    weasel57 got a reaction from Chris Wood in How y’all looking now   
    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 ...

    Remember the good old days about six months ago when on a Saturday morning you sprung out of bed and skipped down the hall to the kitchen giving the missus a cuddle and a kiss .Sitting down at the table opening your laptop and spending a couple of hours going thru all the fields .
    You get your bacon and eggs while you put your bets together ew bets done multis done doubles done pick6 done ahh life was easy.Outside the kitchen window the birds are cherping in your favorite bottle brush tree boy they sound great .Giving the missus a little kiss goodbye you wonder down to the pub to compare and discuss your bets with your mates .Happy hour is on so a nice jug of Speights and a few bets life it doesnt get much better for an old digger.
    Fast forward six months Saturday morning you wake up knowing you have a mission you look down the hall it seems longer and narrower you finally reach the kitchen giving the missus a knowing nod. You circle the table and open laptop to tab,yeap click on buffering click buffering scratching click scroll,scroll on to feilds ,network down please click to restart.Click buffering scroll on and on .
    Breakfast arrives, it is muesli, seems that recently my blood pressure has risen sharply and wife says its good for me I can hear those f##*en birds squawking in the bottle brush tree must get the chainsaw out and chop that tree down.Not sure what bets I"ve on decide to watch an episode of Chernobyl to put me into a happier frame of mind to go to pub.
    Walking into pub which has changed hands two nice young chaps who have turned it into a craft beer bar,the tab is gone as takings were down and a Kiosk was put in which doesnt work because of technical problems, Im no technician but I think the axe sticking out of the screen after Bluey couldnt get his money out might be the problem.I walk over to the boys table with my handle that looks like horse piss and whiskey chaser.No one is saying much just mumbling about dont think their bets are on ,network down click on and try again .Its not good seeing grown men crying so decide to go home to watch big races from Wellington..Wife is watching boxset of Married and the First one in the sack on the big tv so watch on small tv in kitchen the big race was so close but no photo finish what were the numbers ?Waiting for judges call ,noooo Sweeeeenys burbling on no call Ahhhhh were did it all go wrong I sit with my head in my hands. Thats all I've got to say about that.

    It’s an old habit that “rubber band” trick. I still put a rubber band around my roll of notes but I’ve got two problems now. Firstly, they don’t make $1 notes anymore and it’s hard to keep coins together with a rubber band! Secondly, they don’t make rubber bands small enough now for my roll of notes!

    It’s all just political paranoia bull shit. Welcome to the world in 2019. 
    I am going by bus from Buenos Aires to Rosario tomo and I had to show my passport to get a ticket. 
    It will only get worse . Soon you will have to present your credentials to have a turd. 
    Its all about money laundering and border protection. Gee I yearn for the 60-70s. You could go to Oz without a passport. Till some wanker in govt decided shit someone is going to sneak into NZ then come to Oz. ( and kill me). Welcome  to the world of paranoia. 
    NB . My Spanish is non existent. Thought I ordered a midi of stout and I ended up with a litre. Thems the breaks. Hope the CIA aren’t watching 
    Gee I’m being paranoid ha ha

    Few things about Thatz David . TAB has him both 3rd and last 7 of 7 last week. Odd stuff really .He ran last .
    More importantly not quite sure why he's being risked again  159 runs , no form nowdays , 13 years old , no chance , deserves to get out alive , giving reasonably hard ride last week , will get no doubt another one this week. Not my idea of sport but up to owner . Someone could say oh well horses die in fields but a lot die over the sticks , is there any need to risk him.
    I will eat some humble pie if he wins , he won't though .

    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.

    Good thing you didn't because they ran at New Plymouth.
    and there was a pretty good chance the Apprentices would go ok in the races you listed - it was an apprentice only day (apart from the two highweight races)

    weasel57 got a reaction from Black Kirrama in 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.

    I don't follow the Aus form and not sure of track conditions but from what i saw last time  Endless Drama should be paying less than Bostonian.

    can this industry pay a higher price than is already being paid? National did nothing significant to revitalise an ailing industry in nearly a decade of power. At least we are seeing real legislative action, led by Winston, delivering on his promise for the codes pre-2017 election; any imperfections in this Bill can be amended over time. ,National is farting into the wind arguing the toss over this 'rushed' Bill; it will be passed, so they may as well pick on another issue -preferably one that they haven't already lost  credibility on.
