  1. Watching the horses in parade ring or prelims on Trackside 1 and scrolling across the bottom of screen are numbers and names of horses from Santa Anita screening on Trackside 2. ffS if we wanted to see those names we would switch to Trackside 2 when watching NZ races on Trackside 1 we want to see the names and numbers of the horses that are on screen !

  10. TAB to cut 30% of it's staff! well we all know from past experience that the TAB is not that flash with it's arithmetic eg- bonus bets stuff up and their annual reporting figures (as us good guys say "smoke and mirrors") so what they are probably going to do is cut their 700+ employees by 30
  11. Just imagine if the 'oldies' in the rest homes decided to have a 'knees up' ! .... Would have to invent a level 5 !
  12. I have just been reading that covid 19 has some strange effects on people -covid toes etc

  14. no wonder I had a bad nights sleep! My original thoughts echo what you say - so am I correct in thinking that if they are Govt. appointments then the Govt does own the TAB/Rita? In that case how can it be insolvent or near to?
  15. Thank you for the reply - I shall sleep better tonight
  16. My question was leading to - if not the Government, why do the Government appoint the CEO and Chair of the board?
  17. maybe it was a toss up between the 2 Johns - Allen and Fokerd !
  18. the truth is - he was attracted to this role because he got the DCM from his last role !
  19. think of it another way W D ... they have been successful alright ( in their own way ) - they think the racing participants are thick so will come in and take as much of their $$$ as they can get and then get out!
