  1. How do you line up aussie jumps races vs nz ones? Their Grand National Chase is only 4500m, 300m more than their Grand National Hurdles.
  2. Hopefully this "experiment" ends soon and Trackside realize you need presenters to be on track watching the horses parade, talking to trainers and jockeys, reporting on the weather and track conditions.
  3. Gets a bit boring when O'Brien has a monopoly on the racing over there.
  4. Ardern won't be going any time soon.
  5. Can't think of anything positive that came to racing from the last National government. Not sure why it will change this time around.
  6. Nats downward trajectory since Key continues...
  7. Part of the problem is racing has no one in its corner speaking out. Successful administrators know how to communicate and explain to the general public by giving interviews to every network saying how important racing is, answering critics etc. When you don't do that the void gets filled by all the naysayers, then public opinion turns on you and the politicians bail.
  8. V'Landys does sometimes go too far, the Everest colours on the Sydney Opera House debacle wasn't great for racing, but at least you know he is pushing hard for the industry he is representing, and not sitting back like other administrators who expect someone else to sort things out.
  9. Great to see him back today. 3 G1's in Aus now, not something many kiwi horses can do, especially over the sprint distances.
  10. It's avaliable on click here and scroll down for this weeks episode Also post all their weekly shows on their website that don't get aired here. After The Last is their review show and is a good watch. Autumn Contenders is another one.
  11. I expected something like that. He loomed up and then looked very unhappy in the straight, and horses he had pretty easily accounted for two weeks earlier were going past him.
  12. Catalyst has been taken to Ballarat Vet Clinic to determine the extent of a back issue.
  13. I'd love to see him over 2400m in a race like the Tancred since he's out of a top staying mare but the 2000m races will be his limit given how valuable the QE and Cox Plate are.
  14. I think he'd win a Cox Plate but trainer seems to be looking towards the Everest and Golden Eagle judging by his comments this week, they are in discussions with slotholders.
  15. Who was the last nz trained horse to win this race?
