  1. There is some good news from the club. They hope to only have a debt of $40 million after the buildings are finished and they’ve sold all the assets possible, including Pukekohe. I think that’s good news? P.S. I assume they also expect to not lose their major court case.
  2. So the Club has finally made some hard calls? May I suggest they are 3 years too late, just like our government was too late.
  3. Another couple of reasons would be that HRNZ know the shit’s about to hit the fan re the apartments and secondly have a look at who’s representing Auckland at HRNZ. Holy hell. !!!!
  4. I understand Guerin no longer works for the NZ Herald or RB/TAB.
  5. With all and sundry excluded, I assume it includes the Board of the ATC, who clearly have no functions to undertake with owners and sponsors missing!
  6. Tim who did the count for you? Once past yours fingers and toes you would have been in trouble!
  7. Well summed up Hermione, I attended Friday nights meeting and ambience of the whole place seems directionless. Nothing seems to be happening with the Club drifting into inevitable financial disaster. Hope I'm wrong but the word in Queen Street is not good. The Club says nothing. The latest is that the banks (plural), risk assessors, are forcing a fire sale auction of all unsold apartments. If true why has the Club remained silent to its members and other supporters?
  8. Correct Tim. Just look at the board. They either clueless or Yesmen.
  9. Tim the current system seems so stupid. Nui Ba Den and your trotter, that won a recent race and gained another win due to a relegation, are now basically finished. Are the suits running this industry morons? Surely they're not as clueless as the current systems suggests.Perhaps they have an agenda that we haven't worked out? Or did Phil Twyford come up with it?
  10. They may seek wisdom from others in the industry and allow amateur races shortly, after all the last Board Member who had trouble reading and writing quit last week!
  11. With such a lack of horse numbers, such a prosaic view by this new Board, and the previous, of not having amateur races is simply nuts.

    1700m Races

    Certain stables have got away with obvious team driving for years. It's not an even playing field and the stipes in my opinion are morons.
  13. A very good mare, racing in NZ. It needs Aussie group one form to be really rated.
  14. If the service station and burger bar sites don't sell, and the Bank insists on cutting debt, Pukekohe's gone.
  15. Regardless what any paid employee or consultant may have done, or not done, ultimately the Board is solely responsible.
