Gelding’s red hot tips for Pakenham races on 9 December 2017

The Gelding’s attention turns to the provincial track at Pakenham today with the running of the Pakenham Cup. More rain during the week, makes for a tricky and difficult race meeting to pick winners. That being said, the Gelding thinks he has some tips that he hopes will give a return to punters today.

As always the bets are on an each way and all up basis.

Pakenham

Race 3 Horse 7 – Fontein Lad (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 5 Horse 1 – Jungle Edge
Race 6 Horse 11 – Silvera
Race 7 Horse 2 – Grey Lion (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 8 Horse 1 – Burning Front

Good luck and good punting!

Weekend musing – records fall at Racing.com Park and possible strike by AFL players……

Sfan OB6pakenhamIt was interesting reviewing the results from the stand alone meeting at Racing.com Park last Saturday afternoon. I know the complex has not been open for all that long, but six track records were broken on the day, with the 1400m record broken twice. It does reflect the calibre of horses that were in attendance for a stand alone Saturday meeting, but six records in one day must be some sort of a record in itself!

The dialogue between the AFL and the Players’ Association seems aflplayersto be ramping up at the moment and while no one wants to see a strike, I must say I would not blame the players if they took industrial action. In most sporting competitions in the world the players get a percentage of the revenue so why should the AFL be any different?

I also think the AFL has to be careful with figures coming out advising that soccer is the biggest participation sport in Australia, some of our brightest stars may choose to stick with the world game.

A quiet week this week but a good one.

Have a great weekend!
