    All the channels that i have watched today are saying that Trump not winning Iowa is the not good for him. Here are a list for both parties of winners of Iowa but losers eventually Rick Santorum Mike Huckabee Bob Dole x2 Gerald Ford G H W Bush(lost to reagan) Dick Gephardt Tom Harkins In 92 Bill Clinton only got 3%. but in 96 got 98% Wait till after New Hampshire

    il tempo rider R.I.P.

    Noel Riordan,regular rider of Il Tempo has passed away. Il Tempo won 2 Ak cups and a Wgtn cup as well as many other races'. Greatest memory for me of Noel was when he won the 1970 Wgtn cup with Il Tempo and rode his brothers horse,Grizzly to win the 2nd leg. Also rode Peterman,Tardini(Avondale Cup)Captain Jest as well as many others. Trained a couple of winners,Pops Girl,Cashmere Lass and Joannes Joy. He was one of 3 brothers apprenticed at Te Awamutu to Jack(mainbrace) McDONALD along with Des and John. Great to hear a couple of old Riordan stablehands ,Mark Claydon and Andrew Stewart talking about him this morning on Trackside.

    Used to watch Fox News when it was on Freeview every morning when i finished work at around 3 am. This was pre Trump days. Their news coverage was crap and the reporting of the US political landscape was a shocker. I was pleased Trump won(only because he beat Slick Willies wife) but overall he has performed poorly and yet Fox can't praise him enough. They would have to be the most biased channel i have ever watched,they are like a Govt controlled station in China or Russia. Having said that,once again the Dems aren't offering too much in the way of candidate so it won't surprise me if he wins another term.

    Is it the intention of NZ Racing to also put a grass track at Cambridge eventually and if so where would it go?

    Just imagine the number of protests that would be in the USA,if the general population took to the streets every time an American Politician(present lot included) was found to be lying.

    Newshub article by Proffessor Paul Gillespie of Waikato University says that Iran called Trumps Bluff. Pretty good article in the Washington Post today debunking that theory well and truly. Article was written by Danielle Pletka. Gillespie has shown himself to be Anti American/Trump in the past and his type teach our future leaders.

    I wonder if Trump will get the blame for those 56 nutters being killed and 231 injured at that other nutters funeral.

    Best speech so far this year and containing the truth about those who live in walled communities with their over sized bank accounts,body guards,chefs etc and yet think that they know more about the real world and how to fix it than those who live in it. Gervais is right,thank your agent,thank your'e god and f.....k off,and yet most still didn't get it. Fantasy land.

    Judge Judy endorses Mike Bloomberg. A multi millionaire supporting another multi millionaire.That sounds about right. QUESTION....Are any other Republicans throwng their hat into the ring to become POTUS.?

    Ross Taylor

    The problem is,he won't really care as his name will be forever etched in NZ Cricket history as the man who took over from Stephen Fleming as NZs leading all time test scorer. That is possibly the problem with cricket.A team sport dominated by individual records.

    To be fair,not all Iraq politicians want the USA out. The Kurds and Sunni factions want them to stay. The vote was 170---0 but apparently its not binding. Typical of all Govts all over the world,nonbinding votes.What a joke,have a vote and act on it thats the only way to go. Watching and listening to some US politicians on both sides is making me spit tacks. The crap they come out with.makes you shake your head.

    Condolences from Russia,the poisoners of countless Russians abroad and at home and the country found responsible for the downing of a passenger aeroplane. What a joke. The US,Russia and China are as bad as each other and they are all members of the UN security council with veto powers. Another joke.

    Its as though American politicians have access to a book of stupid sayings. Pompeo now a life time member of that club.

    Sleepy Joe and other Democrats are horrified that Trump ordered a hit on an Iranian General. Biden says that Trumps actions have put Americans lives at risk everywhere. That maybe true but at least the retaliation won't be lead by the Major General Qassem Soloimani. By the way Joe and the rest of the Democrats,American lives were at risk everyday before this hit and will continue to be at risk everyday.

    What A Shambles

    One thing we can say with some certainty is that Pinmedown was never going to win the Cup,1st or 2nd running.

    South Island jumps season 2020

    Why don't nz Racing retain one of the tracks marked for closure and turn it into a jumpers course only. Also they could combine it with the local equestrians and provide facilities for them also. JMO
