.................. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH


Racing industry journalists are pumping up their own tyres with contrived ........ would not it be nice 'news' ...........

Too much of what is presented as 'journalism' is just plain nonsense ........... one wrote two 'as if' stories linking a reality in Melbourne with a 'hope' in Sydney.

Objective observers are left speechless ........... stop it.



................................the fourth horse in the poll, Still A Star, is largely unknown (except to racing afficionados) outside her home state of Tasmania. .................thanks to a campaign by part-owner Monica Ryan, whose father Bill trains the four-year old known in the stable as “Minnie″⁣, the mare rocketed up the charts in the final stages of voting.

If she were to win - and follow-up on the performance of first All-Star Mile winner Mystic Journey, a filly from Tasmania who scored in 2019 - it would be a real rags-to-riches story as she was bought for just $13,000 - just $2000 more than the $11,000 it cost to buy Mystic Journey.

Those ten  alone would be a cracking race. We have horses that won the Mackinnon, Cox Plate and Epsom in the Spring.

Then you have Behemouth and Russian Camelot who were also Group 1 winners inside the last six months.

Throw in the late invites and it will be close to the best race of the Autumn.

Sure is Pete
You’ve spent years on this forum abusing it for your own self driven goals. That being industry reemployment after being a previous failure

Time to bugger off you grub  :lol:

It's not perfect but agreed that's a great race as it, if they can get the last 4 right with say Mugatoo, last years winner Regal Power if he returns well today etc then it's a cracker.

Cheers to those guys who voted for Still A Star after my post. You have helped make a dream come true for Bill and Mary at a time when it is all important. Thanks again. Flatout.

Very politely ...  Bruce Clark puts it starkly ..... as this thread is left 'abandoned'


............ class and quality as well as dreamers and fairytales and the wildcards ............ expensive and extensive promotion..............what are the returns on investment

The race still lacks a sponsor ...........

The All-Star Mile’s chief spruiker has been Racing Victoria’s general manager of racing Greg Carpenter ............ “people from all walks of life, from casual sports fans to hardened racing enthusiasts, have really embraced the race,”

......Yes, horses from every state and New Zealand have made the top 10 cut and the feel-good stories........... but will it mean something more to the bottom line or a new bum on a seat and simple engagement in racing or the punt?

.............. WHY IS NO-ONE INTERESTED IN THE 'SOME' STAR MILE


....... why is no one demanding that the rules be changed to ensure it is a genuine WFA event ............... as it stands, the present concept will be blown-up if an elected rough-ride wins

RVL seemingly has no capacity to adapt to the reality of a flawed concept .......... presumably content to let an inflated field wreak its havoc.
