  1. PRea, it is a fair cost to get your horse from Bathurst to race in Victoria. I have one in training at Caulfield which costs $132.00 per day plus GST (10%). But I agree, the only reason you would race a horse in NZ is so you can see it race (outside lockdown), because the prize money on offer is so poor. Minimum prizemoney in country NSW is now $24,000 so even racing on the country tracks around Bathurst will give you a significantly greater return than that in NZ
  2. I thought maybe someone would have offered the names of the jockeys concerned, as races limited to 8 starters each race, which would indicate 8 jockeys affected by the current boundary lockdowns. Who are they?

  4. We're heartbroken to announce that Sir Dragonet has broken down during a piece of work at Moonee Valley this morning and was euthanised on course. So sad to lose such a great horse who was being prepared for a tilt at the Cox Plate again. Condolences to the owners and trainers
  5. As from midnight tonight, the Waipa District is included in the extenion of the Level 3 boundaries as a result of a positive out of Karapiro, until Monday night. As Cambridge is in the Waipa district, will this will have a dramatic effect on the number of starters at Matamata for Saturday?

  7. Government has announced this afternoon they will not discuss if the current Levels operating in NZ will be reduced or stay at current levels until Friday at the earliest. Sunday doesn't look promising for racing at Ellerslie if they want to give all horses a fair chance of winning by not having last minute rushed travel requirements from areas such as the CD.
  8. Given this strain of the virus has a longer incubation period before people are testing postive (up to 5 days), reducing the Level 3 restriction after the initial 7 day period appears a forlorn hope. This assumes EVERYONE who is a close contact or casual plus contact has a test within the next 48 hours (and stay at home which, given the recent scenario we can assume is unlikely to happen), and they all test negative. Unless this happens, lifting Level 3 after 7 appears a long shot. And the government advised that the latest employer support will be calclated bi-weekly, which also implies they
  9. Big risk Ted for out of town horses like the 2nd favourite from Otaki. Not much time to take the horse to the races if an announcement at 6am to drop to Level 2 on Sunday. Horse racing isn't only for the benefit of Northern horses.

  11. If the stable is part of this chicanery of trying to fool punters, then they need to be penalised as well. How can someone gain 0.8kgs during a race? Something doesn't smell right in this instance
