  1. I think you've hit the nail on the head. It was extremely well run and because it was the only show in town people had to behave. I still remember the day we had at Ellerslie. They managed to get us a room in the main stand and it was just brilliant.
  2. Check out Delightful Lady. I still love that horse. She was special.
  3. Actually thats a great idea Craig. Will get back to you on it. Probably be good to do it on Cup Day depending on who can turn up.
  4. Funny you should say that. Same thing for me. I was 19 years old and working as a claims clerk for a big insurance company and I used to have to talk to this girl from the assessors. I fell in love with that voice. And then I fell out of love when I finally got to meet her. Nuff said.
  5. New Years Eve at the Park would be brilliant.
  6. Maybe we should try something like that again when this madness is over.

    Great idea

    Mid-week trivia

    I think he was injured as an early 3 year old and retired to Stud. That's just from memory so could be wrong.

    Mid-week trivia

    Pretty similar to when he won on Ardri. Horse used to always drop out long last and then run on but somehow in this particular race he managed to boot the old bugger up and he led most of the way. Hard to say who was more exhausted out of horse and jockey. It was peeing down with rain and 8 degrees. I was up in the warmth of Silks eating and drinking. Great memories.
  10. That's as may be but it depends in how it's worded and in these 2 cases it went past what I think is acceptable for the site. This is a racing site first and foremost. There are plenty of other places to express yourself at those sort of levels. This may be a departure from what has previously been acceptable but that's the way it is.
  11. Craig this is not an anti Maori platform. There seem to be both sides of the argument represented here which is fine by me.
  12. Just adding to this. It's perfectly OK for you to express an opinion but when you start playing the man and not the ball you can expect a rebuke. We're not trying to be overbearing here, just trying to keep things civilized. I'm well aware that the subjects being discussed here are very polarizing and everyone thinks they're on the right side of the argument.
  13. Just leave it Max. You really don't want to know the answer.
  14. Is it? I wasn't aware of that. A very ambiguous statement Reece. Care to enlighten me?
