I see that 'Sportsbet' has a market up for B'ville tomorrow . .

No doubt the other vultures will follow suit

Someone should explain to the Birdsville club or to RQ (or both) that the face to face bookies  travel up to 20 hours each way, and put up with whatever nature dishes up to them, so that they can provide atmosphere, and a service (and hopefully win a quid) . .

Their expenses must be huge; and if their holds are going to be shredded by these parasites, most of them will be having second thoughts about  future Birdsville Cups



Whoever authorises the corps to field on Birdsville, should stop dreaming about money, and start dreaming about an 'iconic bush meeting without on course bookies' and the number of patrons who will say 'no thanks' to that concept

Perhaps the local business people, who have probably got more between the ears than the QR nabobs, should have a whisper into a few ears as well . . since the "Races" provide a huge amount of their annual income in one week

Progress . . My Ar$e

My mate tells me that not only has RQ invited the corps. to 'do' Birdsville . . . pun intended . . . but also has invited them to the Longreach Cup on 24 Sep

I remember Longreach being given a TAB meeting last year as a 'one off' 125th birthday present . .



Be careful what you wish for  :whistle:



Bet the few remaining, travel weary western odds-ologists who have supported Longreach for years, are tickled pink about the 'encore'
