  1. Because..........

    The Major Grunt Milseain
  2. Richard Brosnan Press Release

    I wouldn't call Pompallier average - 20 wins including the Dominion Handicap and NZ Trotting Championship.
  3. very old drivers

    I stand to be corrected but I am sure the oldest horse and driver to win a group 1 was Pompelliar and the late Jack Smolenski in the 2007 NZ Trotting Championship. Pompelliar at nine years and Jack a young seventy three!!!
  4. My filly was having her first start at Te Rapa when the meeting was abandoned due to the running rail falling over ..... Off to Awapuni yesterday for todays meeting................ I'm sure there are many others in the same boat - what a joke NZ racing has become.
  5. Te Aroha Track

    Thanks for the track update - Cheers
  6. Like the industry needs anything like this!! - we should be welcoming people to the sport of kings not ripping the people who pay the bills (the owners) off. Absolutely disgusting act on all concerned.!!

  8. Xtravagant

    What a performance by this beautiful specimen of a thoroughbred - congratulations to all concerned. Love You Xtravagant.

    At the end of the day no one hold's a gun against your head to buy a share in a racehorse - it is simply your choice to invest or not.
  10. I remember those days well. Way back then I actually worked for Benson & Hedges and one thing I must say is that through the sponsorship it attracted staff from through out the country to race meetings and introduced them, their families and friends to both Harness Racing and Thoroughbred Racing. No doubt if you check race day attendences from that area they were alot more positive then today. Surely that isn't a bad thing?
  11. You Have To Laugh

    She is a lovely filly who didn't get a go today because of the way race the was run - she was never suspect at anything apart from getting a FAIR run
  12. You Have To Laugh

    I wasn't laughing!!!
  13. this is Kerry Hoggard

    He might be be a fine bloke..... He has shafted Gareth Dixon!!!!!!!
  14. Jewels-Nelson

    They put on a pretty good "do" for their summer meeting with regards to marquees and you can get a very good view from inside the track.
  15. Harness Jewels Competition

  16. Richard Brosnan

    I think from memory Pompalliers's two most notable wins NZ Trotting Championship and the Dominion Handicap were with drivers other than Richard Brosnan.
  17. Better Cover Lover

    Congratulations to you Brent & Diane - Well & Truly deserved - long may it last
