Yay Bart - How did you go in the Cup?

It was great to see old Bart win another Cup. Did anyone back the winner?
I had a good crack at the 3rd horse, so I did okay - but it would have been REALLY BIG if it had won.

Well done !

Cool

Don't spend you millions all at once. Tongue out

#1 and I swapped a PM or two, and we both drew Non De Jeu in our respective sweeps - how weird and how unsuccessful  CryLaughing

Anxious wait for you Seansonrods Laughing

Great win for Bart (again!) and the young jockey!

Good one Lockie - some new lures maybe?

Tue, 2008-11-04 13:55

Dave - that would be bad news, especially if it has happened twice.

Did OK

Tue, 2008-11-04 14:10

Had $10 for a place on both 2nd and 3rd. Took home $143 for $36 invested (also had $10 on Master O'Reilly and a $6 shut the gate that wasn't even close).

 

Went out for lunch with work, so a win all round.

My better half had picked the winner for the last four years so I threw $10 bucks on view to win as she suggested and I'm one very pleased man today! Might have to put $100 on her suggestion next year!

If they are leading the race at the start, don't get excited because they will not win the race. You may as well tear up your ticket......

 

They do 2700m of cantering, the real race isn't until the last 500m.
