  1. Have they ever looked into an exchange type model for NZ racing and sports? Could be a new way to promote the sport to a newer tech savvier generation? You can then also target it as a trading platform with the ability to back/lay much like a day trader can in the financial markets. Maybe its not feasible, I know in Australia the taxation model ruined trading on AUS races, however its massive in the UK/IRE. A thought anyway to try differentiate our product seeing as it feels like we are stuffed anyway.
  2. Thats a bugger, was hoping they may be able to sneak through using the restaurant/bar rulings.
  3. Are we allowed back to the track to watch at Level 2, or still restricted to essential staff only?
  4. Yes that is the major problem we have. Your staunch supporters like we have on this site, then there is the vocal minority that want to see the sport gone, and then the vast majority that are indifferent to it. The problem is, the indifferent people as you say would not notice if it disappeared, and not going to go out of there way to support it.
  5. Any of the big AUS bookies are easy to deal with, never had to wait more then 48 hours for funds to be in my account, add Betfair to the list as well. A few of the smaller ones were hard work getting funds, mainly because of the international transfer process, but always got my money in the end. Just be sure to verify all your accounts/cards straight away to avoid any delays in withdrawals.
  6. Yes, was loving trackside 2 coverage of Rosehill, fantastic getting the actual mounting yard vision as well, needs to be done more often for the big days, hopefully they can utilise trackside 3 for this type of coverage once racing returns in full.
  7. Yes you can, but its a pain in the a** to get verified. Documents have to be witnessed/signed by a Notary Public. I found most weren't interested, and when I did finally find one, you are paying $150+ just get verified.
  8. With next to no sport available at the moment, has there been any thought into trying to get onto the main Sky sport or Prime channels for Saturday racing at least? Could be a chance to get racing in front of people with nothing else to watch that otherwise dont venture to the trackside channels. Also. at least we wouldn't have to answer the otherwise embarrassing question of where are all the on course spectators.

    Question time from someone pretty green about the breeding side. How do they decide what horses go in book 1/2/3? I'm assuming they charge a premium to have your horse entered in book 1 versus 2 and 3?

    Managed to pick up a copy from my local BP this morning. Havent had a chance to read yet but looks the part anyway. Only thing if I'm being picky, the size is a pain in the butt if you are intending taking it with you to the races.

    Is there a list of retailers available? Or is it just TAB's for a start?
  13. How great would that be, parade ring coverage, prelims all shown beforehand, the wrap up afterwards. Instead now we have to cut away the minute the race finishes to another venue. Take a leaf out of the like of coverage. Reality for me these days, unless I am on course, I am more likely to bet on AUS racing thanks to the like of free coverage which includes the things I mentioned earlier.
  14. Most recent club statement said they have engaged lawyers to take action to try sort out the insurance battle, this was late September, but have not seen anything further come from it, and the final outcome wasn't expected til early 2020 best case. Be fantastic if the whispers are correct though.
  15. Are there no form guide these days which are delivered to service stations? I know the informant has gone, but thought there was another one? Normally I print them out at work but got sidetracked this week so figured I'd grab one from a local petrol station or dairy. No luck so far from 3 petrol stations and 2 dairys, guess I'll just give it a miss.
