      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. M T Pockets

    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.
  4. HOME STRAIGHT

    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.
