  1. I hope all is okay...I see the dogs no longer have a trainer....properly a grnz mistake..
  2. Think I will back it from now on....can you give me a few more that cant win....lol
  3. Has no chance unless collisions in the race....so what your saying it has a chance..not a intelligent statement really
  4. Think he ran around 18.40 in the heat last year and 18.30 in the final....great effort by him and a true starter he is...he is one that will handle backing up...be interesting how many of the others do...
  5. Think we are dreaming jonesy...weather is worst 2mrw....thunderstorms and heavy rain predicted from 7am in the morning...hope I'm wrong but also I hope they let all know early enough ...
  6. Haha...it will be like Christmas to everyone that is worried about other people's business....what is going to happen is to do with grnz decision on who can train....and really there is nothing anyone can do when it does come out......we as licensed people have been sold out by our own clubs on having a say and what we think no longer matters...
  7. By the way lorna at cambridge still does it the right way under our rules..
  8. The biggest thing that worries me is at auckland were the riu are breaking there own rules with swabs...every trainer has the right to view water being put in there swab bottles..but at auckland we have a swab steward that says no...I have pre prepared bottles because that's what I do at the gallops and as he told me his integrity is beyond reproach....love to see the day he gets a positive because there own guidelines in greyhound racing say you are untitled to view this..
  9. I believe the brendon Cole charge is still being held up because of the spca....what I don't understand is it he was dead baiting at the best .....so why hasn't he been charged with this at least ..with the live baiting pending spca decision for further charges....
  10. Bit disappointed with Dennis arrogance tonight on 6 news...I now take back my original symphaty for the man.....geez its every one else fault....and no it's not the first case as stated ...David had one in ch ch with a dog before.....sorry greyhoundlover...you are right
  11. Looks very much the latest dogs are in Pam's name...presume she will be the trainer from now on....bit lost how mark purdon could not be on his property when he lost his license...yet here we have a unlicensed trainer admitting he's training and living on the property....maybe Pete early could ask Mike gober for his comments on his radio show....so we all know were we stand.
  12. Still don't agree ..sure south island do what has to be done....but why stop something that is working....a 7hr trip to levin is not needed when the system is working in the north....make the system work in the south island...maybe grnz need to employ John and annmarie to go down there to make it work....still say sell levin as it used to work before at Sanson...comes down to managment
  13. In my opinion and not knowing the full facts...if that was admitted in the hearing then maybe the riu should have continued to go after the perpetrators and been a bit more leaneant on Dennis...harsh penalty on a innocent 70yr old man...sure he is responsible but really 2yrs
  14. Sorry cant agree...why take away the most successful rehoming kennel in the north to try something else....because the main base isn't working. Why take away from one that is...why not sell Levin..put the money back into stakes or take a share in the northern kennel...might only be worth 500k even though grnz paid over a million but hey let's move on....biggest investment cock up ever.....but we all said it at the time and unfortunately ..the board at the time including maro has to take the fsll
  15. And by the way most people know I don't see eye to eye with Dennis...but a meth cheat...never ever..I have a lot more respect for him than that
  16. Sorry guys...we all know Dennis is innocent...taken the fall for his son...and if the riu had done there job they would not be blaming a 70yr old man.....but after 2 meth positives his son Carrys on running the kennels....shame on the riu
  17. How are dogs going to get to Levin? From auckland and waikato...why change a system that is working in the north?.....silly me I know one of the board members who lives up here will be doing it...but hold on that wont get him frequent flyer points....unless he flys them.....
  18. In the stripes report today the stripes report says opawa silver fractured her leg......this is totally incorrect the dog fractured a seasomoid...massive difference......
  19. Sorry gary...mike is right any race is better than no race....dont forget at there chrsitmas meeting they run heats for a maiden final on group one night....i still ask the question why didnt robert get noms reopened?????..
  20. My point is for turnover 12 races is better than 11 and dont forget you dont get to c5 without winning a maiden..and no i have no maidens....managment need to look at themselves....there is no effort put in to fill feilds....normally they reopen noms...why not today for a group race meeting..??...
  21. Unreal to think there is only 11 races on thursday...no c5 sprint and no maiden race...surely there must have been enough noms to run either...even if the c5 race was a 6 or 7 dog field..it must help turnover? ...Or are we starting to see a decline in numbers in the north?
