    Please Popplewell and Rodley stop going on and on and on about the bookies getting done with the chap from TAB it's so tiring, like when you've got no conversation we talk about the weather. It's not entertaining or funny, so not sure why Rodley is always giggling away.

    Quite a balanced article by excellent journalist Martin Van Beyden out of Christchurch today......a main story on Stuff ,and I assume the Press . Excellent qoutes from racing people STomilinson ,Jill Smolenski and MHouse. They speak of the damage these actions and the resulting bad publicity do to their careers/livelihood etc. Yet we wonder on here why attendance and betting is in sharp decline. The Industry eats itself up from the inside......yet we look to divert blame.

    After attending Te Rapa yesterday & witnessing 5 jumps races, reading the stripes report and seeing 2 unnecessary fallers, it’s time this had some serious focus in a few areas. 1) The number of comments about persisting with a beaten horse is unacceptable from a welfare point of view. 2) Which fences do horses fall at? I think it’s obvious that it’s the first fence in the home straight. Like Aus they should be gone. 3) Does it stack up financially? The pool sizes suggest not, these races are nice to have but are avoided by punters. 4) The look & condition of the fe

    If those 5 races were to screen on One News tonight Ted, what do you think the outcome would be?. Needs to be able to stand up to public scrutiny.

    Hi Barry thanks for bringing the subject up, I rearly back jumpers but thought Kuru's ride on Wagner was poor judgement .Wagner was nackered before the turn running mainly in the rear ,making no ground at all and loosing more ground on the turn Kuru pushed the horse who was exhausted into the fence ,Wagner could hardly rise to the fence and sadly was put down . Kuru went on to win a couple of races and as Rodley [ the most boring person on Trackside] keeps telling us the best jumps jockey ever , really I doubt it. CheersBH Sorry I was wrong one of the 3 most boring people on Trackside

    Agree, esp about the last fence. Watching tired horses hunted into an obstacle is not a good look. It has also long been a concern of mine how riders will persist with a horse severely under pressure, risking accident /injury - to both parties. The new hurdles you highlighted are a good start, just look how the UK jumps scene still remains relevant and hugely popular.

    It's abhorrent that politicians who make laws & get them signed off fail to comprehend how to read legislation. btw, has anyone taken any steps to prosecute those who signed off the fact there was an "epidemic" of the same nature as the person who reported they had been in Wuhan markets with pneumonia in New Zealand? Does anyone know how many of those who were unwell who attended The Hereford conference were exposed to Shisha used by those who traveled to NZ from the Middle east?

    Whose scientific research was relied on that resulted in this petition? The worm is turning right back into the faces of the academics who have mislead others with their assumptions & modelling. The UK have ordered an enquiry into the reported number of Covid deaths as it's inaccurate, the CDC in USA is not updating there records of deaths, no doubt for exactly the same reason that the UK are together with Italy who started to revise the total number of Covid reported deaths. Roll on accountability of the academics who had caused the disruption to world stability with there

    1991 = Sayou . Stays 1m 4f maximum and is completely useless, finally got round at 20th attempt ( but only after refusing ) and the rider could not have gained more pleasure from a multiple orgasm Ballysheil Star = Completed course six times in a row , but the equivalent of a bungee jump without a rope .

    Firstly let's look at things in perspective Barry. 5 jumps races with 52 horses engaged and 3 fallers in total. 1 other knuckled over after jumping the fence and dropped the rider. 1) Only two riders were spoken to with regard to consideration to retiring their mount when out of contention. 8 horses were actually retired out of the race by riders. 2) The 3 horses that actually fell yesterday were all at different fences. In the hurdles one at the third last (top of the straight) and one at the second last. In the steeplechase there is only one fence in the straight with one fal

    Stakes

    The whole upheaval was to try and survive. Where do you think these "better stakes" are going to come from? Total stakes as a proportion of total turnover is miles higher than it used to be. I don't think total stake money is all that well distributed, so I am a bit disappointed they haven't taken this opportunity to revisit the whole stakes allocation aspect. Obviously they must think it was perfect before lockdown so why change anything. And yes, I know they have made a slight change: less money to the winners and more to the also rans, which I'm also not a big fan of.

    Hang on. I thought we had all this under control. All our cases have been caught at the border. There is no community transmission. Why are we talking about this now? The response sparked criticism from McIvor, who says that people are already concerned enough about the virus. She played audio from one caller, who said that he felt that, should the border be relaxed, then he stands at risk of catching Covid-19 and dying. McIvor says that the lockdown has kept the worst of Covid aw

    I agree.Their "banter" borders on being inane and embarrassing to watch.The TAB's payout is the same whatever wins, dividends just adjusted to how many winning units.They showed their true colours when they stooped to playing the theme to the Titanic movie.A sign of the quality of NZ Racing presentation.Pathetic.

    Once they disqualify him , he's not licenced and therefore RIU are not allowed on his property if he chooses not to admit them. They would be trespassing, would they not ?Also he spells his racehorses elsewhere, are they gonna follow him everywhere ? What can they actually do ? How many employees did he have ? Or still does ? What consideration does the disqualification have regarding employment law ? I'm just asking questions ? As I reiterated before common law takes precedence and any HRNZ rule has to abide those constraints.

Judith has immediately got Ardern and the media on the run. Both are now showing their true colours. It is no surprise that they have immediately implemented their anti-Judith, anti-National strategies. What they appear to be unaware of, or are too thick to see, is that they have put themselves on the wrong side of public opinion. As this is probably a deliberate move they will be stupidly unconcerned. Immediately after

    Briefly....The deep state (real rulers of this world) have used intelligence agencies to control black operations/sites around the world incl the MSM (CIA controlled) They have been weaponised until Trump/US Military came along. Hence you will see the 5Eyes implicated in the Obamagate scandal that will rock the world. The 5eyes will cease to exist after the dust up. The US was sold out to China ...the intelligence agencies were complicit Trump/US military have been wagering a silent war to take down the deep state.....Obamagate will be first public exposure.

    Whatever the font , the pretty colors , or what ever other fancy touches they want to add to the site , if they can't get fixed odds out for 5 of the races at Palmy , and it's now 12.30pm , then it doesn't matter what they else do to simplify or beautify the site . This is amateur hour by so called professionals . Wake up FFS .

    All the best Leo, Grimstone is like a dog with a bone. I wonder how far he would have got prosecuting someone for calling him a c..t when he was in the police force. It just goes to show how vindictive the RIU has become.

    The RIU are a completely different organisation today than they were even 2 or 3 years ago. It has grown considerably with what appears to be an unlimited budget. Some of the more recent employees have a different mentality to what the RIU staff have had previously. Revenge and and victimisation now seem to be the main driving force of the RIU. It was my understanding that the recently approved racing act was going to place some limits on the RIU's power. Unfotunately this did not happen. I think, however that the penalty imposed will be considerably less than Leo has mentioned above.
