  1. Michael Walker welcome back

    Think you are being a bit hard and living in the past there, anyway Puccini was the horse....won the Derby on the Saturday 2014. Ozzie programme at the time called "Off The Rails" filmed their programme at a luncheon at Ellerslie, they interviewed MW and he alluded to the fact he may have swung the lead a bit on the Saturday. Funniest thing that day was George Simon and Miracle doing the Haka in front of a room of very amused Kiwis!!!!
  2. sibling rivalry

    There are 2 full sisters in R7 at Tauheranikau on Tuesday, with a bit of rain they are capable of top 3 finish.
  3. Just wondering what the syndicate "makeup" is for this horse for Veitch to clear 60k, or does someone have to sit Tony down and explain things??. The after race and presentation scenes were great and I can see a newbie to racing may have heard $600k to the winner of the million dollar dash and 10% in the same sentence and that is what he has worked on....or have I got this wrong or perhaps better to pose the question/s like this. A) What is the winners purse for the KM?. B)What is the share of A that goes to Jockey,Trainer,Syndicate Administration?. C)How many shares were allotted on this filly & at what fee? D)Answer to C) would have to be less than 10 for this $60k to be remotely possible? E) Someone has put Tony crook on the figures? I am not having a go at TA or Veitchy, just this Headline does not add up for me, and if I am correct and there has been a mistake, we do need new blood (as Veitchy says in last paragraph) but not at the risk of misleading them that the asphalt of Ellerslie is paved with gold.

NEW ZEALAND Tony Veitch earns $60,000 in a couple of minutes as horse Avantage wins at Karaka Million 27 Jan, 2018 8:50pm Quick Read Avantage's win in the Karaka Million event has seen Tony Veitch win more than $60,000.

Photo / Race Images Veitch bought into the horse last year. In October, Veitch told horsebetting.com.au he didn't have a "clue" about how the horse racing industry prior to buying in. "I think I'm symbolic of a new breed that are coming on board because it's something different, something new. "I wanted some different stuff in life. I was getting bored with the work/life balance and so I decided to buy in. "It's not about the money, it's just about having that fun knowing you have a stake in the run."
  4. Karaka Million 3yo

    Liz, Kapoor had the audacity to get going again and would have been close and then got taken out again, originally I thought it was SC that nhad done it but was Ever Loyal. Oh well go again next week
  5. Karaka Million 3yo

    I'm convinced the way she got going after Embelished smacked her she would have been at least 3rd, the head on is interesting though and hey its a million bucks and if she was yours would you not have a go?
  6. Karaka Million 3yo

    Yes had a huge lash on Kapoor for the place. gets flattened by Embellish and then Savvy Coup...if Kapoor is 4th I might have a chance

    I rest my case. Well put P4P!!

    Oh dear Brett! , it is actually buddess and advice . That is some attitude you appear to have there. I am just waiting for you do display your wealth of knowledge in this manner when you lock horns with more contributors on here!. Anyway back to the point I found David Walsh excellent when used for knowledgeable comment over the Riccarton carnival, given he has graced probably all the tracks in NZ why would he not be utilised more?.
  10. Te Rapa Race 1

    No Dockers I do not think it would have won....but a reprimand is a bit light as it may lead to a rider saying when questioned about dropping their hands in future to claim "oh sir I knew the other horse coming would beat me anyway". It opens a can of worms for the future and sets a bad example. Just my thoughts
  11. Te Rapa Race 1

    A REPRIMAND seriously??.... beaten 3/4 length....what a bunch of soft cockles....I bet OP boson wishes those stipes were around/on duty a few years back at Tauranga on the Cup day!!!!!. No wonder we are smirked at by other racing jurisdictions!!.
  12. Te Rapa Race 1

    Was that the racing, girls in shorts or the weather???
  13. Te Rapa Race 1

    Correct N1MUE I saw your post and thought thats a good confirmation of what I had thought as I had backed it at the same time I backed Corleone, the place divvid has brought me even on both bets as they were substantial Pheww!!. Anyway upward and onward.
  14. Te Rapa Race 1

    OK got that terribly wrong DD, so will have to look at the race again but Corleone stopped pretty badly after leading easily. Still i'm happy to take the loss and go again next time.
  15. Te Rapa Race 1

    Personally I can not entertain her, i think there are horses there with fewer starts and more upside like Corleone, Havoc and Jo Buck.....I'm no expert but just like to rate each horse against another in a race.
