Turf Deli Spring Racing Carnival - Stakes Day 2000 Preview
Stakes Day 2000 - Preview - Gorilla's Rule 11/11/00

And so we drag our weary bodies on Stakes Day, the final day of Cup Week. Which, as per usual means we are far too weary and grubby (with black ink from 3 days worth of form guides smothered over face and body) to come up with anything new, so apologies once again for re hashing old stuff.

Stakes Day is great cause it marks the return of the seasoned punter. You will see them returning triumphant, crawling out of nooks and crannies, frowning and blinking at the sunshine to reclaim their patch of turf from the black suited shaved head sun glassed brigade (which someone this week likened to a plague of aggressive stick insects). Actually, its amazing how young the crowd at Oaks Day has got - its like an under age night club these days (that might just be Grandpa Turf Deli having a whinge).

Of course, there have been record crowds all this week. The breakdown of Cup figures has just come through :

Crowd Breakdown :
2500 nuns (up 210 on last year)
534 gorillas (up 340 on last year)
1029 fairys,
23 guys in drag,
324 arabs,
25 Two Person Horse Costumes,
39 Bumble Bees.

The VRC were particularly pleased, especially with the strong upturn in gorilla related activity, a niche section of the market with strong spending potential.

Actually, this week we would like to point out the new banking alternative - the TAB phone account.

- You get secure card access to your funds at any time and location (depending on where the newest Pub TAB is)

- there are no account fees, and even though there is no interest, Turf Deli’s betting portfolio pays much better rates. There are also no government fees on deposits / withdrawals - you do not need to wait in queues and get friendly, over the counter service - with no hard sell on trying to flog you home loans or internet banking

- you can make your money work for you anytime of the day
