Too Much French *** was created by Thor
Okay - We tried the French racing. It doesnt work as well as the others available. Stop cramming all the exotics into French races and give the other venues a chance as well. Swedish pools were much bigger and better. For the size of the fields at France and the results we are seeing, there is little to no value playing exotics at France right now.

Also, what is happening to all the carryovers? I havent seen one exotic pool for these international meetings with a carryover booster yet?

Don`t you prefer good quality racing to Tote Pools?

Next week when there`s 6 Group 1`s in France, let`s play the Harness racing

You always have the fixed odds route

Not saying don't have them there to bet on. Saying keep the exotics on the other centers as well, and actually market them. Currently we have French exotics getting all the billing and punters are speaking with their pockets.

We are just day dreaming with this call.
Its the same old Phumelela who think punters bet watever is on track. They THINK French Flat racing is popular..but honestly the figures from punters are speaking and they have all the info about pools etc. No action whatsover.

WHO ACTUALLY MAKE SUCH (POOR) DECISIONS AND WHATS THEIR DEFENCE ABOUT FRENCH RACING POOR POOLS & CONTINUATION WITH SOMETHING NOT POPULAR TO PUNTERS???
WHO IS THAT PERSON??
NB Dont blame covid-19 please.

Remember we are addicted; we cant just watch without punting. As much there can be quality racing but what return do punters realise when a 18 race field quartet pay less that 1k with 18/1 or more horses all in first 4? Who can invest in that??
Exotics keep us going that the fixed odds multies. We want PAs Bipots Jackpots quartets with value.

Please actually read the post before mentioning the quality of the races. That is not in question.

I think the SA punters have never had an interest in French racing except for the big days.
When it was normal racing,every now and then we would have a French PA to play and the pool battled to get over R1000.
Ngong was more popular.
Not saying it is bad racing but if you want a PA carryover you got a good chance it could happen in France.

.....french racing is not for bookie chasers and bashers as most local punters follow money not class nor anything related to the horse....I find it as a purists paradise and big fields yield those big swingers pity the Trifecta and quartet pools are skint but this is due to none other that the open bet as 80-90% punters are playing with bookies because of the years of tote mismanagement and poor service.

I for one cant get my head around Skandie racing as the commentaries are most irritating and horses on flat surfaces do not seem to be able to gallop they all look like trotters and cripples.

I see that the public is starting to warm up to the French Racing - The pools were good at Bordeaux today for both PA and Jackpot.

Good news... In a few weeks, there will be Irish, and Possibly UK and South African racing, French and Swedish racing will be an after thought for most

Wow again no exotics for French Racing.

Surely we could have had a PA /JP for the meeting at Vichy today

I would suggest that the meetings for exotics are decided a few days in advance to enable system and form guides to reflect correct info. What we see here is the lagged response to the initially poor French pools. Despite now having seen better pools, at France venues, and with results starting to normalize, we have no exotic pools. This should resolve itself soon as I am sure they have seen the improvement as well. Flexibility is so important, but it is currently lacking.

Well we now have our answer on carry overs and it sucks, now not even offering Trifectas and Quartets guess they know better. Bye bye no more from me then.

And if the message is not enough they did not show the Vichy 1st race either. Sorry to say boys horse racing here is now f@cked as they have no plan and no idea how to make a plan.

They blow hot and cold no consistency and punters cant plan ahead, alas they have a frog flat with full exotics betting at Clairfontein today, but sadly I am out of ammo. Besides no word of boosting those exotics with carry overs I and a handful contributed to.
