    Put in, Pulled Out and Put in Again Auckland's Pointless Lockdown By JC From memory, it’s about ten days since I last wrote an article and since then rather a lot has taken place. Auckland was put in and pulled out of a pointless three-day lockdown and now we are in a seven-day lockdown which will prove to be equally pointless. These lockdowns are doing more harm than good. Lockdowns are not the answer to stamping out Covid. The best we can hope for is a relatively effective vaccine and adapting in such a way that we can learn to live with it, as we have with other v

    Are the hospitals overflowing with Covid19 patients? Isn't there a White Cross, Southern cross, Doctors rooms and private and public hospitals in most main suburbs in Auckland and the main cities in New Zealand? It's not like people are falling over and dying in the streets like we were lead to believe by this Government around 12 months ago, are we? And don't feed us the Boosheet that they have saved our lives as they have cost people their mental wellness. Now how many youth, and others, have committed suicide over the last year from the distress of all this nonsense 'Sc

  4. A few shorties today...some very good racing at Flemington. R2 No Restriction at odds $17/3 R4 Saif/Wolves $17/14 R6 September Run is short, Brooklyn Hustle overs at $19 R7 Lunakorn $3.50 Moonlight Maid $15 R8 Fifty Stars and Non Conformist.....Warning the upsetter...wide open race, need a few in multis...Chapada, San Huberto, Humidor ? R9 Personal looks bet of the day. Randwick Guineas - Aegon and Mo’unga battle should be a good one. Ellerslie Sunday...following up Three Sixty, Amerelinha, Montre Moi/Milford Good luck all.

  5. I thought TRITONIC did it very well. He relished the quicker ground (officially Good) and the sharper flatter track and won as he was entitled to on his flat rating (96). As to whether he'll win the Triumph, the Adonis winner always goes with a big chance but the Triumph is a unique race. They go flat out and it's often a big field and that can unnerve the inexperienced or the mentally fragile and they go too quick for those who have enjoyed the winter plundering prizes on heavy turf. TRITONIC could well be the answer and many think so as he's been backed from 7/2 to 5/2 since winni

    Next time??? Hope there isn't a next time. But with this govt, that's probably a given. I hope she who wrings her hands considers her options a bit better next time.

    Spare a thought for the Auckland Racing Club's management. A big day. So many intricate details to be sorted out and so little time to do them.

  12. Brent Mangos just back from a few weeks on the sideline for whip use - NEED YOU NOW - raced three wide in the early and middle stages before improving to lead near the 1000 metres. Driver B Mangos was issued with a warning for using his whip with more than a wrist flicking motion. SHOW ME HEAVEN - an inquiry was opened and adjourned into the manner in which driver B Mangos used his whip over the latter stages of the run home. DANCE TILL DAWN - driver B Mangos was warned for being out of position at the candy pole. The all clear was delayed until Stewards could speak with the con

  15. Miss Guggenheim in last at Flemington. Didn’t get clear running last start. Rider probably seduced into sticking to the rails. New jockey and 200 metres extra should help. $6.50

    Chris McNab rode . Had a dig in US Equibase . Didn't do much in California , ran 8th in the Bates Motel Handicap, great name for a race . Then moved to the great trainer of jumpers in US Johnathon Sheppard . He found his calling , raced 7 times over a few years for him, won 4 , 2nd twice and finally DNF in last race . Won at Clemmons in North Carolina , Malvern in Pennsylvania and a place called Prospect that I am finding difficult to track down . Placed at Fair Hills the best jumps track and Southern Pines North Carolina.. According to Wikipedia he went for million bucks to US .

    Auckland Level 3 AGAIN!!!!

    Meanwhile the Public Servants are still been paid and with bonuses and pay increases whilst others have lost long term jobs and income as well as loved ones they couldn't so much as have a farewell funeral/ celebration of life with and others died alone. WTF has Humanity gone?

  19. I understand your points, but my point was more into the driving of the horse rather than the reasons for backing it. Was a not today drive plain and simple.

  23. What is your assessment of Tritonic Stodge. Just watched the race from Saturday .Clipped a couple but only 2nd race over hurdles . Loved the way he lengthened up after last , in the right stable and flat form shows he can shift . He was fancied to give weight and beating to Emissary at Yarmouth last year , came up bit short but he's gone for big money to Moroney in OZ .That Triumph looks very very good this year .

    Should have dropped it to $176K--no where near a Group 1 field. Spread the other $800K around to keep more people in the game. JMO
