 Lead in to Aucklands big day on Sunday where it get's it's chance to highlight distance racing in NZ and promote the sport overall. 13 races two heats of the collar with one reserve to cover both heats, 5 middle distance races without managing a c4 or c5 and 6 sprints 3 of them class1.

Had the same feeling about the meeting. Very mediocre. And the 603m boxes are still unusable.

Having the 603 boxes out of action is a blessing in disguise mouse, they are an abortion as far as racing go's. As for the race card on Sunday, just a reflection on the state of racing in the Auckland area, dying slowly. Its a real shame, as Auckland should be the strongest.

Reminiscing:The Great Silver Collar 2001 Raceday

10 Race Card..779m x 2...527m x 6...318m x 2

Silver Collar $15,000.

Pace set by C5 Astro Teddy,huge 20Length lead down back straight,& hailed by Peter Earley as surely he can't be run down this week!(had adopted similar tactics in heat,but run down late by Leo The Lion).Still clear into home straight,when in shadows of post Leo The Lion challenged out wide,Sole Edition came up the middle,and little Aqua Mouse dive bombed them all through on the inner.Less than a length covering first four home,with Astro Teddy 4th.Winners time 47.58.

Silver Collar Consolation was won by Zazz Elle,leading throughout in 47.27..a decent effort,considering failed to qualify for Collar,when 3 Heats were run.

To be fair, there are 4 C4/5 dogs in the Auckland Oaks that would normally be in a normal C4/5 527
