      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

    That's unfortunate you were travelling so far . Maybe you should of called someone local before the transporter left to see if they had overnight rain or if in fact it was raining as you were loading up and made a judgement call . Maybe your transporting company needs to time departure just after the track reading comes out ? Don't think the club owes you a bean as they did nothing wrong as most people would agree with .

    Irrigation and rainfall are not the same. One spreads water unevenly and can be affected by the wind etc arc of sprinklers etc . Rainfall pretty much drops water evenly across the track .
  3. Hastings Track Conditions

    Didn't they irrigate too late last time ? Where as this week they irrgated early and only till Tuesday to a dead 4 . Your arguement doesn't hold water
  4. Hastings Track Conditions

    Isn't the mandate /recommendation to have a track at a dead4 at acceptance time ?
  5. Hastings Track Conditions

    Track didn't downgrade from what it was at 7.00am so don't get your point.
  6. Election result .

    Looks like a dream result with National governing and NZF to hopefully put in a decent racing minister.
  7. Hastings Track Conditions

    Apart from the posters here no one is complaining and the majority agree with the steps the club took .
  8. Hastings Track Conditions

    Our environment is to diverse to have a rule as such . West coast and East are completely different.

    With the Weather the Bay has had recently strong drying hot westerlies and the track bordering a good 2 on Tuesday I'm sure HBR used all the relevant weather info available and made the decision to apply some water . Unfortunately more rain fell than any site predicted . .What I like about Butch Castles is he is not afraid to makes a decision and back his judgement an asset to HBR in my opinion. Damned if you do and damned if you don't in these situations .

    Ohhhh deafening silence to Big Reds reaction . Winning from everywhere by the looks

    Give them a break ! Had no rain and strong as westerlies for a few weeks . As in life you have to make judgement calls which they did. Here's to a good day of racing and I for one not bagging someone who has to make the tough calls.

    Repetitive and boring would be my description.
  13. With all these abandonments why don't they run some extra meetings on our hot dry east coast of the North Is ? There's been a lack of opportunities in the CD lately for industry days on good tracks so with another meeting gone why not ulitise the tracks that are sitting idle and would be in the dead 4 to dead 6 range ? S.L
  14. Would our industry leaders been aware of this coming or have the Aussies bowled us another underarm delivery. Surely with our close relations this will be amended otherwise it will be back to 7 k maidens shortly.
  15. Can't see punters in AU doing that will find an easier option for sure. The greyhound boys will be sweating don't they take a fairly large proportion of AU punting dollars ?
