  3. "That's Gold" Did it ever see the light of day on Trackside TV ? Bayliss "The Wolf of Jackson Street Petone" as they called him. You know he had a 33 1/3rd strike rate with all those females featured in that Vomitron - no wonder he was looking so smug - and that was before the salary and bonusii kicked in ! What a Star. Things have certainly improved with the new Drop kick - NOT
  4. For all it's foibles , it is Winter Racing in NZ and more so lets address the Elephant in the room, And that is NZ Racing and such is what you see is what you get. Is this preferable to going to Ruakaka or Te Rapa every alternate week, mixed in with Ellerslie , Waipa and Te Teko and have no issues hanging my heart on Avondale, personally agree it has more to offer than flittering all over the North Island when Avondale is right on the back door of everywhere and not impossible to access

  11. It seems the Race Fields legislation is being totally rewritten and will be lucky to go through this year. I totally agree and worry that WP will sit and dilly dally until close to the next election and then come across the Knight in Shining Armour as he attempts to get the new Act through and then there's still no guarantee. A major concern is that whoever was involved in writing the previous legislation seems to be so far removed from reality that surely they should also be held to account.
  12. Pretty sure Neil the owner explained it was pronounced A-Gin to George and Brendan one day

  15. Each to their own , can see that certain aspects rock certain peoples boats. Personally and maybe not for ever , I did like the owners names in the books cos I've got a few mates who part own a few horses , some have never and will never ever win a chook raffle, let alone a race , and some are the most jammy bastards you'd ever meet , so Yes I'd prefer the owners names in the BB. If it's not to be then sobeit , but it's just that one extra line of information for me personally...

  17. "We are confident that the fixed odds platform will create the value that we are expecting from it. We went through a very extensive exercise, by bet type, to assess the margin impacts that we expect to be delivered from this particular initiative. Say No More What sort of deluded world does this clown live in
  18. "We went through a very extensive exercise, by bet type, to assess the margin impacts that we expect to be delivered from this particular initiative.'' What the f*** did this clown just say ?? Anyone got an idea ...
  19. As Brian de Lore said "NZTR should have released this report 6 months ago " Is Brian the only one with any nous and balls around here trying to SAVE YOUR Industry or are the top dogs doing ok so need to worry and the rank and file are too afraid to scared to speak out. Come on ffs It's Andrew Brown and Chris Bayliss all over again Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
  20. Brian de Lores articles should be the front page of The Informant - And compulsory reading for all Industry participants, every one who holds a license or is employed in this wonderful Industry that is going down the gurgler quicker than George Michael in a public toilet. The new FOB will be too late coming to open a market on John Allen bailing (family issues) for sure so I've asked our local BMs and this is what they are about to release : March 2018 - $7 April 2018 - $5 May 2018 - $3 June 2018 - $1.50 July 2018 - $1.02 August 2018 - $150 Keep up the g
  21. Have a terrible feeling Whiny won't be pushing Race Fields legislation too hard until close to the next election , it is being rewritten in it's complete form , that is alarm bells in itself. He will froth and extrapolate for the next 2 years and lo and behold he will start pushing like hell leading into the next election because unfortunately how much of the idiots 3.5% is Racing Industry votes. And still no guarantee of it getting through although there is slightest glimmer of hope compared to if Guy (good riddance) or Bennett was still Minister Of Racing. Some great comments
  22. Stipes definitely wanted to get home after the last , how many did Innes clean up in the last . Protected species me thinks
  23. So many more flat out $1.00 dividends win and place . The demise of the 5c piece has been a godsend for the TAB and will probably save them from going broke ! Isn't some of the big place bets on a less than $1 dividend go towards to big punter rebates ? Plus laundering $5k or $6k on a $0.60c job gets one a clean $5k or $6k doesn't it.
  24. Didn't Ivan Mauger and Barry Briggs once race off at Alex Park late 70s or early 80s, from my dodgy memory. Also remember Alex Park would have a race or 2 televised live during the TV1 news, Remember I backed Delightful Lady when she was an awful c2 pacer , went dreadful , 12 or so months later she was running through brick walls and winning them in a row
