Almanac Racing: Sloppy Sydney needs to shift the Carnival

Sydney weather patterns cause problems for their Autumn Carnival. Crio is a practical thinker. With Melbourne March weather magnificent and Sydney Octobers beautiful, why not make a switch.

Almanac Racing – Bonanza

We’ve had Ben/Adam/Hoss and Little Joe (cricket even flirted with Hilton), but Josh Cartwright’s ride last Saturday’s been the “Bonanza” for racing ghouls – danger, corruption and a mysterious blonde…and there may be more to come. There are racing meeting’s this weekend also but the best advice is to watch the trials and wait for Feb.

Almanac Racing – look away now!

Nothing to see here folks. Racing has gone open misere to finish 2016. James MacDonald’s demise (what a fool) deflects from RVL’s fiasco. Credit to Godolphin – I suspect their clout could have covered over the mess but they have taken the heat, supported Stewards and Intel, and racing will ultimately benefit. Victorian Racing finishes [Read more]

It’s taken him half a century but Crio has finally changed his approach. [Love it Crio – JTH]

Almanac Racing: Crio’s best tip this week is for Warrnambool (but it’s a good one)

Years of working on course has taught me that the last couple of Saturdays pre-Christmas are a write off. The money’s just not there. What staggers me is that is somehow tends to reappear after the “Santa pause”, when I’d reckon everyone should be skint (except for miserable bastards like myself who spend nowt on [Read more]
