      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

    Gore race 11. J Cox on Machie Mach. Hit from a long way out. However do think he was keeping the horse in the race , but faded late.
  2. Question of the week re: P Lamb

    When the horses are milling around at the 1950m assembly points, ie. by the stabling exit/ entrance to the track Mr Lamb is always amongst the horses and do recall at times he has definitely not been wearing a helmet. Must also point out also some media folk don't often wear them too.
  3. Victoria Cup tonight

    Who's your pick tonight? Lennytheshark for the win and Mr Mojito for a place here. Also heard that Chicago Bull is missing the race because of his below par 3rd last week and travel from WA was gonna cost 28k. Seems a bit expensive but wondering if anyone on here knows travel costs interstate.

    When is it on again, only seen the first edition so far
  5. TAB Apprentice Competition

    4 firsts so far for me
  6. speed cameras

    Average night ?? Always good punting at Forbury, good dividends, just a matter of whether you win big or not.
  7. standardbred tv programme

    Weaning is a little more complex than that. Even preparing them for weaning is too. Depending whether the foals are at a stud or at home there are varying ways or methods used. I will tune into the the programme soon to see what is shown so I can comment more on it. Everything you do hands on is geared towards the breaking in of the horse and the final objective of being safe and the horse becoming a stanardbred racehorse.
  8. Was a matter of time.

    Reba Lord found it's way into the Purdon Barn eventually. I remember it starting in a standing start at Addington against a top field and someone said it's got no chance (it breaks at the start). I knew better because I was there at Alexandra Park when it started in behind the tapes for the first time and he ran 2nd. Guess who got the chocolates that night at Addington - I was all smiles. Going back to the Reba Lord's sire ; I remember backing Lord Magic at Addington , both by Lordship. $100 E/W , went down by a nose but paid handsomely.
  9. Was a matter of time.

    Remember back in the early 90's Auckland had Brady (Franco Ice) , Mangos (Lord Lynbar) and Hillier (The Bru Czar) versus all the Purdon runners.

    2nd, margin was a nose after sitting parked last lap.
  11. Christian Me

    Debut at Yonkers now
  12. 2017 Sires Stakes

    Yeah, what was the Purdon trio that were prominent at the Jewels ?
  13. StandardBred

    Second season can't be far away either ...
  14. Harness racing Thursday - lack of

    Probably the fact that they reduced the quantity of races this season and number of horses avaliable. August has recently been bad for numbers. Hopefully a review will change things next season. Has been discussed on this forum in the past.
  15. breeding season

    For sons of CC I would look at Alta Christiano or Raging Bull. Gotta Go Cullect if he was to stand. All three have great maternal families. I like breeding something quite different but there is a lack of variety of sire lines in NZ as opposed to Aussie. Wally Walton , Totally Ruthlesss and Sting Lika Bee fly the flag for Big Towner"s line.
