As Max Presnell points out in today's Herald no-one would be that surprised that Exoteric won the race it was the performance of High Bridge that is a major concern.
Max describes the horse as looking like he was pulling an anchor while it looked to me that he had been 'nobbled'....do they still nobble horses these days?
A week after spending millions of dollars to entice 'a new breed of punters' to the the track, on the first day they are confronted with some classic Wallerism.....bit of tough love there boys!
Interesting the word Wallerism has now been included in the Oxford Dictionary ......the synonyms and antonyms are amusing
The disturbing part is with the two country horses only running around for appearance money and with High Bridge rendered ineffective it became a six horse race.
jfc's Kelly Criterion comes to mind.
