A Podcast

Hello everyone

I tried to do a Podcast today – actually, I successfully did a podcast. It was funny, insightful and entertaining, but unfortunately I have no bloody idea how to get the finished file on the internet for people to listen to! It is an mp3 file on my itunes, so if anyone knows how to get that file / sound onto this here blog, please send me a message and tell me!

Magic Millions 2017

Hello everyone

Wisdom

Motown pioneers Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong (they are both worth more research), wrote the classic track I Heard it through the Grapevine in 1966. The song was made famous firstly by Marvin Gaye in 1968 and by Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1970. One lyric in the second verse states ‘believe half of what you see, and none of what you here.’ This advice rings true in regards to racetrack gossip! In the punting caper, it is important to have your own opinion and do not simply rely on what you hear from others. If a person was to bet in accordance with every rumour, tip and piece and advice they received in one day at the races, they would be broke after the first! You hear it everywhere, from trainers, jockeys, websites, television shows, radio programs; this horse has improved, this horse needs more ground, this horse worked well, this horse is looking to win, this horse trialled poorly, this horse trialled like a bomb, the jockey has chosen this horse and so on, my uncle owns this horse and recons it is due! This time of year especially, every horse in every race is given some sort of chance by someone of prominence, and you can’t back them all!

A Turf Fascination tries to give advice based on a horse’s true potential, not just on racetrack gossip based on media reports. But the moral of the story is, if you have an idea on a race, stick to it. Don’t get influenced by what others say! Because what happens???? You go to place a bet on the horse you have chosen, and then see something on the television or hear someone in the bookie line or remember something you have read in the paper, so you change your bet. And of-course, your original tip salutes. Trust your instincts, but if you have no firm opinion, A Turf Fascination is a good place to start!
