    Canterbury Trial Videos

    Note that 15 January videos are now posted but not 9 January. I dont accept the excuse that resources are an excuse for not posting the major trials as they and race dates are pre notified well in advance.? Responsible or proactive managers knowing this can happen would plan for this and outsource to cover the bottleneck. Failing that let the Code manage this process and give them a subsidy to do so.? More exposure would generate more turnover.? Can the TAB / HRNZ give us an assurance that in future major trials at least can be posted earlier.?

    Canterbury Trial Videos

    Could I have an explanation please from whoever is responsible as to why videos of the major South Island trials on 9 and 15 January are not available on HRNZs web site some 13 and 7 days later. To whom should one specifically complain. This has been the case for well over 12 months now. I feel the Code is not being well served in this regard. Chertsey T.C. Tue 22 Jan Forbury Park T.C.

    SWEENEYS PRE RACE COMMENTS(BURBLE)

    Thank you. Well put. Its more a case of CREDIBILITY in us acccepting what they (not only him) say. Agree on the great ride.
  4. Was it his intimate knowledge and experience that caused him to dismiss DUPLICITYS chances at Awapuni today or his uncontrollable jaw. His reason was on the grounds that the horse would best be suited to a stronger rider and apologised to Daniel in his pre race comment for saying so.. I believe its more a case of him not only getting egg on his face but the shell too. DUPLICITY WON.

    The Budget

    Rangi she was very fit, well and crusing according to John Dunn before and after the gallop..

    The Budget

    Your right. Costing me thousands in fixed odds multis. Had 11k going in multis for Jaw D Nancy to place on Friday only to see her gallop having shied at track markers lying on the track. down the back straight. I subscribe to dreams.?

    The Budget

    Guys it is not a case of us and them. The review covers "racing". I accept the Budget said gallops. Blue "racing" has already lived on hope for years not just harness. Now we are seeing ACTION and still whinge about past grievances, Ministers etc. Move on. Await the outcome of the review and reserve any criticism or negativity (if justified) until it is released.

    The Budget

    Lamour Not conversant enough with that to comment about the race fields legisation. I personally have advocated we contract racing to Tabcorp and TV to Sky. Both are public companies ACCOUNTABLE to shareholders. Also rip up the Racing Act and start with a blank piece of paper. I hope Mr Messiah has been reading my mail and concurs..

    The Budget

    Winston has implemented a long overdue review of our Industry which potentially could make millions available to us for distribution without having to get petty cash allocations from the budget. Surely we should wait for the future outcomes before bleating and being critical of Winston.

    John Allen's latest "conversations"....

    Go back and read a recent article in the Informant which set out John Messiahs view of NZ racing and the direction we should take. The headline read 'start with a blank piece of paper" and create a Racing Act relative to these times and technology. Codes wise he favoured separate administrations controlling their own destiny and not a collective. It was a very thought provoking and constructive interview from an administrator with a proven track record. Read it.

    Hey Hey Hey!

    Congrats on the Spurs win. Commiserations to Enheim. Sadly for Hattie having to change ground to take the rails run in the straight was enough to put her off stride. She was cruising. Next time perhaps.?.
