    Philosophical Question

    Yeah we pulled the pin on ownership as a syndicate...too costly. Must be Tax Write-offs or some other scheme available to retain so many owners in the game Whats the inside oil ? LOL

    TAB MONEY BACK MADNESS PROMO

    M6TE AROHA Race 4 FFWIN: 6, FFPLC: 490 It is the new system by where, if you want to take a fixed odds place price early, (FF/PLC... to ensure pay-out and beat fluctuations and price drops )...Tab price still often pays more ! BUT 6 months ago before all the wonderful new expensive changes... there was a logistical meeting and race numbering system that made sense to punters and operators alike and avoided delays. E.G from the example above today ...(in the past)...would have been M6TE AROHA Race 4 FFWIN: 604 ... (M6 R4), follwed by your horse number ! SO Tauhei, NO...can,t help you mate M6TE AROHA Race 4 FFPLC: 490 I think the TAB now employ dementia patients to dream up their FF option numbers.

    just a silly question Huey...I realise we must be waaay smaller than Oz in most aspects of the Industry, BUT is that justification, and representative of the stakes difference?...and more importantly... how do admin. costs compare ?. We seem to throw good money after bad and still await improvements. (I,m only a silly punter now, but have been involved in the industry previously)

    15k min stakes would return owners to horses and trainers in Business because you wouldn,t continually be dipping in the pocket to pay extras...vets, farriers etc,etc. it would become fun and a social thing attracting youngsters and grow from there. Oh Shit yeah , i remember Grey Way, On Show , No Show, Tono Bungay, Shivaree, Mop , Fraxy, Game,...... (that is off the top of me head)...don,t get me started.
  7. 1. First 3 3-11-1 2. Last 3 4-18-19
  8. 1. Randwick R6 6 , 1, 3 2. Flemington R7 10 , 3 , 11 cheers Porky
  9. Thanks for that Ohoka...along way from the action up here...and yeah i,ve even heard of the Riccarton Markets (probably been myself).. .to be quite honest I like markets as a community event...some are better than others ...up north...Waihi / Thames / Coromandel excellent.(as well as the fishing) And crikey yes , the Maori deserve to hold onto their land...Foreign investment would see it gone in a heartbeat !
  10. AND ? ...DOES THIS RELATE TO RACING ?... A spokeswoman for Russell McVeagh referred any requests for comment to NZ First MP Clayton Mitchell. His office has been asked for comment. A spokesman for New Zealand First said "In the absence of state funding, dinners like this are a typical part of fundraising for political parties in New Zealand." While steep, $350 is relatively cheap for a fundraising event. Labour charged $600-a-head for seats at a post-budget speech from Finance Minister Grant Robertson earlier this year. A dinner with then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016 would cost you US$250,000 ($383,836) a couple, according to Bloomberg. Stuff
  11. I watched this Doco on the internet itself last night...and its ability to sway opinion etc for political gain. When are all these proposed changes to take place winstone ?...(meetings with affected clubs scheduled and results published.) and highly paid suits and consultants efforts reliased? ... or shown the door to stop more wasted stake money ! If something like this major plan at Riccarton is mooted...stop the talking...get the bull dozers in, The mind boggles at the possibilities infield and outfield (market is all very nice, and I,m not close enough to the action)...BUT weekend market space could possibly be better used or shared during the week with with another activity.
  12. Yep agree guys... main points highlighted
  13. Shit you guys have got stickability, your game, loyal, stayers... I gave up hope 5 or 6 years ago and just go to the races for a punt now-days. As I said earlier, what next when all the silverware is sold off, to up stakes, and rural participants have hopped across the Tasman ? Hope they have a long term plan for keeping Stakes at a sustainable level to keep all grades racing horses (like yourselves ) in the game. The big breeders and overpaid free drinking admin.should be brought into line and hit in the pocket with the Grass root grafters,( to get us out of the shit.) That 18-40 y-o syndicate stuff hasn,t eventuated yet Huey...more like 50-80 y-o,s (at Hastings on Saturday anyway LOL) ...Fortuna syn.etc I voted Winston for change and with the likes of Ohokaman,Berri and Red Rum,s financial nous , the industry could possibly be saved without unwanted track closures.
