  1. How about posting your real name so we can all have a go at that funny man!
  2. From Richard Callanders' column on Racenet this week: I keep hearing whispers that former CEO of Racing Victoria Bernard Saundry, who is currently CEO of NZ Racing, could be parachuted back into a high profile role within Victorian racing.
  3. Loveracing is the NZTR website. I don't think you would get a better opinion of the Cambridge track than a local Trainer, who from previous posts, does not hold back on letting the industry know if things are not travelling in the right direction. Hope you get over your Covid.
  4. This should come under Integrity. Does this open it up to riders doing whatever they want in these areas where there are no cameras? Wasn't Blossom Lady a trotter? This site is for real horse racing.
  5. Full circle. They put TAB's into pubs to stop the money leaking to the Bookies. People want to bet but the TAB don't want to take their money.
  6. Don't know the bloke, seems nice, but do remember once on a South Island trip on a Saturday afternoon driving around he put our whole family to sleep, we only woke up when the Aussie races came on.
  7. Pretty sure Opie won the VRC Oaks on her around about the 5 /11/ 1999. She ran 2nd in SA Oaks with RS Dye, to Episode.
  8. Why does it take Thoroughbreds at least a month longer to start back?
  9. When are NZTR going to come out with some sort of announcement re the immediate future of Racing. Are you planning for a return to racing once we drop back to a Level 3, or a you sitting on your hands waiting? Surely, we are advanced enough to keep Racing going on a Level 3, they are doing it in Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and parts of the USA. Have you contacted Trainers to see how many they have kept in work and what rating band they are, so you can prep meetings to suit? Not everyone has tipped their horses out for a spell. If we are not planning on continuing, our good horses and
  10. Why would any CEO introduce a new Website that the majority of his customers don't understand. They had a perfectly good Site but discarded it.
  11. Likewise, I used to have up to 50 bets at the weekend, it was my hobby, now I go and place 2 or 3 bets at the TAB on a Saturday morning like I did in the early 80's. The few that say the TAB website is great need their bloody heads read. It's a disgrace.
  12. Has there ever been a winner disqualified before?
  13. Interesting read here. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/03/sports/kentucky-derby-safety-horses.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  14. Looks like the new Sky head of sport is not too interested in Horse Racing, no ESPN coverage of the Derby this morning like previous years. Seems he prefers humans kicking and scratching each other in the UFC. Could Trackside not put Tan and Co. on this morning to cover the most popular horse race in the world. Even Tan would be better than elevator music, just.
  15. Since closing my account I have noticed on the TAB Dashboard on my phone that my account is still alive, just locked, and it can be unlocked at any stage. Is this done so John can fudge the figures of how many accounts have been closed?
