    Avantage Syndicate & Veitch Share??

    Pick up any metro Aussie form book and 70% of starters are heavily syndicated with many having 30 plus owners Aussie woke up to the spin off on syndications 10 years ago - and their racing is booming

    Probably lacking a bit of confidence Dave, don't sack her yet

    Nearco, in my view the best judge of pace in the South Island - top lady and very good rider

    The Savvy horse is extra - is good enough to win this or run second to the toppy

    Please be nice

    Message to Bernard ... Give Leo a call and have a discussion, I am sure Leo would welcome giving you his thoughts and from the outside looking in, I think Leo's thoughts are valid and should be listened to. We all have skin in the game and are looking for an even playing field - not a big ask surely. Thanks Bernard.

    just watched them half a dozen times - very average, in fact poor... You have good reason to feel passed off, she is of course much better than that particularly when in front - great pace judge - and a lovely lady too

    Dave outside of Riccarton it is a raffle - the standard of riding us very average and the results truely are raffle territory - best left alone in my view

    Winstons big announcement...

    Don't think throwing money "at it" is the answer as the base issue of poor out of control management will continue - irony is it would be a lifeline. Trump has it covered - sort out the costs over a short period - give them 2 months to present the plan with minimum cost savings of 20% then the Board has to manage and monitor hard and deal firmly with non performance - it is (was) a business - let's fold in basic business tools - targets and performance with positive and negative responses All very simple
  12. Hesi, he won the Pegasus, was well weighted, a team of Wellington Owners and was looking for a good track - all stars aligned I would have thought, but maybe managing expectations was the issue, after all it let out at 70's, wasn't in my first four, but I had him in my first 6 compliments of the Pegasus
  13. Thanks Hesi, knew he was having a great year and so deserved - imagine our South Island racing without Pitty and he can foot it with the big ones with, all due respect, second tier animals - and the CJC didn't need him on board - go figure that
  14. Great placing and planning Pitty and that is why you are the total professional you are - and what a year you are having, I suspect you are over the "mil" already - Go Champ ......

    There were two high weights - the opener at Trentham and the 7th at Ashurst - the boys weighed in at Trentham the drove up for their second ride - doubt if they would do it today - just not the high weight rider s like back there then

    Smart Patch

    I hope they did land the plunge - it has nothing to do with us - you know the odds beat them

    Smart Patch

    Dock Leaf, we all know the odds - beating them is the game - frankly if you rely on Trackside interviews you are in big trouble. I had the horse in my first three - but had a question over him - proven wrong but not the first time and won't be the last Good luck to them they landed a plunge - well done
