    Okay here's one for you smartypants: Name this track in the photo. Clue: The granddam of a stallion who has stood at Arrowfield in my time here won at this course.

    Covid-19 update

    Just my opinion but I think the Racing Industry here in Oz has taken the right approach. Attempt to keep going while strictly observing all protocols. Sure turnover has taken a hit with pubs, clubs, TABs being shut but immediate stakes reduction in what was already as healthy industry can be sustained. There is no reason whatsoever why the breeding season should be interrupted from an operational standpoint. A reduction in service fees for most stallions will reflect belt tightening due to business downturn among broodmare owners. I fear for the industry in NZ. On the negative side it will take months (3-4) to get horses racing again even when the restrictions are lifted. It will cause many training operations to go under and field sizes will be minuscule (poor betting platforms). On the positive side this might force the government to give the industry the total revamp it was begging for. Ditch RITA on whatever its known as, contract out all betting to some professional corporate (SuperTAB, Ladbrokes etc) and leave the hierachy (trimmed dramatically) to just concentrate on making racing work. We (our company) are lucky this has occurred when we have No.1 status in the breeding business and could afford to withdraw from the Sydney Easter Sales and control our own destiny by selling our desirable product on a private treaty basis. It's worked well for us. Apart from the protocols which are easily observed it has worked well with regard to practical operations on the farm. Theoretically the heavy-handed approach NZ has taken to the virus should see them come out of it sooner than many other countries although their borders will need to be vigilantly managed. The fiscal cost though could be staggering and take many years to recover from. But everyone is pretty much in the same boat.

  9. sorry didn't check the scratchings R1 now #6 scratched replace with #2
  10. Robert, my apologies for making the change. I am so pleased it didn't turn out badly for you. Just check back in these troubled times before you make your selections post. It's a very rare thing that I change the races but these are tricky times.
