With the Derby in Tasmania being run recently I'm trying to remember good racehorses that hail from there.

I can think of Alfa, Sydeston, Piping Lane, Bow Mistress (I assume) as well as Hall of Famer, Malua.

What else has been pretty good from the Apple Isle?
Granted, no one would rate the neurals as perfectly accurate. But how on Earth is BC rated as 3.30 tonight with Zedi Knight the 2.10 top pick?!!!

It seems mainly because BC has been allotted only 1 point for Current Form and for Time (ZK has 112 and 70). But something is really amiss to have almost the closest thing to a certainty rated so dismissively. R & S, what happened?
Could she win? It certainly looks to be a weak year.
It's official. Scully's off to the new GWS franchise. No real surprise there. Here's hoping Melbourne gets good compensation and that that distraction is now buried.

800 well spent

This is not as amazing as the Takeover Target story. But in the breeding section.........

Late Night Flight - The $800 Star

Tuesday, 8 September 2009: When Suzanne Forrest went to a mere $800 to secure a yearling colt by Red Eye Special at the Magic Millions Perth Thoroughbred Sale in April 2007 few gave it a passing thought.

Just over two years later and that same horse is getting plenty of news - and all for the right reason.

The $800 investment has now turned into over $185,000 and that figure is set to continue rising at a rapid rate with connections set to embark on a stakes campaign.

Late Night Flight is the horse. He's one of the most in form metropolitan gallopers in the country.

On Saturday at Belmont in Perth, Late Night Flight made it four city wins from his past six outings when he scored a strong on speed win in the Be a Perth Racing Corporate Member Handicap (1600m) at Belmont.

The four-year-old is trained by young Aquanita Racing horseman Simon Miller and was ridden to victory by Chloe Chatfield.

Miller was impressed with the efforts of Late Night Flight's senior part owner Suzanne Forrest to have purchased the rising star for just $800.

"Unbelievable. They don't come around that often - but she nailed it."

A crack at black type is next on the agenda - with the listed Boulder Cup at Kalgoorlie set to be his next run.

"If he pulls up well, which he generally does, we'll take him there and give him a crack."

"The distance will suit. It favours front runners and it's good prizemoney."

"I'm looking forward to taking him there. He deserves a crack at them."

Miller said he went into Saturday's race with great confidence with the Late Night Flight have a perfect lead in.

"He put in a winning gallop on Tuesday morning."

"One of his greatest attributes is that he is so tough."

Late Night Flight, is one of 28 smart winners by the former classy Marooned galloper Red Eye Special.

A winner of six races, including three at two, Red Eye Special won a Group Three Roma Cup as well as two other stakes events during his racetrack career.

He is the sire of the stakes performed duo Dead Eye D*ck and Lady Cabernet. Late Night Flight looks destined to become his third at his next start.

Last Night Flight is one of two winners from his dam - the five time winner Polish Spirit.

A city winning daughter of Dauberval, Polish Spirit is from the two-year-old group winning and Group One Oaks placed Raise a Cup mare Kingston Spirit.

The family further back includes group one winners Shindig, Shinzig and Our Cache.

I notice that Vadim's tips are often knocked because there's so many of them. But what proof is there that 10 or 20 bets in a day are bad?

I understand that extra bets may mean less time doing the form for each race. But if a punter has the time (or resources, say a good computer program) to give thorough enough consideration for each bet it doesnt matter.

Yes, in 20 bets there's likely to be ones that aren't value. But there's no reason to still bet those ones and as above if one's form study is still good enough can it be possible to find 20 horses as overlays in a day?

If there are 20 good bets why discount all that work and watch 17 or 18 run without you? That's 17 profitable (long-term!) bets you lose the profit from.
Friday, 1 May 2009: Champion mare Sunline was euthanized early this morning after a lengthy struggle with Laminitis.

The amazing mare trained by Stephen McKee had been battling Laminitis for approximately nine months. A number of options were exhausted in trying to nurse Sunline back to health with little avail before the McKee family made the decision to euthanize the popular Sunline.

McKee will address the media on the tragedy later today.

A privilege to watch her race, Sunline leaves us with many great memories amassing 13 Group 1 victories.

Sunline regularly demolished top class Group 1 fields, case in point being her seven length win in the 2000 Cox Plate.
Can anyone direct me to Speedy's tips this weekend? Id rather cash in now rather than hear him aggressively boast how easily he won on Monday. I suggest we keep this thread going to check Speedy's tips each Friday ...and all win a motza.
Worst poster is virtually every day on here. There so much animosity on here. Id rather know ....who are the best? (Even if its broken done to most insightful, best tipster and most entertaining)
Well done to Man U Fan, 26 lays in just a couple of days. It will never be done again. He's saved punters MILLIONS! Everyone jump on board.
