    Questionable Handling..

    Race one at Cambridge today The handler of the 8 dog needs putting out to pasture as far as boxing dogs go. Watch the replay and see how she struggled to box the dog and actually kneed the dog upwards assisting it to flip right over. This is not the first time at all she has needed assistance to box and maybe the Stewards could look into this.

    Questionable Handling..

    Boxing first , fair call, but surely this Handler/Trainer should not be allowed to box the dog. The kneeing of dogs to box away is the sign of a physical problem maybe but in no way does it allow full control of the dog. This is a regular habit Shirley has and maybe some other handlers could offer to help her out.?

    An Open Letter To Mauro, Sean and the Board.

    Yep he is standing on his trailer and watching from outside the track. He is not allowed on any race course and rightly so...

    Brian Martin

    You are so right Seddon and we all know this. Trying to fathom his calls on live trackside is hard enough so listening on Radio is just a joke. Trev has given a great service to our sport and is a genuine "Nice Guy", but there comes a time when Common sense must prevail...There are several young callers in the Wings and tomorrow another will be given an opportunity at Palmerston to remind us what calling could be like if the system was fair. Good luck Brian for tomorrow,

    A sad time this week for the sport and Untimely for a dog to put down at the track yesterday (Wanganui) with a laceration to a toe when we have lost a couple of lovely people this week that would never had condoned that.!!!. Serious questions now need to be asked...Why and how was this allowed to happen ?? The fact a beautiful dog was put dead after it pulled up with a laceration to a toe MUST be addressed surely?

    Thought the Trackside coverage on the Pop up chanel was brilliant. Cameras on the action of the bidders and the dynamics and reactions fantastic. With the cameras not being focused intensly on the lots walking the ring makes for exciting watching Well Done.....

    Blazin’ Audrey

    To be blatently honest.. I was watching her with a trained eye of experience. I thought that Audrey had gone a sizzling race and had accepted that Totally, UNTILL I saw the head on replay....Their is no doubt she turned her head and no one could argue against this!! A tough call for the stipe in this case but my concern lies with INTEGRITY and the Concern for the connections that with a power packed final could have their dreams a result of continuing bias towards this kennel by Mr.Whiterod... Should he perhaps "Recuse" himself ??

    New years wish..

    Maybe a complete freeze on breeding and importing of dogs for a time to allow some form of control at some point. If we want our dogs to race and live longer this could help solve what I see presently is the main problem facing the sport. The imbalance of dogs being bred versus the amount able to be kept a live and rehomed MUST be addressed, sooner the better.

    New years wish..

    I believe this post should be viewed as it is the most common sense suggestion or post in a long while. May all the cafers have a brilliant New Year and may racing be honest and heaps of fun. Do you think it would be wise for the future of Greyhound racing to have your Board adress the number of dogs being born in keeping with the maximum numbers factually that can be rehomed?. As an observer an lover of animals, I see the present problem is greed for the sake of a Dollar rather than common sense and the welfare of these lovely, graceful dogs that are now being abused in a way....Keep on the path you are at present and the smart ones making all the money in time will dissapear and unfortunately take every one down with them... 6

    So True, Rules, Greyhound Racing is a Family sport for fun but most importantly is a sport where the dogs themselves are not treated as just a number and treated as part of the family. The latest huge list Registered by the large trainer is only part of the equation. Where are the others in the litters that wern't fortunate enough to have what it takes to make the dollar train and their siblings that were injured during rearing . Stats show they havn't been rehomed as that part of the industry is just not able to achieve this. I would say at a guess a huge percentage of pups born don't get registered, I wonder if the new look N.Z.G.R.A. is accounting for these , after all you pay a fee to them at birth for them Don't you?

    Mad harry

    Is it about time that the Racing Integrity Unit is Restructed? The Industry Does need such a unit, but in the present format that was founded with the likes of Cameron George, Ross Neal etc that set an example of disgrace right from the commencement maybe it's time to revisit and set things straight. For most within the industry it is shamefull..Is it time for these bludgers of retired Jockeys, ex cops that could not cut the mustard in the real world and hangers on to go Fishing..? On a brighter note Rick Quirk of late, has appeared to step up to the mark and is delivering results that are worthy and fair ..
