Anyone home BGP??

Most of the BGP gang don't care too much for internet chat rooms these days. They think they all ended soon after the introduction of bookface and twitters.

Where is Nerula?

What a great opportunity for the Owners Federation to finally show its teeth. Time for the poor owners to get paid a starters incentive , by the clubs for providing product.

Owners Get Paid!

Owners Get Paid!

Owners Get Paid!

"Go the Poor down trodden Owners" 

Surely we can get a Polo shirt out their and hang a flag up at Ellerslie and get looked after?

Just need someone to get off their arse and do it. , stop complaining about the people who have and make some noise themselves.

OGP Would be a great venture, but it does take a lot of time, patience, love for all not just their self, like most racing people do, care about themselves not the game..

not saying you are, just someone needs to do something and stop bagging the doers!!

 

Polos are a start tho

I have read all of the above posts and given this matter considerable thought.  Boys Get Paid must be welcomed to the course, any course.  They should have their own area to boost the sense of camaraderie.  I suggest that lounge at the top the public stand at Tauranga, Beecher's Brook lounge at Te Rapa and the top of the Ellerslie Stand.  They are to get a rebate of 3.5% of all on-course turnover, in excess of $12,000 in THAT area on race day.  The $12,000 threshold gets the club to recover its fixed expenses.  The printouts from the TAB make the rebate calculation simple.  Clubs hosting Boys Get Paid should keep their totes in those areas open, after the last race,  until the demand for bets gets low.  Once the Boys are phonged up on grog they will bet big.  An eftpos machine handy could well pay for itself, because they will be seeking extra working capital at that time of the day.  But do not charge them a fee to use the eftpos machine.  That is the sort of thing that really irritates blokes with a few drinks on board.  The 3.5% rebate will encourage the administrators of Boys Get Paid.  The noise they created on Karaka night at Ellerslie was great.  People who know they will spend a lot of time in a pine box so they must make the most of every moment on earth before they are interred.

I have seen the TAB printout for a day that Boys Get Paid were set loose.  Total on course turnover was $118k.  Boys Get Paid's lounge accounted for $71k of that sum.  They do give it a lick along.

I will bore you with a story about a bloke who used to run Crown & Anchor nights for the local squash club's building fund.  He instructed the croupiers that when a punter first came to the table they were to make a mistake in the change;  give him three $5 notes for a tenner.  Give him three $10 notes for a $20 note.  It stuffed up the punters' brains and the squash club ended up getting the lot.  Punters, like Boys Get Paid, are a weird lot, and they must be encouraged so that they have a whale of a lot of fun spending plenty.  Easy bet sales people must all be female.  They should wear low cut tops and display adequate cleavage.   Flat chested sales people should wear a skirt that accentuates their lovely butt.  Women with neither attribute should be operating the dishwashers, out the back.  My comments may be considered cynical, but I have observed punters for more than half a century.

Wowwee

How about some of our Ladies of racing get together and start up a Girls Get Paid group in direct competition to the Boys Get Paid?  :rcf-thinking-1::rcfe-like:

Wouldn't that create some interest and excitement on race day! :rcf-in-love:

If there is a copyright on the name we could call them the Girls Get Laid ? :rcf-laughing-2:

Here is one down your way for you to pop along to Swoopa:

AWAPUNI SIRES PRODUCE DAY 30 March 2019

Turbo country’s time to bring the energy.


 Sires Day Saturday 30th

One of BGP’s original favourite race-days with the 2yo Group One Sires. 
The Manawatu BGP lads are putting together an event for where BGP all started and my word you’re getting some value here.

The Day’s Plan

Breakfast with the best  
Join the Little Avondale (LA) Stud team of Sam Williams along with Bevan Sweeney for a coffee and a bite to eat while we parade some horses and get some insight into the best bets for the day.

The Big Go - The Courtesy Ford Awapuni Sires Produce Group 1 raceday.
- 5 sponsored drinks (sponsors TBC)
- Subsidised drinks all day
- Lunch
- Interviews between races with some local trainers and jockeys
- On course BGP punters club races 2 – 8 featuring guest selectors
- Band after the last until late

Tickets are only $102 with $50 of each ticket going into the on course punters club so everybody has an entry. More punters club tickets can be brought on race day.

 

The Manawatu Racing Club will also kindly donate $5 of every ticket to the BGP Foundation.

Bonus Bet
 Love a bit of ?
Friday 29th
If you’re in town, The Central Districts Trainers Assn are running there annual Ambrose golf tournament at Palmerston North Golf Club. Teams of 4. Booze and food included. Team numbers are limited and this does generally sell out so contact Michael Sheridan ASAP if you wish to enter a team -he will provide further details.

Friday Night the Gold Cup Festival continues with the Manawatu Trotting Cup. If previous years are anything to go buy this is a great night out. We haven’t organised an event as such here but there’s a tote, a bar and some decent harness racing so you know what to do…

 

 

Thanks for the info Ted.But I was hoping one of the BGP team could answer my simple  questions on this thread!

Cheers

I don't understand how anyone can knock this group . They need all the encouragement they can get .

Or are some forums full of grumpy old people looking at all the negatives ....

Agree...anyone who can get excited about the game in its current state, generating turnover and can introduce new people to NZ Racing is to be encouraged and applauded.:rcfe-like:

Because we all know its fucked! ........and I get no confidence from NZTR with its overpaid ex NZ Post rejects steering a rudderless ship into oblivion at the cost of millions a year to the industry ! :rcf-monkey::rcfe-angry:

P.S When a maiden race is worth a $30,000...My outlook will be very different as we could all afford to own a horse each! :rcf-in-love:

Wouldn't this be illegal ?

Like paying a jockey to lead and ensure a fast pace so your horse could benefit from that ?

55 second challenge at MV , same thing I suppose .

Epsom Dash on Derby day down fastest five furlongs in world had and may still have decent bonus for breaking record .Stone Of Folca stopped clock at 53.69 for the trip in 2012 and still in guiness book world records .Got to wonder what a decent Aussie/US sprinter would tear down track in rather than a UK handicapper.

It’s against the rules of racing to set a slow tempo that jeopardizes other horses chances and safety.....but every Saturday it happens......every fxxking Saturday......

Don’t see a problem as long as the trainer and owners don’t mind their horse being used this way and everybody including punters know which horse or horses are going to try and beat the clock.

Hats off to these guys for giving it a go and getting a  following.Can the BGP boys join the dots on the following so we can clarify the if,but and maybe doing the rounds!!

(1)Will you be at every meeting in the near future? Or just Saturday meetings? Or 4/5 times a year?

(2)If certain clubs are willing to pay a percentage, how much will you be asking for?

(3)How will this club percentage be used by BGP?

(4)Where would you see your percentage coming from the amount of revenue  or turnover?

Thanks in advance and good luck with BGP

I know this was a while ago,but come in BGP or Ted maybe could answer these simple questions!

Cheers
