Good And The Bad

Information in good faith - we take the good with the bad

The Gold Circle first-timer initiative is a boon for punters. But sometimes it goes awry – as things do in this game.

On Saturday Weiho Marwing said Flowersfromabrook ‘will need the experience’. She was backed and duly flashed up under brother Weichong to win the Turffontein second race going away. The beautifully bred three-year-old was a R425 000 buy from the 2016 Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale and she looks a smart sort in the making.

We live to punt another day.

  1. The rules and regulations of racing changes daily, half the time the ‘powers’ don’t even know these changes, no wonder the racing industry is in shambles!!!!
    Quartet calculations are based on the first four horses past the post. If you double float then your two horses plus 2 other selections must be in the first 4 to finish. On Saturday my 2 floating bankers(horses) deadheated for 4th plus I had the others, but was told that it was not a winning bet??? I cant understand because both my horses came 4th, which means they were in the first four, not so?? When I queried this, Phumelela tells me that there was a ruling?? So where is this rulling printed/communicated to the public and it does this not appear on their betting website, explaining how trifectas and quartets work.?
    We really are in a sad state and by the way……how do you set up a Big Screen and a Beer Garden right next to the parade ring, the grooms had a party watching the soccer derby???????
