  1. Tianchi Monster, raced as Formidable for Shaune Ritchie in NZ also in R5. Should be running on over the longer trips.
  2. Big crowd turnout. Stallions impressively presented at every stud. Didnt make choosing matings any easier ! Windsor had theirs looking particularly shiny and ready to go. Zacinto very poised in the wind and rain. Pedigrees aside, Preferment, Rock 'n' Pop, Sacred Falls, Zacinto, Vanbrugh, Turn Me Loose, Mongolian Khan and Shocking had particular physical appeal - to my very subjective eye.
  3. Good vendor to deal with too. His weanlings are well presented & generally have decent pedigrees. No reserves on them so you know where you stand.
  4. Seems like a sensible outcome . Rider of 2nd horse viewed footage and decided not to take it any further. D.Johnson warned by stewards. All sorted.
  5. So who won it and did they get the full $20k prize ?
  6. Paternity explanations - from Child Support forms These comments (allegedly) were provided by mothers on Child Support forms in response to request for details of children's fathers. Aside from being variously amusing and sad, some illustrate the admirable spirit and humour that people exhibit in the face of personal challenge, institutional bureaucracy and what some clearly regard as an invasion of privacy."..I don't know the identity of the father of my daughter. He drives a BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto in one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact the BMW dealers in the
  7. Man asks librarian for book with info on how to help him toilet his disabled brother. Librarian says 'I'm holding it for someone else' Man says, yeah, that sounds like it.
  8. Why do you seldom see lawyers sunbathing at the beach ? Because cats keep coming along and covering them up !
  9. Anybody know what background in racing NZTR's recently appointed Company secretary and General Counsel has ? Son of MP Peter Dunne and legal representative for the legal high industry but any connection with racing ?
  10. Three prominent surgeons were playing golf together and discussing surgeries they had performed. One of them said, "I'm the best surgeon in town. In my favourite case, a concert pianist lost seven fingers in an accident; I reattached them, and 8 months later he performed a private concert for the Queen of England." The second surgeon said.. "That's nothing. A young man lost an arm and both legs in an accident; I reattached them, and 2 years later he won a gold medal in the track and field events at the Olympics." The third surgeon said, "You guys are amateurs”. Several years ago a man
  11. Typist at Otaki today displays dry sense of humour ! RACE COMMENTS: Race 1 EL CHEAPO CARS HANDICAP (2100 metres) Connections advised that GREY POWER is retired
  12. Riding the favourite at Riccarton, a jockey was well ahead of the field. Suddenly he was hit on the head by a turkey and a string of sausages. He managed to keep control of his mount and pulled back into the lead, only to be struck by box of Christmas crackers and a dozen mince pies as he went over the last fence. With great skill he managed to steer the horse to the front of the field once more when, on the run, he was struck on the head by a bottle of sherry and a Christmas pudding. Thus distracted, he succeeded in coming only second. He immediately went to the stewards to complain that h
