    While we put the All Blacks and league players as tough/hard or whatever we must acknowledge just how jockeys probably beat the lot for courage putting themselves at risk day after day,week after week,I personally reckon a lot want gold medals for their efforts that in many cases aren't acknowledge by the general population.

    And my tongue-in-cheek posting obviously by-passed the cranium of a few as I was suggesting a meeting as I will be scouting for a horse myself!

    Yes depends, however March is s good month because:
    1. It's not Christmas (dec)
    2. It's not sales time (Jan feb)
    3. It's not yet getting cooler (April)
    true farming logic that.
    OR if the foal is  dragging the mares condition down and she's in foal. A better question would be when do I start hard feeding.

    I hope the mare was hard fed when carrying the foal. They should both be eating hard feed well before being weaned. We tend to wean as Dopey says. the later the better, but big studs wean all at once regardless of when foal was born. Economics..

    Hey better be careful slinging at the best, lets face it - CWJ is one of the best in the saddle, we havent got alot of new talent coming through behind these riders either, this game is hard.
    Also if theres a genuine concern for peoples safety let the so called "big boys" take his license off him, dont get personal, nobody knows someones personal issues or needs no matter how mighty they might think they are, stop judging and deal with the supposed issue at hand

    New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing undertakes review of Ellerslie jumps races

    New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing undertakes review of Ellerslie jumps races
     
    New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing is conducting a full review of the jumping races at Ellerslie at Queen’s Birthday weekend. The review is being undertaken in conjunction with the Auckland Racing Club, the Racing Integrity Unit and New Zealand Jumps Inc.

    This follows the fatal injuries suffered by three horses who fell in jumping races at Ellerslie on Monday.

    “Any horse fatality is a tragedy, however, to have three incidents in one day, as we did at Ellerslie on Monday was most unusual,” the NZTR General Manager for Racing, Matthew Hall said.

    “We are looking at all safety aspects in jumping races, both at Ellerslie and on a national basis.

    “Just two horses had been fatally injured in jumping races at Ellerslie in the previous six years and the deaths on Monday were the first in a jumping race there since August 2013.

    “We have done a considerable amount of work to minimise potential injuries in jumping races – including an annual audit of every jumps venue - and the statistics would indicate that this is working.

    “Three horses, from 881 runners (0.34 percent), suffered fatal injuries in jumping races in New Zealand last year and two horses, from 907 runners, (0.22 percent) were fatally injured in 2014.

    “There is always an element of risk, to both horse and rider, in all equestrian sports but NZTR is committed to doing everything we can to mitigate those risks,” Hall said.

    Animal welfare is a significant part of NZTR’s operations and during 2015 NZTR set up a project with Waikato University to build a detailed equine injury database on raceday incidents. This includes more detailed incident forms, completed by on-course vets, aimed at identifying the frequency, type and outcome of racing injuries.
    NZTR also invested more than $1 million in racing and training infrastructure improvements in the past financial year, to maximise equine safety and welfare, and works closely with the RNZSPCA and the NZ Equine Health Association. NZTR also supports horse welfare studies through the NZ Equine Research Foundation and the Massey University Partnership for Excellence.

    Hi Ann thanks for providing such an informed opinion on this topic...I hope this encourages more with intricate knowledge in the industry to come out and have their say as well..., and thanks for all the great moments you and Kenny have provided over the past many years.

    You are certainly right especially on the lack of talent on the jockey front, the ranks are very thin, a tough life and those still riding in there 50s  a testament to dedication and longevity, and keeping the game going.
