  1. Interesting indeed. Tote aside, will this mean that the new racing operation will stand alongside HK racing as a separate but complementary entity - or will it be an assimilation into a overarching 'Chinese' model, I wonder?
  2. Wingatui a week ago, Timaru Sunday, Riverton yesterday, Riccarton tomorrow, Ashburton four days after that. Plenty of opportunities just at present. Any horse with some pretensions to good form would be targeting better money at Riccarton, surely? not the sluggers that sloshed around yesterday. And as well, there must have been quite a few denied runs with the decision to make the 74 middle distance race an amateur.
  3. Cut out half way through? Did I miss anything specific from there?
  4. Also, we don't have well defined 'country' versus 'city' training areas. Matamata and Cambridge have a distinctly rural flavour...but together, house most of the horses in training. Auckland city certainly doesn't. How do you define that here? Are Christchurch trainers only those Riccarton based? How do you categorise one of the biggest teams e.g. the Parsons'...based at the beach? Timaru is a fair sized place, hardly 'country' , but for this purpose, possibly? as well, by the time these venues are closed down there won't be many left to call 'country'.
  5. I see nothing at Wingatui either, I thought they were down to host jumping as well ? might have got that wrong....but Timaru still has jumps races on offer. So far.....
  6. Got cross-eyed reading all the twaddle...which basically said that soil samples showed even distribution all through the profile and the experts felt the track was presented in good order. Clearly they were wrong. So what has changed? Those experts have ( I think) been changed, but the next lot seen to be singing from the same score.
  7. Given the way he has been given the middle finger I bet he wished he had kept everything withheld from the report.
  8. Any thoughts as to the reason for the Irish dominance over the Carnivals? I'm sure there must be one, I don't think the good English trainers have suddenly become incompetent or lost all their good horses overnight.
  9. Add the trial winners and those showing up in their early races, to those sold from sales, and the quality is well and truly plundered, don't you think?
  10. I was advised of the Norwegian site a while ago, it is amazingly accurate.
  11. Agree wholeheartedly. The track is well prepared/presented, and facilities for both horses and the public very acceptable.
  12. Don't think Omoto comes into the 5x use category....but good little venue regardless. Wingatui has had its issues in the past, but of late, has presented an outstanding track.
