  1. Hopefully the legal bills won't add up to more than 100% of the costs incurred
  2. The matter is slowly working itself into the public domain: https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/racing/123515144/rising-harness-racing-trainer-quits-as-concerns-sent-to-police
  3. I'm not sure when violating the criminal law of the land by assaulting a woman became a "misdemenor" but I'd love to have you as my judge one day.
  4. I understand the sentiment but even if I agreed with you, I would think the mitigation would apply to reduce a two year jail sentence to say one year. If this was my daughter ...
  5. How on earth did he not get a custodial sentence there??
  6. "Another nice one picked out by Dave at the sales" is, I believe, the script to recite here.
  7. Here's the statement: We did not like the penaltyissued by the Judicial Committee, but nevertheless did not appeal it, preferring instead to take a more vague and disingenuous route of suspending his licence because that is something we feel we can do without any independent oversight."

  10. Pretty good numbers by the looks, should be a reasonably decent 9 race card. Ashburton races should be much better on Sunday. Here's hoping for decent tracks for both.
  11. Sorry to hear mate - it won well! I did not, but did have a fiver on Ophelia Rose and also backed Betathedeviluno in the last (although just for a place). Was a rare good day for the roughies. Sky Hi Rahtwo not far away for you on Saturday. Five meetings in 14 days coming up in the South Island, so will be a busy time.
  12. https://loveracing.nz/RaceInfo/31415/Meeting-News-Article.aspx Hopefully not more strife just as he was due to come back...
  13. Hot Tap looks like it will get a start in Race 6 now, and subject to jockey choice (both recent hoops, CWJ and G Jogoo are suspended), would be a good chance
