    Most of Book 3 is sold on one of two factors. Either type or price. So picking the top priced lot from the catalogue is nigh on impossible. The interesting part will be, how many from Book 3 will make the Karaka Million 2yo race in 2021?? As for Book 1, probably something from Savabeel.

    How about a little "competition". Nominate who you think will be the top Lot from Book 1. Only a very minor prize but I'll give $100 to the winner. Rules: - only 1 pick per person. - in the event that the same lot is picked by more than 1 person, the person who selects it first will be the winner. - comp closes 11am Sunday 26th. - In the event that no one picks the top lot, it'll still pay out the $100 to the highest lot that is selected by someone.

    The Minister and his advisers and RITA are bending over backwards to help Bernard and his cohorts and all his does is winge and moan because he is not getting his own way on everything. Could derail the whole process. Who is right and what is your opinion Chris.

    Not surprised Tasman. Haven't been to Menangle but have been to Melton and was underwhelmed by the course. I suspect the vast majority of Melbourne residents are unaware the Melton track exists.

    Plenty of rooms at Alex Park would be suitable for an inter-denom service before Trots start and surely some 'racing' priests or ministers can fit in a decent blessing. The new apartment owners will welcome it ! ATC has a magnificent asset there , in the city and it needs more use and hopefully the resulting income.Recent Aussie visitors to the Interdoms were in awe of the facility and its location.Read the comments about the state of Aussie Harness and many refer to the sad day trotting left the CITY locations of both Sydney and Melbourne and moved to the outback.Any Brisbane maybe following their lead. Alex Park can easily run another weekly meeting for lower class horses...whether it a Tuesday or Sunday...as it has the infrastructure sitting there......a good TAB , and food and bar open 7 days. But need the horses......Tim can supervise another 50 or so out at Kumeu while those thinking of getting out of Industry may get new lease of life. The young people ,so badly needed ,will see extra opportunities etc etc etc

    Write and ask them direct eljay. The annual report is on-line. RITA gives them about $1.4 mill ,and I see in 2019 some of their expenses came in under budget [travel and accom] and others down on previous [members remuneration]. One of the Harness Board members is P.Smith who walks past your table several times every night at Trots. He very approachable.

    Bernard is against the Bill and knows it’s implications, I find him to be a decent bloke, and he has inherited a sinking ship.

    That is all fine, but the burning question here is will it reduce the number of staff & cost of the operation. It does not (in this quote however) mention the JCA which was what my original post referred to and which so often gets confused with the RIU

    No idea how this impeachment trial will turn out although the Republicans seem to have the numbers to block most things,what concerns me and it appears in the US media to be having a big effect is that the Dems top 5 are all from NY or California. I don't think the Dems realise how much the US people dislike NYers and Californians all because they think that the US contains only those 2 states.

    For those who have not seen what might be occurring under Racing Bill before Parliament, this is from RITA Racing Integrity Board There has been significant discussion about the structure of New Zealand racing’s integrity functions and performance over recent years, which is unsurprising given the paramount importance in ensuring there is confidence in the integrity of racing. In undertaking a review of the structure and efficacy of the RIU and allied integrity bodies (as recommended by Mr Messara), Malcolm Burgess (who was commissioned by the Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC)) engaged extensively with industry participants and administrators and with experts in the area of integrity - in New Zealand and Australia. His independent report made a number of recommendations, including the establishment of a new single governance Racing Integrity Board (RIB), which will be responsible for compliance and adjudicative functions. This recommendation has been adopted in the Bill and is one which RITA supports (the combined structure is not unique in the New Zealand context). In order for the industry and punters to have confidence in the integrity of racing, independence from the industry is vital. Accordingly, in RITA’s view, an independent, streamlined model (as proposed in the Bill) can only be a good thing for racing. HRNZ contends that there needs to be a separation between the adjudicative powers of the JCA and the functions of the RIU. As HRNZ recognises, the Bill specifically requires the new Board to ensure that the compliance and adjudicative functions are performed independent of each other and in, RITA’s view, the details of how that will be achieved is a matter for the RIB Board and not one for legislation. Further, the RIB members will be appointed by the Minister on nominations from codes and will be independent of the codes, which is an important feature of the new independent model and is a structure commonly found across a number of industries in New Zealand.

    Where

    Things have changed. I remember watching Joker Man win the Morrinsville juvenile stakes in 2.02 in Sept 1986 against a full field. This early racing didn't appear to hurt his long term career as he went on to be a top horse. So as long as a horse is a "natural" 2yo and the trainer puts the horse's best interests first, I'm entirely happy with 2yo racing. I am envious of the level of stakes on offer for the young gun pacers but do commend ATC for "keeping the faith". As owner of past juvenile trotters it was extremely annoying when time and again a programmed race was downgraded to a $2K non-tote even if 6 or so starters. In the end we gave up and don't bother trying to race our 2yos anymore (though if Jewels in the North may be tempted late in season).
