They do my head in all the time,have to turn the sound off.This is supposed to be a Racing Channel but turning into a Mickey Mouse outfit.Racing TV are much better by far,these females have not got a clue, and as for seeing Split Screens for Hong Kong racing when there is British racing going on.The so called Live Pictures are so far behind the actual live racing,if Racing TV can show pictures which are not delayed so much why cant this so called Sky Sports Racing Channel do it as well,they will soon have Newbury as well,god help us.

So is it just the females on Sky racing that 'do your head in' or females in general? The females on RUK are ok are they, the females in your daily life are ok, it is just the females on Sky racing? Or is it Sky Racing?

Only the ones on Sky Sports Racing,even all of my mates have said the same so its not just me.Racing UKs females seem to know what they are talking about and I can listen to their voices but not on Sky Sports.

What do they say that annoys you Tantpis?
Report tantpis January 4, 2022 7:04 PM GMT
It is just the sound of their voices when they are describing horses form etc,give me Lydia anytime for the pre race talk.Like I have mentioned it is not just myself,mates of myself have said the same,Well I suppose you get what you pay for Sky Racing is free on Sky.

Well tantpis i totally disagree

Alex hammond is one of the best male or female. She is very knowledgable always positive and happy with a lovely smile and without any of that nepotistic horsiness which i hate.

Hayley moore is top class too. Loses a few points for nepotism.

Gina is average i think she brings lots of nepotism

There are no subtitles on Sky Sports Racing, are there?

And as for Alex Hammond not benefiting from 'nepotism'!!!!!

After splitting from her first husband, trainer Micky Hammond, after an affair with champion jockey Tony McCoy, Alex, 34, went on to date trainer Richard Hannon Jnr. Alas, I can disclose that she has now parted from her second husband, jockey Richard Quinn, just 19 months after the couple tied the knot.

And that was 13 years ago. I've lost track since then.

Goodness me surely you don't mean Matt "Chapman"?    The most irritating of all without question.

i could not give a "monkeys" who the presenter/pundit is,there are only a couple who i would take much notice of anyway so just have the mute button on until the race starts.

its the pictures/camera work that's practically finished me taking much interest in the sport,the constant "close ups", panning in on the line(so you cannot see the placed horses) and a "head on" if we lucky, i'm convinced it's done purposely.

so iv'e gone from watching nearly every race run in the UK to virtually nothing,perhaps in the long term they have done me a massive favour.

if you still "punting" have a prosperous new year everyone, looking at the forum recently seems like a lot have also lost interest in the game for whatever reason.

I like Seb very good pundit, calls out jockeys giving poor rides.

Knot,agree with you about the TV angles,hated the Chepstow ones they showed and some of the Flat races shown were terrible could never see the horses not in shot making up ground,some of Kempton was poor.You do get good shots of the leaders jumping but do not see the ones out of shot.All I can say to you is good luck in the New Year.

Sparrow, he is annoying to yourself but others find him entertaining.Like my post about the Sky Racing female presenters,I cannot stand them but others like them.My wife loves to watch Strictly Dancing and I cant stand it,I suppose if we all liked the same things it would make life quite boring.

Screaming Apart from the Alex Hammond comment, that same page has an article about Jeffrey Epstein and "his chum Prince Andrew". Based on his age quoted that is a 2009 article as well.

My mrs aint interested in racing
Dont think many women are
Authorities have tried to get them in for years.... Fashion shows, ladies days, bands etc etc
Why cant we really be diverse
And have men only courses and meetings ?

Now that would be properly diverse in todays day and age

Not sure where you go racing irishone but every meeting I've been to there are plenty woman in attendance. All the ladies days at the Scottish tracks in normal times are sold out weeks in advance. Granted many will be there for the social side rather than the racing but to infere woman don't go racing is a nonsense imo
Report Celtic warrior January 6, 2022 12:19 PM GMT
One of the best things about racing is that it is inclusive for women. Going racing is about so much more than gambling itsca great social experience
