  1. Past long time Secretary of the NZ Racing conference (Mr Algie) posted his three reasons in the racing calender many years ago why female riders would never be able to compete successfully against the males. I cut this clipping out at the time but seem to have lost it over the years. What would he think of todays riders who are successfull anywhere in the world?
  2. Ripped all my front lawn up and after seed applied sand from New Brighton Beach. Result a great green lawn and this all accomplished in 2020.
  3. Cure for bank pain...... Imagine this.... I have had no back problems since. The horse was to gallop with a mate in blinkers after solo work was good. She led out and then was restrained at 200 m. so the other horse could come alongside on the outer. When she saw the gallop mate she swerved left, saw a trestle and jumped this leaving me to come down for vertical landing at about 38 mph face first. Cure immediate. Cannot recommend this would work every time though!
  4. The panic over a Jockey with a travel recorded between Sydney and Melbourne and abandoned meetings and cancellations must be over. The ten possible jockeys that this could have referred to are all back riding again. But to change the subject slightly I will name the countries that must have idiots in charge in order of reactions to Co Vid 19 ..... UK, USA, Australia, Iran...... Congratulations China..... for actions taken and although he is crazy too North Korea ...... but few would be going to that country would they?
  5. I have been drinking Corona Light and suffered no ill effects. Every 14 days I get another dozen.
  6. Please .... No more talk of all weather tracks for gallops. Turf is best. Only excepts are Picnics Beach Races occasionally. Riccarton wasted $ on a wood.bark chip training track years ago. Now they have a track where there is a coarse base done by a roadworks company who sold off all the top soil. The grass on the surface does not have great roots going down, so is very hard. Horses now jar up racing on this road like surface. Look at the numbers racing on it today.
  7. Leo Molloy (Memories) Leo did me proud..... One ride one win, my first..... He had a bad check during the race, but got up to win by a neck at Motukarara. I had a $100 each way at TAB the day before... which was worth near $3000 for a winning stake of $450 in the race..... I had another $200 to put on race day but was being watched by too many as I left bird cage asking why it opened up so short, so never put that on. The odds were much better at start time however. Leo was to ride again for me at Trentham but broke his leg in a race fall at Greymouth t

    Ricky May

    Driver Ricky May was flown to Dunedin Hospital last night, after collapsing during a meeting at the Omakau track in Central Otago.He fell backwards, seemingly unconscious in the sulky, before falling to the ground.The race steward's confirmed May had a heart attack.He's reined nearly three thousand winners since he began racing in 1976.
  9. Is Dexter Dunn coming back? Two drives in Canada (Mohawk) this week for two wins. It's the first time we have seen anything of him that we can bet on. Both were about 5/1.
