Getting a lot of attention as voting opens so probably deserves its own thread.

Not sure if mod can go through and copy over posts from the Jan Daily thread or not.

Current top 10 in voting (10/2):

Urban Ruler (prev 1) - flogged in Brisbane yesterday
The Autumn Sun (2) - not running
Grunt (6) - last seen beaten out of sight in Turnbull
Moss N Dale (5) - beaten out of sight in Orr
Foundry (9) - last 3 starts over a mile and a half (and that was 15 months ago!)
Man Of His Word (4) - Last win Brisbane Hcp in 2016
Mr Money Bags (3) - under the whip 600m out last time out
Material Man (new) - decent in Orr - the hero we need
Balf's Choice (new) - Struggling to win BM90s in Adelaide
Amphirtire (7) - Last seen beaten 1000 lengths in the Oaks

Pretty poorly done imo, even ignoring the early results. I put a vote in, which was a pretty tedious process in itself, then realised I only had one vote. Went trawling through the info page and it was pretty hard to find anything about vote limits etc. Luckily the horse who got my vote was TAS.

You can sort the field by rating on the profiles page.

Biggest possible troll field someone could compile would also be pretty funny :D


tough one. a lot would be offensive to just limited horses. but we will see

edit below.

tried to avoid horses who are just a tier below and have not in one way or another been talked up.

but when we reflect back on the story of Tom, all his hardship cannot be for naught, if this were a movie we would currently being in the training montage from a downtrodden young man about to be re-born.

Have faith in the volume of people to vote. I won’t lie the 1 vote per person concerns me a little but it should still be somewhat of an ok field with a couple oddities.
But how many people are going to vote?Is racing popular enough to get a million votes? How many votes are going to get something in? I can see both Hellova Street and Mystic Journey getting in given the Tassie Vote. I am not as confident as you re good horses.
