Caufield Raceday

This is the way the season ends. Not with a bang but a whimper. Slow 6, no show. Hopefully I’ll be back in the spring for the Caulfield Guineas.

    NSW racing was at Scone, way out in the country, and most fields were absurdly large. So too Brisbane and Adelaide. The only manageable fields were at Caulfield. At least I could sit at home and bet with a real racing.com screen without having to use my iPhone. In R2, Hear The Chant and Selenia were the only relaxed horses I could see, but in my experience two good ones often mean a third lurking elsewhere that I’ve missed, so I chickened out. Wouldn’t you know it? They ran the quinella. In R3 My Paisann looked good, but could only hang on for fourth. “A degree of internal exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage” according to the stewards’ report. In R4 Platinum Angel looked very relaxed and won easily but was too short to back. In R9, Hursley ($2.20) looked relaxed and serious and made it into third from too far back. A small profit for the day. Hope Geoffrey enjoys the break. We’ll miss the free tuition.
