  2. You'd be feeling pretty sick if you are holding on to a signifcant betting voucher or 2. The day before lockdown and the TAB declares bankruptcy.... vouchers confetti
  3. Sorry mate , that is straight out theft. If it was in a tray at a terminal in the Casino , chances are 100/1 on , that punter was still in the vicinity. You must have scurried out of there like the proverbial....RAT It has happened to me on a couple of ocassions after a few bevvies in a busy establishment and Punters code of ethics ,you raise your hand and bellow , someone forget something ?? That goes both ways . I can not wait for that to happen to you , imagine the outcry !!! Karma baby , karma ... Anyway I hope there is a Mario out there somewhere reading
  4. Don't panic ,as we speak ,NZTAB headhunting Craig Coleman , will fit the bill perfectly here in NZ
  5. Sadly, Sunday looks like Des's last show
  6. Dean McKenzie ? Your silence is deafening ....
  7. Isn't that 33% drop in foals in 16 years ?? Mind blowing
  8. One major problem here is that when Bernard took the job on , he realized he was heading into a real sh*tstorm. However upon realizing stakeholders were all arguing amongst themselves and pissing into the wind and he actually didn't have to do anything of significance , you couldn't wipe the smile off his face !!! He knows how to play the game and he's playing it for all it's worth. Why would he go to SA for a conference ?? Berri is right , where is the transcripts , lessons learned ?? Every time we took a field trip at school we had to write a 1000 page essay about EVERYTH
  9. Can't wait for his 10 paragraph excuse , this is gonna be good blah blah blah Race was on during my tea break etc etc Sorry stole your thunder ct
  10. And to back up your claims , have just replayed the Lowland and Shock ! Horror ! T Lee has recalled the race. Listen carefully , he says "Nothing Compares" and "Sovereign Express" not Nothing Compearsh" Sovereign Expressh" You are onto something here Thomo. You seem adamant T Lee was drinking on the job , photo or proof would be nice or do you really know something we don' must !
  11. Look , let's get it through our thick skulls, there will be NO Legislation going through this year. It is Election year, the bills that go through now before the Election are way more important than Racing's woes. Have a read of some of the readings that are destined to go through before the Election and they certainly put Racing on the Back burner. Sorry to rain on your parade but it is Election Year and it's every man and dog for himself, (politicians) Great , our great white hope is W Peters, the most under fire maligned Minister in Parliament. NOTHING will happen ,
  12. Someone like John Wheeler. No I rephrase that , get JOHN WHEELER into Parliament now as the Racing Minister
  13. Where is Kerry Packer when you need him ?? Imagine being taking over by a rival company , who want's to sign up ? A Chinese Corp to take over , I'm sure the Breeders would be the 1st to sign up. As for a strike, nearly everyone did on Noms day for Avondale last week . That didn't make a ripple did it. As for this Sat , Derby Day ! Imagine Trainers refusing to nom on a day like that , Oh to see Paunchy Saundry's face ! Definitely still run the Derby at a later stage but imagine the chaos. I really wouldn't want to see this but ...... ARC would soon throw their
  14. Laurel Streak the 1st dog I fell in love with. Saw him in action at Mt Smart many moons ago , superb dog !!
  15. Lets face it , no Clubs are going to close their doors. The history is still too strong and emotions raw, and there's nothing wrong with that at the end of the day. What say we take on board a bit of Australian nous. City and Country Racing. Maybe we can bump up the Stakes for City meetings and for the Country Clubs , if you aren't going to sell your tracks and assets , then be prepared for a lower tier of Racing Stakes. Then we can see who survives and who fails but at least you have given yourselves a chance to survive. The smaller Clubs (Country) don't need to
  16. Racing hung their hat on peters. It is about to blow sky high , peters will be trespassed from Parliament and Racing will be even further in the mire.
  17. That's right , remember his formline used to something like FFPPPRFFPPPRPP. Didn't he win a race and that night there was a fatal car accident..
  18. RIP Ian, Thoughts and condolences with Jan Walker, she's been at his side for all those years he's been incapacitated, the Lady deserves a Medal !! Tough ol bugger Ian was, sad to see him struggle for so long but up there now with his recently passed favourite room mate for years Gus Lindstrom.
  19. I see a Ron Pryor recently passed away. Was he involved in the Saddlery business and/or owned quite a few race horses back in the day ? Name rings a racing bell, anyone enlighten me .... Cheers
  20. Just remembering it's Election year and every man woman and dog on the best gravy train going is out for themselves , NOT the public of NZ . They have all the spin in the world to blind us but we don't count. It's Me Me Me from here on in. Reading B De Lores column last week it's all started with Peters in that interview, the political speak , the gobbledegook. Surprised Brian didn't take him to task but hey I suppose he's finally got an interview and is looking for more. Don't worry, the promises will be coming thick and fast, but mean nothing if you can't get anything thr
  21. Yes it is 7 in a row, when is the last time we've seen this !
  22. Can't imagine Ruakaka will be letting their meetings go so quietly. Knowing Nztr they will still programme regular racing up north.
