    Did you notice the whimsical turnover without the co mingling. Went to have a quaddie at Flemington until I noticed no co mingling. Rang the help desk to enquire whether the takeout rate will change on the quaddie now that it was not co mingled. My worst fears were realised when after going to his supervisor he informed me it would now be 26% takeout as against 20% if co mingled. Is it little wonder NZ racing is going down the gurglar.
  2. Yes, I thought the track played very fair with winners coming from all angles. Well done to the committee with what looked like a highly successful day, good crowd too.
  3. The more bet types when confronted with a small betting base is tantamount to shooting the pie with a shotgun splintering the pools ever lower, thereby creating a lesser incentitive to betting. How hard is that to understand. Morons.
  4. You know Chief, once upon a time I followed domestic gallops all the time, now I only bet on Victorian gallops, and the odd bets elswhere in Aus. It was the quality and takeout difference that weaned me off the domestic product, and I bet I am not the only one.
  5. Correction Chief, we get shafted on the takeout on a substandard product.
  6. Could not put it better myself, absolutely correct. I have commented on this for years. Did you know that the takeout on a NZ quinella on a domestic race is greater than one on an Australian race even when co mingled. So you can have two people standing in a NZ TAB taking quinellas, one bets Riccarton, one bets Flemington, and the deduction will be greater on the NZ race. It gets worse, a punter standing in an Australian TAB betting on a NZ race will pay the higher takeout as well. This could not be better designed to lower turnover on NZ racing. Unbelieveably stupid.

    Trail?..... how about trial.
  9. Any scratching after 7.30am morning of race is deemed a late scratching is it not?.
  10. Higher takeouts result in falling turnover. More bet types result in falling turnover. Its quiet simple really, but the morons do not get it. The pie is only so big. The more you shred it, the smaller the pools. The smaller the pools, the less attractive to bet into them. The higher takeouts result in less return to the punter, who in turn goes broke quicker, which results in falling turnover. The lunatics in Petone should of been reducing the takeouts years ago, and trimming running costs to increase punter participation and grow the pie.
  11. Great move by the WRC. If the shysters in Wellington had got their greedy hands on it, it would of been sold to developers and probably become houses. And the developers would probably been mates of mates. Hats off to the Club members for putting their community first, a shinning example for other Clubs.
  12. A MUST LISTEN.

  13. Do they drug test Stewards?.
  14. Agree 100% re society today Cocky, could not have said it better myself.
  15. You halfwit, It was water for f#ck sake, doing the right thing by the horse. I know John Luxton, and there would absolutely be nothing underhand happening here. Just a stupid rule that is bullshit.
