      TAB 0800 Telephone Bet Number - IMPORTANT!!!!   05/16/2017

      The Telephone Bet Service ceased in July 2016.    For telephone betting via Touchtone call 0800 10 20 33. The old 0800 number now belongs to a different company who are being bombarded with calls. The TAB Helpline is  0800 102 106

      Site Issues Forced Upgrade   08/01/2017

      Hi I was forced to do an emergency upgrade to RaceCafe as we were suffering extended outages.  Everything seems OK now.  You will see a few visual issues with colours etc but I we get round to fixing those over the next few days.  The main priority was to get things up and running again. Cheers Admin

  1. The First Call

    I thought this might have been replayed before the racing started today. General Managers of everything at the NZRB, but nobody in charge of updating this web page: https://static.tab.co.nz/content/trackside/index.html Turned the television on at 10:00. Get On was playing. After that some trial replays. More likely to put you to sleep than motivate you into having a bet. Shutting down phonebet, closing the TAB's, putting the TV shows on when nobody will watch them. Where is this all going?
  2. Taupo - punters graveyard

    @b_popplewell has another tremendous video...and he's in super tipping form. Mofara is up in R3 at Taupo
  3. The First Call

    Not saying they are good tipsters, but it's not easy getting a return when nobody got any of the Counties Quaddie (A bit of a worry that the pool didn't even make it over 20k) and the Riccarton Quaddie paid over 40k.
  4. Rosehill Today

    You can't take these things too seriously. These comments are like Santa's picks. The guy who phoned Trackside Radio saying these were the best thing since sliced bread probably thinks they are great.
  5. Winter Cup

    Does it really deserve to be a Group 3 race? Luke is second or third favourite, but hasn't even won an Open Handicap. Last win was in a 10 k Rating 80.
  6. All Weather initiative

    The punters. They fund everything. That's how racing works.
  7. I think this is a great idea, but why stop at telling punters they can't go outside and have a smoke at the races? I think racing clubs should start limiting punters to a maximum bet of $5 or so to show they also support gambling responsibly and within limits.
  8. Aaron Kuru

    Turning into the Joao Moreira of jumps jockeys.
  9. Best Bets

    They might as well just get rid of it altogether.
  10. Avondale Winners Anyone ?

    Race 5 Loriggio Race 7 Lhoste
  11. PUB TAB

    I don't really think the serious punters are the ones being sought. There is an advertisement playing on the wireless offering a refund of up to $30 if you open an account, bet on a Lions test match and lose your money. That's thirty dollars not three hundred. Compare the odds on offer with Betfair or other agencies and you will soon see it's mug punters not serious bettors being sought. Not saying that is the wrong strategy though. It's also not necessarily a bad idea making it so hard to get money out from an account. Encourages punters to simply keep churning their funds away.
  12. Johnson v Johnson

    That's going a bit far. Jockeys percentages aren't that great.
  13. NZRB borrowing

    Surely this can't be for real. You get a guy from the post office or wherever and he gets a bunch of other guys he worked with at the post office or wherever and they come up with a plan to borrow money to run a business that a teenager should be able to run blindfolded and make money from without borrowing a cent. It's a legal monopoly! I've heard some funny things before, but this has got to take the cake. Where has the video gone?
  14. Johnson v Johnson

    I think you are just trying to get Turny excited. Good jockey going well, but she's $61 to win and that means she's probably a $610 chance. Have you organised an autographed photo of Chris for Turny when the premiership concludes? I think he deserves one after all of his posts. I didn't know Chris was as close to David Walsh's record number of wins as you said he was on radio. How many more exactly?
