  1. Thanks
    bus stop got a reaction from meomy in On course betting terminals.   
    Have been told Auckland Greyhounds the other week had offered to cover all costs to have on course terminals operating wages, line hookup etc but the power to be said no. I also understand they have offered to buy the existing terminals and cover costs but no way will they let that happen. Just goes to show that when a club tries to help themselves they get no surport.

    Saddened to hear of Mike's passing,had spoken a few times and i loved following the martin dogs.Mike and Linda always had a good dog born and bred at home of course too.
    He was a fan of mine which was a priviledge as clearly he knew what it took to be a good greyhound caller.
    Taken far too soon and he will be sadly missed.Deepest sympathy to Linda,Brian and the whole martin family on your loss.
    NZ greyhound racing is all the poorer without him.

    So sorry for the passing of Mike.
    A man with such a constant work ethic for fairness at all levels of this sport.
    In my early days of training I went to Hutt Park and met Mike and Linda.
    I was so impressed with the fitness and magnificent condition of their bitch "Spades".
    I declared to myself that day, that I would always endeavour to present my dogs in a similar condition.
    I have never forgotten that day.
    I will always remember Mike as a stalwart for those with lesser opportunity than others.

    Musical chairs but with consequences. Barsi from GR to HR. Holden from GR to HR. Hughes from RB to GR. Dore from TAB to GR. George, RIU, ARC, TR, more chairs than the queen's banquet hall. Those are just a few off the top of my head. Racing seems to like recycling the same air.

    I think he’ll do alright Ted. Will be a bit of a grind at first and he’ll have to do the hard yards to make his mark but he’s definitely got the talent for sure. Just needs the right horse to showcase that talent and maybe Jennifer Eccles could be the horse to do that for him. 
     
    Look forward to seeing what he can achieve over here.

    Well they say.....give a dog a bad name...... One can only but guess the breeding. I'd say its probably out of "The Pub" by "Two O'clock."

    I hope you caught up with the FormGuides for both Cambridge and Addington today. They are severely abbreviated but every dog is covered and once you get the hang of it, you can follow it quite well. There is a huge amount of info there. Btw, I presume you people check out the Punters Lounge each day to find out what is available. If not, you should.
    I hope you have been taking note of the Comments Lines for all meetings except Addington. As well, there have been very good interviews. One with Marcie Flipp very good. Also Mark and Philippa going through the fields providing more informatio as they did today.
    I did Comments Lines some time ago now for a couple of months and they are/were very time consuming - several hours' work - but at least there was a payday at the end of the day. I am not at all sure this is the case at the moment. Just people trying to assist in providing the information for punters to have an informed bet and not just bet blindly.
    It is called generating revenue. That is the life blood of the sport/industry we call Racing.

    I think people are deluded if they think any new tracks will open up in the interim. I see most tracks closing with one down south, one in the CD, and one up North.

    Pete is as knowledgeable as anyone in the industry Jo and if you follow his picks he is seldom far from the money. Saying a dog can't win and that dog does win goes with the territory. I think he was a good choice for the position and should be reinstated immediately

    bus stop reacted to GOM in Blood on the floor   
    Have a look at gg's forum, Blood on the floor posted by Barry Lichter. Trackside have dumped many of their long time commentators and presenters, yet Trevor Wilkes and Peter Early seem set to remain. Unbelievable both are so far past their use by date it's not funny. What is funny is listening to either of them call a race on my car radio then watching a replay when I get home and you would think they were two different races .Mark Roso to do all CD which Is enough to put you to sleep and in the meantime the most accurate and entertaining of the lot Jason Teaz gets the axe.
    Madness, I'd like to see which the ones that wrecked it in the first place got the boot
