    Waikato trainers Ruakaka/Hastings

    an interesting point...probably true, but equally true (?) to say the Waikato/Akld trainers wouldn't survive without Ruakaka and Hastings tracks to race on. At the most recent Ruakaka meeting (mid May) the track was in the best nick ever!

    Congrats Wiremu Pinn

    He is showing maturity and tactical nous beyond his years ...he is going to be riding a LOT of horse over the next three months and will quickly rise up the ranks. Good luck to him.

    If youwant to back the jockey ...

    update: a winning double yesterday at Riccarton (one hotpot, one at good odds), so: 3 wins from 63 rides in May so far. (plus 7 minor placings) May strike rate (SR) 21 (c/f Season SR: 9.00 coming from 110 wins from 990 rides. Since 1 March: 27 wins from 286 (SR: 10.6) Having won 12 races in March and 12 in April, and only 3 this month (2 of them yesterday if you believe in the law of averages or swings and roundabouts, Sam should win at least another 6-9 races in the next two weeks.

    no doubt you and CJW will be hoping Sam's horror run continues... CJW the only one with a hope of catching her, (assuming she does not get injured)

    NZB May Sale today

    Spot on, LZ re maturity, track, training methods etc ... From my calcs, Tavistock females have won 24 races this season in NZ so far; 3 wins from 6yo; 10 from 5yo; 8 from 4yo; and 3 from 3yo fillies (Milseain, Cead Mile Failte and Fancy More). Apart from Oaks-placed Milseain, Tavistock's best female performers in NZ are Tomelilla (mostly on a/c of Group 3 win yesterday, over $86k in stakes this year, $130k+ overall, Rating 83); Galaxy Miss (7 wins; over $120k, R88, Stakes placed); Night Nurse (6 wins $120k, R83); others coming through the ranks are Zanyetta (3 wins) and Donna Anne Billy (winner yesterday and now 4 from 22 starts). Strangely enough - and perhaps the exception that proves the rule - a 4yo Tavistock mare, Rikki Tikki Tavi (R81), is Tavistock's highest earning female this season ($89k), having won 4 times, including 3 at Ellerslie over 1200m last summer, all on Good 3 tracks.

    Briliant start by the young man..and he's in the right hands to keep his feet on the ground, nose to the grindstone and eyes on the job!

    Pike runners scratched!

    p4p can you tell me what Pikey might have been giving the pre-race treatment' on race day for ...are we talking some kind of balm for a minor bruise/swelling/cut? A liquid? And given the fact that he's campaigned in Qsld before, why didn't he know the rules? Perhaps the treatment was applied by someone else in the stable and he gets the rap? It does sound like a very minor transgression.

    Japan Races

    My opinion on this is the same as last weeks Kentucky Derby//pathetic of NZ TAB not to supply horse details/connections/form analysis..how can the expect us to bet blind..response from TAB to my email was "fair comment" and pointed me to a form guide within their News and Tips page on website. Hardly good enough. They need yo up their game.
