    • Nor the "Non-binary". You say it is hardly an unusual occurence - when was the time prior?  It's only been done once in NZ that I can recall.
    • You talk about winning life changing amounts as in lotto, racing don't really have anything, it's not the seventies anymore, that $100 double just wont  go far anymore and quantity over quality, I think the extension of the race days in harness racing next year is a rather naive idea but in every sport we seem to think the more the merrier. Interestingly I hear the IPL Cricket is going into the finals stange, strangely while  many were disappointed it wasn't on Sky as such we have all survived without it, no different to racing, Entain can have 60 meetings every day but most of it one don't bother with anyway. Anyway I will go check Wingatui nominations, starting to get into winter in earnest now.
    • Hardly an unusual occurrence these days. I note they didn't mention all the races were won by the boys at Flemington the same day. 
    • What Ipswich Races Where Ipswich Turf Club – 219 Brisbane Rd, Bundamba QLD 4304 When Wednesday, May 22, 2024 First Race 11:59am AEST Visit Dabble The Ipswich Turf Club will host a very competitive nine-race card this Wednesday afternoon. The track was rated as a Soft 5 at the time of acceptances; however, there is no rain forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, so it is expected that the surface will improve into the Good range. The rail will be in the +6m position for the entire circuit, with racing scheduled to kick off at 11:59am AEST. Best Bet at Ipswich: Taltarni Fields The Kelly Schweida-trained Taltarni Fields broke his maiden at the fourth time of asking last start, leading every step of the way to record a dominant 2.8-length victory at this track and trip. Although this son of Deep Field will race out of maiden grade for the first time, he has shown enough ability to suggest he can handle the class rise. From barrier nine, Cejay Graham will push forward to take up the lead, and if Taltarni Fields isn’t pestered mid-race, he can win again. Best Bet Race 7 – #3 Taltarni Fields (9) 3yo Gelding | T: Kelly Schweida | J: Cejay Graham (a1.5) (58.5kg) Bet with Neds Next Best at Ipswich: Barassi Tony Gollan and James Orman will combine with Barassi as he entire rises to 1100m second-up after struggling to run out a strong 1000m fresh at Eagle Farm on April 20. Since that run, the lightly raced son of I Am Invincible has been to the trials to record a 4.8-length victory. If Orman can push forward and settle outside the leader, Barassi will give a good kick at the top of the home straight and run away with the victory. Next Best Race 4 – #6 Barassi (9) 5yo Horse | T: Tony Gollan | J: James Orman (56.5kg) Bet with Dabble Best Value at Ipswich: Almairac After recording back-to-back wins in Victoria, Almairac from the Cliff Brown yard will have his first start in Queensland fresh off a two-month break. This son of Golden Horn was last seen claiming a narrow victory over Kentucky Nick at Yarra Glen, where he carried 59kg in his third career start. With only 54kg on his back and Craig Williams taking the reins, Almairac will get the run of the race from barrier two, and with even luck, he will prove hard to beat. Best Value Race 5 – #4 Almairac (2) 4yo Gelding | T: Cliff Brown | J: Craig Williams (54kg) Bet with Picklebet Wednesday quaddie tips for Ipswich races Ipswich quadrella selections Wednesday, May 22, 2024 5-6-7-8 3-7-14 1-2-3-7-9-13 4-5-9-13 | Copy this bet straight to your betslip Horse racing tips View the full article
    • I thought that since the "flash" racing is virtually all done for the season it might be worth considering which of the stakes type innovations proved successful, and which ones weren't quite so successful. I must say, I thought the SI $350,000 gimmick race was probably the best of the lot. It attracted a really good field, turned into a very competitive race and provided a worthy reward for southern trained horses. If you were to offer me $350,000 to name one horse who raced in the other 3 gimmick races in the north I wouldn't be able to name a single horse, let alone the winners of any of the races. As to the biggest waste of money, and there were several contenders, I would suggest the $650,000 in bonuses for horses who placed in 3 or 4 nominated races. Legarto won the bulk of it running 2nd in the last event. I am really not sure what it achieved at all. Legarto proved uncompetitive in its two Aussie starts during the season so was probably always going to target those NZ races regardless of bonuses. Campionessa and Desert Lightning decided to head off to Aussie anyhow, despite earning enough points early on to be contenders. The last two races only attracted fields of 10 and 11, so hardly capacity considering the total stakes on offer. It will be interesting to see if NZTR analyse the success or otherwise of all the initiatives, and decide to abandon or revamp any that didn't work so well. Although I think they are just rolling them all over to next season as is. Obviously they consider everything they did was 100% successful. Certainly an impressive result for any business.
