  1. Past hour
  2. Still no balls, still gutless, still sniping. No PM either. Not sure the ageist comment was necessary. A few prejudices showing through now ......I guess a verified, visible target is easy to aim at rather than a piss weak ghost in the shadows. Reveal yourself or reveal your true colours
  3. Silly old fool. try 0800 anger management. Someone alludes to the correct answer and you go all frothy mouthed. You are like a kid who packs a sad so takes his ball home. 😪
  4. Where? To whom? It isn't on the website. I used to get the weekly report but haven't seen one for a year at least.
  5. Totally agree. Only thing I'll add is obviously most, if not all of these horses will not be screwed down 100%. And to be fair, UMC is still learning the game. I just hope he gets away well on Sunday, goes a good race and comes through it ok. Would almost be inclined to keep a bit up the sleeve and just run him in behind and act as a glorified trial. Step it up a notch at Ashburton in the Flying Stakes, then let rip in the Cup. Just a pity he doesn't have a couple of stablemates to assist with some team driving!
  6. they do send out a weekly report of turnovers and starter numbers etc etc etc
  7. BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) winner Furore caught the eye, running on for third in a dirt track barrier trial at Sha Tin on Tuesday morning under Grant van Niekerk. Frankie Lor’s charge has not been seen in action since finishing a disappointing 10th in the Gr.1 FWD QEII Cup (2000m) in April. “I just wanted to give him a little bit of a chance and then run on,” the South African jockey said. “They went quite slow early on so he was a bit keen but he finished off pretty good and I’m very happy with him. He travelled and he finished off so he’s quite fit and he’s a really nice horse to be on.” The five-year-old is expected to return to action in the Gr.3 Cleberation Cup Handicap (1400m) on 1 October, when he will likely meet Hong Kong high-weight Beauty Generation. Furore, a son of Pierro, was sold out of the 2016 New Zealand Bloodstock Premier Sale when consigned by Haunui Farm. The post Furore returns appeared first on BOAY Racing News. View the full article
  8. New Zealand’s three-year-old ranks have proven to be an exciting crop to date this season and that excitement could enhance at Matamata on Wednesday when promising galloper Harlech kicks-off his spring campaign. Local trainers Pam Gerard and Michael Moroney have a lot of time for the son of Darci Brahma who had two starts as a juvenile, including a placing, before impressing with his 1020m trial win at Te Teko last month. “I do like the horse,” Gerard said. “We had a high opinion of him even as a two-year-old. We put him straight into a stakes race where he was a little bit unlucky. He should of probably already have a stakes placing. “He was very impressive in his trial. Obviously it’s only a trial and it is hard to get a line on them, but Cameron (Lammas, jockey) was very happy with him and thinks he is pretty forward. “I think he is a live chance of really being competitive in the three-year-old races and the mile is going to be ideal for him.” While there are big plans instore for Harlech this spring his connections are concentrating on their home meeting on Wednesday where he will attempt to clear maiden company in the Waharoa Transport CO(1995) Ltd 1200. Gerard is pleased with the colt heading into Wednesday, but believes the 1200m is well short of his best distance. “I think tomorrow is going to be a little bit short,” Gerard said. “It’s not a bad little field, but I am very happy with where he is at, at the moment. If he can get a nice trip and be finishing off well, I think he can be right in it.” Harlech has a number of black-type targets ahead of him this spring, including the Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld 4th NZ 2000 Guineas (1600m) at Riccarton in November before his connections weigh up his future. Promising three-year-old Harlech Photo credit: Trish Dunell“He has still got to step up to the mark and get a win under his belt,” Gerard said. “Depending on how he goes tomorrow we will probably return for the three-year-old 1400m back at Matamata in the following meeting (October 12) before heading to the Sarten (Gr.2, 1400m) and then fly down to Christchurch. “He does hold a nomination for the Guineas. That’s the first (major) aim and then we will look to whether he heads to Australia or carries on for his three-year-old season.” A $100,000 Karaka yearling purchase by Michael’s brother, international bloodstock agent Paul Moroney, Harlech could add some more excitement to his sire Darci Brahma’s three-year-old crop. The Oaks Stud stallion is already have a dream run with his dual stakes-winning son Catalyst who heads the 2000 Guineas futures market at $1.90 with TAB bookmakers after his impressive 3-1/4 length win in the Gr.3 Northland Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) at Ruakaka on Saturday. Meanwhile, Gerard is also looking forward lining up another exciting prospect in the form of O’Reilly gelding Glenhope. The Kevin Hickman-bred and owned four-year-old won on debut at Matamata last month after two impressive trial wins at Te Rapa in July and Gerard is hoping he continue his winning form. “It was a nice win on debut and he trialled up very well,” she said. “He is a big, raw, green horse and by no means has he sorted it out yet.” Gerard was weighing up whether to line-up Glenhope at Hastings on Saturday, but said it was more than likely he would take his place in the Transport Mechanical Waharoa Ltd 1400 at Matamata on Wednesday. “My gut feeling is just another run on his home track, just to get him doing things right, might be the best option,” she said. “I know he is going to go a long way, but mentally we will just get him in the right place.” The post Home track test for exciting three-year-old appeared first on BOAY Racing News.

  9. Today
  10. Yes I see, was getting my Cheviot mixed up with Methven.
  11. No anger here. You’re not worth the effort. No PM, no balls. I would like to know your identity. Keep it on the black book. But being a gutless sniper from the bushes, the last thing you will want is to reveal your spineless self. Integrity -zero. Credibility-nil. Says everything about you. What a joke you are
  12. Kevin Court trained watch me fella was very smart young horse he drove
  13. Nah Ashvegas is way closer. Plus the bonus of an all weather track lol
  14. Geez even under Purcell we got some information. When was the last time we saw some data? Have they dropped the KPI's that they were measuring completely? Saundry makes Purcell the epitome of openness and transparency!
  15. Frankly i hope they decide to sit off the pace with UMC. I would love to see the after burners go on in the last 200 because after watching his races so far he will look like a Bugatti Chiron. The pace of this horse is something to behold . The AS are going to have to negate his speed somehow, and thats why sitting just off the pace (if poss) gives him a good chance of running past them. You wouldnt want to lead from there, the AS will attack you all day. Harness needs a new kid on the block , I hope this horse blitzes them .
  16. I am sure that the Auckland Racing Club thinks NZTR are doing a great job Freda as they propped up the Magic Millions by the tune of $500k
  17. Yeah, well, I'm as pleased as anyone to see him about to move on - but it is a big stretch to lay the industry's ills firmly at his feet alone. The whole operation has been trending downwards for far longer than his reign, adeptly assisted by NZTR in all its various clothes. And we still have officials and industry personnel who think NZTR are doing ' a great job ' .
  18. Isn't Rangiora closer to Methven and still have grass track?
  19. Unless UMC is one out of the draw (and I really hope he is) I think we will see the same old lead trail all stars control the race....but hope I'm proven wrong.
  20. Time flys can't believe he was 80. A name I always remember seeing in the south and the horse I always remember was vita man, I regularly had my $1ew on it or it would always be on a double ticket. Rip
  21. True, but there is possibility of excitement. Imagine if UMC won! The grandstand at Ommers would erupt!
  22. Neither did Glenda Hughes who appointed him and same with Nathan Clown who appointed Hughes.
  23. The hannon looks a dead set all stars trifecta to me. They simply are better than the rest.Only way that doesn't happen is if they break at start. Spankem looks a good thing.
  24. Poisoned Chalice as it was for Allen. The biggest and only mistake was he listened to who was still employed and didn't sack them. Fair enough he bought his own crew in but even they couldn't cut out the rot. Requires someone to come in with the hatchet and carve the rotten wood out.
  25. Frankie Lor Fu-chuen and Zac Purton are one of the most dependable duos in Hong Kong racing, so it’s only appropriate they are joining forces at Happy Valley on Wednesday night with the aptly named Reliable Team.Since Lor joined the training ranks at the start of the 2017-18 season, the two have combined on 110 occasions for 34 winners at a sensational strike rate of 30.9 per cent, while earning a top-three finish 68 times (61.8 per cent).Even if you did no form and just put HK$100 on each one… View the full article
