These type of races including the Everest, sales company days etc are messing up the sires Lists big time.  Yes Snitzel would just be on top without the Everest but its fair to say I am Invincible is the stand out sire this year.  With some nice showing from young middle distance sires also catching the eye.  At least it Happy Clapper, Amphitrite or Alizee win the class of the winner deserves the prizemoney.  Saddly most of the others don't.

The on-course bookies are going to have to get new, wider boards with room for the extra 0’s needed for the prices some of these will be put up at.

Totally agree the magic millions day is another that could be spent on welfare on the 1000 plus horses sold every year, Qld racing are well behind the other 2 .

A handful of rivets and half a tube of silicon to fix one badly damaged Atherton barrier with no padding,   passed as safe by Racing Qld Stewards that resulted in life threatening injury to my filly is evidence that money is not being administered evenly, I would show the picture of the injury but many would be too shocked at the severity leaves a bad taste in mouth and pocket , racing Authorities need to generally pull their socks up.

RV CEO Giles Thompson said, “To receive near on 140,000 validated eligible votes is a resounding endorsement of the All-Star Mile and shows that Australian sports fans have embraced the concept in its first year.

“We’re particularly pleased that 45 percent of our voters were female and that people within the 25 to 34 year-old age group were the most active, accounting for a quarter of all validated eligible votes.

I saw the RV chairman interviewed and he was rather pleased with how things were going. Quality of the field was not a major consideration.

It doesn't rather make a muddle of their stand against the Everest.  This format doesn't work for the best field.  Even the Kosciuszko has a better format with the country horses.

Happy Clapper or Alizee should win. With Amphitrite also close.  It depends which Grunt turns up.  Beautiful horse but he's all over the place.  Some of these will be streeted.

All well and good but one of the Gr1 winners is Foundry who won a Metrop, 2400m, and who hasn't raced in 477 days.

I don’t mind the field, gives my horse a live chance.
Not everyday you get a chance for a $25,000 Adelaide MM purchase to take on a $5 million race.

Looking forward to it.

This is quite hilarious.
The VRC board will probably be hiding out in the cloak room out the back of the members stand when this farce is being run. Desperately trying to work out the inevitable wholesale changes to the concept. They will probably be clamouring to send out a press release before the field gets to Chiquita Lodge.
