    Can the Auckland Trotting Club survive?

    Did anyone think to invite D Trump? Seem to be pretty good at this type of thing, at least according to himself.

    Can the Auckland Trotting Club survive?

    I was unable to attend the meeting last night unfortunately and am surprised at the lack of comment or feedback anywhere? Has everyone been sworn to secrecy?

    RITA- Board

    Patiti.....you make good sense re NZTR ...however it’s a bit unfair to single out one single entity for criticism The reality is we’re producing a product no one really wants, supported by a dying audience. There'll always be Racing in NZ in some form, but not as we’ve known it, and therein lies our challenge...how do we remodel the industry, make it relevant and prepare it for the future ? I’d have thought the amateur club system has to go, NZTR in its current form definitely has to go, the abusive bullies known as the RIU must go, and from the ashes something must emerge that’s smaller, 100% professional, transparent, accountable, safe, managed by people who actually have experience with horses & gambling, and that produces a “package” that’s globally appealing to our customers. Let me close by saying a couple of things, AW tracks are NOT the answer, they’ll help, but you can’t build an industry around them, unless they’re Strathayr. Lastly....there’s absolutely no doubt that I’ve got the best brain in NZ Racing ( along with my numerous character flaws )...and I’ve got the hands on experience, plus I like all the members of RITA...but I can’t work with Winston or Labour...but when those time wasters are moved on I’ll be there to do my bit. I think RITA has an unenviable task ahead myself, and they should be given 20 years to turn this shambles around, because they’ll need every day of that.

    Was watching the leadup to the next race at Scotsville South Africa. OK it was only a maiden but seems the Trackside manager must have rung the night time TV operator at Trackside and got him to switch to Ascot where the NZ rep was about to run. Most annoying once Scotsville was being shown the coverage should have stayed there. Very disappointing.

    Please explain. NZTR is the author of its own mismanagement and has simply blamed it on the TAB for years. Now they have taken over by stealth well see how good they are. The export industry seemed to be the focus of the submissions in Parliament . Taking over clubs and assets seems to be their next step.

  21. ENTRY THREAD : WINTER RACING A R CRESWICK STAKES PAIRS COMP : SATURDAY, 22 JUNE 2019 We will be taking in races from Flemington, Tauranga and Randwick As you post your selections I will randomly draw a number between 1 and 50 and that will be your place in the pairs listing. An updated draw list will be posted at intervals so please don't expect your number to appear as soon as you post Pairings will be numbers 1,2 / 3,4 / 5,6 and so on. If we have any pair gaps at closing time (Saturday 1.30pm) I will move the highest number without a pair to match with the lowest without a pair and then the next highest to match with the next lowest and so on. Rules for the Comp: 1. The Pairing with the highest combined points total at the end of the day will be the Pairs Champs. If there is a draw I will do a countback on numbers of wins for the pair, and if required numbers of seconds and numbers of thirds. If still the same, you share the accolades! 2. Each member of the pair will post individually with one selection for each race. Any points won by each will be combined as your pair total. 3. If you select a winner you will earn 5 points, second place 3 points and third place 1 point. 4. Races 4, 6 and 8 are bonus races. If you win then your 5 points will be tripled. Second and Third points remain the same ie. 3 and 1. 5. You have two Best Bets which you can use on any races other than the Bonus Races (races 4,6,8). If you use a BB then any points you gain from that race will be doubled. If you use a BB on a Bonus Race it will be disregarded. 6. You can post selections up until 1.30pm on Saturday – 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of the first comp race. 7. You can post scratching replacements up until 1.30pm. After 1.30pm any scratchings will move to the TAB sub. I will not accept scratching replacements posted by your partner as this could lead to issues if you prefer to let any scratchings roll on to the sub and they aren’t aware of this. 8. There will be a set of selections posted at 12.30pm which will be used as stand in selections should someone not post and we have an odd number. 9. Have fun Prizes 1st $100.00 W/P 2nd $50.00 W/P to be split between the pairs.

    RED RUM said: " Karak in last ( Race 6 The Windsor Castle Stakes 1000m + metres) should go on turf looking at breeding ." I always respect your views Red Rum: I will watch her. I Don't like Karak's dam's name ."Down The Well". Fantastic Ascot racing.. but racing for about 55% of what we race for in Group Ones in Aussie. TAB has no Jockeys Market that I can see: for tonight. James MK vs Dettori vs Doyle etc

    More like the cupboard - even this master of spin has made few public announcements. What was one positive outcome from her??? Quite possibly one of the worst appointments ever. The only other bit of waffle from her was that she opened a TAB account soon after her start date, whoopdidoo - love to see her account activity.

    Chris spot on. Yes that fall at Rotorua ended his riding career. We had great times riding work together at Tauranga. One time he had a leg in a cast. We rode a track gallop together! Amazing. Later he trained a grey mare at Te Rapa called Turning Point. She won a race at Paeroa on the 14/3/81 ridden by Brian York.

    The NZTR and the clubs have a lot more to do with the state of the thoroughbred industry than Glenda. They have been undermining the Board for a long time and have finally succeeded. What follows is completely unknown. Will they recommend RITA management of all clubs and their assets for the greater good.
