That race was a joke, completely set up so she would win.

Looked like she could get caught in an awkward spot early

But then they all got out of her way and left her alone in a perfect spot for her

Waller should appear in front of the stewards after that.

What are you all talking about.  I backed Benbatl to win 5 figures. Winx was just way too good.

There's always someone who's unhappy.  Unhappy

For some reason finding entirely elusive reasons to be just that.  Thumbs Down

If you bought into a syndication and owned 10% of D'Argento would you be happy with that?

Agree. Right horse won no doubt but if I were an owner of D’Argento I’d be filthy. Has he ever been ridden that way? Sacrificial lamb.

Yes I wonder what djebel thought of that.
They would never dream of such tactics in Europe.

Enjoy her for what she is.
She could of sat 5 wide the trip and won.

I'm interested how getting Godolphin, Weir, O'Brien and the Pittmans to agree to let her win seems more logical then a horse unbeaten since the '15 autumn being to good for them again.

Stablemate is ridden against not only his pattern but the stable pattern and we get clowns posting strawmen like this when people comment on it.
Jog on.

No Pace in the race so something had to be in front.

To suggest anything untoward is plain madness.       The Worlds best middle distance performer , with 28 straight wins , was always going to beat that lot.

   She was at half pace , apart from 50 m in the straight .

Accept her for being the champion she is .

Yeah mate, they all got together over a beer/wineand conspired to hand the race to the great mare.

Don't know if Aiden was present or on phone relay from Northern Island, however he was apparently supping Guinness.  As for the Middle Eastern guys, in the absence of alcohol they probably tried some Khashoggi Red.  Wink

Actually on the way nothing was coming come other than a three year old filly it was the place to be.  That is called riding to the track.  Give it a break Why oh why do you even follow racing when you can't enjoy something special and unique.

I’m not suggesting it changed the result, but if you don’t think it’s suspicious that the first time a stablemate just happens to reverse its racing pattern........

Hang on, no ones arguing she wouldn’t or shouldn’t have won. But Waller should have some questions to answer. Doubt he will.

Most definitely would’ve still won.
Just the way the race was set up for her but the stable mate.
If Dargento was mine I would be sacking Waller.
No way was he given a chance in the race, he was ridden to set it up for the mare.

cringe.

Humor, let alone common sense, has sadly and forever escaped you Sneck.

Most of us celebrate the day and the win, but not you.  Sad really.

ps did you get much business as a fast food stall employee at Randwick today?
