Message: The calling yesterday at Flemington was just woeful, in nearly every race he would call the leader for about 10-15 secs and just repeat its name, no disrespect but just not upto standard. Even my girlfriend thought he was a shocker. Not to mention the fact that they ran out of racebooks before the 3rd race. Not usually any complaints about the VRC but yesterday wasn't a great day.

Message: And he missed the start (badly) on a few races - especially the Standish - he was still fumbling around in his pocket full of umms and errs while they were possying up on the rail 50m after the start. Anyone know who it was? (and where he'd spent NYE?)

Message: I was only interested in the Standish and I thought the caller sounded like he was a calling a harness race in the Kimberley. If that was the pattern throughout the day, it must have been a bit embarrassing for both the VRC and the race-caller.
Message: Anyone hear today the caller at Geelong throw the phone? They jumped and it starting ringing, he stopped the call you hear a loud bang and rattle then he starts calling again. thought it was gold.
Message: Rick McIntosh called NY Day at Flemington. I thought his last 200m were good all day, got nice and excited. But he went too early in the Bagot and at one point took a ten second pause. Also got the distances to go in running wrong a couple of times.
Was at Geelong on Friday, actually looked up at the box from the front lawn when the phone was ringing, looked like it was pissing Olszanski off so he reached over and grabbed it off the hook and smashed it down...quite funny!
