Not sure what the conditions are of the "Drought Breaker Maiden" Race 2 but there are some horses in there that have been maidens for a loooong time.

Chief among them is #9 Costano Mille an 8yo mare who is having her 110th start today. 13 placings and of course zero wins.

Amazingly it is in the market at $14.

Interesting race.

It is Swan Hill Cup day today.

Race 8 - 4:00PM bet365 Swan Hill Cup (1600 METRES)

Of $112,500.1st $61,875, 2nd $20,250, 3rd $10,125, 4th $5,625, 5th $3,375, 6th $2,250, 7th $2,250, 8th $2,250, 9th $2,250, 10th $2,250
Prize money contribution totalling 3% will be directed to jockey and equine welfare prior to distribution
Handicap, Minimum Weight 56kg, Apprentices cannot claim.


I cannot post the field because Racing Australia have this annoying habit of taking the form down as soon as the races start i.e. you cannot use Racing Australia for form during race day. What is the point of having the web site  :mad:

The two favourites are #1 Achenar Star and #5 Heptagon who cover most of the market ($2.90 and $2.10 resp.) and it is pretty to hard to argue with the bookies choice going on their city form.

Looking for something rough for exotics I thought #8 Beauna Veloz 3rd run back might be up to this.

#12 Skilled Assassin will be fitter and is 4:2-1 at the track and distance.

#2 Dr Drill selected but too short for me.

Will have a couple of dollars each way on #17 Naivasha in the hope that she can capture her best form of about a year ago under the new stable.

The lead bag must have dropped between the handover from jockey to whoever saddled the horse up...very strange that it went unnoticed. :whistle:

A couple of the Corporates did the right thing by punters and refunded their bets after the winner weighed in light 1kg it won by lengths the stewards had no option apparently but to DQ it.

Giddy Up :beer:

They have moved today's Hanging Rock Cup to Kyneton - hopefully for this year only.  A friend who lives near there said that should mean no drunks wandering the streets of Woodend tonight.

Cheers

I notice today that Bryce Stanaway has a number of runners in at Ararat including the 9 year old mare Constano Mille having her 124th start attempting to crack it's maiden  :shy: :o

I know he seems to have a lot of horses none of which seem much good (Crafty Cruiser the outlier) and there's always a bit of a smirk of derision when his name is mentioned but does anyone know more of the story? Outside of complaining about the sandwiches  :/

Is there money behind him, can he just not train? Or are they just all slow? Does he do it for the love of it?

Many of us have paid the bills to have one trained so we've all got a rough idea of what it costs so I'm stumped as to how the operation would pay for itself  :shrug:

I'm prepared to defend Bryce, Gintara.

Take a look at the condition of his two(correction 4) horses at Ararat.....tell me what you see.
Right race, right conditions.....I'll back his horses.

Poor old Bryce hasnít got much going on in his world, so why not cash in on an industry that is prepared to pay down the line for ineptitude. Why wouldnt you truck your fast ones across the state and suck on racingís teat along the way?. Stable flags bearers like Constant Mille & Ventura Highway have 237 starts between them for a paltry 3wins but have amassed earnings of $255,000.

Bryce is an easy target but is the wrong one.
He's displayed his character plenty of times on Racing.com.

Go and tell someone stuck in a 3 hr commute everyday or someone who has to say "yes sir" to a person they don't respect about Bryce's lifestyle.
Bryce could be living his dream on his farm with his horses at Torquay.....well and truly paid for by Elwood and others.

His ex-Godolphin, ex-Gold Coast, long priced placegetter earned him a couple of grand yesterday.
Would have cost a lot of money to bring that son of Medaglia d'Oro into the world.
Wouldn't like his prospects if Bryce hadn't come along.

Bryce proved with Crafty Cruiser that he is capable of doing something that seems to be beyond the "top" trainers......keeping a horse up.
Crafty Cruiser sat on a rating mid to high 80's for 4 years or so...slowly father time caught up with him.
That's the way it should be!

Maybe Lloyd Williams could have got some advice from Bryce.....what a sad tale it was for most of his expensive imports :tears:

My point was I didn't really understand how it all worked.

Of the 15 horses listed, most are in his name solely or with only 1 or 2 others. The one with the most owners is old Crafty Cruiser who also earnt the most $$$

15 horses that are mainly yours wouldn't be a cheap exercise and it's not like the prizemoney is flowing in  :shrug:

I think "how it all works?" would be Bryce's business.
Probably struggling a bit now and hoping for another 'good one'.
He has to comply with all of the welfare rules as any other licensed person.
I never seen an issue with the way his horses are presented.

Bryce trains his horses on his farm.....unorthodox guy with unorthodox methods.
Like a lot of NZ racing folk he would have grown up watching racehorses being trained on farms.....a la Kiwi.
Deserves credit for keeping his horse going and certainly wouldn't be using Lasix for "longevity and whatever other benefits it has for horses according to C Waller.

Bryce's daughter has a twitter page ......plenty of pics of his horses at the farm.
Looks a nice place for a thoroughbred ......may even be a bit of a clue to your question there. :shrug:

I noticed this post from PP before.

Seems she was scratched last week due to lameness and looks to have now been retired to the oldies paddock after 124 starts   emthup
