    MISTAKES HAPPEN

    You really are a bitter old cow aren't you? You see to have a real problem with certain people posting, while others seem to say whatever they like. How about just running the site without poking your nose in? You say not to accuse anyone without definite proof and now you want me to name people? It's no wonder there are no new posters about.

    Is there any truth to this that the NZGRA are following NSW greyhound association in forcing trainers to put water bowls in their dogs kennels before they race at the track? I hope not as I'm sure most people would know it is unhealthy for a dog to be drinking water right before they race around a track at High speeds and will cause big welfare issues in my opinion. I see in NSW, a few well respected trainers are already refusing to put a bowl of water in with their dogs and rightfully so

    Murry Baker said what any trainer should have said under the circumstances.Had missed a couple of trials therefore behind in her prep.Hes not going to say "shes a home run" in case his caution was right and she got beaten.All he said was he was surprised at her divvy after so long off.Remember Dummy Myers and his interview,which I never saw,insured he would never be interviewed again.Andrew Foresman or murry are interviewed on the radio almost every Saturday morning and for mine that's going out of their way.Their loyalty is to their owners who pay the bills and not jo blog punters who winge when they miss out on a winner.They always I think give honest comments on their runners and if it was me getting bagged for telling the truth I would do a Dummy

    Iffraaj - a quality stallion

    Iffraaj has left a NZ 3 year old crop that is one of the best in my memory. He has sired five 3yr old colts that are stakes winners starting with Karaka Millions Winner Xiong Feng, and followed by The Soultaker - since sold to Hong Kong. Then followed the Group winners Wyndspelle, Gingernuts and Jon Snow - the last two are unbeaten in Australia. And before these 3 year olds we had Turn Me Loose. Iffraaj had only two yearlings in the Karaka Premier Sale this year. He now deserves to be now recognised as an elite stallion - just like Tavistock whose stock were significantly upgraded for our last sale series. Well done to Haunui, Mark, Shannon and your team

    Race Replays

    What help to punters are these replays 4 or 5 days later when a lot of the dogs have had another start since then I can’t understand how I can watch a Horse race on trackside, and then view the trackside replay an hour later on NZracing. Why can’t we get this with dogs also?

    Racing Act Admendment Underway

    Blindness and illiteracy are two attributes that neither Midgie and I lack. It would seem as though we are both coherently (separately and not collaboratively) pointing out the same thing to very unintelligent and deranged people. We have arrived at a point where the carousel has returned to the main issue despite some very strange and misguided comments on the road to this point. We have a change to the Act occurring and one only has to read the opening post by John Allen to question the motivation of that change. To remind everyone of John's comments, refer to the following as content in John's original opening post: "Finally, the amendment will confirm the new formula agreed between NZRB and Sport New Zealand which will be based on Net Betting Revenue rather than Turnover. This formula has been agreed in recognition of the significant growth of sports betting in New Zealand and will provide greater returns to sporting organisations while stillproviding significant returns to racing from sports betting." It would seem that the NZRB has made an agreement with Sport NZ which changes the equation in the current Act under G (1) (d) i and ii. It states that this has been agreed between the parties and in recognition of the significant growth in sports betting. He also states that the returns to sporting organisations will increase, even though significant returns will be made to racing from sports betting. What is "greater returns"? What does that men? Is it more money or is it a greater percentage of the funds made from sports betting? So the question I have (and I think this is where Midgie is coming from) is what is the agreed deal? Have NZTR been consulted? If they have why haven't the NZTR publicised the deal so that we can all debate the process before it becomes enshrined in law. Where is the transparency? The last time this happened we all got completely fucked when our leaders (Hickton, Bettle, Chittick, Alkin, Fenwick and co) really bent us over and slammed one home so hard that our tongues poked out, we were neutered, and prostrate cancer looked like a fairy garden party. You are all bonkers if you can't interpret John's message. I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S GOOD OR BAD. What I do know is that I don't know enough but what I am hearing has alarm bells written all over it. Maybe I'm being paranoid but if you go back to my first post, it was "what is the deal? ". I actually like John but I know he has had very little experience in this space and I need to know his motivation is purely to support racing. That is what the current Act states. The 2010 quotes by the Minister is utter dross issued by a bloke that doesn't care. If he did, he would understand that in 1993 there were approx 30,000 involved in racing. He would see the declining market share of racing as a relevant sport and business, and he would have up to date data on the current numbers as a consensus was completed post 2010. This will see a further decline in participation numbers , market share and the financial welfare of the industry. We are shortly going to breed only 3000 mares!!! Don't you guys read the content of these posts? Are you concerned at all? Not getting involved in this early stage of the final wording of the Act could be seen as an act of complacency.

    Race Replays

    Thanks I wanted to watch the replay of a dog today Race 4 at Manukau, Red Head , first up run was good, but wanted to see what happened on Thursday It cost $50.00 of turnover, and probably money i would have reinvested after it won Very unprofessional not seeing the replays on the same day. I like to do my diligence

    Probably because they are to busy creating bullshit rules to justify their positions. Really, the NZGRA are on another planet.

    I think our mob are going to be too busy patching up their existing rules, without trying to create new ones.

    Is Murray Baker taking the piss...??

    So who does he answer to... He said honestly what he thought and just because you wanted to have a bet does not mean he is dishonest.

    In between all the gratuitous insults and bad grammar, there appear to be two indisputable facts on this matter: 1. Over the years, Geoff Small transgressed various rules of racing on a number of occasions (although several of those were ultimately subject to no official sanction), eventually receiving a lengthy suspension. 2. In recent years, his training record has been a shadow of what it once was. Facts 1 and 2 may or may not be related, but it's hardly drawing a long bow to suggest they might be. And in trying to refute that connection, simply ignoring the existence of facts 1 and 2 isn't a very credible position.

    Racing Act Admendment Underway

    I don't think sport should receive the money bet on sport. I don't think racing should get it either. I do think they are entitled to a fee for use of information (in the same way NSW Racing tested that right in Australia and won there). But if the government isn't going to dramatically change what it does with that revenue, then NZ sport would be as deserving of surplus revenues from sports betting as NZ racing is deserving of surplus revenues from racing betting. I wouldn't be concerned about the %'s changing to sport. I'd be more concerned about significant changes in the Racing Act resulting in a complete change in the way racing is funded based on the insignificance racing is now in NZ society and its importance (read lack of), to the economy. That is what governments concern themselves with. And what was once, is no longer the case.

    Yes, helpful if you read it Ted.... We all know how good she is, but those comments certainly didn't help the punter. Anyone wanting to have a last minute lash on the race would probably have had second thoughts after hearing them. And would then be highly pissed off at the result... Interesting that the stable "rep" was interviewed after the race.......funny that.....

    Mr Baker never said she wasn't going to win but was surprised at the $2.50 on offer considering the setbacks the horse had encountered and her interrupted preparation including two missed trials .I thought he was being honest .

    Some Jocks do it for you but others...

    I wasn't "complaining" as such about his riding. He's alongside D Oliver for me as a Jock that doesn't seem to do it for me. I'm certain that Mime and Nurse Kitchen were desperately unlucky. As you say, "Luk". (Hope Moirera is looking for a ride in the Oaks).

    MISTAKES HAPPEN

    I rung nzgra and was told there will be changes when this new person starts a DR Stewart may be she will do something heres hoping or maybe its back to still waiting ! The money saved on petrol vouchers which is a large amount where has that gone ? blood test aren't that expensive .Only have to catch 1 trainer look at the dogs which have improved there times by a good amount . Catch 1 and the fine would cover a lot more blood test and the drug use would stop. Look at the dogs that lost form when the drug testing was announced now they are back winning. All that needs to be done is check the form of these dogs

    Nope. They have a proper one where handicaps are actually handicaps with an 8-9kg weight spread.

    J Mac's Ban Stands

    D Oliver - $10,000 bet on a rival horse in a race he's riding in. J Mac - $1000 bet on his own horse he's riding. J- Mac gets triple the penalty. I don't care if the rules change. Common sense doesn't change. Disgraceful decision.

    J Mac's Ban Stands

    Everyone would have been a lot better off if he was given a 3 month ban and ordered to give 300k to the injured jockeys fund (or whatever its called).
