    Pleased to see Thenamesbond has been retired, he didn't want to be there any more. And I feel TD is in the same boat. I don't think its an age thing, it's a mindset. So setting an age limit serves no purpose.

    Champion Mare rewarded.

    Awesome to watch again. And how good was she going on the home turn in the Air NZ Stakes. She was cantering.

    Police Raids

    Well at Blenheim one of those favourites named in the race fixing, won the race. So?

    Police Raids

    The one thing I do wonder about, how can you have race fixing involving only 2 drivers in the race? What about all the other starters? There is no guarantee that one of them isn't going to come along and win. It seems rather odd to me. Race fixing presumes that most of the drivers would be in on it. Otherwise it's nearly as much a gamble as betting on a straight race anyway.

    Police Raids

    I trained and drove in that era, no one ever asked me if I wanted to win.

    Weights Query again

    And there maybe a perfectly good reason for the difference in weights but how is it decided? I am thinking of the weights for the Winter Cup. Two mares, on the same rating,, same number of wins, similar stake earnings although the higher weighted one of the two has won about 30k less and is one year younger (6 as opposed to 7).

    Another 100% guess, Syntax?

    The Name's Bond

    Must be one of the tougher jumpers of recent times. What a wee cracker of a horse, he never gives up. But I rather fear weight will get the better of him sooner or later.
  11. La Zip, good on you. Nice to hear that someone actually cares about the horse and not just the big dollars

    Take a bow...Aaron Kuru

    And he never hung onto it's mouth to regain his seat, he's got his hand through the breastplate strap, that's even better horsemanship.

    And carrying 71kg. I couldn't see any value in lining him up myself

    However it is uneven/rough surfaces that break a horse down not wet ones
