    Helpful Hints for Day 10

    A shovel and a spade! Who is helping her? Boss should be worried.

    The big boy is back at Sha Tin tonight.......

    Is he a hurdler? No wonder that he can't win if he's doing all that stuff in a race!
  3. The advantage of radio is that one can do other stuff while listening, rather than being obliged to sit at a screen. Without Sky/Spark tv, or Radio Sport, might have to buy a newspaper to find the cricket scores.

    Aussie TAB error

    Why were the punters furious? Because their dishonesty was caught or did they seriously believe that the amounts were real? That they were spreading the story on social medium suggests that they knew. Taking money paid by mistake is a crime, unless the recipient can prove that it was genuinely felt to be theirs. I would take bets on them failing that.
  5. Is it Munchausen? Now known as F.D.I.A.

    Any Owner Compo ?

    If racehorse owner is your sole source of income, you might have a claim.

    Imagine if your horse won and you didn't back it. Imagine if your horse lost and you didn't back it.

    T.A.B. - Those documents don't specify that racing clubs subscribed the capital if the loan, from banks/s, was only under-written by them. Was told that the loan was quickly repaid so the conclusion was that the T.A. B. owned itself. Read the book about its history, although a few years ago, and thought the same from that.

    You know what happens when you bully a bully

    May be that I was a little unkind as she won 2 Gr.1 races. However, you could find 100 horses that had a comparable record and she is a long way away from 'Champion'.

    He may be the best 3 y.o. in Australia but hadn't won much (1 at Gr. 1 level), and none against all ages. Promoted beyond his ability? Who was that bloke extolling the magnificence of that mare from Tasmania that had won bugger all? What has she done lately, as I can't remember her name

    Rural NZ to the rescue .

    What bazach and Kingshill said. Most dairy farms are minimum of 500 cows to be economic units nowadays. With farm manger/sharemilker/staff, who has time to play with horses? A generation lost to racing is never likely to return.

    TAB to go tits up

    At New Plymouth, why were T.A.B. staff admitted when no public or members were? Who was betting? R.I.T.A. asks staff to voluntarily reduce their hours but asks Government to help at the same time. Muddled thinking!

    Oh what a mess we're in

    Also seems to a higher percentage of imported horses in races now, as if locals don't have much faith in their own?

    Corona Virus Impact on Racing

    W.R.C. controlling birdcage and owners' room, without doing anything in public stand (?), seems a half-arsed response. Like the government telling all tourists to self-isolate for 14 days. We continue to support the tourism industry but won't allow tourists to tour?
