  1. McNeill on Feilding gives a positive live example, but the Committees of Gore, Timaru & Smallsville won't listen. Every report ever commissioned, including Messara's, indicates Teeny, Tiny and Dwarf need to close and merge with a larger track nearby. Everyone in racing has always agreed that needs to happen, so long as they aren't one of them. Just heard John Allen on Weigh In, who like all before him, use the catch phrase "the clubs need to consult and talk amongst one another to form a solution", but what he is really saying is "I run this organisation but don't think I'm going to do what is right!!" First we had The Two Ronnies, then Hale & Pace, now we have John & Glenda. Adopt the Messara report in it's totality, he has a track record more impressive than anyone involved in NZ racing (paid or unpaid). Every participant in racing wants change, requires increased returns, needs better facilities, but when a plan is presented no one wants to start. I'm now comfortable knowing, once NZ Racing is gone, we will still have NSW & Victorian racing each week, light years ahead of NZ racing anyway, with Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth carnivals thrown in for good measure. Support total.........................or accept what we have will remain, but in an even more declining form and every participant moaning even louder than they do now!!
  2. For the last 30 years racing people have been saying racing is finished and for the next 30 years racing people will be saying racing is finished, so that will be 60 years of racing is finished, but surprise it won't be finished.
  3. Seriously though, with such a shocking performasnce week after week, they should be sacked. How hard can it be to select one horse each week, yet they miss miss miss.....sure we all would miss too, but not so regularly as these so call experts do, they pick like beginners.
  4. Whilst I love this horse and his sintillating finish, it must be said the great mare always ran on the pace and could have a final 600m and 200m equal to or better than what Chautauqua achieved, so how could he possible get past her?

    Well done Mr Waller, I hoped you would spell Winx after last Saturday's win. Now I can't wait until the Spring, then next Autumn, then..................
  6. Simple stuff being screwed up by NZ Racing (or NZTR) employees who don't have a passion for or knowledge of racing. To them it is just a job, It is not the first time that person or group of people have made simple rookie mistakes. They should get more than a kick up the arse, it should be a kick out of the organisation. Read the notes about the programme, it says something like a roundup of Derby day and discussion about the Melbourne Cup. If there were actually people working in the organisation that knew racing and had a passion, these things would only happen once, shouldn't happen once, but lets be slightly forgiving. You are right, if the small and simple things are not done right, we can't expect anything better.
  7. Really, are we that desparate for racing!! Can't all participants have a day or two off to relax, go away, spend time with the family, do whatever they want at Easter. Are your family lives so boring that you are at a loss if there is no racing? We moan about field sizes, just look at North Island Saturday, so having a day or two off may help before the tracks get into the usual Winter Heavy and avoiding watching NZ racing is a better option than watching. Always rely on Australia for my racing viewing.
  8. She really was good, I remember one commentator saying "La Mer won in spite of Des"!! Noel and Des were poles apart.
  9. It would be great if NZ journalists actually started regularly reporting with honesty and backbone. Time for accountability and transparency, maybe if the journalists run under that umbrella, more within racing and NZTR might be forced to as well.
  10. I listen most Saturday's to Pete's show 8-9am and mark down each of their bets of the day. I cannot believe how useless and highly consistent most are with their non winning tips. For professional (supposedly) punters, they are really pretty useless. It is time to stop ringing them if they continue regularly losing. How can they regularly not pick one horse to win!!! Some on here could pick oine and do better, they certainly couldn't do any worse. We regularly hear about a certain 0900 number having success during the week, but never seems to be able to pick one horse to win on Saturday. They all pretty much suck.
  11. Might be the same people each week, hey just like Race Cafe (!!), but they do talk about the racing the previous day and the current issues in racing. If it sounds the same each week to you, maybe you should go to Bay Audiology!!
  12. A "Winx and a nod" will tell you it will be all eyes on Randwick this Saturday and the next Saturday as well. The potential for excellent mouth watering fields is awesome, can't wait.
  13. Too much racing, not enough horses. Great to have a quiet Easter, will be interesting to see the field sizes the next couple of weeks.
  14. It is not the paper's fault. The TAB pay for space and advise what they want in that space. I used to buy either a NZ Herald or a Dominion each Friday, but as of a week ago I have stopped.
  15. Every one should watch (replays) Weigh In from this morning, Shaun well done, hit the nail on the head.
