See Hydroflow is there. When I think of Hydroflow think of an old friend. We used to do modelling a decade ago together. She was THE HYDROFLOW model. 

She used to wear this bright yellow outfit & was on ALL their posters, promotions. Was a real standout.  

Heres a pic of her (will most likely be from a decade ago), its in the public domain so ok to share.

Interesting if same company they have taken a horse slot. IF same company they used to be at ALL the promotions e.g. Truck show, Big Boys Toys & so forth from memory.

Ok mustn't be same company. Or is it ... ? I wonder ... Thanks for update.

She was such a hottie back in the day, once at Playboy Mansion Party she caught Hef's eye. They whisked her off to hang out with him & his girlfriends at the time in their own private area. We thought, she might become 1 of his girlfriends BUT alas, NO.

Started by brothers Ken and Peter Breckon, who tragically passed away maybe 12 to 13 years ago

HARNESS RACING
SENZ ACQUIRES SLOT IN 'THE RACE' NEW ZEALAND
BY SENZ 6 HOURS AGO
 
 
Sports Entertainment Network’s SENZ national radio platform has pledged to allow listeners to share in the opportunity after securing a slot in New Zealand harness racing’s newest innovation.
 
SENZ confirmed today it had bought one of 10 slots in ‘The Race’ for the next three years – an innovative trots race based on Sydney thoroughbred race The Everest.
 
 
The slot holders will choose and recruit from Australasia’s best pacers to share in the $900,000 prizemoney.
 
The inaugural race will be held at Cambridge on Thursday, April 14.
 
Chief executive Craig Hutchison said SENZ was delighted to buy a slot to support the highly popular industry in New Zealand.
 
“We really believe in the concept and are delighted to have been accepted for a slot in the race,” Hutchison said.
 
“Our audience loves harness racing and SENZ intends to get right behind the concept.
 
“Over the coming weeks we’ll give our audience a chance to win shares and follow the journey of securing our entrant and joining in all the fun in the lead up.”
 
SENZ will take a live call of The Race on the night and cover the lead up via its popular shows Baz and Izzy for breakfast, Mornings with Smithy, Afternoons with Staffy, Drive with Kirstie and Beav, The Mail Run, and its dedicated Sunday Trots show.

Huh, far think it might be. Small world. (Very smart tho of them to have G White at that time as the model). Someone should ask them if they used to have a model called G White. She was a real sweetie.

Know C West too, from same group, back in the day. I see she is the Face of Ellerslie racing now. She knows G White & VLV too. 

Do you think you would approach Mr Breckon, and ask him about G White?

Crap. We dealt with them and even with a large firm we couldn't buy direct, had to go through their distributor. So they lost out selling us thousands of bucks worth of Plumbing equipment.

Just checked and he is under same slot as Spirits owners. So maybe either or, altho most are Spirits owners. 

Do you have any ideas who Aussie Lads own? Sounds like a group of Aussie owners not a corporate. The rest bar Hole in the Wall gang look to be corporates so likely look for a horse.

Before Slot Holders were announced,I was pondering who local identities would be!

Knowing how Steve Stockman has enjoyed A Punt,and Stonewall Stud could be represented with a runner,I expected him/they would be amoung The Ten.

Oh Dear,I was wrong again.
