    Riccarton

    I was down at Riccerton and I spoke to some locals that night and they were saying that the Race Club has been paid out the insurance claim. So what is correct as you are saying that they havent. I orginally had a horse in but he was pulled out so due to the fact we had paid airfares we still went. This year we were out the back by the big screen compared to being in stands as owner last year. It was good but also I used one port loo at 1pm and someone had already vomitted in it that was not nice. The line for the bars (outside) were huge filled with the young one but the tote lines were empty. The thing that concerned me was that people were going up and buying 2-3 cans at a time so there is no real control from the bar person as they are suppose not serve intoxicated people, They may not be intoxicated for the first can but what about the others.

    Not sure that is totally correct. I had 5 horses that I have had shares in retire in the last year for different reasons and from different stables and they have all been rehomed. Also Eventstars rehome a big of retired race horse

    Well if the TAB want our money and want to make money they shouldn't close the tacd and say on their site that the race is running when there still 2 minutes to ho I am talking about NZ races not Aussie races.

    Karaka on TV?

    I just looked at one year and syndicate horse and none of them are stallions. I did Te Akau because they were the biggest NZ buyer so it was easy to look up. I did the syndicate horses that were not exported because once again it was easy to follow. The 9 I used was only part of what they brought so yes they could of sold some for stallions and yes heretic velourcid in there even though she racing overseas but earns good money here.

    Interesting you say that. Have you ever taken the time to look back over what TE Akau have brought the last few years and how well the horses have done or havent done. I looked at 2015 for inteest and ownly looked at the syndicate horses. Total of 9 horses paid a figure of 2.46 million. So far they have earnt 531865. That includes Heroic Valopur in that and it earned 377355. Of those 9 horses 4 are inactive an 800000 purchase didnt even race. So when you look at that there is a hugh loss especially once you take into account the insurance training fees.
  11. I live in Te Aroha. Thames raced there the week before and there were sign up all over town and out in the country. The harness there were no signs up at all about their meeting. Thames gallops had a huge crowd so that tells the story. You have to take a bit of time and get signs up

    crowd at Matamata

    Yes you might be right. And if they can get that crowd and that turnover they deserve a percentage off the tote

    Nope not anti Te Rapa not anti any racecourse. You slamb dunked Taupo and their crowd but when you look at the so called dollar betters they brought money to the industry. And when it boils down to it that is the most important thing for racing. I dont normall attack people but you seem happy to do it so you can toddle back off to the ark ages where you obvioulsy live and we will get on with iving in the present not the past like you.

    No where near what I was saying. I SAID THE PROGRAMME NEEDS TO COME INTO THE NEXT CENTURY AND TO LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND EXCEPT THE PREM RACES. How the Derby comes into that only you now. What I want to know Barry is what Te Rapa on course turnover was on the 22nd of December. I am sure you will know but arent willing to reveal it. Reason being Taupo is classed as and Industry day Te Rapa a Feature meeting. Then each club is on a Teir system for payment so therefor Te Rapa gets paid by NZTR double what Taupo get to run a race meeting. I would presume Te Rapa would also get a percentage of the tote which I doubt Taupo would. So if you front up with Te Rapas turnover did they get 187k on course. If not then that meeting at Te Rapa cost the industry money whereas Taupo made the Industry money. If you also take into account the stakes that was paid out on these days Te Rapa was 182500 Taupo 106000 therefor a differnce of 76500 plus the extra payment made to Te Rapa means that for them to break even with Taupo as far as turnover goes they would need to around 233500 on course. So my statement is that it is not the smaller race clubs that is making NZTR struggle it is the bigger race clubs . Do you figures
