    Reefton race 1

    You called it RR. Good to see the stipes picked it up too. Obviously they read your post or blind Freddie told them. Just as a comparison, junior driver Sam Thornley had his very first raceday drive at Addington last year. His whip action was really bad. Looked awful. Anyway he went to town whacking the daylights out of his horse and the the horse won. He subsequently lost his junior driver licence (immediatley) as a result from that drive and was demoted to a trials only horseman, until he had received further training and education. One can only hope someone has a quiet word to the jockey in this particular case at Reefton.

    Dream Team

    Pretty sure Macmillan Feeds were involved in one part of it, but that may have been back in the "Harness Racing Weekly" days.

    Dream Team

    Has to be cost cutting. Surely. They had to fork out over a grand in gift cards for the most recent competition. I was fortunate enough to win some decent coin 3 or 4 times over the years, it was a good concept and provided some extra interest during the season. It would be good to see it come back sometime in the future.

    Mate I just received an email this arvo saying exactly that. I don't know, it could be good oil like you say, or it could just be spam.

    Trackside dont care

    Agreed. In the same way the producer in the studio, will say right we need to play a commercial, one would think that they could tell the presenter onscreen to remind the viewers to switch over to Trackside 2 to view the action from (insert racecourse name here). How hard can it be?

    Raceform

    Reminds me when I was of the same age... my mate had a flash new digital watch that had a remote control function to operate TVs. We would often tag along together to the races with the old man. Lots of punters would be gathered around the tv screens ontrack showing teletext divis, and races from other venues. When punters least expected it, usually about furlong out from the end of a race being screened on TV, my mate would point his watch to the telly and push a button on his watch.... zip... blackness. The ole standby button hahaha fark it was funny as, loved getting the punters angry as F. I must see if I can track another one of those watches down and relive my youth. Bloody greyhounds on a Sunday arvo at my TAB. Be great entertainment doing that again.

    Unbelievable

    Glad it makes perfect sense to you mate. His response does make sense, but the fact remains he did not answer my questions. My point (which perhaps you have missed) was turnover figures (both tote and FF) were once published weekly, but not anymore. He'd make a good politician that gentleman.

    Unbelievable

    Unfortunately my question could not (would not) be answered. But thanks for putting in an appearance Dean and throwing a few words together. Shot mate.
