    Micky and Blair Show

    Love it Blue, and yes we can have a trainer winning a higher percentage of races for their owners. Everyone's a winner with the Mickey.Blair show, the club especially. I suspect the longevity of a few horses is also an added bonus

    Won 6 of the 8 race card at Manawatu last night. A big improvement on Tuesday's effort where they won only half the 8 race card That has to be some sort of record.
  3. I knew someone would pick up the very point you made, well done you Feds vrs State. I can see the NZ Messiah version now, the Auckland city council offering minimum stake of 25K for Ellerslie only for Wellington council trumping it with 30K
  4. They are getting run over by NSW in the stakes race and are finally fighting back courtesy of the Labour government of Victoria
  5. Victorian racing will enjoy a $40 million prizemoney boost from January 1 after last month’s state election. The Andrews government promised $33 million for higher prizemoney if re-elected before voters returned the Labor team for another term last month. A Racing Victoria cash injection will mean the industry will offer $40 million more in stakes across the next two years. Racing Victoria announced a sample of the new prizemoney package in October but unveiled the new prizemoney structure on Wednesday. Victorian TAB races will carry a minimum of $22,000 in stakes from January 1. Below is the new prizemoney structure for Victorian racing. New minimum prizemoney per race Country TAB - Standard $22,000 (up from $20,000) Country TAB - Premium $35,000 (up from $25,000 to $30,000) Country TAB - Night $35,000 (up from $20,000 to $30,000) Metropolitan – Midweek $50,000 (up from $30,000 to $40,000) Metropolitan – Public Holiday $60,000 (up from $40,000) Metropolitan – Saturday standard $125,000 (up from $100,000) Metropolitan – Saturday 3YO races and staying races (2000m+) $135,000 (up from $120,000) Metropolitan – Saturday pathway races $75,000 (up from $60,000) Metropolitan – Saturday Listed races $140,000 (up from $120,000) Metropolitan – Saturday Group III races $160,000 (up from $150,000) “The increases announced today ensure that the minimum prizemoney for every category of Victorian race is the equal of anywhere in the nation,” RV chief executive Giles Thompson. “They also ensure that Victoria remains the destination to race a stayer or a three-year-old with Saturday metropolitan minimums rising to a record $135,000 for these races. “As we’ve stated previously, a vibrant and successful thoroughbred racing industry is great for Victoria and enhancing returns to our owners, trainers, jockeys and breeders, particularly at the grass roots, is crucial to that.”

    Your welcome and i enjoyed the non confrontational banter but the matter is not closed nor ever will be.Its just one of those topics that seem to divide those interested in the sport

    Im agreeing with you 100%. I know of at least one whose weekly turnover was in the thousands who has not had a bet since Inca arrived.
  14. Congrats to you Trump, one of the better posts on here for quite some time on this topic

    A redistribution of money is basically what Socialism is.The idea of dropping the top stakes and putting it into lower grade races is a recipe for even more of the best to be exported and a race to the bottom IMHO The industry has survived for decades and will continue to do so. Look at the fields for Winton and Rangiora in the weekend. Auckland and Addington offer more money for those that aspire to try and win more money..
