So the Deloitte report was pushed aside because the author didn't engage with the NZRB prior to submitting it.

How does that “illustrative or indicative” report look now Glenda?

Sounds to me the report was spot on and the NZRB's research was rubbish.

Good going industry destroyer...

‘Desktop exercise’

In a reply to a letter from the then NZTR board chairman Dr Alan Jackson, NZRB chair Glenda Hughes described the Deloitte report as “a desktop exercise which did not engage with NZRB or draw on the most up to date data.” That meant it could only ever be “illustrative or indicative.”

“Many of Deloitte’s assumptions vary significantly from NZRB’s.”

Hughes pointed to the KPMG report which concluded the assumptions on which its fixed odds betting business case was built were conservative.

Hughes also took issue with Deloitte’s reservations on punter numbers and activity.

“NZRB has demonstrated a strong capacity to acquire new customers and very deliberately manages the positioning of its tote and fixed odds products.”

On outsourcing, Hughes said various reports made it clear there was potential value in it longer term.

“The board accepts this but there are significant risks, including loss of control, which will require careful management.”

Allen was also very critical of the Deloitte report, and said it did not do enough research into the fixed-odds platform.

“In our view they have significantly understated the value we are going to create from this,” he said at the time.

So confident was Allen and the board that the initiatives would immediately boost profits, they decided to increase by $24 million the payout they would make to the racing industry over the next two years.

Neither Hughes nor Allen survived on the board to see the disastrous outcome.

So the dystopia continues, we are managed by people incapable and uninterested who take these positions with a view to retirement. Hughes and Dore would be the latest additions. A dad's army of bluster and nonsense. Oh and that's before we even start on the board..

For the life of the sport can we get someone young, forward looking, passionate and keen to engage who would know what one end of the shit shovel looks like.

I see M Dore as the only positive in the ranks of the NZGRA. He is not in the same boat as Hughes whom would be much better utilised in the womens refuge.

I've only had one chain of correspondence with Dore. Let's just say it didn't leave a good taste in my mouth whatsoever. I quickly learned that integrity was far from his depth.

This was the initial email I had sent to Dore and copied in Hughes (whom did not respond).

 

Hi Michael,

Can you please explain to me how an admitted breach of 62.1 (i) is fined under the minor infringement table by the RIU?

https://www.grnz.co.nz/catch-the-action/13738/stewards-report.aspx

Integrity of the investigation/prosecution process is severely lacking by the RIU. As the GRNZ web site now list you as a contact for integrity matter, I’m asking this question to you.

Regards,

Charles

 

Unfortunately I'm unable to share the replies to the email chain I had received to my query, because of the confidentiality disclaimer automatically attached to the bottom of his emails.

I still don't understand how the RIU fined someone under the minor infringement table using rule 62.1 (cc) when the trainer admitted to breaching rule 62.1 (i), which isn't in the minor infringement table because it isn't a minor infringement.

Where's the integrity Michael?

Glenda?

RIU?

JCA?

Winston?

INCA?

Dore never did reply to my final query in the chain...

 

Michael,

Is Mr P Ferguson’s public training license on probationary overview?

Does Mr P Ferguson’s license have any conditions associated with it?

The newest spin doctor has been heard from...

 

Hey Glenda, where's Homebush Connor these days?

https://www.grnz.co.nz/greyhounds/profiles.aspx?AnimalID=30810

We were trying to work out where he was going to retire too a while ago, not long after his final race.

Hughes said GRNZ work closely with its welfare committee, which is made up of a group of independent specialists, with veterinary and welfare experience. 

She said GRNZ support independent research into the health and wellbeing of the Greyhound population and reiterated the independent Racing Integrity Unit (RIU) monitors compliance with all welfare policies and standards for all participants in greyhound racing ensuring the highest standards are maintained.

"We have programmes in place to ensure that all dogs are cared for from the time of their registration at birth, right through their racing career and into retirement," Hughes said in a statement released to Stuff.

"We have our own kennels around the country where retired Greyhounds go to for a full health check and assessment before being adopted out to the many families we have on our waiting lists."
