Replied by chooky on topic HEY bev...Good Luck is he gonna win?
[:0] Well as you say thats horses for you. We used to have a racehorse in the family that we all followed and it won some and sure did lose some as well :( It looked like he did not want to be at the races .

Double Are Jay,
race 3 number 3 at the morrinsville meet at Rotorua.
Shes had the last 2 starts on grass for 2 fourths, both been good runs, but unlucky at waipa when she got swamped for room, just missed out on 3rd, last start at thames where she stepped back at tape and ran home strongly for 4th again, P ferguson is sticking with her (i think he is as frustrated with her as us at being so unlucky)
So maybe today is the day for the winners circle!!!! i hope so, we have hired the local rugbyclubs mini van with sober driver!!!! so if you hear lots of noise from one van, it might be us :-)
Oh and she doesnt mind a bit of rain, i just hope that the track is still safe, it 'shirts' me that its not safe enough for gallopers, but alright for the Standys. So of course proiety is for the horse before the win, as we will be at Tauranga the next Sunday with same people and same van. Come along!!!!!!

Worked at Gore races yesterday. Had a torrential downpour of hail/rain etc, They ran one race after that, then deemed the track too unsafe to continue (gallops), so abandoned the last 2 races. Was nice to get home just that little bit earlier tho :D

No, I don't think that is the problem[:0]

Watched the race and felt the driver should have stayed on the fence and waited for the passing lane, rather than roll off the fence and try to out gun them. Just my 2c worth.....

yeah, we had much discussion on the drive. no one knows why he did it, but he did say she didnt have a sprint like she usually does. So unless something is wrong with her, we will be going to Tauranga, she hardly blew, so she didnt try that hard, but we 'think' its becuase she due to come into season, and she's extremely lazy when shes in.
BTW when Glow lines up again, put the house onit. Very very dissapointed camp when she got taken out at the start (another J Coppins horse)

alright, i have brought this thread back to life :-)
Double Are Jay is still racing, still knocking on the door, had a very good second two starts ago, ran a good 5th the other night at Cambridge against 1 win horses. the camp is very happy, and Peter is very keen for her on Thurs and Sun down the line, so maybe worth a place at least.
It is with pleasure to say John Grey will be starting again on Saturday at Tauranga. He is very well on all accounts, first start fresh up since his spell. Hopefully we can find a jockey to suit him.
Ground is still hard, so as the rain comes (fingers crossed soon) he will only get better, i think we are in for a good weekend of horse racing, especially me being owner of two horses that have good chances. Especially if my luck has anything to do with the great fishing had over the easter break!!!
Ps Quiet whisper for maiden steples at Te Aroha, Sportaivian if they jump safe around him, should be a good thing!
