    I know exactly where your coming from Shad ....memories are all we leave with so stack them up mate!
    I had a change of heart after talking to SKY today as they are fading out the old technology so all of us will eventually have our boxes replaced and upgraded to the new box ......they did get me with a $100 technician fee to install it but I always reckon the $100 relieves the headache of trying to do it yourself haha!
    So they are bringing it in next week and I promise to report back in on wether its all its cracked up to be OK .....I do like the idea of a 'voice command' through your remote which will be handy for us 'oldies' .....so fingers crossed.
    Cheers ....FF.

    Be careful FF with voice command I asked for Natural Attraction and was thinking David Attenborough was on it, but I got Naked Attraction now that's a bit different I don't know how, but it finished up on loop.

    FFS NO ! It should be to .
    And your math is terrible , you were already in the 99% that didn't know , if you are saying you do , and it is now dubious , it will now be 97% .
    Welcome to the team , you , me and Miss Jools , scary movies .
    Is it too late too back out ?

    I keep the old one,wasn't really tempted, as it's got the race record of a horse I had a interest in, can't beat a trip down memory lane, especially those winning ones, the unlucky ones, even the disappointing runs, can't bear to delete them.

    I look forward to Royal Ascot and the Cheltenham festival more than most NZ racing . Very sad . It's amazing that tradition is so fervently held onto in other older racing jurisdictions but we seem to have very a nonchalant attitude to ours .

    I agree. There are probably even people who haven't noticed that the "time honoured" Parliamentary and North Island Challenge Stakes both go around this weekend.

    Never too hard , simply couldn't care less , the term pro active left racing many moons ago .
    But two things jump out at me , 1 not many will be going to the races to start with , 2 , given a choice most would pick the rugby anyway .

    Ashburton gets hammered, and they only have the one grass track.    i.e.  the course proper gets used for track gallops, trials and raceday.   
    They do a pretty good job with very limited resources and I suspect a period of 'down time' was well needed to do some work on it.
    I am a bit in the dark as to why the Riccarton turf couldn't have been used?

    So 6 races Wednesday and 7 on Thursday , why ? why not run them all on one day and make life simpler for people .
    Races deleted due to insufficient numbers , blah , blah , blah .
    They could make digging a hole look like brain surgery .
