A win by Splurge in the Group 2 $175,000 Ascot Green Moreton Cup (1200m) at Doomben on Saturday might be enough incentive for connections to pay the late entry fee to gain a start in the Stradbroke Handicap.

Splurge was one of three horses raced out of New Zealand by Te Akau Racing that missed being paid up as first acceptances for the three Group 1 races at Doomben on Saturday week and late nominations fees will have to be submitted for the trio to get back in contention.

Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis will decide after Saturday if a $45,000 late entry fee will be paid for Splurge to run in the Group 1 $1.5m Stradbroke Handicap (1350m).

Ellis has already committed to paying the $18,000 late fee for both Melody Belle for the Group 1 $600,000 BMW Australia J.J. Atkins (1600m) for the two year olds and for three year old  Shocking Luck in the Group 1 $600,000 Channel Seven Queensland Derby (2200m).

A win by Splurge in the Moreton Cup will exempt him from the ballot for the Stradbroke Handicap and the first prizemoney cheque of $112,000 will cover the late fee.

The Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards trained Splurge has had one run in Australia for a ninth to Jungle Edge in the Group 3 $125,000 Taxibox BRC Sprint (1350m) at Doomben on May 20 and Ellis is expecting a better result in the Moreton Cup.

“He didn’t travel at all the other day at Doomben and he copped a couple of bad bumps,” Ellis told Racing Queensland News.

“But he’s come through the race well and Jamie is very happy with him.”

Jason Collett takes over the reins from the suspended Opie Bosson on Splurge who has drawn barrier nine in the original barrier draw but will move in one spot with the early scratching of Bonny O’Reilly who came up with barrier five.

Splurge is well in contention in the betting for the Moreton Cup at $7 with Ladbrokes.com.au who have the Gerald Ryan trained Deploy as the $5 favourite.

    Yep, I got these same emails saying my Paypal account had been “limited” ..weird thing is, I started getting the “account limited” stuff immediately after my Paypal account actually WAS limited for real. I had to send Paypal proof of address, etc. Do spammers have a way of tracking that kind of thing? It was uncanny, cause the language of the spam seemed to coincide.

    LadyP..I know you just read my blog recently, which contains a post on this very subject. Without ruining future entries on the subject, I’ll simply say that anal is an avenue DEFINITELY worth pursuing. I am a big believer in researching stuff, so I actually purchased a book on the subject. It changed my total perspective on anal sex and I highly recommend it! Its called The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women (by Tristan Taormino). The ick factor is what kept holding me back as well. After I read this book, that was all over! Good luck and happy exploring!

    Hi LauraThis behaviour is dominant behaviour, which usually does reduce after neutering. This behaviour is not usually a problem unless he is hurting the other rabbit, and normally a pair of rabbits will eventually sort out the order of dominance between themselves.Make sure that both rabbits get plenty of attention from you, and that you reward him for good behaviour.Richard

    “there is no guarantee in adventure, except that it will be often uncertain and occasionally uncomfortable. ” So true! I’ve worked with the same missions organization as Jeff, and have found time and time again for both myself and others that one of the biggest hinderances of really stepping out is that fear of failure, the inability to guarantee successful results, the inability to control the environment around you. But, I’m just convinced that the uncertainty and the discomfort is worth the living. Great post!

    Good luck turning this all around.The youth is in awe of Obama's kind smile and him being a black guy, your schools have thought your children well that any bad remark about a black person is downright evil racism.The corrupted left is walking hand in hand with the vile and racist crowd of the Afro American community.Unfortunately just a small group of Afro Americans would even care about all the damage that will occur.Good luck once again.
