    Leo true but NZTR get there funding from formerly NZRB now RITA.

    Taupo Gone!!

    Ted TAB should run a book on how many race meetings will be abandoned this season. NZRB have bled the industry dry. No money for extra stakes and track maintenance. Makes you weep.

    Buyer Beware - Gavelhouse auctions (Racehorses)

    Stand to be corrected but I am sure the R. Lawson referred to is Rob Lawson a Harness Trainer from Newstead near Hamilton and a member of the HRNZ Board. Also the father of Simon Lawson a Harness Driver.

    Thatz David

    Red Rum Thatz Daisy ran a great second today in Race 6 on her home track at Wanganui today. Lead into the straight and run down late. If heavy tracks persist she may pick up a Maiden race.

    Multi tasking throughbreds

    Hi von Smallhaus. Willie Can won 7 races. Gary (Crash) Cross won twice on him- Matamata on the 21/8/71 and Rotorua 23/10/71. Gary Willetts and Dan Weatherley won twice on him and Gary Alexander once.

    Multi tasking throughbreds

    Charlie Bukows true! His second start win was a Hack 6f race. He carried the 7.12 minimum. Willie Can and Gary Cross second with Prince Nizami and Ron Taylor third and Securitas and Alwyn Tweedie fourth.

    Multi tasking throughbreds

    Execute was unraced at 2. At 3 he raced 7 times for 2 wins. He won his second start over 6f at Te Rapa on the 22/5/71 ridden by Greg Chitty. At 4 he won 5 from 28 starts including two Open Sprints at Ellerslie and Open Sprints at Avondale and Paeroa. At 5 he won 4 from 13 starts including two Hurdle races at Ellerslie ridden by Colin Lewis. At 6 he won 3 from 11 starts. The Campbell Hurdles at Ellerslie, the Awapuni Hurdles and the King Country Steeplechase at Waipa. At 7 he had an amazing season winning 8 from 21 starts. Amongst them a Steeplechase at Rotorua. Open Handicaps at Paeroa and Waipa over 2200 and 2000m respectively. The City Of Auckland Stakes over 2400m at Ellerslie and the Founders Plate 2100m at Te Rapa. John Riordan rode him in those two races. He capped off his 7 year old season by winning the Great Northern Hurdles ridden by Tom Fallon. Not sure if he raced at 8 or beyond.

    Couch TV Presenters, here’s your chance

    Craig Rail would be perfect for the role but he lives in Invercargill.

    Big Boned I certainly aren’t jealous of Lou. If anything I feel sorry for him in regards to Global Diamond and Huckleberry Hussie. If he decided to quit them and say sell them on Gavel House on current sale prices he would be lucky to get a grand each for them. If he decides to breed from them well the expense involved would be stratospheric.

    Big Boned I am not jealous of Lou at all! In the last few years as an owner I have had far more success than he has for an outlay of well under 5% of what he has spent. I started this thread because I am extremely sorry that Jacob McKay has lost a potential life changing horse from his stable. He deserves better than that in my opinion.

    Baz two race winner Mr Universe was on the same float as Aalaalune from Jacob’s to Team Rogerson. Lou has had more trainers than winners.
  13. gubellini


    At last count Lou has purchased 19 horses following his big Lotto win. Most despite their hefty price tags have proven to be limited and that is being generous! He gets a potential Group One winner in Aalaalune and shows no loyalty to his trainer whatsoever. Not a good look in my opinion.

    Yes same owners. Still a maiden but has won $91,650.

    Note that the highly promising Oaks type filly Aalaalune has been transferred to Team Rogerson following her Short Neck defeat at Ruakaka on Sunday. Feel extremely sorry for her previous trainer young Jacob McKay. He has done a marvellous job with this highly promising filly. Racing is a tough game.
