  1. Ok..can someone enlighten me as to how come apprentice Sam O'Malley copped a $750 fine and a 12 day holiday after a ride in race 7 at Otaki yesterday...changing ground at 1200 and hampering a horse who still went on to win......compared to Danielle Johnsons ride in race 2 at Ellerslie last week where she almost did a Hugh Bowman and got away with a warning.
  2. So Danielle Johnson forces her way through by pushing Mr Fox out of the way and costing him any chance and goes on to win. George and whoever in the commentary almost treating it as a joke !! Calls it competitive because she's the leading jockey! The word i would use is interference! ...and NO I didn't have a bet in the race so not sour grapes over a losing bet!
  3. Watched the race and saw the idiot on the track but did anyone else spot the stray golf ball almost hit the horses and riders on the first round. About 2min13sec into the race...could have been a bloody disaster.
  4. No shortage of nominations!
  5. Absolutly tragic news. Thoughts and deepest sympathy to family, friends, and co-workers at this sad time. RIP.
  6. Thanks for that Rdytdy. We have that Annual at home and over the years that article has been read to our chidren and grandchildren many times. Shifnal Chief died suddenly one night of an apparent heart attack without suffering at the grand old age of 30 and is buried here on the farm
  7. Anyone know where/who to go to or if its even possible to get footage put together of all the wins of a horse that raced in the 70's and 80s?.

  9. by jingos they going well at the moment!!!!!! 2 good runs today!!!
  10. Article states that sprayer wasn't working so was applied with sponge!!! So does this mean that not even the correct application procedure used!!!!
  11. Breach of privacy .....agreed!!! Should have been shredded.....agreed! But seriously...who goes through rubbish bins unfolding paper to have a read. Must have been a different sort of person who found!
  12. Article published 12/4 says Capella able to return to stables while other 2 had remained at vet clinic, Waikato Times 16/4 says Danica Guy rushed back to Sydney to be with her filly who has not improved as quickly as the 2 other fillies and appears burnt all over. Thoughts with all connections of the 3 horses concerned and hoping horses now improving. Shocking !!!!!!
  13. Pleased to see that horses have finally had races taken off them and prize money will be going to those promoted. I guess any farm manager can make a mistake with administering cobalt to troughs........just a coincidence I guess that it happenned on the days or days before horses won. Just wondering tho.....as the three horses under investigation were found with high cobalt levels on different dates does this mean that every horse at the stable had access to this highly dosed water over a period of 2 months or was it just an unfortunate coincidence that the water was overdosed only
  14. First of all congratulations to Phillip Devcich, El Soldado and Daryl Bradley on the fantastic win of the Auckland Cup. Great to see a small guy win one of our major races. Now the moan............I thought the whole point of having 2 racing channels was so that we could hear post race interviews etc...immediately post race without having to immediately cross to coverage of an Aus race!! What we actually got told was... use your my sky decoder and watch at 8.30pm. ............Surely if we want to increase peoples interest in Premier NZ meetings the TV coverag
