    • Heats, second round heats, regional semis, regional finals then grand final/s mile racing should be a feature of the racing calender. Even throw in grass miles as part of the series or a stand alone one.

    • Edward Rennell appointed new GRNZ CEO ¬† Greyhound Racing New Zealand (GRNZ) is pleased to announce that Edward Rennell has been appointed as the new GRNZ CEO. Rennell is an experienced CEO, with a proven record of positive results and engagement. He spent 21 years as the CEO of Harness Racing New Zealand, and more recently, worked as the General Manager Broadcasting and Operations at TAB NZ, where he was responsible for leading the TAB's broadcasting and retail operations. He has also chaired the Industry Dates Committee for the last three years. "While greyhound racing has some challenges, it is very well positioned to continue to improve its position¬†within the New Zealand racing industry and I look forward to playing a part in that. I am excited by the opportunity and look forward to working with the professional and passionate team at GRNZ," said Rennell. Sean Hannan, Chairman GRNZ, says, ‚ÄúThe Board is looking forward to Edward joining the team. He brings a wealth of racing experience and understanding to the role, and we consider that he is the ideal person to lead our code through the next phase. ‚ÄúWe are grateful that Glenda Hughes has agreed to work alongside Edward until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition. On behalf of the Board, I also want to thank Glenda for her wonderful work over the past three years, especially in the area of improving animal welfare.‚ÄĚ Rennell will officially join GRNZ in September 2022. ¬† Harness has gone nothing but backwards since his departure from HRNZ. Did a good job at TABNZ and will be a big improvement at Greyhound NZ as he is a safe pair of hands.¬†
    • Winton is not too shabby either, the times say it all
    • Luxembourg may have drifted to 5-1 for the Royal Bahrain Irish Champion Stakes (G1) at Leopardstown next month but Aidan O'Brien was far more impressed than Paddy Power with his winning comeback at the Curragh Aug. 13. View the full article
    • A chance to review the weekend just gone. A weekend long on quantity and short on quality in the UK and Ireland, not surprising with the proximity of York.¬† The Group 2 Hungerford at Newbury over 1400m looked an open and slightly weak renewal. Money came for POGO, including my cash, sending him down to 5/2 but this wasn't his day and he finished fifth in a well-run race which produced a turn up with the success of JUMBY under champion jockey elect William Buick who is if not the best jockey up here then right up there with the very best. He brought JUMBY through from the rear to run down pace setter DUBAI POET who ran a huge race from the front while WINGS OF WAR, a frustrating sort for Clive Cox who as a juvenile had looked a real Commonwealth Cup prospect, running on into third. TIBER FLOW had been well fancied and looked a real threat 300m down before weakening while CHINDIT looked as though going back to a mile would be a good idea.¬† Another to run well was the filly PRIMO BACIO who had last time mixed it with the likes of PROSPEROUS VOYAGE and INSPIRAL in the Falmouth - she was well held there but ran a decent fourth in this lesser grade. That's my attempt at a link to yesterday's Marois at Deauville which saw top 3-y-o milers CORROEBUS and INSPIRAL clashing. The former went off 13/8 favourite having won both the 2000 Guineas and the St James's Palace while INSPIRAL had sparkled in the Coronation at Ascot before being turned over on quick ground by the 1000 Guineas runner up PROSPROUS VOYAGE. Prix Jacques Le Marois:¬† In contrast to some other occasions this summer, a rare sweep for the 3-y-os. INSPIRAL was back near her best for Dettori but he needed to be fully persuasive to hold the light challenges of LIGHT INFANTRY and EREVANN. The runner up had been ninth in the 2000 Guineas but had chased home TENEBRISM in the Jean Prat and this was another strong effort in defeat and he could yet find the elusive Group 1 while the third vaulted from Group 3 to Group 1 and ran very well. Both the placed horses may well show up in the Moulin next month. The first three were nicely clear - ORDER OF AUSTRALIA set the pace but was well held in fourth. The main disappointment was CORROEBUS and if I'd backed him I'd have torn up my ticket quite early - he wasn't well away and didn't look really happy at any stage. Perhaps the slower turf didn't suit and we'll never know how he'd have fared against BAAEED on the quicker Goodwood ground. PROSPEROUS VOYAGE was another who looked all at sea on the slower turf while it all happened too quickly for STATE OF REST and you'll have to ask Joseph O'Brien why they didn't try for the Juddmonte. As it appeared, they ran a decent time - 1 Minute 34.07 seconds for the 1600m - a full 1.53 seconds below Standard so this was a proper Group 1 race. INSPIRAL is 7/2 (from 5s) for the Queen Elizabeth II at Champions Day in mid October and it seems she'll stay in training as a 4-y-o with the Breeders Cup in 2023 the end objective which is all very exciting. She's no BAAEED I suspect but she'll be a big threat to the classic milers next summer. More action from Normandy today with a rare Monday card featuring the Group 2 Guillaume D'Ornano which went to the favourite AL HAKEEM who got home well enough and earned a 16/1 quote for the Arc but I just don't see him as good enough at this stage. JUNKO ran second while the British raider, MISSED THE CUT, as with some other fancied raiders, didn't seem happy on the slower turf and was well held in fifth. ¬†

    • Final declarations are through for the first day at York on Wednesday. The thunder and lightning have kicked off over England today - up to 3 inches of rain in Cornwall - but the ground on the Knavesmire remains Good to Firm. 7 stand in the Juddmonte¬† - Aidan O'Brien took out POINT LONSDALE. The bookies have this as a 3-horse race - the sole 3-y-o NATIVE FLAIR was runner up in the English¬†2000 Guineas and won the Irish 2000 Guineas before running a close third on his first go at 2000m in the Eclipse. I think the flatter York track will help as I thought he was on fumes in the final 50m at Sandown. A drop of rain won't go amiss either and he gets 7 lbs from the two older champions. MISHRIFF was dominant in this last year and as we know has won races like the Saudi Cup, Jockey Club and the Sheema Classic but he flopped badly in February at Riyadh before a close second in the Eclipse - a head in front of NATIVE TRAIL and 4 lbs better off. In the King George, his stamina wilted in the final 200m and he was well beaten into third. This is his optimum trip and quick ground holds no fears. However, he may be up against something very special in the form of BAAEED who is unbeaten in nine outings including the Lockinge, Queen Anne and Sussex this year establishing himself as the champion miler. Now he moves up 400m - most seem to think it'll be no problem and the breeding offers plenty of hope but I suspect this will be an end-to-end stamina test as this seems the obvious way to exploit any stamina flaws as they won't beat him for speed. The great Frankel proved up to it and I suspect BAAEED will as well - he'll never do anything as flashy as Frankel and he can carry other people's money at 4/9. MISHRIFF should be second - NATIVE TRAIL at 8s is slightly tempting but that's all. The other four¬†are all very good horses and Group winners and in a weak year would have real claims but they are what they are - solid Group 2 performers now taking on the very best and they are likely to come up short. I'm rally hoping it will be a race for the ages and if BAAEED establishes himself as one of the immortals (in the Frankel/Dancing Brave class) it'll be worth it. The Voltigeur is more than a support race - it's the credential Leger Trial - and six go to post over 2400m. Favourite is the fast improving handicapper SECRET STATE who is one of two running for Charlie Appleby and Godolphin but lesser known handler James Ferguson also has two and both warrant serious consideration. DEAUVILLE LEGEND won over 2600m at Newmarket but was readily held by yet another Godolphin runner, current Leger favourite New London, at Goodwood over the sharper 2400m. A strong gallop will suit and I think he's value at 4s against the favourite. Ferguson's other runner, EL BODEGON, brings Group 1 form to this Group 2 race but all the evidence is he wants much slower ground but if the storms come, who knows? Aidan O'Brien runs AIKHAL who was last in the St James's Palace on seasonal debut and won nicely in Group 3 company last time. He's a son of the great Galileo but the dam is a daughter of Fastnet Rock and only ran over a mile so I've a few queries on the stamina front. Charlie Appleby has the Leger at his mercy it seems but I take DEAUVILLE LEGEND to put a slight spanner in the works. Saturday's feature, apart from the Ebor, is the City of York over 1400m and once again I'm puzzled as to why we have another strong 1400m so soon after the Hungerford. The first two home in the Lennox, SANDRINE and KINROSS, re-oppose along with the slightly unlucky fifth place SACRED. Next Sunday sees a cracking card at Deauville with the Morny and the Jean Romanet at Group 1 backed up by the Kergorlay and the Pomone at Group 2 level.
    • I remember them. A 'mile night' around Alex Park would be far more entertaining than the same around Addington, due mainly to the ChCh start point, even though I prefer racing at Addington much more overall. My comment re Auckland¬†related to their serious lack of horseflesh these days.¬†
    • Auckland used to have a mile night.¬†¬†One would think such a night should still be in their 2023 programme as does¬†inject some variation and excitment. Also gives trotters the rare chance¬†to earn black type -¬†we benefited in 2020 when our trotting filly went under 2 min for her one and only win.
    • I remember when you announced that Hilary was to be arrested "THIS WEEKEND", about a thousand weekends ago. You're a leg end. And yes, I meant to leave a gap between 'leg' and 'end'. Actually a shorter list would be if you listed the truths Trump has told over the past three quarters of a century. It'll be a very short list.¬† Also, you got it wrong. Team Trump have FUCK all.¬†
    • t was a beautiful service, nice touch at the end having Dragon Queen cantering down the home straight, with the Westbury Stakes Race playing.
    • Thats an easy one she wasn't locked up because she is a democrat surrounded by a left wing department of justice , the decision not to charge her was a recommendation¬† made by james comey .¬†From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were ‚Äúup-classified‚ÄĚ to make them Confidential;¬†Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton , there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. IT GOES ON BUT NO CHARGES¬† .¬† As a result, although the Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case. So no charges for hillary meaning no charges for Super Don , lets see what happens . ¬†
    • It‚Äôs like fucking Groundhog¬†Day‚Ķ..this moron keeps parroting the same crap everytime‚Ķ‚Ķdoesn‚Äôt get any better‚Ķ..ūü§• Fuck me, there isn‚Äôt enough data left for that‚Ķ..having to put up with your bullshit for four years saw to that‚Ķ‚Ķūüôą
    • Start by naming¬†the lies Funny how the brainwashed can't list the lies. The FBI DOJ MSM White House are all being exposed for the world to see. Biggest sting operation in history Team Trump have it all.....the arrests begin after the mid terms ¬† ¬†
