About the nicest thing you could say about Eagle Farm and that is "it's terrible".....and it looks terrible.
There is one thing consistent thing about a botch.....no amount of spin or remedial work can ever repair a botch.
I'm really surprised that anyone want any of their horses racing on it .....let alone the very good ones.
A week after taking down two of Australia's top sprinters, Gytrash and Savatiano, this week it takes out another headliner in Media Award.
12 months ago Kinane was a "headliner"
I was more than interested this week reading about Kinane.
The original trainer, C Waller told his current trainer M Kent to have the horse checked out for bone-bruising.
C Waller would know because he raced Kinane on that piece of concrete 12 months ago.
While Mick Kent might want to refer to Kinane's current condition as "Caulfield-itis".
Let's not kid ourselves about bone bruising......it's not "Eagle Farm-itis" or "Flemington-itis"......bone bruising is in fact micro-fractures.
There have been some great winter gallopers in the past ploughing through the mud....just history now!
