    Does nobody find it ironic that people seem to be keen to have maidens race for $1,500 more than horses with numerous wins, but at the same time everyone complains about a handicapping system that doesn't move horses through the grades? Perhaps one idea might be to introduce a stakes structure that sees  races for higher classes of horses run for higher stakes to incentivise them.

    I think it’s good if they have it once a month mix it up abit so it’s not the same old boring stuff week in week out

    So  Does that apply to my earlier comments about  harness racing in the south island being the most honest it ever has been?
    Does it apply to when I have commented on another forum that two of those involved are the top 2 drivers that punters have the most faith in, as far as getting results and always giving thier horses everyone opportunity to win. 
    The problem with operatio inca is there is no context,it doesn't look at the big picture. It is unforgiving in that it can isolate actions, inaccurately reflecting  the overall honesty of those involved.
      But that in no way excuses  actions which  undermine the confidence of very people you need for the industry to survive(the punter) . That's why I support what operation inca stands for.

    Who would want to come north for the chance to driver maybe once a week at best with small feilds and not many meetings there’s not real incentive for any South Island junior to move

    The Big D is back this Friday night at Alex Park. Been a while coming. Knew how to launch one back in the day, only thing he has been launching of late is the golf ball out of bounds off the tee. Must say he is looking fit as fiddle as well, has dropped a fair few kegs since he last graced the track.

    You blokes bagging RIU and Police are like the burglar who gets his car stolen. Hate them looking at you but are the first to call them when you feel hard done by.  You’d be having a fit if they weren’t in the sport.
    They are necessary to the sport full stop. They not perfect but who is ?  
    And stating they are delaying is misleading from the mail I’m getting. I hear they locked and loaded and it’s the defence asking for time. Imagine that ?
    And what’s this “physical” intimidation you refer to ??  Plenty of avenues to make complaints about that if you need to. Police are harder on themselves than anyone.
    If accused are innocent - and for sports sake I hope they are - they will have a heap of options of recourse against Police and RIU. Enough said.

    Good point of view clearly from a jockey  tho as in harness racing generally when it’s a slow paced if your on one of the favourites you do make a mid race move. Standardbreds aren’t as one dimensional as the thoroughbred so can easily switch to plan b or c if the driver wants to

    Kind of come hand in hand doesn’t it? If there’s such a level of incompetence buy those supposedly informing and trying to keep integrity in the game  is such common knowledge then surely the dishonest ones gather they can get away with more and more so they push the boundaries as much and as often as then can until  in this case they get investigated ?

    You actually make a good point. Anyone who watched the race with even one eye half open would have come to the conclusion that the driver of Johnny White should have been asked serious integrity questions by the stipes on the day.
     Why didn't they do their job then.  It is an obvious question that will be asked come the court case,and rightly so.
    the answer is I believe they were turning a blind eye to dishonesty because of the high profile of those involved.. Just look at the backlash they are getting from many now they have decided to do their job properly.
    The consequence of  enforcing honesty is you upset those who believe dishonesty is acceptable.

    addington should be great for change and also would like to see Auckland get it at least one year . The 1980m doesn’t really worry will still be outstanding mile rate  times. Auckland 1609 is that bad also. Cambridge and Ashburton have done a good job but it has died off abit the last few years. Still think calendar year stakes qualification and 2nd or 3rd week January  jewels day would attract a lot more horses and people to the day.
