  1. Or an old favourite of mine”led into straight...stopped as if shot” Hahaha.... I remember Dad reading that formline comment out from the Friday flash when I was a kid..... Still remember it
  2. Unbridled or anyone else - Any foal pictures of your Ribchester offspring?
  3. Poor Wellington - He's angling for a 5-6 year stint...... Snippet from article below - John Allen is planning to stick around. WellingtonNZ may have had four chief executives in less than six years, and Allen numerous high-profile roles in the city, but he says his new job is a keeper. The latest boss of the region's tourism and economic agency has a long-term plan. "My view is that in these sorts of roles, you need to be [there] about five or six years, and so that’s what I would expect," he says.
  4. Fully agree...... Just corporate waffle and B-shit..... Snout in the trough again... Talking in riddles again
  5. Yes..... If I decide to bet on a race with only a few minutes left to study, I rely on the form comment from previous runs to help me out
  6. Laryngeal Hemiplegia - Was this why he was retired? Are there any studies done in regards to it being hereditary?.... Not doubting your knowledge Berri.... Just curious
  7. Early days..... But any thoughts as to why all Fillies winning sofar? Or just a coincidence?
  8. Queens birthday Monday used to be Castletown stakes day as well...... Lots of northern trainers would bring down in form 2yos chasing black type.
  9. Yes, always enjoyed the Queens birthday Monday meeting at Foxton.... 10 races, full field's and big crowd.
  10. Nice...... I do remember a winner midweek Hong Kong (so probably Happy Valley) about 6 or 7 years ago Paid similar money on our TAB...... Looked easy afterwards
  11. Good luck over the ditch Jason..... Had his demons and always fought back.... Hopefully he can showcase his talent in the big league
  12. Along similar lines....Talking about tracks/Merging etc........Here in the Mighty Manawatu, has anyone thought about selling off both Awapuni and the Trotting/Greyhound course as both surrounded by housing and on the fringe of the city - Then start with a clean sheet at Foxton? Plenty of room to strech out at Foxton - Think Mega training centre with top notch facilities - Gallops/Trots?/Greyhounds. Awapuni function centre could still be kept as offices/Function centre. Foxton only 20 odd minutes away from Palmerston North. Could even lobby to get the train line re-instated from Palmy to Foxton? - Could double up as a rail link for frieght from State highway 1 (Foxton into Palmy) and there used to be a rail line in place back in the day and plenty of room on the wide road shoulders. Is that too much common sense for a Sunday? Should I go back to Sleep? P.S - I'm not a member of either racing club and don't reside in Palmerston North or Foxton.
  13. I can't believe how John Allen could gain another high profile executive job in the same country......Let alone the same City Makes my blood boil that he can Bullshit his way into a $700K job at NZRB - do F all but talk more Bullshit....Waste $50 Million plus and just move on like nothing has happened. These Gravy trains for executives have to stop......No one should be paid more than the Prime Minister......unless you own the business and earned the money yourself.
  14. 100% agree.... No more inflated salaries also.....
