All Stars Question

So they have been to Motukarara and Rangiora recently and are off to Cromwell and the second day at Nelson (with Akuta no less)

There seems to be a change in philosophy or is this just in response to the new racing calendar and going to these venues is a one off?

Seems to be a case of placing them to their best advantage and no local meetings. The cleanout will occur shortly so making hay while sun shines perhaps. At least they will all be trying.

Bollinger, no top liner but a big chance after not enjoying grass track at last start.

American Pride heading towards Invercargill Cup which will have a nice stake attached

You mean Purdon & Cullen as remember as per Boxseat annoucement approx 4-6 weeks ago, no N Ras from 1 Jan 22, with no explanation. 

They seem to go by various names these days.

What is their website at the moment? Twitter?

Or it's perhaps got something to do with the fact that both the Cromwell Cups and Nelson Cups are qualifying races for the newly minted Country Championships.

If you've got one on the float, might as well be 3 or 4. 

And there's not a lot else for fit, race ready horses.

That suggests the country clubs might get some good horses coming their way on a consistent basis which would also suggest the new calendar is working.

Eg Allamericanlover and Pace and Pride.

The only questionable thing is where the final is held, Addington isn't it, a touch boring?

Watched only 1 race yesterday. The 1 race where the commentator said well the punter who put $15k on the nose on Bollinger, will need to go get a stiff drink, (after it galloped). 

The Bollinger Special Cuvee Champagne will still be on ice. 

The JD might need restocking.
