Where do you place the Goondiwindi Grey Brian?

/color]

Very highly.

Both horses are in the Australian Hall fo Fame; Bernborough was one of the original five inductees together with Carbine, Phar Lap, Tulloch and Kingston Town. The creme de la creme.

Racing Talk / Melbourne Cup 2021

Without Incentivise, it will be one of the most open MC in history. A few more horses have fallen out of the Cup including Realm of Flowers.

Waller will have a few horses but the most interesting will be Very Elegant if he chooses to run her in it.

Back at the 'Tin for some Sunday racing.

Not that keen on the early part of the card, race 3 & 4 have some promising types but I just couldn't narrow them down  :shy:

Race 6: a Grp 2 over 1200m which sees the unbeaten Courier Wonder return against the big fella Naboo Attack. I'm sticking with #12 Naboo Attack, hard to ignore the 51.5kg on his back, as always will just need a touch of luck being drawn inside but he gets clear air, watch out, currently $3.4.  #6 Courier Wonder the obvious danger and #1 Sky Field at $11 could be one for the SRM selection.

Race 7: many of these are either first up or finished behind #6 C P Brave last time, he does go up 4kg but it was an authoritative win, rise in distance won't hurt & $2.7 looks acceptable so he's on top. The rise in distance will suit #3 Super Football too, should improve 2nd up and currently $13

Race 8: another grp 2 this time over the 1600m #7 Sky Darci at $3.5 on top. SD went to the line last time out marking time for the final 100m running up behind the surprise winner yet couldn't come off heels as was boxed in by the eventual runner up in #10 Tourbillion Diamond who goes in as the danger at $5.

Race 9: #2 My Sugar stalked the speed last time before shooting away for a nice win, drawn to repeat again today. #9 Master Hero the saver.

Race 10: The unbeaten #2 Fantastic Treasure returns, trialed well up the straight going with the smart Wellington. Thought we'd get better but $2.2 is acceptable. If there's a danger is the #12 Fantastic Way although it's up in class.

Just on the 2000 m Fillies race.
I anchored just about all my multis with Stalking...win and place.....loved the wet track breeding and all of that.

A bit before the race I went to have another look to see just how strong she really was over the 1600 m in the Ethereal through the line, at her last start.
My eyes kept being drawn to the finish of the filly in the light blue....Daisies....oh boy....a bit late....a few peanuts e\w

Can't watch enough videos can you!

......................acceptable quaddie result


Two races in Melbourne illustrate the problem of inflated fields with no quality control

Race 4 over 2000 for 3yro fillies  became a farce when, as usual, the 150/1 shot went to the front and disrupted the field, before compounding and running last..............  Daisies who had gone to the front before the trouble won unexpectedly.


Absolute rubbish. Daisies was not an unexpected win at all and the roughie you tal’ about caused no problems for anything

Race 8 also became unfair as, in an inflated field of 16, the longshots went forward before failing, and the horses there to win had nowhere to go.

Sorry, you’re  stupid or a bald face liar.

R8 was a 12 horse field and no runners were interfered with by the leaders or any other horse

https://www.racing.com/form/2021-10-16/caulfield/race/8/results#/results


In the event the most-punter set had 3 of the 4 in both quadrellas but got robbed by the administrators chasing a buck to the delight of the corporates and syndicates.

In short, provided the race can be and is fairly run --- any outcome is acceptable.

The problem in Melbourne is RVL accepting all comers.

With no quality control on the composition of inflated fields the races are not fair. R4&R8 were unfair to all involved.

......................acceptable quaddie result

Considering yesterday...the Q outcomes in Sydney were very acceptable while those in Melbourme were not.

FFS,

They have changed the rules again since the 56kg limit and now there is no limitation. ( Greg Carpenter )

Incentivise may end up with 58kgs but my guess is 57.5

Jadeskye in the ownership as well.....oh boy.

The well known Qantas baggage handler Damien Flower.
Interesting to know who is paying the training fees.

Here is a piece from the SMH from 2019

But within two years Mr Flower’s fortunes had improved remarkably. In March 2014 he repaid the $100,000 plus interest that he owed his father and a handful of other creditors and his bankruptcy was annulled.

In August that same year he paid almost $1.3 million for a house at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. The purchase was made through his company, Jadeskye Enterprises, which he named after his daughters. In February 2015, Jadeskye paid $4.5 million for a rural property in Clarendon, not far from the Hawkesbury racetrack. Since then Mr Flower, 47, spared no expense on turning the property into Platinum Park, his thoroughbred stables and training facilities.

But this week Mr Flower’s world came crashing down when he and his racing partner John Junior Mafiti, a Qantas baggage handler, were arrested over their alleged involvement in importing cocaine from South Africa.

For six months, police had watched as Mr Flower, Mr Mafiti and Ashoor Youhana, an Iraqi-born smash repairer from the city's south-west, allegedly imported the drugs.

On Friday the NSW Crime Commission slapped freezing orders over Mr Flower’s assets which include Platinum Park and a string of his real estate investments in Sydney and the Gold Coast.

"The NSW Crime Commission did not seek an order to seize any race horses, however the interests Mr Flower has in any race horse will be captured by the restraining order," read a statement issued by Commissioner Peter Cotter on Friday.

This includes Snitzel which Mr Flower part owns with broadcaster Alan Jones and prominent breeder John Messara, the former chairman of Racing NSW, the regulatory body for the thoroughbred industry.
