  1. He is not allowed to the races under level 2 like everyone else??
  2. NZTR Love racing website states that " However because racing is not a ‘permitted business’ under the government’s Health Order, people within the Alert Level 3 area are not permitted to work in an Alert Level 2 area." From the website link...https://loveracing.nz/News/34751/NZTRCOVID-19Update.aspx So how can they be at Hawera tomorrow?? Another example of the industry looking after trainers, TAB and themselves while the rest of us cant go to the races. Not to mention Mr Chittick at Hastings recently? Is it about who you are??
  3. Well, what a nice discussion. I do not understand why, without being cycnical how it is that racing continues for those that make the money, i.e. trainers, officials and T.A.B., but not for those that invest the money, i.e. The owners. To be fair it pisses me off
  4. If I can produce my double vaccine cert why cant I go to the races??
  5. Yes it was because they sucked the life out of everything
  6. I think the "office" is also full of BOOMERS isnt it? Also the Boards, committees, RIU, NZTR etc and any other body that controls the industry. You only have to go to any meeting and see all the bald and grey heads.
  7. Sad to see the likes of McKee going, an absolute gentleman, but will the disappearance of the boomers bring about a change in the industry that they have sucked the life out of??
  8. My question is what bought about this behavior?? What lead up to this event? Without excusing what has transpired? Sadly we have only heard part of the story without the context, always makes me wonder.
  9. Exactly.........hahahahahahahahaha
  10. The country tracks in my humble opinion make the best race days. They are often well supported by locals with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Family friendly and the best meetings you will ever go to. My favourites include Hastings, Matamata, Rotorua and sadly Dargaville. Thames was another good one.These meetings are also well supported by the trainers also, just look at the South Island country circuit. I have no idea why you would suggest such a thing?? My question is, was it really that bad that the meeting needed to be cancelled? The horse had just been interfered with and was off ba
  11. The time has come for privatization!!!
  12. This type of share is a waste of time. Your 25% covers the trainers costs so his share of winnings are all profit. Your share of winning still gets all the deductions for trainer, jockey etc. I would advise not to touch this type of investment. He will charge excessively for all associated costs as well. My trainer just charged $300 for ulcer treatment that I can buy myself for $200. They will clip the ticket on everything. Also is watch out for Right of Purchase lease agreements.
  13. The imprisonment of his daughters and a doping scandal. See for yourself https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/mar/06/sheikh-mohammeds-disgrace-may-begin-end-of-his-horse-racing-love-affair See "Sunday" programme 7 March 2021
  14. If worried about your account why not go down to the nearest TAB and place the bet there?
