Dunno what it is usually, but that had me Surprised ... or maybe even Shocked ...

Reckon I can guess who the JPN horse was. Wink Makes me hungry just thinking 'bout it!


The pre-race experts' call that Vauban was way too short looks right now. One was quoted saying there was a 1 missing in front of Vauban's odds!! Faded badly.

sb offered "rest of field" odds against Vauban of 1.15.

Nah, I don't know how that stuff works, I'm a very seldom gambler. Just $5 on each for the win and place, plus a couple of others, one of which is still running. Wink

Same here, mate. Haven't had a bet on the races since Melb. Cup 2 years ago. Tried to get on but was too confusing.

Just as well. My numbers ran nowhere, including dead last (pulled up), #8.

Melbourne Cup winner Verry Elleegant died while giving birth in Ireland.


Sydney-based part-owner Brae Sokolski:

“In layman’s terms, the foal position was in the worst position it could be in. They call it a ‘dog-sitter’ position. It was almost impossible to get the foal out. They couldn’t save the foal, and the foal caused a lot of internal damage to Verry Elleegant.

“They rushed her to a clinic, but they couldn’t save her. Verry Elleegant was insured, but it’s irrelevant. She was like a member of the family. I’ll never race another one that is better.”

500/1 multi collects don't come along too often, but when they do Smile

Took ;
Pies by 1-39
Elliot - kick;1st, 2nd or 3rd goal
Hill - kick 3+ goals
Checkers kick 2+ goals
Mitchell 20+ possessions
Neale 25+ possessions

A teeny $5 returns $2500. A grand off the mortgage, $500 into Kels holiday account, a bit of play money for the weekend and a big one at the casino coming up on Sunday afternoon. Cool
