    98.6% is not very robust.  That's 122 hours a year or 5 days of down time.  The fact much of that downtime coincides with major revenue earning periods is appalling.

    With the limited access of an outsider looking in there are clear pointers that infrastructurally - configuration, software and hardware wise there have been poor choices made.

    YES 98.6% sounds an awesome stat until you break it down like you have.  when was jetbet last updated does anyone know?

    It’s not always about wether you can afford sky it’s also wether you perceive the price of sky as value for money. 

    Before they offered the cheaper basic package we were contemplating cancelling sky as we were questioning what we were paying to essentially watch a couple of rugby games a week. 



    The split of basic has definately made it value as i don't mind paying just over $1 a day for trackside

    Really, give this dog the retirement it deserves. it is going backwards way before the 600 mark

    It has had enough, it looks tired, might have to change its name to "Ring out the Rag" (get every last drip from it)

    It is a  prolific winner over the extreme distance , it is  over 4 and   half years  and won over  $390.000





    Another egg on face moment :D

    Thank you for that reasoned response GOM. I really do appreciate a debate that looks at the issues in earnest. Our system lacks the flexibility to cope with the racing issues that arise. We are locked into a mindset that does not take into account the fluctuating nature of the time. Not so long ago the north had to beg to have smaller fields so they could card a race. I get tired of the "can't' attitude. There needs to be more "how can we make this work?" A contingency for the gluts and deficits. It's time to put their money where their mouth is. If they want to ensure great welfare outcomes then they need to look after all the people who look after the dogs.

    well said

    I wouldn’t have ago with a c1 at a group1 doesn’t deserve ago 

    I would have to disagree there. if you had a dog who run the hands of the clock you would enter!!!! so you are saying Fahey's dog who run 29.90 ish  in a maiden race and now is a C1 should not have bothered entering the oaks?

    well Ray why don't you just stop talking in riddles and tell everyone what you are on about, saves assumptions then

    No disrespect but this is a group1 45k race, now we have spasticks in the race who have no chance and can crash into a top doggys who can be injured etc, c1 sprinters should not be allowed a go lets get real, they look like they have given homage to the favourite flavours to be, saying that I really don't care but see what Ray is saying all the best to all cheers

    that's a bit harsh Wazza. shouldn't every dog get a chance. If you were on the other end with a class 1 dog I bet you would have a different view

    Thanks Jason, I don’t get the magazine but I heard at the track today it is a methamphetamine positive - do the police get involved when an illegal substance like this is found?  

    I didn’t find out the who but am very interested in the handling and outcome!

    makes you wonder how long it will remain secret.....

    surely an A class drug the police would have to be involved

    If you look at the Oaks selection policy for our sister codes, our selection policy is a shambles and reeks of cronyism.  This nonsense has to stop. GRNZ have to take ownership of this industry.  Leaving it to vested interests  does not work.  Ray Amer.

    that's a bold statement Ray, I thought the CHCH club has a fair criteria policy. So your accusation is certain kennels are getting looked after?
