There's been some big runs today, but surely that performance takes the cake. HUGE!

How good are these European trainers ?
 
How can they keep them up soo long yet we are lucky to get one good run out of our trainers ?
 
Super filly, A heck of a lot better than I gave her credit for. I thought she was purely a stayer.
 
Well done Andy.

Don't think it is a well done job djebel - I had 12 horses (or something like that) to your one. Not quite fair for you :P
 
But what a great raceday...I want to get there soon.

I'm going to have a play in the next and go with Good Words each way. The gate's a bit of a worry but he has been racing well since his move from Melbourne... two wins and a placing from four starts.

Vision d'Etat?? I know it's a G1 winner but hardly a world beater.

Centrebet offered her up early at $4.40 and that was about the best price I saw.
 
Too short for me but still couldn't see her losing.

what would So you think do to Snow Fairy over 2000m at wfa. Smash her surely?

Would love to see some of our top horses travel overseas. Besides sending sprinters to Royal Ascot only the B Graders seem to be going at the moment.

Next Year?

Mile: Whobe, Typhoon, Rangirangdoo

God bless Snow Fairy. What a win, very game filly. I backed her all day starting at $4.40 and kept backing her up until seconds before they jumped at $3.50.
 
Also had a small go on Mastery and an each way bet on Regal Bench.
 
An enjoyable Sunday night on the punt. Would love to get there one day. I can convince the missus with the shopping over there.

The races were strong enough but you just have to think Typhoon Tracy and Whobegotyou would've had every possible chance to win that mile race and the prizemoney isn't too bad.

Not so sure SYT would've beaten Snow Fairy in her current form, not after his long spring. Gotta be set for races to win them.

Because they don't push the 2YO too hard.

They also train in slightly better surrounds than Anzac Parade, James Ruse Drive and their equivalents in Flemington and Caulfield.
 
In saying that, I'd argue Waller has proven himself more than capable of getting many runs out of a horse each prep. He's had horses in work for a year at a time. I'm sure there are others, perhaps training in some open spaces.

Snow Fairy has been in work all year, she was hardly set for this race.

They will have her ready again in 3 months for Dubai and the rest of the 2011 European calender, without any one race being more important than any other group 1.
