PEAR SHAPED!!! Live And Free’s race went!!! in the straight. Absolutely nowhere to go until the last 50m then flew to the line like Bernborough. We will be on next start wherever he starts.
MATTHEW HILL: The best race caller in the business, he just seems to be getting better. His calls at Flemington on Saturday were outstanding.
BLAKE SHINN: Take a bow riding in superlative form and none better than his ride on Shogun Sun although beaten by an atom, it was a superb ride.
WHAT THE? Racing tight in the straight on our biggest tracks with the big wide open spaces SERIOUSLY!!! sometimes it seems there is only one run available and all participants are GOING FOR IT,I find it hard to believe. The only time I can see that might be a possibility is when the rail is out a ridiculous number of meters anything up to 15meters on some tracks, to save the inner pad for a future meeting. WHAT THE!!!!
BRAVE SONG: This horse has wintered up here extremely well and we are hoping he races in the spring, he just might jump another notch or two.
