  1. Make all starts mobile like the majority of the world maybe?
  2. That should (hopefully) change once the smaller clubs come back "online" - Kurow at Oamaru on Sunday and Methven's back September 13.
  3. Punched, choked and then kicked he in the head when she was down .....
  4. Yep - they've talked up their stakes plenty of times and had to back down just as many.
  5. It might be Edward Rennell ..... and that wouldn't be a bad thing!
  6. If you look at the statement on the HRNZ website you'll see that they pushed for Forbury and Timaru to be gone but RITA overturned them.
  7. Agreed - is there an Easter weekend carnival anywhere now?
  8. Has the role been advertised, or will they just leave Mr Holden there?
  9. Yet they dictate that the amateur ($7k) race wouldn't proceed without at least 8 entries!
  10. Yep - it was a shocker after calling it the correct name for most of the trip
  11. Good riddance - absolute nut job from reading the JCA report!
  12. Geez - I never made bugger all off any of my horses after expenses no matter where they raced!
  13. http://www.jca.org.nz/non-race-day-hearings/appeal-s-lawson-v-riu-decision-dated-29-may-2020-chair-hon-j-w-gendall-qc
  14. The results haven't been updated with the qualifiers yet - always happens like this.
  15. That sounds like a meeting at Alexandra Park
  16. That's a bit of a stretch - those "bigger" trainers don't even attend the CD meetings, sending staff down with the horses so hardly "having a holiday at their owners expense"
  17. Cambridge to Taranaki = about 3 hours. Cambridge to Manawatu = about 5 hours
  18. Can't disagree .... the North has been struggling with this for a long time - just pointing out that there are actually back to back meetings in Canterbury
  19. Not quite true ..... there are a few Addington/Methven or Addington/Motukarara back to back, an Addington/Methven on the same day, and even an Addington/Addington/Methven on 11 to 13 December in the draft.
  20. Pretty sure there are workouts scheduled at both Cambridge and Pukekohe prior to the resumption of racing
  21. 200 was the old level 2 - latest is 100 inside or out
  22. .... heard somewhere that all sporting events will be "crowdless"
  23. Agreed - Harness Racing leadership has been seriously lacking!
  24. Fair call - I choose not to until I see what the the new season brings
  25. Ok - I'll use that reasoning when the farrier, transporter, vet and feed merchant bills come in.... should work right?
