The Box Seat 9 October

Recommended Posts

What a bloody boring love fest. 

He may not be the most popular of presenters, but at least when M Guerin is on, he is not afraid to voice his opinion and calls it exactly as he sees it. 

Somehow I managed to stay awake to see the piece on M Jones and B Hill joining forces in the training ranks, commencing 1 November. Two professional, successful and well respected horsemen combining, it will be exciting to see what eventuates from that. 

And lastly the highlight of the show, Addington's CEO Brian Thompson, jesus how good is his head of hair? Seriously. Must have been a former male model.

I didn't mention the ATC Racing Manager's head of hair, as I wasn't sure if it was the latest hairstyle coming outta Milan or roadkill.

The joining of training with Mark Jones and Brendan Hill is going to be very interesting.

Does Regan Todd remain in the mix with Mark Jones?

Maybe it means that Mark is going to be spending most of his time in Oz!

Exciting news. Benny seems to be able to bring home some high paying odds which is fantastic. Last week Naholo at $15 & $4. Tonight he has Fine By Me at $26 & $3.30 live chance maybe?

ATC Racing Manager's

He spoke poorly on the show probably due to nerves but got a little better at the end. Greg and Matt were finishing his sentences for him though. 

He loved the mile races at Alexandra and said it brought punters back to betting. Brodie has another adversary!

The mile racing at Alexandra Park is a borefest and if punters are investing on them, they clearly don’t follow racing closely.

Of course a marketing manager is going to talk it up as he is the market8ng manager.

He is hardly going to say that they have stuffed up!

Auckland Trotting is totally stuffed and it is going to take a helluva lot more than programming boring  mile races to get them out of the shite!!!

If people are going to Alexandra Park it is not to watch the racing, it will be the socialising.

Do agree, punters are over the AllStar BS, but there is some good stuff on there but it is only after the AllStar show.

Not sure who has decided that it should be all about the AllStars, are they sponsoring the show???

There was. Matt Cross was good but in a standard fare kind of way.

They talked about the awards night but no mention of Blair Orange's speech on the show (or even on the awards show that was on trackside) so it just confirms the Box Seat is an in house show with no real independent thought.

Don't rock the boat baby...don't tip the boat over....

If it was the opening entertainment at the Fast 10 it would draw tens of thousands and the Brodster could wear his weekend clothes on a Friday....

You would think he would be able to get a bet on at his own bar.
