    • Hi Berri, Your great vision and ideas are appreciated. A lot of us, like yourself, want to move our sport if not forward, at least consolidate and update what is needed to keep thoroughbred racing. Harness Racing has been using all weather tracks for over 50 years, and surely their overseas track consultants could assist Thoroughbred Racing? I have seen a harness track be groomed for World Class Speedway one night and ready for workouts the next day. Cheers. Robert.  
    • HABIBIES HAPPY TO PLAY THE LOT.....must beat some dreamers
    • Methinks the Board should call for an independent audit of the NZRB with special focus on Ms Hughes and the recent deals made with Paddy Power and OpenBet, the US gaming group which no one in the industry has heard of. One would also imagine the Board would be calling for the immediate resignation of Ms Hughes, With the image problems the sport continues to face and plummeting popularity with the NZ public (now less than 3%), it not only has to BE clean it has to be SEEN to be super squeaky clean, so bye bye Glenda, it's been good to know ya (not at all actually). And good luck to Mr Saundry.  My sources say he is a smart operator which is good although Midget is right he shouldn't buy a house because i'm sure he has no idea what a complete bunch of idiots he will be working for/with in Petone.
    • Mattusie - perhaps these machines are 4WD - damned if I know.     I'm no expert, but with all the weight over and beyond the back axle this may negate any advantage of a 4WD. 
    • Jack - forgetting whether a 'disaster" was narrowly averted - do you then think there was "human" error on the part of the starter.   i.e. because the ground was slippery, should he have increased the speed of the mobile a lot earlier and in fact at the point of despatch been some distance ahead of the field due to his speed.     By doing this he would not have had to suddenly apply the power meaning the mobile would have had ample traction for some distance from the start.     Incidentally also remember that each "unit" had two pair of eyes meaning the horses I imagine would not have charged the arms willy nilly.    You see this often when a false start is called under normal circumstances.      The Pukekohe incident was far more "frightening" as it occurred some distance after the start and the mobile actually rotated.
