    DON'T GIVE UP YOUR DAY JOB

    FILL YOUR BOOTS............... I note the form coverage for tonight's heats in " his " Herald is fit for a Te Teko trials meeting in 1967. I believe this is the thin end of the wedge. Only 1 Australian meeting covered on Saturday ( Ascot ) no trotting anymore , you would have to say were racing into obscurity. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/racing/news/article.cfm?c_id=53&objectid=12289378

    Bruce Clark was well known for his "excessive use " the horse said he'd had enough as well ....... note the tail swishes !!

    Oamaru Crossing

    Apart from all the " Breakers " .. looks like an accident in the making. Poorly covered and right on the bend.

    The Good, Bad, and Ugly

    Did I see a load of cars parked in front of the main stand or is that just an image " Burn't to Memory " ? Crowd attendance , there was nothing else of significance in Auckland last night so whats the excuse .......... a serious note to ATC Mangmt. Try this..........

    B.P's BIG DAY AT PUKEKOHE

    Useful comments all round............ In explanation I was reacting to the Trotting CUP Day programme that covered the whole day during which Mick G did his usual talk over everyone talk all day in a thoroughly condescending fashion act once more together with Greg O'C and the Whale. The fact that Mick with $100 to spend on 12 races only " jagged " 2 favorites and a couple of $1.30 / $1.80 places after all his hyperbole frankly annoyed me. I tabled several TFC programmes and they were shocking as well , so I just decided to cover Pukekohe in detail. I can assure you most racedays are the same. Maybe these presenters should be licenced like stock brockers ? Although the TAB are clearly overjoyed when we are all misdirected.

    Spanken Injured??

    Don't expect to read it in the newspapers , the Herald Editor is too busy helping everyone back a winner at Rotorua well so he should the form in his paper reminds me of 1965. No trainers , 20% of jockeys not advised , no other printed matter. After seeing him last Monday , all day Tuesday , Friday and Sunday , yesterday was toooo much. O'h and his Cup day pix 10 selections of $100 per race after 3 races a place at $1.80 . Race 7 finished last , Race 8 $1.30 place , Race 10 everybody's pick Wainui Creeek Win's , 2 in the cup everybodys Spankem place , Favorite in the last wins. Well how crap is that for 8 hours talking ALL DAY.

    Matt Cross

    What did Mark M go back to , a shadow in the TV studio ? ? At one stage I thought he was just in the wings for a major appointment. Excellent job Matt , very accurate and easy to listen too.
