    Can the Auckland Trotting Club survive?

    2 percent return on the 2 properties 4 sale.500k.if u have to sell u have to sell.we have all had to sell something in our lives.a house to buy a better house a car to buy another car or simply have to pay bank.not unusual.every big co mpany does it all the time.u have to do what you have to do.n9good litigating the past.do that later.get the development finished keep the bank happy. If you have skininthe game we have no choice. A lot of people with no skin in the game have all the answers.in dark times we have to support the board and these are dark times.ive seen people at the meetings who never come to the trots don't own a horse yet seem to want to blow up and play the blame game.do that later.lets get this development finished get the cash in and see where we stand

    It's finally

    Time to abandon the handicapping system.it could have been great but it is so far away from its original intention it should go.the inconsistencies are beyond a joke and the average horse quickly becomes uncompetitive .it was supposed to promote like with like. No.it was supposed to help retain horses no.it seems to help the good horses while many turn up to get smashed.get rid of it.

    It's finally

    As far as having a bit of land .not in the north anymore.ww need stables that can be leased.any bit of dirt in kumeu pukekohe is very expensive.

    It's finally

    1500 not in the north monthly bills usually 2k up up up.spreading the pie is very important.auckland stakes are going to continue and 400 odd starting fee is a big incentive.good meeting tonight .

    I believe in a rating system.nos shouldn't make a difference but from day 1 we didn't have a rating system we had some I'll thought out points system.vast difference.

    Real problem is thha5 they are forever tampering with the conditions.which proves of course at the start wrong people .6 months later still wrong people.fast forward to noe.stll wrong people.back to the future kids.

    It is a crime sound horses with ability get retired for no other reason they are uncompetitive for a long period of time that it makes them uneconomical to race on.then u c 4 horse races for 25k 2 suit some trainers.all every owner ,trainer wants is to line their horse thinking if all goes good I've got a chance.instead I'm taking some horses knowing they have nil hope.

    Partly but the idea of getting same points for winning a 6 k race and a 20 k races is just plain wrong.
  15. tim vince

    It's finally

    Plenty of trotters.when u have a 15 point rating spread in one race and all off front then the same sort of rating span on the same night and they race off handicaps it seems wrong.that has nothing to do with numbers.howevdr the s island is better.

    My radical plan to fix NZ racing

    Totally agree. I would add if you wear a suit u are barred from all racing activities.it has gone down hill since the suits took over.u must wear a Fred dagg uniform to hold any position above ticket collector.gumboots compulsory.
