    A Sport of National Interest

    In terms of agencies haven't tab's followed a similar model to Lotto by moving them into bars and clubs etc. Lotto is now always an add on to an existing business e.g supermarkets or magazine store rather than a stand alone store.

  10. Rules For Some

    Race Splits

    I am assuming its a mistake, whoever inputs the splits for Auckland seems pretty incompetent. I See they also had Cameo Syd down as leading the second sectional, yet the positioning (which is correct) has natures Gent in front.

    Maija Vance

    She is doing ok with her injuries. I do have some concern as she has not moved her left leg, Her arms and right led seem to have normal function. She has been in Bed the whole time and they are going to try her in a wheelchair today. That wont be that comfortable as she has 5 broken ribs
  12. Rules For Some

    Race Splits

    Can anyone confirm these splits are correct? Or did they get the second and third split around the wrong way? If those splits are correct, that 14.92 would be the fastest ever split ever seen at Auckland.

    Love your passion Iraklis - but for me I thought this is a very winnable year for the Aussies. Not too many on the Kiwi list look particularly frightening...??

    rugby b/s speak

    While channel hopping yesterday,came across highlights of the East Coast playing South Canterbury. Final score SC 100 EC 7. SC Captain in an after game interview said the score was not an indicator of the physicality of the game. When the opposition tackle like a wet bus ticket i'm afraid it is. More rugby speak untruths.

    Bernard Saundry Weigh In Interview...your thoughts.

    A couple of comments , it seems no one at NZTR or RB have any doubts about race fields legislation and the assorted taxes succeeding , Bernard Saundry quoted the expected $1 million a month , (that's what the delay in implementing race fields is costing) or around $2500 extra for every race run . One concern , what makes people so sure that replacing one RB with three mini RBs will see real savings in operating costs , as yet there has been no external review of the RB . Saundry passed on the question of salary's within the industry , here's an example of what the three new governing body's will be competing against when recruiting staff. There are 4850 workers at local councils around the country who earn more than $100,000 . That's just councils , corporates will pay more so I suspect anyone expecting salary savings will be disappointed . There is clearly a question over the proposal to confiscate club assets or funds , I was surprised to hear him say the RB already had the authority to withdraw race day licenses from clubs but this hasn't been acted on or words to that effect , effectively that could be done immediately which would force clubs to make a decision , contribute or go out of existence , if clubs decide to voluntarily contribute it would speed up this whole process . I think the time has arrived for real change and will have overwhelming support from the majority of racing participants .

    Lazarus

    In the herald online today.....cool news Lazarus improves to two wins from four starts in North America 24 Sep, 2018 5:00am 3 minutes to read Lazarus is now being aimed at the US$150,000 Dayton Pacing Derby in Ohio. Photo / Dean Gillette NZ Herald The man with the best seat in the house says Lazarus can get better even after he downed many of North America's best pacers again over the weekend. The former Kiwi pacing hero led throughout in the Hoosier Park Pacing Derby to hold out his new arch rival McWicked in the Indiana race on Saturday afternoon (NZ time). In a near replay of his US debut four starts ago, Lazarus showed blistering gate speed and led and while he didn't have much in reserve at the line he had done all the work early and into a strong wind down the back straight to stop the clock at 1:48.8 That victory takes Lazarus's record to two wins and two seconds in four North American starts and while he is already beating the best free-for-allers up there, driver Yannick Gingras says Lazarus can go faster. And will need to. "After having a virus a few weeks ago I am sure he is still getting back to his best," said Gingras. "He felt good but he can feel better still. He really is a very, very good horse. "He looks like having some pretty regular racing coming up in the next six weeks and that should see him improve even more." Lazarus is now being aimed at the US$150,000 Dayton Pacing Derby in Ohio on Friday night (Saturday NZ time), although Gingras was not sure whether a start there was certain. But the 6-year-old has already been transferred to Kentucky where he will be based not only for the Dayton Derby but the feature open class mile at the lightning fast Red Mile track on October 6. While Lazarus was embellishing his reputation in the US the last horse to nearly beat him in New Zealand, Dream About Me, made a long-overdue return to the winner's circle in the Hannon Memorial at Oamaru yesterday.

    Maybe TA made the right decision...got out at the right time....
  23. Basically 15 minutes wasted. Nothing fresh was revealed in the interview just affirmation of what we already knew.

    Lazarus

    Hey Scoobs, guys I think I recall somewhere last year MarkP sayin that 'Laz needs racin (the competition of) to keep him on his toes' matchfit, perhaps this next race is part of it, he's definitely on the improve one maybe two more runs should top him off....guess we have to trust that JimmyT and the team know a bit, and given his future, I doubt that they would do anything that might cause our (I don't care he's been sold, he is and will always be one of our fav sons to go to US) Champ harm......look at his face, and eye, while he was finishin out the race the other day, he was on! he knew that other horse was there he just did what he had to do, even tho tired he kept truckin, he'll be bloody dangerous in the weeks to come, and ready to do battle bigtime, I can't wait..... Cheers Iraklis

    Jacinda Ardern

    I see that GDP increased by 1% for the June Quarter. Gee Ted and all that cutting and pasting shit about the economy tanking, well you have been proved wrong. But quick tune in and get your dose of the prize wanker Hoskings firing up about her. I see that Jenny Shipley is up in Court as she does not appear to know what trading while insolvent or the solvency test means. Just another useless Tory leader along Bill English who helped himself to rent that he was not entitled to and should have also been in Court, that old rooter and racist Don Brash still spewing out his hate and of course the biggest Socialist of them all Rob Muldoon. Lets not also forget Pullar Key who became the but of jokes from the World press. Finally wanna be leader Crusher Collins or is her name now Twisted Sister.
  27. I like Sheldon's approach to this interview. He asked the hard questions and even organised some from Riccarton on Saturday. He cleverly told Sundry how to gain the respect of the industry as well. Be transparent and accountable when making decisions - oh and if you do that we may get you back on the show. Bloody good work!

    Surely this won't have all started from the 0800 integrity hotline (0800 RIU 123) will it.
