Blackbook + jockey weights

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*Hi all. I am trying to get as much up as possible this week leading into a full Millions preview. You will have to bear with me with next week as I am on a little break but will still hopefully have fresh content to check in for, and of course any tips that might pop up. I will also re-post some feature articles people have asked for. Hoping to have a date locked in for the BRISSYRACES day at the Pineapple Hotel as well!

Here are some of the BLACKBOOK horses over the last week.


STARGRILL BOY– At a similar grade he can notch one up shortly.

TALES OF FASHION– This horse and Burleigh Bullet were up on a pace that didn’t suit. Happy to follow this horse next run.

RUDY– Yes he is getting expensive but this was horrible to watch if you were on, no luck at all.

PRIMED TO WIN– Another with no luck. Back up and he will go close.

FLIGHT KING– Going places and this was a great win!

HI SON– Could not have done anymore after nearly being in another suburb most of the trip…

LEVER LEVER– Won in Murwillumbah Sunday and looks to have a future. May need another prep but prepared to follow next run.


***One BLACKBOOK RUNNER Wednesday:

Pie Lady – Eagle Farm R4 No.11 (1200m):


**Another issue come up Saturday at the Gold Coast.

Before I start let me say I try to keep this site as positive as possible and help everyone in the industry where possible, and I don’t beat up on jocks because it’s a bloody tough gig.

Many of the followers however are punters and you always have to take punters into the racing equation as that is where much of the money comes from.

I mentioned this to people and some contacted me about it also on Saturday.Question mark

On the weekend we had jockeys weighing in over 1kg in excess of their weight after running a narrow 2nd, and two other senior jockeys turn up and not being able to ride their mounts as they couldn’t make the weight… They were fined between $400-$500. I can bet there was a lot more than that lost by a lot of punters who took them in the jockey challenge.

What is the answer though? I have no idea, but surely it has to be available to punters as early as possible? I only heard of it during the races, but I am happy to be corrected if it was earlier than that.

As for being a kg over and going down by 0.2L well that is one that is better of holding the info back until punters leave the track!

At the end of the day the Jockey Challenge is another way to do your cash and another bet type for punters to put a line through because of so many variables.


Australia Day!!
