Introducing - the Brunch Quaddie

We thought the TAB missed a great marketing opportunity with the introduction of the "Early Quaddie" earlier on this year.

It is not a very inspiring name.

We could have had the Early Quaddie, the Late Quaddie, and the Late, Late Quaddie.

Or the Goldilocks Quaddie, named after the process punters go through every week

- This Quaddie is Too Small
- This Quaddie is Too Big
- but This Quaddie is Just Right...

The TAB have been concerned about the downturn in retail wagering with more people betting online at home and on mobile devices.

Don't suppose it would have anything to do with most TABs these days being PubTABs? It can get kinda hard to get the attention of the one person pulling beers, wiping the bar, serving up a happy hour chicken parmigiana and manning three terminals at the same time.

But, just imagine if they had called it the Brunch Quaddie.

Immediately there would have been long queues of eager inner city Melbournians lining up around the block for an over priced not quite breakfast and not quite lunch experience.

Utter the word Brunch and they will come. Problem solved.

Last Week's Results

Grovelling Apologies

Following on from the grovelling apologies of our Federal Treasurer, we really feel the need to apologise for the main race form analysis from last week. It was really poor!

Searching high and low for an on pace and WFA proven selection, we totally overlooked the dead set obvious runner, and double figure winner STAR ROLLING 1st W=$11.30 - and in fact we even made it the One To Risk.

Talk about missing the bleeding obvious.

The rest of the tips just dawdled, though the Best Bet of the Day got home, Race 2: 1-BAGMAN 1st W=$2.60 so the Betting Portfolio got back most of its money

2014 Spring Campaign: 1 week - 0 profits - 1 returns - 0 wipe outs - Net: -$24

Cleverly Disguised Ads


It is great that in this modern age you can lazily access any bit of information almost immediately online.

But there is only one website that is prepared to put in a special effort. Go that extra yard. Delve into the climate controlled historical archives (also known as the garage) and pull out the Racing Archives.

Every week this spring we will be featuring a little bit of hard copy history from the Racing Archives.


With VINTAGE CROP passing away a few weeks back, here are the results for the 1993 Melbourne Cup.

VINTAGE CROP won at 14-1, TE-AKU NICK ran 2nd at 160-1 and MERCATOR ran 3rd at 125-1.

What a wipe out! Trifecta paid unders at $55,893. There was no flexi betting in those days to help you out. And you won't find this results grid online anywhere - just in the garage.
