    Isnt it good to watch a good square gaiter and yesterday we were fortunate to see two very good ones at Ashvegas.Your other comments are not unreasonable but the Trackside production teams do not seem to comprehend what info the race viewers want pre and post race

    As you state, Waller often has about 75% of the starters in staying races in Sydney.
    It is obviously not a good look, one trainer having most of the starters in a race like the flying stakes, but surely the problem isn't with one trainer being too good, the problem is with the other trainers not being competitive. Some of you almost seem to be suggesting a dominant trainer needs to be handicapped somehow to give the others a chance. Perhaps the All Stars horses should all have to start 20 metres behind..
    Over the years there has often been one trainer that dominates for a period in Canterbury, for various reasons, it is just unusual that this period of dominance seems to have lasted longer than most.

    Another day......another win !
    Punters onto the lass tonight even from bad draw.
    Got into running line ,moved up to take 'bad luck' out of creation. 
    Controlled the pace for most of last lap outside leader and had enough in tank to hold on.
    Perfect !
    Meanwhile Tim called in the replacements to get his horses onto the track at Alex Park , with the correct gear and numbers ,tho the suits were watching him closely !

    My whole purpose in racing horses is to get them sold oversaes. No matter how good you think your horse is, Purdons got one better

    Go back to the old sysem, 1 win, up 1 grade, with more races for 2 and 3 year olds. Go back a class if horse has 6 unplaced starts, further back than 6th inclusive but no further than 2 win class. Quite simple to follow, 2 year olds get 1 penalty for each second win unless the stake to the winner is more than $20,000.

    Christ Tim, if Aucklanders can't get off their arses to go to the Park, who in their right mind would expect them to go to Pukekohe...???
    Too many other options on a Saturday night for the discretionary dollar. The only thing that gets people back to the track is Champions.
    And they are in short supply right now. ....

    Tim - reckon you should take over the ATC & beef win the Auckland mayoralty then all the problems in the north would magically disappear.

    I see the president is standing down this year. Perhaps he should stick around until the mess is sorted or conversely the whole Board should be removed?

    Posted July 6, 2016 As a passionate trotting fan I can't believe this is anything other than an urban land grab by property developers ( not that they are invisible ). After all where else could you find another development site in such a prime part of the city ?
    By the time we realise we have been duped , those responsible will be long gone with their golden parachute's.
