Anyway, night all, I'm off to look at some videos of those opposing GREY ASSIGNMENT tomorra at the Farm.  The $1.95 looks tight, but gee I think he'll win.

I dunno what I'm doing looking at a favourite, but that might be better than taking $2 the fourth horse for the place. :shy:

After a lovely morning to kick-off with, clouds are building up.  Forecasters' prediction of a shower or two might yet come to fruition. >:(  Hope that's not the case 'coz I've just sprayed a crop of nut-grass with glyphosate. :chin:  Just give us a few more hours, pleeeeez.

Regardless, I'm off to Eagle Farm to cheer on our Place Challenge bets.  Pleasing to have several new share-holders with the courage to risk their money in my "company".   Good luck, fellas.

I've bitten the bullet and backed Grey Assignment at $2.00 fixed the win. :x:

Some people I know have brought Norse Code back from "retirement" to show fair form on the Twba Cushion.  Hopefully he can earn some dollars for them in Race 6.

Good luck, to all punters.  :beer:

Gee whizz DD, ya could finally be on course to become the next Harry Potter (Beachmere version, anyway)   :noteworthy:

I just saw the movie Julie & Julia which was based on the blog success of a public servant / unknown chef.  Julie Powell began a blog with only her rels reading it but it just grew and grew over a year to become blog of the century.  Then came the book, then the movie.

Who would play DD, I wonder  :chin:.  Given the mix of punting and gardening hints so far I reckon Don Burke would be good.  Russel Crow could be me if I get a gig.  How about Jerry Lewis for Ted E and Jabba The Hut for that Funtantes bloke. 

Any suggestions for Bob the Builder?

My only bet of the day. Got $2.12. And I must say it was fairly annoying really

Well, I think I'll have better daze at the races.     :lol:   

Start off with usual back-marker PUERTO VALLARTA jumping forward from its wide gate, sitting 3-wide in midfield, and proceeding to go backwards.  Beaten a furlong.

Then Scriven on GREY ASSIGNMENT was forced 3 wide by Ms Bogenhuber soon after the jump.  He had no option but to go back.  That cost him the race.

Then in Race 4 HUBERT was all set to get a nice run one-out, when something forced its way along the fence at the 900.  He was then 3-wide for the trip.  Making his run in the straight he was behind Ms Bogenhuber, who drifted out about 5 horses taking HUBERT's running.  She beat HUBERT home by a short neck. Protest lodged.  Dismissed. :rant:

Thankfully things went right with the BOOGIE WOOGIE in the last, but I left the course thinking I shoulda DRUNK the Roundup, rather than use it to kill weeds.

 :shy:

Can't recall a time when there's been such a air of "doom and gloom" in the training ranks. :no:

Two main issues continue to be thrown up. 

One, the prizemoney levels. 

Said one fellow " we were better off under the QTC system".  Said another "I wouldn't like to be a young person starting off now".

Two, the heavy racing program. 

"I used to get time to spend with my family on Sundays."  The double- header on Fridays got plenty of knocks.  "There's no way I'll be racing on a Friday night" said one leading mentor.  "I reckon the delay in releasing noms for the SC inner track was due to a 'ring-around' looking for extra entries.  They didn't ring me 'coz they know what I think", was the view of another industry leader.  Said another "Who in their right mind would program two meetings on New Year's Eve?"

(Incidentally, this year there's a meeting in Brisbane on Sunday, December 26.)

The Albion Park imbroglio is in the minds of many.  "Dogs and trots should be racing inside here", said one high-profile trainer, pointing to the inside of EF.  :/

The wily BJ Smith was as stunned as the rest of us after his stayer IVY'S LEAGUE staged a major form reversal yesterday.  "How could ya back him" said BJ as he drowned his sorrows in a cool ale.  "He's never led in his life!!".  "But, gees, wasn't he fit, eh?"  Yes, BJ, but we expect that of you.  :lol:

BJ's son led IL around the ring.  Last time he did that, IL won at EF.  Might be something in that.  :chin:

He also mentioned Spurs playing their roll in the form reversal.

Heathcote has one at the SC tomorrow night in race 3.

Will it run and if so is it a decent chance?

I backed it first up, and it went like a camel.  Fair win last prep though, and might run a distance.  Not sure where, though. :chin:

My understanding is that the old QRL thought they could spend the money from ProductCo more wisely than the clubs were doing, and built a big bin at Deagon where the TAB payments are now stored.

It's a matter of opinion whether that approach is justifiable, legal, etc, etc, and whether the outcome is any better (than previously achieved).  People who know a lot more than I do hold the view that the role of the "principal club" is to channel funds directly to the Clubs.

As for building stables, probably some borrowings have supplemented other reserves.

I can just picture BB swimming in that money bin like Scrooge McDuck.
Wheres does the QRIS,QTIS,QTIS600 bonus prizemoney that is not won go? Isn't paid upfront by stakeholders when they register for these schemes?

Dunno, Spinner.  But from their silence on such issues, the Owners' Association are quite satisfied with the way things are being handled.

QTIS monies is guaranteed in the RQ annual budgets and is based on historical data.

It can hurt badly if all bonus's available are won. This would blow the budget out the window.

Obviously at the end of the year there can be a surplus or a loss but it is all associated with the performance of the Queensland bred horse over the season.

If a bonus is not won it does not necessarily mean that at years end there is going to be a surplus like some imagine.

The QTIS pay ups in no way meet the the total commitment. On the other hand the QTIS 600 payments go a long way towards the guaranteed takeout that occurs within the QTIS series.

Open question Vadim, nothing implied, but are the outcomes (e.g unders / overs; cost benefit etc) reviewed annually and reported on and to whom?

Sorry DD to impinge on your blog space, but you live such an interesting life  :wacko: with issues that can only be described as Medusian.  If Vadim's response is complex and generates a want to respond further I will raise a thread on the matter.  :shutup:

Do tell us more on how to win on the punt today, and the benefits of Roundup v Zero.  :/
