Message: Context! Try and understand it a bit better Weight Special. Within the world that is this forum and to those that inhabit this forum, you are rather unsavoury. Outside of this forum you don't exist to me or anyone else here. You are a nobody. I was not commenting on your status as a nobody outside of this forum. On your question about who the he'll I am? Just another nobody like you having his say in this forum. Don't let it bother you.
Message: Make that past tense, Henderson. They're two year olds who have had the rest of their racing days sacrificed by those who get sucked into the hype of the biggest two year old carnival, race, on the planet.
Thank you Gay, thank you Clarry, thank you David and thank you those who aspire to do what they do.
Message: The Slipper was a great race of speed horses and a case could be made for about 10. Some people found the winner, like Timeform who gave it 122 then backed off . Why ??? The 1 barrier was always a risk but she prevailed. My heart bleeds for the connections of Masquerado who had to scratch. His formline proved superb. I think we have some good gallopers went around in that Slipper
You have possibly the best racing brain on here so don't have a sook and begrudge us who worked out the race early - especially Steve. I don't want you two fighting as people of your stature should join forces!
And stop dissing Stratum! Clearly the best 2 year old and now smashing his arch rival Snitzel as a sire too! Very unlucky as a 3 year old. Boss clearly didn't suit him (and he wasn't his best in Melbourne) yet he still nearly won the Newmarket and arguably should have retired with victories over the great Takeover Target and the pretty great Glamour Puss.
The leading first season sire of two year olds in Australia!

Message: Ragamuffin gunner. Unsavoury Character is all part of being on a forum. No one could be here for further education. Has to be an ulterior motive for latching on, so we will presume you are here for an ego boost. Please speak of the highly thought of Mr Special with respect.

Message: "Crystal Lily reminds me very much of her sire: started off looking average: came good close to the slipper against the second-raters: won the slipper well: never sighted again."
I think your a bit harsh on her Infidel.
In the spring she ran 2 solid placings in black type races. First up on australia day she smashed her rivals, she was then nearly a month between runs going to 1200m in the dimaond and ran fairly well. She then backed up again the week later and smashed her rivals again. She then went to Sydney and gave them a hiding in the Sweet Embrace. And then she won the slipper.
I'm not for one moment saying she will go on to dominate as a 3yo, but as a 2yo I think she has been far more impressive than Stratum was.
Message: Good stuff Steve. Great analysis of things. I do believe that I alertedthe forum of the fact CL was the one on the rapid improve and would smack 'em slightly earlier than you but you worded things better than I did. I'd like to thank all the Sydney punters for ignoring her as well which enabled me to secure juicy odds on IAS best tote price. Was an easy day actually. Faint Perfume into Typhoon Tracy into Danleigh into Crystal Lily in a formula 2,3 and 4 parlay. A few grand better off at the end of the day. A rarity for me but a pleasure all the same. Well done to Weight Special as well. A rather unsavoury customer but he alerted us that Military Rose may have not much left in the tank. Spot on.
