    canterbury Harness Awards

    Hey John, might be worth looking at previous winners of these awards. The are, and as far as I can remember, always given to other people who don't win the premiership, but more those who have excelled above their norm in the season just gone. Don't look at this as those who organised it trying to run blind from what is going on - this is exactly what they do every single year.

    Le Lievre's Gift in Race 9 and then Fun In The Dark in Race 10.

    I call bullshit, but stand to be corrected. He'll be in front of the screens tonight.

    Police Raids

    Only one? They are investigating at least 10 races. The NZ Derby is part of the investigation, but not from a race fixing point of view. However, a lead up race the week prior is.

    Staffing issues cost Ashburton the Jewels

    Entire board was in Invercargill, Elijay - it was a fully fledged Board meeting. One can only presume that Dent voted for Addington - you'd also imagine that Carter and Johnson would have voted that way too as there has been no hiding the fact that Auckland want the North Island edition.

    Here we go.... What was he supposed to do exactly? Drove the horse like the $1.32 shot it was and it went poor....

    Sales Time

    I'm interested in this debate, Brodie. Have you got some statistics to back up that we losing owners? I am hearing more and more trainers say that their horses is owned by a group of first time owners or that most of the people in that syndicate have never owned a horse before etc etc.

    riccarton track conditions etc

    Nope, not the trainer - I believe, due to the late decision to actually go to the races - that the ownership paperwork hadn't been completed in time for publication.

    riccarton track conditions etc

    Looking forward to getting out there this afternoon for a bit of a look. Have my first ever runner at Riccarton going around. Race 6 #1 Castle Hill - not expecting the world fresh up, was supposed to trial at Ashburton on Wednesday, but when they were canned the decision was made to head to the races instead.

    fixed odds bullshit

    I would have happily taken the $6.8 - paid $4.40 in the tote. Unfortunate for the fact there were reductions, but fortunate for you in the fact she most probably wouldn't have beaten the two faves if they had started.

    Go Dexter

    The last couple of weeks has seen the momentum swing slightly IMO. Dexter went through a patch where it looked like a struggle but he's back firing on all cylinders again. Cran has some nice ones to step out too. Will be level pegging by the end of March I reckon.

    What is Kylie Williams on....???!

    Are you serious? Drew the outside gate down the chute? How much extra ground would it have covered? And I backed it! As for Hands Down, you need to get off the juice, bud. Kylie doesn't live anywhere near Ohoka and the comment about Batesy is ridiculous.
