    Fun night at the Trots

    I was invited to a fundraising event at Alexandra Park last Friday night. It was for a charity named Fish n Wish, I think that what it was called. The charity was started by a person named Bryce Dinnen, who was paralyzed from the neck down after a diving mishap. Bryce had worked for me in Christchurch and it was an excellent opportunity to support his trust. I brought a trailer for 2k, a wax, and manicure for $300 for the Duchess which i may add help break a long drought and went into a partnership for 8 people to go fishing at Great Barrier. The 2 downsides were,1/i was disappointed not see the fields for Addington in the race night book, as i thought there was 4 race turbo between the 2 clubs,as there were no fields,I didn't worry about it. Do these clubs not support each other, or what would the reason be for this happening? The 2nd downside was the pathetic effort from the punters club selectors, return =ZERO. No just kidding. Our group will be back next year as Bryce is a top bloke who prior to the accident was a top-class rugby and cricket player and he gave an emotional speech on his life after the accident and then a young fellow who was born with CP and his parents were told told that he would never walk or talk proved the experts wrong when he did walk and talk and went on to University and got a degree in Business Studies,It was very inspiring stuff

    Bad boy Bronson

    I do not know what all the fuss is about. Have you never abused anyone when driving a car when they cut in front of you on the road? Of course you have and when you are in a competitive race of any kind, your emotions are hard to control. Look at car racing,motorbike racing and I even seen an assault in the bike race the other day. He is entitled to his opinion, but make it a balanced opinion and when you do make an opinion make it on a worthwhile subject.

    Get the bugles out...he's going

    I wonder if Silver Fern Meat will go the same way,the Crafar farms should have been given to Maori and young NZ farmers.The farming show reported the Beingmate deal to be losing over 558 million I thought.
  6. Don't remember the Reefton race but for reasons that should be obvious, i remember the Kumara race. Your uncle was a hard bastard and he asked me to ge a good apprentice for an apprentice race, so i got him G N Davison who was in my view a top rider in the making,he gave it every show and ran in the placings . Kevin Dolan told me that Grant would never make it as a rider, I was talking to Kevin many years later and told him that Grant did make it and had just ridden his 1000th winner,the gruff reply was he must have improved Another good story and i believe it is true was that Kevin had brought a horse at the sales and.it was hard to break in and would continually buck, this was ok as Kevin's son would ride him, but one day he had to go on a rugby trip, so Kevin decided to ride the horse himself, he would have been around 65 years old then, well he got dropped when the horse starting bucking, .. I cannot say what happened to the horse but Kevin did win the battle, You didn't get a second chance with Kevin, one hard bastard.
  7. The day when my heart was broken and my life torn apart, Ross lived in Russley Rd and you are correct he moved out to a stud farm in Amberley Ross's father was Noel Simpson, he was very successful in the Harness code.

    Buy Air NZ shares

    The same happens with the RIU.They send Stewards to different areas to work,eg Oathan to Timura, Davidson to Pukekohe etc etc. When the inspired leader M Godber was questioned on this waste, his lame justification was that he would like the stewards to be familiar with other areas. Well my reply to that would be , Would you see Victorian Stewards going to Sydney, Queensland Stewards to Perth etc etc, no you don,t not even days like the Melbourne Cup If they had to pay for their own travel, like Jason Teaz has to, then i believe you would see this wastage cease and rightfully so.
  9. Brillant bit of humor,but i mean,it has taken me 25 minutes to get Karen{my wife] off the floor suffering from a laughing spasm and have just done that and she has been in the toilet for another 10 minutes, presumably changing her pants. I will get my own box for the day and as always happens i will end up with the 7 girls from your box,as they will be a bored and depressed as any person that has to suffer your hospitality and tips from your good self,you can keep the other 3 for reasons for reasons that will be clear to Cafers
  10. If i make the cut for your March Box at Ellerslie, i will concede your where no 1in the SI, otherwise if I miss the cut i will say you wouldn,t rate in the top 20,in fact i would put the late Ray Hewinson and Bill Berry ahead of you, Your choice,but if i do make the cut and those attractive ladies are not present, then you are a fair dinkum tosser

    gisborne sunday

    Went there 2 years ago and they offered the best deal ever offered,from memory it was $200 per starter,3 days accommodation at a nice motel and there was something else but Alzheimer's is a buggar. The club also had a 10k Trainers prize and unbelievably Kevin Myers had 4plus winners and ran 2nd as each starter earned points and Rogie had float loads of starters

    You are wrong again as to where he was born, what size he is and how good a punter he is, but don't let facts get in your way of your story.

    Best Racecaller in New Zealand

    In my opinion,the 2 most underrated are Bruce Sherwin and Jason Teaz. They are very accurate and when you are listening on the radio, they tell you where your horse/s are positioned in a race which you can then visualize in your head.

    Wellington Cup Day

    Von,I am struggling to believe this is Leo also. I am thinking that he may have taken off overseas with that glamour that he was seen with at the tennis, mind you i can see why he may have done so and a complete change of personality has occurred because of this rendezvous.
