Latest developments from Perth: Much hyped youngster Dark Target made his debut yesterday at Belmont & scored a slashing track record win. A part owner has denied that there was a big offers from Hong Kong for the horse but some say there was.
 
Young trainer lost potential topliner Cairnduff to a tendon injury after Saturday's first up run. He is destined for the show ring & he also will be without recent Belmont winner Sedaka Star after it sustained injuries sufficient to see it euthenased today after Belmont yesterday.   
 
Cheers
The Ark.

Perth Racing Track Manager Geoff Murphy has rated the Belmont surface as good with today's penetrometer at 10 am rating 6.1.   

The rail returns to the three metre position after the previous two meetings were held at 12 metres.   

The surface is extremely even with all horses afforded similar running.   

With easterly winds forecast for Saturday, expect on pace runners to be suited.

20 years today that champion hoop Rod Kemp had the fall to end his career. He is a part owner in yesterday's Group III Belmont Sprint winner Beat THe Storm  - fitting !

I was reading the Saturday Roebourne Stewards Report & noticed that they fined a young apprentice, Kiryn Waldeck $100 for a celebratory gesture just before the post. She was more than 2L in front. It was her first winner after 10 rides. 100 smackers is a fair bit for the apprentices. How about a reprimmand guys ? Like you are giving senior jocks in town.

Buckley's dream ride with Miss Andretti

20 June 2007
aapracing

Millionaire businessman Sean Buckley had modest hopes for Miss Andretti when he bought a majority share in her as a tried horse.

She had won nine races in Western Australia in 15 starts, including three at stakes level, so Buckley sent her to Victorian trainer Lee Freedman in the hope he could get her to be competitive at a similar level in Melbourne.

Her former trainer in Perth, David Mueller, retained a 25 per cent share.

"When we bought Miss Andretti we were really hoping to capture one or two black-type races," Buckley said.

"Lee kept saying she might win a Group race at some stage."

It was first reported on Perth Turf Talk that there were big offers for the horse. Ernie Manning came out next morning on Racing Radio & virtually repeated the Turf Talk report. Part owner & trainers husband of trainer came out next morning & riduculed those reports on Racing Radio. He is NOW admitting that there are offers of "up to $750,000". I am led to believe it could be a little bit more & that the initial offer which he denied was around half of the current bid.

Perth Racing Track Manager Geoff Murphy has rated the track good with the weather showery for Saturdays Belmont Park Meeting.

“The penetrometer was 6.2 at 10 am but there hadn’t been any rain as yet.  The Met Office has informed me that there is plenty on the way and I expect the rating to be down graded substantially by Saturday morning.”

The rail moves to the 15 metre position and the pad looks perfect for all runners.

Forecast for Saturday
Showers, easing late in the day. Fresh to strong and gusty W/NW winds shifting

Belmont 30 June

Track Manager Geoff Murphy has rated the track good with overcast conditions forecast for todays Belmont Oaks meeting.

"John Claite rode a horse over the track this morning and suggested that it was on the softer side of good.  We have had 31.5 mls for the week with 5 ml overnight."

"With scattered showers forecast for the rest of the day, Stewards may down grade the track after the first."

"The penetrometer at 7 am today was 6.3"

The rail moves back to the six metre position from the 15 metre pad and the track is very even.

Bit a news from WA. A steward has been barred from being part of a racing forum according to the West.

Any idea which racing forum, Arkenstone?  And would it be a gallops, harness or greyhounds steward?

Apart from those little questions, can they actually enforce that?

Its Perth Turf Talk, HorseWithNoName - can I just call you America ??  ;D.The site is a racing site with a little bit of general sport. Got very popular since they introduced news home page. Big coverage of bush meetings. Big forum 450 + members. Powers that be in WA are peeved with it. The forum is really busy.

Track Manager Geoff Murphy has rated the Belmont track as good with the weather fine for today's Winter Cup meeting.

"52.5 mls of rain have fallen at Belmont for the week, but the last of that rain was Tuesday."

"The penetrometer this morning is 6.2 and the rail will move out to the 9 metre spot.  The surface is very even."

Saturday
Fine until a few showers develop towards evening. Moderate N'ly winds freshening during the day.

Precis:      Fine Max 22         

The best racing surface is from the rail to about five horses off the fence.  With the forecast for Northerly winds, horses close to the pace will be suited.

Thanks, Ark. 

I'm fine with Horse or HWNN if you like, but please don't call me America. :-\

Isn't it funny how the powers that be can get upset over people being able to speak their minds and show displeasure about mismanagement or questionable practice?  (Or whatever else the powers that be don't want us to question.)

They really do prefer to sweep things under the carpet and not acknowledge that they may not always be right.

Let it all hang out, folks, and tell it how it is!!!

Horse, it was only a tounge in cheek thing - America sang A Horse With No Name.  :-X

As for the steward going on the forum, he actually went on under his real name - mistake ! Then a couple of clowns asked him questions re riding tactics on certain horses that had already been dealt with by the stewards. I can see both sides here. But I know the site has gotten under certain ppls skin & powers-that-be have tried to impede them in a couple of ways. Cheers Ark, the placid one .
