New racing calendar

Recommended Posts

How is the new calendar is going to work in the North with two meetings every week, even with fewer races/meeting? We simply don't have the owners (=horses) up here. I assume more details will be coming out and will be interesting to see if HRNZ has any initiatives to boost owner numbers. However, if their thoughts are to run a distinct 2 tier system with existing stakes at Auckland and even lower stakes than currently at Cambridge, then there would have to be a total revamp of handicapping and race conditions to make the latter viable and attractive to owners.

They obviously have a cunning plan.

Wall to Wall f....n  Greyhounds. Please powers that be give them their own channel  and take " the ribbon of light " and " the chief" common potatoe to call them. Where's Lyin Cluxon he wanted them banned.

Don't forget the extra race meeting at Manawatu, hopefully they encourage more South Island visitors and then stay for a while further up at Cambridge for races, if they do it right  a 2 day Manawatu meet attracts some from South Island , then they go up for the next two or three weeks  at Cambridge and Auckland before heading back to Manawatu 2 day meeting and then back home. You could see these horse run 7 times in just over 5 weeks. That would make owners happy to get a return, especially if the horses are competitive enough. Trainers might have to be open to transferring to another trainer  now and again if they too busy at home base.
