    Final Race - Mornington Race 7
    Winner:  Not An Option 12points
    2nd:  Superium  2 points
    3rd:  Chassis 2 points
    La Mexicana was a late scratching and the subs were 5 then 9.    Unusual to have 11 on the $32 winner but it is an ex Kiwi so that might explain it.    
    Liz (Insider) was one of those on the winner and she leads from go to whoa to take out today's comp - congratulations Liz. 
    Liz kindly sponsored an earlier comp and also donated a bet that has helped the Soup Kitchen charity, so I'm pretty happy about the result today!
    Rooster Cogburn with a nice best bet on the winner to jump into second place.  Tasman Man also on the ex Kiwi and he rounds out the top 3.
    Thanks all for entering - shame about the abandonment

    You may have read on a different thread about Sayer's generiosity.
    Instead of having a bet at the TAB with his $200 from winning the Bulleyes Comp over the weekend, he decided to just donate it straight to the Soup Kitchen.... a wonderful gesture..
    So with a couple of other donations, the tally is now up to $1,655...

    With all due respect She competed her equine skills cert level three(competent and capable?)a quick browse through what that entails and one is left wondering how Blackadder racing was left holding a 300 k bill... I'd be asking questions of the organisation that prepared her for this role, which includes worksafe protocol.

    Insider reacted to Midget in I have been thinking   
    Are you on some form of medication, or cannot understand where i am coming from?
    The point i am trying to get across is before apprentice jockeys can be transferred to an employee to continue on there journey, they have been accredited to ride racehorses .Not doing what they are doing now, saying they have done so many years at pony clubs etc and trainers believe what has been told to them.
    Can you point me to were you believe ,i was distasteful to any of the injured parties? I am suggesting that a better system is in place to protect the riders and trainers from injury and financial ruin, as these two run parallel to each other.
  6. Thanks
    Insider reacted to Midget in I have been thinking   
    How much longer can Trainers be charged under the Work And Safety Act
    We have had S McKee and J Blackadder being charged and fined over $300.000 for allowing staff to ride when WSH say they were not ready to ride.
    We must find a better way to help and take the onus off the Trainers as who to blame when these situations happen. SO I HAVE AN IDEA.....
    Daniel Nakhie has started a course that makes a lot of sense, where potential riders and stable hands do a course which runs these people through all things Racing. This must be developed further and be given a accreditation certificate when completed.This way WSH cannot go and lay charges and finically ruin them when they allege the Trainers were negligent in there duty of care.
    NZTR should be all over this, to make sure the standards requirements are met .They have done things ,eg of appointing Riding Masters, which may be ok for Race day jockeys, but we need a system like Daniel Nakhie is doing and a similar one in the SI , to ensure that any Trainer who does take on staff,  are secure knowing that the staff have been accredited AND THIS MUST BE FUNDED BY THE INDUSTRY.
    As i see it at the moment, who would want to take unexperienced staff members on, knowing that are massive fines awaiting them with the status que rules and regulations they face now.

    Hi All,
    Insider gifted Say No More a $50 bet for running our comps, so he put the $50 on Aspen Colorado to run a place in the Oaks.  It duly obliged so that gave another $195 into The Sisters of Compassion Soup Kitchen. So the total is now up to $1,325.
    For the "Hit the Bullseye" Comp on the weekend, Sayer won a $200 bet coming up this weekend with Goodison winning a $50 bet. As mentioned in the entry thread for that comp, 50% of any winnings to be retained by them while the other 50% will go towards the Soup Kitchen.
    Scooby also gifted Say No More another $50 bet.
    So after their WINNING bets on the weekend coming, we will then close off the thread and I will arrange for all money received to be passed over to Say No More for giving to the Sisters of Compassion.
    While the initial aim was for $1,400 to feed 80 people a meal for 1 week, wouldn't it be great if we actually got to $2,000. So come everyone one last push, no donation is too small.. a $10 donation is 10 dollars more than nothing and 10 dollars more to the tally.
    .....and then I'll stop dragging a dead horse
    Thanks everyone

    I'm a bit nervous answering your question after reading  you telling a sensitive poster to pull their head in ! A bit threatening ! WOW !
    But seriously ,I am pissing myself at your comment that you don't watch Trackside so wouldn't have the foggiest idea !
    Quite an admission from probably the most prolific poster on NZ racing on this site.
    How do you  gather so much info....in academic books and as a small owner/trainer down at trackwork ?
    You commented that you came home on Saturday after trackwork and saw horses on the tarmac in Pukekohe birdcage.....were you on zoom to see that or have you moved North from what I assume is a CD base ?
    Then tonight you ask a question re the connection of the TAB and Trackside , the broadcasting arm of the TAB  !!!!!

    Yes it would be good to see more donate as we have close to a hundred on many weeks entering the comps...surely a spare coin or two would not be missed for many...you never know when you could need services like this and its not nice to fall on hard times and have nothing.

    Roch ‘n’ Horse and Levante’s  “new” ratings will go through the roof after Saturday’s result thus saving The Telegraph from being down graded! (Maybe The Railway too)
    They, R ‘n’ H & Levante are the same horses ability wise after the Newmarket as they were the day before, YET for sure they are going to be upgraded ratings wise or the Australian sprinters will all need 4 to 6 points knocked off their ratings. 
    TAKE YOUR PICK on which way it will go? 😂
