With Mauritius continuing the trend of small fields, 2 races are included in the Jackpot Quick Mix from Mauritius.

Some credit though they covering all races with exotics from Menangle starting from Race 1 at 10h22 although some fields are small compared to other Australian meetings at the same time.

Please keep this up everyday, not just a once off thing!

Would love to read an interview with the team responsible for choosing which venues to cover local exotics on the logic used here - As Muhti pointed out, clearly clueless, but trying I guess. Probably received the feedback to have more local exotics, then decided to put it in at 5am Wyong.
You choose to have local exotics from a meeting starting 5am like there is even the remote possibility of someone deciding to play quartets at that hour.
Then after 10AM, when you do have really good pools, you only have local exotics on ONE venue the entire morning, and only start the Launceston exotics from 11.20am, when the morning is almost done, when there was opportunity to have on both Launceston and Cranbourne all morning from at least 10am.

This weekend is the biggest meeting at Parx including two Group 1s, The Pennsylvania Derby and the Cottillion. The Kentucky Oaks winner, Secret Oath, runs in the Cottillion. Can they please broadcast this meeting. They already have the rights for Parx.

Parx, from a TV spectacle, is dreadful.

What a pity that they not covering Parx biggest meeting. In the Parx Derby Group One winners, Cyberknife (Arkansas Derby and Haskell), Taiba (Santa Anita Derby), White Abarrio (Florida Derby) line up and the third and fourth in the Kentucky Derby Zandon and Simplification also run. In the Cottillion Kentucky Oaks Winner, Secret Oath runs. This meeting was covered last year. During the Classic races, Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, Parx was shown on that Saturday. We getting all the races for Woodbine though. During the launch of 4Racing it was advertised that the best racing from around the world will be shown. Clearly the person in charge does not know Group One Racing. You got the broadcast rights but fail to make any effort to show it but broadcast their meetings previously on Saturdays.

You can't drop Belmont or Chelmsford. Perhaps the times did not work as well as with Woodbine, for the 3rd slot.

There is no UK night meeting today Wednesday. Why are the operators only covering Parx tonight but no Gulfstream Park. The best jockeys and trainers are currently stabled at Gulfstream Park.

Do not be surprised that they do not cover the biggest meeting at Gulfstream Park, the Florida Derby next month.

The morning Jackpot 1 first leg closes at 10h33, the third leg will be run at 11h00. There is then a 45 minute break to the last leg at the Vaal.

Why is the morning Jackpot starting so early? The Australian venue's that is included in the Quickmix last races is also way past the first local race. Numerous times the local first race has not been the last leg. The later the start time of the morning Quickmix will also lead to higher pools which equates to better take outs for the operator.

I am not a fan of Australian harness racing but due to the Jackpot Quickmix I will normally play swingers, trifectas, etc with the numbers that I have in the Quickmix for the meeting offered by the operator in the morning which has these exotic bets. There is no morning meeting offered today. Paying for the visuals but not capitalising to their fullest to get their best returns.
