      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. Harness Racing Names

    The most recent TB Lazarus is a 9yro gelding by Keeninsky who last raced in 2014 so there won't be another Lazarus in the NZ studbook for a few years to come. Current TB naming rules are: Rules for naming your horse There are some rules to bear in mind when naming your horse: Names must be no longer than 18 characters, including the spaces Don't apply for names whose spelling or pronunciation is similar to names already registered A name cannot be reused until 15 years has passed since the foaling of a similar named horse Names for broodmares cannot be used until 12 years has passed since that name last appeared in the Stud Book Names of winners of Group One races are protected Names of stallions cannot be used until 15 years has passed since they last appeared in a studbook.
  2. Congratulations to Tracey Bliss and Never Stop Dreaming. Two dead heat wins in a row. An unusual feat. Can anyone remember this happening in years gone by? I can't.
  3. Waikouaiti gone

    The grass looked quite long to me. Whether or not this contributed to the problem, I'm not sure.
  4. Somewhat Ironic

    We had a great day out at Stratford yesterday, very relaxing atmosphere and a decent crowd on course.The track was in good condition and the overcast weather made it very pleasant temperature-wise. Good family-oriented picnic racing. Well done to the SRC
  5. Stop it, Tony!

    I believe you are correct, Mardy I think he used to be known by another name (which I won't state out of respect for his privacy). If so, he was a T Lee protege many years ago, calls/has called heaps of trials and is a radio DJ IMO, he is a very accomplished race caller. Happy to listen to him anytime.
  6. Just Reminiscing

    Really? From memory, I believe Jim O'Malley conceived the idea for the race which was first run in 1981 at Levin. I believe it was known as the Levin Turf Classic until 1989. Correct me if my memory is incorrect :-)
