The horses have all been running well.
Lots of placings, just not good enough to win.
It happens, that’s the game!!

Dunno, in the Weir sample I mentioned, there were only 12 seconds to go with the 11 winners, that is a slump. For whatever reason(s).

Was talking to one of the Warrnambool boys yesterday and Weir's apparently trying to replicate the sandy his and dales at Ed Barty's old Trevenson stud in order that he might get that edge back.

He had 12 runners for 3 winners from 6 races. How is his strike rate calculated ?

That could not possibly be easy, It sounds like a tough engineering job to get it to stay in one place ?

Would he be better off just building a rising straight sand track, surely easier from an engineering point of view ?

Its an improvement. As soon as anyone bags a jockey or trainer, they start winning.
