Moonee Valley Track Guide

We have finally got around to updating our Moonee Valley Track Guide.

Inside you will find our take on the race day experience at Moonee Valley.

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 Moonee Valley Track Guide on the website.

Below are a few edited highlights :

The big attraction of Moonee Valley is that it's small size means that if you are out on the lawn then you are really close to the equine action. Watch out for flying discarded horseshoes and being accidentally whipped by the jockey if they come wide in the feature race. Even in the grandstand you have the amphitheatre sensation, you can really free the crowd roar, and you can get a clear and close up view of the racing action which is lacking at many of the other courses.

Dress Code

Cox Plate Day - The WFA championship of Australia is definitely not as dressy as Caulfield Cup Day or Derby Day. There is still plenty of denim in the Betting Ring, and the lawn is more a cosy day out with friends feel rather than a dress to impress fashion parade.

Night Racing - Again you can be more casual, especially on a hot, streamy summers night. In fact, cause it's late at night you can just wear your pyjamas so when you get home you can grab a cup of milk and milo and head straight to bed.

Additional Notes

Hedge Horses- These are really impressive. Inside the main gates are five expertly sculptured hedges in the form of horse and jockey. Apparently these have taken years to grow in a precisely controlled environment. Fairly sure they are not native to Australia, normally only see footy speccy marks growing naturally in the bush. Either that or they have managed to get Edward Scissorhands on contract. How long will they last when some drunken hoon decides to ride them after Cox Plate Day ? We will see.

Night Meetings- The best part of going to a night meeting is driving up the ramp into the centre car park into the full bank of grandstand lights. It is a truly mystical experience and something that every punter should experience. Many punters have said they received their calling to a lifetime dedicated to the punt at this very moment.

Redevelopment Plans- Like most of the major race tracks Moonee Valley has grand development plans. Moonee Valley's are bigger than most, they actually involve demolishing the entire race course and building it again in slightly different shade of beige and facing in a different direction so they can get the afternoon sun. Master trainer Bart Cummings has gone on record as saying it's a utter waste of money, personally we reckon they should think outside the square a little and make the first racecourse / theme park - Bart World.

Last Week's Results

Soggy Day, Soggy Tips

We got off to a pretty good start at Caulfield last week, before sinking to our knees in the mud in the later part of the program.

We managed to find 5 of the first 6 winners in the selections, most at backable odds - ALOTTA SPUR 1st W=$4.80, MR CHARD 1st W=$5.80, DIZLAGO 1st W=$8.70, RETRIEVE 1st W=$2.00, ROTHERA 1st W=$8.00. Even better we started off on a roll boxing up the first 3 quinellas as well, Race 1 : $12.70, Race 2 : $7.00 and a juicy Race 3 : $41.90.

Tried as we could we could not find the Caulfield Cup winner, however, we did our best to give a critical and analytical review of each horse's chance in our feature race form guide. Here are some examples - carefully edited of course to make them look uncannily accurate.

15-DESCARADO - No weight, competitive in 3YO staying classics ticks a lot of boxes into this race...From wide barrier will probably go forward - and can actually see this one sticking on pretty well on the speed as others have done in previous years... No weight, form is OK, 4YO - probably a rough chance, prefer a solid place chance though. Definitely put him in your trifectas and first fours

6-HARRIS TWEED - Drawn a nice barrier, will sit just on the speed, and put himself into this race. Looks the stand out best rough chance in this - you just have to respect last start winners in this race.

1-SHOCKING - Caulfield is a bit of a problem though, he just doesn't seem to go quite as well here, ... he seems to take a little longer to hit top gear in the straight and normally by the time he lets down something has pinched a winning break

17-FAINT PERFUME - There is a lot of money coming for her, but just can't get enthused about this one. Suspect she is going to start really poor value though, cause of the Bart factor, and her previous form - on her form this time in she should really be $20 or better. Place at very best

The Betting Portfolio bombed out again, so that's 11 weeks, 7 profits, 2 returns and 2 wipe outs. Let's hope we can stagger across the finishing line with our heads still in front.

We hear about Fat Finger errors in the stock market world, when someone makes a typo like making a number a billion instead of a million.

Here we place an imaginary exorbitant amount of money on a sure fire good thing.

Cause why should stock traders have all the mis-keying Fat Finger Fun ?.

$200 million on the nose thanks

(oops meant $200 - finger got stuck - can we just cancel the bet after the race if it doesn't win?)

Current Losses only a measly $3 million - peanuts
