The way V’landys throws peoples money around, it’s a pity the “great” man hasn’t had the foresight to tip a little bit into the tracks. What an absolute joke.

It will be interesting to see what the powers-that-be decide.

"The options are moving Slipper Day to midweek, or transferring the five Group 1 races including the Golden Slipper to the Tancred Stakes meeting next Saturday.

Another possibility is pushing Sydney’s entire autumn carnival back a week and having the Golden Sipper meeting next Saturday."

They'll race, track is remarkably good.

What will call it off will be the jockeys and visibility or lack there of if it starts throwing it down.

 :shy:

To be fair word I'd got was they were really happy where the track was at.

Mind you I went to bed around 1am and it was throwing it down and didn't let up - still hasn't.

  :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

I'll forgive your comment if you're not in Sydney, otherwise there's only two logical reasons for a comment like that - clear chip on your shoulder with and axe to grind or you need to give up what you're smoking.

Channel 7 has just said that - not that they're any credible racing news source  :/

The Re-scheduling of the whole Autumn Carnival by 7 days is about the best resolution I would think.
The rain not going anywhere quickly but someone has to make a decision.

Climate-change consequences:  sleeve-card saves the day


.................... one would like to think that RNSW made provision for a wash-out by programming a spare meeting at the end of the carnival  ........... we will see next year if the sense of this is repeated.

Foresight is more useful than hindsight ............. alas RNSW waited until Saturday morning to respond to the prospect of a wash-out which was as-certain-as-can-be by the middle of last week.

The delay in deferring the meeting was costly ........ not least for some one million + punters ........... reassured by administrators that the meeting was 'on' ............ doing the form was a waste of time.

Even pensioners value their time at some 20 cents per minute .......... $24+ bucks for even  two-hours doing the form  .............. $24 million bucks + for punters nationally.

............... additionally there is the waste of time, and money, for participants being ready to run ..............

In short, the known probabilities of wet tracks around Easter in Sydney make it sensible to both have a spare meeting to give up and to make the decision to defer as soon as the probabilities of a wash out are clear as day.

If anyone whatsoever was in any doubt as to why this bloke is no longer employed in the industry, sit back and take note  :lol:

On a more interesting note, we might see some better fields as a result of the postponement. If the Ranvet attracts Collete and Sir Dragonet, it could be even better while George Ryder might get a couple from the All Star Mile. The Guineas could be the most interesting race if the NZ horses get here along with a couple from Melbourne.

Hope the races are not postponed again as the rain situation has not greatly changed today but should lighten up after Wednesday if forecasts are right.

Ha ha.

Seriously it is one of the best days of Racing in any year.

Not sure what the surface will be like as it will have a two week break so won’t be chopped as much but will be happy.

My mate jumped on Jungle Edge at 16s and was happy with the rain till the meeting got called off. He is still crying.

Selective vision using the rose coloured glasses


         ................. racing administrators only foresee things they like ............ only predict better  ..

Rosehill could be out of heavy for Slipper............

................................ the Rosehill Gardens surface could be in the soft range for the country’s biggest day of group 1 racing despite the state’s monumental rain event.............. predicts improved weather from tomorrow will give Saturday’s track a chance to be upgraded from the heavy range.

.............. cop this for selective hindsight..............[Racing NSW and the ATC were forced to delay the Slipper meeting a week after torrential rain in Sydney for days leading up to the program. In the eight days leading up to Monday, Rosehill had been drenched with more than 300mm of rain.]

.................. despite the prospect of more heavy rain today,.............quietly confident of the surface improving enough that the country’s biggest stallion-making race would not be run on a bottomless track.

‘‘Whether we get out of the heavy [range] or not will just depend on how things work, but I’m suspecting we will be somewhere between an eight and a [soft] seven,’’ ..............‘‘Anything better will depend on how much sun and breeze we get.

Richie Rich applauds RNSW

100% THE RIGHT CALL

 .............close to 100 percent approval............. the decision to move the Sydney autumn carnival back a week ................ It was a case of putting the horse first which is really what racing should be all about. Congratulations to Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club........... In pre .....  days things were not done as quickly and, often, not as sensibly.


Our racing writers in the mainstream media can hardly be always assessed as objective .........on the contrary ......  all too often racing writers are inlcined to toe an administrator-and-media-driven party line .......to present a sows ear as a silk purse.

............. and the 'silk-purse' is what seems to dictate the inclination of racing administrators and racing writers ........... not facing facts until they have no choice on race morning .........

It was reliably clear last Wednesday that the Slipper meeting would not proceed ............ administrators, on Friday afternoon, were still saying ......... looks OK to go?

It was not.

On the Wednesday, the BOM was saying very-heavy rain would fall over Friday night and Saturday .........disregarding that professional advice was inexcusable ............. unless the silk-purse was blinding foresight.

So the dismissed administrator can’t answer the question

His prospective employers have noted the fools inability to provide direction. An ignoramus exposed

Bloody Pete is a conundrum wrapped in a riddle, inside and enigma....covered in confusion :yes:
He follows more scribes than you can poke a stick at, which makes him a follower i.e. Big Richie etc.......then comes here and tries to make out he is a leader and wants to lead us out of the dark........No thanks Pete...I have a torch, but thanks all the same!

....................from last night

Weaster Wet ......... unable to cop the tip

..... as I write ........ a consensus is being negotiated on 2KSKY by a couple of racing writers.

Their plan is to move the whole Sydney autumn carnival 'a week forward' to allow more runners from Melbourne into the big races at Randwick.

.......commonsense demands that RNSW sticks to the current timetable which insures against a 'rained out meeting' by holding one up-the-sleeve.
