Caulfield VOBIS Day

April 16th, 2016 2 comments

Nothing to report, unless you count Red Bomber! You can tell things are pretty desperate when all I could find to photograph was a disadvantaged person scrabbling under the vending machine while I was waiting at Southern Cross station.

He must have been under there for some five minutes before emerging triumphant with a $2 coin in hand. I congratulated him heartily! He gave me the bottoms up sign. A drink! That’s what you need to be a winner. Determination and discipline! Especially with such a miserable implement! Where do you find a piece of tree on the platform at Southern Cross?

    An inspiring lesson in perseverance, so important for the dedicated punter!

    May have found a new variable on Saturday though unfortunately not something seen before the race. Stewards vision shows Craig Williams talking to Miss Promiscuity throughout the race…whispering sweet nothings?
