  1. Im very surprised no one has mentioned the fracas at Ellesrlie last Saturday that involved the security guard and a northern trainer. The guard seemed to take his highly important role of gate supervisor to the extreme when clutching the trainer by the throat when he insisted he enter the birdcage to collect his horse. A few of his training colleagues jumped in to help as he was literally on a hiding to nothing. Where are, is, were, the RIU with this incident? Surely it cant be a good look for the game, especially on Auckland Cup day!

    Trentham presenting

    The biggest waste of money that clubs have "invested" into in the last ten years. The guy adds nothing but noise pollution. How he has lasted this long says a lot about our administrators, not our punters. Please get rid of him!

    Craig Rail.

    Apparently he was "filling in" which wasnt announced when he was appointed. He did a very good job however. I think guys like him, Teaz, and Evans get a pretty rough deal. Teaz is outstanding and I prefer him over anyone in NZ. Knows his stuff, knows the real industry participants, and calls a great race. We need to look after guys like him. Evans will be the next caller for the CD if those "in the know" actually know anything at all. There's a few callers who get the royal treatment and some have been red carpeted to their prominent roles - God knows how. We should also spare a thought for a guy like Tom Wood who could have given up completely after the way he was treated. He's having the last laugh now though.

    Absolutely utterly appalling

    And there's the evidence.

    So much sense here. Careful or the "leaders" in Wellington might believe in it.

    Absolutely utterly appalling

    Like everything today - history, tradition, and heritage all go out the window for the new 5 minute wonders. Racing is sharply being overtaken by it.

    Oh yes! Abide had to grind thru the Cameron handbrake. Bit like Natuzzi with Coleman aboard.

    Who cares? Theyre moving to Omoto so just enjoy that!!! Theyll out do Trentham in some way so just bloody enjoy good old fashioned grassroots racing. If you look hard enough you’ll find things to nit pick in any country with their industry. Get off your ass and get to the actual races instead of waiting for the next thing to mope about. Honestly.
