  1. So Te Akau's trainer fires in a protest on behalf of LBR connections. TA boss DE,informs stewards TA did not wish to proceed. Stipes assume the role of informant. Just a perfect result.
  2. I think Blueblood ran 1.07.7 for 1200m at Trentham ..years ago...no one outside of NZ believed it.
  3. Don't follow the NZ scene closely but guessed it would be JO....sycophant to the 'stars' IMO.
  4. I see you have been brought up to speed. Who exactly were the officials who...instigated the inquiry and arrived at the decision to relegate...names please.
  5. As you know those ratings were BEFORE the 2races you mention.
  6. dear me a dead heat with a bulldog and a...poodle. The Hotham hdcp is the famous one.
  7. So apart from the number of wins you agree with the rating of TAS @118 as against MB @116...Yes
  8. I do recall a race sometime ago where a hot fav at Ellerslie ridden by O.P veered right to the outside the entire straight,hung on by a long head and retained the race. And there's Liegero's Auckland Cup to refer to ..as well.
  9. Protest upheld reminds me why betting on NZ races is ...laughable. The new winner had every chance to run the leader down and was not good enough.Tangerine dreams ...indeed.
  10. up with the play... Labour 41% National 38% Greens 8% NZ First 8% ACT 2% Maori Party 1% TOP 1% Other 1% The poll was conducted between 7 and 11 November by YouGov so events over the past two weeks are not reflected in these results, of particular note the revelations last week about a secretive foundation that handles party donations.
  11. Hilarious...we won't mention Sabin....or the 'turned toe mutant'....that's just for starters.
  12. yes...put your cue in the..rack!
  13. Keep relying on wishful thinking and you'll get what you've always got. WP has done nothing ILLEGAL. We still await the Serious Fraud Offices investigation into alleged National practice. Plenty more dirt to come in election year ...with the Natz..its a given.
  14. Who in National would do a good job ,do you think?,given they had 9 years of neglect of nearly every portfolio in Govt. As a party whose raison d'etre has always been to maintain the STATUS QUO,will a 'fucking useless' National Minister make a discernable ...difference! Maureen Pugh could be the...answer.
  15. Thread topic='Is he a worthy minister for racing'! Real agenda =I'm a blue washed fanbois.
  16. You respond like a...politician...here's something to ponder...Chris Trotter... 'Throughout New Zealand’s brief history, conservative parties and crony capitalism have marched together in lock-step. In such a tiny society how could they not? Only the state has ever had access to the huge capital resources required to facilitate economic development. For capitalists, large and small, that meant securing their desired economic outcomes by cultivating mutually beneficial political relationships. Naturally, the individuals, businesses, and political parties involved in this activity were not at all keen to have their behaviour trumpeted from the roof-tops. If deals needed to be done, it was overwhelmingly in the interests of all parties that they be done in secret.'
  17. Not the point ,you are trying to bring an obligation of moral virtue into the topic,something politicians dispensed with...long ago. BTW who is this person...'pulling the strings' and what do you think of him/her?
  18. Did it occur to you that WP may be following the instructions of a major donor? Maybe the blame should be redirected to where it...belongs!
  19. What a bastard WP is ,bankrupting the industry on his own.
  20. So you believe WP was personally responsible for this waste...?
