    Kingshill reacted to Trump in Avondale one of 10 galloping venues frozen out   
    ARC don’t “need” Avondale. As for Avondale going to Whangarei - that sort of move would be par for the course with Avondale wouldn’t it? At least the facilities at Ruakaka would be a big improvement and the Avondale Members would have a nice country drive to go to their race meeting rather than an Uber to Ellerslie.

    Kingshill reacted to TurnyTom in The Return of Radio Trackside/ Television   
    Marketing 101 - both radio and free to air TV should both be back on.
    It really is that simple.

    Kingshill got a reaction from puha in John Allen Really? FFS!   
    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.

    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.
