Ok, ok, this just has to be reported.

We know there are certain things considered red flags when having a bet.

For instance, on a very wet track, backing a horse that draws 20 in a field of 20 isn’t a preferred wager.

Backing a horse that draws that deep and is having its very first race start makes it even harder to come at.

Backing a horse from out there, on debut who ran 8th of 8 at its only barrier trial, almost surely rules it out completely.

And, you just wouldn’t back a horse from out there, first start, horrible trial who will be ridden by a 4kg apprentice, would you?

Oh…that apprentice is having just her 3rd ever ride in a race today.

Let’s not forget that her only ride at this track, that apprentice finished … 8th out of 8.

No chance I hear you say that you’d back a horse like that.

Well, that combo of betting NOs happens in race 3 at Taree today with a horse called UNUSUAL DIRECTION (Unusual Suspect-Miss Direction) to be ridden by that brand new apprentice Maddy Owen.

The 4YO, who was beaten 18 lengths in that barrier trial at Port Macquarie, is trained by Trent Potts…wait, what’s that, you haven’t heard of the trainer?

This would be because…Unusual Direction is the VERY first starter he has ever produced at the races.

Good luck to Trent saddling his first ever runner today.

Good luck to young Madeline Owen who is yet to ride a winner, but most of all… good luck to you if you back this horse!

He was $61 in morning markets with Palmerbet.
