Breeders' Cup Betting - Horse Racing Betting Bet Online ...

Does anyone know of an online bookmaker who will lay bets on the Breeders Cup races now?

Tried to have a bet on the Classic earlier today, but deposited only to be restricted to £7, with the price halved immediately afterwards. Would obviously like to have a much bigger bet, so does anyone have any ideas? I've tried some, but want to shop around for the best price, so as many ideas as possible would be great. Thanks!

Win: Authentic +125

Right now, it’s difficult seeing any contender out running Authentic to the first turn. Swiss Skydiver has enough speed to do it. But if the filly goes after Authentic before the first turn, her jockey could compromise her chances to win.
Once Authentic gets the lead, he’s almost impossible to run down. Since no horse entered, including Thousands Words if he goes, should push Authentic early, the Derby winner looks like a lock.

Place: Swiss Skydiver +1400

The Kenny McPeek trained daughter of Daredevil and Exo Gold was right there in the Kentucky Oaks. If not for the best performance of Shedaresthedevil’s life, Swiss Skydiver would have run by and won the Oaks. She’s a talented enough filly to win the Preakness. She should also be a length or two off Authentic.
If the Derby winner isn’t at the top of his game on Saturday, she’s the likeliest winner. One advantage? She’s much smaller than the boys, which means her jockey should have no trouble getting her through traffic if it’s required.

Show: Art Collector +350

Trained by Thomas Drury Jr., Art Collector has enough speed to stay close to Authentic as well. He hasn’t raced against a field nearly as good as this yet, but he has won five races in a row. If he can stick with Authentic early, Art Collector may have a shot.
The problem? We know Authentic will fight in the stretch. We also know Swiss Skydiver will give it her all. We’re not one-hundred percent positive Art Collector won’t give up if things get tough.

Fourth: Ny Traffic +1800

The second-place finisher in the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational over the summer was out of his element in the Kentucky Derby. Traffic runs most effectively when he’s near the lead. But Authentic got the first quarter at Churchill Downs in less than 23 seconds. It’s tough to go all in so early in a 1 ¼ mile race. The Preakness is at 1 3/16ths, though. So, whomever is on NYT’s back, the jockey should gun it from the outset to stay no more than a length behind Authentic.

Betta Setup Plan & Questions

Hello everyone! My girlfriend and I have decided to try our hands at a simple, fairly low-tech planted tank for a yet-to-be-purchased friend.
Disclaimer: this is a long-winded post. Please skip down to Questions if you don’t want to read a bunch, but do have some quick advice!
I have tried to be thorough in my research, utilizing as many resources as I could find: published species profiles, hobbyist articles, customer reviews, forum threads, and of course this sub and respective Wiki. We made a list of what I think is everything we need to get this show on the road. It's a mix of my research finds and Amazon recommendations, so it may need adjustment. Please point out anything we should tweak, products to avoid, etc.

The List

I understand we will need to get the plants and water right before adding a resident, but probably still need some clarification. At this point, this is my understanding of the required process at hand:
Below I have a list of related questions I could not find direct answers to when doing my homework, including how I may need to alter the steps above.


Any help is appreciated! Thank you all in advance for helping us do this the right way, and we look forward to any feedback.

[Tales From the Terran Republic] Jon Pulls a Fast One and Shelia Strikes it Rich

The rest of the series can be found here
“Jon-Jon! Oh I was sooo worried about you!” A stocky Polynesian woman with a streak of gray in her hair cried as she threw herself on him kissing him repeatedly on the head. The nurse who escorted her smiled and left, closing the door.
“Jon-Jon?” Jon asked with a laugh.
“I’m one of your lovers darling! I rushed here all the way from Nakamura when I heard you got a little boo-boo!” she exclaimed as she laid another big kiss on his face. “Damn, it’s good to see you again Jon,” she said with a toothy smile.
“Same here, Oliana. How have you been?”
“Doing great! I signed on with Greyweather Consulting and business has been good!”
“Still can’t believe you went and became a merc,” Jon said shaking his head. “What about all that talk of settling down and becoming a real nurse?”
“Yeah… I tried that. Fuck that noise! I lasted all of four months before I had to walk. So much bullshit! Couldn’t do anything without asking some asshole for permission. With Greyweather I can actually do shit, actually save lives instead of standing in front of a computer screen with my thumb up my ass.”
“Well I for one am very happy the nasty rumors I heard about you were true,” Jon smiled. “So, you got it?”
“Of course sweetie,” Oliana said as she opened the huge box of chocolates tucked under her arm and lifted off the top tray revealing a med-scanner, vials of an evil looking green liquid, some syringes, and other devices. “And I got you the good stuff. It even isn’t expired yet!”
“Is that greenweaver?” Jon asked in surprise. “That’s restricted...”
“Well you said you were in a hurry, darling, and this is hurry in a bottle. Roll over and let me peek at that cute backside of yours.”
With a pained grunt Jon rolled over on his side. Oliana pulled out the scanner and carefully surveyed the damage.
“Tsk… Civilians...” She said.
“What? Did they screw something up?” Jon asked in alarm.
“Nah, it’s fine, perfectly textbook for a civilian surgeon. They let the goddamn bots do the work. Perfectly safe, lazy, and exactly why your ass was going to be laying here for quite awhile. Don’t get me started… Yup. We can work with this,” she said as she pulled a thin plastic pad from the chocolate box and carefully slid it underneath his vitals monitor.
“There, now they will be none the wiser,” she said with a smile. “Your real vitals are about to do some freaky shit.”
“Oh I’m down with the freaky shit.”
“Not like this you aren’t,” she laughed as she pulled up his gown and drew a measure of the green liquid into the first syringe. “Ever had this stuff in your spine before?”
“It might sting a little. Seriously. This is going to hurt.”
“Do I need something to bite on?”
“Won’t help,” Oliana said as she pulled out some combat auto-injectors
“Shit. Are you going to heal me or shoot me?”
“They will prevent you from going into shock. Yeah, it’s going to be that bad, Jon. You sure you want to do this?”
Jon just smiled at her as he reached for the first auto-injector...
“You’re tough. I’ll give you that,” Oliana said about an hour later. “That’s all we can do for now. We wait for two hours and then we start the second course.”
“Can’t wait,” Jon said grimly looking quite pale and haggard.
There was a beeping noise.
“What’s that?” Jon asked with a little concern.
“My lookout just picked up a nurse saying that she was going to check on you,” Oliana said as she covered up the box. “She thinks you’re cute by the way.”
The door opened and the nurse walked in.
“It’s time for your morning meds,” she said with a big smile and then paused. “Are you feeling ok?”
“Oh yeah, just fine,” Jon said with a pleasant even smile. “Just got a rather unpleasant e-mail, that’s all. Sorry, can’t talk about it. Classified. I don’t mean to be short but I really need to get back to it,” he said weakly raising up his tablet.
Everything doesn’t look fine, she thought as she pulled up his vitals on her work tablet. Everything was well within normal ranges though. That must have been one hell of an e-mail. “Ok, here,” the nurse said handing him a little polymer cup and a glass of water. It took all the willpower he had to move his arms but he took them with a smile.
“Appreciate it,” Jon said forcing another smile. When Oliana said it was going to hurt she wasn’t fucking kidding.
As soon as the nurse left Jon just sagged into the bed. “How long is this hell going to last?”
“No more than a couple of days… tops.”
“Are you fucking with me right now?”
“I really wish I was.”
Timing her work around visits from an entirely overly inquisitive nurse, damn her good instincts, Oliana finally finished up the third and final series.
“There. You still with me Jon?”
“Define ‘with you’?” he laughed weakly. “Now what?”
“Now you suffer for awhile,” she said as she pulled out a tablet and carefully examined his real, actual vital signs.
“I’m going to hang out for a bit to see how these first few hours go but then I have to bail. I would rather not go to prison. I would for you in a heartbeat, honey, but not if I can avoid it.”
“No. Don’t risk yourself over this. Go now.”
“Not until I see how this is going to turn out. These civilian twerps don’t know about this shit and if anything goes wrong they are going to need me. Don’t worry your pretty little butt,” she said giving it a little pat. “Everything goes well and I will be able to get away long before they figure out what I did.”
“I feel like a shit not asking this until now,” Jon said as he clenched his teeth, “but how are you going to get away?”
“Sweetie, I’m with fucking Greyweather. Just give us a good half hour before you peel off that sensor and I’ll be halfway to a waiting ship and when they pull up their security feeds it will be like I was never even here.” she said with a smile.
“Nice,” Jon said as he convulsed. Oliana jumped up with her scanner.
“Shit. Don’t scare me like that!” She exclaimed.
“Don’t scare you?!? What the fuck was that?!?”
“Just some nerves coming back online. No biggie.”
“If that’s no biggie, what’s a biggie like.”
“Let’s just hope you don’t find out.”
“Jon, that’s the last injector I can give you,” Oliana said gravely about two hours later. “It’s about to really get rough.”
“Oh... that doesn’t sound good.” Jon mumbled.
“On the bright side,” she said stroking his face, “It looks like everything took. They should be able to take it from here or at least have time to call someone.”
“You’re... gonna split?”
“Yeah, all they have to do now is monitor you and give you real neural stabilizers and maybe a pain blocker or two. They might try to tell you that you need to go into a medical coma but that’s bullshit.”
“I’ll… bear that… in mind...”
“Try to give me at least a few minutes before you separate that sensor from that little pad,” she said as she kissed his forehead. “But if you feel like you are going to pass out, be sure yank the fucker off before you do. I might not look like it but I can still haul ass… or take down a security guard if I have to.”
“All this affection is… completely inappropriate…”
“Not anymore it isn’t,” she said as she planted a big kiss on his lips. “Whatever it is you are about to do, kick some ass.”
“… intend to...” he said with a smile. “Now go. You will… get that half… hour...”
“If you need me, you know where to find me,” she said as she got to her feet. “And remember, Greyweather Consulting is the Republic’s premier provider of private strategic, tactical, security, and intelligence services. ‘If you want to cry havoc, call Greyweather.’… And we are all loyal to the Republic for what it’s worth. Don’t know what you are neck deep in but keep us in mind.”
With that she blew him a kiss and walked out the door.
About half an hour later the nurse on duty walked in.
“It seems like your sensor fell off. Oh, there it is,” she said as she picked the sensor out of the sheet and pressed it to his skin.
Her tablet started beeping immediately. She looked down at it in shock.
“That can’t be right...” She said.
She trotted out of the room and quickly returned with a full medical scanner in her hands.
“What? This can’t be…” She looked down at her scanner and then back up at Jon. He should be screaming in agony. Why is he just smiling at me? she thought and then she recalled the conversations between him and the doctor and put two and two together.
“What did you do? What did she give you?” she demanded.
“What... do you think?” Jon mumbled with a grin.
She turned red in the face and screamed “IDIOT!!!” at him and sprinted out of the room.
About fifteen minutes later the door opened and an old kalesh with a white robe draped around him walked in.
“Ok, you crazy bastard,” he said wiggling his eyestalks, “What are you on? What did she give you?”
“Holy shit. That stuff actually exists?” the old kalesh said as he pulled out a scanner and gently rolled Jon over on his side.”
“I can imagine,” the old doctor said as he looked at he scans. “Fuck, right into the spine too. How the are you even conscious? Hell, why didn’t you go into shock?”
Jon just smiled and reached under his pillow retrieving a handful of combat auto-injectors.
“You crazy stupid fucker! Well, I guess it isn’t crazy if it worked, huh?” He rolled Jon back over. “Oh, I’m Doctor Balken, formerly Major Balken by the way, Republic Army, and I’m going to be taking over your case. So, you have a gallon of greenweaver in your back and more injectors in your blood stream than I’ve ever seen before,” he wiggled his eyestalks, “This is going to be fun!”
He looked at his scanner again.
“Now I have a couple of questions for ya,” the doctor said, “This sort of black-magic voodoo was nothing but a wet dream back when I was in the service. Hell, it’s still nothing but a wet dream for most of us. Considering your… creative method in obtaining it I take it you want to keep this quiet or can I just call in the experts and be done with it?”
“Figured. Ok, next question. Is there a very and I mean very good reason for what you are doing?”
“yes… critical…Republic...”
“Good enough for me,” He said with an eye wiggle. “Ok, ambassador, let’s do this. I’ll do some quick research and make a few discreet phone calls but it looks like what you really need is a top-shelf neural stabilizer and probably something for what I can only assume are truly biblical levels of pain. You also have a brain-curdlingly high temperature but I don’t want to screw with anything metabolism related until I actually know more about whatever the hell I’m dealing with here. We will just have to go old school, very old school. We will get started with that and the we’ll do… something… about all that combat gunk in your bloodstream.”
He wiggled his eyestalks.
“Now I will leave you to your well deserved suffering,” He laughed as he left.
Moments later he heard the head nurse exclaim “Ice?!?” from down the hall.
Back on the White Star Helena had finally gotten around to talking to the passengers. She was quite relieved to see how well they were being treated.
“So are you one of them, too?” Rupert Glent asked Helena eyeing Roberts nervously.
“Me, nah,” Helena replied. “I’m just a reporter that sweet talked herself into one hell of an exclusive. I had absolutely no idea the cute guy I picked up at the bar was a fucking pirate,” she said as she poked Roberts playfully. “My ability to pick ‘em remains as fucked as ever.”
Rupert’s wife gave her a dirty look. “Please watch your language,” she said icily. “There are children here.”
“Oh shit,” Helena replied. “Sorry.”
She couldn’t see Roberts snickering behind her.
“So, how have you been treated?” Helena asked them as she switched on her camera.
“Just awful!” Rupert’s wife exclaimed. “We have to sleep on these rags and they just feed us cheap cereal and junk food!”
Rupert just winced. “Ms. Helena, I think it would be far more interesting for your readers if-”
“Oh that sounds awful!” Helena gushed zooming in on his wife. “Imagine! Making you have to sleep on just a simple mattress with nothing but blankets and pillows… those animals!”
“And that isn’t the worst part!” she moaned. “All we get to drink is water, cheap sodas, and that awful synth-milk! My poor children!”
“Jesus...” Helena said in a shocked voice managing to keep a straight face.
“And the bread… It wasn’t fresh! It was at least a day or two old and I don’t know what ‘baloney’ is or what it’s made from is but it is simply-”
“It’s made of lips and assholes.” Helena said artfully angling the camera to accentuate the woman’s expressions. “Actually it’s all the parts of left over… whatever animal they got their hands on that week ground up into a pink paste and squeezed into a plastic tube.”
“Oh God!”
“Um, darling...” Rupert said giving Helena an evil glance.
“And that so called ‘cheese’… It is horrific! Each slice is wrapped in… wrapped in plastic!” she wailed. “I had to feed my children that!”
“And did you like it?” Helena asked panning over to the kids.
“Oh yes!” Rupert’s daughter exclaimed. “Baloney and cheese is awesome!”
Helena grinned at the kid. If she was anymore photogenic the camera would burst into flames.
“It is clear that you have truly suffered,” Helena said with big sympathetic eyes as she turned the camera back to Rupert’s wife. “It’s important that I document everything so the Federation, no, the entire galaxy knows what sort of savages these people are. What… what else have you had to endure?”
As his wife started to reply Rupert lunged forward putting himself between the camera and his lovely wife.
“So, Helena was it?” Rupert asked, “Do you have any idea what they are going to do to us?”
“I’m not sure to be perfectly honest,” Helena replied glancing uncertainly over at Roberts. “But I’ve kinda gotten to know their boss and she said you would survive this if you behaved. She seems to be the kind of woman who keeps her word… Right?” she asked looking over at Roberts.
“Right,” he replied. “If we were going to kill you we would have done it right off and not bothered with having to guard you and feed you cheap cold cuts and cereal,” he smiled. “Current plan is that we get you off this ship and back to civilization ass intact.”
“Well, that’s a relief.” Rupert replied although he knew that if they were going to massacre them this guy certainly wouldn’t tell him about it.
“So, Rupert,” Helena said with a wicked smile as she made sure to frame his face perfectly, “what sort of money-grubbing porkie slime bullshit do you do when you aren’t cruising around space on a ship full of pedophiles and rapists?” Helena asked focusing the camera on him.
“Hey! I had no idea about that! I just knew the White Star was the best and I just wanted to take my family on a wonderful vacation, that’s all! All I knew was that this thing was supposed to be fantastic and that we were going to get to see a neutron star up close! I had no idea something like… like that was going on!”
“Lucky for you neither did we,” Roberts said with a cruel smile. “Because if we had our tactics might have been a little different, like you not having to endure bologna, fake cheese and Comet Soda different.”
Rupert flinched. Looking into Roberts’ eyes he had no doubt that he was telling the God’s honest truth.
“I only found out about it once our plan was already set and it was too late to make any 'adjustments',” Paul continued, “If we did know about it before hand, there would have definitely been 'adjustments'. Count on it. Be sure to let Axion Lines know how much you appreciate them almost making your family’s vacation especially ‘memorable’.”
“I intend to,” Rupert said with a snarl. “Trust me. I fucking intend to.”
“Darling! Language!” his wife exclaimed holding her hands over her daughters ears.
“He said ‘fuck’ mommy!” she giggled. “What does ‘fuck’ mean?” she asked just giggling her ass off.
“Stop it! It’s a bad word! Don’t ever say it!”
“But daddy just did!” the child exclaimed looking at everybody with triumphant wicked eyes.
“Your mommy, daddy and everybody else in this fucking room are very fucking lucky you are so fucking adorable,” Roberts said as he knelt down to face the girl. “And the word ‘fuck’ is a great word! All us pirates use it!” he said with a big friendly smile.
“Fuck!” the girl exclaimed.
“There you go! Now you sound just like a pirate!” Roberts laughed. “You have a lovely child,” he said to Rupert. “Try not to oink at her too much. It would be a real shame if she grew up to be like her... Wait… hang on...” Roberts said as he cupped his earpiece.
“Got it. We’re on our way!” He replied to the air. “Helena we gotta cut this short. The guys just found something unbelievable!”
“Wait!” Rupert’s wife called out. “Could you please talk to that leader of yours about what they are feeding us?”
“Heh… sure.” Roberts grinned.
“Paul, no.” Helena said playfully punching his arm.
“Killjoy,” Roberts replied with a laugh. “So kid,” Roberts said to the little girl. “What’s your favorite cereal?”
“Bunny Crunch!”
“Got it. I’ll put the word out that you get the Bunny Crunch,” he said to her as her mother looked on in horror.
“Bunny Crunch is awesome!” Helena replied. “You just gotta try it on ice cream!”
The girl looked up at Helena with wide eyes. Her mind had just officially been blown.
As they were heading to the bank Jessie came scampering up at a full sprint with a huge scientific scanner in her grip.
“(gasp) I just got relieved by T (gasp)! Can you fucking (gasp) believe it?”
“No. It’s-… and she’s gone,” Roberts replied to the back of Jessie as she tore off again.
Roberts just smiled and shook his head.
“What did they find?” Helena asked excitedly.
“We aren’t entirely sure yet,” Roberts replied calmly. “But if we’re right… Well it’s probably best if you just see it. It’s amazing!”
Everyone was just silently gathered inside a cluttered storage chamber looking down at something.
They were all packed so tightly Helena couldn’t see.
“Well?” Shelia asked excitedly.
“Give me a minute, geez!” Jessie said as she wrestled with an almost comically oversized scanner.
Helena finally managed to wiggle around them camera in hand only to find them all huddled around some boxes filled with rows of little vials filled with a white liquid.
“It’s confirmed! Semen!” Jessie almost screamed. “Perfectly chemically stabilized! I bet you could do in vitro straight out of the tube!”
“It’s… cum...” Helena said in a less than enthusiastic manner.
“Yeah, just look at it!” Shelia said excitedly. “Rows and rows of the money shot!”
“Cum… You drug me all the way over here for cum...”
“Do we have an id?” Gloria asked sounding like an actual human being and an excited one at that.
“Cum. You guys are excited about cum...”
“Working on it,” Jessie chirped. “So, Bunny, what is it?”
“While you have saved an amazing amount of data concerning ejaculate,” Bunny replied. “None of the images or movies capture it in sufficient detail for me to make any scientific comparison.”
“(sigh) The archive, Bunny! What do we have in the archive?”
“Surprisingly enough,” Bunny snarked, “we don’t have a whole lot in the way of semen related information. We dived deep but not that deep. (Thank God.)”
“Well you have to have genetic profiles of shit on file,” Shelia said.
“Cum… You made me sprint across the ship for some cum...” Helena muttered. “I had the queen of the porkies in my fucking sights and I let her go over cum...”
Nobody was paying her any attention, not even Roberts.
“Son of a bitch!” Eno shouted from further inside as he pulled out a glass covered frame. “Look!” he held as he held aloft a collection of butterflies. “And there’s more! Oh Mother of God!… Are these… bees?”
“Cum and dead bugs… of course…" Helena grumbled. "We have works from Leonardo da motherfukcing Vinci in the hold and nobody blinks an eye. A vault full of jizz and dead bugs and they lose their fucking minds...”
“Well can you scan the DNA or not, goddammit?” Shelia shouted at Jessie’s tablet.
“Yes and no,” Bunny replied. “With that stupid scanner that Jessie insisted on dragging along we can definitely image the DNA and I’m going through everything we have but so far I haven’t found much on genetic sequences of various species. It’s not what we usually go for, you know.”
“In all of those petabytes you don’t have a goddamn thing? Bullshit.” Shelia said impatiently.
“We have a lot of petabytes and I mean a lot of them,” Bunny replied. “It’s going to take awhile.”
“Cum… Seriously?” Helena muttered to nobody in particular.
“You’re in a fucking quantum supercomputer now. How long can it possibly take?” Shelia responded.
“Oh just the read times of the same old drives we always had. Jessie didn’t think it was important to migrate all that ‘old archival shit’.”
“Hey! Don’t blame this on me!” Jessie laughed.
“Who else is there to blame?” Bunny responded. “I’m just a fucking machine. I don’t do anything unless I’m told to.”
“You don’t do anything unless you are told to!?! Oh that is a steaming pants-load and you know it!” Jessie excliamed as she gripped her tablet in both hands and stared straight into the camera.
“Hey!” Shelia barked snapping her fingers. “Focus you two! Can we do it and how long will it take?”
“Yes we can and I have absolutely no idea how long it will take,” Bunny replied.
“Ditto,” Jessie chirped. “No fucking clue. We may have to wait until we are back in the Republic and hit the networks. I’m not sure if we have a lot of genetic stuff.”
“You have absolutely everything else! How can you not have… Whatever. Bunny, start digging. Jessie start scanning. I want to get these back in the cases and out of the light ASAP.”
“Cum… Honestly?”
“My God!” Jessie bubbled happily as she opened another box. “Look at all these vials! There’s so much!”
“Ok! What is the deal with the fucking cum?” Helena demanded raising her voice.
Everybody stopped and just looked at her as if she had lost her mind.
“Don’t you realize what this is?” Roberts said excitedly.
“I almost forgot you were a porkie there for a moment,” Shelia replied. “Makes sense that you might not immediately get it.”
“So… Terrans love cum.” she turned the camera to face herself. “You heard it here first, gentle viewers.
“This is one of the things we prize more than anything.” Roberts said almost in awe.
“Note to self. Never kiss you again.”
“This is biodiversity! Terra took a beating and what the ash and frost didn’t kill we finished off ourselves,” Roberts replied. “A lot of species went entirely extinct either from starvation or from simply being hunted to extinction. That hamburger you like? Cows didn’t make it. They went completely extinct. They were re-created from genes that we managed to salvage somewhere and a lot of them are damn near clones, or actual clones, of each other. We have managed to find more than one sample, of course, but nothing compared to the diversity before they went extinct. The number of different varieties of even the humble cow was staggering! The same goes for damn near any other animal you can name. This could be completely new genetic source material either for an animal we already recreated or maybe even a lost species! Helena,” Roberts said looking deep into her eyes, “This is huge!” he exclaimed as he hugged her.
“So while the fire and ash was falling someone ran around jerking off their cows?”
“The right term is bull and no, they likely didn’t.” Greg laughed. “It was a common practice if there was an exceptional animal, a ‘prize’ cow, or horse, or whatever to collect its semen to sell to other breeders so they could impregnate their females with it. This is likely what this stuff is!”
“The only thing that’s ‘weird’ is that it is just sitting here gathering dust!” Shelia exclaimed.
“Look at all the beetles!” Eno yelled from across the room while holding up another box of specimens.
“We have beans and grain over here!” Jacob yelled. “Holy shit! Look!” He hollered as he held up a handful of garden seed packets.
“We find fucking lost masterpieces in here and this is what you are surprised to find?”
“Well, yeah!” Shelia said with a laugh. “This stuff… Jesus… You can quickly sell it for a fucking fortune which is exactly what we are going to do,” she said with glee. "The big bio firms will get into a bidding war over damn near anything. There are people who make a very good living ‘prospecting’ for just scraps of genes out in the wasteland. If this stuff is what I think it is, intact premium livestock goo, we can get an auction set up in just days and the take will be unbelievable. There is absolutely no reason for it to just be sitting here. Even a porkie would have no problem moving this. The bio giants would come to them! If any of those seeds are a new variety or lost species they are worth a fortune even by our standards,” Shelia said spinning around happily. “If nothing else it’s just neat as hell! This is better than anything we could have hoped for! Those paintings are just pretty. This stuff? This stuff is useful!”
“Yeah, it is weird that it’s just sitting here,” Jessie chirped as she was kneeling down among the cases of semen. “Bunny, can we find out who was the generous soul who just gave us this wonderful gift?”
“The encryption is pretty standard. Give me a minute...” Bunny replied as Jessie was gleefully scanning vial after vial.
“A hundred bottles of jizz on the wall… A hundred bottles of jizz!” Jessie started singing as she scanned away.
“Jessie I am fully prepared to hurt you,” Shelia laughed.
Jessie clutched a vial to her chest.
“Not in front of the children!” she giggled.
“Scan it! Don’t play with it! Jesus!” Sheila exclaimed as she shook her head.
“Oh you are going to fucking love this,” Bunny said as documents started to pop up on Jessie’s tablet.
“Well, now there’s a reason,” Jessie laughed. “Anyone here recognize the name Jayce Mortisen?”
“Who?” Roberts asked.
“He’s a brilliant scientist! An actual real fucking genius!” Helena gushed. “He has built a fucking empire on what he has created, not what he raided, or swindled, or stole, created! He just whipped up some of the most important crops we grow over here, no research team, no budget, nothing. He just sat down at his computer and just with just the power of his mind he… he… fuck.”
Shelia and the crew started laughing.
“Goddammit!” Helena yelled. “I admired that asshole! I even have one of his bullshit quotes hanging over my fucking desk! I can’t believe this!”
“Which quote was it,” Jessie giggled. “Was it the one with the angels, or the one with the doves?” she snickered as she held up an image of an inspirational poster as everyone howled with laughter.
“If you must fucking know it’s a cross-stitch I made when I was fifteen!” Helena said gritting her teeth.
The guys started roaring, Shelia was literally crying with laughter and Jessie was giggling so hard she was gasping for breath.
“Yeah, laugh it up!” Helena yelled. “Fucking laugh it up! I bought it! I bought the whole line, him fleeing from Earth with only the clothes on his back and the desire to build a better future for the whole human race, the whole ‘pull yourself and your people up by your bootstraps’ bullshit, the power of inspiration and creativity, all of it! Gah!!!” she ranted. “Did you know we awarded him the Humanity Award? That’s like one of our greatest honors! He was even given the fucking Federation Spiral!… Oh I’m going to fucking bury him!” she yelled. “Jessie! Can you get me proof, like something even a greased porkie can’t wiggle out of kind of proof?”
“Hey, you’re the reporter. You figure it out,” Jessie laughed. “No but seriously we’ll get you what we can. Pulling down a beloved porkie icon sounds fun!”
“Um… guys?” Jacob yelled as he opened another footlocker and pulled out a nearly empty bottle of seeds. “These samples have Cyrillic labeling...”
“Oh, do they now?” Shelia said, her eyes flashing. “Helena, my dear,” she said as she gave Helena a look that made her blood run cold, “We are going to be finding out all about this guy. I personally guarantee it.”

Clarkson's Columns: Litterers Should be Executed & the Vauxhall Corsa Review

Thank the lockdown gods, it's no Lambo
The Clarkson Review: Vauxhall Corsa
By Jeremy Clarkson (Sunday Times, April 12)
When Boris Johnson took his needle off the record and everything had to stay exactly where it was, the car I had on test was not a Lamborghini or a Bentley or an F-type Jag. Nope, the car I'll be living with for the next 300 years, the car that will not be picked up until after the coronavirus all-clear has sounded, is a bloody Vauxhall Corsa.
I don't know why this fills me with such Eeyorish gloom. Maybe it's because cars must have a sense of place. You need to know where they were made, because then you can understand why they're the way they are. A Ferrari is obviously Italian. A Honda is obviously Japanese. A Vauxhall is obviously … nothing at all. It's automotive wallpaper paste.
For as long as most people can remember, Vauxhall was part of General Motors, which meant it was American, but the only thing I can think of that's less American than a diesel-powered Astra is Stalin's moustache. Maybe this is because Vauxhall is a sister company to Opel, which makes it German. Except that these days it's part of the Peugeot group, so it's French. Apart from the fact that the Corsa I've ended up with was made in Spain. It is, then, like one of those ghastly Eurotrash people you see in Hello! magazine: a baseless, rootless waste of blood and organs.
And, oh my God, the people who drive them. Whenever someone comes up the drive to my farm in a pick-up truck, I know he or she will be arriving to do a job of work. Shepherding. Fencing. Bulldozing. Tractoring. And whenever someone comes up the drive in a Vauxhall, I know it will be someone from the government to stop them.
I'm not kidding. When I see an Insignia coming into the yard, I dive into a vat of slurry to escape, because it's always someone with a clipboard and an expenses chit and an encyclopedic knowledge of the obscure rule I've just bent. I can't remember what my teachers drove, but I bet all the annoying ones who enforced the rule on top buttons being done up had Vivas.
The problem is really that old.
Vauxhalls have always been Ernie Wise to Ford's Eric Morecambe. They have tried to be part of the gang and, occasionally, to be cool, but never pulled it off. Being named after a railway station might also have had something to do with it.
They've even had fast cars over the years. The Chevette HS, for example. And the droop-snoot Firenza. And the Lotus Carlton, which was created by fitting a Saturn V rocket to a canal boat. Some of these were actually quite good. But what sort of person sits up in bed in the middle of the night and says, "Right, business is good, I shall buy a fast Vauxhall"? Behind the scenes, James May, Richard Hammond and I have always agreed that the single funniest thing in motoring is the concept of a "fast Vauxhall". It displays such a monumental lack of ambition. It's like buying a really expensive piece of jewellery — from the market.
I once asked an idiot — he had on a tracksuit and a baseball cap, and he spoke without really moving his mouth — what car he would buy if he had an unlimited budget. "A Calibra turbo," he replied. It was the single most underwhelming, shoulder-sagging answer in the entire pointless history of vox pops.
That's why I was miserable about my new life in the Corsa. And doubly miserable to discover it had one of those lively three-cylinder turbo engines. Sweet Jesus. It was trying to be a fast Vauxhall without even having any under-the-trousers cred. At least the Nova SRi, which tried to pull off the same trick in the 1980s, had flared wheelarches.
That said, the Corsa was quite pretty. And practical too, I think. I tried to borrow some children to see how many would fit in the back, but that kind of thing is apparently frowned on these days. I then went for an essential drive to do key work and you know what? Despite myself, I liked it.
The Renault Clio I tested last week was more comfortable, but the Corsa is peppier and more eager. That engine really does have a sense of place. And the place is very definitely France. There's an off-beat strum and, despite the fact it's only a 1.2, it doesn't half crack along. My only real complaint from behind the wheel was the braking. I only had to look at the pedal and the damn thing stood on its nose like it was in a cartoon.
Oh, and when you push the button to start the engine, what happens is: the engine doesn't start. It just sits there. So you push the button again and it thinks, "Oh, you do want me to start after all." This is annoying. But, all things considered, it's not bad at all. If it were called something else — the Murderer, for example, or the Faeces — then I'd recommend it wholeheartedly. And I know someone else who would as well.
I'm sharing my cottage in these trying times with an 18-year-old girl. Wait. Let's be clear. I'm sharing my cottage with her mother, and she's here because of that. As you can imagine, she is not happy about the quarantine. She's supposed to be taking her A-levels this year. She's supposed to be planning the school trip to Magaluf and a million summer parties. Instead of which she's here, clearing out the chickens, mending fences and pretending she's happy to watch a Bond film every night. But it's not all doom and gloom, because I have a long drive and I have that Vauxhall and it has a manual gearbox.
So what she does is invent reasons for going to the bottom of the drive and then, when she's there, invents things she's forgotten back at the house. It's all she does. Whizz up and down the drive. It's entirely possible that when the prison doors are opened and we are allowed out again she will have become the new Lewis Hamilton. She will certainly be the first person in human history to say that her only true happiness for a long time was a brown 1.2-litre Vauxhall Corsa.
In a funny sort of way, the fact it makes her happy makes me happy too. So I'm glad I don't have a Bentley or a Lamborghini, because she's too young to drive something like that.
And here's the funny thing. The herbert from the Welsh Pig Breeders' Gazette who does have the Bentley and the motoring writer from Cosmopolitan who's got the Lamborghini can't drive them either. Because in these troubled times "road-testing a car" is not a good enough excuse to leave your house.
They are, then, marooned by their own good fortune
While we're stuck at home, Bounty Bar Man and Cola Woman are having a litter-chucking field day
By Jeremy Clarkson (Sunday Times, April 12)
Good news. The world's paparazzi have decided that they're key workers. They reckon the human race cannot survive without food, power, healthcare … and a daily fix of Amanda Holden in a short skirt. So while we cower under the kitchen table, whimpering, they're still out there, risking their lives to bring us a bit of celebrity side boob. I salute them.
I don't actually. I think they're annoying. And I find it wildly hypocritical when they go outside to take photographs of famous people who should not be outside. However, last week one of them managed to capture the moment when a man nicknamed "the Hot Felon" wound down the window of his car and lobbed his unfinished lunch onto the pavement.
If you are unfamiliar with this Hot Felon man, I salute you too, but let me fill you in. He shot to fame after he was arrested on gun possession charges and the Los Angeles police department put his mugshot online. Thousands of very stupid women thought he was goodlooking, and as a result he was given a modelling contract. And as a result of that, he went onto date, and then father a child with, the daughter of the Topshop boss, Sir Green.
This made him a paparazzi target and he responded by wearing extremely weird clothing and pausing on red carpets wherever possible. We all knew he'd done two years for beating up a child. And we all knew he'd been part of the LA gang scene. But it didn't matter. Because thousands of orange women were saying: "Oh, but look at his eyes and his chiselled jawline." So he probably thought he could get away with anything, which is why he decided to lob his half-finished lunch out of the car window.
And do you know the awful truth? He will get away with it. The idiotic pap who caught him in the act was more bothered about who he was with. So were the idiotic gossip journos who wrote the captions. No one was bothered about the fact he was throwing effing litter out of the effing window. Except me. I still think this is the only crime for which there should be the death penalty.
A month ago I decided to tidy all the litter from the verges on the small single-track road that goes through my farm. I was pleased with myself, but last week, on my daily walk, I noticed the problem was back and worse than ever. In fact I counted, and lying in the grass on this mile-long stretch of country lane there were 117 new pieces of junk.
And what makes that astonishing is that we've been in lockdown all that time. These days only a handful of people are using that road.
The problem gets worse if you go further from the verges. The same day, in one field, I found a car bonnet and a front door. In another are 24 bin liners filled with something squishy. And in another a mini fridge. And that's just the big stuff. The cans and the wrappers, they're just endless. It's as if there's been a plane crash out there.
I did a survey and the results are interesting. There are no discarded champagne bottles and no Caffè Nero paper cups. Round these parts Minuty and Léoube rosé wine is popular, but I could see no evidence that the people who drink it throw the empties over the nearest wall.
There were no Daylesford sausage-roll wrappers either, and nothing that ever contained olives, chicken liver pâté or Green & Black's dark chocolate. Examine the flotsam and jetsam and it's as though the middle classes simply don't exist.
We know there will be no evidence of the toffs either, because the upper classes never throw anything away, ever.
Did you see the Queen's phone in that photo they released recently? It was the sort of thing that used to ring in James Herriot's study when you dialled Darrowby 385.
I'm afraid, then, that when we are looking for someone to blame for the mountain of litter, we need to say it like it is. It's the Flora margarine people. Idiots who like milk chocolate Bounty bars and Nando's and cola from companies you've never heard of because it's even cheaper than Pepsi. It's people who are stupid.
I spent some time that day wondering what goes through their heads as they throw their greasy kebab papers out of the window, and then I realised it was a futile exercise. Nothing goes through their heads. They are not capable of thought. They are insects, in tracksuits.
Which gives me an idea. When we get out of this godawful Covid-19 mess and we are plunged into economic chaos, none of these human-shaped bluebottles will have a job. They'll be standing around like goldfish at feeding time, waiting for a BBC vox pop reporter to come along so they can say the lack of government action is "disgusting".
Well, how's this for a plan? When we were all told to stay at home, the first thing almost all of us did was tidy up. And when we'd tidied up the bits we could see, we tidied up the bits we couldn't. At one point I vacuumed my gun safe.
And that's what we will have to do when the virus has been hammered back into the bat from which it first escaped. We are forever being told that the world will be a different place. Greener and kinder and all those motivational, social-media-friendly things that people trot out when they've planted a tree or bought some organic chai.
Yeah, well, if we want it to be greener and kinder, and cleaner as well, we should get the millions of unemployed to work for their dole. Put simply, they can have a state handout only if they turn up at the dole office with a bag of rubbish. That's similar to what they do in Tanzania, and as a result the place is spotless. I think we've a lot to learn from rich countries like that.

The Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…….

With the Saratoga season quickly approaching, I’ve had my arm twisted enough by the Discord team to write a primer on the track. I live about 20-minutes east of Saratoga and it’s my home track; my first real memory of a horse race was betting on Forty Niner in the ’88 Travers……I was 6…… During the 40-day meet, I do most of my wagering for the year and consistently show a nice positive ROI.
What is Saratoga: The Saratoga Racecourse is the oldest continually operating sporting venue in the United States. The town of Saratoga was founded around dozens of natural mineral springs which were turned into bath houses at the end of the 19th Century. Those fighting conditions like Polio sought out the healing properties of the springs; FDR was a regular visitor. The town is about a 3-hour drive north of NYC, so it’s a major summer retreat for those looking to escape. During most of the year, Saratoga is a sleepy town of 25k; on a major race weekend that number will be 5x that.
Why is it Important: The 40-day long meet has 76 stakes with $20.8 million in purse, 40 of those being Graded. Most tracks best day of racing for the entire season is a regular Saratoga Thursday afternoon, the field size and quality here is just unmatched. The feature of the meet is the Travers stakes which will see 3yr old’s coming from the Triple Crown trail facing off against later blooming horses who are setting up for a late season run targeting the Breeders Cup. Saratoga also sees a huge number of very talented maiden races where you will often see next year’s Triple Crown contenders get their start. Owners and Trainers want to show off their very best and a win at Saratoga means massive bragging rights for most. Due to its northern latitude and numerous training tracks, Saratoga is a massive training track that sees horse shippers from around the country even if they have no intent on running there. For the month of July and August, Saratoga really is the focus of all horse racing east of the Mississippi.
What you should know before going:
· New this year, the meet runs from July 11th through Labor Day Weekend with Monday and Tuesday being dark days. First post is normally 1pm except for major Saturday’s like Alabama and Travers Day.
· General/Grandstand admission is $7 with clubhouse being $10; on Travers day General/Grandstand is $15 with Clubhouse being $25. Clubhouse admission does not provide a seat, only entry to the Clubhouse areas.
· Track has a 50k capacity and it WILL sell out for Travers day a solid month in advance. If you show up at the gate for Travers without a ticket, you will be turned away.
· Reserved seating is available through Ticketmaster. If you’re someone who wants to just show up and watch the races, this is a nice easy option. Just remember that although these are covered, many of the lower seats are in the sun, so dress accordingly.
· Most regulars will sit in the Picnic Areas behind the Grandstand. Bring a camp chair and watch the races on the copious big screens. A number of these areas (specifically right behind the Carousel) have a walking path that goes through them so you can watch the horses before they hit the paddock and tree cover keeps you out of the sun.
· If you want to sit in the Picnic Area and have a Picnic Table, you have two options. The first is to reserve one of these through Ticketmaster, but the reserved area is behind the paddock and really sucks. The other is to be at the gates for 6am, wear running shoes (I’m serious) and sprint for a table. Place a tablecloth on the table and tape it down then come back for the races. Moving a tablecloth is a massive Toga foul and you will get tossed if you’re caught.
· Outside food and drink are totally fine in the picnic area, the only real rule is no glass of any kind.
· No formal dress code exists for most of the track, although pants are required for men in the paddock and “appropriate dress” is required in Clubhouse and Box Seating areas. You’ll see everything at the track from picnic area regulars in shorts and a t-shirt, those in 3-piece Armani suits, to some wearing vintage Linen or Seersucker.
· If you’re looking to stay in Saratoga, its not cheap, with rooms often going from $300-600 a night with houses in walking distance to the track going for upwards of 10k a week. Best options are to stay in Clifton Park, Albany or Lake George which are all about a 30-minute commute. Some good AirBnB options exist about 15-minutes east of town along the Hudson river as well.
· If you’re bringing people not into horse racing, tons of options exist for them. Six Flags has a theme park in Lake George with a full water park. A 30-minute drive north puts you in the Adirondack park which has amazing hiking, biking, canoeing and camping. Just east is the Battenkill river which has amazing trout fishing and is the home river of Orvis. For the history buff’s, both the Saratoga Battlefield and Grant Cottage are close by. SPAC in the Saratoga State Park is a summer location for the NYC Ballet, Philadelphia Orchestra and sees major national touring acts. The Spa Park also is a great running, biking or picnic spot that is super close to town.
· Saratoga also has the highest number of bars per capita in the US, tons of options exist Caroline street during the Summer. Restaurant wise you have a lot of world class food along Broadway and around Saratoga Lake. Many people who vacation during the summer have no interest in horse racing, so people watching at the bars can be an amazingly fun evening adventure.
· Although many people prefer paying to park (no idea why), NYRA does offer free parking off from Henning Road which is your first right after getting off the Northway with buses taking you from the parking lot to the track. Although not Glamorous, its a good way to save a few bucks and you get a nice scenic tour of the barns.
· Breakfast with the horses is an absolute MUST if you're a first timer. Get there from 7-9:30am and sit in the Clubhouse Porch and eat the Buffet (I think its $15) while watching morning works. You can park right at the track and they refund your parking on the way out. They also normally have a caller so you'll get names of major horses who might be working, its really an amazing scene.
Angles to Consider:
· Having good friends is a massive benefit here. Fields are deep and competitive, so having a 2nd or 3rd set of eyes looking at PP’s is huge. A group of us Handicap a couple of days before each card, so hop on Discord and go through the races as a team, it will substantially boost your ROI.
· Saratoga is the land of Maidens, so Workout Reports are key. All the major east coast trainers will bring the best of their best 2yr old’s to Saratoga as winning a race there is massive. The only true way to gauge these horses is with workout reports. Always remember that PP’s are rearward biased; you care about the horse today, not when it last ran a month ago. Due to the time of the Saratoga meet, it’s very common to have improving 2 or 3yr old’s take a massive step up here.
· Best way to make money at Saratoga is to pay attention to track biases and to make out your own odds. Track tends to be very speed favoring one day and then it’s all closers the next; watch not just what horse is winning but how and adjust accordingly. Saratoga also sees a lot of "dead money", people with no clue who are betting names, colors, jockeys, trainers...etc. These people LOVE to chase favorites and they are very often overlay’s more here than any place else in the country. If you handicap with no ML and have a horse's fair value at 3-1 its often common to see it drift to 10-1 because a Pletcher firster is 1-9 when it should also be 3-1.... etc....
· Saratoga is also the land of crazy weather. It’s not abnormal to have half the card be 80 and Sunny then a pop-up Thunderstorm rolls through and you have mud with off-turf. The public has no ideas how to manage this and will still bet a turf horse who hates running on the dirt. This leads to some massive overlay’s if you’re prepared.
· NYRA Bets always runs a bet $200 get $200 promo for new signups, it’s well worth your time if you don't already have it. They sometimes will run additional promos on top as well for new members on-track during the meet. This lets you use Mutel terminals if you like tickets without a voucher or you can do everything online which is WAY more efficient.
· In any Saratoga Dirt/Mellon/Inner Turf race between 5 and 6.5f, always toss the 1 horse. Over the past 3 years the 1 post is something like 5 for 450 at those distances. This is partially due to those distances seeing younger horses, but also due to the shape of the inner rail entering the far turn.
· Fade horses in the 8 path and beyond in 2-turn routes, they have terrible statistics even when accounting for field size. The most problematic races are 1 mile on the Mellon turf where early positional speed is huge. 9 & 10 furlong races on the main track also favor the inside as a shorter runup into the first turn can leave outside horses stranded.
· Irad ran away with the 2018 Jockey title, but it’s always super competitive. Saratoga has one of the best jockey colonies in the country so it’s not a chase for a good jock but pay attention to what mounts they choose. If you saw that JJ was on three horses last out but choose one of those this time over the others, it’s likely that horse is very live…. etc.
· Chad Brown also dominate the Trainer title in 2018, with it not even being a contest. His entire barn points for the meet so if it’s a CB horse, its live, just deal with it.
· With all the CB love at Saratoga, certain trainers also have TERRIBLE statistics and should be faded or avoided. Those trainers who have solid numbers of starters and do well at other tracks but suck at SAR are: Amoss, Arnold, Keneally, McPeek, Moquette, Rivelli, Romans, Stall, Stewart and Wilkes. You’ll notice a KY trend there; yes, it is real….
· Pay attention to “well meant shippers” meaning oddball ships and weird drops. Look for horses coming out of smaller tracks like a Penn, FL, GP West, OP... etc... who are trained by small time trainers who have limited starts. Betting public tends to feel a lot more comfortable backing a Pletcher horse than a guy who sees 25 starts a year from a 5-horse stable. You'll often see a horse who ran in a couple MSW races at a Penn for 12k, took a two month break with little work pattern, then shows up at Saratoga in an MCL 45k and wins. Also, huge class drops are less of a concern at Saratoga as traineowner title are so important, hell just winning a race is huge so often people will be OK being claimed away to say, "My horse won at Saratoga". You also tend to see a lot of horses who have one or two not very impressive starts, go on the bench for a month or two and then appear at Saratoga and win from a no-name trainer and connections, things often don't pass the sniff test and are often live in doing so.

Today's 10th race at Santa Anita (after the Juvenile) is a good betting race

This is my free race for the Santa Anita site which you can get here but it's also pasted below.

Race #10

#5 Parsimony - Minimum betting odds 7/2

#2 Candy Cornell - Minimum betting odds 7/2

#1 Rogallo - Minimum betting odds 4/1

#8 Threefiveindia - Minimum betting odds 4/1

#16 Top Brass - Minimum betting odds 4/1

I’m not recommending any exactas in a wide open race but if you consider the wager, in addition to those above also consider #11 Justinian and #13 Coil Me Home, at least for the second position on those exacta tickets.

Parsimony opens at hard to ignore 10/1 odds, mostly because he just broke his maiden, BUT this is a first level allowance and not only does he fit perfectly, he faced and ran well to much tougher foes than he faces today. So highly regarded earlier this year as a maiden, Parsimony ran in the Cinema Stakes and finished second, ran in the Los Alamitos Derby and finished second to Game Winner and ran in a couple of other stakes on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. Finally put where belongs last out, in a maiden dirt sprint, he won easily at 5 to 2 and so 10/1 here could prove to be very profitable if he just repeats that last effort which earned a solid 105 Equibase Figure.

Candy Cornell has just one win in 12 career starts and four runner-up finishes but his last race, under nearly identical conditions, was his best yet as he missed by a half-length for the win and was a head behind runner-up Rogallo for second.

Rogallo was making his fifth career start that day BUT ONLY his second in a dirt sprint, having won a dirt sprint in his debut, and Candy Cornell broke his maiden in a dirt sprint, so both have good shots to be competitive right back, opening at 8/1 and 6/1, respectively.

Threefiveindia has four career wins including one at this level but is in for the optional claiming price today first off the Miller claim at the same level. That was his first start after eight months off and his first after being gelded, so we can and should expect improvement second off the layoff, second off the gelding and first off the claim by a top barn.

Top Brass can be considered a contender if he gets in from the also-eligible list as he loves to win, with a 7 for 13 record on dirt. He too was claimed out of his last race, a fine runner-up effort when beaten a half-length, over the track, and from an outside post he can stalk the speed and close nicely just as he did for all three of his previous wins in six starts on the Santa Anita dirt.

How to Watch USA Horse Racing Free Online in Australia??

I'm from Australia but I have a keen interest in USA horse racing.....Our local racing telecasting Sky Racing show about 8-10 races (inc harness racing) from across the US but as for the other 100s of races, it's very hard to get to watch them.
I know if you make a betting account TVG or Twinspires (and there's probably several others as well I'm sure) they give you the free vision of all races, but that leaves Aussies hamstrung because even using a VPN it's impossible to create a USA betting account from outside the country and have it verified (I've tried) because you need an SSN matching up with your personal details to be verified to be able to view the races.
Is there any way to watch all the venues online for free? We get the MASSIVE races like the Derby, Preakness, Belmont, Breeders Cup etc on Sky Racing but even big G1's like the Haskell the other week I was unable to watch.
It's strange because many of our online betting services in Australia bet on these races but there's no readily found vision of them for Australian's.
If anyone has an idea of how I can get around the twists & turns and make an American betting account to watch or better yet somewhere that live streams for free I'd love to know. I quite like NBC's coverage of the major races but we can't even get that being in Australia even with a VPN because NBC requires a USA cable network subscription.

Thanks In Advance!

Raising Axolotl Eggs Guide:

Disclaimer: I’m no expert nor amphibian doctor. This is based on my own experiences. Please seek a vet if you have a very severe illness axolotl as I cannot help you with that.
If you have eggs from an accidental breeding that you don’t want especially siblings- bad idea. Cull eggs or give them away to a reputable breeder. You don’t want to sell eggs with unknown genetics/heterozygous “het” or morphing/inbreeding lines. So it’s important to know their hets and that both are unrelated to each other. Look for reputable breeders with well established lines and check in with them to see if they are willing to sell you some eggs. Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, Caudata, Aquatic Hobby Trade, Discord, Band, MeWe, Twitter, Tumblr, Imgur, Craigslist, Aqurium/Amphibian/Salamander Community, etc is a great place to start with. I can definitely recommend you some of my personal top favorite reputable breeders/sellers in the US if you are interested. Send me a PM/DM for the list.
Tip #1. - At 68°F they hatch at 12-14 days. Under 68°F they hatch usually up to 20 days. Over 68°F they hatch faster at 9-10 days. I strongly recommend you keep them under 68°F.
Tip #2. - Keep them in a plastic or glass container. With plenty of fresh treated water (I use a Seachem Prime). Only change the water after a week, but make sure the new treated water is the same temperature as the old.
Tip #3. - Once the eggs start to hatch you need to move the hatchlings which is now called ‘larvae’ to another container as such as plastic shoeboxes. Use a turkey baster to move them. For new hatchlings allow 10 larva to 1L of water at 1” deep.
Tip #4. - Hatchling axolotls will only eat live food (I chopped my live black worms since day one for my larvae, but baby brine shrimp is one of the good first foods) for the first 6-8 weeks until their sense of smell develops enough for them to eat non-moving food. Frozen blood worms or frozen brine shrimps will NOT WORK at all, period.
Tip #5. - They need to be fed twice a day. At that point, you simply cannot overfeed at this age. Just be aware that excess food can increase ammonia in the water. Daily 100% water changes everyday. Some breeders do this twice per day and some breeders use a Holtfreter’s Solution, Modified Holtfreter’s Solution or John’s Solution to help keep the water hard and prevent fungus/bacterial infections. 1/2 cup of salt solutions per 5g treated cold water. Indian Almond Leaves (IAL) also works well (It’s optional, by the way). Again, always make sure to use the same temperature every time you do their water changes.
Tip #6. - Once they reach to around 12 weeks, or 3 inches long you can separate them to reduce the nips. Individual containers would be best especially if you plan to sell them. At this size they are generally considered an appropriate size to sell. Don’t be afraid to cull sickly or deformed babies.
Tip #7. - Contamination is also something that can kill larvae quickly. You need to ensure tubs are cleaned at every change with hot water and a clean paper towel (Vinegar is one of safe options to use for cleaning).
Tip #8. - Don’t forget to check in online resources, such as We Love Axolotls and Aquatics (sponsored by or Axolotl or Caudata for more details. Always keep it in your mind that and are very good for a basic axolotl care information only, but the updates are often old and may have changed, etc. Interacting with the reputable axolotl breeders/experienced aquatic keepers are your best bet as they all have rich experiences and knowledges.
Key points to note: 1. Don’t breed siblings. Although there’s not as much problem with inbreeding in amphibians as there’s in mammals, it’s still not a good idea. 2. If you are breeding intentionally consider the genetics involved and the colors in potential offspring. 3. Don’t try and raise too many. A handful or a couple of dozen is great for a beginner. 4. As soon as you have eggs or order them start thinking about food. Don’t leave it until they start to hatch. 5. Always keep everything CLEAN! 6. Give them plenty of space and food, separate them into size groups as they grow.

About Exacta Bet

About Exacta Bet
The Exacta Bet is the best place to start learning about betting. It belongs from the category of Exotic Bets. Through betting you can win big amount while investing a little one. The exacta bet will place, when you choose your front two finishers in the race in exact order. Exacta bet can be placed on famous horse racing events like Kentucky Derby, The Preakness Stakes, These are some well known championships and best place to bet on breeders cup!
The making of Exacta Bet
You can place your exacta bet on race track or also as OTB (Off-track Betting) via online betting sites and also see every update on those sites. The minimum stake value for an exacta bet is $1 and $2 on some race tracks. Betting online is completely legal in some countries i.e. you just need ensure your safest place and bet placing website. There are unlimited bet winning in exacta. For example if you place a bet of $2 and your exacta is correct you will be pay off multiple times. There can be seen different exacta pay off for different Championships. Nyquist, Exaggerator and The Kentucky Derby Exacta pay off just $30.60 for each successful $2 bet. On the other hand, an exacta bet from 2009 Kentucky Derby pays off unto $2074. So, we can’t determine the exact value, it’s all depends on number of bets.
Breeders Cup
Straight Exacta Bet
Straight exacta bet is same as exacta. A bet is placed on two horses in their exact finishing order as defined above. For example, straight exact bet of $2 is placed then it looks as: $2 Exacta (1-5) which states that $2 exacta bet is placed for #1 to finish first (win) and #5 for second (place). It can also be understood by win and place like combination of both.
Exacta Box Bet
For exacta you need to select two horses 1st and 2nd in exact order of their finishing but in box exacta you just need to select your horses order does not matter it may be 1st and 2nd or its vice-versa. And box exacta also allows you to select more than two finishers. For example if you select 4 runners, then any two of need to finish in any order and there will be twenty-four possible outcomes which will cost you total $24 in $1 boxed exacta.
For example, if you bet on #2 and #7 to finish 1st (Win) and 2nd (Place), then their order does not matter in exacta box but cost of you bet will be $4. If you also think that number 8 is also good and can be 1st or 2nd finisher then, you are allowed to add third horse in box exacta, your bet look as Exacta 2-7-8 and your probability of bet winning will be increased. There will be total 6 possible outcomes which are 2-7, 2-8, 7-2, 7-8, 8-2 and 8-7 which cost you total $6. I would like to define simple mathematical formula for this confusion which is Factorial of Number of Horses like there are 3 numbers of horses in exacta box then it will be (3! = 3*2*1= 6).
Exacta Payout
Exacta will pay you on the basis of total no. of betting. It contains like a simple Collection and distribution among total number of wager and bet winners.
For a particular race a total of 1000 $2 Exacta tickets are purchased for a race. Then from the prize pool the income generated. So the prize poll has $4,000 due to the multiplication of 2,000 x $2. The 50 tickets which were sold have the perfect finishing order of the first two horses. Every successful winning ticket gain equal share of the prize pool. At the end, if we divide the total money of prize pool by total wins then every winning ticket recovered $80. For example - $4,000 / 50 = $80

Questions Answers
I'm involved in horse welfare and rescue in the USA. Here, owners and trainers rarely make provisions for horses that fail to race well or horses that can no longer race. They are commonly shipped to slaughter in Canada. Is it any different in the UK? Here in the USA, horses are raced as 2 and 3 year olds, despite the fact that no horse is skeletally mature before age 5 or 6. (For perspective for non horse people, a 2 year old horse would be about 13 human years old.) Is it the same in the UK? In the last ten to twenty years there has been an increased push to rehome and retrain as many horses as we as a sport can. I personally try to rehome every horse that leaves the yard to a good home, provided the owner is willing and doesn't want to keep it themselves. I wouldn't say that selling horses, particularly race horses, for slaughter is common practise here. I haven't encountered any instances personally. Horses are frequently run aged two or three in this country as well however I think it's wise to mention that while they do work hard it is not in our or the horses interest to overwork or break them down. In our yard if a young horse is showing signs of struggling we will ease off and give them time.
But, don't a majority of your horses run on turf (compared to US dirt tracks). We don't use dirt at all here. There are a few all weather tracks for flat meetings but most racing is done on turf.
, aren't pain medications more restricted in the UK circuits, so you really can't run a horse into the ground in the same way as US trainers can. Drugs are extremely restricted here, even a whiff of it and they will come down hard. Especially after the last couple of years.
Does the horse have any idea that he is going round and round? Oh yeah. They are clever bastards. You can often tell when it's time to retire a horse from racing because instead of carrying on the race when they get round the course and near to the stables they will try and pull up.
Where do they get jockeys from? Is it genetic? Do they have funny voices from getting their nads squished on the saddle every race? From Ireland generally! A lot do come from a long line of jockeys or racing families in general.
Well other than being Irish I guess the funny voice could come from the pounding their bollocks take...
What is a good resource to learn about racing in the UK if I wanted to attend as a tourist? This website is run by the governing body of racing and has lots of good information on racecourse and fixtures.
Once you have decided on where you want to go I suggest visiting some of the individual racecourses website as they are much more detailed. If you are visiting London during summer I do suggest going to Windsor they do fantastic evening racing, generally on a Monday night where you can get to the racecourse on a boat that comes up the River Thames. Cool huh?
Is racing there seasonal or year-round? Horse racing as a sport happens all year round however some elements of it are indeed seasonal.
For example Flat racing is predominately held over Summer, this is because these horses are generally smaller and appreciate 'faster' (read harder) ground.
During Winter we get most of the National Hunt meetings. National Hunt is the full name for jumps racing. Generally speaking horses are larger and as such need softer ground to prevent injuries and slow them down.
I've never been to a horse racing track and what are some of the reasons for me to want to go? Have you ever felt like the horses weren't being treated fairly on or off the track? Final question is have you ever witnessed anybody on the track gamble to much that you started to feel it was running their life? Sorry about all the questions! Horse racing is a fun and enjoyable pastime. It's great to get a lot of people together and go and have a few drinks and a couple of bets on horses, it really is exciting when there is money on it. It's a good fun day out and provided you budget like any other day out, it doesn't have to be really expensive either.
Welfare is a tough question to answer briefly but I will give it a shot and if their is more interest I can write up a larger response. I personally feel that the majority of trainers provide a very high level of welfare for their horses. We really do love the animals regardless of what people may say. Racehorses get treated especially well, better than most horses kept just for riding I would argue. We are incredibly strictly regulated on animal welfare issues and the punishments are severe for the very few people who do break the rules.
I personally am not a huge gambler, I have a little flutter every now and then but for the most part It don't gamble. I have not ever seen someone ruin their lives through betting but that's not to say it doesn't happen I'm sure.
If the horses are treated well, why are they whipped to make them run faster at the end of the race? It's to make them go faster, it causes the horse no damage and Jockeys are carefully regulated. Limits are set in place for how much a whip can be used and bans and fines for excessive use are common.
Horses are big animals and the whip is primarily a correctional tool, they are trained to respond to it and it's used to keep them under control. Most schools of equestrianism use the whip in some form.
Last year, there were some interesting articles in the press about how horse racing was a dying sport (for example, here and here). How does it look from your perspective? Horse racing is the second most attended sport in the UK, we also hold something like 6 of the highest 10 sporting fixtures in the UK each year. However the average age of the racegoer is getting higher and higher, at a higher level than I there must be a push to encourage a younger audience to attend racing. Racing in this country is coming under attack from decreasing in funding by the betting industry. Every year we receive less money to go towards prize money and such due to an archiac system called the Levy which is supposed to provided the sport with a proportion of bookmakers profits. Improvements look to be being made in this are as the Government, I believe, is pushing to regulate the betting industry differently allowing online betting in particular to be properly taxed and the money collected. It's tough for trainers right now. There aren't as many trainers around than there were in 2007. The recession hit us hard as unsurprisingly the first cost most people shed was a racehorse in training. Ultimately though the situation does start to look like its improving, people are buying horses again and yards are starting to be a bit larger each year. The next one to look out for is China. Racing is becoming very popular there and gambling isn't even legal on mainland china. If China liberalises at the rate it has been it may only be a few years before they regulate the betting industry and everything really kicks off.
Thank you so much for the reply! If you have a minute, I have another question or two... How often do horses race internationally, such as coming from the UK to race in the US or vice-versa? What about going to the Middle East? Also, are there many horses from South America in the UK racing circuit? Our top flight horses travel all over the world to contest titles. This is called "raiding" and foreigners come to England to do it too! The Breeders Cup is something every trainer wants to win. As for the Middle East the main draw is the money. It is insane. Next Saturday is the Dubai World Cup held at Meydan. They built this huge racing complex way out in the desert and hold loads of expensive racing at night to avoid the heat. Pretty surreal compared to here. I don't know of any South American horses running under rules and I'm not certain why they wouldn't. I suppose they don't have any good enough to warrant the expense of travelling over.
I was curious about the South American horses because a few years back there seemed to be a bunch of them on the American circuit from Argentina (that American owners had purchased). I think it had to do with the dollar being so strong and the economy in Argentina being so bad. Ahh. I think they race on dirt over in Argentina so they would be better suited for American racing.
Where are the races held? What are the most popular meets? Is "meets" the right word? Racing is held all over the UK Some of the most popular meetings are Royal Ascot, the Derby Meeting at Epsom and Glorious Goodwood on the Flat. Thousands of people attend these three or four day long meetings every year and it's really quite a sight!
Over the Jumps the most popular are the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National meeting at Aintree in Liverpool. The Cheltenham Festival is a personal favourite of mine as the atmosphere is truly electric, around 60,000 people attend each day.
Edit: Whoops! Yes meets is a fine phrase. More commonly people will say meetings, fixtures or races.
Thanks so much for your time, and I wish you the best of luck in the future! Your father sounds like a proper horseman. Id like to think I can spot a good one but not nearly as well as my father or my grandfather. It's a skill we all pick up the more we watch.
What's your favorite track? Have you had a few of your horses run in the US? I know whenever I see a steeplechase race in the program, the overwhelming majority of horses in the race are from Great Britain. My favourite to go to as a racegoer would have to be Newbury. The facilities are amazing and the racing is generally of a really high quality both on the flat and over the jumps. Professionally in recent years we have had some success at Plumpton down on the South Coast near Brighton, it's a nice little country course.
Not for my yard no sadly but I would love to come over for some of your racing. Some of my extended family take a few horses out there every now and then. It's every trainers dream to raid a Breeders Cup!
When it's clear your horse stands no chance, how much do you lay the horse on betfair? Call me a man of integrity but I don't at all. Maybe that's because it's been so long since I had a favourite...
Who makes the best sausages in Newmarket? Dunno mate. I'm all about the lasagne.
Roughly what percentage of races are still fixed? I have no idea to be honest. It's probably very very low, it's a hard thing to pull off and the punishments are very strict. Life long bans and potential criminal prosecution.
A few do attempt it of course, a big ring got taken down a few years ago. It's a shame that this is an issue that press fixate upon really as on a day to day basis you don't even think about it within the Industry.
Would it be advantageous for a midget to be a jockey? Not at all! Jockey's are professional sportsmen in a job where if you can't make the weight you can't ride. Some jockey's have to be very light while others can afford to be heavier, it depends on their role as every horse generally requires a different weight based on their handicap rating (A whole other kettle of fish).
Jockeys not only have to be light but have to be incredibly fit and strong. It's really hard work to ride a horse in that style for possibly four miles. Most jockey's I know aren't just good jockeys they are athletes who are proficient at most sports. They really seem to love golf.
If I could go back in time I would love to have gone the career path of a jockey... their commitment to the sport is fantastic and they really put their bodies on the line. Complete Commitment
I just hope some people understand the distances these jockeys travel just to do the job, they will do 2 meetings a day where possible, day in - day out. The physical exertion must be intense only to wake up and do it all over again. It's important to note that during the day most of them work for a trainer as well. They will ride out maybe three or four lots in the morning before going racing sometimes.
Do you gamble? Do you often get tips and are they reliable? Not often, I do for fun every now and then and always over the Cheltenham Festival.
Sadly not often but sometimes a good tip comes along. Often I'm too sceptical to believe it.
Thanks for doing this! I'm a big fan of horse racing and was wondering, what should I be looking at when placing my bet on a certain horse?. Days off? Avg class ? High speed? Etc. in other words , what is the most important stat? Form is the big one. Form over a comparable distance with comparable ground conditions. You can start to make educated guesses each way after that if you start to take in other variables like equipment etc.
The going has a massive impact from my experience, if the horse doesn't run well on a certain ground its a no-no. I couldn't agree more, going is vitally important however generally speaking when we run a horse on different ground than normal we are hoping it will overcome it.
When they state in the paper that they are wearing headgear or blinkers etc. do you think this can make a significant difference? Headgear is a really useful tool, sometimes they go really well. Other times it has no effect. Sometimes the effects deteriorate over time. Generally if one of mine is wearing head gear for the first time it means we have worked it at home and it's worked really well.
What was the most expensive batch of horse seed you know of being sold? By horse seed do you mean semen? If so in the Thoroughbred Bloodstock Industry Artificial Insemination is banned. Only natural coverings are permitted. Race horses are still crazy expensive though. People can spend millions of pounds on one horse.
What's your most gruesome story? i've heard some pretty horrific stuff from botched castrations/surgeries on horses. As for most gruesome I don't have any really awful ones about horses. We have had some nasty falls and one went through a barbed wire fence once but nothing truly disgusting. Likewise never seen any botched geldings or surgeries. But they do happen, I like to think the vet we use is pretty good so I hope it won't happen anytime soon!
Only live coverage is allowed? Fascinating. Why is that the case? So I take it that there is a limited amount of bloodlines unless you actually ship the horse out of country/continent? A few reasons.
One, limits the number of stock from a single stallion. AI decreases the cost of covering so semen would be more readily available. You would end up with thousands of foal in the same year by the same sire. Thats a quick way to fuck up your bloodlines.
Two, why would they change to it? Now all the selling power is held by those who it would affect most. The studs which own the stallions make millions of pounds a year in coverings, if they saturate (literally in this case) the market they will make loses.
Three, racing is an international sport, if one country did it and no one followed suit very quickly they would find themselves isolated with a horse population that couldn't compete abroad.
What is your favorite color? Blue. I like Blue...
That is the correct answer, OP. Now you must answer one more question to cross the bridge. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? African or European?
European. Ffffuuu...
Ohh boy. I've been wanting to ask so many questions about your industry but wasnt quite sure what sub to go to. Thanks for doing this ama.A bunch of questions here. Hope you can clear things up for me. How do trainers even make money. Sometimes the odds of a horse winning are upwards of 20/1 when the prize money is usually around 10k-20k(?). factor in the logistical, training and acquiring costs and seems like a losers game to train a horse (?) Hey man! Hope I can help. Trainers charge the owners of horses a training fee. This is generally a daily charge plus extras . Sometimes it's very hard to make money as a trainer, a lot of people don't turn a profit training racehorses many just do it for the fun and the lifestyle.
How do you even judge how fast a horse will be when you go to three auction? Generally breeding, if the mare and stallion are good the horse has a better chance of being good. Ideally you compare the horse to a full sibling however this is rare and you generally end up comparing them to half brothesister on the maternal side.
The Grand National seems like an absolutely absurd event to me. Would you say it enjoys broad support among the racing community? I think it's a truly impressive spectacle that is the hardest test we throw at our toughest horse and jockey teams. I don't feel it's representative of the day to day life in the racing world however.
I worked at the grand national once. a G4S man tried to crush me in a bin. Consequentially I don't trust anyone associated with your profession. Sorry about that. Aww come on. G4S as in the men being done for manslaughter? Trust me when I say we hate those hired security at the big meetings more than you do. We normally know the guy on the gate because it's been the same one for maybe twenty years. However at the big meetings they roll out extra staff and they get lost in the crowd somewhere...
How much pressure is there for the horses to get results? If you had a severe patch of not winning many races does this affect the finances of the yard? Everyone wants their horse to perform at the height of it's ability so it's tough. Hopefully you have owners who understand it's just a patch and that fortune will turn round in the long run.
Yards as a general rule of thumb don't really on prize money to fund themselves, it does however draw in new owners!
So whats the bread and butter of a decent yard then? The brad and butter is training fees through a daily cost per horse plus extras.
One or two wealthy owners who love the sport and who have three or more horses each are what every yard really needs. These owners are hopefully loyal and will use you year after year, topping up their stock. They are the ones who keep racing afloat.
In respect to training under saddle, what do the horses need to learn beyond the very basics of carrying a rider? In other words, what are some of the subtleties of a good racehorse's training? A lot of the time it's basic riding skills, shortening and quickening stride etc but the real aim is to get them to respond as well to the rider as possible. They have to respond to being asked to quicken or shorten. Ultimately each horse is different and generally the rider changes a lot to suit the horse.
Do you worry about having them change leads during certain sections of a race? With stride length, is it all based off rein cues since the jockey doesn't really have any leg (or seat!) aids to work with? Thank you! To be perfectly honest by this point I'm just glad I have got them there, it's the jockey's job to make sure he gives them a proper race. If you watch a race you will see the jockey uses his entire body when quickening, they still use their heels as much as they can!
So it's basically all about speed control? Could you explain how jockeys signal for the changes? Watch this
You can see as they come round the corner the jockey is holding his hands in a way that the bit just makes contact with the horse and holds it steady. When they ask them to go faster they break that contact and the horse no longer feel the bit and are physically encouraged by the jockeys movement.
Where do you get the leprechauns used in horse racing? and how do you coax them to ride horses for you? I generally find them hanging around rainbows actually. I offer them gold.
Did you ever get to work with / alongside Kauto Star? If so, just how awesome was he in person. His last King George win brought me to tears, such an amazing, beautiful horse! Sadly no but I was always a great fan of his. Great looking animal he was!
When I was in Newmarket visiting some of the tracks I was told that horse racing began to decline in the community when corruption with gambling and the treatment of jockeys were made aware. Due to these dilemmas, the community no longer firmly supported horse racing because it did not contribute to the steady state of the community that they initially sought. Is there truth to this? Can you further explain? Thanks! I think that maybe historically that could be the case but less so in this day and age. Nowadays corruption is rare and much easier to detect, staff welfare is very important and they have their own unions which continually lobby for better conditions.
Would you rather train 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck? Come on.
One horse sized duck. Think of the eggs...
Have u ever met John McCririck and is he a douchebag ? Not a face to face introduction but have attended several events he's been at.
Can confirm. Is a douchebag.
I just purchased an OTTB here in the US...he has set osselets and his last race was this past January. Is it common to race a horse with known ankle problems? Nope. If it moves badly it doesn't race. Fluid, comfortable movement is one of the most important things in horse welfare.
Do your racehorses piss frequently, or is it just that when they do have to piss, they really have to piss and can't hold it in? Aww man. They piss a lot. And it's not pleasant either. Did you know, horses are unable to walk and piss. They just can't do it.
Horses like to piss at irritating times, unless of course we are being dope tested and they will absolutely refuse for hours.
Did you know, horses are unable to walk and piss. I don't think that I could either; it's an eitheor thing for me. You should try it. it looks hilarious.
Odd question, but have you ever had any luck teaching them to do their business in one particular place, like a dog, or do they go pretty much anywhere? I worked at a stable once, and there was an old stallion who would only "go" in one corner of his stall... Horses are weird. There is no method. Some are just mental.
What kind of preparation does the horse go through the day and night before a race? I've always wondered do horses ever have a terrible nights sleep or a bad travel to the course and that causes them to under-perform. Whats the most common reason a horse under-performs in your opinion? There is a few things that may happen. If the race is far away the horse may travel to the racecourse the night before. This is to allow it to recover to be in best condition as long travel is taxing to the horse.
If it's at home I will give it less bulky feed at it's morning feed. Just high energy protein generally. We will then jump in the box and drive to the racecourse to arrive a few hours before the race. I think travel is a consideration when considering under performing horses.
Most common reasons for underperformance... I'd have to say the ground. If the ground isn't to the liking of the horse it can have a real effect on the way they run the race.
What happens to mediocre horses after they're through racing? We try to rehome them just as well as the best ones. A lot of owners really care about their horses and take them back for their retirement. If nothing can be done sometimes they have to be put down which is always sad.
What's the best breed? Both for racing and in general. Well thoroughbreds. It's the only professional racing in this country and I think they look just great.
Would it be legal for you to bet? It is legal for me to bet on one of my horses to win. I can't bet to lay a horse. I believe Jockeys can't bet at all.
Edit: Word change...
Who's going to win the Derby this year? God I wish I knew. Aidan O'Brien's probably got a good shot with his thing. That man gets some class horses.
What kind of jobs are there in the racing industry? I have grown up with horses and would love to work with them professionally but unsure what is available really. Do you need racing experience to become involved in the racing world? Exciting to see a fellow Brit here :) Try this
My best advice is find your local trainer and offer to work on weekends. They may pay you but they might not. If you're lucky they will give you a chance.
Hi,I was a part time worker of japanese horse racing was the easiest and well paid job I have ever gotten. do you have any ideas to improve japanese horse racing industry?or do you know any good japanese jockeys or horses? Hey there, I don't really know much about Japanese racing apart from it's got one of the best prize money returns! I think we can learn a lot more from you than you could from us.
When jockeys change weights, do they have to make up additional weights? If so, how are the additional weights attached on? They do indeed need to carry more weight. This done in the form of weight plates, these are made of lead and added to a special weight cloth worn under the saddle.
Do you get to go to the races with the horses you train? I try to go with as many as I can, either to lead up and groom or to saddle up. Sadly I don't have as much time as I used to but I still make all the effort to go. Especially for my favourites.
If you make it to Brighton, there's a load of redditors who meet up several times a week. Fantastic! I quite frequently go to Fontwell and Plumpton which are both nearby (kinda) haven't raced at Brighton though. I will have to alert the redditors next time I'm there...
BTW, Where's Shergar?? I will forward that question to Findus for you. They are good at hiding horses.
Is operant conditioning used in training, i.e. race with other horses and reward the horse when it wins? I wouldn't say it's used as a training method. If one of mine wins I always give it a little something extra and a few days off.
My potential future father-in-law was a horse trainer in his youth. What are some things I can learn about it for conversation topics? Perhaps a book or some similar resource so I can ground myself in some of the basics? Just start to follow racing a little, try and understand how it works. As for books I don't really know anything personally but some people are great fans of the Dick Francis novels which are based round horse racing however I can't say I have read them.
What does it take to train a good racehorse? Im yet to have a good racehorse, maybe I could let you know in around 30-40 years? I might find one by then...
But seriously some guys have a really good strategy, Nicky Henderson is always right up there on the Jumps side and Aidan O'brien recently has been incredibly good. I think the trick is to lots of wealthy owners!
Does the industry believe that sheikh Mohammed's investigation, that coincidentally cleared him of any knowledge of what was going on, was genuine? Who knows? I doubt Shiekh Mohammed would have actually turned to his trainers and said "Use drugs bro." I would imagine that the environment of pressure he puts on those who work for him is so great they feel like they have no choice.
that Dubai airlines flight full of drugs... that was just a coincidence then? Not at all, the drugs scandal has stuck very firmly to Shiekh Mohammed. He might well be guilty but I wouldn't know either way!
Were you just at the gold cup in Cheltenham? My wife is from (and her parents still live) about five minutes drive from the track :) Sadly not the Gold Cup! I went on Thursday for the World Hurdle and it was a really great day. Cheltenham is one of the best courses in the country and I really love that part of the Cotswolds.
What happens to foals who don't make the cut as racing horses? We try to rehome and retrain as many unraceable thoroughbreds as possible. However if nothing else can be done some are sadly put down.
I've won the last two grand nationals with 100 to 1 winners from random tips off strangers on the internet. So random stranger do you have a tip for me? I am not your random stranger my friend. Go with your system, pick a long shot for the national. Anything could win it.
As someone from Louisville, Kentucky, have you ever been to Churchill Downs? If so, what is your opinion on the track? It's one of the most known tracks worldwide because of the Kentucky Derby. Sadly no! But I am visiting Kentucky this time next year so let me know what I should do when I visit.
Do ya'll eat the horses when they are too old to race? What do you think I ate for dinner? Pizza?
(It was Pizza...)
Hi! You answered in another question that the horses know they're going round in circles, they know where the stables are and so on, but how well do they understand the concept of racing - i.e. how well do they know that the point is to be ahead of all the other horses at a certain place? Yeah some are better suited to different kinds of races. Some like to be in front all the way and hate to have other horses compete with them. Other like to slowly build from the rear of the field and then burst forward using their turn of foot. Others just plod along at the same pace and hit the line just right.
