  3. My other older brother , Bob Autridge has two starters on a Premier Day at Hastings on Saturday. How good is that ? Bob the near 80 year old ..Will truck down to Hastings on Friday and the locals and Hawks Bay Racing will cherish him. Race 2 Teen Titan (15 FF ) and Race 5.Thunder (18 FF) Bob's son Toby has TOMMYRA in race 1 .Hawkes Bay Hurdles. Track upgrade to good 3 ?? Older horses feeling their legs first time this prep ? Will be a fun Roady Trip for Bob.
  4. So, Sir TED. Maybe you have taken your bride to Wanganui ( no "h" ) for a belated wedding anniversay before heading back North for the Foxbridge Plate ? What an amazing field again this year for what should be a Group One race.. Avantage rates very well to win. She will most likely add her name to the small piece of memoribilia called the Foxbridge Plate. My brother who has trained two Foxbridge Plate winners has assured me His 2023 Foxbridge Plate / Cox Plate winner is still to be found. In 2012 Fleur de Lune won as we hoped and knew she could and in 2015 ? Addictive Habit won fresh up back from Brisbane. Travel safely Ted.
  5. Exactly. right buddy. Several people this evening by phone and txt reminded me it was the 1200m or 1400m start with Grant on board.
  6. And GUB, some of our best jockeys rode for Ray Cleaver. Jockeys that rode Elmar were: Earl Harrison, Warwick Robinson, Chris McNab Brian York,Maurice Campbell and maybe Shane Dye . Ray Cleaver's mum and dad Fred and Ngaire ? retired to a home unit near us in the 1980's . Ray was a tough bastard but looked after his mum and dad and his children.And Sue. Ray told me one day that Joe Bromby and Alan Jones were nearly on his level when it came to being "astute Trainers ". Ray Clever's carefully planned coup with SUPER COMET at TeRapa and the "false start" earned Ray lots of mana ,Kudos. It does not compare to that of Alan Jones and Torbek /Shady Deal . But It came very close. Ray knew what times the Trains would hoot on the Main trunk Line . The Te Rapa Mile start is just 20 metres from the railway line. Apparently Mr George Lawson and his stipes spent days foraging for a Kids Hand held Hooter. Tony Enting may have helped with the searching. s hand held Hooter. Starter Mr Fred Hain did not call a false start. Most riders heard a hooter. Or a Train Hoot. Not Super Comet's rider.Kicked hard from barriers and kept going. I was on the main Side on Video Camera from the tower that day. Jim Lambert Judge. Stipes on floor below. Good on You Ray Cleaver.
  7. Thanks for that Chris and BC Many,many stories and yarns over the years with Raymond. Super Comet and the alleged false start at Te Rapa, Top trainer and great placer of horses. Ray had many "early morning discussions" with Cambridge Track managers including Ray Hawke. Had a very very good but unsound horse by Reindeer, Prancer for the Pollocks.
  8. William Chua just disappeared. Does any one on Race Cafe know where he is ? Terrific trainer in Cambridge. He Built an amazing Home off Pencarrow Road. His Chinese New Year celebrations were invite only. Magic guy. Did he get a concrete gumboot or get run over by a Bullet Train ? Maybe this Jimmy Lai story is connected.? A young Jimmy Lai was a huge client of William Chuas. Please PM me with any news or info. Rev

  10. One Prize One Goal won Race 2 today at Taupo. Lee Somervell and Trudy Thornton combined for their 17th win together as Trainer /Jockey in NZ. This beautiful horse , stable name FREDDY ( who the Trainer labelled as a Group winner to his brother ) developed breathing issues and even ran off at Ellerslie one day at Ellerslie going Right handed. With Dame Trudy Thornton on board. He has never raced Right Handed again. To his great credit his Trainer opted for a parallel career for Freddy. He has become a rest home regular in Napier and Hastings.He walks inside buildings and hospitals. He visits cancer and dementia stricken elderly patients. Nuzzling up close in their final moments. Wheel Chairs,chemical smells, old age smells and sliding doors don't faze Freddy Lee and Shirin's and Trudys win today was another career highlight with their ,race horse Freddy

  13. Congratulations to Bob Autridge, Sylvia Kay and AJones who have all trained winners in the last few days. Our wonderful Dame Sylvia Kay trained Dolcetto to win his 10th race on Saturday. Top weight and all with Hazel Schofer riding him . Then 24 hours later Sir Alan Lesley Jones trained and won with Aquajack on his home course, Caloundra. 1000m dash, out side gate. Michael Cahill, sooled Aquajack out of gates, took trail like he was Linda Ballyntyne and kicked clear. Bob, Sylvia and Sir Alan had their birthdays this last month. Their collective ages plus Bob Autridge's total 194 I have been lucky enough to have horses with all three of the above Octogenerians. ( My brother is not any where near 80 ) Rev
