    Tips of the day

    Better than some. Everything I punted on Sunday and last thursday came out and won today and had no money on them at all

    I give up

    I think this article provides all you need to know about the muppets in charge of racing here: https://www.lincolnfarms.co.nz/stories/racing-board-ignored-deloittes-warning-about-significant-risks-with-new-betting-platform/

    My personal suggestions for the future

    I think people are deluded if they think any new tracks will open up in the interim. I see most tracks closing with one down south, one in the CD, and one up North.

    My personal suggestion, get out while you can! You forget how distressful life is once you no longer need to rely on week to week winnings from your racing team

    Cole - Court case

    For those following the outcome of this case. He went for a call over which is a trial by jury starting on the 28th Feb. They are not allowed to release the charges until this date.

    Cole - Court case

    There was an accident back in January that pushed the date out and this covid 19 business has pushed it out even further

    When is not safe safe?

    Yes. That is right. I agree it's a joke but whoever decided to make it a risk did so. The problem is from what I can see that the clubs are not getting any advice around h&s at all. I showed the old and new protocols today to my h&s officer and he laughed. Another interesting point gom is that the clubs should have a health and safety register for everyone who's working their to view. The fact they refused to outright answer your questions is a joke upon itself

    When is not safe safe?

    It doesn't matter if 99% of us think it is not a risk, someone (I dont know who) decided to identify this as a hazard under the act. Now that identified hazard does not change due to certain circumstances that have changed. Therefore, the mitigation that was implemented should not change. There should be more mitigation put in place to mitigate the new identified risk. All this action does is make them extremely liable if something did happen while people are running back as this is a known risk and their are now no measures in place to mitigate it. This situation would be no different to having a stairway identified as a risk, putting in handrails to mitigate the risk, than removing the handrails because covid-19 lasts longer on the material they are made out of. As far as I am concerned, the issue isn't whether or not we all think its a hazard, its how the club/s fail to fully grasp how this act works (shown by the new notice given)

    When is not safe safe?

    Exactly. The rule not to allow people to run back was enforced originally because it was deemed a hazard under the than new health and safety at work act. After it was deemed a hazard, it is the clubs/riu/grnz responsibility to mitigate that hazard. In this case, that new rule was brought into place. Now they have removed the mitigation of that hazard which is crazy. Furthermore, you cant leave the risk of an identified hazard to be on a person by person basis. If it's a risk for one person, it is for everyone. If someone broke a leg running back now, they could sue on these grounds. Furthermore, if there was an investigation opened into it which is common with acc claims at work these days, the results would be disastrous as the risk was identified, they mitigated it than decided to remove those mitigations

    Covid 19 restrictions

    I read on the other forum they were doing trials out of the boxes at Christchurch today. Are these retards for real? Hand slips are all that has been allowed thus far and if they cant even follow simple rules like this, the industry will be lucky if it isnt shut down within a week
  11. Rules For Some

    When is not safe safe?

    These protocols were brought in due to the health and safety at work act. You will find when a risk is identified I.e. running back from 375 to catch your dogs, you than move to minimize the risk which was in this case, not allowing anyone to run back. This risk they identified does not disappear now because there is a greater risk. The new risk has to be dealt with without effecting other risks and if the club cannot prove they have made all possible steps to minimize the previous risk, they are leaving a huge legal gap in their system and breaching the act. I've never seen any workplace I've worked in disregard one risk because another has appeared. That's absurd

    When is not safe safe?

    The point he is making is they are going against health and safety protocols put in place. Whether you find the rule absurd or not is pointless, these protocols were supposedly put in place to minimize risk and to abide the health and safety laws. The people making these decisions clearly have no clue about them themselves.

    Covid 19 restrictions

    If I am wrong, where is the directive that goes against rita original statement? Please explain? I also note that both wendy kite and Alan trash broke their bubble at trials the other day to help Brendon Cole. This is against grnz rules and level 3 rules. What's worse is right staff let it happen. Racing will not last very long

    $15K all races in July

    Wait until next season where all racing associations have left a loophole for them to alter stakes accordingly. It will only get worse

    Covid 19 restrictions

    It is true that they were doing boxed trials as I have since spoken to a witness. As such, this is shambolic from the club as the outline provided from RITA around being allowed to start trialling so soon is provided here: https://www.rita.org.nz/new-zealand-racing-prepares-resume While good progress has been made, officials are still finalising Greyhound Racing NZ's (GRNZ) approval for participants to prepare for handslip trials from Tuesday, and confirmation of these protocols is expected to be confirmed early next week. No new directive has come from anyone in authority that boxed trials were allowed so this is a serious breach of the rules from where I am sitting and a potential setback to the commencement of greyhound racing in general. If these people cannot follow simple rules like this, how will they follow the stricter raceday rules?

    Not according to the policies document GTNZ have distributed

    Trump written off

    I don't know where you are getting your Information but from what I am seeing in studies and journals thus far, this is most certainly not a 'Normal' flu. While its true the most vulnerable are the ones dying from Covid-19, there are other symptoms showing in younger people and people in their middle years that have been very worrying. Some of these include blood clotting in the bigger valves in peoples bodies and causing strokes, inflammation of internal organs etc. One of the more interesting studies done recently has shown that less than 5% of people who have recovered are showing signs of anti bodies which is also strange. Its also apparent that the damage done to the lungs is not normal. Even in patience with little to no symptoms. Its more likely you are taking one or two unqualified peoples opinions instead of what the majority of research thus far is showing. FYI, you could double the amount of people infected and the percent of people needing medical treatment in hospitals would still be far higher than normal/

    Worldwide Trend - COVID-19

    Havent used NZ Tab for years now. Not only do I normally get fairly better prices on fixed odds, I find betting agencies have better incentives in Australia to use them than the NZ TAB

    Does anyone know?

    From field numbers, I'd imagine more trainers would prefer Auckland than cambridge

    Does anyone know?

    You can rule out racing continuing under level 3 by the sounds of it. I doubt any racing will continue until late june
  22. Rules For Some

    Does anyone know?

    I think you will find travel restrictions under a level 3 model are very similar to a level 4 model with a little bit more leniency around why you are allowed to go out. However, it is entirely reasonable that some places with more cases may remain under stricter lockdown rules like Auckland and the waikato. If the traveling restrictions were still in place, someone from te kanawhata or even te awamutu cannot travel to cambridge
  23. Rules For Some

    Does anyone know?

    If the travel restrictions are the same as they are now. How many people would live within a 30km radius of cambridge?

    What The Future Looks Like

    I've heard stake will be cut hard in NZ due to former problems between grnz and nzrb ontop of the covid 19 issues. The future looks rather grim for greyhound racing in nz.

    Auckland GRC

    Itd be suicide if they closed cambridge and left Auckland the sole track in the northern region with the lease nearing its end. If they did close Auckland, whatd happen to all the circle dogs up north? I wonder if they would be allowed to do at cambridge what some places have in aus with two track circuits
