    I live about 2km from the track and it is absolutely hosing down and showing no signs of easing up. A postponement has to be an option they are looking at

    True Story...almost.

    C'mon CBT it is quite clear that Sunline never went through the sales ring. A cursory check on my part found this out very quickly and I wouldn't doubt Ted's info for a moment. The breeders offered her to Trevor McKee. Perhaps your friend is confusing Sunline with another horse.

    Stay Strong Christchurch

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I backed a different runner in the last election race but have to totally agree with you re Jacinda Ardern. She has been very strong in the face of an unprecedented event in this country's history.

    Stay Strong Christchurch

    Hi Racecafe folk. Just to say thanks for the many kind thoughts expressed to the people of Christchurch. Personally and as a family it hit hard as I am a teacher at the school that lost 2 current students and 1 ex student. Other students lost family members. Today was very tough but we got through with the love and support of those around us.. My wife is a nurse at Christchurch Public and was on duty when the victims were coming in. She went on duty just after 2.00pm as did many others and I picked her up at 12.20am Saturday morning totally shattered. I know people can and do make comments about what the PM was wearing, should the Crusaders change their name etc all fair enough but for many that is so trivial right now as we just cope with all the mixture of emotions we have. Again thanks and tomorrow is a new day and we will push on just like we did in 2011

    You are right. This has gone on forever. Some 35 plus years ago I would regularly place bets for a Harness Racing Patrol Steward when there was a local meeting. Location will not be revealed. I'm certain it still goes on to this day

    Weir waves the white flag

    Thanks for that Charlie, got the wrong end of the info. In saying that this could only happen in QLD. They always have been a law unto themselves (ask Hec Anderton ) for a very long time, a bit like WA

    Weir waves the white flag

    I see the stewards have banned him from starting his 3 horses at Doomben today. This has been coming for a while in regards to this guy

    New FOB and Shutdown

    Looking at some of the win/place pools it would seem there is no co-mingling re Muswellbrook as an example

    New FOB and Shutdown

    Was just sorting out a few horses for Happy Valley tonight and could only bet Race 1 with the rest of the meeting "abandoned" In other words we need to shut down early to go sort the new system. Stuff me, I was pissed off with no Hong Kong on Sunday and now they have done it again

    New FOB and Shutdown

    So, just to really piss the punter off the TAB decides to show Singapore and Hong Kong but no betting. Yes I know I could have an account in Aust but I do not and will not. Nothing more annoying than watching horses you had your hard earned on at a previous start or two rolling into the money. Jolly Banner and I am totally spewing

    te aroha bias

    I will throw my two cents worth in here and say that this track has a long history of horses that are in front or thereabouts on the turn are still there at the finish. I know that it is a long run in (400m?) but there is just something about that track and front-runners.
  21. Probably not a bother to too many punters but there will only be 10 runners in this race. No. 12 needs another scratching before it gets a start and is currently 2nd fav at 2.30 ff
  22. OUCH! Feel the burn. Haven't seen the race as yet but note not in the first 4. Confession time. I backed the stablemate (winner) at 8.50 ff

    This is one of the tracks that Messara wants to keep open, which has me completely at a loss. There always seems to be an issue down that way re horse numbers at meetings be it Kurow/Waikouaiti/Omakau at this time of the year and one of them misses out. With Timaru today and all the other meetings including the coast circuit coming up I just don't think there is the horse population to support so many meetings and probably has not been for a long time. Just an opinion.
