i think the fact he lists rabbuka race 3 at randwick as his best bet in the winning post and not grizz in race 1 shows him to be unbiased and genuine in his attempts to help the av punter

I agree with Timesman. Not so long ago Richie used to bug me tipping odds-on pops at very opportunity, thinking how hard is it for any fool to do that but I have a more balanced view of him now, I just accept him for what he is.

Richie is an entertainer, large as life, full of vim - you can't knock the guy for being full of himself, it's what he is paid to do - keep the viewing public entertained and remember the viewing public is a very broad spectrum.

When he gets on the likes of Racing Review , The Early Mail and Blackbookers he is so forthright about his tips, most of us will ignore them but what does he care? Plus, as we all know, it is extremely difficult to consistently tip more winners than losers week in week out, I'm not that surprised that he mostly gets it wrong.

I recall a function at HQ on Chelmsford Day last year on a bog track where he was wheeled in as guest tipster. I thought here we go how predictable is this going to be.....well he tipped the Quaddie straight out (all short prices granted).....afterwards I fair dinkum pi$$ed myself at the idea as I turned out my empty pockets. One interesting point he made that day was that he does 'all' his punting in Sydney, don't know about you but I think that would require some discipline.

Yes Richie is bit of a goose but he has a certain amount of colour and if you don't like his tips don't take them, if you don't like his commentary hit the mute button.

My 2c.

Cheers

Hidden,

Richie is an entertainer along with racecallers and most of the racing media.

His comments are amusing.

Only a m*ron would take any notice of a racecaller or any other media identity in the determination of the resting place of their money. I understand you didn't back his selection. Mor*ns provide daily bread for proper form analysts (I consider myself to be in neither category)

Gee I reckon Richie is funny sausage.

Regards

Timesman

I dont see how people get so upset y Richie. He has a crack, is good for a laugh and his form comments are ok.

i dont reckon he is as annoying as bruce clarke.

templeton does have a vote on HOTY, and going on his comments about the sydney juvenile form (whether you agree or not), clearly shows which state his votes will be going too. there are a lot of people in the voting system who aren't even journos anymore, and plenty of fringe dwellers weighing in as well. too many for mine

Can't see what you have against Richard. At least his comments are genuine and unbiased which is more than can be said for the TVN anchors Clarke and Templeton in Melbourne. Hopefully neither of these has a vote in the upcomming Horse Of The Year awards where sixty percent of the voters are Victorian which makes the awards a joke as they just become a popularity contest.

just to put thigns into perspective i dont want either richard or his father shot, i was merely quoting my buddy who doesnt know how he gets a gig anywhere. but wat gives u the right to stick up for richie, he rarely tips any winners and after every single race he says that the horse he backed (normally a typical sydney $1.50 fav) was the most unlukciest runner. hes their to lead the punters a hand but he rarely does. mark sheen and ron dufficy would do a much better job!

I agree with JacobSydney. . . Forum has been a joke lately.

Why is that comment funny?

Someone that has to give selections for every race on the program can't always get it right.

And the one time that he selects a horse than runs last he deserves a bullet? Where do you get off?

Funny how quiet it is when he tips a few winners.

Regardless of what you think of them that type of comment is uncalled for .
I read these posts and dont often get involved but the stuff on here recently is disturbing and the moderators should be ashamed of themselves.

Your mate's not too bright then.

The choice is obvious. A couple more years of Kenny or forty more years of Richie ... ?
