    tim vince got a reaction from Hunter the punter in Can the Auckland Trotting Club survive?   
    As us say bloody frustrating.the original question was will the atc survive.i think so and hope so.some of the problems were beyond the boards control.some they must take the blame.personally I would  like all the board to stand down next election put their names up again.new people wanted.i don't think any current board member should put thhemselv3s up for president.new direction and most  of the present board have had  more than one term and have failed to make a difference.the problem is where is the new blood.
    I have heard a name mentioned.couple of terms on  board and has been invisible.as u know I'm a great fan of Gary Williams.nelson giants and table tennis amongst his c.v..races a million horses.successfull  business man and huge passion.hardest part will be to convince him and a team to complement him.

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

    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.

    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.

    100 1 haha u right  of course.awt racing in most places in the world is not good for betting and generally the slower horses.i think t for training in nz good but we need  curators who look after our grass tracks better than they are at present..
