  1. Past hour
  2. Perhaps..but how long can the borders stay shut before the economic impact is total disaster ? The loss of businesses and employment opportunities will be massive and the flow on effect of that has been masked to date by the handouts ( which were necessary ) that will have to end. The tourism industry is in dire straits and I hate to think how the Pacific Island nations like the Cooks are getting on when their whole economy depends on it. Someone will need to make some bold decisions soon......but before the election...? No chance......
  3. Today
  4. Smoking in "pubic places"? I've only seen that trick in Thailand.
  5. Where would they race the Derby , up and down the motorway ????
  6. Apparently the Labour Lefties at Avondale are still reluctant to do a deal with Ellerslie , swallow your pride Comrade Jan and invest in a deal at the ARC , rip down that member's stand monstrosity and build a state of the art facility on the finishing line and watch Ellerslie fly again like in the past
  7. Wouldn't it be great if Ellerslie was still a training centre and these new facilities were added.
  8. Why are you pointing the finger at the govt?if the rest of the world had done half as much as what we did then trade and borders would be back to normal, we did the hard yards and are now only held back by other countries lack of action or incompetent leadership to make the decisions for ALL their people, not just businesses.We are ready to go as a country and it is not our fault that aussie, usa,europe and asia.......are not.
  9. It's a pity this wasn't tackled in a more effective way ( yeah this is hindsight but now the groundswell has been weakened ). What can be done now to bring this to a head ? We owe it to Leo to carry on and prove the case.
  10. Explain again how this helps the punter TA.... Building work worth in excess of $6million, which will see tie-up stalls for 126 horses created alongside a warm-up ring, veterinary boxes & office, function room and trainers’ cafe, is due to start immediately and will be completed in time for November’s Melbourne Cup meeting.
  11. It's got two shows of happening in November or even this year.
  12. Just like those massive inauguration numbers.....and the recent disaster where nobody turned up.......
  13. Yesterday
  14. With Midnight Bisou and Tom's d'Etat both suffering defeats in their respective grade 1 races at Saratoga Race Course this past weekend, multiple top-level winner Vekoma gained the majority of support among voters in the NTRA Top Thoroughbred Poll. View the full article
  15. Equibase Company has rebranded and relaunched its popular Today's Racing app with a contemporary look and several new features, including a simplified betting tool. View the full article
  16. Louisiana Downs announced that overnight purses will be increased by $1,500 for the remainder of the 2020 Thoroughbred meet. The adjustment will go into effect on Saturday, August 8. View the full article
  17. Canterbury Park racing officials have submitted to the Minnesota Racing Commission a request to add to the 2020 racing schedule Thursday, Sept. 3 and to reschedule Sept. 7 and 15 to Thursdays, Sept. 10 and 17. View the full article
  18. So corrupt fake NZ news are telling people Trump is in chaos and the election is lost but in reality he has never been more popular. Watch crazy Ohokaman respond with fake news and fake polls.
  19. The Melb Cup May we’ll proceed - withOut on course people. Given that the 4-day Carnival provides the VRC with its entire annual revenue, then on top of the cost of the recently completed new Members Stand facilities, you can only imagine the dire consequences facing the Club. The COVID situation in Victoria is a disaster in financial and Humanitarian proportions unimaginable. Don’t think it can’t or won’t jump across to NZ again soon.
  20. Coolmore have plenty of War Front to try widen from Galileo , and Scat Daddy offspring although they must be coming to end of it soon. War Front had one run on turf Scat Daddy none . Looking at War Front he has broadly similar results percentage wise dirt/ all weather and turf . Although a deeper dig would be needed to separate the synthetic from dirt figures . I think there is a War Front standing in Canterbury somewhere .
  21. They had their chance but let pigheadedness come into it! Now look at the comparison between the two. There is none! It’s like comparing an A380 with a single seater bi-plane.
  22. I noticed last week that plenty of OZ shuttlers , or imported stallions to UK and Ireland were getting the winners home . First 3 races one day at Galway ironically on day sponsored by Dublin based company called Caulfield . Might miss some but Epaulette, Elzaam, Sepoy, Redoute's Choice , Fastnet Rock , Hallowed Crown and Brazen Beau I think I saw too.
  23. This is where Avondale comes in , with $200 million to spend the opportunity's are endless . Do a deal with Ellerslie , spend 10/15 million on upgrading 3 floors at Ellerslie , officially renamed the Avondale club rooms and pay for whatever track is needed it's win win , Avondale can then become relevant again instead of the class dunce . This has all been said before and it falls on deaf ears but those running Avondale won't be around forever and in time this will happen .
  24. I need to print that off, frame it, and hang it on the wall. BTW, you don't happen to have the number for GA?
  25. Punting is a self inflicted wound , punters have two choices , smarten up and back winners (administers can't help with that) or gamblers anonymous it really is that simple .
  26. Well done Auckland Racing Club , they are lucky that they have the resources to be able to invest at this level but good on them in trying to arrest the racing slide in NZ .
  27. George Hall and SportBLX Thoroughbreds' Max Player worked five furlongs in 1:01.55 Aug. 3 on the Belmont Park dirt training track in preparation for Saturday's Runhappy Travers Stakes (G1) at Saratoga Race Course. View the full article
