    That 500,000 pounds for a Group One at Royal Ascot, converts to $875,000 Aus.
    Emphasises the amazing money on offer in Sydney racing these days.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Hermione in Trump written off   
    In regard to former President Trump, there is nothing coming out of the Congressional Hearings into 6 Jan 2021 that cause you to go, "Oh, that's a surprise."
    Donald Trump's actions around this time reflect how he has acted throughout his entire life. In business and in politics.
    Ruthless promotion of his own interests; self-serving lies and embellishments; refusal to listen to advice that counters his agenda; rewarding those who agree with him; burning anyone who does not; etc.
    You can't have person like that as President. The onus is on Republicans to gather some moral fibre and find an alternative

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Gruff in Can I have my stats back please!   
    I've looked at your form history Atheist. 183 starts for no wins and three placings (at Wairoa, Reefton and Blenheim).  At one stage you went out for a five year spell, while your trainer tried to work out why you continually tailed off by 10 lengths. You just need to suck it up and work your way up through the rankings. However, won't be easy now they've shut down Waipuk, Stratford and Marton.

    Any good Australasian horse travelling to the Northern Hemisphere to compete is exciting, although not without risk.

    I see Kieran Crowley the current Italian Coach and former Naki great, is bagging his old countrymen.
    Says NZ supporters are "arrogant" and All Blacks unlikely to win the 2023 World Cup.
    He's probably right about the Cup, but likening us supporters to English supporters is a bit harsh.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Baz (NZ) in Langkawi   
    It was a very patient ride. Have a look at Paisley Park. One place ahead of Langkawi on the rail at the 600m, when the jockey decided to go wider in search of a runs that never came.

    ...and now we have Winston; walking like the unmasked Messiah, through the massing throng of lepers.

    Is this perhaps the second coming that 6xes has been predicting? It's not Trump...it's Winston who will lead us top the promised land.

    The modelling was carried out by an overseas group, IHME, and was met with scepticism by the, "scruffy Uni types who could do with a wash", here in NZ. While they didn't dismiss the modelling entirely, they noted NZ has unique circumstances. They also said preventive measures had to take into account economic factors.
    One could speculate that the Govt's Red Traffic Light setting, was implemented at the correct time and is working well, keeping numbers down and flattening the curve.

    You can't cannot anoint a sportsperson "the greatest of all time", during the euphoria following their greatest ever victory. You must wait for the sediment to settle to the bottom of the bottle. Then you make the call.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from 100 1 in Trump written off   
    The new Republican Governor of Virginia appears to have used a blueprint, which might be emulated by Republicans seeking office, from here on in.
    He accepted Trump's endorsement, but by and large steered clear of any talk of stolen elections, or the like. And no way did he want former President Trump coming to Virginia, so he had to be seen on a stage with him. That's now political suicide!

    Thank you so much for addressing a servile plebeian such as myself, Nerula. I would abase myself at your feet, but I fear they are stuck in the mud.
