redden prodded for answers to the biggest questions.

Their hopes have all drawn the front line outside pole marker Tiger Tara, but Purdon and Prentice intimated Lazarus and Soho Tribeca wouldn’t be running the gate.

That would potentially open the door for Lennytheshark, the eight-year-old Victorian with genuine gate speed and strength, and Alford declared the fan favourite had the ability to lead, it was just a matter of whether they wanted to over the 2936m journey.

“I’m pretty sure that if we pressed the button early (Lennytheshark) can cross Tiger Tara, but whether that’s going to be in the best interests of the horses later in the race is another thing,” Alford said. “We will go through all the scenarios and come Friday we will know where we are at.”

Prentice, having suggested Soho Tribeca wouldn’t be in an early dogfight, instead urged Purdon to do the bulk of the work by advancing his favourite to the breeze and pressuring the likely leader.

“If they go hard enough early, I wouldn’t mind popping around to the breeze,” Prentice said. “I don’t think the lead time will be that quick … but I really think Mark has to drive Lazarus (so that he) is eyeballing Tiger Tara at the mile.”

For his part, Purdon said he expected Lazarus would be placed one out-one back or two back in the running, and he would then decide when to make his move.

“You want it to be a staying test. It will just depend how it’s run when you make a move,” he said. “In the event if they do back off I’ll be making a move, if they don’t I’ll be waiting a little longer.”

For the first time in years I watched the  final .......great race and good winner.

Typical Sky Racing have a country trotting race with a couple of grand in win pool programmed to go a minute or two after the race.

Just a reminder why  I can't watch Sky..........they are pathetic greedy bastards.

Great run the winner.  Did the work and still too good.


Chicago Bull is a goer but he's no Koala King.  Had the right run and should have won if good enough.


Strange drive on Soho.  He motored home when it was all over.

That was the real Lazarus.
I had my doubts but no more.

A better more aggressive drive on Lenny would have been good to see but still a great spectacle

Fremantle Pacing Cup was a strange race last night.


Mighty run from Lazarus - 3 wide the whole trip and beaten a head.


Chicago Bull raced in the breeze and couldn't hold them off.


Exact same drive on Soho Tribeca as the Inter Final.


Got on the back of the winner but not produced until the race was over. 


Encourage all to watch it.

Getting stranger.  Last two runs Soho Tribeca isn't put into the race until it's all over.


Last night in the W.A Pacing Cup he sits in the death, runs to the lead, and then holds off Chicago Bull.


Where was the aggression before? 


Anywho, replay.
