    M purdon is a champion trainer.the equipment they showed he is using is amazing.an innovator.must be very expensive.all those who think he has an un natural advantage I hope u saw it. Treadmill that gai warehouse uses and resistance sulkies from Finland.most couldn't afford it or have the horses to justify it but it is all above board.and of course great staff great young horses and above all a world class trainer. Amazing.

    I hear Richard brosnan last runners Friday.  A man of high integrity who never took a backward step.on a personal note a man who stood by me in tough times and I have never forgotten.who could forget no response and bonnies chance. I hope all in the industry recognize hs achievements.I know he don't want a fuss but I hope the atc  has plans to recognize his career.

    I've told her to get her juniors Gary.with the old human rights act age wouldn't be a barrier especially as Auckland has dogged up on amateur races and Cambridge seem to have fewer and fewer.
    Though with a new change at th he top the new candidates have offered their support to get them back.vote Bob Macaulay Scott plant and  len oughton all passionate trotting people and know th he grass roots.bob would be a great president.

    Another irrational decision by handicapping sub committee.horse with more than 2 wins can't go below 45.why.if you are a 75 year old golfer and u were once on 2 should they make your max 20.really its another in th he long list of decisions that really make no sense.i  would like to get them face to face and take them on.also no discretion conti he's but there is discretion if you read on.bugger me.

    Handicapper actually handicaps.mr carpenter announces the winner of the Caulfield cup gets one  kilo.he gave a lot of reasons.very refreshing.not black and white which is how a rating system should work.

    Why not give a maiden that wins the rating they win off.say 48 and they stay at 48 in the non maiden class.stops them getting too high too quick.
