    Auckland Cup Day last 600m tImes.

    TerrIfic Day of racing don't you think? AccordIng to NZR three horses broke 33 seconds for theIr last 600m times on the day. They were.: R8 2000m Prise de Fer 32.63 ( 5th) Supera 32.68 (3rd) Avantage 32.76 (1st ) R6 1200m Vernazza 33.18 (2nd) R3 PackIng Rockstar 33.40 R6 Coolazabeel 33.29 Come In Please Neil Davis. Who verIfies these sectional times. Do the horses only wear transponders on their saddle cloths on Group One Days? Why aren't sectIonals available regularly from all NZ Metrop courses ? Rev

    One for Gubellini

    Jim. Happy Thursday evening to you lovely man. Your mention of Larry (HN) WIGGINS in your post about Back Fire brings back many memories from my Dad's stories about Larry Wiggins. One of the all time greats Larry Wiggins rode 946 winners n NZ 3 more than Hector The Protector Gray How many Railway winners did Larry ride ? was it 5 ? He trained at Warwick Farm later in life. He rode for the Agar Khan.He wore silks in Ireland, France, Italy and America. He was a fitness addict and sparred with my dad at the Auckland Gym
  4. Bob always took the direct positive action. As he did yesterday.Bless him. At Cambridge JC committee meetings ,Bob would pound the Meeting Table so hard, that ( Secretary ) Gail Barkla's type writer would fall off the table. Bob was influential in getting Alan L Jones elected as the first ( ?) Licenced Trainer on a Racing Club Committee. Trainers were previously barred. Retaining the Cambridge JC and developing rentable Barns for our future Trainers has been seen to profit 20 years on. Bob was for ever denounching the increasing Race Day ground rentals , paid by our CJC for Te Rapa ( Herbie Dyke) .. As an owner Trainer, Bob Morris never put front plates on his young gallopers. This unnerved Gary Edge . Thank you Bob for being part of our family for 60 years. Rev
  5. Today RANIER won Race 9 at Rosehill. Trained by J Cummings Post race young James Cummings said " Rania is one of the very few horses that I train that I put a tongue tie on on race day ". Does this mean that the Godolphin breeding program actually weeds out foals/ yearlings with long tongues ? Or may be His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum couldn't afford the expence of recycling used silk stockings or panty hose . How prevalant are tongue ties in NZ Racing.Thoroughbreds.Are they used in Standard bred racing ? Some one will know the Tongue tie stats for our amazing Trainers with 30 or more individual winners per year. Marsh, Ritchie, Baker/Forsman , Autridge, Richards, Williams ,Kelso, Tiley ,R James etc Opinions ?

  9. NZ racing needs to promote The Foxbridge Plate race to a Group One. Drop one of the other silly events with group One status and 7 horse fields before the international committee swat them . Interesting comparisons between Endless Drama and the 2015 winner Addictive Habit and 2012 winner Fleur de Lune. The Trophy yesterday from Valaci Downs was an amazing work of art. The owners get to keep it. Fully inscribed with all previous winners since 1950 ( Mainbrace). Addictive Habit before winning the FB Plate last raced 04 July 2015 at the Sunshine Coast.He was poorly ridden Luke Dittman 3rd ? No trials but serious hit outs.Then he won the Lisa Chittick Fox Bridge Plate. Endless Drama trialed very well after running 3rd to Trekking 8th June 19.

  12. ENTRY THREAD : WINTER RACING ULTIMATE TRIO TEAMS CHALLENGE SATURDAY 10 AUGUST : ALL WELCOME ! We will be trio-ripping through Pukekohe Park, Riccarton Park, Flemington, Rosehill, Doomben and Belmont As you post your selections I will add you to a trio and your team of three will compete against others on Saturday .. Please read the rules and note that the comp closes at 1.15pm on Saturday and scratching replacements can be posted up until 1.30pm. After that only late scratchings will revert to the TAB sub Please read the Rules: 1. Post two selections for each race on the Schedule. You can post the number and the name but I will only take note of the number. If the number of the horse and name of the horse are different, I will go with the number. 2. You will be awarded 5 points for each winning selection. There are no points for finishing second or third. 3. You will be awarded an additional 10 points if your two selections in the race finish first and second (ie. get the Quinella). 4. You have two Best Bets to use. You can use a Best Bet on any race but you cannot use your two BBs on the same race. If you use a Best Bet, any points earned will be doubled. For example if you win and use a BB you get 10 points or if you win and get the Quinella, you can earn 30 points. If any races are postponed then any BB used on that race will move to the next race where no BB has been used. 5. You can post selections up until 1.15pm, 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of the first comp race. 6. NOTE: You can post scratching replacements up until 1.30pm. I will also allow other members of that trio to post scratching replacements for another trio member between 1.15pm and 1.30pm. The trio member's replacements once posted, will stand. If no-one posts replacements then the selections stand as they are. After 1.30pm no scratching replacements are allowed and only late scratchings will revert to the TAB sub. 7. The winning team will be the trio with the most combined points at the end of the schedule of races. If there is a draw on points at the end of the day, it will be a countback on winners of all three in the team, then quinellas, then BB winners, then BB quinellas. If still the same then you share the accolades 8. A spare set of selections will be posted at 1.00pm should they be needed to make up a threesome. 9. Have fun PRIZES $50 W/P bet for each of the winning team members.

    Anyone remember 'Styx' ?

    Thanks to Thee, Sir Gub: for keeping a full set of NZ Racing Registers. Eric Davies was such a great man for racing. As a committee man at Waikato . In his later years he was in charge of the Winning Owners hospitality room.Right by the Weigh In Stalls. Winning owners loved Eric's boisterous congratulations , knowledge of their horse and excitement for their win. He would stop the free drinks then announce "" Your complimentary Video of your win today is about to be played.Courtesy of Revel Somervell. The Sponsor of your race to day was ( say ) The Waikato Times and Peter Henson ". Eric had a mare by Decies called " PRETTY PRECIOUS.'' . She won at Tauranga for our Dad and Eric with Sir Peter Tims steering.My brother trained her.
