    TAB and virtual races

    last year in England I went into a few betting shops - amazing how many people in the shops are betting on electronic roulette and virtual racing.......

    RIP Paul Costigan

    RIP and kind thoughts to family. A great racing character - a few top blokes from the Riccarton/SI scene lost in last 12 months

    heck of a character on the box and off it - something racing does have in spades.

    looked pretty straightforward to me. Wasn't a double figure winner

    Not hard to post more than NZ Post so not sure if that is a criticism or not ;-) Not sure I said he is cutting edge - but he says what he thinks more often than not, analyses a race and says how he sees it panning out, and some of his Informant articles were top notch. Each to their own.

    Thanks gents - I don't see enough racing there so bow to your greater knowledge.

    He is talented - knows what he is talking about and is prepared to go out on a limb with an opinion. Unfortunately there are always people who will choose not to like a character, or discount a person's ability because they think they are a bit flash or posh or have $ or whatever. Human nature.

    I didn't mate. Turned over a reasonable amount overnight and ended up $7.40 down after a bit of a plunge on a $6 place shot who crept into third in the last Once again a great nights racing - not totally convinced on some of the jockeys over there, but as a few ex jocks on here would say I'm a typical punter. Having said that the strangest ride was James Doyle on Sinjaari in the King George. I didn't back it - but wtf ???

    was a great evening's entertainment - so well done to TAB for coverage and for taking fixed odds bets. Had a crack at a few - 16/1 shot nosed out, and bet of the day not good enough and ran second as well. But I'll be back in tonight !

    Mrs Cubes gets grumpy with the TAB

    Knowing Cubes and what he has done for the industry and other good causes they should pay out his losing tickets too :-) Way of the world of course Ohoka that the rules can be relaxed or bent or ignored depending on the customer etc etc etc. Nonetheless I agree with you that the 6 month rule is dumb.

    Mrs Cubes gets grumpy with the TAB

    is there any rational reason for an expiry date on tickets for TAB ? I appreciate it is a liability on balance sheet etc, but they took bet and factored it into tote odds/FO margins....

    My radical plan to fix NZ racing

    The weird thing is most of those couldn't do much harm compared to what we have. The jockey thing would need a $2,000 fine for every ride they butcher though.

    Well said Tasman Nigel certainly loves the game and puts in the hard yards - as does Belinda.

    I get the point but having a crack at the industry down here gets us nowhere .... I could just as easily point out problems up North
