    My first punt of the year and getting ready for the Melbourne cup and Addington race day, so $5 each way and a quinella. I do prefer investing on the share market where recently all the runners are winners.

    Well - Percy was 'well positioned' all the way until the 'final announcement' which was slightly disappointing.

    Ran a bit like Heartland this time .... all promise but the write downs ruined the profit result ..... but that was a one off .... and like Heartland Percy will do heaps better next (year)/race

    I did 20 bucks and intend to go big next time (esp if the field is little less classy) because the promise is there and like a range bound stock will break through (the resistance) and win again

    Suppose you guys want to look for another omen bet for next Saturday!!!!!!

    Don't tell Snoopy we are playing the horses .... after his lecture to some of us on another thread telling us not to encourage such behaviour (gambling that is) I'll need to join the Family First Party to fight that evil Morrison guy and his Sky City Convention Centre from happening

    We will have to wait and see whether we can do better backing a horse named Snoopy if there is one.!!!!

    That sounds like the old compensation bet. Wellington win, yee ha and all happy. Wellington lose, got 100 smackers in the back pocket, so can have whatever your tipple is to ease the pain....

    As the active partner in a harness racing tipping/selection service (tipstar.co.nz) I find the similarities between share trading and punting (note that punting race horses isn't gambling, gambling is sitting in front of a pokie machine and losing your money) interesting. I would say that share trading/investing is actually much more volatile due to the "pack" mentality of the markets. Long term investments mimics punting far more so than trading stocks. With anything it comes down to diligence and discipline. lose either and you'll be found out soon enough.

    Interesting stuff benjitara

    Love the harness horses myself. Alas Hutt Park closed down years ago

    Been a couple of syndicates which was great fun

    I am 'investing' in Stunin Banner in the 7th (to win) at Manawatu today .... certainty I reckon. And for a 'punt will take a quinella (and a few trifectas with others for 3rd) with Stormy Breeze because that seems appropriate. Watch Peter Ferguson win a few today as well

    Sent you a email to get the free weeks tips .... better be good

    There is enough chatter in here to warrant such a thread. Some of us also do like the odd fiver on the rugby or the horses. And as the TAB call it investing and dividends there is enough share jargon to warrant inclusion in this forum.

    LOL at winners comment re not telling Snoopy.

    Won well didn't it. I select the Canterbury form and also do the Forbury/ west coast and Nelson circuits while my business partner does the north island and deep south.
    As I stated before turning profits at punting is all about discipline and having a long-term view. the biggest obstacles are always our own characters.
    Pleased to see you get a win.
    keep it up and I may post the odd selection here if you wish
