  1. I keep a portfolio of horses logged into my memory from years of watching and listening. That's how I figure out who to back and not. Do your own work bud.
  2. Yes seems i have. I could mention a few genuinely overrated horses but probably a waste of time on here. Agree with comments on MM,s driver. Not one I would have put on personally but more informed sources made the call. He wasn't himself by the sound of it, so we wait for him to conquer all and sundry next year as a 6 yr old. Cant wait. and Dark Horse is back and has lost none of her speed , so hopefully she can climb back to the top ranks free of injury. Has the potential to be anything.
  3. Can someone please send me the ownership papers for chase Auckland. I have always wanted to buy an overrated horse. Im sure one could make a bit of money off him in the lower grades. What, ??/, whats that you say. he has already won a NZ FFA. F--- me , bargain of the century.
  4. Yeh Gamma, touche ,but being Australian we are used to you guys dribbling out of both sides of the mouth. Unfortunately they spoilt a good arse when they put teeth in yours.
  5. Winterfell my arse. Had MM taken the passing lane instead of wanting to lug outwards Winterfell was toast and would have had MM,s dust in its eyes as it bloused on by. We have drawn badly again in the GSS, but it may be a blessing in disguise as those up front pour it on leaving the swoopers to appear late. Tornado Valley the likely leader in one of the best collection of trotters to run around in a very long time. We can only hope for a decent run in transit. as he deserves a big one.
  6. He certainly doesn't look happy when the pressure goes on.Obviously still a work in progress. We beat him home in the National and given a half decent draw personally, and leaving the bias out I think the GSS is ours to lose with MM. Phil wouldn't take him over if he thought that was enough for the season ,but he is still pinging along and if any horse deserved a big one it is this bugger. Stylish Memphis was the run of the night . Huge effort on that pace from the car park. And another Northerner in Triple Eight impressed me with a gutsy run for 4th, after working hard. He has stepped up consistently this horse and is a welcome addition to the top ranks.And in that bunch also is Mach Shard, a real revelation and once again a Northerner. Roll on next week
  7. LOL. Im talking from a Christian perspective not your Humanistic drivel. Going by your first sentence you obviously haven't grasped the difference between loving discipline and discipline handed out with anger attached, which in the Humanists mind morphs into violence. Capitalism , Neo facism, Communism, whatever, it makes no difference. the problem lies within the human heart. Any way we are getting way off the original topic, so it ends here.
  8. Wrong. Just because times have changed moral absolutes do not. And because the greater public perceive smacking as wrong does not make it so."Spare not the rod" comes to mind ,and society's ills can be traced back to lack of discipline now propagated in our schools and homes. One cannot compare a child to a horse in the first instance, and those "animal" lovers would be better disposed in bettering humanity's position or disposition depending on which side of the fence you are on. We are far crueler to our own kind than any poor horse.
  9. So you are trying to tell us that their is no difference between smacking your child in the correct manner to save him/her from themselves and teach them life skills ,such as there is justice in this world and whipping a horse to make it go faster . Good luck in your world bud.
  10. FFS give it a rest you clowns. Free speech is fine , but drivel isn't. Start a post with some intelligent conversation. And yes I do come on here to see if its worth posting anything only to be confronted by the same circus full of clowns posting personal retorts at each other. Infantile.
  11. You are missing the point Brodie. Wether or not the man is well heeled before or after the event matters not. He puts back into the Industry that he obviously loves,and good on him. Isn't that what all us owners are doing. ? From your statement one could deduce a certain envy because of his success,fueled no doubt by your ad infinitum comments on AS barn domination. And while Rusty does have a point , time will tell if the Industry is bought to its knees finally and all races will be contested by one stable. Till then we will continue to compete for that share of the pie, which I may add would have made a large dent in AS takings but for a little more racing luck.
  12. it was interesting to hear D Butts comments on the type of cart now in use , especially the steel ones that have no give in them and act like a catapult, which we saw at Cambridge.
  13. Yeah, win or lose, its a privilege to have a horse as good as MM. He,s only 5 so plenty of time left to win group ones. The trotting ranks are only getting stronger and stronger, and its great to be racing other horses of the caliber of the AS barn. They need the competition and MM will certainly give it to them. We certainly hope Dark Horse finally comes back to racing,as she has the ability to foot it with them as well, and for sheer top end speed would have the wood on them all. Kinda like Sir Castleton.
  14. Very rare event indeed. Thoughts are with the Legend and his family, it is to soon Ricky we need you back. From memory the only other time it has happened (I think) was Eugene McDermot, who collapsed from the cart during the NZ Cup that Parisienne won. Unfortunately he didnt make it , from all accounts he was dead when he hit the ground.
