An All Star Mile contender has reaffirmed the farce that is the voting system for a $5m race with the name ‘All Star’ in it running second last in a Class 6 plate at Eagle Farm today, beaten close to ten lengths.
Urban Ruler was voted into the $5m All Star Mile Field with help of the horses 600 owners but his run at Eagle Farm suggests the race may need to change the entry requirements to allow for an ‘All Star’ race with the quality of horses set to line-up being borderline embarrassing.
Ten of the fourteen horses in the All Star Mile get voted into the race with the Victoria Racing Club allocated four wildcard entries, the horse with the second most votes was Urban Ruler giving him a guaranteed spot in the field but racing fans around the country think it’s a bit of a joke with the horse beaten 9.25L in a Class 6 Plate at Eagle Farm over the All Star Mile distance of 1600m.
Fans took to twitter to share their thoughts on the horses entry in the race. Some of our favourites are below.
