  1. Back in the 60’s at tracks like Riccarton and Te Aroha they regularly had 24 horse fields. No problems with the gates back then.
  2. Seems to be a cosy arrangement between elite Recruitment Agencies and so called business high flyers. History tells us that portability of business skills to racing and gaming has been a failure in NZ. Maybe Mike Tod will prove me wrong but the odds of doing so would be pretty juicy.
  3. Great training effort by Ken and Bev Kelso. Her time of 1.6.18 eclipsed the previous Race Record (and NZ Record ) of 1.6.51 set in 1999 by Bawalaksana. Her time could well be a world record on Turf.
  4. George is still doing a good job in the north but I would like Bruce Sherwin to be given more commentary opportunities.
  5. We’re Doomed most maiden winners race next in R65 midweek $12,000 races not $30,000 Saturday races. Ideally my proposed Maiden Series races would be worth more than the sums I stated. A $50,000 Final would be great. My point is that owners and trainers should be given more incentives to retain horses to race here.
  6. Why don’t clubs get together and organise sponsorship for a Summer and Winter Maiden Series? Qualifying races of $12,000 and say a final of $30,000.
  7. Devastated for Cliff at the loss of his pride and joy. He still has the 3f Casino Princess in training. I am sure she will keep him going.
  8. Eclipsed I am not a linguist but note that the surname. Moet has two dots above the e whereas the drink doesn't hence the different pronunciation.
  9. MrBigStuff correct. Named after the wife of French vintner and winemaker Claude Moet. Pronounced differently than the drink.
  10. More pulp fiction from these two Aussie clones/clowns. Covering their butts before the dreaded February stake announcements. Pity they haven't been more "aspirational" in their roles.
  11. Matamata R1 - 16 BB R2- 13 R3- 8 R4- 7 R5- 14 R6- 3 R7- 15 BB R8- 2 R9- 5 Trentham R1- 14 R2- 5 R3- 9 BB R4- 8 R5- 9 BB R6- 5 R7- 10 R8- 8 R9- 6 Thanks for the Competition.
  12. Didn't have a bet at Hawera today but looked up the results. Noticed that Sapporo won Race 5. It was listed as a scratching in RaceForm. Strange.
  13. scooby3051 Incentivise will carry 55.5 kg not 57 kg.
