    True Story...almost.

    Mate you’re asleep at the wheel....I’ve already been there twice to look at your business with a view to taking you out because you’ve got no idea what you’re doing. I told you, your funder ( whom the cafe is named after ) got me to look at it, but I declined the opportunity to touch it I find the description of it as a leading Cafe hilarious, it’s a dog !! As for you managing Tabac for Neil Finn...I asked the big breweries, they said Steve Who ? Shall we talk about the Mollies buy out and what the purchases allege happened there ?? Count your fingers......legend my arse.....leading AUCKLAND barman my arse.....

    True Story...almost.

    To give CT some credit he did get one thing right, his cuzzie ( poor bastard ) did manage Mollies ( because he bought the lease ) Other than that this thread exposed the low life lying name dropping turd yet again.....he’s just a socially immature of no consequence, and whilst I’m not in favour of extreme violence I would have no issue if some good bastard chutneyed Tommo ...we’d all be better off .

    Follow the rail lad....

    Is there any other country in the world where the jockeys follow the outside rail rather than the inside ? Certainly not their fault, but a sad indictment of NZ racing, club management, and the neglect of tracks / drainage surely.

    RT you’re a funny bastard, I loved the “Stevie Wonder” and “blue veined cornet” lines.......we need more of you on Cafe

    Oh FFS, it means my half time had me on track for a sub 3...comfortably, but like your parents i completely fucked it up and had to live with the consequences

    True Story...almost.

    Why does it matter how he knows who ? Auckland is a small town, the Hawkesbys and Harts, and their kids, are know by many of us in hospo...they’re just customers FFS ..... If I wanted to name drop they wouldn’t make our top 100, mainly because they’re modest under the radar people Just because you’ve got this weird infatuation with name dropping it doesn’t follow that everyone else has, or that they are pretending to be on first name terms with strangers

    True Story...almost.

    West Coast, Gisborne, CHCH Commonwealth Games course, Rotorua ( that was the 3.12 ) I might have gassed it early there as I went through the half well under 3 hours but hit the wall badly up that rise down the back of the lake .....plus the Coast to Coast...... Don't worry about me, I don’t need to make shit up like you. As for your formula....FO..you run what you run depending on how much you train and whether you’re a one paced plodder or a good stayer.....I’m a plodder and I’m no athlete, although I’m clearly a whole lot better than you, as God and Darwin intended. On that basis I can only hope you’re not breeding. As for JB, he owns ( or is the main partner and funder ) in the failing Cafe you describe as being so successful, and yes he’s called me in twice to consider taking it over or to invest in it and change it....both times I’ve said “thanks but no thanks”.....despite what you said it’s really a failure, and my spin is that it’s just surviving on a bit of traffic from the Cafe a couple of doors down ( that is really successful ).

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Trackside keep panning the crowd down there....there’s a few young ‘uns there but they’re a heavy boned lot, peppered with “ rangas “ It certainly ain’t The Viaduct and I doubt they’d have troubled the cashier at the Gucci shop any time recently.

    What’s the go with Riverton

    That’s not their job....eating donuts ( and cream buns ) is the job of the bastard child

    Follow the rail lad....

    Isn’t it a reflection of the fact those running the show don’t actually care about racing ? We can only blame ourselves, we let them hijack the industry media division, we stood back and did nothing while they ignored our specific needs but gushed over rugby, basketball, boxing etc...... Imagine the uproar if sports was treated as we are....if The Blues team just had starting numbers with no names or reserves listed !!

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Once I’ve had a read I’ll do just that...however.....you need to give me time, I’m off to Bali for two weeks this Thursday, then early May I’ve got Felaar running in Melbourne and Consensus in Queensland.....I’m being stretched a bit and sorting racing’s problems out is not a priority sorry.

    Follow the rail lad....

    No, but if they’re using the same modus operandi I guess that kinda sums NZ Racing up .....we’re just inbred apple pickers

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Be nice John, don’t be bitter about the breeders getting the heave ho The ARC has been quite astute and they’ve used their income well.....plus there’s more to come....you know that

    Ok, disclosure time, I’m mates with three of them and know the other two.....I’m biased......but I do know they’re asking the right questions

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Dock the industry doesn’t listen to licensees, you must know that !! Licensees are an amusement and fascination when successful, but second class citizens when they’re not. Meantime the bastard child ( aka The Trainers Assn ) is beholden to NZTR, a bit like the gimp in Pulp Fiction, and they only offer input and advice on donuts and cream buns... That said I have some faith in the MAC group and their consultative & inclusive attitude. You might find they seek advice from the likes of those you’ve mentioned, and that’ll be a good thing.

    What’s the go with Riverton

    That money belongs to the AUCKLAND Racing Club, they’ve managed their affairs well, unlike most clubs in NZ, and definitely unlike NZTR, and on that basis I cannot see any scenario whereby the ARC would become industry benefactors, or share their hard earned wealth with anyone else. Have you read the tale of “the little red hen” ? Here we go In the tale, the little red hen finds a grain of wheat and asks for help from the other farmyard animals (most adaptations feature three animals, a pig, a cat, and a rat, duck, goose, dog, or goat[1]) to plant it, but they all refuse. At each later stage (harvest, threshing, milling the wheat into flour, and baking the flour into bread), the hen again asks for help from the other animals, but again she doesn't receive any help. Finally, the hen has completed her task and asks who will help her eat the bread. This time, all the previous non-participants eagerly volunteer, but she refuses them, stating that no one helped her with her work. Thus, the hen eats it with her chicks, leaving none for anyone else

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Insider / Liz / Shad Don’t start me on comparisons between Riverton and Ellerslie or I’ll raise the rather delicate subject of one club dabbling in pokie fraud whilst the other has accumulated 40 million in cash reserves ( and that figure is likely to go significantly higher very soon ). I don’t doubt for one second that Riverton is unique, and a decent track, but to somehow suggest it’s a shining example on the NZ racing landscape, and Ellerslie’s not, is downright bizarre Give yourselves an uppercut, all three of you.

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Riverton will always get bigger crowds than AUCKLAND....because there’s nothing else to fucking do in Riverton Aucklanders on the other hand are busy making informed choices, and Racing isn’t on the radar of “informed choices”.

    Group 1 ?? No wonder you couldn’t see....apparently you couldn’t think either.....had a few had we ??

    What’s the go with Riverton

    On course t/o means absolutely nothing.....other than that attendees at Riverton can’t use iPhones or iPads ( have they even got fibre and wireless down there ? ) so they have to use on course terminals, and presumably they still use cash......Aucklanders on the other hand are quite sophisticated......
