Just another thought, Tuepeka are racing I think at Ascot Park on Sunday at labour weekend, I wonder if they have investigated the possibility of racing at Roxburg, where do the committee actually live.?

At one stage there was talk of racing Tuapeka at Oamaru. Just crazy. I wonder if they know where any of these places are 

Assuming that the Tuapeka club still has local committee involvement, the best places to race would be Roxburgh or even Wingatui. But going all the way to Invercargil? How many Tuapeka locals will turn up?

Last week the Gore gallops were held at, of all places, Gore.

This week, the Gore harness races are at Wyndham. I know the powers that be have decreed this, but why?

Gore Racing club don't want them to race there. Simple as that

Have any of you guys done the central Xmas circuit, I’ve always been meaning to go there, good horsepitality ?

Yes and its brilliant. Big crowds at all meetings with emphasis on picnic type meetings for both racing and non racing folk. Pubs are great value as well post meetings and there is plenty of choice.

The reason I haven’t been is I holiday in Nelson at Xmas, and do the two days at Richmond. So maybe plan it better this year?

If you can, base yourself at either Alexandra or Cromwell in the New Year. That way you can go to either Roxburgh Omakau and Cromwell. For example this year Roxburgh was on 4th January and Wyndham at Cromwell on 6th. Check the calendar for this years dates. Great thing about it is that its always warm, even if the rain unexpectedly comes.

If you stay in Cromwell ,trainers and drivers can usually be found at a pub at the mall called the Brew House. Very convivial.

Hope this helps
