      Outage   04/11/2018

      Hi everyone sorry we had some hosting issues and had to upgrade to a bigger storage plan. As I am now managing the site and on learner plates it caused some issues. I want to thank Admin for all his help over the past years but we have decided to go our separate ways, I really appreciate all he has done for the site and the help he has given me over the past years. We will be upgrading and adding new features to the site with a new business directory, a special members only with many benefits  and many comps and prizes as we have been doing lately. We hope the new changes make the site more accessible to more, and more industry people feel able to participate in the forum in a transparent basis. There will be something for everyone we hope and look forward to seeing you all in here.Cheers.

  1. New Best Bets Layout

    Just another example of breaking something because it aint broke. I bet you the guy who made these changes spent more time in the 5th form than he has in racing.
  2. TAB

    The TAB's stance on this I believe was that he still had a chance of winning it, BUT and a bloody big BUT is that the odds must have changed. They are in the business of calculating odds and its obvious the odds would have been five times the $2.20 odds. Very poor show TAB, very poor show.
  3. Positives at Nelson

    I agree , it would be highly unlikely as well as dumb for the reasons you suggest. Interesting is the fact that it is no longer a prohibited substance in sport.
  4. Bonecrusher Statue

    Morrie Holmes I think.
  5. Jessie Duke

    Absolutely stunning.

    I have raised this topic before about 3 years ago and still maintain that for a piece of gear this would have to have an amazing win record if for no other reason than the Allstars seem to use them on 90% of their horses. The Dunns are another stable. Fortunately you can see the runners before the race. Anyone have any stat's ? I think the would be quite conclusive. https://www.horsetalk.co.nz/2014/05/22/nasal-strips-help-horses/

    In the early 70's he had the horse stabled at his house near Waikato University , I used to get a lift to Alex Park when at Uni, I don't recall any wins but a few placings. I think it was more of a hobby after retirement at that stage.
  8. TFC BBQ

    O'h I get them regularly 2 or 3 a week ......... this is the basis of my criticism
  9. TFC BBQ

    I continue to wonder what their function actually is. They are all employed by the TAB when you peel it back............ who would hardly want consistent success from the punters. Or is that it , they are hand picked for their inability to pick a winner ? As I am writing this I note today that the first quaddie picks today would have set you back $45 + $81 + $192 and they flew the team up from ChCh to give you the $192 loss missing the 1st 2 legs. They are a running advertisement for phoning problem gambling OR at least firm proof of how bad the Quaddie bet is.
  10. TFC BBQ

    Apparently the TFC crew are to celebrate their WINNINGS from the last 10 weeks punting by shouting a BBQ at the Matamata tracecourse after the workouts on Thursday 15th ( TBC ). WINNERS J.Tan $622............ $329 loss after 20 weeks tu Lang $461.............. $614 profit " " " A.Rodley $315............ $7 Loss " " M.Cross $26...............$521 Loss " " M.Guerin " What Paddy Shot at in A$ " Should we remind them that the results for the previous 10 weeks are still in the back of our minds ( as reported on the TAB website 06/01/18 J.Tan -$951 ( Loss ) Stu Lang $153 ( ++ ) A.Rodley - $322 ( Loss ) M.Cross - $547 ( Loss ) M. Guerin " Who Dares " Cares Of course the irony here is that THE OVERALL WINNER AFTER 20 NWEEKS IS THE ONLY SELECTOR THAT DOESN'T APPEAR ON THE SHOW. Enjoy your sausages chaps.
  11. Lazarus

    We run the risk of running round in circles here.

    Will be interesting to see how he comes back after such a long break but he did need it to strengthen up. Big ask but interesting watch ........... LOOKS GREAT !!
  13. Buy Air NZ shares

    I think you will find a fair contingent swanning it up in Seeedknee for some piss average coverage of the Miracle Mile night.
  14. joke thread


    At Riccarton following Race 4 Mark Cookson in interviewing trainer of winner Vividredsky asked " Any particular thoughts so far about where the horse might go to now ? " ....... " YEAH IF ANYONE WANTS TO BUY IT , IT CAN GO ANTWHERE "
