  1. Seems to be suiting people with the good mares .Wouldn’t help with the resulting foals by any chance .
  2. Why should Hurry Cane be lumbered with 62 kg as a rating 89 in an open handicap ? There’s a rating 55 in the race obviously way out of its grade It has the option to race in its own grade so why are the weights done from the bottom up?
  3. Usually weights are adjusted if a horse pulls out .
  4. Under a normal open handicap the weights would of been raised when Beauden dropped out.
  5. Can someone please explain how the topweight in the Open handicap Wellington Cup is 57 kg? With a 53 kg minimum only a 4 kg spread - as below from handicapping policy . 6.2 Minimum Top Weights (including stayers Group and Listed top weights) The top weight allocated in a Handicap flat race, at the time of weight declaration, shall not be less than: • 60.0kg in all Handicap races Group 3 and below, that are run at a distance up to and including 2199 metres. • 59.0kg in Group 3 and Listed races that are run at a distance of 2200 metres or further, for horse rated up to and including 9

    TAB rounded it back up to $100 plus a $25 free bet each .
  7. What a complete F Wit ! I’d love to see Kate smack you one in the face .
  8. I’ve been to Hastings many times and the bar staff have been told to stay open till 40 mins till after the last but the bar staff take no notice and shut up shop .Worst case I had was at Wanganui and they shut the bar on two occasions 30 mins prior to the last .Remember someone from club commented on here that he was dismayed it was happening and start he’d sort it out . Clubs need to let bar staff know what’s expected .
  9. Going good mate . Have syndicated 3 horses last few months and introduced 10 new owners .Tracks going great with the new starting gates so regular jumpouts are held. Ironically with losing our race meetings for now it’s become a great training facility worth being able to use course proper .
  10. I don’t think it was on New Year’s Day .Whoever it was the decision was terrible .Races were all over within a few hours then Zilch .
  11. Bars maybe but it’s the TAB that decided to close down all the betting facilities and turn off the big screen .The club would of been peeved I would say.Why the club and TAB couldn’t organise to keep everything functional till the last in Auckland is beyond me .
  12. The TAB don’t help themselves at times . New Year’s Day at Hastings their was a very healthy crowd considering it was a 6 race card . Like many I expected the TAB and big screen to stay operational so we could carry on betting and watching the Ellerslie races unfold . But no the TAB couldn’t close everything down fast enough which also included the bar staff . You had a captive audience on track and they were treated like crap . Another missed opportunity and many left pissed off .
  13. Interesting though the winners of the money I think 14 k were the Love Racing syndicate so guess us industry participants are paying them for a mediocre job and they are not even punting with the TAB? NZTR employees? Oh and I’m steve not Steven
  14. Not listened to one race or bet during the week since Trackside radio disappeared am I’m a hardcore racing guy. If it’s only a 2 million a year cost surely it’s a no brainer to reinstate
  15. They need to do something mate . I’ve not had a bet or listened to any races mid week since they culled the racing station .Im sure I’m one of many .
