    There's also an ex trackside presenter, who loves Harness Racing, working for TV One sports news.

    The projected cash loss of 40 million is only the start. Could get to 70-90 million loss depending on court cases. And no one is responsible!

    Tasman Man, M G was given info about the club well before the members in the past so he could publish it in the herald. What’s different now? The news is bad!

    No straight out guess but an estimate of the extra costs to complete building 1, interest costs of very delayed completion dates, numerous disputes still not settled, money needed to maintain high stakes and money needed to service and hopefully eliminate various mortgages on the clubs properties.

    In 2015 the Board famously said that they were not interested in a joint-venture property development as they would make more by developing the project themselves. Unfortunately they didn't have the expertise too do so. May be heading towards a cash loss of $50 million plus the land value. Lets wait and see.

    box seat ,debate on blood spinning

    It’s an animal welfare issue and because of that it should be banned. As for any vet ever been objective - I haven’t met one yet.

    If there’s no vet on the show I wonder if it was possible to find one who was truely objective. They all take the same view as their collective masters, HRNZ.

    Auckland trotting club is

    Two things Tim. How are the new stakes been funded, even allowing for less races, and if the proverbial hits the fan re the buildings, what happens next? Are the Board playing the long game or looking for short term glory? Secondly, now that you're back in the tent ....

    Chevy I understand the new construction company what is completing the stalled first stage couldn’t agree a price with the ATC and are now working for ATC on a day to day to day basis. The ATC is now the running the project. This method is going to cost the club big time.

    Sadly the easy cash surplus of 30 mill could turn into a 30 mill loss. Then what happens?

    Ohokaman is correct. But never forget that whatever the CEO did the Board had the final say.

    Cambridge v Auckland

    I hope the ATC directors are smarter than the Mainzeal ones. Any opinion Tim?

    Cambridge v Auckland

    Where is the money coming from for the stake increases? A great question

    Just seems incredible that most harness people can see the problems in the handicapping system yet the morons running HRNZ won't recognise the issue and change it. Do they live in a different world in ChCh?
