  1. Just a suggestion - put your horse in the 65. Has been done plenty of times, with some success. Not that 1800 constitutes a 'staying' race...but still...have a go and see if you get a start. Send NZTR a map while you are at it.
  2. You're quite right on both counts.
  3. No jumping at Wingatui at all, now.
  4. sorry, too late to edit the stupid typo.
  5. Yeah. And just to endorse shove comments, Southland used to end racing after the Riverton Easter meeting. Dunedin's Queen's Birthday meeting ( 3 days from memory) finished that Club's involvement. Rex Cochrane would move his racing team to Waimate as racing moved up the island heading towards the National meeting. The management knew, in those days, how cold and wet and difficult it was to conduct racing at that time of the year. Now we have random days all over the place, no strategic plans and little to structure race preparations on.
  6. I have a sneaking feeling that any - if any - stakes increase will go to the middle / upper end. Which, if I am right, shows how utterly out of touch this mob are.
  7. Thanks, she deserved it after several very genuine efforts.
  8. I think that comparisons are, inevitably, subjective; and given the impossibility of running them all in competition together, futile. Opposition, training methods, track conditions, all play a part in a horse's record. So, while I couldn't - and wouldn't - presume to 'rate' any of them, surely La Mer has to be in the mix?
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
