    Jefferson got a reaction from THE TORCH in First Call Tips   
    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.

    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..................

    Irish, I clicked the like button on what you wrote above, BUT i think it deserves more. I BLOODY LOVE what you wrote, as I was so frustrated trying to follow the programe at 11.00am in the morning and again at 1.00am the next morning.
    John Allen, I know all about the big picture, BUT until you can get the little things right YOU WILL NEVER GET THE BIG THINGS RIGHT.

    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.

    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.

    Jefferson got a reaction from We're Doomed in easter Monday racing a joke   
    It won't do any harm to have all racing (almost all) participants have a day or two off. Maybe out of it we can get some Saturday meetings with good sized fields during the next couple of weeks. It would be good to have some reasonable NZ racing leading into the magnificent Randwick Championships. What was the point in watching any NZ racing yesterday before tuning into Rosehill.

    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.

    Jefferson got a reaction from Turny in $1.70 Winx to win v $1.73 Turn Me Loose to place??.....   
    I know everyone will scream "hindsight", but after Winx first run back this campaign, there was never a doubt everyone else was running for 2nd or 3rd after that, so if you are going to back anything for a place, it's not 3 places your money is running for but 2. We are in the company of greatness watching Winx. You can't mention Winx and TML in the same breath, they are professionally poles apart.

    If it waddles like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. If it sounds like horseshit and it smells like horseshit, then it probably is.

    Pleased to see that horses have finally had races taken off them and prize money will be going to those promoted.
     I guess any farm manager can make a mistake with administering cobalt to troughs........just a coincidence I guess that it happenned on the days or days before horses won.
    Just wondering tho.....as the three horses under investigation were found with high cobalt levels on different dates does this mean that every horse at the stable had access to this highly dosed water over a period of 2 months or was it just an unfortunate coincidence that the water was overdosed only on the days that 3 that won.
    How many other horses had access to these overdosed troughs and placed 2nd 3rd or 4th and were not therefore tested?

    Extrapolating that scenario the 3 horses were running with the cattle before being loaded on the transporter? A 600+ reading post-race many hours later with the cobalt 1/2 life break-down rate. I know I am stupid to be racing horses but NOT THAT BLOODY STUPID!

    My guess is that the "fines" for Moody and Wexford should or will be about the same. 
    Both it seems were brought about by "accident" as compared to Daren Smith, Mark Cavanagh, his son and Danny O'Brien. 
    I am not sure or convinced about what happened in the Hope case!
    I wonder if our jurisdiction is talking to those over the ditch regarding penalties given the similarity; that being cobalt was not purposely administered so it seems.

    Strikes will never happen, but if it was to fly, Waikato Racing is the Club to target, with President Karyn and husband David, they will take action if they think Waikato will be affected. Stud owners Paqtrick, Mark and Gary won't let Waikato get effected. Personally owners, trainers and jockeys need every race day to present opportunities to gain income.
    No point in taking a petition of no matter what number of signatures to the Racing Minister, he only knows what his back room advisors and racing industry heads tell him. He is so light weight, don't waste time and effort on him. If you can gain enough signatures you take it to John the Prime Minister who focuses more constantly on ratings than policy. He will need a pick me up after he receives a flag slap on the face later this month. If he feels every signature on the petition will turn on him, will publically maintain pressure on him, he will fold like a pack of cards in the wind. The first step would be to pressure him into putting up a Racing Minister with a spine and passion for the industry we all on here have, irrespective of at time individual differences in views, then at least we have someone going into bat for us in the beehive.
