    All jockeys go through lean times.
    It's easy to be critical while 'talking through your pocket'.
    Kylie has ridden a number of winners for me and will doubtless do so again. I hope she rides our horse when it next races.
    She's a good rider, a good judge of pace, an articulate woman and has my admiration and confidence.

    Are you serious? Drew the outside gate down the chute? How much extra ground would it have covered? 
    And I backed it! 
    As for Hands Down, you need to get off the juice, bud. Kylie doesn't live anywhere near Ohoka and the comment about Batesy is ridiculous.

    Exactly. There is no doubt that providing fair consistent surfaces for racing is ONE critical ingredient of the handful of strategies required to build betting revenue. However, ALL are required for that to happen. I won't bother repeating the others for the umpteenth time in the last 7 years or so. Apparently there is "no appetite" for some of those.
    This is one instance where "no appetite" will continue to leave stakeholders hungrier and hungrier. A couple of Strathayrs, even if gifted by some generous soul or souls (hopefully that's not us taxpayers again) won't change that.

    You want to look at the videos mate....Dowry Duty wasn't one for starters...
    She showed absolutely no vigour on any of them, apart from the last 100 on Sunshine Girl. And two were favourites...

    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

    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.

    You couldn't do that down South.  You would have so many sitting on the sidelines there wouldn't be hardly any left to do any riding.

    Might be simple but they need to find $20mil a year for starters there to cover what they are currently borrowing to cover the advance stake funding.

    Turny reacted to uneasy in To race for a Million bucks or 22.5 grand...?   
    No one said they didn't want to take Enzo's Lad to Wgtn rather concerns about the track were discussed EL was booked to travel a week before the race and Sam was booked before the fields were framed. As the trainer and part owner I can assure you it was on the radar before NZ Cup Week that was why we did not run in the stewards being mindful he would have to carry more weight for a Group3 win than a listed win. The result was very satisfying and rewarding Thank you

    What is wrong with you morons ?
    What the hell has National got to do with it ??
    We just need the Racing Industry going forward and not stagnating. If Peters can do that, then kudos to him.

    10 years ago maybe but right now she is clearly a better jockey.  Over the past 2-3 seasons combined she has a better strike-rate than him and that is despite riding in a much higher proportion of proper races.

    What? Jockey upgrade??? If it were P D Johnson on board tomorrow you might say a comparable pilot to the legend but I suspect it is you overdoing the Friday night drinks.
    Having said that Chris has got off so a major minus to the horse's chances. Danielle is clearly a very talented girl but jockey upgrade?????
    Ya right are ya?
