  1. Just don’t fucking enter if you don’t like the rules.....see how much that gets you. Some people....
  2. You would think four years of lies, conspiracy theories and general bullshit would be enough for anyone eh Idol....? Apparently not.....
  3. And here is the other demented fuckwit....the fairy story gobbler......
  4. It cost you nothing to enter did it....why should we expect prizes to be put up without contributing in some way...?? Seems reasonable to me.....for winners to give a bit back for future comps.....otherwise there might not be any......
  5. And the bullshit continues for the gullible..... https://edition.cnn.com/2021/03/01/politics/donald-trump-cpac-speech/index.html
  6. Ironic coming from the biggest fraud on here.... As for making a fool of yourself, that ship has well and truly sailed......spent all those landslide victory winnings yet fruitcake.....?? Some people never learn......mental midgets.....
  7. Finished you would think.... https://www.bbc.com/sport/horse-racing/56246444
  8. What would you know ? Been dumb and blind for four years and nothing has changed. Still a moron.
  9. Totally agree Trumpy. Leigh spends an awful lot of time, effort and money to provide this site for the enjoyment of us all....you have to ask, where would we be without it ? On top of that, the comps are great fun to participate in, but there is a further cost. You don’t get anything for nothing these days. An entry fee would help bump up the kitty and make the prizes even more attractive....over 50 entrants in the last comp so not hard to see how the pot could grow pretty quickly... The Pick Seven comp in Oz is very popular ( if bloody impossible to win !! ) so something simi
  10. Definitely. Some thought also needs to be given to an entry fee for the bigger Carnival Comps in NZ and Oz.
  11. There will be another one at 3pm today......

  13. The important part was the last two paras....but syndicating 45 horses so quickly shows people want to be involved. The record certainly helps.
  14. Dave Ellis is feeling positive anyway...... Te Akau is in the last throes of syndicating 45 yearlings and Ellis is buoyed by the appetite for horses and positivity around racing, while also recognising recent success such as a fifth-successive win in the Karaka Million and Probabeel's dominant G1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) victory are driving new interest. "It is going absolutely enormous and we never dreamed that we would almost have sold everything this quickly," he said. "It is quite incredible the volume of new owners coming on board and the interest. We have only got a few s
  15. Very true Trumpy. You have the economy of scale in your favour of course, and multiple States that may have quite different views and perceptions of the Racing Industry than the Government does.We don’t have that luxury unfortunately, and I doubt any recent Government here has fully understood the value of the NZ Industry, or if they have, only paid lip service to it without making any meaningful long term contribution to its continued success. You could argue the recent Winston/Messara combo has at least made a step in the right direction.....whether that improves things in the future we’ll h
