Blue Cod, Whitebait, mussels oysters. They know how to look after owners, trainers and jockeys not take them for granted

Does the Supre saga have anything to do with your teams non appearance at Ascot

 We generally have no trouble winning races at Otago, Timaru, Kurow, Waikouaiti, Omakau, Reefton, Trentham or Gore so our horses race at those venues INSTEAD of Greymouth.

Given the length of travel, how often race meetings are canned and the stakes involved not going to Invergiggle has never been an issue for us. Recent racing along with racing at Riccarton 13th and 21st Feb, Otago 29th Feb. Ricc 5th March, Ashburton 12th  then Wellington 14th March will keep us busy enough without going to Southland, that's for sure!

We support racing on Southland's best surfaced track Riverton which is professionally run by a very good committee. Tha'ts why the Riverton Cup is a Listed Race and the Invergiggle Cup is not.

I do congratulate SRC for putting up the money for the Guineas and Cup and wish those going there that they do in fact get to race and compete well.

As you say plenty of races up your way at present, why incur float fees. Invergiggle should close, Riverton stay I say, or better still Invers race at Riverton

Need to address the dual code status of the likes of Timaru.

Large harness use and considerable thoroughbred training at the venue.

SC Hunt club also race there and I see in the submissions by NZTR they exclude Hunt clubs from there assett snatch.

Confused.....

Hunt Club hasn’t raced there for years........

Track actually looks in great order considering all the rain they have had down there.

Agreed, rain for monday tho, could be some form reversals for those backing up.

Certainly some interesting riding tactics in the cup, charge of the light brigade, first two home had economical runs most of the trip, what could one say with a one race taking the prize, good on them.
