    In my view

    Go back to the old sysem, 1 win, up 1 grade, with more races for 2 and 3 year olds. Go back a class if horse has 6 unplaced starts, further back than 6th inclusive but no further than 2 win class. Quite simple to follow, 2 year olds get 1 penalty for each second win unless the stake to the winner is more than $20,000.

    Mid Week Seniors - booked out

    Why not at least seniors usually have money to spend, kids generally are always waiting for the next pay day

    Oh dear, this doesn’t read well

    NZ First will not collapse this coalition, Peters is well aware that he needs to find a way for his party to continue without him, If he collapses the coalition his party will disapear at the next election. There are a lot of things in the Messara report that will never be ennacted. Racing will have a small increase in betting income but no material changes will be made. We will be still floating on the same ship we were 20 years ago, but somebodys pulled out the plug

    Sweeeeeny SHUT UP

    Agree whole heartedly. There must have been a decision made at producer level or higher because we never get the judges call at all now. I like to hear his call of the placings , margins and time, not some person who wouldn't know one end of a horse from another, waffling on.

    It seems that none of Messara's recommendations will be enacted then. We should all start wearing black armbands for the demise of racing in New Zealand

    UMC still at it

    Shame, but it was well known that he had soundness problems, that's why he hadn't raced as a younger horse. Lets hope they can get him back

    What a joke

    It would be totally unfair on Juniors to make them compete against amateurs, the obvious solution wouls have been for the club to call for South Island Juniors to make themselves available and for the club to pay their fares

    The Williamson's Clean up

    I agree, what trainers other than Phil train in that area. I don't mean to disparage Phil, he's a great trainer but it's a farce really

    Times are tough

    Hi westview, you mention that 2 years ago Methven had a deficit of $90,000, how did they manage to face a loss of that size?

    Times are tough

    Yet, why do so many trainers nominate?
  20. Same old tired lot. The only difference is the kindred bodies now have no representation

    Yes but they did promise that they would enable famiy to enter the mine. A promise made by John Key, which was subsequently renequed

    Racing minister .

    The man's 73 years old for gods sake. Get off his back. As for Trumps allegation that the Pike River recovery plan was a lefty feel good bubble, I would remind him that the recovery plan was instigated by the previous National government. I assume Trump is emulating his name sake by spouting false news

    Ten out of 33

    Regardless of what you think a horse is worth Blue it's up to the owners to refuse to sell their horse for less than they think it's worth
