    Curious what you guys think about Ultimate Sniper

    I believe that Ultimate Sniper is an absolute top horse, but Lazarus was a champion he was in another zone or a different planet from the other horses that he raced against and there was some very top horses among them and he destroyed them. I remember talking to Mark at Rangiora one day he said words couldn't express what it was like training and driving him, and if Mark felt that way you know that Lazarus was a complete champion. He was the best of the best.

    Can the RIU miss Tina dropping her Hands

    Flash you are correct she did drop her hands, I dont know why the RIU didnt get involved maybe, with the way things are going for them at the present time they are taking a back seat. Look at harness racing, Mark P fined only 300 for not driving a horse out at the finish then is caught again maybe involved in team driving in the ID heats nothing has come out about that at this stage. I think that the decision on race 2 at Auckland is another cock up the RIU and the JCA seem to be hellbent on trying to be nice people but they are letting down the owners, punters and race goers and it needs to be sorted out ASAP. I understand this is one of the issues that RITA was going to have serious look at.

    If u had to choose

    No contest Tim Amateurs by a street . Keep the Monty races as a non tote until we have more horses and more experienced riders, Friday night was a bit of a circus, not a good look for harness racing.

    box seat ,debate on blood spinning

    What a post you are correct that is exactly what Bishop said with regards to horses lungs.I think this is the reason that it has raised so many posts on the subject.

    The Cattle Prodder

    Arjay you and the trainer are complete jerks for doing and condoning that, if you did that to one of my horses, I would shove the prodder up you where the sun dont shine, I hope all the hairs around your arse turn into fish hooks. You have to be a complete tosser to come on a public forum and discuss this sort of crap.

    Dexter Dunn.

    P4P . Give it a rest, this has to go through the courts match fixing became a serious crime in 2014 , as you will be well aware, if the RIU believed that match fixing was happening, they were obligated to involve the police, once again you will be well aware of this, to demean them and the police at this stage does not help the people you are defending if anything it makes it worse, for them and the others. To post that government told the police to turn a blind eye to the use of cannabis apart from medicinal and party drugs is rubbish, they are illegal and until a law is passed through parliament to legalize them. I hope that other posters on this site have enough intelligence to understand the point I am trying to make.I also believe that trying to intimidate and abuse others on this site does yourself no favors. I hope you have a nice day.

    Mick The Name Dropper

    Mick do us a favor and stay in Australia, Trackside get Mat Cross and Greg on the box seat far more enjoyable if MG cannot work it out, that one of the all time greats Lazarus was bred ,born and owned in NZ won 2 NZ CUPS and a host other Group 1 races, and could quite conceivably go to be one of the all time world greats. Australasian horse what a complete ludicrous, dumb, stupid statement. I would imagine that the past connections of Lazarus would be over the moon with that comment, yeah rite.

    Jewels to Addington 2019

    They call it progress, it will now alternate between NZM and ALEX ,the rich get richer and all the support, and the poor get poorer and no support, that's the way the system works. Great system if you are one of the rich clubs.

    Jewels to Addington 2019

    I love jewels day, really enjoy mile racing on the day { but not everyday} the expectation of a world record, but that is not going to happen at Addington they will run over 1950, most trainers will tell you that 1950 racing is brutal especially on young horses . I have been lucky enough to have owned and trained horses to win at Addington but there is no real atmosphere there nowadays, and unless I have a horse that qualifies to participate I and my mates and wives wont be there, it will be a day sitting around the TV at home.
