    The odds were crazy for a horse with question marks over his wet track ability. He's very good but his unpredictable style makes it hard to back him with any confidence.

    The difference is there is NOT only one petrol company in NZ. The government allows competition. Imagine if the TAB had competition, onshore that is.

    analogy - imagine if there was only 1 petrol company in NZ. If that petrol company continually supplied crap petrol as in contaminated with water, the customers would kick up merry hell and the Government would do something about it. What is the difference with that and the NZ TAB/NZRB ?

    on Monday morning, John Allen and the senior management team will have a meeting. After reading this thread they will say that about a dozen customers were not happy with our effort on Saturday. That is a very small minority of our 650,000 or so customers so we are doing a pretty good job - pats on back all round

    The NZRB formed their own trust so that they could administer the funds from gaming. That is one part of their business model that is actually growing, and they have invested in more sites, and have upgraded existing ones. What probably is in question is the costs involved in getting those funds that they return to the community, as by law, they have to return a %.

    True and I don't think it really matters. Government doesn't generally give handouts to industries that may be struggling from time to time. I wasn't there but it sounds like Peters has basically said that racing needs to sort out its own s%^t, the same thing Carter told it 10 years ago after Peters  previous wasted largesse had ended or gone into place.. So, I think participants and leadership need to focus on doing that instead of hanging out waiting for some additional handout from outside the industry to rescue them.

    Here's an example of innovation and ideas Winnie the Poo. Put a blow torch to NZRB/NZTR . Many say that the organisation has overseen the complete deterioration of the NZ Racing landscape. Take Breeders and Sales out and only sellers have had a return. The games stuffed in NZ and all he comes up with, despite all the "Policy Rubbish" of MZ First, is "Racing has to be innovative and have more ideas!". Did he say this "before" he entered the Pencarrow Marque or after lunch and a few Sav Blancs? He's had months in Office and had the perfect chance and audience to announce what he and his "Govt by Stealth" were going to do over the next 12 months. Or, should I say he did announce what they were going to do? SFA. Nothing. Plenty of room in Oz for the progressive young trainers and stable staff of NZ Racing. Follow the exodus.
