  1. On the same day, Ruakaka hosted 2 groups of up to 100 in 'defined spaces' with tote facilities, but they were not allowed to leave those spaces to access the rest of the track. The Club did a great job for owners and sponsors.
  2. my opinions on the (terrible) way Aalalune has been placed are well documented. Too many races too close together at too early an age, given her pedigree and racing style. Should have been given much more time to furnish and set for middle-distance campaigns away from hard ground. But its the owners' prerogative to do what they want cos they pay the bills. Wont be surprised to see De La Terre do the same as a spring 3yo. Looks a genuine type. would like to see Aalalune race on rain-affected ground at say Te Rapa over 2000m+ ...mebbe Waikato Gold Cup / Counties Cup horse? but needs to get
  3. Who could resist a trip on a very expensive boat with an exclusive 'live delivery' thrown in?? anyone want the placenta? Scalpel, please, Nurse ,bound to go viral on YouTube
  4. good to see the drought broken for LL ..first win i over 140 starts ...hopefully will win em in big chunks now
  5. NBS move to Te Rapa was a one-off caused by stupid decision-making by 'the powers that be' refusing to include Ruakaka when reframing the resumption of racing during the Covid/insolvency crises.
  6. Well, Mediaworks recently announced they've picked up cricket commentary from next summer. Twould make sense to add domestic horse racing
  7. GET ON is hilarious and informative. Love the show! Highlight of the week for this Mustelid.
  8. Thomass Did you notice the very quick 1200m time posted by Gigolo George on Sat? 1:08:68 on a Dead 5. Do you believe that a wind shift (to a tail wind) in the early afternoon and a quickly drying track explains it?
  9. great memories alright, of Trentham on a hot summer's day and the amazing view of the action from on high, up there in the clouds ...saw Uncle Remus win the Derby from there, too ..
  10. she wanted to find a few more Nazis to kill! Come back, Nancy, we need you!
  11. i was there with you, Nomates .on the upper deck of the public grandstand
  12. ...and didnt Show Gate win on all three days at the Cup carnival one year (early 1970s)?
  13. for the sake of the ignorant (incl me) can you give an outline of the 'incident' to which you refer
  14. Weasel
