The Race Place

A nostalgic look back


Recommended Posts

Many of those holiday meetings always struggled for numbers of horses, so took a look back 15 years, at the Dec 27 Taranaki meeting

2006 - 72 starters over 9 races, 8 starters per race, total stakes 76K(6K maidens)

2021 - 102 starters over 8 races, 12.75 per race, total stakes 104K(37% increase, or 2.5% per year)

Hard to get a read on what is happening in NZ racing.  As we know, the stakes are abysmal, but improving, but the number of horses racing, seem to be increasing
