    tim vince got a reaction from Iraklis in All Stars slugfest   
    I guess when tiger was winning all the time the winning prize should have been reduced.   That not right..i want to have the big carrot like a big  pick 6.same as group racing.the challenge is to bring low stake clubs like Cambridge to better levels .maybe knock 300k from head office and add 1000 to 300 races.but keep the carrot.

    If it don't fit in my back pocket with half a pencil behind me ear no go.kids we used to imitate the old timers and it was a habit till the demise of the old best bets.of course a transistor was good so u could listen to the double races from other meetings,the  bloke withh th transistor was king.when me and a matee got one at about 15 being the little shits we were we were surrounded by punters and we turned it off with a furlong to run.the  mob none to pleased.we didn't do it again. Too scared.great days but well gone now.some say I'm still a little shit.hard to argue

    Not a lot but to be fair decent turnouts and good facilities so they did okay.lots of faces not seen for years which was great.gr8 atmosphere but problem is how many come on a regular basis.how 're we get them back.it is very hard to promote week after week.most I talked to  were more likely to return if if was Saturday night.auckland traffic.in the old days on Fridays many would go home from  work and then come to the park.traffic stops that.so how about Saturday nights returning.they definitely deserved 7.5 out of 100.

    The reason we are exporting if u talk to owners or trainers is the handicapping.personally ihhave one going on a 50 50 tomorrow,prob 4 in the wings.one has a rating near 60 here . In Australia where he is going he is on 40 on a minimum 30..anther who is mid 50s is 31. And so it goes on.we discourage longevity and aged horses.i know another who ran 4t h Friday going to Melbourne on deal.i h have a contact searching for older horses and plenty of them .He just laughs when u get same points for winning 20k race as u do a  7k.its all very well basking in he glory of the big races which were amazing but the reality day in  day out of having a good supply of horses relies on like with like.im personally getting rid of decent horses because if they are  not on a  realistic rating or close wasting my time.suits seem completely unable to deal with it.

    The racing is the attraction and the personnel.like rugby league final it's the game and the players.i think that is what we need the spotlight on..both have been great but the outside world haven't been included to cheer them on.

    I like the idea of ads on back of buses but not sure cost.with Auckland traffic plenty of time to read them.could put promos etc on there.example all tap beer 5 bucks 5 to 6.
