Racing Talk / CAUTIONS FOR CAULFIELD
« Last post by Peter Mair on 27 minutes ago »

Knowing that the wily one selected the longshots is only to be expected -- every week.

The mere mortals are also impressed with the Pegger who routinely reveals his insights after the race  -- but appears to have a system that few others can replicate.

......there would seem to be a commercial opportunity here for someone to explore with the Pegger.

To be fair -- Monty had Self Sense in as his long-last 5th selection and overall had 7 of the 9 winners in his top 5.

.......even so I doubt many of the modest TAB punters would have enjoyed the results.

The only blind Freddy is you, Peter Mair and your fellow dumb arse ignorants

I backed Self Sense at the massive odds and almost pulled off another with Rhythm To Spare

Sadly, I was too lazy to do the form.....like you and the other dumbos and Sams Image got under my guard, costing me a fat early quaddy

The penny will surely drop soon for Mair he has to do his form

..........another ripper day at Caulfieldon Saturday............ a ripper-off of TAB punters and a likely benefit to RVL corporate sponsors.

Even for you diehards the penny must be about ready to drop.

......we are now in blind-freddy territory.

I was being kind to the RVL administrators

........ but I am inclined to agree that there is no excuse for RVL inflating fields to deny a fair race.

Just look at Caulfield on Saturday............ what would a royal commission make of the routine abuse of TAB punters on Saturdays?

Racing Talk / PROTEST!
« Last post by Dave on 2018-Apr-22, 10:07 PM  »
A couple of points that punters don't take into account in these situations.......
Number one.....The vast majority of Jockeys now use spurs as opposed to previous to the silly whip rule when probably less than 5% of jockeys wore spurs
Number two...... not using the whip as many times as you want isn't as important as punters think it is, very few jockeys are horseman, they use the whip to excess for the same reason punters like to see their horse hard ridden....out of habit........when they back a loser they blame the unknown...........my horse wasn't hit as many times as the other horse!

There was a horse that won at Caulfield where the caller saw the jockey lose the whip.......it was well back and when the whip was dropped he assumed Rich Charm couldn't win.....the whip made Zero difference, the horse won anyway............

The whip is an over rated tool, especially with jockeys now using spurs a lot more....it is all about perception not reality....

P.S. when I said the whip rule was  "silly" I meant it is silly bringing in a rule supposedly for the horses benefit and not just allowing spurs to be used, it encourages spurs to be used?

The do gooders(and I use that term advisedly) are either uninformed, stupid or don't really care about animals.....I think it is probably the latter....I would love spurs to be totally banned as they should be, they are cruel to the nth degree.......I have owned Horses in the past and when a Jockey came out with spurs on I made them go back and take them off....not on my horse they don't!

I do not believe a padded whip is cruel even when over used as it often is...........a 50kg jockey with no understanding of horsemanship(which applies to 99% of jockeys) cannot force a 500kg horse to do something it doesn't want to do.....Brute force doesn't work with Children or Animals............
The whip is a tool that can be used to show (encourage) the horse to do what you want.....not to force it to do it....the horse wants to please....it doesn't know how important it is to get to the winning post first without being encouraged..........
there is no rule that applies to all horses, some try as hard as they can without any whip or spurs being needed....others are lazy and need some extra encouragement to find the line..........both of these types would be very small percentages at either end of the spectrum

Then there are some jockeys that horses just travel for and some Jockeys that some horses won't run for....no matter how much force is applied

You will often see when a jockey falls off and the horses continues on and completes the race it more often than not "wins" the race easy.....they are racehorses.....that is what they do....Run as fast as possible

The bottom line it is about understanding the horse.........that is what made Bart such a great trainer...........learning about the psychology of the horse....how it thinks....what it needs to make it want to do it's best.........a happy horse makes the best racehorse

Just an opinion....but I am right
