    New FOB and Shutdown

    I took all my cash out before change in case it was a balls up and I couldn't get it . If you've put money in do they still charge a fee for loading up account ? I cannot seem to find trainer , jockey and full horse win stats . If you are not aware of a trainer is there a button that shows their seasons records ? Location where they train etc.

    Omoto

    Love Omoto , great backdrop after post with that hill/mountain. Agree close to action. Pleased the concrete running rail posts went , scared crap out of me first time I went there in 1995 watching up close . Couple horses I remember over the years attending there , horse called Trifox. Ran in first or second one year , last race came round looked at book thought I missed a scratching as it was in race. Scribbled it out then it fronts up in parade ring and runs again. Backed horse once there called Gatorade , months later or maybe year or so later walked into smoking betting shop in UK and there it is running in first at Sedgefield . Big change from Omoto but it done ok over there over jumps at gaffs. Was punting all day there once , my ride home turned up just before last got me to do a one dollar Tri for him on names , bang 400 plus winnings . It's easy he said. Be absolute crying shame to lose Coast circuit.

    Blimey if a few people in boys get paid hold some kind of sway as a small group it really is over . A small betting group , good on them I've no interest in them myself but from few people I know I've heard they are not bad group but live or die on their opinion anymore than rank and file masses of punters who've been punting for years I hope not . Good on them though for making a living out game , punting , knowing their horses.

    Hopefully a work in progress , maybe they will pick up the feedback and iron out issues. However if the product is behind the big corps it's going to struggle long term. Things like odds boost for my level a winner. I know the pro punters say that there are restrictions with these corps but for those that punt for a hobby these little extras are great .

    Is there a button with all the win records listed . I have quick scroll through them to see what kind of mark a horse who's been round traps a few times wins off but does not seem to list wins like previous . Could be something they add on later in upgrade I suppose but shame if that form is gone .

    Had a look , logged in ok, it's painfully slow though , is that something that will speed up as I am limited on tech stuff ? Old site was click , load done like turning a page clicking through . Hoping it's just first few days or its going to be a pain.Same device I use flicks through William Hill and Ladbrokes ok.

    NBR headline

    A trial winner will sell for 150k to 300k and a maiden winner is worth 250k to 500k. Right where do I quickly buy a horse. Bullshit prices . Insert the words could/may/ might if you are lucky on a good day depending on number factors .A maiden winner at gaff track midweek in mud could be worth 10 bucks in some cases. Huge generalisation that is rampant in non trade press.

    I liked the second , looked to me had easier time than winner once chance had gone.

    waikouaiti

    That's the one 1996 . Myers always the stable on coast now. Love that Scapolo , hope it's in this year somewhere .Overtheriver should go OK, he was smashed over last week in Manawatu Cup on bend and all bar won with 60kgs, flew home , 5 kgs more than next runner. I see couple the regular North Island battlers got a few in . Though Nevis went ok today , trip track didn't suit but boxed on OK under topweight for 9 year old gelding first up. Nuggets horse maybe ?

    waikouaiti

    Hahaha Shad ,I was at the top bend that day, all set , picnic , games for kids , one race one loser , kids loved the helicopter . Never seen that on track before or since. Quite a number hung around after drinking and punting on away meetings but not the same. First time I went Kumara I was over on hols , Vivz or something like that won Nuggets , pissed down most day and track was dead set flooded as it splashed through. Kumara had bad run for few years so hope it survives For me Omoto my favorite coast track.

    waikouaiti

    It's bit bad , hopefully trainers saving horses for Coast circuit . How much would betfair pay for racefields for that meeting. 5 bucks at most. I suppose another way of looking at it is if big crowd , loads kids , lots fun for them , if maybe a few per cent have happy memories of day they head back when they are older , start to get into it and that's a few of next generation captured. Maybe a few of smaller ones think, I'd love to be jockey . Bit like a loss leader at supermarket , turnover not be all and end all at these summer meets. Never really seen boozed up idiots at these meets either, even Kumara worst I've seen is the nude drunks racing down final 200 chased by security , was quite funny to be fair .

    2019 New Year Honours....

    Be interesting year Blue for sure, those that talk the talk will need to be shown to not be talking BS. Hope it does , be awesome to see the good horses stay here.A 10k maiden worth 15k wouldn't be too bad an improve . Not many industries double cash flow in a year , then it needs maintaining , because double in a year then halve the next year ain't quite Mr Peter's plan.

    Sydney Stayers Races

    I know things are not great here but am I the only one getting bored of these Sydney stayers races . Big money but mainly same old ex Euro middle road stayers , plus old Destiny's Kiss week in week out . Exoteric having a week off . Small fields , can study for hours but guts is imho it's a flip coin most weeks as they swap places .Melbourne way ahead in the staying ranks.

    Los Alamitos and Golden Gate

    Maybe not that many winners , but he caned it there for years and years . Santa Anita has a right good shopping mall across the parking lot from the track and they kicked off boxing day .

    Los Alamitos and Golden Gate

    Looks a winner for sure , looks like plenty there . Russell Baze I think rode 250000 winners there all told. I think he knew the ins and outs of that oval.

    Very much in jest , Fury would box his ears off blindfolded , one arm tied up and other two could honestly cause him serious health issues. He's a tough bugger though in his own class and in his number one sport. Parker would do a right odd job on him too in the ring imho. Hes got himself a slice of two very good horses to be fair .Iam not buying into the Shark hype but must admit it's one of the things iam looking forward to seeing come Autumn racing , though I suppose in saying that iam buying into the hype.

    Wrong Chevy , Gallen a VIP plus and imho possibly next heavyweight champion of the world .A slugger like Fury wouldn't lay a glove on a purveyor of the sweet science such as Gallen, as for the other two pretenders Wilder and Joshua they are dodging him.

    The Auret Race

    1st Jan 2013 Pitman Stable 5 out 5 runners at Waikouaiti. Our Gene won.

    The Auret Race

    I think the Pitman stable did it on New Years day about 5 years back down south ? . I think the stable got the trifecta on that occasion .Crédit Crunch or something like that was one of the horses.

    It don't matter too much because I read that stakes will double in I think it's less than 11 months now because it was reported 5 or so weeks back by top stable they are doubling in a year. 20 k for maiden not too bad . To return double the amount in a year will be truly impressive stuff . It's going to happen no doubt at all.Get buying those horses next month.In fact when they double the maiden races here will exceed the class 5 Singapore prizemoney because they heading backwards there .

    It's a risk and whenever I've got involved I see it as money out door. You would have idea P4P , do they charge the full 3200 per month even when spelling . They are a business and if people pay its supply and demand and they need a wage . I notice some syndicate managers go up to collect prize. I always thought lucky dip owners on course that day and they could do honours because they own it would be better look. When commercial syndicates started about 30 years back in UK , Peter Harris who was a self made very very rich man kicked them off in UK. He had a big successful stable already , beautiful gallops to go up and watch in Tring , but he wanted Joe and Jane Public involved .12 people brought into a horse . They were convened by his syndicate man .He had a large owners room at stables fully stocked with refreshments . They came up with syndicate name together , horse name and designed their own colours to race in and voted on options . Harris with Robert Eddery as his assistant sorted the training , his syndicate man took backseat raceday but sorted all the background stuff , tickets , paddock entry to talk to jockey , owners room on course , he never collected no prizes after a win. It was owners first.Sometimes looks on raceday it's the syndicators day out , not work time . Incidently had a look at returns v costs few years back , I think Turkey was very high in table .

    Training fees . Now my understanding is 3200 odd a month for syndicate horse or thereabouts, x 12 . 39k a year. Now if someone can tell me do they charge for full 12 months because even old Sir Slick spelled for couple months year . 3200 for spelling , cannot be right ?. Do they build up a bit for contingency then divi it up if not used. I've seen 4 year olds sacked by these syndicates earning sweet FA on track , christ if you wanna do 100k pro rata for three or four arse end runs at empty shit tracks midweek over 3 years of fees. Good on you , hope you enjoy subsidising a lifestyle for someone else. Each to there own though. I'd say it would be very very low percentage close to returning investment , but fun if you get a good one.

    waikouaiti

    Never been Waikouaiti to races but drove down the course area once on way back from Rugby , to be honest looks a swampy old place but was midwinter. There seems to be a muddy stream like thing on inside of home straight as well but maybe mistaken as only seen it on TV. In no way knocking the Pitman stable but seriously it's rubbish for betting off course. Hopefully on course it's a lovely sunny day and race goers have a great time and stable making big effort have ton winners . But like Kumara it's one to have a pretty good feeling weather wise if you driving a decent distance or its dollars out door on gas and waste time effort when it's canned.

    waikouaiti

    25 runners from 1 stable. Not a serious meeting I'd say. Good on the stable for propping meeting up and good luck to them but about as poor a betting medium as I've ever seen. Called off if someone spits on track anyway. Only thing I will have a look is how Nevis goes, ex Lingfield Derby trial winner five years back for Ballydoyle and Ryan Moore. Out of Epsom Oaks second , Irish Oaks winner Moonstone , brother to US Army Ranger an ex Epsom Derby Fav and a couple other decent horses. Been with Team Williams a few years. I think Mr Pitman has kept club going past 10 years.
