    Boxing Day racing

    This must be the most piss poor Boxing Day ever. Look at attendance, fields . Turnover. No one infield, The brain surgeons that think this is the future, you have fucked this industry. Can anyone reason why moving the carnival helps.

    Trump written off

    Well for a start Trumpy he would have that walking ghost Kushner and his missus running the joint. Eric would handle Finance and the goofy one would be in charge of Handicapping.... Given Trump has just lied again to the US troops that "he" got them a 10% pay increase, the first in 10 years, ( all untrue ) we could expect to hear fantastic stories about how well we were doing and the numbers would be stupendous, better than we've ever had in history.... And he might need another wall....in Petone.....

    Ashburton

    Sadly, there are only so many NZRB service trucks around the country and there were too many race meetings and not enough trucks. So, the worst performing meeting of the Boxing Day line up went - Ashburton. The meeting was actually shifted from the date last year as well and they raced on Christmas Eve. Shame, but the meeting was declining horribly and costing the club a lot of money with public holiday rates etc...

    Boxing Day racing

    The torrid rain storms over previous week ,especially the last 2 days saw predictable scratchings at Ellerslie.....yes shocking fields at Awapuni ...but Ellerslie was buzzing from where I stood.Excellent crowd enjoying pretty good weather with plenty of food and drink sales and a bit of punting as well. Quite a buzz to the place......over 5,000 pre-sales for food and beverage ,and the crowd on lawn and in public stand pretty good there plus in the tents around the back by the impressive new stables area. Cant be too many days in NZ racing these days where that sort of crowd attends ,

  11. What a magnificent horse he was Ivan...always remember that Auckland Cup win in front of a huge crowd, and that Miracle Mile demolition. https://youtu.be/rXsmXy45hvw Just a shame he was injured in the InterDominion series, he would have walked it...instead Sir Vancelot did.....
