    Haven't we been taking advice/employing Aussies for the last couple of decades , That didn't seem to have been that successful ? Some of these small clubs that are going to be closed have proven very successful at attracting some Very good sponsors that now I would say would also be lost to the Industry , I don't think the Suits actually realise the true loss to the industry in the closure of these smaller country clubs.

    I am no grass/turf expert but it seems obvious what's going to happen if you sprinkle water on , perhaps "other Jurisdiction's" Irrigate in larger volumes well before a race meeting getting it to soak in making roots go deeper. We always used to race on hard and fast tracks 20 years ago no problem , if you got a bit of rain in the last 24/48 hours because there was always a good root structure the water could get away through the soil because it was fractured thanks to a good deep root system, everything held together , No real issues? but now with irrigated tracks you have grass roots only going horizontal you are left with a hard pan just under the surface that moisture cant get through therefore it gives you the " Mat on the Varnished floor syndrome" very slippery?? .

    Fantastic Post BLUE , I have been preaching this in posts for years , I always quote a Michael {Pitman interview with Andre Neil he was asked what is the biggest problem in racing his reply was "the irrigation of tracks " Look at the times they run at Woodville yesterday on a unirrigated dead track, 1.09 and 1.10 for 1200mtres Irrigated tracks are so shifty because they have no deep vertical root structure at all, they have horizontal root system about 2 inches deep so the top inch or 2 just scoops out or shifts , you have got to wonder how hard some horses try when they feel the ground shift under them?

    Follow the rail lad....

    Watched a race last year at Awapuni , It was the first race of the day , a 1400mtr start and Robbie Hannam went straight to the outside rail from the starting gates and never came in closer.

    2019 new stallions

    Although I haven't bred a thoroughbred for 7 or 8 years now I always preferred proven stallions against new flashy unproven stallions , I would be very interested to know How or with what statistics you use to define Upside in a stallion?

    I have been preaching this for years and quoting your interview with Andre many times , Racing clubs have been forced into purchasing expensive irrigation systems because some "Shiny Arse" in an office says we should , my money says the shiny arse has never put a foot on a racetrack let alone raced or bet on a horse . Hope your health is on the improve
