    I can’t understand why NZTR doesn’t ban them 
    Jockeys should be allowed to carry them but only for safety and guidance and they can’t rotate them which basically means an end to hitting behind the saddle 
    Mind you such changes would require vision and an understanding of animal welfare .. and we’re dealing with NZTR here

    Usual story 
    I put up the prize, $300 for first, $200 for second..HQ voucher by arrangement, expires November 1st this year ... round one this Saturday, last round Easter Monday 

    No one from over at the smelly poo pond can enter 
    G1 triple points ( includes both million dollar races at Ellerslie Saturday ) but if your horse wins you cop a triple point penalty, 150 points 
    G2 double points and double penalty 
    G3 & listed just your regular points and 50 point penalty  
    Mercy rule, you’re gone once you fall 300 points behind 
    Who's doing the scoring ??
    Good luck.

    I don’t mind being suspended ... mind you I don’t mind the blindfold and gag either, as long as there’s a safe word like pineapple .. but let’s be absolutely clear, pineapple is only a safe word ... it’s not a sex toy, well it might be a toy in Cambridge but not in the Viaduct

    I should add that not all RIU staff are rotten....in fact some are thoroughly decent, but sadly a few high up the food chain can’t be trusted at all

    Tassie the RIU is ruining racing.
    i can’t tell you what I know because I have to work with them but their behaviour is appalling and they have no compunction about fabricating evidence 
    As long as the enforcers are going to behave without integrity the sane should apply to the licensees 
    I should add that the JCA is great, I find them fair and decent and it’s only their inherent integrity that’s saving the industry from gross abuse by the RIU

    Im not at all sure that DM is one of their mob or was  put in the Chair position by them. There may have been some bad blood after the way he was let go after he took over the CEO position at Addington. That said he is probably way above all that sort of behaviour given his constant success as a racing administrator and academic record.

    Owned by a NZ based syndicate, the majority owner being Waikato Stud 
    They had the vision to buy him and syndicate him.....that makes him a subject of NZ in terms of horseman’s input and ownership, and eventually his career as a sire 
    Is there a part of that you don’t understand ?

    My original comment was about the ability of Kiwi horsemen and their ongoing ability to compete on the global stage..
    The acquisition of Super Seth is in my opinion a testament to the skills of those horsemen who had the vision to step up and buy the horse.....now he’s NZ owned I’m saying the horsemen and woman involved, including syndicate investors, should take some credit.
    Not worth arguing about though....he’s NZ owned in my eyes and I stand by my original comment that having three contenders in the big Mile is quite remarkable
