Only a mug could love it [Buy]5/10/2013 6:07:41 AM
Only a mug could love it Since the day Archer allegedly walked all the way from Nowra to the winning post at Flemington, our Cup has produced extraordinary stories of Australian culture: equine and otherwise. Framed by brightly coloured silks and flowers as they canter back to the enclosure, horse and rider salute the masses and carve another unique signature on the tree of life. Racing, by nature, has layers of relationships. If it's not the two animals who combine so poetically to run the distance, it will be the trainer, the strapper or the owner/s. Sometimes it's all of the above. They just made a movie about Damien Oliver's win on Media Puzzle. There's a hundred more screenplays in the records, if you care to look. What defines this race is not it's grandeur, but it's egalitarianism. Make no mistake. A long tradition of plodders and one-trick ponies have saluted, far more often than champions. Some cup winners have never won another race. The Melbourne Cup has never been for champions. It's a staying handicap and it reflects the national feeling as much as it stimulates it: mugs and millionaires stand side by side in a herd of hopefuls on the first Tuesday in November. We have seen belligerent jockeys urging one-paced stayers around the track while other jockeys try to connive and manouvre the brilliant horses through the least line of resistance, hoping they can save enough petrol for the dash to the post. Phar Lap and Carbine succeeded. Makybe Diva did it three times. Kingston Town and Super Impose just failed. Dulcify died trying. On and on the stories go, 151 years of them. This year, however, was the defining result of a new era. Gai Waterhouse saw it before they even jumped. The VRC, in it's obsession with international recognition, has now officially sold the farm. Like the puzzled cocky watching foreign mining company touts drill his land for coal seam gas, Australian racing fans watch a host of foreign horses, riders, trainers and owners plundering a cultural icon. Like the farmer, we know the intruders have been invited by powers greater than ourselves. Like the farmer, we know the visitors probably mean well. If we shared a cup of tea we might even enjoy their company. That doesn't make it any easier to take. When 10 of the first 11 horses are not regulars on the Australian circuit; when 4 of the last 6 winners are visitors; when even local owners and trainers are buying purpose-built stayers from Europe to race locally, you know the Cup has irrevocably changed. It's been reported the Cup was the only race on Tuesday that showed a decrease in betting interest from last year. That tells you the punters, at least, are finding it increasingly difficult to work out the form or generate any enthusiasm for names that they are not familiar with. It's a little better now that some of the raiders are having a run or two out here before they contest the Cup. Dunaden did. Red Cadeaux did not. Gai Waterhouse says the answer is to boost the prizemoney and frequency of our local staying races and start breeding horses to run longer distances. De-value the lucky dip sprints for babies like the Golden Slipper and give us a contest for real horses for a at least a couple of minutes' entertinment. For the lairs who are into nothing more than celebrity, fashion and grog all this means nothing. But those mugs will come and go with the Kardashians. For those of us who value the race as a part of Australian culture, where layers of society are brought together in a shared appreciation of the horse and it's relationship to man, Australian racing needs tweaking to make the Melbourne Cup more relevant to us. Now we've spent all that time and money luring them here, we can't just tell the foreigners to nick off. We're stuck with them. We can, however, do what one of our greatest trainers suggests: gear up and compete. Give the locals a hero they can back to win.

portsmouth fighters showed quality "The market did everything Louis Vuitton wanted them to do," Lee said. "They put up (warning) signs and evicted tenants. It's just that they didn't do it as quickly as Louis Vuitton wanted it done." The company should go after the vendors instead but "has not sued a single infringer or counterfeiter" because it knows that flea market vendors come and go or that they don't have deep pockets, he said.. Practice makes perfect. It's not important to meditate for a long time, or to be 100-percent mindful of every bite of every meal. But it is important to be consistent. What successful people do, however, is take responsibility for what they allow into their thoughts. They know that what they think about manifests itself in their reality. What they think they are, what they think they can achieve, what they believe is their destiny is reality. Since childhood, Azharuddin has believed in turning out neatly at a cricket match, be it a hit in the park or a Test. Notice how he always goes out to toss in a blazer. By his manner, he also promises to re-establish sporting standards in the game as well as sartorial ones. Don't enter a contest with a prize that you may either not want or can't win. What do I mean by that? For example, many fashion modeling contests offer modeling contracts with agencies or particular companies. If you have model agency representation, your agent may not allow you to sign such a contract, which would be an awful waste of time and effort if you won.
