    Can the Auckland Trotting Club survive?

    I was unable to attend the meeting last night unfortunately and am surprised at the lack of comment or feedback anywhere? Has everyone been sworn to secrecy?

    Saddle Trots Derek Balle Stables R8 tonight.

    Just looked up the Vincent Jockey Club in Papers Past. Wow! The meeting for 1st January 1918 (WW1 still going on), first off there were truckloads of Stewards and the prize money was huge? Prize money was in sovereigns ( To determine each sovereigns value in dollars, simply multiply the above decimal against the current world price of gold in troy ounces ), interesting aside

    Well done Puha

    I so wish it could be like that but unfortunately the what ifs will follow you all your life, that's just how some of us are made, despite the fruitlessness of the pursuit.

The planning is quite exhausting mainly because if I walk out, I never want to be found, so there

    Dual Venue Racing Calendar

    I think there should always be a "Plan B" for everything in life, and there is no reason why racing should be any different. I have plan bs for every aspect of my life, marriage (46 yrs), work,and the immediate future, it's a coping mechanism and I don't think I am on any spectrum

    It never stops.

    Anyhow the survey asks if you owned a horse would you participate in another survey. I said I would. I then get a poorly put together survey (not even online) by ier.com.au. How much do these consultants cost. This is crazy. Thanks for that snippet. Have mail in my inbox from IER, had no idea who they were and have left it opened till I decide whether to delete or not, obviously will now delete email

    montes on the way

    Was on the sports section of TV1 news tonight so you should be able to get a replay somewhere. Good article, interviews with Michelle, Maurice, Tim and a couple of jockeys so had great exposure.

    A story we should all heed....

    He might be a great hardworking young man but why didn't he tell this lot to go and get f*^×"#d? Unfortunately depression doesn't work like that.
