    Club membership

    Thats very interesting Pam they have made it quite clear that I have join the club if I want to continue to train there, also have to pay another $ gst for the privilege to train on this track, do any other trainers have to pay this extra fee to train on their track ( I am not talking about track fees) this is over and above those...

    Club membership

    whilst we are on the subject of membership to a Racing club can anyone enlighten me as to whether it is now compulsory to be a member of the Racing club that you (as a trainer) train out of. That to me seems to be a bit like blackmail I am just interested if this now applies to all trainers as this is what is happening at the track I train from.. interested in any replies to this ..

    New Stallion at Highview

    Nice breeding and a very nice and fair stud fee. I would consider breeding to this guy. Well done High View...

    Gorky Park

    He is now with Wayne Carter 1226 pyes pa rd Tauranga. I agree I too think he is a very underrated stallion and has done well with his progeny that have raced so far. I think wayne told me that he is standing for about $1200.00 which would be good value for a son of Montjeu. Well worth a punt anyway....

    Things have got so crazy regarding the policing of alcohol being taken into racecourses it almost resulted in a punch up between over zealous security guards at the summer at the races meeting in Rotorua on the 27th, with trainers and track riders being stopped at 6.30am this is with horses on trucks and in floats with the idiot wanting us to produce or trainers licences and or track rider licences before he was going to let us in. The reason """ trainers are always trying to sneak in alcohol for christ sake""" at that hour of the morning with our horses on board one of the trainers was going to run him over with her truck we were on a time constraint with having to be off the track by 8am and here is this muppet with a line of vehicles waiting to get in.At that hour in the morning we have got better things to worry about than sneaking alcohol in. An once of COMMON SENSE goes a bloody long way. Its just way out of control with all this red tape going on as Puha says do they want us all to stay home and not enjoy these small things in life after we have all worked our guts out all year for little or no return....

    Ready to Run sale

    breeder: I dont think the majority of the vendors where being unrealistic in their expectations the costs of simply getting the horse to the sales is huge an average would be around $11,000 and then add the cost of breeding/buying the horse in the first place and then you are getting some quite frankly insulting offers for them for example $5000. for a horse that has just cost in the vicinity of $25.000 . Most of the rtrs i saw looked a picture and a credit to the vendors, and i would say the most ran up in very credible times. I think its a sign of the times that racing is pretty much stuffed, and the studs need to start looking at their fee structures if they want to attract some of the smaller breeders back.

    Ready to Run sale

    alot of sad people after this sale,heaps of passings and the chat was that with so many pin hookers getting their fingers burnt this years yearling sales might not be to good with the pin hookers not able to buy until they manage to ditch the many passed in rtr,s. It will be interesting to see how things go in the next couple of months. I see NZB is coming to the rescue in a small way by offering incentives to sell in their Gavel House on line auction specificially for the passed in lots..
