  3. Jason, I for one have really enjoyed it, despite not contributing to the return! Also happy with the current format. And on a personal note many thanks to yourself and your family for their efforts in making it happen, especially this week under obviously trying circumstances. Some of the posts in the 'Tatts Tiara' threads really do make me despair! Anyway if it's any consolation, while we spent many weekends like the one you and Sarah just have, my wife and I were always comforted by the belief that as our little darlings got older they would; cost us less, cause us less concern

    Thrilling Butcha

    Well you were there catching the Butcha and you saw him just like me, go for number one dog, when 4 got in front he then went after him. As for Night Pearl if she had a driver, you would say bloody good drive. Bev

  9. No worries PJ, I have done some research.... Scone : 272km from Wellington ? Does that make it a NZ race? Dark Jewel Classic: Last years winner Dual Humpy - Class 3 camel ( Trainer: Trev from Alice Springs ). I will get all the necessary information to Howie for an improved score next week.

  14. Certainly you can have your views Neil as they represent a significant portion of people who control the industry. I just wish you would address my concerns as the industry continues on its downward path. Regardless of governance issues NZTR have failed dismally in achieving their key targets year after year under this regime. In particular , I refer to revenue targets e.g. on course turnover down 20% since this Purcell took over, total turnover down and the worst export income is down when Purcell expected it to double . This is last matter represents $20 million alone over 4 years a

    Yes, well done to Indikator and team. Terrific win in ground that I thought would be too sticky for him. Wet and loose I rated him a huge chance. When I saw him have his first up run at Te Aroha last month the 10yo paraded in magnificent condition and in fact was the birdcage standout as far as looks went. He was under pressure as far out as the 600m yesterday but he fought on like a tiger showing outstanding courage to beat Pump Up The Volume by a nose and go into the record books. Indikator was the Te Aroha "Horse Of the Year" last season and every possible chance of repeating that ho

    Thrilling Butcha

    I backed Andrea, and luckily for me i think the Butcher had a butchers hook at Squizzy on the first bend. Allowed Andrea to have a dream trip underneath. Thanks Butcher, thanks Stipes.

  17. Munch' TR is essentially owned by the race clubs. RB is an instrument of the Government. For the former it is only in the recent past that so called sector groups have really been consulted. This came about when there came, from a realization of inadequate governance by the clubs, that a change to a corporate model was made. For the latter they are a law unto themselves although I am told there is a degree of consultation with the former. At my stage of life I have no wish to progress through the levels in either club governance or politics in order to try and cause change. But I do beli

  20. Jason, you and the other late posters are fine this week, BUT from next week ANY late posters are out of the comp, even if they were in from the start, it is hard to get any points so it is only fair everyone plays by the same rules.... Anyway those on zero... time to get a wriggle on as we are sharpening the axe as we speak.....

    Thrilling Butcha

    A lot depends who knows who. I have a neutral view and have no doubt he was checking out My Squizzy. The stipes made an error of judgement and I believe the Butcha will make them look stupid in upcoming runs.

  29. GRAND TOTAL $5058($316 PER SHARE) Well not the best way to end but hey we got collect in the last week what an enjoyable 16 weeks it has been, yet another club where the quaddie blues bit us in the bum but some nice collects along the way a special mention to Catalano and Ohokaman who turned a healthy profit to help get the club to the amount we ended up with. But everyone pitched in and although we didnt turn a profit we all got 16 weeks worth of enjoyment for $4 each ( $4 normally lasts me like 30 seconds in a pokie machine so to last me 16 weeks I am very happy). So now to have a 2

  38. Munchie, The little fat guy is trying hard. There is consultation for Africa with sector groups and clubs signaling and discussing change including that yet to happen. It can't go much faster as clubs need to improve their act. So hence the Partnership Program running now. We are told Rebranding starts in November by which time clubs will have developed some marketing and promotion strategy??? Hmmm! They jumped the gun with Kylie B but presumably she will yet strut her stuff. So we can look forward to magnetic marketing, compelling attendance and rivetting entertainment. Just being ironic

    Dixie Lee, Champion race bitch "The Queen Of Addington" You've provided us with some fantastic memories, over a star studded career! Before sending my dog across the ditch, I was pre warned he had to take on the mighty bitch Dixie Lee. Whilst studying her form, I instantly became a fan! How could one not but admire, that explosive speed from box rise to the finish. "I was in awe of such brilliance" To her owner & trainer, congratulations on what I'm sure has been a sensational ride for you all . I'm certain your now looking forward, to the second phase of her great career. And of c
