  5. NZ Cup & Galaxy Thoughts

    Not to far away now, any thoughts or tips? The Roberts team will be strong, like to see Panel Beater race and see how he goes on Addington. I did notice out off all entries for Thursday only one North Island trainer. I do know that more coming from auto entry into the semi's.

  7. Question

    What was considered a large team back in the day with the greys? Lets say going back to QE2 days or when there was a track in Wellington. All before my time. Had a conversation the other day with a fellow owner and got me thinking.

    Cheers, looks a interesting prospect if he hits our shores.
  9. Future Of Punting

    I put this up on kiwidogz but thought this deserved it's own thread. As an avid punter who is 40yrs old and when I mean avid, I follow the greyhounds not the other codes. I allow myself currently $20 a week for my share of fun, don't smoke, don't go out as we have a young family ( next planned outing is Nov for a wedding ) and I work in a bottlestore so I have that angle covered. The bonus top up of $10 the last three Thursday has helped my entertainment as well. However I'm about the only one of my age group that I know that enjoys a punt on a weekly basis with Thursday's my current favourite punting day. I'm sure when my two pups start racing then Tuesday will be on the cards as well. The N.Z.R.B. I would say has lost at least two generations of new punters but probably more than likely three. Ohhhh I hear the cry's from them, casino's/lotto/pokies, bollocks they got lazy and didn't invest in the next generation coming through with the times. With my job I see a lot of the 18-25 age group week in week out and work with a year three university student over the holidays. Apart from the Melbourne Cup rarely is punting talked about throughout the rest of the year. The uni student hears of my punting loses, wins and my ownership but after questioning him he and a few of his mates in Dunedin have been to Fourbry once of twice since he has lived there. He does have a punt like his mates but it is on sport. Explaining trifectas, quaddies and pick6/place6 is like white noise, no interest - probably my hard luck stories lol I know the T.A.B. rely on the so called 'whales' for their turnover and the little punter has been pushed aside with free to air, phone betting ( minimum $10 I believe now ). Yes they have somewhat kept up with the internet generation, but you only have to look at the ozz sites to see where not 100% up with the play. My thoughts, are there new 'whales' coming though? What happening to the 'whales', are their numbers decreasing as the years go by? Yes we have export of our product to ozz and the rest of the world but you have to keep your own backyard clean, tidy or no one what's to look at it.

    Dont usually agree with alot of your posts aquaman but in think your spot on.
  11. Moreira

    I see Moreira has been registered in N.Z. and served one bitch already here. His breeding should add strength into N.Z. blood lines and will be a good thing for our breeding in general.

    Not a bad showing at all. So much choice out there these days.
  13. Next Season

    Ive sent off another email as the prize $$$ of $2100 didnt include 4th/5th/6th. Will let you know responce.
  14. Next Season

    Hi AC Recieved an email and 3months prior the payout for the c1 middle grade was $2100. Just had my hopes up abit higher but a increase is a increase.
  15. Next Season

    Take look at this: Current Season C1 Middle Distance $2310 1st $1386 / 2nd $577.50 / 3rd $346.50 = $2310 Prize $$$ for 4th $80 5th $20 6th $20 Not included If 4th,5th,6th were included = $2430 Next Season C1 Middle Distance $2505 1st $1387 / 2nd $579 / 3rd $351 = $2317 Prize $$$ for 4th $148 5th $20 6th $20 INCLUDED = $2505 So by my working there has really only been a $75 increase, it would be pushing to say there was a close to 14% stake increase - that was only that grade c1 middle. Dont get me wrong im for any increase in prize $$$ full stop but my personal feeling there has been a play on figures which probably disappoints me the most. Im only a owner not a trainer so wouldnt mind knowing their point of view.
