    Thank your lucky stars

    I am in lockdown with Pound for Pound, a fantastic novel by FX Toole. Counting my blessings.

    Inglis Easter Sales brought Forward

    If the lockdown lasts for two months (assuming 90 - 95% compliance), then I would expect racing in August, assuming NZTR is still solvent.

    Wexford Stables

    Most logical step. Te Akau very quite, but must be considering similar move.
  4. Berri, if the teachers pay is so ridiculous, how come there are so many teacher vacancies?

    Level 3, Level4. What do they mean Jacinda? Where is the detail? At what stage will schools and gyms etc close? How many respirators or negative pressure rooms do we have? I know more about Germany or the UK than I do NZ. Say you are giving clarity when there is stuff all clarity at all is piss useless. I think the government is making it up as they go along.

    NZTR Coronavirus Regulations

    Stables, NZTR have made the only possible decision. In the short term it may keep racing going. UK racing is gone. We need to hope that community transmission is delayed because that may spell the end.

    Corona Virus Impact on Racing

    Red Rum. Who is going to watch racing if a significant portion of people cancel their SKY subscription?

    Corona Virus Impact on Racing

    In the short term anyway the biggest impact on racing will be: a. Many people will have less disposable income and most will see a reduction in their wealth. Betting turnover will plummet. b. The TAB will see their income from sports betting disappear. c. People will cancel SKY subscriptions and will not be able to see raing live. This will also impact on turnover. d. Stakes will be drastically cut in 2020/2021 season, if not before.

    Lot 38 Turn me loose - Lady Kipling passed in for $450,000????

    Ponderosa8, GST gets added to the sale price. Buyers of horses being exported would not pay GST. The breeder of a horse would pay tax on the profit only (if any). Cheers Tony
