  2. I'm surprised no-one made mention of this on Trackside. Yesterday at New Plymouth there were 3 starters from the same family: Run Like Boo - out of Sequel (O'Reilly/Freequent) who is a full sister to Freequence Just Ask Me - out of Often (O'Reilly/Freequent) who is a full sister to Freequence Miss Dixie - out of Phoebe Snow (No Excuse Needed/Freequence) All 3 starters were winners Of course Freequence is the dam of I Do and Iggy Pop

    Thats not so Flash JJ , as I can count 10 persons, just on the 'AWT discussion' alone, including your good self. you do seem inaccurate at times? maybe Pitman should man up and answer the critics instead of being so uneasy about it all.? I have no idea what uneasy is on about unfortunately , but seems some South Island tracks are better/safer/ faster/slower than others from the discussion.

    So knowing that we are entering an environment of animal welfare and health and safety, why would you create a track that requires horses to be accelerating as they are going around bends? Two things come to mind....means that results could be biased in respect of barrier draws and issues of injury arising at a time when we need to be creating a safer environment as the animal rights people's voices become louder. I've watched so much synthetic track racing that I've seen it all. Turning tracks during acceleration doesn't help these causes. In respect of horse numbers it could be said tha

  11. This is going to be a fun Olympics - USA womens soccer team claim after their 3-0 loss that they are boycotting scoring goals to highlight racial inequality. The good news is the Kiwi girls can now look forward to a nil all draw against USA when they meet! Professional sport ain't sport any more folks, it's all politics. If you want sport, you can't beat watching the kids play, before they get to high school. I guess I will just spend the next fortnight watching reruns of Bonanza on Jones channel.

    Hey there's some great times had there over the years. and the food and booze must of been good too !! lol to skip the racing. Brisbane is smack in the middle of it's carnival. you can get good odds I thought still . Amazing Dream and Copy That , American Dealer , have won at very generous odds . stick with them mate!. Krug was a bit short I spose. I have No mates here in Oz that back harness either, But not for your or JJ's reasons is what I was saying. It's Not because the horses are 'treated'. and it's Not because the odds are short as you say. I'll still bet on top drivers like

    Punters do indeed walk away Steel. I started out as a trotting punter. The first meeting I ever attended was at Addington. I even used to bet on the Alex Park trots on a Friday night. I have attended about six Interdominion final nights at Alex Park and Addington. I will always remember one finals night at Alex Park when I was in the "special people's" room with free booze and food, and I was the only person who stopped eating to go and watch a race. That was an eye-opener for me. These days I probably have 3 or 4 trotting punts a year. The cheating doesn't help, but the big turn-off is a

    Also noticed after putting stakes up earlier in the season Addington have adjusted some down this week The FFA Trot on Friday is $ 15k . Previously they were $17.5k The intermediate pace is $14k. Previously these were run for $15k Maybe just a time of year thing hopefully.

    good news

    Under the new arrangement, Group 1s will also be worth at least $100,000 with $50,000 for all Groups 2s, and $30,000 for all Group 3 races. Increased funding will also go to trotters and lower to middle-graded racing, and all races during the New Zealand Cup carnival at Addington will carry a minimum stake of $25,000. It is good news but the above paragraph is all about nothing. The $25k minimum at the Cup carnival represents no increase at all. The minimum for the group races also same as last season apart from a couple of group 1s that were raced for 95k in Auckland Stil

    Of course 72 runners in 3 events will produce more revenue than 24 horses in 3 events. But you are not listening or comparing apples with apples. If you have 24 potential runners, where is the data from anywhere that suggests 1 24 horse race for them will produce more revenue than 3 8 horse events. I don't think it exists. If you are not dreaming as it seems, then post the data that indicates that.

    Yes. All the data I have seen suggests that 3 8 horse fields will generate far more betting revenue than one 24 horse field. So say, 3 $30k races (8 runners) cf. 1 90k race (24 runners) seems a better bet to me. It also gives 3 sets of connections the thrill of a win and a decent chunk of prize money cf. 1. Please make your case transparent Berri. I am not convinced.

    I get shit on the other channel for rocking the boat occasionly, BUT, I have been part of the Industry and will gauge results on these tracks, more importantly as Berri says above, is horse numbers and attracting owners, outside the top trainers./ upping Min.Stakes and putting the right people in charge, to, increase crowd numbers and entertainment value, for both members and public racegoers, should be of prime importance.

    I can produce factual data which shows a direct correlation between field size and betting numbers. There is also one that shows the differences between betting in distance versus sprint races. So I'm not looking at this from any other angle apart from what could happen in the future. If you know that these are direct correlations, then shouldn't we make sure that in the event of the stars aligning, then at the very least, we can provide what they was as customers? As to the field numbers and numbers of horses, if I said to you that I knew how to provide 8 races a week worth $100,000 rac

    The thing is with the Olympics is, you end up watching any old thing and you come up with some memorable gems. So yesterday I caught the 45 year old woman gymnast from Uzbekistan (sp?) other 8th and final Olympics. 45 years old??? and sailing off that one (vault?) where you sprint up to it and then flip off multiple times, like a young whipper snapper. Then I caught the Netherlands cyclist celebrating winning the Road cycle race....except the real winner (an Austrian) had finished 2 minutes earlier. Jubilation quickly turned to tears.

    Chris....this isn't a case of whether a particular horse goes on the track or not. Some will, some won't. What's at stake here is the potential for the future. How many times have you driven along a road which has taken forever to build, where you've said to yourself, "for fucks sake why didn't they build this bigger for the future?" Maybe I'm just wired that way and many of you don't say that to yourselves but in this instance I look at these racetracks and question the thought behind limiting the number of runners to sub optimal numbers, having the inability to start 2400m races at the

    Great tipping hope you got plenty . Ants Certainly tried hard to beat king of swing by chopping him of early unfortunately it didn’t work and picking the suspension will be a decent one. King of swings run was massive after the early check and what can ya say about the mare when it really counts in the bigs ones she thrives on the hot tempos. Outstanding mare . Auckland cup auckland derby. These two big ones in aussie against the boys great result for Nathan. Her head to head against copy that must be close

  33. Quite an interesting set of cards this afternoon in the UK. At Ascot, EHRAZ, the juvenile that went straight into everyone's notebook on debut at Newmarket, absolutely bolted up over 1200m winning by four and a half lengths at the not desperately rewarding odds of 4/9. He looks an interesting prospect and I wonder if they'll consider a tilt at the Gimcrack. The Listed Valiant over 1600m saw another easy winner in DREAMLOPER, confirming the good form of trainer Ed Walker. She put up a decent time performance on the quick ground - the disappointment was last year's Fillies Mile runner-up I

  40. Final declarations are through for Saturday and just six will line up in the Group 1 King George over 2400m. As expected, ADDEYBB was scratched along with JAPAN and MOGUL. More hot sunshine has left the ground at Ascot Good to Firm but showers and storms are forecast for Saturday. The six runners are rated between 117 and 122 so this is a true Group 1 race with no pacemakers or lower-grade animals to make up the numbers.

    Piper mate, if Copy That gets beat it'll be because he runs into a better horse on the night; Ants will drive it to win it and it's guna take an AB special no doubt, but if he's within cooee of the front on good speed, the CopyT can do it, main danger for mine, is if the mighty Dream is sittin on KOSwings back, on a hot pace she will blouse em all Cheers Iraklis

I think the security was at fault.That Red Badge rabble were all too busy watching the race instead of the public.They were stationed 20 or so meters apart but not one of them even flinched until the incident was over.If that wasnt bad enough after getting that huge wake up call 2 races later just before the last race 2 streakers jumped the fence in almost the same spot and ran across the track and disappeared into the distance and across the track again to escape over the back fence.Red Badge security shouldnt be paid for the day after these 2 security breaches and maybe they should be asked
