    What a poor turn out

    The Bunbury cup consolation race. 7 runners what a joke for the prize money.

    51 in the bunbury cup at the 6 day mark,20 run so you would have thought there would have been more considering the entry fee.no wonder it costs so much to own a racehorse.
    Very disappointing.

    Yes, I saw that earlier and wondered about it. There has to be a chance the sponsors will pull the plug on the consolation race if it happens again.

    I presume the ground is to blame but plenty of good horses need fast ground. They could easily be picking up some reasonable money by running.
    Two's company, three's allowed.

    And it's not as if it's rock hard ground, they do water
