You really are a complete dill; aren't you ? Who would put such condescending crap into print in this day and age.

Who would put "such crap" in the current age?

Someone who still retains a sense of humour and who isn't "woke" about such things.

And someone who isn't hung up about women's sexuality and can still compliment a woman on how beautiful they are without fearing the woke crowd who will be coming down on them like a bunch of mindless parrots.

That's who.

Hmmmm,

If they still cut the Mustard and are sound they should be allowed to race.

If anything it is the cessation of being active that sends animals to an early grave.

Isn't the esteemed Minister a family member of that wonderful Bellino family. Naturally I concur with everything she has to say.

Qld Gallops / EAGLE FARM TRACK - NEARLY 12 MONTHS AFTER THE HYPE

QUEENSLAND racing officials are pinning their hopes on the beleaguered Eagle Farm surface following the same profile as the Townsville track, which took “five years to fully mature”, a parliamentary estimates inquiry has heard.

Fronting questions from the Opposition, Queensland Racing Minister Grace Grace said she is “aware” of recent discussions over the firmness of the sand-based Eagle Firm surface but added she received “nothing but positive feedback” throughout the winter carnival from trainers, jockeys and owners.

“My understanding is the track for most of that (winter carnival) time … was graded as a Good 4 for most of the races at Eagle Farm,” she said, while also adding she had walked the track before the winter carnival.

“However I am aware of recent discussions regarding the track surface and management moving forward.

“I know Townsville went through a similar situation as this and after the third year their track came very good.”

It comes as it was revealed $13.7m had been spent on the surface across two rebuilds which span across seven years.

Racing originally stopped at Eagle Farm in August 2014 for a renovation before returning to racing in June 2016. After botching the original rebuild, the track was again ripped up in May 2017 and returned to racing on the current surface in December 2018.

While there are growing calls to again rip the surface up and start again, Grace said the current Eagle Farm track was in better shape than its predecessors.

“I understand the performance of the track continues to create discussion within the industry, my understanding is the basis for improving are very good,” she said.

“The root structure is not like when we had to rip it up previously. There isn’t that thatching there that was there before which required a complete upheaval.

“We understand it is similar to Townsville and I have met with the Townsville people who said: ‘Minister, it does take a while longer’, we are nearly into that period of time post Stradbroke season where we are looking to see this grass firm up.”

Racing Queensland chief executive Brendan Parnell maintained the track is “safe” and that the “root system is the healthiest it has been”.

“Our Minister referred to the Townsville racetrack which is a very similar construction – a sand-based profile with the same couch grass – and that took five years to fully mature,” he said.

ENDS

Will  see if the Estimates Hearing is worth posting .

Randwick to carry load in lockdown

RAY THOMAS

RANDWICK will be Sydney’s only operational racecourse during the August Covid crackdown, with Rosehill, Canterbury and Warwick Farm closed for race meetings.

Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club needed to revise the August racing schedule as the three racetracks are in local government areas now designated lockdown zones.

This leaves only Randwick able to host race meetings in the metropolitan area for the next four weeks,

The first meetings of the 2021-22 season required venue changes, starting with Canterbury next Wednesday, which has been shifted to Randwick’s Kensington track.

The first Saturday race day of the new season, the Group 2 Missile Stakes meeting on August 7, has been moved from Rosehill to Randwick.

The scheduled Randwick meeting on August 14 has been moved to Kembla Grange.

This will give the Randwick course proper some respite before the first Group 1 of the new season, the Winx Stakes, at the track on August 21.

With Kembla Grange now the Sydney Saturday fixture on August 14, Goulburn will host the provincial meeting.

Newcastle will host the August 11 meeting instead of Kensington and the scheduled Canterbury August 18 meeting is now on Kensington.

Racing NSW chief steward Marc Van Gestel said the racing industry was doing what was necessary to continue through the Covid outbreak.

“Essentially we can’t race at Rosehill, Warwick Farm and Canterbury during August,’’ Van Gestel said.

“Fortunately there weren’t too many Saturday meetings set down for Rosehill next month so we are using Randwick and Kensington.

“Kembla Grange is in the greater Sydney region so we can utilise that racetrack.’’

Van Gestel said the Newcastle race day on August 11 would retain metropolitan status and prizemoney but Sydney jockeys could not ride as they were confined to the Greater Sydney area.
