  1. I wish!!! track riding finished when I got to 68kg. Sit in a cart now but still not over 75k and 66 years old
  2. Not uneducated!!!! nearly 30 years Police service means I know what I'm talking about
  3. KInda like the charge against BO. Years ago it was a chargeable offence for using the "F" word and I did use that to charge people and get them to court. Its now considered to be colloquial language but the RUI still consider that you should be fined for it. Kinda like the search rules, need a warrant to search unless you are the RUI

  5. They get paid their full wages made up of $585 plus the employer tops that up to their normal hourly rate so for example if they do 40 hours on a building site per week they get their full rate as normal but $585 of that comes from the subsidy
  6. No to both. Just happen to know what I'm talking about with over 20 years experience ensuring that the rules are complied with
  7. The subsidy is paid to the employee over the 12 week period to assist the employer to keep their staff on the books during the lockdown period It is for the employees benefit not to help the employer pay his bills while in lockdown. Thats why there are so many now being required to pay the money back because they have used it to cover other expenses and not for the employees. It was a badly thought out decision made in haste to pay the subsidy to the employers for the benefit of the employees rather than paying it direct to the employees account but with all the other payouts being made the govt agencies that normally handle these sorts of things (ie IRD and MSD) were already going to be overworked.
  8. and the horses that are already qualified get a run where??? or do they just go straight into a race field without a workout or trial run. AS I ve already said you wont have workouts run prior to the start of a race meeting hence the open days Monday to Wednesday to accomodate them with no racing those days. Addington with the bigger horse population available gets 2 race days compared to the North getting 1 per week.
  9. Yes I know that Lloyd. I ve been to both in North and South Islands. My Point is the numbers involved eg March figures Trials in Auckland 3 trials at Puke total entries 16 Cambridge 3 trial entries 12 In the south at Rangiora 12 trials 62 entries Ingi;ll 7 trials 26 entries workouts for March Auck 9 in total for 29 entries and 12 with 54 entries, Cambridge 6 with 31 entries but Canterbury at the Mot 6 with 30 entries. So I cant see how the suggestion that trials/workouts could be run before the races and would have to be held on non race days ie Monday Tuesday and Wednesdays
  10. When you normally have 15 odd heats of workouts and trials when are you going to find time to squeeze them in before an 8 race meeting??
  11. I would have thought that Monday Tuesday and perhaps wednesday would be set aside for trials/workouts so that horses coming back would be fit for racing at a later date. Otherwise no racing till August when there are enough horses fit enough after their layoff.
