    You are a huge chance, going by the last Election in the Auckland City, where Chole Swarbrick won, If Aucklanders can vote her in, anything can happen
  3. I often watch videos of races when a jockey has been suspended and Race 1 at Counties has been confused. The horse Me Liberez ridden by M Hashizume was involved in an incident at the 900m.The charge was easing the pace abruptly. I waited for the Stewards vision before making an decision on the charge.After viewing the alleged charge,I am of the opinion that Masa was very hard done by being found guilty. What i believe was the he was easing from a 3 wide position into a 2 wide position,he look inside and eased into the running line,the rider of Borri Hyde contributed to the inci
  4. I rode The General a few times and he was the easiest horse to ride. The owners were real characters, I will tell you a few story's about them. They told me that General had been up and down State Highway that many times, that he knew where the pub was at Waikoloa ,as 1km from the pub the General knew the pub was a short distance away and would start rocking in the float, they would take him off the float and tie him to a gate. This was all good but the boys got another horse called Hasty Simm and they continued with the same practise. Then on one visit, unbeknown to the boys the Pub
  5. I was told by a racing expert, that the now Chief Stipe Ydgren mistook the rounds in a race in which he drove in,Can any Cafers confirm this? Thanks
  6. No,he can ride at 53kg any day of the week,so weight isn't issue here.
  7. I have been in racing for 50 years and i have never meet a better person than Tony,Nobody had a bad word to say bout him and he did as well as he did as a trainer,through sheer hard work. Tony helped me a lot as an appretice and gave me a lot of winners. I will tell you a story about Tony and Mr Aybee.I had ridden Mr Aybee in the Riverton Cup and he ran 2nd after to Miles Better, i thought he had every show.On the first day of the Easter carnival at Riccarton i picked up the ride on Candyboy,in the Geo Adams,he bolted in and on the last day i was down to ride Mr Aybee bit also could
  8. Went to puke today to watch our 2yo,i thought it went OK,but get home to watch the video they had heat 5 up but nothing else,people in charge of this shit,need to get the shit together,i have 10 people who had to work and i told them to watch the video,but because of these non performers who get paid for shit service,i will be struggling to hold the syndicate together because of this incompetence.
  9. The RIU has lost respect from me again. I am told that A Dooley, now this is the guy who was the chairman of the JCA , when the 2yo of B Lindsay was wrongly relegated from 1st placing and also there was confusion over who had lodged the Inquiry, then J Oatham said he will lodge the protest.Mickey Mouse all around. I have no evidence that Mr Dooley fell out of favour with the hierarchy of the JCA and his position was in jeopardy after his wrong decision, but it does appear odd that he has now gone from the judge to the Lawyer, no doubt with the support from Godber and Oatham. I w
  10. Yes i noticed that his hands were continually shaking

    Michael,i will tell you the reason why J Oatham was based in the SI. He went down there to look after his daughter who had just had a baby. Now, this is very noble, but he was appointed as the Head Steward(Northern), my argument if he could to the job from Christchurch, that is good, but if he wanted to do the big meetings up North, he should pay his own way, but this would never happen, as the RIU has been reckless with their finances, even having to pay 12k to me(which still went to my Barrister) plus the 5k i had to pay,after 3 telephone conferences, where it was clearly indicated
  12. Correct Gary, but when you cant deposit funds into your account, it leaves you with the problem i had. When the TAB becomes more competitive and wants to look after its customers, I will change back to support our Industry. The other issue, i got a lot more value on my bets.It is human nature to get the best deal available. When any business has competition, they must compete and the NZ TAB has a lot of ground to make up.
  13. Yesterday, I gave my son $200 to put into his Bet 365 account for some bets, as i am over this monopoly called the TAB. Well what a user-friendly site, you get the best odds offered, you can cancel your bets, not sure how long before the start of a race, as I didn't use that facility. I just found the whole experience so much better than our $50m platform, so unlikely i will use our TAB again in the near future.
  14. They don't get much worse,I will give him 1/10 and he only gets 1 as he stayed on the horse.I hope he gave the riding fee back to the connections.
