I love the way the trainer of Black Caviar spends ages in that video slagging off British racing. He has been over here three times and not won and I'm sure we would love him to come back even though he thinks our racing is a load of crap and the Aussies train their horses the right way and have the proper attitude.
i am a great lover of English racing ... but, be careful with sweeping generalized criticism of criticism such as you have just made.
the weight of evidence is overwhelming to support a view that Australian training methods are superior to those of England and the rest of Europe. the evidence is very strong that horses transferring from English to Australian trainers tend to improve markedly and that those going from Australian to English trainers tend to regress quite badly.
truth to tell, though, there is very little difference in the natures of English and Australian racing.
I am not going to argue with your weight of evidence although it would be nice for you to produce it. However he was slagging of our style of racing and saying the Aussie style was better. You are the one saying it actually produces faster horses. As for the "sweeping generalized criticism of criticism".. FCUK RIGHT OFF
where did i write that the "Aussie style ... actually produces faster horses"? i didn't. you made that up.
saying that Moody "slags off" English racing is very weak criticism. d.
I never said he slags off English racing. I said on that video he was slagging off English racing. Fuck once he started the cunt couldn't stop. It was like a fucking therapy session for the cunt.
All the geezer said to him was on the world stage he couldn't think of a horse in the history of racing that had been a champion at 5 furlongs and a mile. Then he went off on one as if that was some affront to Aussie fucking manhood. Here it is right from that moment.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 84#t=1718s
I've never been one to slag off aussies but farking hell. Youz is all cunts
best you change your "avatar"
i have seen that clip 5-6 times
what did Moody say that offended you?
your problem seems to be with the pom interviewer and his smart-arse "who are you?" at the end.
let me give you a clear example of what Moody was saying about Europeans "training the speed out of" horses.
At Talaq was owned by an Arab and trained in England.
he was trained to run 2400 metres and plus.
he was run as pacemaker for his stable mate in the Derby (at Epsom) and hung on to finish fourth.
he was judged by his trainer to be not up to top class and was “sent to Australia”.
trained by Australian methods, he ran the third-fastest 1200 metres ever at Lindsay Park – you’d agree that that is pretty quick?
Hayes wanted to train the horse for the Newmarket Handicap.
the owner and his English racing manager insisted that the horse be trained for the Melbourne Cup.
Hayes went with what the owner wanted.
the horse won the Melbourne Cup.
next preparation, At Talaq ran the legs off just about the best sprinter in the country at 1400 metres.
two starts later he ran the great Bonecrusher to an inch at 2000 metres after suffering an injury when in front with 30 metres to go.
he could not possibly have produced that speed under English training methods.
Moody’s assessment is pretty accurate.
why are you, a pom, upset by Moody blasting an Irishman’s incompetence?
