  1. MATE. Unload on him this Monday. He is returning over the 375m. Should have the race won on jump. The TAB should be having special Fixed Odds Betting for margin and time rather than 1st or 2nd. Heard he can no longer get 457 or 520 due to a heart problem, but should be too convincing over the sprint!
  2. Backed both on the same night mate... Lost it all on Silent Achiever, Saturday lol....
  3. Cheers RileyMate. I don't believe I did. Thank you for the concern also as you dead set correct!! HOWRUDE
  4. What a joke this site has become... Freedom of speech is "advertised" yet comments/posts are removed... ASBBANK, are you the useless one behind the tote? You seem to be hurt the most from my withdrawn comment. I don't know train greyhounds but I am an owner of a little team whose dogs are going well above average. I have no need to give you my identity due to you being offended by my replies. Cheers HOWRUDE
  5. I'm not too sure of the actual injury this dog sustained, but according to Brian Martin, it was a fractured hock... If this is the case, then what a training effort it has been for Bill Hodgson to get this dog back to the races and to be competing and just going under to Mr Chino in this season's edition of the Nancy Cobain. Such a remarkable achievement, I know he run 2nd, but MAN! WHAT A RUN! Congratulations!
  6. Great idea...Needs to be applied to more greyhound races in NZ.

    Know Class

    I understand he run second, read again. I was pointing out how unlucky he was and how much ground he took off White Air and Ultimate Dream, both very nice dogs. The way he raced was worthy enough of a mention. Was an absolute eye catching run.
  8. Huge loss to the sport in Shayne. A very warm, bright and cherry person. All the best with future endeavours Shayne whether they involve gardening or winning the lotto. Live a happy and fulfilling life, and one day, hope to see you at the dogs again!
  9. How good is this puppy?!!! Huge, HUGE, HUGE run today down at Forbury Park over the 520m. Was terrible out of the traps, was last approaching first bend, unwound strongly down the back straight to settle 4th-5th, run the outside around Sam I Am copping a major check and still, up against very classy dogs, managed to find his footing and fly like the good thing he is, just missing first in a close finish where only a strand of hair could separate the first 2 place getters. Well done to connections, Gary and Gaylene, you are doing a massive job and deserve every bit of success you taste! Hope it continues as for NZ breeding, this is an enormous step forward for us! Know Excitement and now this fella... ALL THE BEST!! He's all class! Cheers
  10. Never saw Know Peaces run... Expect a better run from Platinum Playboy should he contest the final. Wasn't overly fast out of the boxes, settled just off the pace racing 2nd the entire stay until the home bend when he just gave in. Should he had jumped, I think he would've finished 2nd, even the prize. Was a huge run. Good luck to the connections.
  11. Yes Jason, and many big name trainers as well! Good to see. No action will take place unless "action has taken place" if you understand that... I mean, nobody will do anything about it until these big name trainers make a move, where they have in withdrawing their puppies from the race. Good on them I say!
  12. Like I said above, If Aaron Cross was to see this, he would be having the time of his life!!! Writing up blogs, articles for some newspaper even appearances on Campbell Live.. If nothing can be done, simply, can racing down there!!! NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!
  13. Why hasn't this issue been RESOLVED!?
  14. An ongoing issue! Badja Bale copped the worst of it, didn't look too happy jumping back over the fence... Cross is going to have a blast! Hope Badja Bale is alright!!! As a punter, I am pissed off, but as a trainer, I am outraged!! Faulty tracks causing injuries. Why hasn't this issue been? It almost seems like the lure breaks down every meeting...
  15. No doubt! Funny stuff. And they want this man to retire? lol. Good call Trev, Good call
  16. Mate, not just them. If the dog is unsound and injured, do they race them? Anything can happen you dickhead. Im not getting defensive for Team McInerny but for every trainer who has had a late scratching. Just because it happens often, doesn't mean it happens on purpose. You only notice it from them because they have plenty of dogs, and with plenty of dogs comes plenty of reserves. Grow Up idiot. If you have trained a greyhound yourself, maybe you would better understand.
  17. Dave McCauley and Dennis Symes. Champion commentators given the opportunity.
  18. Steve Davis, IMO, is an asset to our industry. Monday race days, before they run gallop meetings, was just him, BM and a special guest. Was bringing more attention to us. He may not know much about greyhound racing but he does know plenty about racing in general! He is very humorous and has such a great character. We are all to our own opinions, and in mine, He's better to watch than Bevan Sweeney or Aidan Rodley on a Wednesday... mine the spelling mistakes if there were any...
  19. Mate, you're an idiot!! With the amount of dogs they take to the track, is it not possible for a couple, out of "x" amount of runners, to be injured prior to race day. I know it is trainer responsibility to prepare their dogs in the healthiest and soundest of manners. It reads like you are trying to impose that they are race rigging to suit themselves. If this is the case mate, you need to be checked by your local Mental specialist. Out of all the runners they produce to the track for race day, it is possible, after all, we are all only human, to have things NOT go our way, by the means of injuries or so on. Could've slipped the collar before entering the vehicle, couldve hurt itself in the kennel on the way to the track... Like winners, there are no certainties!!
  20. Honest opinion. As a fella in general, complete gentleman. Nice bloke, not a bad word about him. As a commentator, well...Hurts the ears. I know it's not easy and to fill in for a fella like BM is hard but surely. As a caller, hes one toned, boring! "Haters are going to hate" LOL
  21. Hmmmmmmmm...............wanted off the rail
  22. Mate, down in the lower grades, she was looking superb. 12L, 9L. As she got higher in class, times have gone from 29.72, margin of 13L ("") to now, 30.39 3/4L. She isn't as flash as she was down in class, still a good bitch, do not get me wrong. To make a call like that where dogs like Freddy John are proven at C5, windburn? LOL. She can be a bit tardy on the jump but the acceleration she shows to the first bend is incredible, but in a race of C5s where 90% of the field are brilliant out of the traps and can run time, she'll need to improve her box manners. Still though, she is a nice bitch, nothign against her, would love to have 2 of her my kennels anyway!
  23. Chance? So it doesnt come down to ability at all?.... Another Gale, Hifi Allegro, the great Little Mother. Race after race they would salute and yet our sport is based on chance? You should be a comedian... I have a couple of dogs that if put in the same race as the above, and the above had fallen over, we still we get beaten by the above. They simply have no chance.
  24. G'day mate. Not sure of the meeting but i remember the first 5 legs of the pick6 being won by number 1.
