    She looks to be progressing through the grades nicely. Had a couple of goes at Group races. No joy yet but she still seems to be progressing. Trainers usually get flack for being over ambitious :-)

    Lets Help Ellie Stokes

    Yes lets. Millions has been raised for the victims of the Christchurch horror. Surely we can get some thousands together for this young girl whose life has been turned upside down by a trackwork accident.

    NZRB’s open letter to The Informant

    The above sums up what really frustrates me. I acknowledge punters are a very important part of the industry but without owners and their horses there is no industry in the first place. Your Joe Average owner supplying the product gets a really poor deal - particularly on raceday. When the owner is shelling out tens of thousands a year to race a horse - to be treated as "on the outside looking in" is unacceptable. Some may think it's a very small part of the picture but I reckon it turns more people off than is acknowledged. Regards The Messara report - I don't like the idea of the proposed grabbing and sale of assets but who has got a better fund raising solution that can be put into play immediately? The situation is dire.

    Waikato trainers Ruakaka/Hastings

    Hastings for me. Travel cost maybe a bit more but no Auckland traffic to navigate & no sand kick back. More midweek winter racing at Taupo would be a good option too IMO.

    Watch and Bet (Frozen?)

    Sky not working - have been thinking about getting rid of Sky anyway as only use it to watch racing & might as well use Watch & Bet all the time. So no Trackside available therefore no money spent through my TAB account yday. Granted it wouldn't have been enough to prop up the industry for long :-) but I bet there were probably thousands of others like me who did not spend yesterday after giving up waiting for Watch & Bet to come back online = many thousands of dollars lost income for the NZRB.
