The Quaddie paid $14,000 but I missed the first leg. Adelong was disappointing but then so was the poor track condition at Randwick yesterday. No rain all week and no improvement at all on the track from Wednesday through to Saturday. Something is seriously wrong there.
Moonee Valley was a heavy 8 and deteriorated to the point where racing was abandoned but how long since we saw a Victorian Metro meeting cancelled?? How long since we saw a Heavy track at Moonee Valley? It’s interesting.
To me its seemed like a tough month, it’s the worst I can remember for our hot rated selections but then the number of selections is quite small. I think we are getting juts 18% winners and worse still the winners prices have been small. I back these plus Best Bets if any and Premium and Bolters. 38 winners from118 is 32% including maidens and class 1’s. minus 24% on turnover. Last month was 32% WINNERS AND A LEVEL STAKES PROFIT OF 6%.
Of course the new season often takes us by surprise and this year we have some serious bad weather too.
We have a small interest in the half million dollar mare Tarabai, which just dropped a foal by Brazen Beau. That’s another thing that happens in Spring. Have a good time today, I will relax until the Knights game where we will see if they have really become finals contenders or not.
