The first race this Saturday NIGHT starts at 4.46pm Shocked Rolling Eyes

the last of 7 races is at 8.02pm


i know the times allocated are done by sky racing but this is a joke, personally i doubt i would even get to the car by then when leaving Unley Oval

how can the paceway restaurant survive if the meeting is all but finished when you start eating ?

Scrappy might still go because Norwood are on Friday night but i'll go back to the footy club for a change & spend my money there instead of on the punt

Well here you go, the South Australian cup will now be run in February & the prize money has changed, changes down to $60,000 I think the 3 stooges said on the harness show the other morning

I suppose if your broke & cutting costs everywhere then this is just another option to cut costs

more cuts i heard of last night Ben Harding & Graham Fisher

Ben was doing an outstanding job with the trotsguide section on the website with his form analyst, race maps & overall tipping

Graham was writing great online articles & taking great photos at the track as well, they are going to use Paul Courts (harness racing weekly) who has done articles over the last couple of years or so but is based interstate

i believe there are more heads to roll as they try to save $400,000.00 per year

probably, he worked for the Advertiser for a long time & fish is his nickname

Also we were informed on Saturday night that the Jubilee room will be closed & everyone is welcomed upstairs (paceway restaurant) & to cut more costs they'll be putting on their own staff in the next few weeks for tab betting & making instead of 2.5 % of turnover it'll be 10%, we were informed of this by a former Central player in Bill Cochrane, he's a nice guy

The trial period of 6 weeks of racing on Sunday rather than Friday nights has finished & this Friday nights meeting scheduled for Globe Derby has been scrapped, I doubt there will be trotting in this state in the next 5-10 years

Is the new caller at Globe related to Kenny Calendar???
Ive heard him call some Dog races and he doesn't even call the whole field.

Its shocking to listen to on the radio...

Are the trots more doomed than anyone is actually admitting?

Mondays meeting has been scrapped because of a lack of nominations etc

The Greyhounds are always Extending and Re- Extending Noms. But thats mainly due to lack of numbers, stemming back to proposed NSW ban.

Not sure about the trots?
Where are the horses?
Is there a lack of numbers?
Is it better for trainers to travel to the border, Mildura? Etc

I know one of the well known trainers is moving to Mildura as soon as the builders have finished up there.......Anthony Robinson

Had mentioned it earlier, but to ease your mind with some that trial they can be qualifying for a stand, qualifying to get back in the draw with either stand or mobile starts & some for added fitness before heading to the track after a spell plus other reasons but they are the main reasons

Just got back to the motel from it, good crowd but not as many as I would have thought, the reason it lost its appeal is that the inter dominion was the flagship/pinnacle of harness racing, the Victorians were the first to upset the apple cart by making other races like the Victoria cup, Hunter cup part of the inter, that Stamp ruined it....then they have had seeded races where basically all the favoured runners get through, this year it went back to how it was & was a much better series & less short price favs....was happy to run into iamthewarrior at Melton where I was convinced that the tiger would end up in front & be hard to catch & got the choccies

4 bookies there & with respect there was one bookie I could not have a bet with

His name is Byrne Bet.....not joking either

Carnage race 4 at Globe Derby Saturday night, it happened almost in front of me and it was one shocking crash, looked worse live. Watch the horse running 4th. 3 horses remained motionless laying on the track after the crash, 2 drivers were in serious trouble. All horses came up ok at the end. I know one driver broke a leg, another had facial injuries and a broken wrist.

The latter driver Paul Cavallaro also has broken ribs

I thought it was disgraceful that neither the course commentator Jimmy Jacques or the MC Lachlan Stace didn’t ask for the crowd to leave the track & let the professionals do their job, I know the latter was text to do so but ignored the text, I understand family & friends were concerned for their loved ones but they should have firstly not run out & secondly should have been told to leave, albeit the clerk of the course asked people to leave the track but that direction wasn’t adhered too

The whole scene looked unprofessional, thankfully every horse only sustained superficial scratches

What happened is the horse I’m sure Blake chocked down & veered inwards then outwards & the latter was the huge problem
