Blue Arrow Knows

Blue Arrow Knows

Dear Sirs,

Money and criticism have one thing in common. Blue Arrow can take them both — in any quantity. This week the criticism was seen to be unfounded with the incredible success I had with my tips.

What about Charger at $9 for a win and $3 a place. Also Zerox at the Methven Trots being 19/19 in the betting came in and paid $16 a place. It all goes to prove that putting your money where Blue Arrow's mouth is, is much better than a kick from a donkey.

The Trentham Gallops two weeks back are not worth mention, be cause, no doubt, most of you follwed my advice and stayed at home. The Trentham Races are a classic example of how racing can go to the dogs when the Mafia have control over the horses. Bribes of a few sacks of oats or a bale of hay are not uncommon and enough to persuade a horse to stay a good half mile be hind the leaders. Admittedly the Mafia control at Trentham is bad, but the Maori influence at Otaki is by far the worst. You will never see a rich Pakeha leave that course — remember that next Saturday when you have the inclination to head towards Otaki.

For those Maoris heading for Otaki, I suggest you take a close look at Cattleya and also Nabua. Just remember follow the Blue Arrow and you will find the target.
