    Dyna Martha (David Bale Prue Bale) Very quick bitch.Has trialed sub 17.20 twice at Addinton. However chasing commitment is not there. First litter out of Prue Bale was super. Chance to tap into the Bale bloodlines. Give away to the right home. Contact Craig Roberts ph 0274800433 [email protected]

    What the

    Mike its quite simple really.Its a choice what people want to do.Breed, rear, break in, train, own, punt and the list goes on.You or me or anyone else does not have the right to tell anyone where they can get a greyhound from.Greyhound racing has been around for many years and had ample opportunity to grow long before imports came in.Matt and I are in no way the reason for the lack(which I don't think there is a lack of) of breeding.Ask Dave Fahey how hard it is to buy a good dog here in NZ. I don't have to because I already knew 25 years ago and that was the main reason I started purchasing dogs from Ozzie. There is no argument against a person wanting to race a greyhound in NZ that just happens to be born in Ozzie. And if you are worried about GAP and other re homing facilities being over run with dogs,tell me how come you are not asking why one breeder in the CD is allowed to breed more dogs than the quota for all of NZ for Ozzie imports. If the sport fails it will most likely be because of the clubs giving away all the power they had to people that come and go in our sport and don.t really give a damn about you, me or anyone else in this industry.To them its just a job,to us its life!

    What the

    Well said 1234 and Freightman. The issue of imports has been an ongoing farce for many years.We have all had the opportunity to buy nice big properties and spend the money to breed and rear pups.Why have'nt people done it??? I haven't cos I chose to be a trainer and rear the odd litter as a hobby.People rave on about all the sprinters that have come to NZ and been bred out of,but no one has forced anyone to breed out of anything.People do it by choice. Also Mike I don't see how it is any of your business what happens to the stakemoney that my owners win. I don't have any input into what you do with yours. Racing is an international game and that is the way of the future,and anyone should be allowed to race a dog or horse wherever they choose to. AC

    The Letter the Informant will not publish. Long time greyhound breeder owner who runs a successful accounting practice , Tom Rodewald , has sent me thru a letter he has tried to get the Informant to publish. They I gather are showing no interest and this is not surprising in view of the facts contained within the letter. It seems the horse codes are not providing a subsidy to the greyhound codes rather it is the other way round. ! Tom letter reads Over recent months there have been a number of articles and letters to the editor dealing with racing industry distributions in The Informant. One claim made by your columnist Brian de Lore was that greyhound racing, he understood, was being subsidized by the thoroughbred code to the tune of $5m per annum. It has been a common thread in letters to the editor that thoroughbred racing does not receive the full benefit of earnings from the export of its product. Further it is being stated that Section 16 of the Racing Act is unfair on the thoroughbred code as it focuses industry distributions on domestic turnover share. Fact or Fallacy? Over the past few weeks I have trawled through publicly available information and also made the odd enquiry to try and ascertain the true position. From the publicly available information we can establish in the 2017 season that: 1. Section 16(3) of the Racing Act that requires racing industry funds to be distributed based on NZ domestic code turnover has not applied since 2011 and did not apply in 2017. 2. it appears that betting on greyhound racing via the NZ TAB was 20% of total racing turnover. 3. it appears the gross betting margin the NZ Racing Board earned on greyhound turnover exceeded that of harness racing. 4. the export turnover commission received by the NZ Racing Board on greyhound racing was approximately 31% of its total export income. 5. the greyhound code received only 16.1% of the distribution made under Section 16. 6. a quick calculation indicates if the racing industry distributed its turnover based on each code receiving its share of gross betting revenue and its actual export commission earnt the greyhound racing share of the pie would have grown by approximately $8.8m. It seems to me on figures published the thoroughbred export turnover percentage was well under 50% of the total racing turnover in the 2017 year. Allocating export turnover by each code on an actual basis would have disadvantaged the thoroughbred code. Anybody interested can download my full analysis and some pertinent comments via my website http://rodewaldconsulting.co.nz/blog/racingindustrydistribution/ T L Rodewald Chartered Accountant Accredited Insolvency Practitioner It makes me wonder why our GRNZ have not been more forthcoming in highlighting just how successful the greyhound code has been in recent years turnover and income wise.

    Cyberbullying

    Totally agree Emotive.The best response to those losers that bag or bad mouth other people via cyber anonimity is to not waste time replying and then put them in the F;\][ wit category and dont waste a second more letting them in your thoughts. There is another greyhound chat which is a toxic rubbish dump of people (not all but most) that get enjoyment at bagging and firing cheapshots at other people involved in the sport. AC

    Exciting win by Cawbourne Krusty, NZ St Ledger

    Yes Kev what a champion she was! Its great to remember and appreciate the great champions we have had the pleasure to watch over the years. Gatlin Bale ,while probably not champion status was one of my all time favs.He went 11 months undefeated over 600 and beyond and his first defeat came in the Silver Collar heats when he was severly checked several times in the running and just missed qualifying.He was a great dog to watch and had amazing track sense . Who else has got an all time fav? AC
