    An Open Letter To Mauro, Sean and the Board.

    That could not happen....under money laundering laws you have to have proof were the money goes or comes from you cannot gift a house without paying massive taxes...only way is if someone dies and leaves a property to family...most family homes would be in a trust which protects you from losing it .

    Just another thing here which i found out yesterday is if grnz or riu charged him 18mnths ago with dead baiting the spca warned them they proberly would not pursue the live baitng charge as he had been charged....remember the cost of the spca investigations would be high........but if this was fact why were lps not notified...to now say they don't know who the person is is when they were part of the original charge is ridiculous.

    The courts come down hard on animal welfare issues and our courts do not care if photos are illegal......just have a look at the cleaver case only months ago...the photos in that were in his nackerey....

    $2000 Import Fee

    Just read on another site....greg kerr is going to put a $2000 charge on imported dogs....have to ask were are we going to get race dogs up north greg ? You spoke to me last week asking why we are struggling for noms at waikato ? i explained 2 points one there selection policy 2 the lack of breeding in the north......now you are within 3mnths going to charge $2000 to bring dogs in....it takes 2yrs to breed and race again.....tell you that will make me call it quits...it will be the nail in the coffin....sometimes wonder wether grnz under the latest managment is trying to save the sport or kill it?

    $2000 Import Fee

    My main point here and as a example which is fact.....one of my owners bred a litter payed to get it reared .broken in at a cost of 30k to 2yrs of age...not one has won a race and 2 have been rehomed through gap with the rest being put on gap list now......before they had imported 3 dogs at a cost off 15k which of none have gone to gap ...so now they have just imported another one at a cost of 6k so they can still enjoy racing dogs.....they have tryed to buy a nz dog but the quality offered is not there all they are getting is cast offs for 6k.....i believe it should be there right to a equal playing field and have the choice....if you want to put a fee on imports do it when they go to gap and then we know were the money has gone........and the bitch breed from won 3 group races over the middle distance...

    Auckland cup

    Good crowd....great atmosphere...and well run by the club....track had plenty of water ...sad thing was the food was the worst meal ever seen...cold meat pastries.....stale buns and watered curry with cold chicken......maybe the food heated up and changed later...... ...no desert and no coffee....as 1 visitor said ..next time i will buy my own drinks and get a burger...

    Auckland cup

    The track was in good nick....my point being it has been lacking water and with the drizzle friday and saturday the track was watered perfectly....hope the club has someone there saturday this week to make sure it is watered before 10am sunday when it is normally done from friday.....and if the club has used nigel...congrats to them...a very knowledgeable man with years of experience

    Dead dogs on interislander

    I have travelled dogs between islands many times.....have found interislander staff very accommodating....on hot days i ask to be on the open deck and on cold and wet days i ask to be under cover...never have i been refused.....human era is a bad thing and we are ultimately responsible for our dogs welfare.....ive always when travelling have a motto.......rather have a cold dog than a dead dog......

    AUCKLAND DROUGHT

    The problem these clubs have is being sued ...auckland for example refuse to listen...as i said the riu have said all racing clubs have to have track staff on tracks the day before and morning off races....this is not happening at auckland which leaves them open to be sued if a dog breaks down due to neglect....funny thing when it happens it will be every one elses fault bar theres.

    AUCKLAND DROUGHT

    Agree the track water problem is unbelievable..2 of my 4 dogs did pads...why put water on the track and then put the pads around 5 times after on the tractor which drys out the track....unfortunate we have robert roberts running things and no management...track staff dont want to be told what to do by a robot in the office...i was told when i scratched 13 dogs 3yrs ago by the riu that someone has to be at the track the day before racing.....this has not happened ...bow your heads again auckland your a disgrace..

    Waikato monday

    Why with one race spare would you run a c5 sprint when you already had heats for c5....why would you not cater for a c4 457 race for dogs that had no opportunity to start......pretty obvious why....common robert a bit of thought would not go astray....and no i have no c4 dogs....just bit of common sense to have another middle distance race...

    Defamation

    Big enough and ugly enough agree .. but sometimes enough is enough....even i get hurt...

    Defamation

    Also the argument was supposed to be in front of people...video evidence shows me leaving the track after the race with the dog and not ever going back to the grandstand....only one person was around the owner amd myself in the carpark and on my web cam in the van the whole conversation was recorded.......sad sad people

    Mad harry

    What the hells going on ....mad harry scratched with no vet check...just a conversation between vet and stipe because the dog pooped in his kennel....then after they scratched it they decided to take its temperature.....surly before a dog is scratched it is intitled to a vet check.....poor decision mike austin....poor guy travelled 6 hours for this for you to tell him you know more about grehounds than him....man no one could look at a bed and say the dogs scratched......no wonder there is no respect for the riu ...
  25. Hound Fan

    Mad harry

    He has admitted the dogs temo was taken after the dog was scratched...my whole point is he scratched the dog without a vet check...the dog had not been looked at at all...
