Fact is I am travelling a lot of back roads in Tassie and there are lots of blackspots and slow internet. It did not stop me backing our Hotshot yesterday and the $6 and $6.5 I took early yesterday a.m. was a lot better than the $3.60 available by racetime. A good win and paid for some of our expenses.
I still find it hard to believe that when we did our Australian Winform Racing Seminars tour some years ago, that Tasmania had by far the fewest number of attendees and the Launceston one was easily the worst attended. Yet some of our most ardent punters are living here in the North and Northwest.
And Rosebery..See You have not been left out. I recall twenty years ago you could buy a three bedroom house in Rosebery for $20,000, closer to $200,000 these days, and even in the last two years , prices across Tassie have moved up. You can’t lose with property if you hold it for long enough.
The stockmarket goes up and down like a yo yo and even this week I have seen mt portfolio swing by as much as 20% just on the movemnet of two or three financialstocks.. Those stocks are still as financial and profitable on Thursday as they were on Monday yet the price variation , based entirely on rumours and electronic nonsense, had to be seen to be believed. Take Afterpay. A drop of 20% was caused by the sale of 1 single share at that ridiculous price but the market reacted.
It reminds of the day I was at Port Macquarie and there were four bookmakers. Three had my selection at odds on, around $1.90. I approached the fourth bookmaker and took $100 at even money. He then turned his price down to $1.50 and WITHOUT taking a single bet the other three turned their prices down to $1.50 too. Action and reaction. The runner bolted in by the way but that’s not the point.
I am in transit most of today so once I reach the office this evening, that;s when I expect to fill all the orders placed while I was away. Good luck, plenty of day AND night meetings to keep you going.
I’m glad for the many Members who watch this space. MOst of the callers Ive had this week used the office number but when it went to message I got a first name, or a name and no phone number and so on. Makes it hard to call back. And yes, it can be hard to hear even though I know most of my clients by their voice but I do have many many Members whose name is John, Trevor , Andy and so on.. HAVE A GREATDAY! BlueDiamond tomorrow and I don’t have a standout like most years.
