    First of all you could do him the courtesy and spell his name correctly. Secondly, the man has lost his job and you want to bitch on about what he says.

    Probably something to do with the fact that 98-99% of the horses racing at these meetings come from outside of the area. A large number come from the South Island.

    I suspect this is the flipside/strings that came with the $72mil . To get this funding this was the deal.

    Most of us on sites like this understand racing and the huge financial hole it is in, but the wider public do not. Just go on Facebook and read the comments attached to the Stuff article that has been posted detailing the $72.5 mil. This is a big problem for racing/breeding now and into the future. I suspect and in fact know that if racing disappeared the majority of New Zealanders would barely blink.

    There would be a whole lot of punters in Melbourne who would disagree re tracks. Take Caulfield for starters.

    Probably has a lot to do with how long it takes to get a thoroughbred racing fit with the closure of training tracks up to a week ago,  vs dogs etc. Many of the standardbreds have been in work on private property so will be ready to go sooner. Just my thoughts

    "Yeah Des, good morning from a beautiful Autumn morning here in Christchurch. It is about 16 degrees here and I can see the nor'west arch from my living room. Going up to 22 today Des, and rain coming tomorrow and Tuesday." 
    Always failed to mention the wind like Tony Greig on the 12th man... 
    The wind is blowing 20k's from the north-east and outta my ar$e at about 30.

    So as others have said, it was inspected and good to go a couple of weeks back. The change is due to the rain falling now? Surely if it was good to go a proviso should have been included in regards to any future significant /substantial rainfall leading up to the meeting. I smell BS.
