    hrnz to close most tracks !

    ..... and the North Canterbury horse population should be pretty healthy

    corona

    A fine example of self-entitlement if that's the case and a great way to assist having the game shut down for the time being.

    Alex Park even caters for the Ghosts

    If that's the case then ATC needs a kick up the arse!

    Auckland noms Friday

    Andre nailed it - you soon get tired of drawing poorly over a mile with the average horse and getting nowhere as a result - ATC made it clear a while back that they really only want to cater for the “good” horses .... how’s that working out for them?

    In my experience, they don't often get many extra noms by extending the time. That's because they're not pro-actively chasing them by ringing trainers - they just seem to sit back and hope!

    Pronounciation

    Des Coppins still calls horses with the "Waingaro" prefix "Wayne Garo" - has done for years!

    What a "dick" comment!

    Sad state of affairs

    Two meetings in the north this week - total nominations 180. Three meetings in the south this week - total nominations 577. Post copied from another site, but sounds about right and seriously worrying for the north. Another 7 race programme at Alexandra Park and could've been worse if Sunday's Cambridge meeting was on the grass!

    What will the excuse be this time?

    Nothing nasty in that post and nothing to do with social media. It's in the public domain for all to see. https://www.bsa.govt.nz/decisions/all-decisions/chilcott-and-television-new-zealand-ltd-2013-056/?fbclid=IwAR0aVkBAhHqKN7yMheiqaNrsImrOE8jD8GPeA9RyQv5CWLSXs3ueMlnYHNE

    I'm told that a former employee will be getting the blame for the "mistake" this time. Isn't this her 3rd (maybe more) positive swab? Plus a criminal conviction (oh sorry - another mistake): https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10852253 What a great Team Teal Ambassador!

    Attendance at Rotorua today

    Poor attendance not surprising if little marketing was done ..... clubs fault if that proves to be the case.
