    We don't have a rating system.

    I doubt that this is entirely the fault of the rating system ..... public perception of harness racing seems to be at all time low - I wonder why that may be ..... perhaps it is "fix-able"?

    We don't have a rating system.

    Bastardised is a better word. Rating plus win concession, rating plus $$ earned concession, rating plus JD concession to get ineligible horses into a field ..... yet they are reluctant to grant rating concessions so that more JD's actually get to drive amongst the seniors - handicapper discretion is too inconsistent for mine.

    Depends where you win - Manawatu seems to get you 6 points with handicapper discretion applied.

    Let's hope so for the sake of the rest of the industry

    Auckland fields ?friday

    I just hope that they put on a better display than many of the trials seen racenight - only one of three trotted the whole way at Cambridge Wednesday with one going into a totally mad gallop and the jockey seemingly unable to control it

    Race or Sell

    I've been let down by too many young horses showing promise but not going on with it. My current 2 yo will be sold as soon as he qualifies and if he doesn't shape up his yearling half brother won't even be broken in.
