  1. I had given up as I like to use an iPad while watching the racing on TV. But sure as anything at some point I would get the "white screen of death", a top taskbar and nothing else on the mobile app. Usually just before I went to place a winning bet, as is Murphy's 4th law on betting. I did convey this to their Support people but they suggested I use Chrome browser. I could have got more help from my young niece!. But got the same result. Re-installs, clearing caches, I went the whole mile. Probably out of technical curiosity than anything, couple d with a stubborn streak.. I opened up a Be
  2. Ellerslie had a loyalty card a few years ago but wiped it. They recommended we become members (then shut the course for nearly a year). Now the choice is easy, pay an entrance fee, get through security, be roped off from most areas, pay exorbitant food and drink prices, be blasted by static/music, OR stay at home with Wi-Fi, fridge and couch. Tough call!
  3. Neruda is right about some of the rides. Race 1 set the tone and it did not improve. After being closed for so long I thought the welcome mat would be out but we arrived at the door of the public lounge to find a “ Prvate Function - no entry” sign on the door. And half the front lawn fenced off too. I left by race 4 and next weeks private function will be staged in my lounge, with all facilities in operation.

  8. Thanks PJ Commiserations Dark Horses, it was a tough day to be looking for winners. Even up until the end it could have swung either way. We all know what a roughie can do to a match. Captain Cubes is probably still sucking in the oxygen after holding his breathe for the last hour. Geoff
  9. yes Brian $21, $16, $106 winners.... I bet there are a few watching thinking "there but for the grace of a God go I"

Thanks PJ for another few months of great entertainment. Geoff
  12. Only one match counts, and as we are in the final it can't have been the two previous matches in the Round Robin against the Dark Horses. All the pressure is on the Dark Horses, timed run, clean slate and all that....
  13. No worries Hesi. Is the "Lost" a pointer to the lay competition ?
  14. Tom, you have undergone a name change? It has taken a while to correlate the site names versus first names that PJ uses, and now you have thrown another curly in for the next comp. I had got used to Tom Turkey (Turny) to help remember. Things were looking a little dire at about R5 yesterday. We were -200 on 3 matches and looking at the head of a fairly large python. Then Roland produced one of those $91 winners that made Catalano's day and things swung from there. Sorry Cat, many of us have been there - often! Howie's "rooster to feather duster" quote sprung to mind. So we are happ

  18. at least you made it to the straight. I am leaning over the rail at the end of the back straight.
  19. talking of which... any results from last week's Ad Augusta swab/enquiry ?

  21. Well there goes any remote hope I had . The only time I missed both BB races was when Howie pointed that I got a good share of BB races. I wouldn't take any of my quinellas either now people. I bet TC is doing cartwheels as we speak! I like his logic on North v South except that apart from Tauranga racecourse the place I dislike the most is Pukekohe. It is the type of place that Basil Brush wins. And remember that day we were there and that horse whose name escapes me, with form of 21-0-0-0 won! (and never placed again). I am predicting a big Sir Castleton score for us this week.
