    Its always owners right but the timing and how it was done is the question and Tony not the first trainer that horse has been taken from

    Owners decision apparently

    Winter Cup runner though T K Allan was trainer and riding earlier in week now in Pitman stable with Maira Sanson back on?
  4. Everyones favourite topic this time of the year but after reading Paul Neilson quote saying with the Ellerslie hill sale a significant amount of money from that should be put back into jumps racing as really the Ellerslie Hill belonged to jumps racing. Yes one can't disagree the hill is a wonderful spectacle for jumping but answer this, will more money into jumps racing give them more jockeys , more horses for jumps racing, more jumps trainer as we have the top jumps trainers racing with a number of jumpers all at pension age or more and they are all in the CD. The South Island has only surv
  5. What a day at Hastings with 4 different McNab riders riding a winner wonder if Skelton brothers ever had 4 in a day individually.
  6. Finally we start seeing the discrepancies a surrounding what Opie can get away with and the rest have to conform to. Who gave dispensation to take ride, RIU? Should have been fined last time he done it which was only a week ago and suspended this time like any other jockey would of. When wasting it doesn't take alot to put 1.76 lb or 0.8 kg back on
  7. With the period without local racing and then to return with limited meetings to get things going again be a reduction in meetings?? They said there was a 5% down turn in turnover below last year not bad I would think all things considered. A saving of 5 mill on operating expenses and 7 mill on staff expenses must be a plus though don't agree with all the changes they made with there being no promotion of racing through media etc. Least now we do have some more positive accountability in this over expensive operation.
  8. Yes that's correct McKenize cost cutting saying they can save $90,000 a year by not having one, then JCA were paying for it to be there so they can do their job with integrity but now they say its a part of the supply from TAB for them that they are contracted to do. The TAB still fail the industry.
  9. See TAB still at it with closing prices as how could a horse at Otaki in Race 7 walk into the starting gates last paying $9 then win and pay $5.50. Where's the integrity in their business.
  10. Yeah Winx grandmother (Vegas Magic)served by Al Akbar there (Grangewilliam)to produce Vegas Showgirl the mother of Winx.
  11. Sorry got that wrong Winx grandmother served
  12. If you watch the race closely on the first round through there and you will see, as they get to big screen, you will see the golf ball bouncing on the track so in fact the dickhead had hit the ball as the horse were going past.
  13. La Mer bred at Wynthrope stud in New Plymouth and when finished racing was brought by Captain Tim Rogers who set up Grangewilliam Stud
  14. Vegas Showgirl was by Al Akbar so Winx mother was served there as she was meant to go to Batavian but he died so they picked to go to Al Akbar.
  15. Jump at 100 came up wrong horse chipped into it and next jump jumped a bit high running it down a fraction and lost momentum and the rider gave it a couple of kicks and a slap with stick then at 600 another couple of kicks then proceeded to pull it up. It that's been hard ridden your glasses must of fogged up as for getting carted out by Ave Maria proves he still had a horse under him as he had already made up his mind to pull it up before then anyway that why it was that wide but the horse had put itself back into the race. If it was his intention was to ride the horse to give it every
