    Looking to get involved

    Go into NZ Greyhound web site and go into the trainers list contact details of local trainers are shown. The northern trainer I would recommend would be Jared Udy.
  3. Minnie not certain if you have been in contact with any greyhound trainer about where to start but I would recomend Janine Mc Cook 0274817915 or Bruce Dann 033027927

    Vale Max Matthews

    Yes sorry to hear of his passing was always very pleasant the times I had a chat with him when up that way. The code certainly could do with gentlmen like Max at the moment. RIP Max.

    $2000 Import Fee

    Yes Steve the northern region has and will continue to become the dumping ground for the 2 biggest puppy farms here in NZ as trainers require replacement racing stock.Dont expect Cup winners etc they will only be sent north when they are past their best and they dont have the worry about there dispersal.Perhaps they should be charged a fee once the dog leaves their racing kennels to goes towards rehoming.

    Just read a coms from Greg Kerr stating that due to the reported suggestion of Green Tea being in Coprice that it should not be fed 72 hrs before a dog races I know this kibble is used by a number of trainers so will be interesting if any postives are detected over the next 3-4 days and what the outcome would be if proven if coprice was the source.

    Brian Martin

    Yes agree Brian did a great job on Friday night and greyhound racing need him back on deck. Mark does a job good calling but i think his forte is presenting with his wealth of knowledge he comes across very well when in that roll.

    WAIPA RC - Te Awamutu GONE!

    Do we need to go back to less midweek race meetings. Racing is becoming a bore with wall to wall racing its just like being married to the same partner for a time and you need to spice it up so its something to look forward to.

    Auckland cup

    Steve have to agree the food they presented was a bloody embrasment which they offered to the guests, if finances are a problem I would suggest they find a sponsor. They need to come Christchurch to see what the guests are offered.

    Auckland cup

    Understand from my northern contact that a certain ex Aussie trainer had input on the way the track was presented on Sunday he stated that the track was in good nick.
  17. Also on the pervious web site you could click onto a jockey and it would show the mounts that jockey had for that meeting which could be used as a quick reference which saved you going through each race to see their mounts if you follow a particular jockey.

    Philippa Morris

    I pretty sure Wayne trained the horse Account that was placed in the Derby a while back I think he trained out of Te Rapa. And I am sure Phliappa will make the grade with her trackside carrer.

    Yes and the Cambridge track is no better the sand compostion is not correct to many pot holes in the sand after the mat has been over it
