  1. I have zero problem with Te Akau as a whole. They seem to pursue excellence in every facet of the game and get the results which that deserves. So well done to them. I think they could maybe do better than chucking a flat "expertise surcharge" on each lot (it's a bit harsh that it's a 20% surcharge on a $40k lot and a 2% surcharge on a $400k lot), but then again they're listing their buys on their site as the sale goes on so they can't wait until the end and go "We've bought 70 horses, we need to recoup $x for expenses, so let's add $x divided by 70 to each lot". So it's fair enough I gue
  2. Lot 7: bought for $160k, 10% share costs $17k. Lot 32: $200k, $21k. Lot 62: $120k, $13k. Lot 74: $40k, $5k. Lot 77: $125k, $13.5k Lot 89: $100k, $11k. Lot 96: $260k, $27k. Literally every lot they bought in the first 100 and for which they still have shares available is being syndicated for a total price of $10k more than they paid. Nobody said it was unfair, nobody said it was wrong. Somebody just said that - when racing is supposedly dying and stakes are terrible and every other trainer is having to give up the game or leave the country - seeing

  8. Please can we please ignore my late changes which took me off the runner up and onto my first winner, please? Thanks. (It's a joke, Memphis).
  9. I'm terrible at saying please; it's one of my (many) flaws. Thanks for pulling me up, and thanks for running the comp.

  13. I took that as the first lot being from dellajaz_ and the second lot being from mr_gee. But you're the boss.
