  3. Alright thanks for the heads up, but I'm on the next start the stable has over 2856m! (And no, (before anyone starts having a hernia), unfortunately the great man himself is not behind "his" twitter account).

    Podcast.

    Mate, download the BGP (Boys Get Paid) app, and once downloaded you will be able to view/listen to various podcasts, recordings etc that may be of interest to you. Likewise with the Boys Get Paid Facebook page, well worth checking out. Their original Facebook page/group was removed recently, but a replacement is already up and running.
  5. Are we going on the inside, or the outside road cone today? This really needs to be included as part of the key info, such as track conditions and rail positioning etc
  6. I have tried searching for "freeflixhq" (google playstore) but unfortunately have had no luck. I found "FreeFlix HQ 2020 new", but it didn't include any racing/sport. Any chance you could post a screenshot of the app that is needed? Many thanks in advance.
  7. The CPI model has it's uses, but at the same time could be argued that it is inherently flawed too. Good on ya Pickels, keep that phone charger handy champ.
  8. NZ's best time ever!?!?! Debatable. Depends on what factors one wishes to compare. The TAB was pretty close to going belly up last Friday, and it was only the taxpayer throwing coin at it, that has kept it afloat. For the time being. Season 1978-79 was pretty good. I would say a lot "gooder" than today. Let me list the reasons: 1) The NZ TAB made a profit of $14.13million. That's over $14 million pure profit, in the late 70's! In the 70's!!! How much would that be in today's money? That would buy a few pairs of flares. What were house/land prices back then? The purchasing power of that amount of money... imagine what it could have bought back then, that amount of money. 2) Racing coverage within the print media back then, was a lot more extensive that what it is today. Sh!t, they even printed the fields in the major daily newspapers. Several racing publications were prominent and sat on many more bookcases back then, than today. 3) Racing could be heard on a radio wherever radio reception could be received. Unlike today, where no races are heard on any AM/FM radio transmission. The only requirement back then, to hear a race, was a set of ears, and a radio. No internet required. Thus much more cost effective (for the punter) than today. No doubt others more knowledgeable than me would be able to provide more reasons as to why racing, or more specifically, the state of NZ racing was a lot better back then, than what it finds itself in today. I will finish by referring to Winston's comments last week. He wanted "racing to be made great again." By making it great again, he is saying the current state is not great. We all know that, but maybe Pickles is the exception. "Again" can mean repeated. So perhaps, racing can return to the heights, not to mention the profitability, of the late 1970's. Perhaps it can. Maybe it can't.
  9. But the $50m website reckons this so called champion is on debut?!
