    Not taking sides here, but have you made direct contact with Graeme?. If not you could try that first before going any further on Racecafe. Just a suggestion.

    Forget NZ TAB when it comes to Hong Kong. Go straight to the HKJC website and you will get most of what you are looking for.

    kdt got a reaction from Patiti in TAB website down for maintenance   
    Was trying to get a bet on at Tauranga and system kept saying error, bet unsuccessful etc etc. hit accept a few times still unsuccessful. The laugh is that despite all this,  the bet is now on. So one of my click accept must have worked, go figure.

    HI Baz - I ended up placing the same bet multiple times. Tried to cash out but no option. Rang and sat on the phone for 25 minutes waiting then the Chiefs game kicked off. 
    Jaguares score so I quietly hung up. Bet won. :-)

    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

    Today we lost one of the good guys with the passing of RJ Dick Bothwell,who died peacefully surrounded by friends and family.
    I was proud to call him a friend, one of best trainers or horsemen I ever worked for, he taught me so much about riding ,training and later owning horses. I never saw him in the 30 odd years I knew him ever lose his temper in any situation.Most of the success I had as an owner was with the Bothwell stable training some of my best horses to win many group races... which we always celebrated long into the night the way it should be done.
    Dick was never one to chase owners he always let the results on the track speak for themselves, and over the years he had many top horses go through his care.
    Dick was supported throughout 49 years of married his life by his loving wife, my second Mum...Jill, Jilly, or Mummy depending on who you were but one thing was always for sure in the Bothwell house, you were welcome, the food was always fantastic, and we all would enjoy a drink or two to celebrate our many winners together. Jilly was his rock and was behind him in everything he ever did.
    Dick is survived by Jill and their three children Bones, Burt and Dale and two grandchildren.
    I will never forget what you or your family did for me and the many memories you gave me over the years,RIP my friend, go join the other great trainers in the sky...till we meet again someday...Leigh

    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

    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.
