yeah, that'll work...

Racing NSW and the antiquated blokes in pork pie hats who think they run the show have introduced some great 'new' ideas into NSW racing.

Internet Betting Approved for NSW bookmakers

Racing NSW bowed to mounting pressure from the local bookmaking ranks by finally approving their long standing appllication to take bets via the internet on NSW racecourses or from an approved bookmaking office.

Too little, too late say the bagmen as other states still have a massive advantage over them with the range of markets they can offer.

And the best of all...


Racing NSW has also agreed to allow punters to bring laptop computers onto NSW racecourses subject to similar terms and conditions imposed on bookmakers.

These conditions, which must be agreed to by the racecourse and auditorium patrons, include the pre-requisite that such computers are dedicated units and must have Racing NSW monitoring software installed.

Punters may access only approved websites and only after making application to Racing NSW for approval to carry a laptop computer on course.

Approved laptops will be subject to an annual monitoring fee.


Who on earth is going to comply with such draconian and pointless regulations? And what's the difference between a laptop and an Iphone or Android phone these days anyway? Very little.

  4. So Racing NSW are now going to turn away professional punters from attending racetracks.

    Firstly they get rid of the high turnover bookies and now the high turnover punters.

    Are these clowns intent on inventing ways of how NOT to run a business.?

    How does V'Landys keep his job ?

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...

Last year's impressive winner who doesn't get the 3yo weight advantage this time. Won first up at Meydan in March but has run fourth, third, fourth in the big set weights staying races in England and Ireland, never quite making it as the next big staying star. While running close behind Stradivar…

hope for investors in the Centaur scandal?

In a breaking story, it has been reported that directors of the failed sports investment fund Centaur have had their assets frozen in order to repay investors. It is believed that managing director Keith Sobey skipped town trying to avoid prosecution however he either naively thought Ireland was a safe enough place to hide or had a lingering feeling of guilt and sat waiting for that knock on the door.

Sobey, the name behind Centaur (read the original story here), is believed to own four houses, worth more in total than the missing £1.6m. His willingness to sell them to repay investors is likely to keep the matter out of the courts, and at least one other director, Andrew Cork, will apparently follow suit.

All this adds weight to anecdotal evidence that the collapse of the fund came down to mismanagement rather than fraudulent deeds. As costs grew (why would you set up a training academy in central London?), margins evaporated and keeping the business afloat went through money like a…
