      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. octogenerian Drivers

    The old drivers you refer to are merely a relic of the way things were done in the past and are a dying breed. Amateur owner,trainer and drivers. Probably bred them as well. Of course they should be given a use by date for both health and safety reasons but many would not participate if their licenses were revoked. its a toss of the coin whether that would be a good or bad thing. Imagine no Luc or Ivannn
  2. O'Shea and Godolphin part company....

    An inquiry into Godolphin's alleged failure to report a case of strangles during John O'Shea's tenure as head trainer has been adjourned until August but Plumptre tendered his resignation after 16 years with the organisation on Monday. "I have been away for a short period overseas and have had time to reflect on the ongoing issue of strangles that was reported to Racing NSW stewards two months ago," Plumptre said in a statement. "In view of the fundamental failure to report the issue at the time, it is the best option for Godolphin if I stand down. "The reputation and integrity of Godolphin is the most important aspect of what we do and this issue has impacted on that reputation." Plumptre's departure from Godolphin is the latest in the upheaval at the top of the Sheik Mohammed-owned organisation. O'Shea departed as Godolphin's Australian head trainer in May while international racing manager John Ferguson left the business last month after trainer Saeed bin Suroor revealed deep rifts in the regime in a media interview. Godolphin will announce a replacement for Plumptre "in the near future". Taking one for the team is how its being described offshore. More to this surely
  3. Trainers in Canterbury revolt!

    Very good and straight to the point.LO. Interesting that All Stars are not involved in any of this nonsense. Perhaps there is a message there for a few trainers.
  4. Trainers in Canterbury revolt!

    Chance would be a fine thing LO. Journeyman Jones is always moaning about something which is why local media and Greg cant wait to interview him for his latest negative thoughs/comments. Given the way his team has gone at Addington for a while its not surprising he is unhappy given he has to travel south for results
  5. CWJ Contessa Vanessa

    CONTESSA VANESSA (C Johnson) – Reacted poorly when struck with the whip passing the 100 metres. Rider C Johnson was reminded of his obligations in that he must ride his mounts out fully to the line when circumstances permit him to do so.
  6. Hong Kong Season

    Im inclined to think he has not been there recently nor ever worked in the Asian hot spot that it is.
  7. Hong Kong Season

    Most of all its squeaky clean on a racing integrity basis. Even the slightest doubt or misdemeanor and your gone.
  8. Songlike.......

    Back to your brilliant best,. shame BB did not see it live cos im pretty sure he is in Fiji

    Because the RIU are lazy and useless?????????
  10. Positives at Nelson

    I'm sure everything will eventually come out in the wash as it usually does withe our bold RIU. Also i,m quite amazed as to why they asked Rennell for his comments and his response. Surely the matter is only in the investigation stage
  11. Positives at Nelson

    So the plot thickens a little bit more for the offending stable. Stable visit from our bold RIU in recent times who have had previous positive tests in years gone by.
  12. Pokie Fraud

    Probably arrogant enough to, Where are all his supporters from here now.- hiding after getting it all wrong i suspect.
  13. Pokie Fraud

    And here is the outcome of the court proceedings for these scumbags Prominent Marlborough racing figure Michael O'Brien has been sentenced to four years and six months jail, for taking millions of dollars through gambling machine frauds. The 58-year-old has just been sentenced at the High Court in Wellington, alongside Kevin Coffey, 60, who received 12 months home detention for his lesser role in the frauds. Crown lawyer Grant Burston said O'Brien's "selfish and greedy" offending netted him millions of dollars over several years. The court heard that O'Brien was a key figure for both pokie machine venues, and racing clubs that wanted to receive funding grants from the pokies. "He directed the trusts grants application process," Burston said. "Michael O'Brien was running a dishonest scheme for which he received a backhander of a third of the grants given out while he was running the scheme. "Mr O'Brien's offending was selfish and greedy. The racing clubs believed they had no other choice but to pay him a third funding, if they were to get any grant money at all. "That was the trap they felt they were in, that they otherwise wouldn't get the pokie funding that they needed."
  14. Bring Back Brodie

  15. Positives at Nelson

    Or you could actually find out something for yourself. Eclipse has already stated what he knows and he was merely replying to my opening post on this thread. As for the defense part of your post, legally admissible evidence is obviously not your strong suit.
