OK - I'll do them 1, 2, 3 …

We'll work out a prize - or just the honour of winning - you can put it in your name.
Okay I'll give 3 names then:

OK - all done:
No correspondence will be entered into.

My tips - 3 / 4 / 14 / 19
you have 4 horses and I have 2..Ok!
No - I only have 3 in Sweep - they are my tips for the race - the 4. I took them in a trifecta.
My bet Runaway (in the red top) was winning for most of the race but got too tired right after the last bend! Oh well, it was only $10.
So - it was 23/9/17.
Hope everyone had a great day.
Ours was very good - if unprofitable.
Who even won?
I didn’t pay any attention to it?
What was the top 3?
Wasn’t Marmelo second?
I didn’t bother putting a bet on this year.

We had a great day, albeit winning nought. My outsider came 7th and the others are still running …
Felt sorry for the horse who died. BUT - it wasn't this race - just racing. Horses put tremendous weight/power on that foot that hits the ground first - tons of weight - like a fast bowler - and thus can suffer damage.
Once a shoulder goes its almost impossible to fix it - thus they euthanise them. You might be able to fix a lower leg break - but even this is very hard and may break again.
How much was cross counter paying to win beforehand. Was that an Aussie horse? @S J
I don’t like watching the horses get whipped hard either. Must be very painful.
@Rabbits 21 the one that died - no Irish - Cliffs of Mohr.
I feel the winner was overwhipped at the end.
I think the odds were good - he wasn't favourite but was backed strongly. So maybe 10s ?
Close I watched a video and it was around the $12 mark.
