Def too many Gp1s in Aus and ideally some would be removed and others rescheduled. That said I think the WA ones get a mulligan this yr only
Do you really think the addition of say high quality B graders (choosing random ones here) Riodini and Swats That does anything for the validity of the race? It's not as if G1 winners Trekking and best of Days the likes have come here and rolled in with ease. The winners of 2 of 3 big ones are probably better than most other years so it's not just a covid problem either.
I would happily see the G1 status taken away under a broad restructure but it has very little to do with lack of interstate horses
Previous winners from east Voodoo Lad, Viddora, Good Project, Takedown were not G1 horses before during or after their G1 wins in WA so even when the eastern horses win it does nothing for the race quality. Only exceptions for last 5 years are probably Stratum Star (just) + Hey Doc
