But of those 4500 people,how many were from Remuera,and how many were guzzling glasses of Champers like there was no tommorrow,and how many were giggling and having a right royal time on the grass,and how many didn't know the front of a horse from the backside of a horse. They are the good lookers we want at our race meetings.

  11. Just a few points At 4,500 people, that is more than they get at Ellerslie on Boxing Day and NYD, these days It is not a cost saving exercise, and if it is, why will no one step up and say just how much money is saved by racing at New Plymouth. It is about closing 20 tracks, that can then have their land transferred to NZTR, so they can then sell and generate the 190 mil in the Messara report to upgrade the facilities and racing surface at the remaining 28 tracks, which in itself, will not generate more revenue This whole land transfer thing is very much up in the air and likely to be contested, right through to the Supreme Court/Court of Appeal, which could take several years. In the meantime, NZTR will have withdrawn licences to race at the various courses concerned, just as they have done with Stratford
  12. Stratford loses traditional Christmas period event to New Plymouth Raceway Jane Matthews07:58, Dec 09 2019 Facebook Twitter Reddit Email SIMON O'CONNOR/STUFF The Stratford Racing Club has lost its only race day to New Plymouth, to the disappointment of vice president Vaughan Keegan and president John Gray. For 100 years it's been the much-loved Christmas event for the town of Stratford - now they've lost it to their northern rivals New Plymouth. The Stratford Racing Club's annual December meeting is its only race day. It has been held for almost as long as the club has been operating and sees thousands of people from the Taranaki region come to town. While the club has not officially lost the race day, they've lost permission to hold it at their raceway and it will instead be run at the New Plymouth Raceway on December 29 as part of the Interislander Summer Festival. "Losing this race day is like losing Christmas day," Stratford club president John Gray said. The Stratford Racing Club's future is already up in the air following last year's controversial Messara Report. It is one of 20 racecourses that will close if the report's recommendations are adopted. Gray said he didn't know what the next 12 months might bring for his club but giving their one raceday to New Plymouth - which already has four events in December alone - was "ludicrous". SIMON O'CONNOR/STUFF The club celebrated 125 years in 2017. "To me it's just another raceday at New Plymouth. I'm absolutely gutted for our district." He claimed there had been no satisfactory explanation from NZTR for the decision despite him requesting a detailed analysis. "There's no logical reason for it." GRANT MATTHEW/STUFF Taranaki Racing CEO Carey Hobbs said it was important to the province's racing infrastructure that the race day wasn't lost to Taranaki. Taranaki Racing chief executive officer Carey Hobbs could not be contacted on Friday to discuss the impact of the decision on racing in Taranaki. However he had earlier said in an email that from a provincial point of view it was important to the province's racing infrastructure that the race day wasn't lost to Taranaki. New Plymouth's raceway is the biggest racing track in Taranaki. It has a public stand and a member's stand and is within walking distance of the CBD. Crowd numbers at the race day meetings often number in the thousands, especially during the week between Christmas and New Year. SIMON O'CONNOR/FAIRFAX NZ The race meeting is a hugely popular local event. Gray said the event in Stratford was a "traditional day" that club members poured their "heart and soul into". Last year 4500 people attended. He said the club had come up with an action plan to make the day a success, as requested by the New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing (NZTR), but that plan did not stop NZTR giving the day to New Plymouth. SIMON O'CONNOR/FAIRFAX NZ It was a perfect day for racing at Stratford Racing Club's December 31 race meeting in 2016. Gray said the decision was explained as one of cost saving. But he said it doesn't cost anything more to have the race meeting in Stratford. SIMON O'CONNOR/STUFF While the race track is used every day, the club always looks forward to its only race day. Gray said it would not be the end of the club. They still have other sources of income. And the club was still be entering horses at race meetings around the country. NZTR chief executive Bernard Saundry said Stratford was one of seven clubs across the country which didn't get their venue's race day license this year. Saundry said they could still host a race day, it just couldn't be at their home track due to the cost. "We can't sustain all of them," Saundry said. "Revenue isn't increasing." Saundry said ultimately it was about making decisions, like choosing New Plymouth Raceway over Stratford. "New Plymouth can run more race meetings in the longer term." He said the loss of the race day didn't mean Stratford was on the track to lose its land. But the club president wasn't sure - he just wants a future for his club. "I'd love to see the day returned," president Gray said. "All we can do is hope." Stuff Facebook Twitter Reddit Email

    Record Turnover HK

    When NZ opted for commingling, they should have steered away from fixed odds. I think a single tote in Australia makes a lot of sense. A single tote covering NZ and Oz will do very little for NZ - as it will only ensure Australian pools are more attractive, and NZ pools will languish - making the transition to betting elsewhere even more compelling. It is the problem with a jurisdiction merging pools with a far stronger racing jurisdiction. Especially if you are then dictated to as to what racing you make available locally.

    Record Turnover HK

    A total of HK$1.71 billion (A$319m) was wagered across the 10-race card, the highest for any International raceday in Hong Kong. “We are more than delighted about the turnover. We could not have expected turnover like we had,” Hong Kong Jockey Club CEO Engelbrecht-Bresges said in a statement. “The interesting part is that the local turnover, even though we had to close down some of our Off-Course Betting Branches, was above last year at HK$1.376 billion (A$257m). "The major growth seen came from commingling turnover, which has been amazing. This shows that our strategy of globalistion, of making Hong Kong racing – with our integrity, with all the excitement, with the deep liquidity in our pool – available to the world, is working. “The commingling turnover was HK$334 million (A$62.4m), which is up by nearly 30 per cent from HK$258 million (A$48.2m) last year." Attendance at Sha Tin was substantially down to 27,965 as many potential on-course patrons opting to stay home with protests planned for Sunday across Hong Kong. “We deliberately were not pushing our attendance. We wanted to be absolutely sure that everybody who came to the races would be able to go home safely because we knew there was a big demonstration on the island and we didn't want to take a risk. We had a lot of in-depth planning for this meeting. “For us to be able to stage this international event when all other major sporting events here have been cancelled, we have demonstrated that we manage what we do extremely professionally, with a real risk assessment.” Australia is planning a National Tote for late 2020 I myself think this is the way to go, many don’t I have heard how the punter will lose the best of 3 totes option, my reply to this is how do you get the BOB if you’re a winning punter and are banned by every corporate Very few options are available to winning punters Hong Kong with such a powerful tote, you can bet into a tote of such magnitude and not expect great fluctuations on the tote so you can still take value not betting fixed odds When Australia go National they really need to advertise heavily and push this option with all they’ve got What a stunning win from Glory Vase Magic Wand was good Moore just had trouble securing a clear passage momentum is so crucial
  18. Smiler has put forward the idea of a Plate knock-out comp running simultaneously with the Christmas Cup for those that were eliminated on Saturday. If enough are keen then I would need someone else to score it as I am at capacity with the Overall Comp and Christmas Cup. What do you think ?
