  1. Indeed. 7 months HD
  2. This is all still before the courts. HRNZ and the judicial authority will do nothing until this process is concluded. As much as you or I may not like the suppression of names in many cases, it is part of the judicial process and suspect always will be. I guess all will be revealed in the fullness of time.
  3. Great to hear him on SENZ on the Saturday morning racing show. His first media interview in a very long time.
  4. So it's goodbye to having a jumper racing from a South Island stable unless you are prepared to travel north. Sign of the times I guess but still hard to cop.
  5. So, have I got this right? The National meeting in August will be the only days where jumps will be happening in the South Island.
  6. Bring back Lamb. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

    I guess they might have taken it down and sent it to Rangiora where it obviously didn't arrive in time for today's meeting.
  8. Each to there own I guess. Wondered what he was up to https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/wellington/127903955/first-plumbedin-toilets-now-prefab-shower-block-appears-at-occupation-site
  9. An article from 2011 https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/aisling-officer-quits-over-police-morale/IVHL7YXXKLKDDXFSADD2FIFOKQ/
  10. Is a regular on the Saturday afternoon SENZ radio racing show.
  11. Do you want racing to continue or not? There are many who have the ear of government that would like nothing more than to shut racing down. No need for own goals to highlight the industry in a negative light.
  12. LoveRacing.NZ has no mention of her under any of the categories of jockeys not riding.
  13. Hi Mikenz. I have mixed views as I guess I still pine for the days of Radio Trackside. Would like to see them go full noise on a Saturday at least from race 1 plus Australian races from the metro courses. Not that big a fan of the punters $1000 comp as it kind of for want of a better term "highjacks" the programme at the expense of say trainer/jockey interviews and news from the tracks. Maybe have that comp 1 Saturday a month. Sam Spratt is a bit of a laugh for sure. None of what I have said is meant to be critical as the reality is that for now this is as good as we are going to get I think.
  14. On SENZ racing show Saturday afternoon they interviewed Lynsey Satherley live from the track. She made the comment that the track had been overwatered.
  15. Not sure of the final outcome for the winner (Mackenzie Lad) but that did not look good. Triumph to tragedy within a 100m .
  16. Probably more applicable to Terry Kennedy than to BJ and Shane. But point taken.
  17. They didn't go past Race 4 before the pin was pulled. Stony Creek track has some "issues"
  18. 4 months and $400. It's an interesting read. https://racingintegrityboard.org.nz/decisions/timaru-hrc-3-october-2021-r1-heard-4-december-2021-at-addington-colleen-negus/
  19. Many on council have Labour affiliation. All the city MPs + Banks Peninsula are Labour. Selwyn and Waimakariri are National. Not sure this decision is political merely a case of the organisers thinking that Level 2 is not going to change and they are going to be in a huge financial hole if they left the decision any longer. As it is this is a big loss to them financially and I guess they did not want to make it worse.. We can only wait and see what will happen to racing for the week.
  20. A and P Show in Christchurch gone for yet another year. Not looking too flash for cup week
  21. This would be the driver of the lead horse who wouldn't give up the lead??
  22. Interested to see if the stewards have anything to say in regards to the drive of Dreaminsover. In my opinion (and that's all it is) she gave that horse no chance of a dividend bearing place.
  23. There in lies the problem. Far too many are just discarded and the industry rolls on not really giving a sh.. Much more need to be done in the way of duty of care for these young and not so young people. I'm not for one moment excusing what Tom Sherry has done but he raises a very valid point.
  24. Nope, but a solid effort won't get through
