    Stratford RC

    I'll have a go. The apple was 1.3m. The orange was 940,000? If that keeps up we should only need to reduce stakes by about 30% next season unless we can get punters or taxpayers to pay more?

    NZTR turnover data

    I could ask them. To split it up and give gross revenue data split between FO and tote?

    NZTR turnover data

    Seems they've had a change of heart on releasing this. Good on 'em. Good morning all, Note - Turnover early last year was initially impacted upon by the introduction of the new TAB betting site. Some of the variances to last season’s turnover should be considered in this context. Wagering was up by +8.70% last week with the same number of races run year on year. There were -34 fewer starts overall compared to FY19, FOB continues to trend upwards +37.11% on FY19 whereas Tote declined by -8.16% comparatively. Calendar movements: The meeting at Invercargill on the 5th Feb was rescheduled to Monday 17th February. Commentary: Racing Tauranga on Thursday ran 7 races with 52 starts which is down -21 starters over 8 races last season. Turnover was up +6.99% to 1.11m this season Wairarapa RC on Thursday ran 8 races with 70 starts which is down -2 starters over 7 races last season. Improvements in FOB +63.35% primarily drove the +26.83% increase in wagering this season. Manawatu RC on Friday ran the same number of races as last season with +3 more starters (77). Improvements in FOB +46.95% primarily drove the +21.31% increase in wagering this season. Canterbury JC on Saturday ran the same number of races as last season with +4 more starters (71). Wagering increased +13.99% to 1.18m this season. Waikato RC on Saturday ran the same number of races as last season with -18 fewer starters (73). As a result, wagering declined -4.04% to 2.56m this season. The race with the highest turnover was race 7 at Te Rapa on Sat 08/02, the Herbie Dyke Stakes G1; approx. $501K wagered through the NZ TAB on the race. *All turnover figures are turnover through the NZ TAB only. No export data is included. *No Pick Six turnover is included in this report.

    Avondale Cup

    Good point. I've often heard people say that here. Horses like this that are probably blessed with a higer percentage of slow twitch muscle fibres than their sprinter miler colleagues but still love to race as he appears to and tried right to the line with no more than a few slaps on the neck would be an asset and create some interesting wagering events which we surely need. At the moment they are sports horses or dog tucker. Shame.

    Avondale Cup

    Why shouldn't they? He's not preventing any higher rated horses from starting. I note that he ran as good or better last 600 than almost half the field. If there's an issue for me it's why are there no opportunities here for maiden stayers in their own class?

    Avondale Cup

    A 1 1/2 mile maiden would possibly work but they are hard to find here. Missed the kick and finished on well that trip in an R82 last time.

    Time between races

    This time of year you could run a 6 race industry meeting after work @ 25 minute intervals, say 5.30 to 7.30. Racegoers could be home or out for dinner by 8. Weekend meets could run an 8 race programme from say 1 to 4. No need to deal with horrible racecourse food for lunch and home in time for a few beers and dinner before the rugby. Can't really be that hard. Still can't find any rule preventing jockeys weighing out a race ahead Freda though if they are engaged in the current race they can't because they would be changing their gear (colours at least) after weighing out?

    Time between races

    I think it's one of those things where anything positive that might increase overall participation and revenue is likely to have an immediate cost to some participants but I think we have to figure out how to manage that if the change potentially has a longer term benefit even if it's a while before that filters through.

    Impact of weight

    They create wind resistance too with those cups so it would be hard to work out which factor is slowing the horse down wouldn't it?
  15. curious

    Impact of weight

    Yeahh .... interesting eh. Something like K.E. = 1/2 m v2 ? The problem is that if you apply that to racing, and assume that v is the speed for the entire race and energy is limited or maxed out for the whole race, you get the idiotic relationships between weight and distance that bear no relationship to weight's effect on actual race performance using data from real races. Nice theory though.
