    Myself and my wife are going on a seven month trip to China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and South America (Mainly Chile, Peru and Argentina) leaving tomorrow(6/10/06).<br>We plan to go racing in Hong Kong and Melbourne at least. If anyone has any wisdom about interesting racing anywhere in those countries please let us know on here- I’ll be logging in occasionally to see how the jumps season is going.

    Nice one..

    Happy Valley is a must of course

    My brother toured South america. Suggested the Buenes Aires is a super city (Santiago Chile is less so)

    By all accounts you will love Peru

    Do they have llama racing?

    carvillshill,

    You’re very lucky, I really hope you have a lovely time.   Watch for flies in Melbourne they can be a nuisance, might need one of those funny hats !!

    Sandown Park racetrack in Melbourne is nice,  it’s been redeveloped a bit since I was there but they have jump racing too which may interest you, also some big races in November just after Flemington if you’re there at that time.  

    Hope you’ll keep us all informed occasionally during your travels. :)

    Sounds like the trip of a lifetime!  You might just catch the Nakayama Grand Jump in April – if you’re planning that far ahead.

    Howdy all<br>Currently in Hiroshima, fly to Cairns tomorrow- will be there for the Melbourne Cup.<br>Happy Valley was enjoyable- the tote pools had me gasping- on a humdrum Wednesday night there was well over a million euro in the win and place pools- no wonder there are big computerised sydicates at work there. There seemed to be a frenzy of betting in the last moments with wholesale changes in the odds- maybe these are the syndicate bets coming in?<br>The track is as sharp as Chester, but right-handed- I can see why the prestige contests are held at Sha-Tin- if you’re not drawn on the fence in a sprint here life is very tough. Roll on Oz, have to ensure I get to a TAB to see the Cup!

    Hey Carvills!

    Good to hear you’re having a great time on your trip.

    Looking forward to future updates/reviews.

    Slightly jealous,

    Steve
