Fallon Services have indeed done a fine job on the lighting.

I am sure they could do just as a good a job at Toowoomba if required.

I will be there MagiC.

Maybe we could have a foot race over 200m. You on the turf and me on the cushion.  :)

What strikes me about these synthetic tracks( SunCoast, CAN-ACT, Geelong Thor. is the ability of horses to win from back in the field, more so than grass tracks. Anyone else notice this ?

No point, coinswell.  After the next meeting at Toowoomba, the track will deteriorate very quickly and be UNRACEABLE on the following Sunday morning.

They may get the chance if the club votes yes. The proposal includes upgrading of the lighting.

Sometimes, MM.  Depends on the preparation of the track.  When SC is turned over in between races the first few on the pace have an advantage, IMO.  When it's wet and firm as it was on Friday after the downpour, outside runners from back in the field had a picnic.  (PS  You won't read this anywhere else.)

Got me thinking now, dubbledee. Do they just run a tractor  around dragging a board to flatten the track between races ?

when looking at the picture of the finish line of the grass track under lights i see that big shadow.
could that pose a problem to a horse that finishes out wide ?
you may have an opinion on this magic.

We talking about the Cushion ?

They run a harrow through it, and it would be only once if at all during race day

Bit ordinary if they don't smooth it over between races....Bob may not allow it.

Years ago the old Albion Park sand was levelled out by the tractor drawn gizmo after every race.

A couple of years back I was forever backing ex-Kiwi HOOKER ROAD at SC.  The little fellow was as tough as teak, and on a few occasions was the victim of less-than-perfect rides.

He's now in Melbourne jumping the fences.  He starts his new prep at Moonee Valley on Fraaarday night and I'll be there to see him. :)

Whatever it is you're drinking, Larsy, I suggest you switch to a Coke (without the rum).  :lol:

He ran 4th on Friday night after having every chance.  (Young Avdulla looks a promising rider.) He wasn't opposed to a bunch of stars but they went at breakneck speed.

Hooker Road is renowned for getting himself in a lather before he races.  Friday night was a bit cooler, but a couple of hours before his race he was standing in his stall a quivering wreck.  I've never seen a horse "vibrating" the way he was.

Anyway, he should be in for good jumping season.  emthup
