  1. Thanks for the kind words chief I have no intention of discussing your post other than to say as per usual you have taken it negatively Goodbye please remove me and ban me I’ve had enough of your shit
  2. It would be good if a share holder came on here and advised what they end up out of the sale, which interestingly was no where as much as Princess Coup bought several years ago. $45k a year wow you don’t have much idea, every trip across to Australia would be close to $20k at least with travel, accom, race fees etc Insurance alone on $1m would be close to $40k I think Jamie has done an outstanding job placing his good mares.
  3. Of course it is how many $15k races do you think will be run on AWT?
  4. chief ANSWER THE QUESTION when was the last time you stepped on the course proper at Riccarton? I am there most mornings Personally I think there is nothing wrong with the track when not irrigated close to race day Prime example was when they couldn’t irrigate due to broken pipe. That is the best the track has been since first day of NZ CUP CARNIVAL The CJC plans don’t worry me to the extent it obviously worries you I have never said I will not race on the AWT just that we prefer to race our team at feature and premier days, we will run some maidens on it unless there is a
  5. Don't know about that we already have our own property with a track on it, we don't get any subsidy for having that!
  6. Not necessarily, they are going to be industry days only, our stable and our owners prefer to target feature days racing, have a look at our stakes money won.
  7. No it hasn’t it needs firm underfoot conditions
  8. Thankyou Listen up chief and stop talking shit!! We own and I drive our own floats to all meetings. Over Xmas racing I am very busy but winning races and adrenalin gets you through!! We have a six and a nine horse truck plus 2 x 3 horse trailer floats and we charge considerably less than public transport operators do which in affect is reducing costs to our owners. Personally I prefer not to travel too far these days, but do so for Feature Race Days Such as Riverton, Otago, Cromwell, Ashburton, Timaru, Oamaru, Gore We also support Reefton because the bloke running there -
  9. I don't entirely disagree with all your comments, so how do you fix NZ Racing? 1)increase stakes 2)increase track maintenance what else, try to be constructive, if that's possible
  10. riccarton still has a grandstand, owners area, members area, bars, jockeys room, trainers room, stipes room ambo facility as does trentham There is nothing wrong with the track at Riccarton (especially when it’s firm) don’t believe all the negative shit the chief scribbles. I would think it would be quite some time ago that he last visited the track yet he makes out he has superior knowledge of its racing surface and he does not!!!
  11. Last time I was at Foxton everything was old and in a state of falling down and someone had set fire to it since I was last there All I can say is I watched most races yesterday and it was great to see how rejuvenated some of the participants were, I hope this keeps up, it won’t be easy but some things needed change and thanks to Winston and the PGF we will have three very useful AWT’s despite what you say and think I believe this is a positive for all our industry Do I agree with shutting some clubs down, no I don’t I also don’t believe in bagging some things because certain pe
  12. You’re very observant for someone who “ONLY TUNED IN TO WATCH THE LAST RACE”
  13. The $20million may be the next announcement, you never know
