Thanks everyone

21 posts in this topic

Just want to say thanks for the continued support of the many thousands of Racecafe members... there has been a lot of untrue statements made about this site elsewhere recently by former participants of little significance here with axes to grind..however we will continue to offer the best site in the country for the topics we cover.

Racecafe is in the middle of a major upgrade for the benefit of all our members and it will be rolled out over the next few weeks gradually so as not to disrupt the site in anyway. The largest competition ever offered on any Racing website will be launched shortly too which will coincide with the the look Racecafe.

I hope you all will enjoy the new features and additions, and would appreciate all your feedback as they start to get incorporated into the site.

Once again thanks for all the continued support and the amount of postings continues to rise as more become members to contribute to the Premier Racing Site in the country. All the best

I Love this forum.

I contribute  on RC with some token sponsorship as you well know.

I have very strong  personal Views about :

                   Stallion Service Fees, agistment costs and non claimable GST for a private owner.

                   Paying a jockey in advance for a  race ride. It is a contract for delivery. The owner of the horse has the right to withhold payment for poor service.dont they ?

 I have a view point  about

Training Costs,

The RIU

Jockeys  

The thing that absolutely shits me , Leigh is   personal attacks by Race Cafe's with a  fancy non de Plume .

Like who is this  "pound for pound " ?

Leo Melloy ?

 

Good  men like Chris Wood, Ted (RDTY) dont hide. When they post their opinions on here.

What does it matter who I am.....at least I’m intelligent, educated, coherent, and I’ve “been there and done that”  ...... that said the uneducated, illiterate, mentally retarded and unhinged lunatic fringe like you have a right to be heard too and I accept that, but I usually choose to ignore you.

If it matters I’ve never tried to hide from anyone, in fact my style is so distinctive I couldn’t hide even if I wanted to, unlike you, your style and lexicon could be easily confused with 87% of children under 12 years of age, and you haven’t had an intelligent thought or contribution to Cafe for a long time, so you’re largely irrelevant and considered harmless, in the same way most intellectually diminished mental midgets are harmless.

I’m rather surprised you don’t know who I am anyway, most Cafe readers with an IQ greater than the 90 day interest rate know exactly who I am, and I guess the fact you don’t kind of sums you up.

Double your meds fella, learn how to do up your shoe laces, and to spell.

I’ll close by saying I enjoy your brother’s company, I like him a lot actually, but then again Mark Spitz’ brother couldn’t swim a stroke and drowned in the bath.

Hi Rev. Very rarely disagree with you but must take you up on your views on Jockey Fees. In my opinion they deserve their $165.20 fee plus 5% of the stake if they win or place. If you are not satisfied with their ride you change riders next time.

Every New Zealander pays GST that they can't claim.

Yes, but they are not suppling a product for people to use and then they are not able to claim back the GST charged in creating the product! 

THINK ABOUT IT!

Register for GST, then you can claim it back.......and pay tax on your stakes or if you sell your horse.

A better solution, and something I’ve tried to get introduced, is for the NZRB to pay all costs of Racing as an above the line industry expense, then there’d be a slight reduction in stakes but float fees, noms, acceptance fees and riding fees would all be free, there’d be no GST, and the industry would save millions.

How have you got on with this? Make good sense to me.

It was undermined by Goodson and Purcell initially, they didn’t want any free Racing, then I tried to get it through using the Trainers Assn but they’re fairly ineffective and they almost certainly lack the intellect to see the benefits.......I do talk to PETONE quite often so I might raise it again, or I could do it through the National Party and make it a part of their manifesto for the next election .

Leave it with me, I’ll report back

That's the trouble Aaron I think. Makes too much sense. It would decrease stakes slightly but add more than is lost in return to owners.

And it’s very fair because every person providing the “product” benefits, and it’s also likely to increase participation, runner numbers, and industry revenue and profits....in fact if it increases the average field size by 0.7 runners it becomes self funding.......but as I said there are so many intellectual retards in this game who cannot understand the benefits.

Well something needs to change, i'm on my last round in the ring unless something happens. 

TAB should run a book on the % of class A & B trainers that will not be renewing their licence for the 2018/19 season.

I know of at least 5.

How much rubbish can we expect at the end of the season when NZTR annual report comes out and will  those who need to reapply for board positions get put through the proverbial ringer. The thought of Victoria running the place is scary to the limit IMHO.

We have got a Victorian running the place already!

I don’t know what he has achieved though?
