    Johnson v Johnson

    John has been very instrumental and key to CWJ's return and success - from zero to something quite outstanding - enjoy it Midge - a magnificent ride for those who turn their starting point around - Champion it, NZ racing has fuck all else to offer - CWJ is an amazing success story - sadly the negative pricks remain negative - but that is NZ racing as some choose to accept it - as long as they enjoy negativity and failure so be it - some of us like success and achievement - well done Chris

  3. A seperate Investigation into where our slower dogs could be accomodated, suggested ":(Tier Two racing)". It was working !!!! .... Rendle why was it stopped.? ? !!!!! dogs lives were extended by many years... You can continue to be a ledgendry owner but these tier two dogs that right now can't get a start have years of racing in them... Maybe not your agenga ..... but it will bite you in the arse mate if you don't address it....

  4. Its says that you are either unable to think for your selves or you are unable to provide content for your own threads. I seem to recall you calling me out about initiating posts which i have since done on a regular basis where content was available. Brodie had issues and lots of them with other contributors and eventually spat the dummy and left the site- his choice- Kotare still posts

    Trump written off

    I assume you are aware that this bloke works for an organization with a known anti trump bias. How about in future regurgitating some stories written by someone without a known bias, albeit I know they may be hard to find. The bloke you quote works for the ABC network. Here's a quote from an article in melbournes leading newspaper relating to the ABC networks bias after trump won the election. "The ABC is meant by law to be political impartial. But now even its managing director Michelle Guthrie has joined her staff in crusading against Trump. After Trumps shock election win Guth

    You forgot the no passing lane and the finest climate for evening entertainment close to the city centre. Whether they are going good as an industry is questionable. On another note, RWWA and NZRB both totaled profits and subsequent distributions to the racing industry of about the same value to EOFY 2016. Despite this somehow their thoroughbreds race for at least twice as much at the Saturday meeting as a minimum and they race for $18k as a minimum base excluding conditioned events on a Friday night at the magnificent GP. Not sure how this works or why the massive discrepancy..... Maybe

    Come on back Brodie this site has got rather boring without you. While we all know that you have restrictions on your betting by the agencies you also contributed a lot of harness information which created a lot of interest and discussion. I know there are some out there whom wont agree with you ever but they will get over it and give you some more crap. Just wait and see how quickly they attack this thread. I will certainly welcome you back.

    Interesting thought. Those in the galloping code would be shocked to suggest deliberately curating tracks to create a track bias. Rather than alter the footing would increasing cambers help the situation at all?

  18. Brodie had an ongoing argument with Kotare H and the BackPoonDrinkGoon. Brodie decided to leave. His input is missed but his choice at end of the day. At least Kotare still around but predictably The Goon has disappeared now that Brodie has gone. The Goon was only out to get Brodie.

    BREEDING

    Somebeachsomewhere is HUGE in the US. Most people here don't know he's the champion sire there, displacing none other than Bettor's Delight last year and looking likely to beat him again this year. It's fair to say the jury's still out here. It's still early days but worth noting Mark Purdon was not among the SBSW buyers at the sales . . . so it may not happen next season! A couple of SBSW's sons are already here (well, the semen is). Net Ten EOM is worth a look. His first crop of two-year-olds are showing up in Indiana and there was a rush of late bookings for him there in the last breed

  26. There's a trend for clubs to sell off prime positions and use the funds to prop up the game in second class locations. But any on course "atmosphere" has disappeared as quickly as the track sizes have increased, to the point now where only the died-in-the-wool enthusiasts turn up on course any more. Trotting has virtually become a "made for television" product these days, and the people at the top seem to think big tracks and fast mile times are the answer to the games problems. Nothing culd be further from the truth. We're copying a US model that has been floundering for longer than we h

  30. David Bennett is only taking the advice of his advisors(Hughes - who did, as has been stated, shoulder tap Birnie - and Allen). Politicians are like everyone else on the public payroll - paranoid about making mistakes without a back up of 'well this was my advice'. The sort of things Councils and the Government do all the time - get a consultant in. When you are in business you are forced to assess your own risks(and pay the price for your mistakes - these wankers would never be caught making a decision for themselves. No unlike NZTR meddling in the (non racing) affairs of clubs - we

  33. Political patronage in this country knows no bounds. Proven business failures like Double B have no place on the New Zealand Racing Board. I have had a bit of time for David Bennett in the past but this appointment shows a lack of good judgement and doesn't bode well for the future of the Racing Industry.

  34. Surely it is time the industry joined together and made a stand against these no hopers that are being foisted upon us. Shows the incredible arrogance and total disinterest National has towards the racing industry.

  35. They rule as it stands is ok and simple enough to understand. Sure there will be first time offenders still getting caught but when you see drivers getting charged 3-4 times those drivers either aren't learning ,don't care or are just plain stupid . It's not like the rule says 3 hits before the 400 4 hits before the 300 and so on . It's maximum 10 from the 400m to the post . Maybe the suspension for for repeat offenders could be longer

    'A young Wellington woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the sea, but just before she could throw herself from the wharf, a handsome young man stopped her. "You have so much to live for," said the man. "I'm a sailor, and we are off to California tomorrow. I can stow you away on my ship. I'll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy." With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she had always wanted to go to California, the woman accepted. That night the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a s

    Reliable Man

    Great for NZ but there seem to be alot of sires in that top end now. Are there enough quality mares to give good books to them all ? I don't mean to be negative , but we keep hearing how tough it is out there for the studs so I am just wondering. Maybe Gerry Harvey will ship a number of selected mares over from Australia like he seems to have done with some of his other sires.
