    Kingshill reacted to Crow in When is it right   
    When is it right to pull horse up in a jumping race. Being uncompetitive yes, losing tack with field yes, but what about horse pulling it's block off just behind the feild coming to second last jump in straight and the rider pulling the horse away from jump therefore taking him out of race. Then he could hardly pull it up as it chased the feild home. So when is the pull up rule not adhered too or why do the stipes not question such action. Just watch the ride on Hamiltonian at Hawera and wonder why

    Yes.... Fully agree. 
    Unfortunately, a vote for NZF maybe a wasted vote. 
    ACT gaining a lot of momentum and could be the party to stop Labour having full control 🤔

    Kingshill reacted to Tony in open entry races   
    Is Bernard leading us blindly down the garden path again. On Saturday morning he was very upbeat about the the turn overs being so good. Where are they hiding the turn over figures these days. We should be able to see these and the splits between Fixed Odds and tote and Bernard should be able to tell us the profit from these turn overs each week. The TAB is selling bets but are they making any money now that they have forced  a lot of bettors to the minimal margins of Fixed Odds. At the moment it is like a sheep farmer saying how great his wool clip is but he is selling it for less than the cost of production. So no profit. This could explain why there is no stake money shown for races after the end of September. 
    I also notice for the races at New Plymouth on Friday no stake money shown for the Open Entry races. This is pathetic. How is a Trainer suppose to enter a horse with the Stake money advertised as $0

    I posted a similar idea on another thread on here during lockdown..... Have a Racing mega centre at Foxton..... All 3 codes..... Plenty of land to spread out, great sandy based surface, 20 minutes south of Palmerston north and on State Highway 1.

    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.

    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.

    Queens birthday Monday used to be Castletown stakes day as well...... Lots of northern trainers would bring down in form 2yos chasing black type.
