While may have a laugh at owners not accepting the HK offer at least the thing is racing and not off elsewhere or to the breeding barn (not that's an option for K).

Australian racing probably needs more talented geldings
Like someone said before that did reek of a barrier trial.

It will be winning bigger and better races in the future, and no chance I’d be jumping off backing it after that last run where it had no favours

It probably didn’t even affect its run tbh

It just got way too far back and at EF it’s tough to win chasing 8 lengths no matter how good you are, looking at the replay it was actually a massive run from it, especially down the straight

Was the reason I couldn’t believe someone would plonk 11k on it, cos it’s an absolute shite venue to punt at
What do they start with on Get On? Do they just keep betting no matter what? What's the highest they've got to before it has lost?

500 pot (100 each to start with) I think

Mate of mine who has watched it religiously in the past said with Gator they got it too 30k-40k or something previously, but I may be wrong?

No idea if they lost it, or cashed out someone in here would know

not going to let you go with this. You tipped in the tout a couple of starts ago!!
Yup. Thought it would appreciate the drop in class but needs even easier!! Fact remains 12 starts ago I declared it would never win another race and have been proven correct despite it starting single figures every time and fave 5 times!

nah geldings are crabs and just weaken the breed. HK is full of them and their racing is garbage

And people aren’t going to be going out of their way (if they could) to see a Frank Packer Plate winner

The problem is any talented colt rarely makes it past 3

If we want genuine WFA horses will only come via mares and geldings, which on reflection is prob what has been the case here for the last 30 years when you consider our best horses

Just tail Hutch’s Honkers tips what can go wrong?

Expert tipster over there all of a sudden apparently
I think he spent a few years there so has some knowledge of the jurisdiction. Not sure if that translates to being a good tipster though.

When you think of it HK with its shallow depth, racing on only 2 tracks with limited number of jocks and basically going around and around against one another, should make it one of the more predictable racing venues for punters.

Should....

Yeah I saw he did spend some time there, but whenever I’ve seen his tips they have been garbage

In his defense it’s a shocking punting jurisdiction.

Would be Un-Australian to throw shit at someone having a go.

I'd have taken the 3mil and run but good on the owners for giving him a go and hoping for the best. Good for Aus racing if he takes the steps required.

Anyone think that Byrne's ride on Vega 1 was a bit soft?

Was going ok - not sure he was fully riding it out and then Niccanova cut Vega1's running line out anyway - and it looked like he was happy to pull him up a bit

Have feeling Gollan is playing silly buggers .... yet it is still under 10s for the Straddie?

Wouldn't be surprised if it all of a suddenly grew a leg in 2 weeks time ...... with 52 kg

It's got 14 owners and while they'd all have different percentages it is not quite like winning tattslotto by selling it.

Is there a reason Kem has been kept to 6F this prep? To my eye it can't sprint sharply enough and is better placed at 1400
Was thinking this morning and came up with it's logical prep as Straddie was always the GF. They may even be concerned he's showing signs of further and sprint trips keeps speed in his legs for the eventual straddie.

Lol I'm looking at the tips on Punters and they're tipping $20+ pops in Sha Tin today, is it that much of a raffle?
Yes it’s bad

Only way you can play it there atm is just back Teetan, Schofield or Poon on a 10+ pop and you have a good chance of getting a couple across the card and ending up

Playing Magic Man or Purton will bankrupt you atm, there just under the odds on anything they jump on

Yeah that was last year or the year before when gator went huge. From memory, most of the money came from a Ken Keys horse at long odds.

Yeah he tipped that Al Passem at large odds and also had it in a multi with something else.

Won like $38k in one go.

If you religiously copied their bets you would be in front.

On SM-G925I using BigFooty.com mobile app
Remember he pulled Kenedna at 26s during the championships too last year

He had an unbelievable run at one point

Teetan and schofield usually good for a winner or two

Genuine WFA horses are generally already at stud - if you have a whole bunch of geldings and mares dominating at WFA it suggests you probably aren't seeing the cream of the crop.
