Yes- impressive. Looked a pretty short neck at that with the winner shaken up and AGH sitting quietly in fast time. Can't be long now for raceday.

The workout video is now up on the HRNZ website.

I wasn't on course either but I liked what I saw in the video! Very Happy

There was no video posted over the weekend and it is usually from this video that we get an earlier look at the workout, rather than waiting for the full results to be published on the Monday. Results are now up today (without any video so clearly no cameras were there on Saturday) and the result looks very good for Posie.

He ran second to the very good Mark Purdon horse Partyon which has had 5 starts for 5 wins – and Posie finished within a neck of the winner. Also of note is that fact that this workout had the fastest mile rate of the day.

I was not on course Saturday so cannot update you on any current plans for Posie but it is noted that he is not scheduled to race at Cambridge on Friday. The fields have just been released for Friday and Posie is not listed, but of course there is the possibility of nominating him for the grass track meeting at Rotorua on Sunday 15th or Thames on Saturday 21st January. We will just have to wait and see – keep an eye on the noms.

Any word from Bettor Pocket's trial this morning and future plans?

I did not attend, but the results were up within a short period of time in regard to the workout today by Bettors Pocket at Pukekohe today.
A good result when the first three horses finished with margins of a neck and a neck - and Posie was only a neck behind an Auckland Cup field horse.

Hi there Des- yes, all agreed re Bettors Pocket. Tony Herlihy spoke positively at the AGM as to his improvement and thinks another 2 to 4 wins are within his grasp.  Is going out for a spell now so look for him to return with some premier racing in mind later in the year- at Alex Park.
The Faithful looking to return in August with trial then racing late August. He is pleasing the stable with his laid back attitude and willingness.
Major Change- last chance coming up at Cambridge and an early retirement   is forecast unless he is sold prior.

Probably needs a new thread to cover all the meetings but too late in the night just now. Bed beckons.

A fine second last night when racing out of his class shows that he is improving all the time and now must rank up there with The Faithful for consistency, effort and even ability. Could someone please give a report on the various AGM 's for those of us who are geographically challenged.

Yeah, when Tony said ,Go Now Tony!" he wasn't talking to himself. Laughing Laughing

Great run in a race he wasn't nominated for initially.  We are still waiting for some reasonable numbers to nominate for a 2700metre event.  Only 3 were entered last week.

A great run by Bettors Pocket tonight. Next time, Tony Cameron should tell Tony Herlihy to give Bettors Pocket the trail up rather than Bettors Pocket giving the trail to his stablemate. That was the difference between first and second tonight. Bettors Pocket and The Faithful have to be the two most under rated horses running around Alexandra Park. Any updates on Ideal Belle?

There's a 2700m handicap pace scheduled at Alex Park on 15th July and another on 22nd July.
That's assuming that there are enough nominations for these races to go ahead.

Bettors Pocket had no chance given the speed of the final 800 off the front but although he was 4 and 5 wide he was timed at 56.2 for his own final 800m so is primed to win a similar standard race given a suitable barrier and a suitable run throughout the race. Considering the respective runs of Hank Bromac and Bettors Pocket in the past two races surely the trainer will choose to drive Bettors Pocket the next time that they clash. Major Change put in a very respectable trial yesterday without really getting clear in the final straight.

I suggest that members study the start . With special interest in Thomas McBride`s forward position on the front row, not unruly and also Hug the Wind`s walking start .Definitively stipes not on the job early in the race .
