    Stables got a reaction from john legend in trot races show day   
    I agree John. I prefer pacing races myself, but I suppose it was Dominion Handicap day so fair enough to give the trotter more prominence

    okay i took the time to read this particular peice
    https://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA9908/S00424/peters-speech-on-winebox.htm
     
    Im wondering given this small peice of information ive read... and just briefly mind you!!
    it seems on the face of it... it was about tax dodging!!
    was Winston justified in bring this into the light??  OF COURSE HE WAS!!!
    i neednt think too much further... for what was taking place back then.. it has been occurring the world over!!!
     
    but here we are... trying to use the Winebox enquiry as a defense for justifying the actions of the ones who leaked private information!!??  pffffft

    i'm thinking the court action is fkn pointless. He's desisted eventually from going Tolley and Bennet, so that leaves just the Public Service.
    So if the old tosser wins theres a precedent that any other aggrieved can use. The Public Service has always had leaks from partisan politics. And to care about rorts is human. 
    He gets SFA and the taxpayer gets the bill. i'd say 1/2 a mil minimum, gone that could go to say cancer drugs.
    It disgusts me and dont Ewe tell me the soak has got a reputation worth a damn.

    Hey chump the point is,(seeing a sledgehammer is required) WP is head and shoulders above any other minister when it comes to gains for racing.
    For this he is pilloried by you and others, who tellingly have no substance to their arguments,and rely on real or imagined personal animosity.

    The superanuation form spells out in black and white that the section concerning a partner can be left blank. In that case further consultation would be needed.
    Clearly Winston Peters did not have any dishonest intent leaving it blank. However Peters or the staff should have got back as a follow up. Leaving the section blank does not mean there is no partner. 
    The serious matter is feeding the information to politicians whose staff in turn can leak the information. The fact the outstanding amount was paid back meant there was no outstanding matter requiring disclosure. Clearly the disclosure was an intent to damage the political aspirations of Peters.
    It all boils down to intent. Peters did not have any dishonest intent. However several others did have a nefarious intent.

    Let's not get bogged down in pointing out the difference in Stake monies between the Cup (Pacers) and The Dominion (Trotters), keep that for another thread.
    I've merely reallocated existing Stakes

    Not anti all stars at all. In fact they have to be admired.
    In the United States a trainer is only allowed 2 horse in a race which I think is a great idea. Think if that was the case we wouldn't have the exodus of better class horses to Aus or USA. 
    If this happened then they would have to decide on what horses they wanted to keep. You would find the Regan Todd's, Steve McRaes, Mark Jones etc would have a cup runner.
    Say if Spankem leads in the cup I bet that he will only hand to one of his stables mates. Do you really think the lead will be there for anyone else. And if he does hand up to a stable mate then the lead will not be there for anyone else.
    But no that's not team driving!

    Looks like YOU will be the one spending another year in Form 2.
    The new policy recreates a c1, with 1 win horses only allowed below R45.  But with no horses being re-rated all of the incumbent 2+ winners who are sub45 remain there until they win. 
    MHouse’s suggestion allows the 1win Only class to start very quickly. 
    And, it was so OBVIOUS that it didn’t need mentioning, 2+ win horses now can Not fall to the bottom which Decreases the horses available for the log-jam down there.
    However the issue of a maiden winner becoming anything from 48 through to 58 has not been addressed. NZTR maiden winners get 2 Points more at Ellerslie than they do at Hokitika.

    Stables got a reaction from Hunter the punter in 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.

    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.
