Just one meeting and the harness following the abandonment of Newcastle.

And it appears there's nothing on SSR.

One of the biggest bets I ever had was in the geelong cup. It was 33/1, was 5 lengths in front, and got beaten by a half head or something. I was on it each way, and won 4 figures, but it still hurts. I can't remember the name, but I can't remember who won the caulfield cup this week.
(correx: 5 figures. doh. can't count)

time to stop counting tokens
There's no getting away from TC. The more you trade the more of it you'll pay. I'd rather just get what I can for free. :)
Have you considered trading by only laying (once your tokens run out)? eg if you're trading the fave, L2B, then you'd open your lay bet normally, and then to get out of your position, you'd lay everything but the fave (at mkt, or reverse mkt, or whatever)

I dont know if it's possible with the way you trade, but might be worth a look.

I started off laying the field pre-race for a fixed payout but it wouldn't work with Aussie racing. The amount you can lay the favourite would be vastly disproportionate to the outsiders, so you'd have to lay the outsiders and midrange horses for higher prices and probably go well below 100%.

Wagga it's not a Racing NSW Turnover Charge market? On racenet it's shown as an NSW racetrack - https://www.racenet.com.au/tracks/nsw/wagga-wagga

If you're referring to tomorrow's meeting, that's a harness meeting. Harness and dogs do not incur turnover charge.

Cheers Derek :mrgreen: Now I noticed that I was looking at a harness Wagga race. It was confusing because tomorrow Wagga has both harness and NSW Turnover Charge markets.

I'll miss being at Flemington this week (except when the weather is miserable, which is often)
