Racing Talk / Down Goes Another Of Lloyd's Trainers
« Last post by Dave on 13 minutes ago »
Really the argument that LLoyd owns everything so is therefore is entitled to make all the decisions has more holes than a sieve......

He is obviously the pseudo trainer.....but he doesn't hold a licence and if one of his horses gets caught with a drug in it's system....it won't go on his record any more than the trouble at Godolphin went on the Sheiks record,

LLoyd's trainer would get a holiday and in would step another lackey.....making Lloyd above the law....he has the money, he is entitled to do everything exactly as he is.....so long as he has a trainers licence.....and the buck stops with him if anything goes wrong
no doubt Lloyd is as honest as anyone but it doesn't look right letting one person do what others can't

Racing Talk / NSW and Vic TAB Related Issues and Discussion !!
« Last post by Dave on 24 minutes ago »
Philby  maybe you can help with an explanation of the TAB's thinking?
 I had a bet in the last at Caulfield tomorrow (21/02/18) the TAB like all corporates were betting in the vicinity of 160% or more, which I understood as there was more than 40% of the market in emergencies...........

Now there were 2 scratchings both around double figures and the deductions were 9 cents and 11 cents, sounds fair right?? about 20% but they allowed in 2 emergencies that were closer to 30% of the Market............now if the emergencies didn't get a run there would be no deductions for them............the TAB had already punished the prices assuming the Emergencies wouldn't get a run by betting 160% in the first place
now if a horse that is a $5 chance is scratched a 20% deduction would be fair......so wouldn't it therefore follow that if a horse that is not in the race is let in and it is $5 there should be a 20% increase in the price? that would be fair! a silly analogy but it makes my point

I had a bet on a different horse in the same race with Sportsbet.....and guess what?? Their deductions were 0 cents and 0 cents........just like any fair minded organisation would see it.............Hooray for SPORTSBET!! Hip, Hip Hooray....a Fair Bookmaker!
I called the TAB and all I get is that they claim ignorance, they didn't make the decision and I can't talk to anyone who did, I just want to get an explanation of how they came to their conclusion based on what is fair??............

First they try to explain the basics like I am an uneducated idiot who doesn't understand that when there are deductions they have to give the money back.........well the fav was an emergency and they would have had to give that money back too if it hadn't got a run.....but they would not have taken a deduction if it was scratched

AND THEY WERE BETTING 160% TO MAKE ALLOWANCE FOR THE EMERGENCIES NOT GETTING A RUN.......THAT DEDUSTION WAS ALREADY BUILT IN TO THE PRICES!

Sorry for shouting, I am angry but it isn't you I am angry with, it isn't even the TAB REALLY.......It is ME......this has happened before and I cancelled my account.....then like an idiot I reopened it..........fool me once shame on you......but you fooled me twice and that is a SHAME on ME...........but one thing you can take to the Bank.....you won't fool me a 3rd time, the account will be closed as soon as weight is declared after the last a Caulfield, win/lose or draw!.....unless someone can give me a plausible explanation of why what they have done is fair?
Good luck with that

You couldn't. The aging "corporate tycoon " is not big on freedom of speech.

Not a bad listen this morning with Robert Hickmott.

Doesn't appear to be anyone's puppet but left no doubt about who was boss.

His biggest regret at Mt Macedon was the scratching of Amralah from 2015 Mel cup

Racing Talk / So Si Bon pays a heavy price
« Last post by ianb on 5 hours ago »
I see where So Si Bon barrier trialed at Cranbourne yesterday. He finished 4th out of 8.

The trial must have been okay as  he is now one of the 33 horses who are left in the  Newmarket after first acceptances today.
