    • Nancy A. Vanier and Cartwright Thoroughbreds' consistent Streamline—never worse than third in Oaklawn Park’s last 10 two-turn stakes races for older fillies and mares—reaffirmed her affinity for the Arkansas oval Feb. 17. View the full article

    • Maybe if they raced at Darwin the TAB may be interested - but then again......
    • Of course the little local interest has got nothing to do with the dates these clubs are given to work with.  Timaru used to have quite a few Sunday dates, that coupled with the Phar Lap Market days got a reasonable number of people on course. Now that it is mostly Fridays they don’t stand a shit show of getting people on course, unless it is between Christmas and New Year.  Losing the weekend date also puts pressure on a volunteer committee - it has gone from something to do at the weekend to taking a day off work to make a Raceday happen. Yes a lot of these courses are run down and have dated facilities but imagine the squillions it would cost to build one of these racecourses from scratch. Both Timaru and Ashburton have taken Riccarton dates so a race day would happen when Riccarton was out of commission  - what would have happened if those courses weren’t there to run the races at?  
    • It is good  that Trackside provides the pedigrees of horses winning feature races. However, It would be great if they delved thoroughly into the pedigrees rather than just giving the Sire and Dam of the winning horse. For example after yesterday's Avondale Guineas if they had researched more fully they would have seen that the grand dam of On The Rocks is Refused The Dance who is the Dam of VRC Derby and Melbourne Cup winner, Efficient. I used to enjoy Alexander Fields how he did his home work on breeding and used to go into the pedigrees of well bred horses prior to races..
