  3. They will need to find a much quicker way to inject $$M into Stakes than a repeal of the betting levy phased out over three years producing $3.18m for racing and sports.

    stallion for 2019

    and maybe the high ratio of sprinter-milers winning is showing that the progeny are increasingly throwing more to their sire than their dam. I'm no expert on this...

    interesting viewpoint, and there's no doubt that Tavistocks take time and stay exceptionally well. BUT how do you explain the fact that in NZ this season 36 of 46 wins have come at 1600m or less?

  7. I'm gearing that turnover is down 30% since the new app was introduced in Jan ..is this verifiable?

    Kentucky Derby Coverage

    Mebbe Max moving outwards (deliberately or not) is the root cause. I cant see the stewards' decision being changed now, even in the courts.

    (The) Bostonian (NZ)

    For HOTY I think another factor should be considered: a horse's ability to capture the imagination of the public. MB is streets ahead of TB in that regard as well. Winning one Group 1 sprint in Queensland isn't enough IMO for The Bostonian to leap ahead of Melody Belle for HOTY. He won very narrowly off a perfect trip and rails run. And several of the best Oz sprinters not there..incl dual Everest winner Redzel, Santa Ana Lane etc. I'm very pleased to see TB win for NZ in Qsld, just don't think we should get ahead of ourselves.

    ...and what you 'make up for' in self-professed good looks is easily offset by the fact that you are a total prat.

    Tavi Mac 3yo colt ex Bellaroof by Maroof Wins on debut at New Plymouth in the hands of a female apprentice having her first race ride! From my records the first Tavistock COLT to win in NZ since ATHLETICA won a Maiden sprint Awapuni on Sep 16, 2017 and only the 2nd since EXCALIBUR on December 17, 2016 (subsequently gelded)
  13. My apologies to teammate Rusty that I did not include two BBs in my tips ...was offline after poting for the day and dint see Maria's reminder. Would love to say that bostonian would've been one of them but dont want to ruin my reputation too quickly. LOL

    Marsh starting $600k colt at Caulfield...

    I think the tempting thing is for Marsh/Johnson to be set up in Sydney before Xmas...only query is Danielle's fitness..there is no room in Sydney for half-fit/out of nick/unknown jocks, esp from NZ..so maybe after next summer...

    David Ellis decides to speak out....

    Within the next fortnight there will be a pre-Budget announcement from Min Win which will answer some of these questions. And if it's another of those 'kick the can down the road' announcements with no $$ injection for prizemoney that is sustainable,, and no heads rolling at NZRB...we may as well give up.

    Melody Belle- 3 mio not enough- Really

    My understanding is that VSB is in Oz in the care of Rosemont. There was talk of him coming back to NZ to race here, but they may see no sense in that. Retired to a green place somewhere?
