    Methinks Mr. Molloy has taken a very establishment stand on this discussion

    Anyone see the job vacancy listed on the HRNZ web site. A real good laugh.

    Job vacancy

    They already have a whole team of people, all on high salaries, no wonder stakes are dropping

    More Inca charges dropped

    Fully agree Tim, but as I understand it, there are 2 handicappers at the moment due to Aucklands insistence

    More Inca charges dropped

    The RIU should never have been estalished. Stipendiary stewards were previously employed by each of the codes and so their behaviour was controlled by the management and board of the code employing them. Since the RIU was established it has employed more and more people and established their own administrative system. Costs have escalated and the egos of the Stpendiary stewards have soared as their power is less and less restrained. It's time for this experiment to be discontinued and for stipendiary control placed back under the management of each of the 3 racing codes.

    The RIU are pressing charges against many of the accused that have had their criminal charges dropped. This is grossly unfair and in my opinion unscrupulous and malicious. Where is the decency and justice iin filing charges against people who have had charges dropped, due to no evidence, in a higher court. Talk about double jeapordy

    Interim CEO to be appointed ...

    I'm sorry Lightsout the information you have given us so far is all innuendo and no substance.

    I'm not criticisding Iraklis but where did the word agreeance come from, I understood the correct word is agreement

    I am not interested as to whether you are talking or not talking to the handicapper, all I am interested in is changing a handicapping system that is forcing owners to sell promising horses to Australia or the States.It is not possible to race them here due to an oppressive system that penalises young talented horses that happen to win one or two races early in their careers. If you are right and Mark Purdon is added to this "dysfunctonal" structure then we will be stepping even further into the mire. His knowledge of the difficulties imposed on horses that are not in the superstar category would be minimal

    based on information given to them by the handicapper. A man with a very closed view on things

    Absolute rubbish, name them

    Unbelievable

    They certainly control handicapping policy

    HRNZ is controlled by a number of staff who have been in their jobs for too long and have been promoted beyond their level of ability

    Why don't Auckland race on a Saturday night. Would make things a lot easier for trainers to get their horses to the races and with Aucklands population it should still get a good crowd

    Unbelievable

    They're catering for a different class of horse

    Contact the RIU if you have genuine claims. They employ racecourse detectives to deal with this sort of thing. This is not the place to rant about unsubstantiated misdeeds. I'm surprised Scoobie has allowed you to continue

    That change was in perpetuity so we're still getting it and we're still using it. He has also arranged a furtherv rebate introduced over 5 years so we'd be bankrupt without him

    For God sake, is this a racing discussion site or a political discussion site?
