    Thepaw got a reaction from Rusty in Cannabis testing   
    Nukkledragga if you are that confident that drugs are not a problem then come ride one of my horses (they are all quite) when you have been under the influence of some of your gear  (but before you get on sign off that you're all good to go) so when one of them burries you in the dirty or your fall off on your own accord then you don't come back and blame me for the consequences of your own poor decision making.
    The issue here is freedom of choice; Good luck to you if you want to partake in mind altering substances again that's your choice  BUT DO NOT come crying when you get hurt at work  and (in Racing terms) then blame the trainer and seek compensation BECAUSE YOU, YOURSELF made a back decision in your own time. If you hadn't figured it out horses can be unpredictable animals and the consequences of someone  making a poor personal should not reflected on anyone but those that actually caused the  problem, ooooeee that would be the person fried. 
    So for you  NUKKLEDRAGGA (assuming you can't ride): how would you feel driving in a race when everone else is pissed to bits expect you of course when they are driving cars and oh you by chance are on  a pushbike HOW BRAVE ARE YOU. Having lost a horse when a rider was under the influence of cannabis I can tell you for free its not that easy driving home with an empty float.
     
    Let me know your perferrence if you are game I can organize both horse or vehicle race - YOUR CHOICE

    Thepaw got a reaction from Aaron Bidlake in Te Rapa Track   
    Well if its any consolation the atmosphere at New Plymouth was BLOODY FANTASTIC, (despite the heavy track)
     I was in the punting competition; a no hold bar's affair where you could; bet anywhere you liked, as often as you liked , and as much as you liked, so long as you turned over $500 by 5.55pm
    The event was supported by a fantastic bar and food package ($60 per head ) and friendly polite staff.  There is a whole lot of Clubs around that could take a leaf out the book Carey HOBBS and his committee are using.  You had a feeling that your patronaged was valued. I've been to numerous other events only be confronted  with an entertainment package that is double the price or higher in some case,  and full of hidden clauses such as  " Oh sorry that not included in the package or you'll have to pay a surcharge for that premium beverage" premium my arse the difference in price at the supermarket of about 80cets a bottle yet they'll ask you for $2 (Bulls**t)
     Not very often you start planning a year out for winter racing but my teams back in Hobbsy you're a bloody legend  
    PS Nah we didn't win it

    In fairness to Plod, unless you were a FB follower of the offender you wouldn’t have know he was live streaming his slaughter.....until the footage spread due to friends of friends sharing their morbid interest.
    The heroes are the two cops who so quickly located the offender ( while he was traveling to another mosque ), rammed his car, then fearlessly dragged him from the vehicle, coshed him with the butt of a gun ( loved that bit, just like the movies ) and cuffed him / detained him. Those two saved a lot of lives without fear for their own. They’re heroes.

    It astound me that we have paid some bloody idiots to develop this new website and yet they seemed to have miss the 101 stuff  
    Those that constructed this user friendly website must have deemed it was unnecessary to include this as part of the infrastructure  
    Anyone taking bets on accountability  for this shambles;  John ALLEN maybe Glenda its a f'n disaster and is making NZ Racing look like a knock shop in a side alley (sorry hash on the ladies in the alley)

    Thepaw reacted to scooby3051 in SPRING STAKES COMP AND FANTASTIC FIJI COMPS TO STAY HERE   
    After much discussion with many members on the forum I have decided to leave the Comps here until they finish, there have been many for both sides contact me but I think they add something as far as traffic to the site goes so after first moving them on second thoughts they will stay here. Sorry I know some will be unhappy but i think it is the best outcome for the sponsors and the participants as well.
    Thanks for the feedback we try to accommodate everyones views here...but its not always easy.
