    And who pays for the transportation costs Warren.
    50/50 animal. 2x interislander trips
    Away for 2 days at a minimum so have to employ someone to keep the kennels operating.
     
    I'd say a $2500 series
    Wins and he covers costs and a little in bank. Runs 2nd a nose and trainer losing money.
    2x addington wins $1440 to winner. Sounds a bit less risky to me.
     
    If owners willing to pay for transport cost sure. Give it a go.remember  50/50 is a training agreement. You want the dog travelled when not financially viable. Step up and pay the way
     
    Thats my thoughts anyway

    When will GRNZ demand they get a fair share of the funding pie from the NZRB?
    Say the dogs produce 30% of turnover but only receive 15% of the funding $$$ as stake money

    And who does that benefit???
    The smaller trainers. They wont have to worry about a cap.
    What about the bigger kennels.
    Less vouchers means no guarantee of covering costs. Which means cash will be spent on fuel and vehicle maintenance.
    Means less money to pay employees alike myself 
    We are wanting to go forward in this industry and we keep taking a backwards step.
    Who would want a career in greyhound racing when no one can afford to employ you?
    How are youth meant to buy a property to start a career in the times the country is in today where house prices are through the roof.?
    Where is this saving getting put into?
    One more group race. Of which only one dog can succeed and one trainer ajd owner combination benefiting?
    I think we need to start increasing opportunities to make a living in this sport before its too late to start.

    mmmyb reacted to Grant R in Affordable Racing thats fun   
    I have interests in a number of horses that are racing and or getting prepared to race and i also breed a couple as well, however I am having a blast at the moment with a syndicate i only have 1% in and was the brainchild of Richardson racing Stables the His and Hers syndicates pitting the ladies versus the men . Its a affordable way of having ownership of a horse and attracting new people to the industry . About 2 1/2 years ago Richie and Rochelle purchased two yearlings from the Karaka sales with a budget of 15k each and syndicated them out for the cost they paid for them with a fixed monthly cost which included training , vet ,transport , nominations etc . It has been a blast with Eprouvez going beyond expectations and winning a couple and placing in others and to be honest could go on with it a bit as a 4 year old . the ladies horse Hashtagfabulous didn't fare as well and was retired however The Richardson's transferred the ladies to 2 other horses A Redwood Gelding and Darci brahma Gelding who are in work as we speak . There was no extra cost associated with this transfer . What it has done is generated approximately 160 people to racing, I'm not saying everyone is new to racing but a great percentage are and having a blast as you can see when the camera pans to stands and sees the many owners of these horses there . 
    A big part of this is the interaction between the teams mainly on social media a bloody lot of borax thrown and given but in the end of it it comes down to a great idea by the Richardson's and there team .
