    Dead baiting NSW

    The Dogs do not know that untill they get there duh.

    Dead baiting NSW

    The best skin we had was 5yrs ago and a Hunter said would you like a goat skin it lasted for 3yrs, and it was all about smell and how tough it was.

    Dead baiting NSW

    Just To let you all know, I do not believe in live baiting and we do not do it.I do believe we should be able to have skins at home to play with our dogs. The rule could be changed that only skins, no body or flesh. Bev

    Sad state of affairs

    Well this comes from the horse code not dogsI So I hope MR. B.S, is the 1st to go. Bev

    Sad state of affairs

    I would like you to know that the Stipes were there; trying to keep the peace, as I was abused by the Father who would not listen, and said he would bring down his gang member. Sorry Sue, but if you would like to stick up for some one, you should be sticking up for the poor girl who keeps getting shit from your mate. Bev

    Futurity heat sectionals

    thank you

    Young dogs



    I have allways thought that the % is wrong and it should be 60/40, 40 to the breeder.


    Wanganui next Wednesday has 15 races, 4 C0, and 11 C1 and 47 OZ dogs named. CH-CH on Tuesday have 12 races, C1,25 OZ.

    New Years Wish

    I would like to know how many people who pick on LP rep have been on a Committee or Board? Because if you have, you will know that you have to get at least someone that will support you. Now you pick on LP rep for not telling you what is going on, and yet he is supposedly known for being gossipy for telling too much out of school.The most democratically elected, full member of a greyhound board, is considered not to be fully capable of pertinent information until they have served years on the begginers Dates Committee. I have asked for the GRA Board Minutes for the last 9 months.The last one was back in 18th dec 2015. Now who do they work for? And Wanganui have not had one to my knowledge. Where is that damn transparency thats been promised the last twenty years? Bev Duganzich

    Group 1stakes

    Well we all agree that Group races should go up. But for importers to think it should come off the NZRS,is a bit over the top. As for PVs, Wanganui put forward a recommendation that trainers get only for the first 5 unplaced dogs. That will give trainers up to $150. Which should cover cost of most places in NZ.Just not the boat. Bev

    The Punter

  15. Well Reilly, can you tell us how much the Greyhounds get for funding our sport. I am not talking about turnover, but what % do we get from OZ betting on Greyhounds? As you are so knowledgeable regarding figures,perhaps you could inform us of the costings of providing TV coverage by all codes and sports,actual contibutions by same? Bev
  16. It is all about making money. They do not give a damm about your point of view. We had a dog in the last race and they went over with a 1min 17sec and did not talk about the race till 2 sec from start time. They talk about R/L for 43 sec.Now is that giving our dogs a fair go.They did turnover over $8k on the win pool. The OZ race was to go 1 min after dogs.This has been going on for a long time,especially talking about other sport in our dog time. Bev

    Trackside 1 or 2

    Are you happy with the coverage the Greyhounds get? I asked gra how much the Greyhounds pay for it, second rate coverage.( they pay over $2m.) Well on Monday and Tuesday the dogs are on trackside 2, but when the horse's kick-in they are on T,1. On Monday when the OZ kick-in we do not get front ons. Which most Greyhound people would rather have than looking at people walking back and putting them on the dias to get a ribbon or pic. I know its all about turnover,so how about we get a longer build up? But why do they have to talk to the jockeys in our 2 mins buildup? The horse's get 5 to 6 mins before their races, and if it's the trots, they most of the time, run late. Bev

    Trackside 1 or 2

    Can you imagine what would happen if they did this to the horses. I would like to think that the GRA would do something about it. It is like having the News on 1 and half way in to it they say we are now going to 2. Bev

    Trackside 1 or 2

    Yes it was great, and if it is a cost issue just do it for group races would be good. Now we will see what coverage the dogs get on Monday and Tuesday? I was watching the replays this morning,and while I waited for Wanganui,I watched CH-CH. Now I would like the replay to have the existing results and breeding, at the front of the races,so people know which dogs to watch. Bev
