It gets me why states have public holidays for horse races (ie SA & Vic) - surely they could just have these type of races on weekends. :arrow:

Would you prefer to work 365 days a year? Public holidays on religious grounds is even more silly if you think about it.
Great day, just enjoy it. :)

I don't see any shame in taking advantage of the brainwashed initiatives. We're already going to hell, they are destined for heaven, so everyone's a winner.

A day off for a horse race is pretty silly.

On the other side of the argument though, get rid of the Adelaide Cup holiday and give us Melbourne Cup off instead. Yesterday afternoon was a write off and can't see me achieving much today either.

I enjoy any day off as I work hard for my keep. I really don't care who or what its in aid of and last I checked, Australia's economy hasn't crashed as a result of a handful of public holidays.
The ones who seem to whinge most about public holidays are the mega rich big business owners and people who are just generally whingers about anything.

Boxed the trifecta 8)

Not as big a payout as previous years, but a handy win nonetheless

Is that all? I thought by now you would have advanced to First four's - pays much better more often than not.

Now its just whether a new car, new Harley or another Euro holiday. Hmmmm..........

I'm surprised GIAE hasn't gone on about the fact that pom horses trifecta'd the race!

Lucky they are invited, bred and trained for longer distances - still took a SA rider to do the job. :wink:

Didn't realise we got the trifecta.I put a bet on my son, picked the wrong English horse.

Put a bet on for myself, picked the wrong Godolfin horse.

Made it back with 'The Getting Ball' finally someone thing good came from that.
