    Racing Bill Submissions

    The pioneers wanted racing , they didn't want council involvement , they did it themselves . Seriously , change happens to everybody and if a few trainers have to relocate 30 minutes away sobeit . And of course this type of change won't effect owners , stable hands or jockeys , they are people who have easy choices , trainers are the only ones who may find change challenging . $2 MILLION , just do a deal with the club, get them to invest in new stables 30 minutes away and perhaps they will pay moving expenses , that type of thing .

    Racing Bill Submissions

    Do you really think a club like this could stump up the $85,000 that was up for grabs at their last meeting year after year (should be $185,000) and of course they have a premium date to operate , new years eve , holiday time . If they don't invest in racing what will they do ? quietly go down the gurgler I suppose . Face it and get real , if racing is to survive change must happen . Racing is full of old people and the number of them is declining .

    If those who established the track for the love of racing were still around I suspect they would simply demand 4 days racing a year from NZracing and would get it . In return they would invest the $2 MILLION in New Plymouth , that would see the club thrive and provide racing with great facility's , that would be a win for most . AA Travel , track to track 31 minutes .

    Excellent , so the track was established for racing with the help farmers and business men (not the council) way back in time , they wanted racing and that must be the focus of the club . $2 MILLION IN ASSETS (nice) , invested wisely in RACING the club will prosper , that's what the people who established the track would have done , it was their investment , racing is what they wanted . Do you really think the people who established the track would want it handed over to the council , what do you think they will do with it , that's right quietly cash it in , racing must be the first priority of the club .

    Tell me , how much do you think it costs a club to maintain a track like Stratford , day to day costs without upgrading facility's ?, I'll have a wild guess , $100.000 plus , if that's anywhere near the cost they won't last long .

    What rubbish , the asset is owned by the club not the local community and no doubt when Stratford closes and the horses move down the road veterinarian Mr Blue will have to travel a little further apply his trade . One things for sure without NZracing paying all stake money the club would quickly fold .

    Jacinda Ardern

    She's getting desperate , this was disproved long ago . " Public health officials are denying Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's claim human waste breached the walls of south Auckland's Middlemore Hospital. But the prime minister is refusing to back down, with her office on Wednesday issuing a statement saying the comment is in line with remarks by Counties Manukau District Health Board's former acting chief executive. Middlemore Hospital denies Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's 'sewage down walls' claim CMDHB, which in 2019 said such claims were untrue, has now responded to the prime minister's statement. Despite the dramatic language used previously around sewage issues at Middlemore Hospital, the sewage leaks were small," a spokeswoman said. She confirmed one incident in the Scott Building in November 2017, but said it was the result of a cracked sewer pipe joiner. Pipe joinery also required replacement in one of Middlemore's retail areas in October 2017. " NOW this whole beat up was used before the last election and was disproved then , comrade cindy is just rehashing complete crap , she doesn't know what she is doing .

    Hang on , that's the same sort of assumption that Blue has made . "The Stratford Racing Club was started by a small group of local farmers and businessmen who acted as guarantors for a loan from the Bank of Australasia which was used to purchase a property to be developed as a racecourse on the edge of the town in the 1880s." SO the club in this case paid for the track with the help of people who loved racing . There are plenty of examples around the country where land was donated by businessmen and farmers who wanted to see racing thrive , travel in those days was challenging . My question is , why is the assumption being made that these long gone people would rather see tracks handed over to people in the community that have no interest in racing and certainly won't help develop it . I would argue that these track donor's / financial backers / farmers would turn in there graves if their work and generosity was handed over to councils rather than investing in racing for the good of the sport they loved . In short hand it over for the good of racing , that's what those who established racing would want .

    Blue made no mention of horses in training at Stratford and I don't believe any single trainer has 50 in work . When Stratford is sold any horses trained there will just move elsewhere so the reality is that has no bearing on the contribution made . How will the Stratford RC survive if it keeps Stratford and races else where , maintaining Stratford alone will be a big expense . Compensation , zero but no doubt facility's will be made available else where . People have change forced on them every day , that's life , no different to a manufacturer moving or closing down and staff having to change what they are doing . One things for sure racing is doomed without restructuring , burying your head in the sand won't make the problem go away . As for me I'm to old to worry (like many others) about the future of racing , whatever is done will take time and that's running out for me and racing .

    Racing Bill Submissions

    A vocal critic of proposed racing industry reforms remained upbeat after submitting to Parliament on proposals in the Racing Industry Bill. Stratford Racing Club (SRC) committee member Murray Blue presented a submission to the Infrastructure and Transport Select Committee on behalf of the racing club and Stratford community. The Government should be "ashamed of itself " to propose the Bill, he told the committee. He said the government should be mandating for fair and equitable treatment for all participants in the industry, instead of "legalising the confiscation and theft of community assets", and ensure clubs are treated fairly by return of earnings. Blue said four of the Bill's proposals should be scrapped including the confiscation of club property, and club constitutions being transferred to New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing (NZTR). Club properties were community assets paid for by the community, not assets to be owned to the racing industry, he said. (NZTR PAYS ALL STAKES ) he forgets this . The club was one of the top commercially performing race courses for the TAB in off-course and fixed odds turnovers, he said. (DOUBTFUL give them a meeting in the middle of winter) The SRC lost its racing licence to hold the Christmas annual meeting which was transferred to New Plymouth. On course turnover at the December 29 meeting in New Plymouth fell from $124,000 to $101,000, while total turnover was down 28.4 per cent from $1.31m to $940,000. OK , TURNOVER DOWN but I suspect when upkeep is taken into account the club will be better off . Now let's face it Stratford has had a premium date , if they were to stay give them a meeting in the middle of winter and see what happens . The world has changed and it's not just racing . " Sweeping changes and nominal entrance fees may not be enough to keep Masterton's 139-year-old A&P Show from coming to an end. A disappointing turnout to this year's event at Solway Showgrounds on Saturday have organisers questioning the feasibility of running the annual show."

    awapuni synthetic track

    The latest . I doubt this will be resolved before the next election , these things take time . " The residential zoning of Palmerston North's next suburb to the west on Pioneer Highway has been approved, but with two major conditions that could delay a start on building houses at Kikiwhenua. Resource management commissioners said the city council had to include properties to the west of Te Wanaka Rd in the residential zone before development could go ahead. Race, the owner, wants to sell the land for housing to help pay for an all-weather track at Awapuni. The commissioners agreed the land was suitable for urban development, but said properties on the western side of Te Wanaka Rd in the remainder of the race training zone should have been included. They said the western property owners would be left in a zone with restrictive rules that would make it practically impossible for them to carry out race training activities or anything else. "We found the evidence from the western owners, overall, compelling and credible." Spokesman for the western landowners Neil Wright said he was "quite elated" with the conditions attached to the decision. "They have identified that Te Wanaka Rd is not the boundary for the race training zone, but the heart of it." He said Race should have acted as the custodian for the whole zone in its request to the council for rezoning, not just for the part it wanted to sell. Race chief executive Al Robertson said he would not comment on the decision until the group had taken advice on the implications and next steps."

    The UN is funding programs that encourage people in third-world countries to leave their homelands and migrate to the United States and European nations, according to Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjárt. This mass migration process poses “a very serious threat to the whole of humanity,” said Szijjártó. “We call on the UN to include in its budget counter-terrorism … and to spend less on migration,” the minister told the conference, which was organized by the UN. Passed in 2018, the UN Compact on Migration is not legally binding, but governments are under international pressure to follow its mandates. British MEP Janice Atkinson warned that the pact could lead to Europe being flooded with 59 million new migrants within the next 6 years. Dutch MEP Marcel de Graaff also said that the pact would grease the skids for laws that would criminalize criticism of mass immigration as hate speech. While Britain and numerous other western countries signed the migration pact, the United States refused to do so. SO there you have it , the future if comrade cindy and the UN get there way .,. In NZ we are about to have a flow of new refugees from Somalia , Levin , Masterton , Blenhiem Timaru and Wanganui are the destination for these people , comrade cindy and the UN will be pleased . OOps theres a problem , A refugee resettlement meeting in Whanganui was cut short by Whanganui Tupoho iwi representative Ken Mair on Monday night. The hui, organised by Immigration New Zealand (INZ), was intended as an information and planning event to assist international refugees to settle in Whanganui. THE RESULT . Whanganui's intake of refugees on hold: Immigration NZ, iwi in talks . perhaps the other areas should also be in talks . NOW LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT , REFUGEES ARE NOT THE PROBLEM , once a government allows them in then that's it , we must accept it , The problem IS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE DECISIONS they make , comrade cindy and her communist/socialist ideology is doing harm to our less well off in a big way , Housing for starters .

    The beginning of the end

    Interesting result , 3/4/2019 "" Shane Jones is defending claims that comments he made about a court case against a Northland trucking company amounted to a conflict of interest. Mr Jones, the Associate Transport Minister, is related to former Whangārei mayor Stan Semenoff of Semenoff Logging. In an affidavit presented to the District Court the general manager of SSL, Daron Turner, accepted the company owed $135,365.14 and what was at issue was the basis of assessment. "" In the House, he played down his relationship with Mr Semenoff, who gave him a $2000 donation and who has previously been reported to be his "mother's cousin". . Mr Jones also confirmed he had briefly spoken to the chief executive of the Transport Agency about the case, but said he was not involved in any agency decision. THE COURT DECISION . 11/02/2020 A Northland trucking firm owes more than $530,000 in unpaid road user charges and an appeal by the company to the High Court has failed to have the decision overturned. In a High Court judgement released last month it revealed an investigation by the NZ Transport Agency identified Whangārei-based Stan Semenoff Logging Ltd (SSL) had been issued an assessment for unpaid road user charges by the Agency for $532,878.96 over a 10-month period.

    So what , Key was a wealthy man before he entered parliament , he never received payment for his stint in parliament , he donated his salary , this sale just proves he knows what he is doing . Comrade cindy bought her first house when she was appointed pm , she actually has no idea how to make money for herself or improve the lives of others . What is important and should concern you is under comrade cindy the less well off were MUCH WORSE off today than they were under Key and that's an undeniable fact . Comrade cindy has failed those who she pretended to care about . Reducing child poverty , providing housing , failure after failure .

    Normal family , yea rite , a baby produced and occasionally used for political gain , a baby with a nanny , a father who likes his tv performances , a mother who has tripled her income and has overseen the demise of the wellbeing many family's . Watch out for the wedding just before the next election , I suspect comrade cindys election chances will require a stunt like that , the polls are looking perfectly logical at the moment . Jack please , pay attention to how this government is performing , not one single policy success , God help us if we have another GFC or a Christchurch earthquake .
