    Turny reacted to Shad in Tom Woods wins Award   
    Lets face it, he will go a lot further over there than he ever wood have here, and obviously appreciated, hence the award he won , probably better pay, good on him, definitely made the right decision. Another talent to leave our shores.

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

    And the trainers comments can skew the odds.
    And why have interviews if it has nothing to do with us?
    Steering punters away from a winner is bad for the game, but who cares it's almost fcked anyway.

    Turny reacted to TOM(the other Molloy) in Hokitika Gone   
    Just give me an example of an inconsistency at Reefton Admin.  Hokitika Greymouth and Kumara all suffer from it because they have all been dug up and 'renovated' but you are talking shit about Reefton.  Sure if it gets wet they come down the outside as they do at every NZ track but to suggest inconsistency is fairyland stuff.  It is the best surface on the Coast(probably in the South Island) by a street but is simply too small so has a limited life.
    Every track in NZ that has been 'renovated' has been cocked up without exception and 99% of the abandonments relate to renovated tracks.

    What's this "One eyed..." Accusation? The truth often hurts and that's why NZ racing is stuffed. Every NZ trainer, owner and breeder I run into, comments the same. "Racing" in NZ is stuffed.

    Turny reacted to MalcolmH in Surely it is time!!   
    I can't help thinking that it must be time for the Minister of Racing to order a Commission into New Zealand Racing as a whole. not just one code but all codes. There is just so much going on and wrong over all codes that some-one has to have the balls and order a complete and major investigation and overhaul. All industry participants are hurting except those in corporate offices who get paid regardless! As an owner I wonder where it is all heading and to be honest it makes me think why do I bother so come on Winnie you like the lime light time so to front up for the good of an industry and a country.

    Turny reacted to We're Doomed in I thought racing was on a roll   
    I too thought you were advocating fewer tracks and fewer meetings. But regardless of that, I don't actually agree that there are too few horses for the current programme, there are still plenty of horses out there. Tauranga could have split one race into three fields. It is largely down to incompetent programming. In the SI for instance there is no 2yo race during the entire wider holiday period. So that is one type of horse eliminated totally. There is only one 3yo race, and that is over 1,200m. Believe it or not there is only one racemeeting with feature type stakes in the SI for 5 weeks, so anyone with a decent rating 65, 70, 75 etc who wants to keep them for better stakes can only race once. 
    And wait for this one; there is no racemeeting with feature stakes anywhere in Canty between 18 Nov and 27 Jan, 11 WEEKS, so all Canty horses can do is largely travel to race for industry meeting level stakes.
    So there are horses out there, but they are not being utilised properly. There is no pattern to our racing and no imagination. With everything now being centrally run and funded the clubs have largely stopped bothering with anything innovative. Programming 7 and 8 races doesn't help, and it means half of the horses aren't racing in their proper class or over their preferred distance, which makes sensible punting vitually impossible. There is no incentive for clubs to gain sponsorship as everyone just runs for the same stakes levels, and trainers don't even notice a club that might have added $2,000 extra to a stake for a certain race, they just have to race when they happen to find a race for the right class and distance.
    Largely it is down to incompetence and has nothing to do with money or anything else.
