focus-ratings-mornoing newsGood morning…

Overall, it was a reasonably happy day for the ratings yesterday.

I’ll go through what happened below…

Hong Kong Ratings

In a strangely quiet day for us at Sha Tin we got 2 winners form the 10 races.

I’ll be publishing the ratings for Wednesday’s meeting at Happy Valley tomorrow morning.

French Ratings

I rated the 4 French Graded races yesterday.

From those 4 races we had 1 top rated winner; in the 16:35 at Auteuil, Kool Has(our top rated horse in that race) won at 7.6 on the French PMU – the British bookies paid 5.90

Today there is only 1 Graded/Group/Listed race in France – the 11.01 at Chantilly.

Other Ratings

Yesterday I published, for the first time…

Ratings for American horse racing.

In the one race that I rated (the 11:59 at Santa Anita) our top rated horse won the race.

A nice start for us.

Something to make you smile…

Cracking The Human Resource Code

“COMPETITIVE SALARY”
Most of our competitors don’t pay much either.

“JOIN OUR FAST-PACED COMPANY”
We have no time to train you.

“CASUAL WORK ATMOSPHERE”
You’ll be here very late, very often — might as well be comfortable.

“MUST BE DEADLINE-ORIENTED”
Your first four projects are already way overdue.

“SOME OVERTIME REQUIRED”
Did we mention that you’ll be here very late, very often? And most weekends.

“DUTIES WILL VARY”
Anyone in the office can boss you around.

“MUST HAVE AN EYE FOR DETAIL”
We have no quality control.

“CAREER-MINDED”
Female applicants must be childless.

“APPLY IN PERSON”
If you’re old, fat or ugly, that position has already been filled.

“NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE”
This job listing is just a legal formality. The position was filled by some executive’s nephew.

“SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE”
Due to consolidation, you’ll be replacing three people.

“PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST”
This company is a total mess.

“REQUIRES TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS”
You’ll have all the responsibilities of upper management, without the pay, title or respect.

“GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS”
Listen to management, figure out what they want, don’t ask too many questions and get the sh*t done.
