I was too busy making a coffee to care
I cant get over a whole state having a public holiday for a horse race!!
Now...a public holiday for a car race or a motorcycle race, sure...but a horse race which lasts less than 3 minutes!? *:D ;)
Its only a Melbourne holiday but the rest of the state (and country) suffer. The problem is that now the Monday is a defacto holiday/RDO/sickie and most businesses are closed Monday and Tuesday... its a bugger getting anything done in Victoria over these couple of days.
Anyway... apart from the media blitz its over now.... and you can see why Im not a punter... Daffodil came 11th
My son backed Daffodil too.
Unfortunately for a lot of punters the race came to a Shocking conclusion.
Somebody had to say it! ;DOriginally Posted by 625E4358525344515952360 link=1257220727/5#5 date=1257250021
I laughed like h*ll as we put the "LIVE WEBCAST" up on the big screen at work and ran the extra speakers off the radio.
The "LIVE WEBCAST" must have been delayed at least 2 minutes as the race was half over on the radio before the horses were even in the gate.
It made me really glad I didnt care.
We used to love listening to Roy and HG commentate this race on Triple J...made seeing it worth while! ;D
Bring back Roy and HG I say!

The results of the race was Shocking ,Crimescene and the third horse is owned by a dictactor.
