I just can't conceive how when we have U.S, French, British and Irish horses regularly competing for the biggest prizes against each other we somehow are meant to believe that Aussie horses are better, it can only make sense to an Australian I guess.
Poor **** has never seen a map. rotflmfao.

Sadly it seems that you have fallen for the hype from your own media, there is very little to compete against down there, short of moving the country up to the northern hemisphere (and rest assured no one wants that) you will never compete at the top level so best stfu.

Everybody? rotflmfao. No. Just the English.Prize money is why horses race. Fact. Not a false god at all. Colts race to win prize money, to stand at stud, for people with mares who want to produce offspring, to win prize money. Prize money is racing. And there is no rubbishing English racing that I can do that isn't the truth. Hey lets all race a horse in England where cheating, fraud, and race fixing is all accepted as part of racing. rotflmfao. Mugs.
Where does the prize money come from? Mug Aussie punters!

Where did your mighty Frankel run to prove the doubters wrong? 100 kms from home? So that is where you need to prove yourself to be a champion, within a 100km radius of Ascot?Frankel's home was Newmarket, and I'm pretty sure Doncaster, York and Newbury are all over 200km from there. hth
York 172 miles = 275 kms
Doncaster 132 miles = 211.2
Ascot 90 miles = 144
Newbury 121 miles = 193.6
Goodwood 137 miles =219.2
Frankels Career in Distance travelled.
2031.8 kms travelled to race in his whole career.
Yeah a well travelled world beater. Not at all kept under cotton wool.

Henry Cecil Frankels trainer is old school--even in his pomp he only occasionally travelled his horses to France--the Uk pattern built up over 150 odd years would be perfect for him---he would have worked out Frankels agenda to his benefit and raced whoever turned up
He was entered in the 10f race, dodged it, and said after the race he had been crying out for the 10f trip. rotflmfao. Pick and choose the weakest field and then run it is the reality.

No, we believe the stop watch. Which you guys choose not to use. In races. rotflmfao

That's a load of crap too, 1 team in the AFL is probably going to be found guilty and through the sports scientist at that 1 club other clubs in Rugby League are linked, without the sport scientists links, it's probably not even a news story

You reckon?There were some astonishing finishes in last season's NRL weren't there? Could scarcely be seen to be believed some of them.
Astonishing finishes? They happen. I hardly think anybody fixing an NRL game will wait until the end to try and produce a miraculous finish.

They are everywhere and I never claimed anything was clean. But the difference is we don't accept it. We don't call it race tactics and bet on it.
If there was 100k dollars bet on a horse here that was run dead as the pacemaker running 100% for 50% of the race then expecting the field to try to run around it without falling off their mount the **** would never ride again, the trainers would never train again, and the owners would probably lose that privilege too.
You guys call it tactics and think it is fine to bet on a horse that has zero chance of winning a race. And not only that, some of the time it is there to lose the race, and to put other horses out of the race.
Fraud, insider trading, are a couple of terms that spring to mind. Not only is it a joke, but the majority of you not only accept it, but claim it to be the epicentre of the world of racing.
But yes, where there is money, there is greed, and temptation, and no doubt there are quite a few races where we are rorted. I don't even really bet on harness racing any more over here. When you have 1 family making up 50% of the race in regards to drivers, trainers, that are married, brothers, sons, daughters, etc etc, then I won't go near it. My father used to train a few, and on a few occassions the driver he was paying to drive his horse told him not to even bother going to the bookie ring because it wasn't his turn, needless to say he drove them himself after that.
My eyes are well open. But we sure as hell don't accept it as being right.

There are many, many small trainers here making a good living from the game, some of whom started with virtually nothing. So, please as we have had to remind you many times before do some research first rather than flaunt your ignorance.
Just because you write something on the internet, doesn't make it true. They are making what their masters allow them to make. Simple as that. They are little play things.
