Josh has a deep love of harness racing and is also involved in mentoring many of our young harness racing drivers. We also expect to have a number of other Adelaide Crows players involved in the syndicate.
HRSA are also currently sourcing horses for the syndicate. The syndicate will also have a syndicate manager who will manage all aspects of the syndicate including regular newsletters and planning race day and social events.

Syndication is one way to set numbers attending on course
I now have been going back to the thoroughbred on course meetings as I am a syndication member of a few horses

There was an ALLCODES syndicate once
The guy who was the manager had about 250 members paying about $200 per year
The syndicate had a thoroughbred a pacer and a greyhound from all 3 codes
It was good catching up with other syndicate members for a day or night out
I met and made new friends

This crows syndication looks a good venture

Josh Jenkins is also the ambassador for the Breeder's Crown meeting to be held next Sunday at Melton. He's got horses with Michael Stanley who did a stint training and driving in Adelaide back in the 90s. Josh will be in the owner's marquee on the day so thank goodness our 2yo (Mano De Dios) made it into the trotter's final. My kids would have been very disappointed if we'd missed the opportunity to see JJ. (We will be trying our best but I think we're probably outclassed in this race by Illawong Byron, Empire Bay and Custodian)

Yep, Hand of God... We're definitely hoping for a miracle. His mother's name translates as "Arm of Honour" (although it has a slightly cheeky slang translation) so it seemed a logical next step. (His stable name is Diego for the soccer fans). Wink

they get no one at the track now & last night with the showdown on there was even less but can you believe this ?

last week in the take away section

1 piece of fish & chips $6.00
2 piece of fish & chips $8.00

this week
1 piece of fish & chips $13.90
2 piece of fish & chips $17.90

upstairs

the $10.00 meals are now $15.00 & the dearer meals have gone up between $3.00 & $6.00

how can any business have a price hike of that magnitude in one hit ?

i went outside & bought a couple of pilko pasties for $2.00 each & an iced coffee inside for $4.50.....$8.50 for me

That is quite a hake to increase the costs by so much in the take away section


I was quite impressed with the upstairs meals when I went to Globe Derby last year
The meals were good, and some rather inexpensive for $10 + food from the salad bar
Going from $10 to $15 for those meals , is acceptable , I would still dine there
Im not sure too many would consistently pay $13-90 for 1 piece of fish & chips at the takeaway section though

The HRSA Board are delighted to announce that the Trots are returning to the Wayville Showgrounds on Friday 27 October 2017. This will be the first race meeting at Wayville meeting since 1973.
Home to the South Australian harness racing from 1925 to 1973, the Wayville Track was described as racing in a coliseum. Especially during the 1950s and 60s, crowds flocked to the track in the halcyon days of the sport with names such as Webster, Holberton, Messenger and Shinn being household names.
Wayville was also the scene of some of harness racing greatest ever moments including the 1963 Inter Dominion won by New Zealand champion Cardigan Bay before a record crowd of 45,000 people. Cardigan Bay was the first horse to win
$1 million in prizemoney. In addition, Wayville hosted countless memorable South Australian Cups featuring outstanding horses including SA champion, Minuteman.
With Wayville’s proximity to the city and excellent public transport options, the HRSA Board is expecting a massive crowd in attendance with a great night of racing and entertainment with a back to the 70s retro theme.
Planning for the race meeting is well underway and the race meeting also has been endorsed by UBET and Sky Racing and final regulatory approval from the Independent Gambling Authority is anticipated expected within the coming weeks.

Not sure, but what's the comparison in distance of a lap with Wayville compared to Globe Deby? I think Wayville would be a smaller circuit.

Wayville is a lot smaller (leaders track) without knowing the exact distance, the circumference of Wayville would be about 600 metres & at Globe Derby it is about 840 metres

Not knowing a lot about trotting, 'leaders track' not enough length in the final straight to run the leaders down.

Do you think that makes for better racing Bayman? Although having a race close to the city will help with crowd numbers.

Wayville like most showground tracks were known as ''saucers'', which basically means that most of the time your going around a bend & the horses out wide would work too hard & never make any ground & then tire, plus as you said the short straights & tight turns only help leaders......better racing you ask, i'd say no because not every horse will have a decent opportunity to win, however it will make a wonderful spectacle & i'd imagine the crowd for the novelty factor alone will be very very healthy

Im looking forward to this meeting as Ive never been to a Wayville Trotting meet

It will be an interesting comparism for Lee , that being ,  what was more exciting, when he went to Wayville Trots pre 1973 ,  or when he went to watch West Adelaide Wayville SANFL games between the world wars
