Was That Horse Disappointing?

Horse racing media comments

We hope our regular readers know they should treat horse racing form comments from the multi million dollar horse racing media establishment with due care and diligence.

Knowing punters talking from their pockets will agree, inaccurate comments about beaten favourites are common from the racing media crowd. How better to win approval!

It's far more popular with most punters who have just lost their money than telling them that the "good thing" put in an excellent run and will pay to follow next start.

A typical example is when the racing media racecaller "expert" tells you the $3.00 favourite, which finished fourth, was "very disappointing" in the following circumstances .

After being a little slow out from barrier nine, instead of settling the favourite, an average Saturday class jockey worked the favourite very hard early to not only make up the lost ground, but to settle outside the leader. Not unexpectedly the favourite weakened a little near the end of the race and finished fourth, beaten by 1.5 lengths.

In our opinion that is not "very disappointing".

How often when a horse misses the start do you see class jockeys like Darren Beadman, Scott Seamer, Danny Nikolic or Michael Rodd work the horse extra hard to settle outside the leader?

Be on the alert if a trainer puts a top jockey on a horse the start after a racing media racecaller "expert" tells you it was "very disappointing".
