  1. An article said that the NRL players are in for an 87% pay cut, in the Warriors case, that would be based on performance as they only look of any use for 13% of a game

    Takes a head wind and a tail wind to do a lap

    Well put and you hit the nail on the head, but, what are the changes needed. Owners of lesser horses are going down faster than Mums pants on fathers day

    Why not try running mile races with smaller fields and $5000 stake, the horses race weekly then and we are short of horses running now. 2600 gut busters at Addington takes two weeks before you return and you need to run a place twice just to break even with the bills in a month, Do the people in charge really know what is going on, I think not, this is a costly sport for the owner and breeder. I have two very well bred foals not even broken in yet, one by Hes Watching and they might as well be hacks, another owner breeder with very little hope for the future, by the way, both foals are stunners.

    The n

    The legals are loving this, $$$$$, The riu are claiming expenses to buy the eggs to smash on their face, the only problem is that those accused have now been bled dry and cannot afford a law suit for costs

    Grass Tracks - Well said Doug Gale

    Grass track racing brings the horses closer to the crowd, an all weather track inside a grass track does not work that well. Look at the TAB turnover at the grass tracks in the south Island, they are huge, the fans love the action in front of them close up. Many clubs are being hard pressed to make a decent stake now which is killing this sport. Stakes are going down, costs are going up if you own the horse. Kumara races again has the X factor, the horses, the crowd and the fun, they can do it, why not harness . Because all the status Quo cannot think out of the square or cannot miss out on the free drinks and crayfish on offer. I made a suggestion many moons ago the we should start on mile racing with eight horse fields and twelve race programs, get the young ones interested with quick action, Fast ten has taken that to a point and it worked and as a horse owner, you can race next week, 2600 gut busters at addington, takes two weeks to return. Look at Aussie, Look at the states, the horses turn up week after week after running miles and get a part of the stake, Times need to change and the sport needs thinkers, promoters and those with a vision, not just seat warmers

    Dexter named Driver of Year by USHRA

    Dexter is a class act, he has a great feel for the horse in front of him and they run for him. He is to be admired for taking a chance and doing it at his best.

    All Stars slugfest

    Purdons have been good trainers but Nats arrival made them better and she has a very basic approach to training horses, ask her and she will tell you, its no secret to her.

    1700m Races

    With both these top horses in your team and both are very good, you play to get the best result and handing up for a cart to the line was good thinking. Just missed though, the winner is going great so why would you park him and kill your own chance

    Tote Place Divs.

    Down at the local pub, saw a fine looking horse at Albion Park paying nearly 9 dollars a win, 5 ew was the bet. race started and went to the front with 8.80 beside his name. one lap later. it went down to 2.80, horse won and paid 2.60 and 1.20, ripped of I feel but thats our TAB, last bet I had and that was 9 months ago
