Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

A less than stellar day, yesterday but...

We've still got a strike rate of 31.72% (for the top rated horse) for the month so far.

And, we got a 50% strike rate for our PBS selections, so it's not all bad.

As a result, we made a profit and are over 14 points up for 21 points staked.

Anyway, I'll get to that, firstly let's get on and take a quick look at yesterday's results in more detail....

Something to make you laugh


Three guys, stranded on a desert island, find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants them each one wish.

The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home.

The second guy wishes the same.

The third guy says "I’m lonely. I wish my friends were back here."

Rigor Mortis

Little Billy came home from school to see the families pet rooster dead in the front yard.

Rigor mortis had set in and it was flat on its back with its legs in the air.

When his Dad came home Billy said, "Dad our roosters dead and his legs are sticking in the air. Why are his legs sticking in the air?"

His father thinking quickly said, "Son, that's so God can reach down from the clouds and lift the rooster straight up to heaven."

"Gee Dad that's great," said little Billy.

A few days later, when Dad came home from work, Billy rushed out to meet him yelling, "Dad, Dad we almost lost Mom today!"

"What do you mean?" said Dad.

"Well Dad, I got home from school early today and went up to your bedroom and there was Mom flat on her back with her legs in the air screaming, "Jesus I'm coming, I'm coming"

If it hadn't of been for Uncle George holding her down we'd have lost her for sure!"


Today's early test ratings show 19 rated races from three meetings.

Every race is rated.

Have a great day's racing!
