    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!

    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.

    A very good mare, racing in NZ. It needs Aussie group one form to be really rated.

    Regardless what any paid employee or consultant may have done, or not done, ultimately the Board is solely responsible.

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

    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.

    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.

    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 ....

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

    Why would anyone on this site expect the stipes in NZ to do anything, after all for most part they are made up of failed horsemen.

    How about also severely penalising drivers who on a galloping horse pre-start deliberately run into another horse to guarantee a false start

    Interesting that The Fixer had to pull out and go 3 wide as the leading A S horse didn’t look like leaving the fence turning for home. I dare say that if the race was in NZ the leader would have drifted out. Not tried in Australia as the stipes there wouldn’t have put up with it. Different story here with NZs hopeless stipes .
