Will there be any accountability for the purchasers of Kosciuszko tickets?

The 2KSKY Media machine runs ads simply saying that punters should buy a ticket without giving any credible reason to do so.

The purchase price of tickets purchased by 'individuals' should be refunded as a display of good faith.

Presumably the sale of tickets is aimed at country race clubs hoping that 'winning' will give them the right to share in the spoils of sponsoring a local contender --  arranging a tribal contingent to be 'on course' will only bolster the appearance of support for the other mountain race run on the day.

The K concept may not have long to go before it is abandoned -- the smart-set will be scheming to have a city-class horse or two smoked in to knock off the dough.

Mair ends up with egg all over his face again after the draw today  :lol:


Given he’s constant display of ignorance, guesswork and blatant lies you’d think he’d walk away from an industry that has already rejected his services.

2KSKY say some 215,000 'tickets' were purchased

........ facts are facts needing to be understood.............. consider it a lottery............ 14 'winners' have a potential payout of, say,  $500,000 for a $5 ticket for a single-ticket buyer......... that converts to a 1/15,000 chance ........  a minuscule probability of getting a ticket ........ but, compared to most lottery and lotto products .... is it a fair bet.

........... over and out to the master mathematicians.

My gut feel was 'no' -- and I do not believe RNSW should be permitted to run a lottery.

This nonsense will unfold.

Reality may be dawning

.................. on checking the T&C, it seems that the 'winner' with the first placed horse would have a maximum payout of some $250,000................. for one of a planned field of 250,000 tickets @ $5.

......... the 'sense' of buying a ticket is not at all clear ........... and that flows on to the thought that the T&C be recast so that it would be clearly sensible to enter a fair contest.............. the point should be to attract and build interest ..... not get the punters to pay twice ... when they buy a ticket and then when they place bets.


The minimum amount payable to a successful Sweep Winner is $2,975.However, Racing NSW estimates that the total value of prizes for ‘Slot Winners’ will range from between $232,900 for the winner whose horse finishes first to $3,000 for the winner whose horse finishes last.

A headline with no meaning:  The Kosciuszko - World's Richest Country Race

 Are acceptors from Canberra in low-way races normally relegated as 'emergency' starters?

If so --what is the reason for that?

Canberra’s Matt Dale is set to have a runner in the $1.3 million feature but no horse has been finalised yet --Notation, Coup De Main and Superstar Bob are expected to be potential options to fill the slot.

Still no mention of Danny Williams neddy Floki.

I’m not surprised you’re unaware that the very talented Floki is racing tomorrow

Much easier for you to bitch and moan than look at the form guide

Floki   --  First-up after 80 week spell and having first start for a new trainer. Has won or placed in all races to date. Looks a safe bet.

.............. come the mountain day --------- FLOKI ................$5 on @ 25 for a $125 collect.

........... there is no 'country race' run in the city that is credibly the richest in the world


.....not sensible either is going the early crow about the prospects of the winner of winter-race -- one now notable only for the interference that wrecked it and the massive T andF4 dividends that followed -- $20k&125k.

I only put that in the heading to stir up people like you   :lol:

Front Page made them look second rate in the Creswick wily. How good was that when asked for an effort  :clap2:

They have knocked back a big offer from Hong Kong reportedly (what constitutes an "offer" can be dubious sometimes e.g. "Yes we buy him but pay later").

He is $6 second favourite behind Snitz who is toppie for the John Carlton Cup at Grafton on Sunday.

3rd favourite Handle The Truth was 2nd to Viridine in the Listed Civic Stks on Saturday.

Great race coming up.

No offense PP , but not sure how a race including "Handle the Truth, " Snitz " and co makes it a " great " race. Campaigners of that quality go around every week . Maybe you meant competitive. Believe me I am not on the edge of my seat waiting for it to happen.

...... a racing hoax

The so-called 'richest' country race 'in the world' is just a hoax.

The RNSW  intention, plain and simple, is to ensure that, on Everest-day, entourages of travelers from country NSW, are on-course to support local 'champions' that managed to get a start.

These 'rural exploited' are presumably precluded from the hand-outs of tickets to swell the appearance of a crowd in the members-stand.

............... this is a dare-to-be-great marketing tactic intended to promote one day when Sydney actually gets a crowd ....... those so then pictured 'in the crowd' should have their names published so the master-in-lunacy can prepare a case for their kids to be put in charge.

There are a lot of people who follow country racing and the feature country races are a great spectacle. The new concept of having Grand Finals in the city have been a great success. The TAB Highways were only supposed to run for 6 months before they thought interest would peter out. Tomorrow's Highway had 21 acceptances. More than any other race in the country.

Look at it this way. If people like wily and I are taking an interest in this race, and you are not, then who is missing out?

Grafton carnival kicks off on Sunday gunbower and Snitz has come up at $1.80 in the Carlton and will carry 62 kg.

Toby Edmonds setting Ocean's Addict for the Cup. Waller usually sends a couple up and Gai has won the Cup several times. Kris Lees has said that the McKell favourite is being set for the Cup.

Then there is the Ramornie. Graff and Snitz have been mentioned as possible runners.

You should follow the 4 day carnival. You might just find it a bit more of a spectacle than you think  ;)

You know it's a success when syndicators are placing horses with country trainers to specifically target races like the Kosciuszko & Country Championships.

PP you miss the point . I am not a spectacle punter or whatever that is . I bet every day so naturally I have a more than adequate knowledge of Country Racing. To me a 6/1 winner of a maiden at Tuncurry has exactly the same excitement as a 6/1 winner at Randwick . Couldn't care less. It is only the truly great horses that make me take off the punters hat. And Snitz and co hardly fill the bill . But be assured I will be watching them with great interest.

Jazirat was dispersed by Godolphin on-line through Inglis and picked up by Dynamic for $70k just recently.

Last ran on the 2nd June in the Godolphin blue.

Goes around in the Dynamic colours for Ciaron Maher in the 2nd at Newcastle tomorrow and a big chance of recouping $15k in what is a pretty weak maiden over a mile.

Yulong Base is another that was purchased by Aussie Bloodstock and sent to Cody Morgan, ran 2nd first up for them at Scone last Friday.

Suggest it would be aimed as a Country Champ type horse.

Camp Rifle was another from the Godolphin draft that went for only $12k - in tomorrow at Grafton
