Open Class - R121

Open Class - R121 (4/4)



  1. Why not transfer the meeting to Te Rapa tomorrow? Millions have been spent on drainage at Ellerslie and Te Aroha- both epic failures. Raises the issue as to whether NZTR and the Clubs did robust due diligence before contracting out these projects.
  2. Cameron George will have to dig deep into his bag of cliches and slogans to explain this debacle.
  3. Good luck Tarantula! We are fighting for the wooden spoon!
  4. Riccarton R1- Demand Respect Tauranga R2- Did The Trick. Joker Good luck all.
  5. Great appointment. Knows every aspect of racing and breeding. A former Amateur rider and trained a few in partnership with Ginger Tankard in Cambridge. Has done a sterling job at Westbury Stud.
  6. At Winton on the 18/1/58 Tilly Light won R3 ridden by Hec Anderton and his brother Pilot Light won R4 ridden by JM Cappie. At Opunake on the 15/3/58 Double Roll won R4 and his full sister Golden Roll won R5. Vic Sellars and Vern Coley the respective jockeys.
  7. At Riccarton on the 10/11/54 Glenlee ridden by Clem Bowry won R3 the NZ Oaks and her full sister Glenkay won R4 the Metropolitan Handicap ridden by Brian Wood.
  8. Trentham R1- Bella Timing Te Rapa R6- Hey Happy Good luck all.
  9. The Lionel Pratt trained mare Cloudy View at Oamaru on the 2/1/53 won R4 over 6f and R6 over 1m. The next day at Kurow she won R2 over 6f and R5 over 7f. She then raced at Kumara on the 10/1/53 and won R3 over 1m and R5 over 7f. All 6 times ridden by Bill Skelton. Amazing feat!
  10. My gripe with the TAB is their Jet Bet Slips. Often creased and fail to go through the scanning process. I suppose this is what you get for tendering out to the lowest tender for their printing.
  11. say no more week 7 meetings to choose from should read week 8.
  12. Baz Belardo only served 13 mares in his last season here so Haunui Stud decided not to shuttle him again. His progeny are going huge especially on very heavy tracks.
  13. In April, 1955 Incredible trained by Lionel Pratt won two successive races at Marlborough- R5 an Apprentice race ridden by CD Lee and R6 ridden by Bill Skelton.
  14. Leggy Jim Lalor trained Silver Fountain at 3 based at Reefton. From 4 on her owner JA Fowler trained her. Jim one 1 race with her- her 4th start at Kumara on the 13/1/68 over 5.5f ridden by DN Hadfield.
  15. I still rate Bruce Sherwin as the best commentator in the NI and Craig Rail the best in the SI. Great understanding of race tempo and inciteful pre race comments are refreshing compared to the waffle dished up by the presenters.
