      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

  2. how good is arocknroll dance

    Its even Better for the Dance, with a son having only 4 th start wins$ 850000 race saturday. just saying !
  3. Race 8 start at oamaru.

    A great advertisement for all mobile starts. 1 horse refusing to move , 1 kept turning to dislodge cart and several not wanting to stand at all ! As the wwf westler says "You Cant Teach That " !!
  4. Place 6

    i have found only way to take 3 or 4 in sev legs then if you get2 or 3 in it can mean say $30 divy jumping up sharply but some very small returns generally.
  5. Raymond Reekie Ban - March 2020

    agree with Spike, I thought on friday night American Brave and Minstrel boy were doing a RR" and will be similar result as it was. Race7. Despite saileshs excuses both horses in the speed duel had their chances diminished .They went very fast first quarter and were over 10 lengths clear of field. We all know Sailesh is agreat front running driver (we use him for our horsewhen he is available )so circumstances were in line with Rays. As you say the outcomes were the only dfference 2.5 years and "explanation noted" The wet bus ticket was for not using passing lane andnothing for the duel !! Even not realising the passing lane was available as an explanation is a bit "through the looking glass" Then again with incompetence like this I believe sometimes I am attending the Mad Hatters Tea Party. !

    yes Alan you have made good choice. without knowledge of your mare it is an excellent cross being shadow Play and Life sign are pretty well outcrossed and with the emergence of Shadow Play as a potential Super sire especially for young progeny it should prove worthwhile. good luck .
  7. ratings at itheir best.

    with all the doom and gloom in advance of a change , when sufficient horses find their mark at a particular rating and there are sufficient numbers to race "like with like" it starts to register with even the grumpiest of trainers that it night be a good system. A case in point is Invercargill club which have programmed good competitive fields in narrow rating bands eg race 1 rating 40 to 42 for the lowest raters. . even Alex Milne maybe in line for a quinella ! also another 49 to 51 rating exactly the way Kevin Smith and co. imagined it would operate. It can only improve with more horses racing longer and getting opportunities to earn money..Sure its not perfect, a couple of quick wins can mean instant tough competiti, but better than before.

    just like to add to be fair to those interested..... very highly placed in money won are 2 sires available here. in shadow play (2nd)and sportswriter(3rd ) things will change when the big money races come around but these 3 sires could be worth supporting as they are not inthe top echelon fee wise.
  9. how good is arocknroll dance

    first season sire with usa 2 year old crop, A rocknroll Dance is certainly making waves in America. owned jointly by alabar and nevele r . He is now 6th on money won list ahead of noted Bettors Delight and Art Major . This is a huge effort in the competitive 2 year old section. He is even more spectacular when earnings per foal are calculated being 3 rd. Both lists are headed by Some Beach Somewhere who is a standout. It will be interesting to see this great start to a siring career is matched in NZ. (I have no interests in studs or stallion and only small share in a yearling !)
  10. Raymond Reekie Ban - March 2020

    cantab matt, sorry with rius, jcas got mixed up mikes GM of RIu not JCA. just feel someone n authority should accept blame. As well as emplotees at track.
  11. Raymond Reekie Ban - March 2020

    sometimes drivers and trainers say things in the heat of the moment ,even stipes but this flagrant breach of commonsense by the JCA. should itself warrant punishment. all the cafers knew its not possible to inflict an amateur driver with 2.5 yr ban even for gross negligence. or bad decision making during a race.. those responsible or even mike godber must receive some censure.
  12. New Brighton Cup

    1 thing is certain in harness racing is Dream about Me wins at Oamaru this week. She is now ready.of course our brave bookies will offer 1.30 max.

  15. New Brighton Cup

    hi yes happy to explain. Mark stated that prior to the race (all stars web site) that HFIM was more forward than DAM, and that being ayear older now will need 2 or 3 races to really fire. even the commentator thought HFIM was stalking DAM so much he should report him !!. so the scenario was established before the race. What about HFIM going round and having a go for the lead? maybe Dream about me could have got the soft run. We all know they team drive and they know we know, Mostly diff ownerships so no real harm done but very hard for oppn.and I never bet against them .
