Got 2 in my black book, Gin bu5 he should be getting 4 or 5.

It just depends which ones. The stable mates might knock him off in a couple.

A bigger day for Peters than Pike, I suspect  :chin:

Donít know who I hate more Pikey or myself.
Had all of the winners anchored with Forceful & Sentimental Gift who both ran 2nd.

Greed & stupidity are the 2 punting evils🤮. I have both .......in spade fulls 🤪

It can be cruel Wily.

I thought he had 8 good chances out of 9 - didn't like race 2 where he ran 2nd yet from 9 rides he's had 5 winners, 3 2nds and a slaughter of Stageman who went to the line untested  :sick:

I won on the day but of course I loaded into Stageman  :shutup: still it was a peach on Sublime Image in the last  :icecream:

If anyone wonders why I hate the bloke. Look at the ride that Gin points on Stageman.
Insipid compared to the way he ride a few others

Personally Iím thanking the horse.
Regal Power won the race for our man Pikey :no1:


Oh, and Bob Peters who told him to ride a better race than his slaughter job on the one in previous race

There were a couple of slaughter jobs in that race.

Not sure why but whenever you back Pike in the Peters colours, he always seem to be back end of the field or is just me?

Because that's where Bob prefers his horses to be ridden.

Who gives a shit how Bob prefers them ridden, it's how Wily prefers them ridden (to win every time) that counts, for Chrissakes.

Geoffrey & Sobig, I pick up on your sarcasm but anyone with a instinct of racing can tell thereís those that Pikey thinks are winning chances and those that are not

The stark difference in riding style is there for all to see :bulb:

Thankfully, I suspect old Bob gets the shits occasionally and gives William a wake up call. His comments after Regal Power saluted certainly indicate this

My advice to old Bob is to be a tad more ruthless and less loyal  :no1:

Come on Wily, I was counting the money at the 800 you could see him start to move and angle out looking for clear air.

Perth racing Piked


The prominent role that WP plays in Perth racing is akin to the situation in Hong Kong where a couple of jockeys  similarly rule the roost.

One problem is the pressure put on these riders and the scrutiny of their every move.

Another is the implicit distortion of the betting markets for these races -- a real trap when the fields are inflated with runners cluttering the race but unable to win.

..... .......all up, these distortions make the racing unattractive as a betting opportunity.

Pete, if you can't win in WA or Hong Kong you should seriously think about taking up another hobby.  :bulb:

God almighty  I've got him finishing  1st or 2nd in every race

Each way multis perhaps?

Go for one of those combo multis for win and a separate one for the place. Even if he does not ride a winner and finishes in the place for all the races, you could have a nice a holiday to watch him in Perth live.   :lol:   :lol:

We will cheer for you and Pike in every race.  8-) 8-)

Once again Iíve got about 6 of Bob Peters in my black book but will end up backing  the wrong ones  :lol:

Pike only on 2 of them after slaughtering the others at their recent starts so god only knows what will happen

 Not when ridden like that in a race that was devoid of pace

Especially after his ride on Electric Light in the previous  :sad:

Not saying this happens regularly but sometimes when you watch WA races, Pikeís opponents sometimes seem to race him at times instead of racing against the field.

He is up near the lead as the leader kicks but the n runs out of steam leaving him in front too soon. The other ones are the races devoid of pace but prior to the race, you could see a lot of pace.

Strange day all over the country yesterday with many favourites getting beaten.

Some of the rides are baffling to say the least.

I get more black book runners in Perth than any other state 💡

Having gone over the replays quickly it looks like it was a day where you couldn't make ground wide  :chin: seemed to be a lane about 4 horses wide and anything that pulled out wider just seemed to labour.

Both of Pike's rides mentioned here, Flirtini was another, nothing in the Railway etc etc.

Interesting Pike stayed inside in the last, popped off the fence in the straight and won easily.
