    Some Good News

    I guess being an essential worker keeps you in your routine, rather than being in total lockdown, although the supermarket workers should be given a wee bonus, as they are effectively putting their life on the line, so the rest can survive.

    Parliamentary horse trading

    May as well toss the towel in now, doomed either way, don't have a scrap of faith in labour who upset all the gun owners, trying to lock up all the farmers land, and now trying to flog all the racing clubs assets, upsetting all the whitebaiters, don't think I will be voting, national be no better.

    Racing Bill Submissions

    vinny on madam hass

    Very hard habit to break in my opinion, an old trainer fella would say, any bugger can teach them to pull, but I haven't seen many that can stop them from doing it.

    Southland Saturday

    Certainly some interesting riding tactics in the cup, charge of the light brigade, first two home had economical runs most of the trip, what could one say with a one race taking the prize, good on them.
