Counties Meeting Now at Avondale

 

Due to further significant rain at Pukekohe Park over the last 24 hours, and the impact this has had on the track, this Saturday’s Counties meeting has been transferred to Avondale. Distances and times remain the same. The rail will be moved out (distance tbc) after racing there on Wednesday.

Avondale - wasn't that the course they wanted to close and sell as being redundant.      Not yet the new season and already needed.      Masara/Peters/NZTR aren't you all clever!

And they haven't even bothered to race on NZs best course yet!

that'd be silly. Merge Avondale and Ellerslie assets to form an entirely new, asset-rich and cash-rich entity.

Well it seems to me Avondale is the one Auckland track that has no issue racing in the winter , Ellerslie too good to and Counties can't really handle any significant rain or too many meetings . An asset rich and cash rich entity is only any good if they want race in the winter , or maybe dip into those cash rich funds and build a top of the line Strathyar at Ellerslie . ARC is wealthy enough now to do , as NZ's premier club why aren't they .

Why with all the money spent on Counties it's not preforming with all the new drainage. Because we are still adamant at using the old style soil racecourse  and not future proof with the likes of a strathyar that can race on every week. You can only spend money once

Now if NZ's premier club had been a team player this meeting should have gone to Ellerslie , no meeting there for another 7 weeks .

I think you’ll find that Ellerslie wanted that to happen but Avondale didn’t. Who’s better off now?

If they had xfered to Ruakaka i think a lot of horses would have scratched as they require a wet track .

A sensible 'band aid' solution.Shows some maybe new found collaboration and common sense .

But don't see this as an indicator as to the future.

Avondale still a run down facility , few people want to go there , and the weather often worse than other micro-climates of the city.

Horse population getting further away all the time !

So, TM were you there on Wednesday? I was. Weather was beyond shyte but not their fault, crowd larger than I have seen at Te Rapa recently ,excellent (as usual) winter racing surface, very acceptable fields.As for the facility, it will only get a makeover to a reduced capacity stand etc if the Club has some fixture certainty with acceptable stakes.(Plus a governance shake-up of course))

Notwithstanding any of these factors the MOST important is a suitable racing surface that gives punters security and horses safety.
