    Favourites function on TAB website

    Usually It’s from results that I want to mark one in my favourite list, but that functionality wasn’t provided despite the horrific cost of the new site. So how do I add one after the day the races have been run? Don't tell me to use other sites, not interested in that!

    Likewise I like to spread mine around in small units, it’s not about expecting to win plenty, rather about some entertainment. That way I don’t have “ a gambling problem “. Actually I have put more into breeding and ownership over the decades - it’s not all about pumping cash into the TAB. On another note, it staggers me that the decision makers are decimating the shop window before reviewing the top (heavy) brass.

    We Might be in for a Shock

    Has there been some change to the original plan to base the races around distance not class of horse?

    TAB to cut 30% of its staff

    The press release from no surname Ian cleverly tells us that the redundancy (restructuring) proposal for consultation is for 30% of jobs to be cut - of perhaps more interest is what % reduction in staff cost this represents. I’ll bet it’s a lot less than 30%,. No doubt it’s much more of the lower paid and much less of the suits.

    Lincoln Farms boss slams RITA

    A couple more comments though. The turnover reduction has to be caused by Covid19. Great gesture if they pay some back, all we taxpayers benefit!

    They’re barking up the wrong tree. If they meet the criteria re turnover loss and keeping the employee paid (best endeavours to be to 80%) through the 12 weeks, the money in respect of that employee is theirs to keep.

    $15K all races in July

    Certainly can’t disagree with that Barry!

    $15K all races in July

    Not sure I agree that the fields will be relatively even Barry. The noms go in for the distance you favour, and the field is likely to have high rated horses lining up against low rated horses, so the punter will need to decide whether the handicap difference is sufficient. It may be that 63kg won’t stop the best horse in the race dominating. The limit on trialling is probably unnecessary where some stake money is paid to also rans, but if you read the blurb you can understand the concern that trials might be full of horses and races a bit thin, in July. There’s plenty of negativity on here, but remember that this is a reset to get some racing happening in the last month of the racing year (July) and tweaks will happen quite quickly based on how well (or not) it works. In my book some credit should be given to NZTR for what they have announced.

    You’re right MM, missed 2 races at Sydney and 3 at Flemington! Good luck this week.

    $15K all races in July

    I thought waiting until July was too long - you seem to have ignored the many horses that were just back in the early stages of getting ready for a Winter season when the lockdown shut the training tracks - another 9 weeks wait for them? These horses had a spell over Summer and another spell starting in April was problematic so they have been kept in light work away from track work.

    Owners muscle up with OIA requests

    There is no limited liability like you get with a company, actually the government probably has to stand behind it, so walking away from contracts won’t be an option.

    Can't believe JA did that ...

    Funny that - I stumbled into Main Street unaware of its existence, through a shortcut. My mistake Gruff, but I followed what I thought was a topic related to John Allen and got more of the right wing rubbish that most of us are tired of reading!

    Can't believe JA did that ...

    I saw this topic listed and thought “someone commenting on a John Allen decision”. A tb racing site - no longer.

    Lincoln Farms boss slams RITA

    That’s half the situation. Think of it this way; unless their employer is paying below the subsidy (could happen for a under 20 hours employee) , all employees will have received the whole subsidy by the end of 12 weeks. The fact they have worked some or all of that time is irrelevant.

    Lincoln Farms boss slams RITA

    As I said, not exactly on topic, but any repayment of subsidy is going to be less likely if the employee is still there after 12 weeks. You asked for where to look for the answer, sorry that the only place I’ve seen with anything like the answer.

    This came in an email from Trainers Assn (forwarded to me by Owners Fed) last week, a bit light on evidence and not exactly on topic but it aligns to my thinking.

    I don’t think that is correct. Thats how hard it is to see the future, everyone had a different take on things.
  23. Peter R S

    Lincoln Farms boss slams RITA

    My take is that if the employer pays that employee more than the subsidy over the 12 weeks there is no paying back.

    Lincoln Farms boss slams RITA

    There’s a huge inconsistency in the numbers quoted by that guy - seemed to be an attention seeking prat to me. How much did he pay his staff (his so called family) when doors were closed?

    “Fletcher Building got NOTHING ....FFS can you not understand that the subsidies are for employees...the government is just using employers to administer a temporary emergency benefit to their employees.” Not quite how it will work for a construction firm - they get 12 weeks up front which helps cash flow, they keep the listed employees in their job and and pay them a bit more than the subsidy whilst sites are closed, then the whole team go back to work after 6 weeks and what’s left of the subsidy covers the top up over that 6 weeks and any restart cost (in this period the profitability of jobs will take a bit of a hit). I would call that helping the employer too. Of course at the outset no one knew how long this would last, and it’s different for the poor buggers who are still closed under level3.
