Pegasus 9 reacted to rdytdy in Jason Waddell off To Oz
I have no doubt that Jason's exceptional riding ability can see him compete at the highest level in Australia.
He is coming off the back of a record breaking season here in NZ. After resuming in September following six months off after having surgery in just seven months he smashed his record for stakes winners and stake money for a season. Eleven G1 rides saw him with 4 wins, 2 seconds, 1 third, 3 fourths and a fifth.
His last three rides before Covid were successive winners at Trentham including the G1 NZ Oaks on Jennifer Eccles.
With the uncertainty here in NZ with regard to our racing the time is right for Jason to have a crack in Australia and I look forward to seeing him being successful over there as well.
Good luck Jason.
Pegasus 9 reacted to We're Doomed in Any legal repercussions for Industry's collapse?
This is obviously one of many areas in which I have no expertise at all, but it is fairly obvious to almost everyone that the Racing Industry has been incompetently managed for a long time. Under different management the Industry may have been better able to withstand the current turmoil.
Are the Board members who made all of the incompetent decisions that have virtually destroyed an iconic NZ sport/industry legally responsible in anyway for their incompetence? Are there any parallels with the Mainzeal directors?
Could Racing Industry participants: trainers, jockeys, breeders etc, take a class action again the Board members who have destroyed the Industry?

I took this as merely the bandaid , to get current bills paid by 20th month......I guess too some [a lot hopefully] redundancies.
Then there is the needed cash to get the current seasons races underway......stakes and other expenses.
I believe the synthetic tracks were already budgeted in the NZ First Regional fund plan.
Winston appeared to be on top of this crisis...confident relaxed and fully aware that the racing industry and TAB should be able to bounce back.....I felt he inferred changes.
A dig at the 'old men ' , the internal squabbling , the Avondale situation and the old saying.....he who has the money ,plucks the duck !!
Loathe Winston or love him ,I think NZ racing can be thankful that he is where he is currently !
RITA should be working overtime at cutting excess costs out of their wages and other operating costs and looking to put some Equity into the outfit !
I hope they ruthless...sadly some clubs and tracks should be running equalisator or picnic races .
Paying out funds before they earned and/or paying out more than the TAB surplus must NEVER ever happen again.
The codes and clubs will need to do more to help themselves.
Shape up or ship out.
Those on here who have the ear of important folk or impeccable sources should use them to get the message across.
This bail out is just the beginning !

Perhaps a case of small steps WD.
After all the codes need to lift as well and get with the program

Pegasus 9 reacted to scooby3051 in RANDWICK RESULTS HERE
Well done everyone special mention to Ponderosa...god knows how you do the scoring but thanks for making everyones afternoon very enjoyable....people like you make the forum the community it is...thanks again and thanks to everyone for the support.
Pegasus 9 reacted to Mikie in Randwick comp this Saturday
I thought the scoring with just Quinellas, Trifectas, First 4’s, Quaddies and the Pick 6 was a good effort but doable
To add in the Place 6 with 4 horses in each leg is remarkable
I take my hat off to you Ponderosa, this will be an awesome effort. I doubt I could adequately keep track of my bets let alone every entrants!
Thank you for scoring, and thank you sponsors, for something to help pass the hours
As usual, if I win anything, I’ll go wide with my punt to try and get a pool for the next Competition
Based on previous results, my winning anything appears highly unlikely
Pegasus 9 reacted to Ponderosa8 in Randwick comp this Saturday
Mrs Cubes, Scooby and myself put up the $$$ a couple of weeks back for the Rosehill/Flemington comp, but then the winners Chelseacol, Mr Cubes and Seddon generously donated their winnings back for another comp…. so we’re ready to go this weekend and heading to Randwick.
1st - $150 each way
2nd - $100 each way
3rd - $50 each way
The scorer has made up new rules for this one…. and we’re going out the whole hog:
Pick 4 horses in each race, and you will have:
- $1 Boxed Quinella
- $1 Boxed Trifecta
- $1 Boxed First Four
- All horses coupled up in both the early and late Quaddies
- All horses coupled up in both the Pick 6 and Place 6 (especially for Houlahan’s Dream)
- You will NOT have $1ew on each horse, but if you pick a winner which pays $20+ then you will be credited with the win divvy.
(They’re not displayed on the TAB website yet so I’m just assuming they’ll be running a Pick 6 and Place 6.)
I have to decide the rules yet if there’s Carried Forward amounts for the First Fours and Quaddies and the Pick 6 if it’s a terminating one, but I do have something in mind and will post them later.
By having 4 horses running for you in each Place 6 race I’m expecting a few will get nice total collects from the Place 6 and rocket them up the table…. so all will not be lost if you’re not travelling too well throughout the day.
You total spend for the day will be $9,190 and I’m guessing the winner will accumulate something like $50,000.!!!
Entries Close 1.30pm.
Any late scratchings you can post a replacement otherwise you’ll have less horses running for you…. It wouldn’t be fair if you struck the Pick 6 and won the comp by default.
PLEASE post your horse numbers in numerical order…. not 9,4,13,2 (for eg)
Yes you’ll have 4 horses in each race… but you still have to pick them…

I liked the 2 horse system with WP and quinella for those five races.
Only suggestion would be have ONE of those races as a BB for double divvies.
But really, the comps are great fun. Thanks to all who make it possible.
