    THIS IS SERIOUS PEOPLE MAKE NO MISTAKE

    The Government's problem is they are being advised by medical academics with a political barrow to push. It is only thing I can think of to explain the rubbish they are coming out with, except a desire to see their name in the headlines. Plus we do not have anyone in Govt with the brains and / or experience to question the advice. Berri is absolutely right about the PM. Other Ministers are more interested in bike rides than doing their jobs which explains their understanding of what is going on. But also for the politicians it is convenient excuse for them use when things do not go the way they told us it will ---"oh we were going by expert advice". This week we had some idiot Prof from Otago saying NZ could be the only western world country to eradicate the virus. Firstly the virus will almost certainly not be eradicated anywhere but more importantly how the hell does he expect it to happen in NZ when it is floating around the overseas AND we are not closing our borders AND not testing all new arrivals and quarantining those who test positive.( The Aussies took delivery of 500,000 test kits last week which give a result in 15 minutes). Then this Prof went on to say he expects 20 million to die from the virus world wide --I would bet my last dollar that will be proved to be absolute BS.

    Sen track racing coverage

    Thought I would share this, as it may provide some with entertainment during the lock down period. I recommend downloading the Sen app for something a bit different on offer for (aussie) racing coverage. I say a bit different, as they cover the races... but they don't have race callers doing the commentary (really need the telly on in the background). Once downloaded, tap "Sen TRACK" to listen to the trackside racing coverage. The hosts are all quite knowledgeable and take the piss out of eachother a fair bit, with plenty of disagreements, arguments and plenty of opinions throughout the day. Stay home. Save lives.

    No jockeys allowed ? I still enjoy the ones riding a finish a circuit early or the jump jockeys in UK sometimes taking wrong course , the one at the Valley was a cracker a few years back and the one at Hoki who rode the finish celebrated and went round again and horse still ran a cracker , I don't see them as idiots so i suppose that counts them out too , just a we all make errors department part of racings character . Like riding the wrong horse at Bendigo last week.

    Common Sense Versus Mediocrity

    It so happens I have a living document because I'm working with others for a racing solution. You always have to have reasons for doing something and if you don't document it, you have no right to enact it. Anyone seen a plan or any suggestion from government as to how a full lock down is going to help NZ in the long terms? I heard Cindy say that they were trying to wipe it out instead of herd immunisation. Then take what happened with Mico Bovis. They said they were going to wipe it out. So they killed every cow that had it. They haven't yet finished it off. So in this case we can't kill the people who get it. Read my other rant. Nothing makes sense. We can't afford to leave this mess up to the current management. In good times they didn't get it so what makes you think they'll be able to plan something during this sort of situation. The current plan being developed is very radical but it can be achieved. It's time we really got serious and move with a different sort of leadership. Rome is burning

    Cindy hasn't experienced enough to know what to do or how to do it. She can't continue to flick her hair and look down trodden. She's out of her league and is playing with all of our lives. The go forward strategy is seriously flawed because there is very little forward thinking and common sense moving forward. Everything is from a depressive position. And that twit that went biking...I personally think we should be able to go biking but protocols need to be followed to mitigate twits and fuck ups. But IF you're the health minister, and you've been telling people to self isolate, then by fuck you've got to do it. And if Jacinda finds out about it, she's got to smash him to the curb. It's not good enough to accept an apology. That's the wrong message for a period of time when everyone is under duress. Have you heard the politicians volunteer a pay cut? No. Why not? As a leader I would because guess what, I have taken a full cut, and all the people that work with me are being helped by what I now don't get. They deserve it and its warranted. There are tough times now and more to come because of all these twits not thinking with enough imagination and courage. As for our RITA and NZTR representatives, most have to be laid off and the head management need to cut in half at least. Brian is right in the Optimist....Dean, you've got to step up to the plate...tell us the cuts that you've taken....be transparent, show leadership that you're prepared to bite the bullet like everyone else in the industry. If you don't you will become another body on the heap.

    Is this happening in Petone

    100% correct so what you do is exactly what responsible Companies do on behalf of their shareholders you lay then all off and advise them when racing resumes racing won't be the same as we knew it pre Corona and there will only be a few meetings each month so obviously staffing levels will decrease. 20 jobs will become 8 and everyone will have the opportunity to apply for those jobs (no one outside). But no what do they do nothing just look to put their hands out and think the world owes them a living. They are just making the ship sink faster.

    Rural NZ to the rescue .

    Some of the comments on here are rather akin to our poxy government, regard "farming" as being all about dairy. Believe it or not there's actually still a hell of a lot of hill country sheep and beef farmers out there! I know lots of sheep and beef farmers with shares in horses, including friends that are in Jennifer Eccles. I am in several syndicates myself, plus 3 mares, 2 yearlings, 2 weanlings. If we could get a government that doesn't tar everyone with the same brush, had that rare thing called common sense, and stopped giving "subsidies" to all these overseas outfits to turn good sheep and beef breeding land into pine trees we would be going great!! What worries all us farmers is who the hell do you vote for??? Jacinda is a do gooder, Bridges has nothing appealing, Winston is an ineffective sellout, the Greens will put us all down the drain (after we've spent a fortune fencing hill country gullies off and end up with bugger all farm) Act........?? on more consideration, we probably are all stuffed!!

    been waiting for someone to bring that up. All those POS telling us, we are ALL in this TOGETHER, which is not even close to being true, Government ministers still on full pay, $100,000 - 300,000, (90% doing f all) lackeys and consultants all on full pay, most living in 4-5 bedroom homes with 2 bathrooms, spa pool, billiard room and bar, outdoor pool and big back/front yards, all the while imprisoning most of the population to their meagre homes and TOTALLY destroying their finances. FUDGE THEM and their ILLEGAL imprisonments, idiotic factory closures and general lack of humanity to their fellow kiwis. I think everyone should just go back to work on Monday ! Test EVERYONE and if clear, resume work, if not then stay home (depending on severity). I mean 1 dead, 1 in ICU (and hes stable), clearly this is not Ebola or Cholera. Why punish EVERYONE for the f ups of a few (including the PM, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Immigration).

    Extract from the Owners Bulletin March 2020 A WEEK LIKE NO OTHER. BOYS GET PAID. KARAKA MILLION NIGHT. Luke Kemeys “One of the things I’m most proud of is the positive coverage we helped generate on racing and the whole industry.” And just like that, it’s all over. Months of build-up and planning to pull off the night of the year and it explodes past us faster than Probabeel. How brilliant was she with $93,672 plonked on her! The scenes on the Ellerslie racecourse were something that I think won’t leave people’s minds for a long time. After a horribly unlucky start to the punters’ club on runner-up Intrigue in race one, it was good to bounce back and finish the night up by 45 per cent – that’s $365,000 for a total outlay of $250,000. It wasn’t an easy night’s punting and some of the odds made it tough to figure out how to attack the races. To be fair I don’t think people cared what the return was – they were just happy to be involved, so to have Probabeel seal a collect was just magic One of the things I’m most proud of is the positive coverage we helped generate on racing and the whole industry. Even if it was just for one weekend, at least we changed the tune of the typical story that we often hear. TV, radio, socials, newspaper, plus a magazine feature to come. Some people said it felt like BGP was everywhere they looked over the weekend and I think you couldn’t help but buy into the infectious nature of everything we were doing. The praise has come from near and a far and to gain the respect of some of those within the industry who we heavily respect, is very rewarding. A huge thank you to everyone that came out to our BGP event and joined the punters’ club. We ended up with 435 on-course and more than 1,300 in the punters’ club. A few years ago, it was just five mates getting into a taxi to go to Ellerslie. This year it felt like we were running an army! We are going to have to put some time into thinking about how we raise the bar in 2021. I’m not entirely sure how just yet, but I guarantee we will. It’s going to be a seriously big week of admin getting the punters’ club investors paid out, but it’s all part of it – finding solutions to problems we never knew existed. The past week hasn’t only been about our big night out at Ellerslie. Something completely new to BGP was being co-owners of Savage, our LA Stud yearling colt by Savabeel to go through the Karaka ring on Tuesday 28 January. This was something none of us had ever experienced, so you can imagine the excitement in the build-up to sale day and our boy’s time in the ring itself – a whole different level to any raceday bet. What a result! To see the two big syndicators Go Racing and Te Akau head-to-head in the bidding and end up with Savage being knocked down to Go Racing’s Albert Bosma for $270,000 – the whole experience was something I find difficult to put into words. I hope you’ve all enjoyed everything that we put together for the Karaka Million – believe me it has been a lot of fun. You have to think that this raceday will keep going from strength to strength. In the coming weeks there will be plenty more for us to dissect, but for now thank you for the support.
