I can't add to the list sorry, and I do not wish to change the topic of the thread, but, why couldn't Omoto (Greymouth) hold a trots meeting sometime, maybe during the coast circuit? 

I had the pleasure of attending the Omoto gallops meetings recently. First time on track for me, and I must say I was impressed with the facilities, even if they were stuck in 1983, I couldn't care less. Great view of the track, good facilities and the place was clean and tidy. It just seems a pity Greymouth doesn't play host to the trots anymore.

Ranga, so clearly he was into racing all his horses at Greymouth back then!

So 13 starters at Greymouth, really active wasn’t he?

Which one of them won a few races or group race?

I rest my case!!

Brodie why does it matter?  I read a history of the Waterlea racecourse.  100 years of meetings there today.

Guess what all the Grandfathers of NZ harness raced there.  Yep even Purdons.

Chief, why does it matter?

Did you not read the other post where Ranga once again called me a liar!

I said that I used to like the Greymouth harness racing one reason because of the fact that the AllStars horses weren’t didn’t race there!

Ranga called me a liar because Purdon had raced horses on the Greymouth track!

He came up with 13 starters out of all of the races that Greymouth has had, and how many were actually winners out of those 13 starts He didn’t say.

My point was that Purdon did not dominate all of the races and stakes were shared amongst many owners and trainers unlike where the AllStars juggernaut dominate nowadays.

Ranga just wants to be an antagonistic sod!

As I've said before the Purdon family have dominated harness racing over many many decades.  The institutional knowledge that the family has cannot be equalled.  The difference is many of the other dominant families have not carried on their dynasties.   The All Star dominance will not last forever.  I don't see many young Purdon's running around.

Think the original facility at Greymouth was owned by the mawhera corporation, when it was up for renewal they wanted to double the lease to struggling club,they couldn't afford it and that was the end, now it's a barron piece of land with nothing on it, a real shame, both Westport and reefton took their days for the March meetings, and I think they battle with those days, they used to have an open class trot there back in the day, with some top trotters racing, great facilities at omoto, did hold a few pacing races sometime back when struggling to fill galloping fields, not sure why a permanent shift to omoto was never taken up.
