    So, in that case, its not safe for the crusaders or any All Black that is a crusader to fly overseas at all. Isis has been gotten rid of in Syria and now merged all over the world with Refugees so the attacks are going to ramp up world wide,too dangerous for our Rugby players to go anywhere. Do you really think changing their name is going to make them safe?

    What is this obsession you have with Chris Dell?I will remind you that you are only as good as the stock you ride. He has had 4 rides for me this season and i cannot complain about any ride and that is hard for me to do.I watched him ride a horse called Blue Breeze and again i thought he had ridden it well My horse's owners wanted a change with a better credential jockey, the horse went worse and the same happened with Blue Breeze. The reason i put Chris on was for his work ethic, he attends the track every day, rides anything and never complains..If every jockey in NZ had his work ethic you would have to pay for stablehands to ride work, just like the old days

    The Informant Chutneyed

    Scooby it is available on line but they need to make money,so then you subscribe and read the article and it ask you to subscribe.The NZRB have a history of failure and gave not one cent to their running cost of a paper they gave you the fields from NZ and AUST AND WITH LOCAL NEWS,John Allen along with the plate thrower and all the other board member should/must be asked to resign.

    The Informant Chutneyed

    NZRB and the TAB hold your heads in shame.Heard Dennis Ryan on Trackside and he rightfully didn't hold back The board of NZRB in my opinion should be sacked forthwith. The Informant had zero financial assistance from NZTR and yet they produced the fields every week and wrote supporting articles to assist turnover,beggars belief how this has unfolded

    Grey Way's race record

    TM, Without a doubt, the best horse i have seen,in fact, the only horse that bought a tear to my eye,when Reon said 100m to go she couldn,t win, but she kept coming and beat Guest Star and Sobeit IN THE CANTERBURY GOLD CUP, Tina Turner wrote that song for her, SIMPLY THE BEST.

    I went down for the week and had a great time.The highlight for me was the win by Media Sensation,this was after my biggest bet in a long time on the 3rd horse went astray. The Barnswood team are top people and always have a smile, even on bad days and deserve any luck that comes there way

    Crashed again

    I was doing the selections at our golf club for the day,we were getting close but not getting a result,so went to place a bet of $200 to win on Sacred Judgement. We had gone to the trouble of banking the money into a TAB account,so we wouldn't miss getting on. When the bet was placed the screen came up blank, so didn't know if the bet was confirmed and told the crowd who were getting updated with bets. They couldn't believe that this could happen and were justified with there outrage, We didn't give up and gor 1.8% of the last Trifecta giving a $8.90 profit per $10 share. The damage had been done and the TAB have lost a of respect and i would like to see John Allen come out and give the reasons why the crash happened and if it was out of the TAB control or was it the TAB ARE INCOMPETENT.

    Well done to the Lindsays

    They tell me that the new stabbing area at Headquarters will have new fold away seats for the stable employees.It is a long day for these hard-working employees and will be big improvement, rather than sitting on a bucket, whilst watching their horses. They will be sponsored by Cambridge Stud.

    Mark Purdon Inca Comment

    TThis is the first time i have commented on this issue. I had a charge laid against me, which I am sure you most of you know the result. I cannot believe that all the persons being charged, cannot get a wage until the case has been heard, do none of these people have a mortgage, or family to support? Let's have a serious look at the RIU and their employer. We will start with M Goober Did he not work for the MET and was he not in charge of the new stable complex at Addington and a relation of his was appointed to construct the building and midway through the construction they went broke and another constructor was appointed to complete the building. Then he was either replaced or resigned from the MET and gained employment in Australia and was either sacked or resigned and fell into his current role as the head of the RIU? Is this the right person to run this Integrity unity? My experience says NO and i say this with all the contact between the RIU, JCA and my legal team and the CLEAR advise the RIU was given was that there was NEVER a charge to be answered too, but they wanted it to proceed. History says that they were WRONG and my estimate would be that it cost the RIU in excess of 55k.I believe I am correct when i state they do not care about the expenditure as it is completely funded from the Pokies. This is why the RIU send Stewards to the SI and vice versa and when he was questioned about this added cost his explanation was it was good for other Stewards to get experience in other areas,I say rubbish. Do Stewards go to Sydney from Queensland,Queensland to Melbourne etc,the answer is No. So why do we waste money on this rubbish? I will let you decide, but if the money was coming out of his pocket would this wastage be happening? l was going to comment on several other issues, eg a starter dispatching a field with a man in front of the starting gates, he could have received fatal injuries, cones being left on the track and the races commences after an RIU steward had inspected the track, a RIU steward saying the track was safe to race last Saturday at Riccarton when a horse slips and he states in his report it was an isolated slip and lets the meeting proceed and then another horse slips in the next race and the meeting is called off. I give up on the incompetence of the RIU Organisation and more importantly, it's head.

    Patrick Erin

    Zip.Guy is a top person who does an excellent job selecting horses for clients. His record would be up with the best,his stand out selection would be Winx,but he has a record any bloodstock agent would want on their CV. I know the amount of time they put in researching pedigrees and watching videos of trials and races. The owners/Trainers of Patrick Erin were concerned about the weight/ratings he was getting in NZ and stated this in the media.So if he was smart enough to know this and select this horse for the white-hot competition of Sydney and to win a G1 from racing in the SI,then i believe he is more than entitled to wank on as you suggested, as promotion is a huge part of any business.
  15. Agree 100%,Sheldon is a wasted talent and would lap most presenters, I am like you and trust they utilize his skill set.
