Not sure if its a free family night
I would think with the SA Cup on they would charge an admission fee

Looks like a great night of racing at Globe with plenty of South Aussie expats coming home for a tilt at the riches on offer. There are a couple of notable things about the meeting.

Smoken Up (race8 no8) is trying to become only the second standardbred in Australia to win the same group 1 race 5 times. He's won 4 previous editions of the cup and is an old marvel, recently setting a new track record at Ballarat, and going better than 1.50 for the mile to qualify for the recent Miracle Mile. He's drawn 8 and while he's no longer at his absolute best, he is still very competitive in this class.

Mister Zion (race 6 no 13) is attempting to become the first standardbred to win both the SA Pacing Cup and the SA Trotters Cup. While it's not unusual for horses to switch gait during their careers, it is after competing in Group 1 level. He's a genuine star of trotting and is a fair chance of creating some history tonight because the Trotter's Cup, while a good field, lacks a little quality at the top end.

Last week entry was $7 for adults, $4 for concessions with kids under 16 free, I expect for the main race of the year that might jump up to $10 and $5 but it is worth it because there are really good quality fields all night.

Take a rug and sit on the lawns and enjoy yourselves, unfortunately you can't take your own grog in any more but you can take food/softies etc and have a pretty cheap night.

The Australian Harness Racing page has all the fields/form analysis available for the meeting at
http://www.harness.org.au/fields.cfm?mc=GD110114

so you can print your own form guide from home if you want.

Bayman studies the Adelaide form a lot more than me but if you're looking for something outside the favourites to bet on tonight, I like

Race 2 no 1. El Pasadeno
Race 3 no 1. Lord Monaloo
Race 4 no 2. Two Timer Lombo

in the Cups i like Mister Zion (13) and Caribbean Blaster (no7) although his draw makes it very tricky.

Good luck if you're punting everyone.

cheers

Will be a great night at Globe Derby tonight and with this great weather there will be a big crowd.

A ten race programme and good quality horses should make for some fast times.

If a SA horse wins the Cup
FIND ME ,
I will shout you at the nearest bar tonight a drink of your choice

Only studied 2 races
Those races had no Interstate horses


R2
2-1-3-7
2 looks leader and winner , will be short odds though
1 likely to be on pegs behind fav, will run a good race , exacta hope
3 dour horse , will be doing best work late, place hope
7 should be 3 back pegs


R4...7-9-3-10
7 might be too short if odds on , be in finish
9 awkward draw, racing well
3 draw gives it EW hope
10 poor draw, galloped out of mobile last start , if steps , likely to be running on very late

Good luck
Wearing blue top
With red and blue biros in my top pocket[naturally] ,FIND ME if you qualify for a drink !

Great night was had last night, met up with a few forum members, but how do you pick winners? I think there were 4 races where horse no 8 won... by the time i decided to pick number 8, (main race) number 7 won. Smile
Other than losing a couple of $ on bets, it was a good night.

It was good to catch up with you FB at the trots we had a terrific night--Backing the winner of the main race helped.

What did you think of the band ?
Did you see the lanky tall wiry fair haired guitarist ?
Best song they played was , What I like About You[Romantics cover]
Hour or so after the races finished the band was still strutting away to several hundred people[and myself]
I gave the band a 7.5 rating

Good to see some old faces and chatting with them during the night
People I had not seen since the 70's rolled up

Was entertained in the committee room
Food was excellent
Most impressed with the catering staff , friendly service

I did see the wiry guitarist, looked a bit like Cornsey. Smile
I left after the main race but I thought the bands version of April sun in Cuba was ok.

Both races the favs, as expected , were too short at odds on[in my opinion]
My 2nd picks got up at $7-60[El Pasadeno] and $5-60 [Katesaroyal  Very Happy ]

while we go almost every week, we too had a great night as well

most of the racing was action packed although i thought the cup would've been run at a quicker tempo in the first half of the last mile, the shorter distance of this years race kept some of the lessor lights in the race rather than them dropping out, the roar of the crowd as they turned for home was turning back the clock to the old days.......

a couple of spot fires happened in the stalls, one between the trainers of the two horses that locked wheels & had to be separated, the former croweater  wanted to get physical the other trainer just wanted the verbal altercation.....they had to be separated

the other altercation was between a part owner whose horse has to be named after him & the trainer & this bloke is a nut

I was out the back  having a freshie (smoke) near a BBQ area and 2 women were going at it verbally, one claiming that she and her family have been waiting for this race for months and drove for 7 1/2 hours to get here. She was not a happy camper as it had to do with a horse she owned for one of the main races. The other woman walked away under a barrage of abuse, the first women then yelled out how she will find the stewards or some one and stormed off towards the stables... that was as entertaining as the main race itself.  Very Happy

I used to go every week for years.

It was then a long time before my next visit and I was shocked.

Thousands used to go and there were about 30 bookies. The bookie ring was now a car park.

The stands were well packed to watch the races, now there was hardly anyone in the stands.

Progress, I suppose.

rumour at the trots last night is that the club may be heading into receivership & will change its name to keep running...............i think the rumour has some truth in it & i believe the tab (Tattstab) will be a major sponsor


i was given differing stories last night & no doubt some were embellished, however the theme was basically the same

Very disappointing to hear that Bayman but not surprising, the Trots here in Adelaide have been on a downward spiral for many years and part of the blame must be the rediculous decision to sell off the SATAB by the government a few years ago. Prize money is the lowest of any main land meeting.
!
The writing was on the wall when many of the top trainers left for the eastern states to chase the better money.
I must say while I was there last week I had a good look around the place and to be quite honest it is in the state of delapidation, the whole place looks like it needs to be pulled down and rebuilt to come into the 21st century.

While I was there last week I ventured down to the parade ring to see a horse that a friend of mine had in the next race, I was the only person standing there watching the horses going around the parade ring, that has never happened to me in the years of going to Globe Derby.
