      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. Taupo Friday

    Then you get some half educated horse who holds everyone up and impacts on the start time of the races, or worse still something happens with a trial horse and the race meeting gets called off. Might be alright for very experienced horses , but there are many of them around in the trials.
  2. Video on racing speech. Worth a watch

    Of course the real concern if a Party like NZ First are successful is what they do with any financial assistance given to the industry. Surely don't want a situation like last time where the money was fretted away on top end stakes and had very little beneficial impact to the industry. Infrastructure and base are where any funds should be applied and a long term approach taken, the industry is so broken therer are no quick fixes!
  3. Counties PR Disaster.

    "Longbow of the year "- right there!
  4. Small Successful horses

    Dark Mirage first US Filly to win the Fillies Triple Crown.
  5. He certainly does. Golden Horn appeals to me , a champion racehorse who has a lot of his sire about him , really hope he makes the grade.
  6. Still the great ones manage to win the Arc Montjeu, Treve, Dancing Brave, Alleged to name but a few and its aesthetically pleasing to watch as well.
  7. Explanation Please, Anyone!

    No they look a bit silly with 5 & 6 win horses running in that grade.
  8. Check this out pure bliss!
  9. Well if that's the criteria then I can see how they have come up with that conclusion, but I wouldn't get up at 3am in the Morning to watch a George Main but do for the Arc. If you get my point.
  10. Well to date you'd have to say building tracks where the people are has been an abject failure.
  11. For real? The George Main & Irish Champions ahead of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe ??
  12. Cambridge Jump Outs

    Supposed to be published here http://www.nzracing.co.nz/RaceInfo.aspx#bm-meeting-jumpouts You'd certainly think clubs of that size and magnitude would be leading the way in providing results and information for punters.
  13. Sandown Today

    Agree, some fairly decent racing on show and great to see Lankan Rupee back racing competitively. A lot can happen up that Sandown straight.
  14. A bit of leg

    I find a number of the Showcasing stock seem to throw a bit of leg. Might be just the ones I've seen but they mostly seem leggy types to me.
  15. I can't stand smoking! But I have to say I haven't experienced a problem with smokers on a race course or a pub for that matter for years. I can understand the alignment with the cancer foundation etc, but I simply do not have a problem with respectful smokers having their cigarette in a designated area it seems to have worked well for years. This appears to be a real beat up and is the beginning of pandering to social groups that will never stop and racing may pay a very dear price for it in the long run.
