  1. Great to see Jason Collett riding so well last couple of months. Our Jockeys are proving their worth. Daniel Stackhouse riding great as well as Michael Walker . James MacDonald not up to his usual high standards lately but I'm sure he will come right.He seems to be settling back.a lot lately,maybe trainers instructions,and running on for minor placings
  2. I like the fact that MW was quoted in the press as saying Odeum wont get beaten and then rode it a peach
  3. Haha Their propaganda lynchpin, The Punters Lounge
  4. Owners allowed at Trots at Methven last week with nearly 160 horses racing.HRNZ have come up with excellent crowd control plan.
  5. Ellerslie a heavy track and only 4 flat races,Riccarton a very hard track to.pick winners.Also always to find a horse with a decent chance at over odds in NZ
  6. Rosehill R8 Fasika Trainer using this as a stepping stone for an Everest spot and owners have already started discussions with a slot holder. Great fresh up record of 2 wins and a 2nd and has had 3 nice trials to get ready for this.Currently @ $2.60 but I believe will be $2 by start time.

  8. Thought I would have a go at a few place 6 today .Normally.only take quaddies and have had a great run lately so will spend a little bit more on place 6s as the boys seem quite keen on them.All for 10% Randwick 3-7/5-9/1-2-3/1-7/2-7/1-12 Flemington 11-12/12-13/4-7-8/4-8-11/1-10/5-9 Eagle Farm 2-14/4-6-7/1-3/1-14-17/1-16/5/7 Morphetville 1-4-7/1-2-3/2-3/2-9/7-8/3-12 Belmont 2-5-7/1-2/1-8/4-9/7-10/2-10 Happy punting team
  9. Condolences to you Cubes.I remember Mrs Cubes well from the Cup day we spent in your box at Riccarton.That is a day my wife and I will never forget.
  10. It was a worldwide response,most countries have done the same as others except we have kept it under control better.Even Todd Mueller has said he cant criticise NZs response so far
  11. I think worldwide the NZ economy will be one of the better performers during what will become a world recession. The Meat,Milk and Honey industries are already leading the way.All countries will struggle and I think most NZers know that
  12. I have a feeling the likes of Mark Mitchell,Chris Luxon and Judith Collins will swoop.I believe Muller and Kaye are only stop gap measures as the others know Labour got this election sewn up
  13. HTP and me go back 35 years,and he actually a good bugger who just rubs a few people up the wrong way
  14. I joined December 2001 and could be wrong but think it had been going for about 6 months then. If remember correctly my first post upset a few people and I learnt how precious some galloping people think they are compared to the harness fraternity I was part of. I ran my first of many comps on Queens birthday weekend 2002 with $100 prize money,wife wasn't happy I took a bit of a break from posting a couple of years ago after a bit of an argument with somebody,who was proved to be a dick in the end,but still followed and read the posts. Still NZs premier racing discussion site
  15. Shontelle Colin was my uncle so if he was your dad then you my cousin.I dont think I have heard of you but know Colin was a ladies man and very fertile. Can I private message you
  16. That was with a picky but there was no.pick 6 so I think break even was much less

  18. Couple of nice horses at good odds that went ok last week and may improve with quick back up Doomben R9 Canapes has placed both times this campaign and I think this is easier,Backed in from 9s to 4.5 on Pointsbet Morphetville R3 Shes Never Late is no world beater but went nice race last start and drops in weight with a nice draw and underrated Jockey
  19. Rosehill R4 1-2 R5 2-10 R6 1-7 R7 6-16 R8 2-6 Flemington R4 1-3 R5 3-12 R6 1-4 R7 1-2 R8 7-17 Thanks team especially the Cubes

  22. Ex Jockey and my uncle Colin Reeves passed away on Friday. Some older "cafers" may remember Colin from the 60s/70s.Colin was based around Timaru and Ashburton and rode for many good stables of the time. He was a very good apprentice and rode both flat and jumping races.Rode a few winners in some of the better winter carnivals and was top SI apprentice one year. Unfortunately Colin had a chequered career and was dogged by weight and alcohol problems,after a couple of assault charges at different racecources he was banned from all racecourses in NZ..After retiring as a Jockey he lead a colorful life with stints on the run from police and subsequently a couple of lags in the klink.He worked until 70 as couldn't afford not too and retired to Taumaranui a few years ago.Unfortunately his life was controlled by alcohol and shagging.Alcohol ruined his first marriage and since then he has left quite a few kids to a lot different woman. RIP Colin
