  1. Rules For Some

    An admission

    Im off the opinion most of them left before they were removed after the cole shambles is over.
  2. Rules For Some

    How

    The north lacks alot of depth, especially as one big trainer is gone, Clark has cut down his numbers, and walsh doesnt have the same numbers she once did either. Craiks are the only trainers still racing a large group of dogs and the other trainers listed have come into fill the gap. Id say the best northern trainers personally would be walsh, craiks, ferguson, udy/cottam and 5th probably goes to steeles. Especially as without udy/cottam, steeles and walsh, middle distance racing would be dead in the north. As for 50/50 dogs needing to make 25k, thats pretty far fetched odds when you break down what everything is worth per day per dog. If you are wanting to make a substantial profit out of your owners, than id hope you arent getting that much of the prize money.

    How

    Sure not every dog will hit that target, but most should these days. Especially middle distance dogs. You can make 20-25k a season with an avg c1/2 520m dog these days. It isnt hard

    How

    Because the trainers are also making money out of the results of the dogs whereas doggy day cares solely rely on that income. Any trainer who argues owners must pay are obviously not very good trainers. I survived 25 yrs on 50/50 deals and did not expect my owners to cover any of the costs. Caring for a greyhound should only cost about 16 dollars a day. I stated previously that for a person to make a profit on a 50/50 deal, the dog would have to make 12k a year. Devide that by 2 for 6k a year. Devide 6k by 52 and you get roughly $115 a week and than you devide that by 7 and you get about $16 a day. Its far easier to make this kind of money than it was 10 yrs ago I for one would never send you a dog if you act like that with all of your owners!

    How

    Depends on the trainer. I always worked in 50/50 deals myself. The dog has to make 10-12k per year to cover all costs. So maths should dictate about a $230 fee. Obviously your dog wont need to make that if the owner is paying bills aswell Imports can vary alot aswell depending on the seller. Ive seen a few group one winners come over for descent prices of 10-25k. Others not so much. A descent starting point is 8 or 9 k and 10-12k landed (with new fees). 8 or 9 k will buy you a top grade sprinter or a descent c4/5 dog. Although like i said, it totally depends on the seller. Plus, i wouldnt trust the majority of syndicators in NZ. Ive seen several owners say they spent more money on dogs than i know was spent on that dog for a fact so make sure you arent getting ripped off in that department

    The CD has always been weaker. Outside of his top 5 or 6 dogs, he really has nothing special going around.

    Jumping ship

    First the welfare officer (who did nothing in her tenure), than gavin whiterod, now the second ceo in under a year (and played a role in where we are at now at board level) leaving. Geez way to go. They put the industry in a bad position with the lack of action in regards to the live baiting scandal than jump ship when its coming to a head. Absolutley disgraceful imo. https://www.grnz.co.nz/News.aspx?NewsID=3164

    Even when warned off, he gets special treatment. What a fucken joke. They have shown time and time again that they are out of their depth. If things dont change, the industry in NZ will be gone

    It would be very easy to have Lisa and Brendan's name taken of the property ownership and put it under one of their children's name

    The rules were changed this year it seems because of that case. 76.1 No Licenced Person may train, or keep (unless retired as a pet) any Greyhounds at any property or premises of a person who has been Disqualified, Warned Off, Suspended or declared to be a Defaulter, during that person’s period of disqualification, warning off, suspension or default. 76.2 No person who has been Disqualified, Warned Off, Suspended, or declared to be a Defaulter, shall be permitted during the period of disqualification, warning off, suspension or default, to transfer ownership or any training responsibilities for any Greyhound, to any other person without the written consent of the Board.

    They try and say that. But warning off's are only applicable at the tracks, not the properties where dogs are trained. Rules are very clear

    How was this dog not stood down today? Never realized cramping meant a dog turns its head and mares the other dog

    The good ones made him look like he was a struggling to run out the distance a bit last night. Although not getting on the bunny would have made it hard for the dog. Tornado tears ran blitzing sectionals and the time shows that, 41.35 is out of this world at wenty. You have a great distance dog if it breaks 42.00
