  1. Decent analysis - hard to see a queue of trainers wanting extra boxes in the current environment ? And if there were presumably a landlord would negotiate with the existing tenant and saying there is demand - the price is going up etc etc and have a commercial negotiation. The fact they aren't doing that leads you to conclude that either there has been some bust up in the background here, or they want to do something else with the land ?? Can anyone comment on whether or not the area where these stables are could be subdivided off the racecourse ??
  2. Was a great catch up as always Cubes. A really fun day and well done Riccarton for putting on the event. The $5k prize pool is pretty decent these days , and as you say the food and drink package was good.
  3. When you say heads should roll - are you thinking people sacked ? Or what level of penalty ? And who ? Not condoning what happened - but it was picked up pre race. Yes penalise the trainer - but am I alone in thinking it wasn't the end of the world ?
  4. I've messaged Scooby too re my bet from a couple of weeks ago. $150 EW Pahi Lass R1 Ellerslie.

  6. was it police plants throwing faeces, abusing passing schoolkids, putting graffiti on war memorials, driving a car towards the police etc etc etc ?

  8. Each to their own - Reon put a lot into the industry and was by my reckoning one of the greats to listen to. As I've matured I prefer not to put the boot in unless someone is a criminal or dickhead - but maybe that's just me
  9. Firstly- good luck with the bet. Secondly - what do you expect her to pay on the day ? When I bet pre race day I only do so if I think the odds will be way less on the day - bearing in mind the intangibles around weather and draw and horse having a slight issue etc etc etc ...
  10. Reon was the best of the lot. Voice and delivery - outstanding. And to balance your comment re finishes - did you ever get to the old box at Addington and see where he called from ? The man was a genius.
  11. Cheers Tasman My only system is too many years of watching races and studying form .... end of day I got lucky with best bet race too. Kind of like real gambling when selecting the horses is half the battle - how you bet on them is equally important. Next one I will run last no doubt
  12. Well apart from Champions League, and World Champions Ohoka Many thanks Scooby and Say No More... great competition. I got a bit lucky no doubt. Hope I can generate some cash for Racecafe from the bet. Cheers Col
  13. Actually I take it back - you are a comic genius - keep em coming
  14. Yep. Tiring listening to "experts" banging on about it on every thread !
