No I am not like Hesi or Craig and Labour voting haters of people doing well.

But geez this sort of money for a horse race in the current economic climate is sick, suits the very wealthy & no one else.

 

 

Perception is what counts as I understand most or all of the stake is funded by the participants

In NZ we have the same issue with the 2 Karaka Millions races........then the TAB needs a Govt bailout, go figure

Regardless, it is perception that counts, and it is not a good look, but the glitterati are not concerned with that 

By the way, do they always have to pan the cameras to Fenton Ellis every time MB wins.  At least they had the good sense to pension her off and replace with a younger vibrant Emily

a younger vibrant Emily

yep she's younger that's for sure

Problem is, that Emily is too closely connected to Te Akau, and Te Akau are too dominant in a sick environment. NZ racing needs Te Akau so they call the shots ..so we get cringe-worthy focus on a Te Akau jockey who can hardly speak English, and countless slo-mo replays of KFE feigning shock and surprise that MB has won another Grp 1 here after being brought back from Oz...in the meantime the reals stars of NZ breeding and racing  - Verry Ellegant and The Chosen One - who arent Te Akau 'products  -are apparently lesser lights

Fair comment

At least she is a layer or two removed, compared to when granny KFE was fronting 

No disrespect to grannies or KFE, but when you want to promote your product(racing), to the newer generations, you don't use a granny image to front it

for me it aint about looks or age ..its a 'too close' world where a dominant player in essence buys regular and favourable coverage. while the rest of the players struggle for attention
