    Hunter, the good folks on another racing forum think that you are naughty for using HTP as they have one as well and are offended that you are using that same name.

    Also can you confirm that you are not me as in JJ Flash, i have no idea who you are but can you clear it up for Happy Sunrise that we have no connection as its clearly upsetting him

    Good or bad for NZ harness. Speaking through my pocket you just have to love them come Cup week and Jewels day

    Below comes from AS website



    Mark and Natalie have posted their 6th successive training premiership this season making the partnership unbeaten since going official in 2013.

    This season they have set a number of records,mainly overall stake winnings of well over $6m a feat never approached in our harness history. That includes 29 Group One wins on both sides of the Tasman.

    Their special feat this season was winning the premier race in New Zealand, the NZ Cup and the highest- staked race in Australia, the Miracle Mile with different horses. That has never been previously achieved.

    Mark has now won a total of 14 premierships. But  for a remarkable 22 seasons -all but two in his training career-he has been the leading stakes winning trainer and in only one of those less than $900,000 in total.

    Mark has extended an unparalleled record for the Purdon family. Barry has won 19 training premierships since 1978, 17 in partnership with Sir Roy who won three on his own account. So one of the three Purdons have been the leading trainer in 36 of the last 48 seasons of harness racing in New Zealand. Who would have ever have thought ?


    CRUZ BROMAC, NZ Free For All winner could return to All Stars for the Inter Dominions in December


    How the numbers stack up for our partnership

    2018-19 115 wins-$4.516m-0.4828

    2017-18-122 wins $4.463m -0.4762-

    2016-17-110 wins-$4.105m-0.4493

    2015-16-131 wins-$3.948m-0.5063

    2014-15-129 wins-$4.271m-0.4496-

    Trouble with claimers is not enough people up here are realistic on what there horse is worth. There would be plenty of rating 40-50 horses that could fit into a claiming systems but owners won’t  put realistic prices on there horses

    Owners and a few trainers to 

  4. Bring back claimers  .Any horses under 50 rating that has won a race should be racing claimers price them right everyone  has a turn .We had them in Auckland couple  of years ago but the boy's  down south didn't  agree with them so we lost another  15 or 20 horses hence the amateurs  got to race instead  of trials only 

  5. They might get to keep Auckland  at what expense puk ? How can some on the board with there past experience with money or investments be able to make these decisions noticed  bruce Carter has been quite I know he has been thrown under the bus he needs to take control  and be a leader thank good kuemu didn't join these amateurs  unlike puk 

  6. Nobody there to use them pity harness cant get 15 meetings a year therefrom November  through to February  little travel and plenty of horses trying to get away from Auckland?$6000 stakes for half points sure there's  plenty of support  for  that concept?

  7. Typically  of Auckland  they were happy to use lower grade horses  to fill the card last 2 years and now they saying thanks u we don't  need or want u here racing .Everybody  needs a share  or the pie for it to work or the system  doesn't  work most stables have those type of horses cant justifie racing further than cambridge it's to far for the guy that has a couple  of horses in work when coping those points hard to do if ur a 1 man operation with family and work not hard u need strong foundations for a business  to work if the top of the tree is the only 1 getting the fruit ur left with bitter fruit at the bottom taste bad ? It must be shared around we all need to eat . The club must support  the little guys  if there making  some return the will continue  in this great game not walk away to many young people walking away there our future  the old guys  and there loyal  owners call it quits not enough  for the younger horse  man and woman to say in the game after u lose u claim wake u auckland before  it's  to late please

    I think it should be clear Simon Lawson didn't cheat.his horse was driven to its best.he did break the rules no doubt about that..

    That's  like driving  the car in a bank robbery tim didn't  rob the bank so it's ok 

  9. Cant blame the young one's  not many make it after the concessions finish

    Got to go where the money and long term  opportunities  are can't  blame the young one's  better lifestyle  there shit might  even make enough  money to get a mortgage  cant blame him for that

  10. Some weeks and months they need those cambridge like        horses racing at the park to fill fields just need they need to program  those races for them share the pie around ? In saying that they don't want claimers or non professionals driving races at park there is probably around 20 to 30 horses that fit that bill a bit sad really for owners  and trainers trying make a crust .if they looked  after the little  guy with cambridge  like horses and most trainers  have those types north island would be a happier  place .
