    Are the Whip rules working

    Why does NZTR dilly dally around on the whip issue? Surely they could set the world on fire by banning whips? Show leadership etc. it won’t make any difference to NZ racing will it - other than chalk up at least one good move that will have the World of Racing sit up and follow little ole NZ’s lead. The Trainer’s lobby can’t be so strong that they might offer any meaningful objection.

    Are the Whip rules working

    There are two ways to stop whip use. Firstly, NZTR could show true leadership ( read “balls”) by banning them altogether. It would create a chain reaction across the Tasman and beyond. Or, secondly, they could bring in a new rule that says fines will be increased by X% and any guilty parties who finish in a stakes winning position will have their horse immediately disqualified from the race.

    Big Win Avantage

    That was back in the Early autumn when she won at Rosehill first up. I was referring to the latest trip to Oz in Sept 2019 when two starts produced nothing. That often return home and return to winning form.

    Big Win Avantage

    Amazing how some good horses turn their poor Oz form around when they return from an Oz campaign. Was always going to win in the straight. Great run by Enzo’s Lad as well!

    It’s Strathayr - as you no doubt know. But it’s drainage is the key to its success and durability.

    Re NZ or USA or UK or AUS bred/owned or whatever. What’s the point of debating it? Melody Belle is by Commands isn’t she? A Sire based in Aust - where she was conceived. Does that make her AUST? How many “NZ Breds” are there by Fastnet Rock and other Sires who have never set foot in NZ. So what does that make Super Seth? By the time he settles in at Stud in NZ, all his progeny will be sired in NZ and I’d presume a few will be born in Oz. What will that make the latter born? NZ or Aus bred? I’m sure the kiwis will claim them and so will the Aussies !

    I don’t know - that’s why I asked. That seems a big number. It has to be “at any one time” and not over a year surely? I mean, for example, someone like James Cummings and Godolphin would have (I think) 500 horses on their books during a year. That’s on their own. I was at a lunch last year and on my table we had JC and the Godolphin CEO and I’m sure when asked he mentioned the number 500. Also, Chris Waller on his own would be up there. To have 1000/1200 at Cambridge seems a lot at any one time? Perhaps Woodsie may have some idea? Right now, today, how many horses in work at CAMBRIDGE?

    The biggest training centre in Australasia? How do you measure that? By the number of horses in training there? Where did you get your figures from? Also, how many horses would there be “In Work” at any one time?

    You don’t know where Toowoomba is? You should visit it sometime. But you’d be out of step there - salt of the earth on the Downs.

    Seriously, I think there might be treatment available for you. Whatever form it takes, shock treatment, a weekend in Toowoomba talking to real people...It will help you.

    Prizemoney

    By TNZ I was generalizing a little. You are correct of course. But I was merely referring to the overall picture and how it’s going to be difficult to attract the top players with the lead ups to the Aust Open. That’s the main game with $AUD70million prizemoney and ranking credits to boot.

    Well, the Trainers, led by Toowoomba training legend Jim Atkins, were vehemently opposed to putting in a AWST. They didn’t support it due to concern about horse welfare, were ignored, the punters deserted it and within a few years (2 or 3) it was ripped out.

    Prizemoney

    Agree with you there and TNZ do a great job considering the prizemoney and Venue. But with the ATP Cup (Ranking Points) attracting all the big name men’s players and a push to include a Women’s version next year, it’s going to make it tougher for TNZ to attract anyone from the top 10. Then there’s the Brisbane International going from strength to strength, especially since the magnificent Pat Rafter Arena was built.
