  1. Cindy & Co couldn't organize a piss up at a brewery, so it's no surprise that they won't let a party at the races, that they have nothing to do with organizing, go ahead. As far as the pie man goes, once upon a time ministers of the crown were staunch advocates for the industries they were ministers of. Show me one minister that has done that in this current dictatorship, who rule by fear and fear alone. Almost 2 years of Covid and NO COVID CASES IN THE SOUTH ISLAND FOR ALMOST 12 MONTHS....... But wait, they now have a plan, we just have to wait until Friday to hear it!!!!

    Lol. Are we even allowed to say male & female anymore But back to the topic. I heard somebody at the yearling sales say "there goes racing royalty" as M & N walked by.... Hard to argue against that!!!
  3. Oh Nelli.... poor deluded, haven't Ashley & Cindy done so well, Nelli. Yes, we've had more freedoms than most other countries, but we're now borrowing a billion dollars a week, so your arguement about the economy is void.Then while we were covid free our leaders sat on their asses & delayed the vaccine rollout, this despite them telling us "we'd be the first cab off the rank" Had they done as promised this second outbreak may never have happened. As far as Aucklanders doing it tough.... FFS, THATS WHERE COVID IS. It's not in the South Island, despite several entitled Auckland
  4. AND IN THIS CURRENT DELTA OUTBREAK, THE SOUTH ISLAND HAS HAD HOW MANY CASES??? RULING BY MISINFORMTION AND FEAR. DISGRACEFUL, ESPECIALLY GIVEN ITS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK. WELL DONE TO OUR REACTIONARY PM AND HER BOOT LICKERS!!!!
  5. Haha, agreed. Looks like capacity fields, for the most part, at Addington & Ashburton. Any idea when trials recommence?
  6. Could't disagree with you more TM. Entrapement, Really???? He knew what he'd given them and any withholding periods... How many senior trainers do you see being brought before the JCA for similar offences? EVERBODY knows the rules. Personally I think he got off lightly. Throw the book at them, it's time to start stamping this out once & for all. Otherwise the industry looks weak and it gives the animal welfare groups more ammunition!!
  7. My understanding is 17 races @ Addington on Sunday, starting at 10.50 last race 6.22, but only if Christchurch go to level 3 or less....

    good news

    Handicapping good news, At first glance, I like the hadicapping changes. Being able to win your first race and retain the same rating band makes sense to me. Hopefully a step in the right dirrection, in this instance.

    good news

    As has been said; on it's own, this increase will do nothing to stop the sale of those 2 - 5 win horse's that have reached their level here. They'll still end up in Oz where they can race every couple of weeks & earn enough to pay their way, probably more. When will the majority of us in the middle (the battlers) get a fair crack? If the TAB distribution figures above are correct, we really are the bronze medal code and this should be seen as embarrasing for the new leadership!!
  10. Favourites all day for mine, as long as the rain stays away. Although I do like You're So Fine in the 2 yo C&G... one for the little guys lol
  11. Yes, that's the way I read it
  12. Thanks for the well reasoned answers guys. Helping me see other sides to the same equation, much appreciated. One issue I still have is what hsvman said "More drivers should be making horses work and not just give the front and race virtually away". This is great & valid when horses have similar rating bands, but surely STS would have had a better chance if handing up and sitting on the back of one of the countries best pacers? My opening point was, did PF give his horse the best chance?
  13. His drive in Race 8 at Alexandra Park last night was a disgrace and when questioned by the stewards, stated he was "told to lead". Stewards noted his comments, well done you f...ing weaklings!!! Not talking through my pocket, as I very rarely bet on harness now days... This being a prime example of why!! Your feelings??
