    TeAroha and Taupo bush, might pay to get your map out! All weather in Cambridge will be great!

    Had a few rides on the tracks have we Insider? We need a few Strath Ayr tracks obviously, shutting down all the country tracks isn’t going to solve a lot, especially the ones that are looked after by the volunteers. As I was saying, those CD tracks are bogs in the winter, field sizes say that!

    Great days racing, super hospitality and a team of people that are passionate about the game. Its fine closing all these tracks down, but when you see the likes of Otaki, Awapuni, and Wellington in the winter time, absolute swamps, where is the racing going to be held?

    What a shame

    Bar prices are over the top on most racecourses sadly. I havent been to Ellerslie since the introduction of the new connections bar, I hear it is good, so will check it out next time I am there.

    Name for my horse please.

    Andrew said he was never happy in the ground from barrier rise, and he thought the horse was going to get blown over on straightening. The run best forgotten!

    One of the Best Weigh Ins Ever !

    Wondered where the name change came from! It was pretty testing, Andrew thought it was a wee bit heavy for him. Probably off to TeRapa tomorrow week for a 1400m race at this stage.

    Happy enough team, 1.19 and change showed how testing the track was, 98mm of rain in the week leading up to the day. Andrew commented that he was going to push forward but was going to have to work to get there, so decided to take a sit. Tempo was moderate, so who knows, he was out there, I wasn’t! Horse rallied well in the straight, the experience won’t do him any harm and connections were happy. Will let you know shortly where we head next!

    Name for my horse please.

    Morning Race Cafe Team, our boy heads to Tauranga tomorrow to line up in race 2. Happy with him, he came through last weeks trial well, not really sure about the Heavy 11 track, but we have to start somewhere and he does seem to get through the going judging by his recent trials efforts. Andrew Calder takes the mount and he was a pleased with the trial win. Good luck to Anne and Steve, fellow shareholders, let the fun begin!

    Why not just leave Rogie to train it, let the owner who pays the bills make the decisions and butt your bloody noses out. Te Keeti Bloodstock can please themselves! So many experts!
