    Multi tasking throughbreds

    Thanks for refreshing my memory Gubes - I thought Crash had won on him and knew Dan had won a couple. Saw Dan last October and had a chat - he was looking very well.

  13. I have just checked with the International Cricket Council and if the teams are still tied at the end of the 'super over' - the winning team shall be the one whose horses dropped the most poo's in the birdcage.

    Errol Skelton

    Errol always had time to stop for a chat whenever we met at the races. One of his apprentices - Gregor Robson rode a couple of winners for us way back early nineties. RIP

    Betting or Collecting $1,000... Info from TAB.

    reminds me of our younger days - used to send Rolly in to the bottle store to get a dozen when we were under age - always got kicked out because he asked for a dozen 'brown lions' !

    Philosophical Question

    The answer is simple - go back to the old days and have only 3 grades (get rid of the rating system) Maiden Intermediate Open and have a sprint and middle distance for each grade every race day sprints could be either 1200m or 1400m middle distance anything from 1600m to 2400m with a bit of thought (what is that?) programmes could be worked to cater for every horse
  19. Told Mrs. vS todays comp is menage a trois - she hasn't been seen since so here goes for vS R 1 - 3 & 4 R 2 - 1 & 3 R 3 - 3 & 4 BB R 4 - 2 & 4 R 5 - 1 & 5 R 6 - 2 & 5 R 7 - 5 & 8 BB R 8 9 & 12 R 9 - 9 & 11 R 10 - 4 & 7 cheers Maria

    John Allen please explain....

    I would have thought that is more the job of NZTR rather than RITA formerly NZRB (aka the TAB )
