    How y’all looking now

    IMO the most sensible option is for Auckland and Avondale Clubs to merge..the new outfit would be our equivalent of Randwick (racing at Ellerslie) with Counties as the secondary or 'support' course for the greater Auckland area. The critical problem is that Avondale JC don't want to surrender their assets (understandably) and there is an historical 'class divide' or perception of one (as per today's newspaper article). NZ simply HAS to accept we don't have the population base to support tracks everywhere: can current (or imminent) leadership find a way to solve the Avondale problem?

    SO IF THERE IS NO VIABLE CASE TO BUILD NEW FACILITIES, SELL THE COURSE LOCK STOCK AND BARREL AND ALLOW THE PRIMO LAND TO BE USED FOR BETTER PURPOSES IE HOUSING.

    I applaud the likes of Avondale for taking a stand , they have done nothing wrong ... REALLY? THE AJC HAVE SAT ON THEIR LAND/TRACK ASSET FOR DECADES AND FAILED TO INVEST IN THEIR FACILITIES, RETAINING THE BIGGEST EYESORE (IE GRANDSTAND) IN THE INDUSTRY. ..IT IS AN EMBARRASSMENT AND HAS BEEN FOR YEARS...I AGREE THAT THE CLUB CANNOT/SHOULD NOT HAVE THEIR ASSET GRABBED OFF THEM, BUT WHY HAVE THEY ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN? THE SMALL PARCEL OF LAND THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT SELLING NOW COULD HAVE BEEN SOLD YEARS AGO TO FUND A NEW GRANDSTAND ...

    dont be too hard on yourself Baz...the overall point re apprentices coming into their own over winter and the opportunities for young ones starting out with 4kg claims is well made...personally I always look for a horse/jock combo where a 3 or 4 kg claim and wet track and wide draw factors can produce some value ..eg Sarabande and Money Trail at Te Rapa last Saturday.

    Glenda was probably too busy packing her bags for a 30 June departure and/or negotiating her 'exit package' and holiday destination.

    Felaar was ok

    The prolific poster pound4pound appears to have gone suspiciously quiet about a horse called Felaar. Touted as a potential Melbourne Cup hope not so long ago etc etc ... I note that he ran again yesterday at Flemington (contrary to p4p saying he was coming home for minor surgery). He finished a well beaten 6th... ...so come in p4p, let's hear the back story ...why the change of plan? What did the jock say after yesterday's run? Is surgery still scheduled? Still planning on another crack at the Ozzies and European horses in the Spring? For what it's worth, maybe the New Zealand Cup is a more achievable target.
