  1. HRNZ should make all the major Group races handicaps. It is long overdue, and maybe punters would have a chance to have a bet on a horse without an odds on favourite in the field (hard to back it, and hard to back against it). Worse still, some hot pots even get a flying start from the starter! In gallops, the best horses carry more weight, but in trotting the best horses in the biggest race start off the front, sometimes year after year. Sundees Sun is a good example in the Dominion Handicap.
  2. Hi Does anyone know where Kate Cowan has gone to? Her last ride was 11/12/21, and she no longer seems to be riding for Pat Duff in Queensland. Maybe she is injured, or maybe on holiday but I cannot find anything online.
  3. I see in the Nelson fields today the partnership Purdon/Cullen is still showing for the All Stars runners. I thought 1/1/22 the Purdon/Rasmussen duo was to resume. Does anybody know what is happening or does the race field data just need updating?
  4. Oops, wrong place!! I thought this was a horse racing site...................
  5. Use punters.com.au. You can "Black Book" horses, Trainers and/or Jockeys and it is bullet proof. You get an email each day but if you look online you can see a couple of days in advance. You can put a comment with each black booker so you can remember why you put it there. The NZ TAB system is ....
  6. Ok thanks, appreciated/
  7. Does anyone know what has happened to Luke Nolan? He just seems to have disappeared, and I cannot see that he is suspended.
  8. www.punters.com.au works a treat. Sign up, click on "Black Book", add however many horses you want, plus a message to remind you why you have it in your Black Book & they email you when horse is an acceptor. Works fine with NZ horses as well as Aust horses.
  9. ok, thanks.... will keep a look out
  10. Hi. Does anyone know what Kate Cowan is up to these days? I know she went to South Australia in the middle of last year. I was introduced to her at Blenheim a few years ago & when we shook hands she sure had a 'firm' handshake!!
  11. Great win and all credit to the owners for taking the horse over there and having a go. Bit of a lucky win in a way. I thought the driver almost blew the race by pulling back and out in the straight, rather than waiting for the passing lane. It would have won by a length otherwise.
  12. The Myers stable has been unusually quiet the last 6 weeks or so. I hope everything is ok.
  13. I cannot agree the new site is better than the old one. For example, I cannot see on the new site where I can look at.. - Quinella prices - Previous trainers of a starter - The owners names ( Useful if a Trainer owns all or a large chunk ) - The stakes won by a horse - without going away from the race listing/tote prices to the PDF section The stats on various track conditions (fast, good etc) often do not add up to the horse's total starts The only plus I can see is the win movers tab is specific to a race, rather than just the next race to go

    Best I can recall, maybe summer, as I biked over to the course, but cannot be sure One of the first two was a first starter, and from Auckland/Waikato etc ie not Central Districts.

    Hello Gubellini, Thanks so much for your reply. Probably the whole lot if you can as I am not sure of the race I would like to look up. . The short story is I was newly married, biked over to the course , got $2 worth of the quinella and got back around 6 months wages. Would love to know the horses etc and cannot remember although to be fair it was 50 years ago! I think it was a 2yo race and one of the 1st two was a first starter from up north. Many thanks
