    MiDeBo Racing got a reaction from Patiti in 230 TAB staff given marching orders - leaders still there   
    Would have a lot more faith in DM & RITA if they cut the PR saving face crap and called a spade a spade. What’s wrong with coming out and saying it exactly like it is. That the TAB finds itself in its current position due to years of mismanagement. And that Covid merely shortened the runway to where they find themselves  today. What’s wrong with saying it as it is rather than blindly using Covid as an excuse. Would have a lot more faith in the way forward if that was the case rather than trying to use Covid as a cover up.

    The TAB was set-up to service the racing clubs and now they have no service to offer them so why does it still exist?

    Along similar lines....Talking about tracks/Merging etc........Here in the Mighty Manawatu, has anyone thought about selling off both Awapuni and the Trotting/Greyhound course as both surrounded by housing and on the fringe of the city - Then start with a clean sheet at Foxton?
    Plenty of room to strech out at Foxton - Think Mega training centre with top notch facilities - Gallops/Trots?/Greyhounds.
    Awapuni function centre could still be kept as offices/Function centre.
    Foxton only 20 odd minutes away from Palmerston North.
    Could even lobby to get the train line re-instated from Palmy to Foxton? - Could double up as a rail link for frieght from State highway 1 (Foxton into Palmy) and there used to be a rail line in place back in the day and plenty of room on the wide road shoulders.
    Is that too much common sense for a Sunday? Should I go back to Sleep?
    P.S - I'm not a member of either racing club and don't reside in Palmerston North or Foxton.

    John Street's comments are to be applauded.
    Some years ago I had some questions for the NZRB.  They shut me up by telling the meeting I was at that the information I was requesting was commercially sensitive.
    Whenever any of you readers hear the expression "commercially sensitive" be very afraid.  It is a euphemism meaning that if we disclosed that sort of information you would no longer think we are phuck wits; you would know, beyond any shadow of doubt, that we are phuck wits.
    They shut me up and now I see a major interest in my seventy one years of life, going under.  I have sought solace in the bourbon bottle.

    My mate (mafia lad) in Melbourne lost a betting voucher worth $4700 at Crown one night, at one one of those self serve machines. 
    He stormed after this fella that he reckons took his ticket from the machine. Beat him to a pulp, but couldn't find the ticket on him. He got 3 years in the big house for his efforts. 
    To this day, big Mario is still hell bent on finding the missing ticket and the guy that took it.

    Because you went for "Any 2" it would be calculated as follows:
    $1.45 x $2.50  x $0.66 = $2.39 collect
    $1.45 X $1.55 x $0.66= $1.48 collect
    $2.50 x $1.55 x $0.66 = $2.55 collect
    Total collect is $6.42 (give or take a couple of cents depending on roundings up and down etc).
    If there were any late scratchings in any of the races that you got a collect, then deductions would make your collect even less.
    FYI, if you'd only picked 5 selections and spent the $10 you would have got $1 units, picking 6 selections you would have had to spend $15 to get $1 units
