    Racing Revamp .

    Actually Nuks I think China will be up and running first and imports will flood in from there. Cant afford to make same stuff here without charging megabucks, that's why companys moved offshore and we got the cheap imports. Could easily be wrong though. Certainly going to be interesting to see how a new economy takes shape. Like any game there's always winners and losers.

    I understand they pay the heads pretty well and for some big stories so possibly not too much aside for a rainy day.

    A Message from our Leaders

    They'll cut stakes first. Matter of priorities.

    NZTR update

    Not entirely, but no camera appearances nor even mentioned in dispatches with a comment. Final result is certainly going to go way beyond the Messara report though the 'Mess...' will reign for a while.

    NZTR update

    And no sight nor sign of our Minister for Racing for the last fortnight. Surprised? I'm not.

    But don't you recall the reports of long queues outside NZ gun shops a fortnight ago? WTF was that about?

    Mike, by then I think they'll have to lift the ban on the human consumption of horsemeat in NZ. Otherwise there'll be a big run on shotgun bullets.

    No, but not bad for a young lad with very little previous experience.

    I've got a dozen grandsons Crusty. Can lend you some if you like - none of them new though but in first class second hand condition.

    South Island Jumps Racing....

    You can bet that farm trained horses like Myers will be ready to rumble the moment the balloon goes up.

    Robot jockeys

    Monkeys would work too. Not very far removed from some going around now.

    This is the future......

    Can they be nobbled? Scored or chipped to slow them down or covered with a sealer or lacquer to help them go faster? Definitely need a judicial committee. Will it be an indoor track? If outdoor it'll be subject to weather changes. I'd prefer to watch the first couple of races and see how the track's playing.

    Dont really see that Baz much as I might like to. Just have to bite the bullet on this one. Will change the shape of racing until the new season at least. Not enough fit horses to make up fields and any marginal performers will probably retire to Gavelhouse. I think we'll see growing numbers there imho. Gotta break eggs if you want to make an omelette.

    Nothing to do with the running of the race but I saw a couple of interviews with him explaining how he was handling the isolation. He mentioned trying to keep active and keep the boredom at bay. With the B word in mind he didn't seem as alert and upbeat about things as he did a fortnight before. Dont know if it had any bearing on the result. Just an observation.
