Original Blog Post:

What an embarrassing disgrace this low brow event represents.

Once again, we have these B grade horses representing wealthy breeders, trainers and syndicates running for an obscene amount of money to keep the drunken party set amused for a couple of minutes.

Not only has it made racing in Australia a crass, money grabbing non event, it has ruined what should have been a big day at Caulfield where proper races are being held, albeit with hopeless participants.

Racing in Australia will continue to fade away until someone realises that horse racing is about the thoroughbred, the history and the prestige, not about money grabbing and plastic boguns.

Look at the horses in the Everest. None of them are worthy of an $8 million winners cheque. They are hardly worth the $300K cheque for running last. We have that Japanese horse who could not get within a bull's roar of the placings in Japan (he lost one by thirty lengths). On the bright side of things, at least we don't have that crippled British horse from Hong Kong highlighting how low our sprinting ranks are. He is over in the Old Dart where he demonstrated the state of Aussie sprinting at Ascot.

We all heard from the Grand Wizard of Team Dunderhead how this race would bring hundred of millions of dollars to Australia and an influx of overseas horses to compete. What has happened, absolutely the opposite. It is a dud and should be scrapped.

Our second tier sprinters from the past such as Apache Cat, Exceed and Excel and All Our Mob would have towelled this lot.

What do you think Luskin Star, Manikato, Placid Ark or Takeover Target would have done to these B graders. They would have all been rounded up by the turn and then streeted.

Instead of spending all this money on this non event the money could be put towards an inquiry as to why Aussie racing is in such poor shape and why our horses are so hopeless and what can be done to remedy the problems.

Which one is it Gladys?

You cant remember the name of the horse you nominated as a hypothetical Everest winner that "NEVER WON A STAKES RACE OVER 1200m in OPEN COMPANY and was in fact known to be a dud in the WET

OR

Is it that you cant remember why you selected this horse?

OR

Is it that you simply became all muddled up and are now admitting that you had NO IDEA about what you were talking about in the first place?

If it hasn't been done already King, I think it is time that you placed your head in professional hands.
Look on the bright side, you will have plenty of company with a few of Team Dunderhead already enrolled.

Come on Gladys,
There is nowhere to hide.

Which one of your nominated hypothetical Everest winners "NEVER WON A STAKES RACE OVER 1200m in OPEN COMPANY and was in fact known to be a dud in the WET?

This same horse was great when racing against its own age but only ever won three out of five of its starts in open company.

And of the three starts that he won in open company NONE of them were G1 races.

The FACTS are that the best your nominated hypothetical Everest winner could do in open company stakes races was to win the equivalent of one Listed race and two G2 races.

Please explain as to why you thought that a horse with a record such as this would have not only won but in fact street the field in the 2018 Everest on a wet track?

FAILURE to answer my polite questions this time will be taken by all on here as an

ADMISSION OF THE FACT THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW AND THAT YOU HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

And that

FAILING TO EXPLAIN YOUR REASONING (if any) YET AGAIN WILL BE TAKEN BY ALL ON HERE AS AN ADMISSION THAT YOU HAVE BEEN OUTWITTED BY YOUR KING

AND

THAT YOU NOW BOW YOUR HEAD IN SUBMISSION AS YOU WISH TO SYMBOLISE THAT YOU NOW ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU RECOGNISE THE SUPERIOR INTELLECT OF YOUR KING.

You obviously don't have much of an understanding of racing crowds in Aussie do you Rex. Most of the horses in The Everest go around week after week or month after in month in Aussie and don't attract more of a crowd than what goes to a suburban footy match. Most in attendance last week, like at Caulfield today, just go because they want to be seen, an excuse to booze up and have no interest in the horses, no interest. Most wouldn't have a clue what was running through the program. Just watch the coverage and see how many are watching the horses parade or better still, the race. Open your eyes.

The Everest is a crass event and prizemoney levels fabricated.

Gladys,

You wrote: "If you mean Luskin Star, he lost to Mistress Anne in the wet at Newcastle. Thanks for that one scoop!

But what's all this if you mean stuff? It's got nothing to do with if I mean. No its actually more about what you mean.Why? Because YOU are the one who made the selections in the first place NOT me.

Are you now trying to say that you think that you have now been able to ever so "unconfidently" narrow YOUR OWN four selections down to perhaps only two, that may or may not match my nominated criteria, but ever so obviously you are in fact still unsure as to whether are you right or wrong?

Quite frankly it would appear that you don't actually know, as you still sound really, really unsure about yourself as to whether these two are correct or not. Surely even a rookie mug like you can work out some simple statistics which either satisfy or DO NOT satisfy the criteria to which I referred regarding your inane selection.

Dear oh dear you really are a very sad individual. WHY? Because you are still unsure as to whether you have in fact narrowed YOUR OWN selections down to the right two out of the original four selections.

I/we know this to be true as otherwise you would not have to lower yourself to come cap in hand, bowing and scraping as you pathetically grovel in an attempt to seek reassurance from YOUR KING regarding YOUR OWN selections by asking his highness "If you mean"

I reiterate, its no good asking me I am NOT going to tell you. No Gladys it was your selection you will have to work it out for yourself, OR perhaps if you ask nicely, you may be able to get one of the older kids to help you work out which of your four selected horses
in FACT "NEVER WON A STAKES RACE OVER 1200m in OPEN COMPANY and was in fact known to be a dud in the WET.

If you mean Luskin Star, he lost to Mistress Anne in the wet at Newcastle. He was probably the greatest two year old ever after Vain and would have flogged those older horses.
Manikato was ordinary in the wet but even in the wet would have put that field into lifetime therapy.
It worries me that you lay awake at night thinking about me. It is not healthy.

Sorry Gladys but I consider that the timing of your inane post is more of a worry as I am sure that most "GENUINE" interested racing & punting type people on here would have more than likely be doing the form for the Apache Cat & the Cup etc.. around about the time of your most recent post.

My post was not in the am on Saturday & certainly not while the afternoon racing was on & or not until I had finished continuing to punt up some of my winnings (for once) on WA & the internationals. On reflection as they say off goes the head & on goes a pumpkin, as it turned out, I should have left the internationals alone! But what the hell I had a good night out all the same.

In any case your criticism of the timing of other peoples posts should be the least of your worries.

No you have more to worry about because you have proved yourself to be beyond a shadow of doubt the biggest MUG on here by your own ADMISSION that you DO NOT IN FACT actually HAVE ANY IDEA about what you are talking about.

And as such you now have absolutely no CREDIBILITY on here now and for evermore.

Gladys you have no FORTITUDE and or have lost the ability for delivering a sensible & stinging retort.

You are portraying the qualities of a whipped cowering dog in your gutless non attempt at explaining your hypothetical selection for the EVEREST even though I have politely requested same on more than one occasion now.

What sort of a person is NOT prepared back their own judgement and be able to to explain a simple (operative word)request. The word cur comes to mind.

PS
You may wish to criticize the timing of my post yet again here, but please be advised that I have some free time because I did the form earlier & I am not having a bet until the Apache Cat.

PPS
I hope Craig can do the right thing for me.

Gladys no need to say anymore, you were given your chance at explanation regarding your INANE hypothetical tip for the EVEREST.

YOU HAVE FAILED THE CHALLENGE. Its now official! We all now know (including you) how CLEVER YOU ARE NOT. AND that it is proven by your own ADMISSION that you DO NOT IN FACT actually HAVE ANY IDEA as to WHY you selected this horse.

I reiterate gladys, CHECKMATE!

Obviously you now have absolutely no CREDIBILITY on here now and for evermore. Why? Think about it, how can you possibly award any CREDIBILITY to someone who rambles on mindlessly about selecting a horse to hypothetically not only win the EVEREST, but predict it to street its rivals, but when challenged for an explanation, simply cannot give even the most basic explanation or any thoughts in an attempt to justify their reasoning for same.

Dare I say gladys, it appears that your mind has turned to mush and has lost the ability to display the most basic of reasoning functions. IT IS NOW OBVIOUS TO ALL ON HERE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY IDEA AS TO WHY YOU SUGGESTED THIS HORSE!

Oh and a few more points for me here gladys, my prediction was correct. I was right, not only do you not have any idea about what you are talking about, you also do not have any FORTITUDE.

Gladys,

It would appear that COMPREHENSION of what you read is NOT your strong point. So now you are resorting to diversionary tactics in an attempt to cover up your ineptness. Sorry but that is NOT going to work. As they say in the classics you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.

Come on Gladys enough of the red herrings. No its not about the cricket & you do not need a Rosetta stone to decipher plain English. This is a very polite request gladys. A simple explanation (operative word) will suffice. Could you please explain to us mere mortals on here as to why you would possibly suggest that a horse who Only ever won the following races in

"OPEN COMPANY"

one Listed hcp sprint race over 1300m

one G2 WFA sprint race over 1100m

one hcp race over 1100m.

And who in FACT "NEVER" won a STAKES race over 1200m in OPEN COMPANY.

And who history tells us was known to be hopeless in the wet.

Come on Gladys, given his record in OPEN COMPANY SPRINTS and his distinct dislike for wet tracks, how can you possibly "JUSTIFY" him as a selection to hypothetically street the others in the 2018 EVEREST field?

I challenge you to make a case for this horse that you have suggested would hypothetically not only win, but street this years EVEREST field. Come on Gladys this is your chance to show us all how CLEVER you are, or how CLEVER YOU ARE NOT.

C H A L L E N G E

FAILURE for you to take up my CHALLENGE and explain your selection will be deemed as an ADMISSION that you DO NOT IN FACT actually HAVE ANY IDEA as to WHY you selected this horse out of the annals of history, to have in your opinion, the hypothetical ability to street its rivals in this years EVEREST.

Sorry Gladys you are backed up into a corner now. NO ATTEMPT AT EXPLANATION WILL BE DEEMED BY ALL ON THIS FORUM AS AN OBVIOS ADMISSION THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY IDEA AS TO WHY YOU SUGGESTED THIS HORSE! Checkmate Gladys!

My prediction is that you will NOT have the fortitude to admit that you are WRONG and in FACT have NO IDEA what you are talking about.

gladys,
I challenge you to make a case for the horse that you have suggested and I have referred to as being a suitable candidate to hypothetically not only win this years EVEREST but also street the others.

I reiterate the FACTS about one of your selections which you suggest could hypothetically street the others in this years EVEREST field.

This horse only ever won in "OPEN COMPANY" the equivalent of at the time one Listed hcp sprint race over 1300m, one G2 WFA sprint race over 1100m and one hcp race over 1100m.

Now given his record in OPEN COMPANY SPRINTS how can you possibly "JUSTIFY" him as a selection to street the other in the EVEREST field?

NOTE - Also that the horse which you have suggested and I refer to in FACT "NEVER" even won a STAKES race over 1200m in OPEN COMPANY.

Further to this this history tells us that this horse was known to be hopeless in the wet.

And yet here you are suggesting that it could not only win this years EVEREST but it could in fact street the field.

This is what you posted:

"What do you think Luskin Star, Manikato, Placid Ark or Takeover Target would have done to these B graders. They would have all been rounded up by the turn and then streeted."

Come on gladys take up the "CHALLENGE" please EXPLAIN the totally inane & inept reasoning behind your selection.

Or are you going to continue to make like an ostrich simply ignoring the question with your head in the sand hoping that it is all going to go away if you ignore my polite request for long enough.

Come on gladys please share your supposed superior racing knowledge with the forum and EXPLAIN the justification and reasoning behind your selection to which I refer.
