    Glenda Hughes departing e-mail...

    Triple Alliance, your comments reflect the attitude of too many trainers, times are tough, can't make enough money, can't get owners, lets put my fees up so that my remaining owners can maintain my standard of living. Down the road he finds that he has even less owners and can't understand why. Oh well time to put my fees up again Training horses is one of the few areas of employment where you can expect a greater return if you don't do a good job for your client. If a horse isn't performing they put the horse out for a spell and then bring it back into work thereby costing the owner another small fortune bringing it back to its former standard of fitness, finds that it is still not performing to a sufficient level to race, so turn it out again and the cycle continues. Eventually the horse might get to the races but will never earn enough money for the owner to get his money back

    Breeding trotters

    You're dead right One More Lap, you would have to be a moron to breed horses so why are we?

    Whatapost. These charges will never be examined by a jury. They're such rubbish they'll never get that far.

    Other than minor drug offences by 2 or 3 of the people charged I would say yes in my opinion there is no substance to any of the race fixing charges

    It is clear to me that you have an agenda also, to keep throwing mud until some of it sticks. As I've said before there has not yet been one convicvtion as a result of these charges. People like you think that just because the horse they've , backed finished down the track, that it must be the result of somebody pulling their horse up. I can assure you it's bloody hard to win a race especially in Canterbury and when you've got one good enough to win a race the last thing you would do is pull the dam thing up

    I think you are assuming guilt What A Post. Nothing has been proved against anybody yet and the police are finding it difficult to find a case to put to a judge, hense all the postponements. Remember everybody is presumed innocent until proven otherwise.

    Justin gets very little business these days, if any and is generally held in contempt by the Harness Racing community

    It's so embarrasing

    If you stay in a job long enough you will be bound to be promoted to your level of incompetence
  17. Nothing will change. The board will continue to be irrelevant and the chairman totally inept. Hopefully now with RITA at the head of racing almost all decisions will be taken out of their hands

    Racing Act

    The Racing Act received it's third reading in Parliament yesterday with unamous support. The members of the RITA Board have all been appointed. Dean McKenzie has been appointed as Chairman. They will take contol of racing on the 1st July 2019. At last we will have a chance to rid ourselves of all the bludgers employed in administration of the NZ Racing Board , Thoroughbred Racing, Harness Racing New Zealand and the Racing Integrity Unit. The control of racing clubs will also come up for change. Maybe we will now see a resurection of racing and an improvement in stakes. The sooner the deadwood is removed the better

    Precisely, and Allen will follow. (I wonder why you have to adopt such a supercilious tone?)

    all trotting probs solved

    Every 2nd race at a harness meeting in France is a Monte. They are hugely popular. In saying that though the quality of their monte races are far superior to that farce we saw at Auckland last Friday
