The weight of your moolah saw the beast go out as second favorite, but it ran like Douglas Bader in leg irons.And tet it be here recorded that the Moonee Valley Racing Club Committee is a disgrace. Cocktail party (11 a.m. - 1p.m.)at which party pies, party sausage rolls and grilled sausages with tomato sauce was the fare on offer. Have seen better and more exciting tucker served up at sausage sizzles outside Bunning on a Saturday morning.For Gorsakes it was her Maj's 80th and there was not so much as a whiff of a cucumber sanger, let alone a warm gin and tonic. (Then again we don't ever want the word gin mentioned again do we punters?)
