  1. Mile Night At Auckland

    Agreed - very enyoyable night
  2. Juniors shafted

    Past results show that 6th and below still drop points ....
  3. Juniors shafted

    I wonder if the fact that it's penalty free if you run 2nd through 5th in any race nowadays has an effect on nominations?
  4. Gavin Smith

    If "there's not a whole lot to see" why was he even fined, and why is the video of this particular heat the only one not available?
  5. Gavin Smith

    Wasn't asking a question - noted that the video wasn't up then read the RIU report which explained it ..... must've been a bad look with him being the trainer of both the horse he was driving and the horse that he struck with the whip!
  6. Gavin Smith

    Was wondering why the video for this particular trial was not online ....... Driver G Smith (BRONX VILLAGE) was fined $750 by the JCA after admitting a breach of Rule 869(2) for using his whip to strike another runner (REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY) near the 200 metres during Race 12 at the North Canterbury TOA meeting on 9 May 2018.
  7. Dexter Dunn

    Only two meetings left at Palmy this season though ..... difference is 22 now
  8. Stop the Jewels moving

    Exactly why I won't sign the petition - sick of spam from things like that!
  9. Hawera Commentator

    No - I think you've got the wrong guy ......
  10. Hawera

    True - Hawera at Easter is a great meeting ..... but unfortunately this year will be our last here unless stakes improve - in fact next season we won't be travelling anywhere other than Manawatu and Otaki (assuming their stakes hold up) ..... just too expensive nowadays for such little return.
  11. Positives at Nelson

    What's "comical" about that .... common sense surely?
  12. Positives at Nelson

    Why would you plead guilty before being charged?
  13. Late Scratchings Auckland Tonight

    Also - have they changed the rule regarding number of wins needed to drive in races over $15k? If not, how was C Smith able to drive Realmein in race 8?
  14. Aaron White

    Maybe it's because he decides the drives for the rest of his "tribe" ..... ?
  15. Aaron White

    I don't mind Aaron but his pre-race comments and selections seem to come directly off Trottech (does he write that)? Matt Cross gets a little over-excited at times and has called a horse the wrong name on more than one occasion. I wonder what the TAB thought about Jason's comments at Waikouaiti regarding punters giving him their money rather than betting on certain horses? Mark is great, but Davey Mac for me ....
