A Jockey Is Not Just for Xmas

The Cyberhorse Racehorse Outplacement Program was recently launched by Victorian Racing Minister Rob Hulls.

This program seeks to help retired racehorses make the transition to a life after racing and find them suitable homes and careers. Unlike most retired humans, this does not include looking after the grandchildren 24/7.

Obviously this is a fantastic idea that should be supported. In fact 2007 BMW Winner BLUTIGEROO is currently enjoying the sunshine, sipping tea and doing The Age Cryptic Crossword in our inner city courtyard garden as we speak.

This follows on from the very successful Greyhound Adoption Program which has been operating for a few years now. The most famous graduate of this program is of course, Santa's Little Helper from The Simpsons.

But that got us thinking.
Isn't it time for an Adopt A Jockey program?

Come Spring time these cute little cuddly fellas are always so popular. Everyone wants one or wants to look like one at the fancy dress Melbourne Cup BBQ. But you need to remember a jockey is not just for Spring Carnival.

At the end of every Cup Week unloved jockeys are often just left abandoned on the steps of the local TAB. Many have no idea how to fend for themselves in the real world, they have been trained to a harsh punishing routine of early morning track work, wasting away in saunas and BMWs before their 21st birthday.

So think about adopting a jockey. They are available in a wide range of silks / colour schemes so they can make a great garden feature. Jockeys are up bright and early every morning and can make themselves useful by bringing in the newspaper, or riding the dog in his morning gallop. Plus they eat barely anything, and can comfortably live on a diet of small bugs and leaves. Properly trained to follow instructions (unlike what occurs in race conditions), a jockey can be a welcome addition to any family home.


Caulfield Track Guide

We have finally got around to updating our Caulfield Track Guide.

Inside you will find our take on the race day experience at Caulfield.
If you look really closely you might even find some useful information on where to sit, where to eat and where to see the nice, pretty horsies.

View the full Caulfield Track Guide on the website.

Below are a few edited highlights :

What to Eat
The queues in the main part of the course can get quite long on Cup Day. If you head up towards the top of the straight, out the back of the course (past the Caulfield Tabaret and the administration block) to the Fashion Precinct, there is a wide array of good quality food, somewhere to seat and often no queues. Much better than lining for 20 mins for crusty hot dogs/ dim sims / chips.

Dress Code
In recent years Caulfield Cup day has been the big day out for the South Eastern suburbs and has attracted an extremely young crowd. Dress code is definitely Brief Court Appearances (i.e. the suit you wear to try and convince the judge you are not a hoon / thug after that night club brawl). Watch the sea of grey suits worn really badly and serious sunglasses with copious hair product on the guys. For girls it's normally something that was intended for a much warmer day, but trying to cover up the spring shiver is half the fun of the races. Funnily enough the public are often much better dressed than the members

Additional Notes

Police Photos - It is mandatory that if you and you friends see a policemen you need to pose in a group drunken photo with them. They expect it - and get quite offended when you don't ask. If you did a survey sure you would find the most photographed person on the course is not the international celebrity, nor the winning jockey or trainer, but the boys in blue out on the lawn.

Ambassadors -
Caulfield are very big on Ambassadors. They have the Classic Caulfield Style Ambassador, the David Jones Racewear Ambassador, Fashion Ambassadors and the Face of Caulfield. Last count there were more ambassadors than the United Nations. The Classic Caulfield Chinese Ambassador withdrew in protest of these human rights violations.

Carnival Precinct -
The Carnival Precinct is a brand new area where there are TABs, bars, food, and a performance stage just adjacent to the lawn area. It's a exciting innovative idea full of colour and movement. It's also what you do when you knocked down a lovely old red brick grandstand and you need something to fill in the building site till the function centre you want to build gets planning approval.

Last Week's Results

Crap Weather, Crap Racing and Mighty Fine Tips

We had a pretty good mid-week jaunt at Caulfield for Thousand Guineas Day. From 7 races (and losing a few selections to scratchings) we managed two winners on top - FASTER SON 1st W=$4.30, PREVENTABLE 1st W=$3.10 - and a nice value winner in the selections - 8-SPURCIFIC 1st W=$12.50.

Even better that value winner was our Best Rough of the Day in the Betting Portfolio, and we found the rather tasty $53.90 quinella in the selections.

BEST ROUGH : Race 3: 8-SPURCIFIC $2.50 EW 1st W=$12.50, P=$3.50 = $40

This Spring, we have found a winner almost every week in the Betting Portfolio, including a string of $10 plus winners.
