Morning News

focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning...

Another quiet day for us,yesterday.

However, as we are running at a Strike Rate (for the top rated horse) of 28.39% for the month...

I'm not too worried.

As there are 9 meetings today, the morning ratings might be slightly later than normal(perhaps only 10-15 minutes) and...

I am doing some work on the evening preview ratings; as a result they might come out later (or even earlier) than normal.

For more detail, here are the results in the Traffic Light Results PDF format... Yesterday's Traffic Light Results

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

A mother took her daughter to the doctor and asked him to give her an examination to determine the cause of the daughter's swollen abdomen.

It only took the doctor about 2 seconds to say, "Gimme a break, lady! Your daughter is pregnant!"

The mother turn red with fury, and she argued with the doctor that *her* daughter was a good girl, and would *never* compromise her reputation by having sex with a boy.

The doctor faced the window and silently watched the horizon.

The mother became enraged and screamed, "Quit looking out the window! Aren't you paying attention to me?"

"Yes, of course I am paying attention, ma'am. It's just that the last time this happened, a star appeared in the east, and three wise men came.

I was hoping they'd show up again, and help me figure out who got your daughter pregnant!"


Today's early test ratings show 62 rated races from 9 meetings.

Have a great day's racing!

As always...

My kindest regards
