    The whole thing sounds like a joke to me. Most awards given wouldn't be hung on the wall to save embarrassment

    And your point is ? Even M.H. would concede a stable winning 27 group 1s in a season is world class and have had asensational year eg nz cup,ak cup,interdom,5 jewelsmessenger,oaks ,sire stakes,oaks. hunter cup. the list would go on and on. As mentioned in this post the truth is this year to avoid embarassemet some trainers and drivers are too successful so must not get an award. (over achievers mentioned and fits nicely) Please dont insult the collective intelligence of this view .

    Messara report

    Greg said yesterday that 1/2 the dogs coming in from OZ have a ticket. So how about the one with 1st ticket pays $1k , 2nd ticket $2k. and we do not take 3rd,one. As he said we have to send them to GAP, this is our problem not the OZs.

    A Sport of National Interest

    https://www.racenet.com.au/news/peter-v-landys--why-are-we-hiding-the-bridge-20180920 Read the link, Racing NSW CEO slamming the state govt for not doing more to promote The Everest. Can you imagine a racing administrator here ever trying to push the interests of the sport in that way? Here they're more likely to apologize for the industry existing, or be worried about rocking the boat too much.

    Hi Bev what do you think he would say if , someone asked him to stop all imports from coming into race ? And only allow ones coming into have a litter ? I don’t have facts or figures but I’d say most if not all would be on the gap list after they finish racing ? To me if they are not there then more race for Nz dogs , also what are your thoughts on this question. Thanks

    The lad has not been officially named yet. He is by NZs current leading Sire Zed out of an Ekraar mare called Rose and Storm. Hes still learning the rope of being a race horse.

    Jacinda Ardern

    The PM’s gaffe: Why it matters by Christie While she writes fluff pieces about 125 years of women’s suffrage and does interviews and photo shoots around the subject, Jacinda Ardern needs to take the time to develop even a small understanding of the economy, what reports are produced and when, and above all, what GDP is. This is because what happened on Tuesday when she was talking to Mike Hosking was, to say the least, deeply embarrassing. She clearly had no idea what he was meaning when he asked about the GDP figures, and the conversation went on without her having even a small clue about what they were talking about. The reason it matters is demonstrated admirably by the fact that the dollar rose almost a cent against the US dollar, on the back of a ‘hint’ from the prime minster that the June GDP figures were going to be good news. Illogical though it can be, (David Lange once referred to the markets as ‘reef fish’), markets rely on sentiment, and a ‘hint’ from the prime minister that things are better than expected in the economy has a positive effect on that sentiment, and the markets react accordingly. Once the markets realised that a Newstalk ZB journalist was much more up with the play on economic matters than the prime minister, the dollar dropped back, ending the day lower than on the previous day. This matters. It matters to exporters, securing a deal on Tuesday for selling their goods overseas. It matters to importers, setting an exchange rate for goods being brought into the country. It matters to fund managers looking after investments, particularly in foreign companies. Some people lost money on Tuesday because of the prime minister’s embarrassing gaffe. (Some may have made money too, but that was literally dumb luck.) Statements from the prime minister make a difference, and she needs to understand that. It will do nothing for sentiment when the markets process the fact that the prime minister does not know the difference between the Crown accounts and GDP statistics. She didn’t even know enough to point out that there is no way she could have had a ‘hint’ about June quarter GDP, because that information is given to absolutely no one prior to the official release time. The markets don’t care about the Crown accounts. They are the government’s books. But markets care a lot about growth indicators such as GDP. I don’t believe that it is as simple as her not knowing the difference between Crown accounts and GDP. Listening to her conversation with Hosking, I will go as far as to say that she doesn’t have a clue about either. It is fair to say that these matters should be left to the finance minister, but the prime minister is expected to know the basics of how the economy is run, and to be able to answer questions about it, even if only at a high level. It is economic sabotage for the prime minister to give an opinion on something that can have such a severe impact not only on the economy but also on business confidence, which is an area where this government has struggled so far. Some (but not all) of the female MPs ( including unelected list MPs) in a recreation of an iconic photo of male elected MPs taken in 1905 in the Reading room of the Parliamentary library. So while she is fluffing around over the next few days with issues like the celebration of women’s suffrage, it is important to note that the country is being run by a silly little girl with absolutely no knowledge of economic matters who demonstrates her complete ignorance on a regular basis, and then obfuscates immediately afterwards to cover up her incompetence. Writing fluff pieces about women’s suffrage really is all she is good for. I think we can assume that business confidence will not be improving any time soon, thanks to this show of abject stupidity.

    He's on his way? Are you his manager or just having a laugh? A win strike rate of 13.4 in Brisbane Metro this season - and that's off the back of two average NZ seasons with SR's of 11.64 and 9.37 respectively. If he continues to ride as he did today 7 rides for a couple of 3rds, and a piss poor effort on SORNJA in the last in Bris: 3 wide the trip, in the last 3 of the field - the only thing he'll be on his way to, is back home to NZ

    Off to Flemington

    Buy a Myki card at Flinders for $6 then put $10 credit on it (or more depending on how much you’ll be using public transport). Then catch the train directly to Flemington (takes about 20 mins and should only stop at Southern Cross). Turnbull Stakes is a great meeting to go to. Last year they had a few more on course because of Winx and this year will be no different but no need to buy a seat in my opinion. They’ll be plenty to spare in the public stand. The Members stand is fantastic from a viewing spectacle (saw Dunaden pip Red Cadeaux from up there) and it’s a lot more comfortable with less people, nice leather sofas, easy to get a bet on etc. Depends what kind of experience you’re after and whether you want to fork out or not (general admission is normally around $30). Are you a member of a race course in NZ? If so you may get reciprocal rights. When you arrive on course from the train head down stairs and to your left is the bookies ring. If you walk through the ring then head right towards the Makybe Diva statue you’ll see the stabling area on the left. Hope you enjoy your stay.

    Great response - this smashing houses , smashing cars , 12 cops with flat jackets per raid was totally unwanted . Embarrassing that the NZPolice and RIU who expect us to support / respect them behave like this !

    So if someones phone or car is bugged and they were heard asking if they could get a Pinger or Pot off you could you expect 6 police cars to search your house and find nothing and then put your property and your photo over the front page of the media and stay silent, I know who should STFU its the imbeciles speculating on social media and certainly not the victims.BTW here is a small sample of sports people who have been charged and then discharged without conviction for Assault with Machete, DUI, Fraud, Cannabis, Assaulting pregnant wife, Rugby 15 Netball 1 Snowboarder 1 Cricketer 1 and would be interested to know if they were immediately banned from playing, training or watching their sport?

    But in saying that I think for the future of greyhound racing auckland and waikato should combine into one club....resite at suitable site and have a 2 turn track and 1 turn track like Melbourne.....build there own sports bar grandstand like cambridge and run it with pokies and have it open 7 days...also provide a straight track for training and breaking in purposes .

    Ill have to check my facts and get back to you on this one, but I am under the impression that the land has been identified as future residential or something along those lines.
