Sporty, I'll say two things...

1.  I hope your wife is OK.

2.  If you wanna make general comments about WW's calling talents that would be fine, but if you wanna "bag" the guy over a specific finish which you now say you haven't seen....I'd suggest you're the one who should be "thinking about it".[font]

I must say I was surprised when Youthful jack was called third today over my E/W bet Desuetude and it came up on the TV with the same placings (pretty sure anyhow)

Was a pleasant surprise when I got home that I had more than expected in the account with the placings reversed !

I mentioned that somewhere earlier Hamish, I backed Desuetude the place and was positive it ran 3rd.
Had a bit of a heart flutter when they put up YJ 3rd.

Sporty, maybe DD was referring to your wife re the accident she had the other week

IMO, WW is not calling much different now to what he did 20 years ago.....it's no great drama to get the odd photo wrong.

His tips might not stand close scrutiny though. He used to throw a bit on the punt years ago, he'd have been wise to stop !

Never seen a bloke go the wrong way in photos like Matt whats-is-name in near Sydney prov racing. Bloody uncanny, he must be cross-eyed.

Thank you shane....another who is past his due date....but one thing i'll still praise him for ...he still a very good judge in the tipping department....take his  picks  in the quaddie legs  when his calling ...and you'll be collecting more times then throwing em away....   emthup

Max....great callers don't get it wrong mate....and when they start knowing they do...they give the caper away...wayne must give it away...

Greg Miles called the wrong horse in front in the 2yo race, you want to give him to give it up?...they are humans, we all make mistakes.

Sporty......you gotta de-emotionalize your betting. I wouldn't even bother to listen to a race except I want to know about delays, races put back x minutes, track rating changes etc.  Stuff that you can use to help get a leg up. Once the betting closes, it's all out of your hands. Fire and Forget.......Fretting over photos, protests, or ill-judged rides just distracts from fruitful endeavour on the races ahead.

Max i love listening to race callers mate....hey i can quite easily watch a race and know what im on without having to hearing the race ....say there racing out at bullamakanka picnics tomorrow.......now the club can't decide which caller they should go with ...they have two options....either colin hodges or john tapp....now me personal i wouldn't punt at the place.....but seeing if john tapp going to call there ..i might have a wager what do you think....?

Is The Standard of Race Callers At An All Time Low?


What do you think the criteria should be for wanting to be a successful race caller?

I think its fine, they do an incredible job.

The old timers did not have television or constant replays to show up their mistakes.

I have enough trouble following one horse in a race how anybody can remember all the names and put them to sets of colours is beyond me.
