Turf Deli Spring Racing Carnival - Caulfield Guineas 2002 Preview
Caulfield Guineas  2004 - Preview - It's Time 09/10/2004

Seeing the election is looming it might be a good time to reflect on the major parties and how their policies address the issues that affect punters.

- Neither party has offered rebates to Ease The Squeeze on punters of the rising costs of race books (Why does paper and ink suddenly rise in cost every Spring Carnival ??)

- Labor have promoted the literacy program to assist young punters in reading the form guide where every adult is encouraged to read out the form for the cups double to their youngsters to make sure they learn their ABCs, and also their TDW's (won at track) (won at distance) (won in wet)

- The Liberals are maintaining their policy of mandatory detention for all international raiders. All prospective entrants are to be interned at Sandown until they are deemed not to be a threat of actually winning any of the races they contest (they are there mainly to provide amusing stories about their erratic behaviour on the evening news).

- The Labor policy of Trifecta-CareGold is particularly popular with the over 75's promising them instant access without annoying delays to phone betting, and to jump the tote window queues on track.

- The Democrats are the only party campaigning to legislate to protect the All Greys race.

Handy Election Day Hint : Remember to keep your betting slips and your election slips separate. Mixing them up can have disastrous results - you might end up backing Elvstroem in the Senate (otherwise know as the donkey vote) and the Greens over the unsuitable 1200M sprint journey.
