Dandino came 5th! :<

Fiorente was my favourite out of the contenders, based on a brief look at each horse's jockey/colours/number/barrier. If I was a betting-person and had any money to spare... :geek: Oh well.

... and this is why I don't watch the race live. Same thing happened a few years ago and the horse took a while to come to a halt - broken foreleg flapping around. Gave me nightmares for ages. :(
Poor girl. AND just to comment on the d***wad reporter on ch10 news who finished off his report by saying that "...oh well, that's racing". Wonder how he would feel if he went off to work one day, broke his leg, and was euthanized. F***wit. :evil:

I placed a $10 bet at 9:30am on Red Cadeaux when she was $67 to win. I didn't have a particularly good following few minutes after the race ended. :mrgreen:

Very sad to hear about Verema. It's always tragic when something like that happens. About the news reporter making that stupid comment, you can be sure he wouldn't have made it if that happened to a Gai Waterhouse horse.
