  2. Hello folks. I have recently joined some mates to race 2 horses ...1 in NZ and 1 in Victoria (Bathurst to avoid metropolitan training fees). The invoices tell me the NZ cost is $82 a day and the Bathurst cost is $97 per day. WE race a maiden for total prizemoney in NZ of $12000 and we race a maiden for total prizemoney in Victoria of $38 000 (Australian ) . To me that looks like 400% more prizemoney in Australia for only slightly more costs . Before I start raising my concerns with my mates am I missing something here ?

  3. PRea, thank you for your contribution. Most owners watch their horse on the Tv so watching a runner at the likes of Benalla is no different. I think you meant Ballarat, not Bathurst. I must remind myself that one has the Eureka Stockade and the other, the most wonderful car race in the world. I hope Bathurst don't lose that car race just as we have lost the most wonderful steeplechase in the world. You have pointed out some salient facts. With our present racing administration our country's horse racing will only survive whilst people cannot comprehend the basic economic fact

  5. Absolutely pissing down in Melbourne at the moment after 2 glorious days of warm sunshine. I may have underestimated the amount of rain we’re going to get!

  7. Dunno if the example you used is correctly stated as 400% more but it is a shitload more in stakes in Aussie and many races exceed 400% ! I guess there are other factors to consider when deciding what suits you best as an owner.......it makes sense to send your horse to Aussie if it has good ability . If your horse is a slow one it will cost you less in NZ plus you will see it in the flesh a few times etc and maybe enjoy the race-day experience a bit if we ever get out of this lockdown situation !

    Too good to not post

    Cup Week Over for Many.

    Uh oh, here we go!!!! My arguement all along has been; why do a covid test, up to 72 hours before hand and then let people travel, with nothing afterwards. Surely the traveller & their houshold having to self isolate for 5 days & then have a negative covid test is a better way of doing it??? But no, this lot have been "so busy" telling everyday hard working, law abidding citizens how it'll be from now on, that despite all their expert adivce, Delta is in the South Island.... I've never attended a protest march in my life, but if one was organized in my area about the cu

  12. Well aren't the hospitality venues around Canterbury going to have a big week. It''s a shame that the TAB are not going to allow venues the use of extra TAB Pods that will not be in use at either Addington or Riccarton for use in venues. Numbers in these venues is going to be wall to wall. At least venues with TAB facilities will also be able to cash in on commissions with punters using their accounts on their phones etc.
