Have you ever come across a more self serving bunch than Lincoln Farms.

They can twist a story any which way they want.

Cry like  babies when it goes against them but come across as condescending propagandists when it falls for them.

Just watched Mick Guerin talking about this on the Box Seat. He has been talking a bit of sense recently but he is way off beam with his support of the running of the Franklin Cup. 

His argument you have to run the race to instill confidence for the future is valid but said in a vacuum of information. How can you say it should run but never mention the fact of the 10% harness funding hole. You just can't take him seriously when this is not mentioned.

Confidence? goodness, run a race so you won't lose tightly assessed horses overseas, well, the industry will be losing plenty of horses because of the 10% reduction.

Should be a real betting attraction that race.Why not loosen the class for the Franklin Cup,attract a bigger field and put the good ones on handicaps,that would create a bit of interest imo

I totally agree, but its just not  the way nowadays. One just couldn't have their precious having to chase down a field from a back mark, dear me .

Well it was a 2 mile stand like the Nz Cup for a lot of years NG. now at 2700m these days and COPY THAT (your double Nz Cup Champion) is off 30m or about 3 seconds behind the other 3 runners. Won't be a problem for when he tacks on will only be 4 lengths from the lead with the small field . So will pounce.

You might remember Delightful Lady ? a grand mare in the 80's who was loved like WINX was at the gallops. I was there when she won the Franklin Cup off a whopping 55m behind. They made so much noise/roar in the grandstand it was like the MCG on Grand Final Day.
