    Pretty sure I saw Chris Alford say he was embarrassed to watch early videos of his whip action. In 20 years time they will be saying they can't believe they were once allowed to whip horses at all

    Bring Back Brodie

    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.

    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 breeding season. Numbers are against him here, but the signs are good . One of the Arden Lodge draft broke in really well and is off to Barry Purdon and Murray Swain is on the record as saying his Net Ten EOM yearling is better than his Art Majors and Bettor's Delights. He's impeccably-bred. Out of a Hall of Fame Artsplace mare and very closely related to Well Said and So Surreal, another young SBSW now at stud in the US.

    mile times/rates

    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 have. I wonder if it's dawned on any NZ administrators that the most successful, self sustaining track in Australasia also happens to have kept their great location, have the smallest track, the most competitive racing, and the crowd closest to the track?

    Glenda Hughes Under Investigation

    Fuck no, quite the opposite, it's an essential part of the qualifying criteria for head office that you can hide in the shadow of a corkscrew, mind you with Glenda it'd be quite some corkscrew

    Glenda Hughes Under Investigation

    What does the RIU have to do with Glenda and the national party? What Glenda did was not illegal? The RIU are useless. Glenda is on the board. She cant even discipline Godber

    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 have them sitting in Wellington filling their pants in case something comes back on them. What the f... has it to do with NZTR whether the financial statements or the constitution comply - if there is an issue it is on the Committee of the Club you halfwits. Anyway surely Hughes has to go or as a minimum be charged with bringing racing into disrepute for this attempting to pervert the course of justice saga in Clutha Southland?

    With his record, how did he get past the interview stage? Something doesn't seem right does it?

    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.

    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.

    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

    joke thread

    '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 small but comfortable compartment in the hold. From then on, every night he Would bring her three sandwiches, a bottle of red wine, and make love To her until dawn. Two weeks later she was discovered by the captain during a routine inspection. "What are you doing here?" asked the captain. "I have an arrangement with one of the sailors," she replied. "He brings me food and I get a free trip to California." "I see," the captain says. Her conscience got the best of her and she added, "Plus, he's screwing me." "He certainly is," replied the captain. "This is the Picton Ferry."

    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.
