The Race Place

Race Place Ownership Changes

Recommended Posts

Pete has decided to relinquish his ownership in Race Place, and has offered it to me.
I have in turn offered PJ and Maxi part ownership of the site, and they have accepted.  They are both knowledgeable and enthusiastic contributors, and I hope people will continue to support the site.
I would like to personally thank Pete for the huge contribution he has made in initially setting up the site, then running it.  He will stay on as a motivated, contributing member, and be available to help us with technical issues that arise
I would also like to thank PJ and Maxi for taking up the running.  It's no fun running a site on your own, and without them coming in, I doubt I would have continued for long

Pete deserves a break. I know the background to setting this site up originally and it took a lot of determination and heart to get it going. Both Hesi and Pete are to be applauded for their hard work and dedication. Great to see PJ and Maxi stepping up to keep Hesi in check 😜 Look forward to Pete throwing out those value runners, it's a learning process.

I'd like to get Cubes joining in PJ's comps, he was always such a character with his 3rd person narrative, but he seems well ensconced elsewhere.

Also no disrespect to anyone, but the best poster I have come across in my times on these chat forums, is Tasman Man, former part owner of Pasta Post and Changeover I think.  He seems to have fallen foul elsewhere, anyone know him

He’s a goose, don’t invite him ffs.

What a crying shame Pete had gone, he’s a good bastard.

Now you, Maxi and PJ and we are just a fucking tips forum,boring as batshit. 
At least Maxi isn’t a Labour poof so that’s a start, Hesi you have fucked up most opportunities given in the past, try not to do the same here.

I think you'll find Pete will play an even more active role on the site

Not gone Barry. I'm just not one of the owners any more.

Excellent Pete, had me worried we would be all sitting in a circle smoking weed and voting for Green Mayors.

Thank god intelligence is still alive and well in Auck and you got a smart centre right person.

You're too kind.

Barry, at least they are both informed, constructive posters, a bit like yourself.  Surely you are not going to tell me you enjoy a stream of relentless negativity.

We all know that racing in this country is no where near what it used to be, but we don't need to be told about it every day.  Not sure how that will solve anything

Thanks for the kind words Sharne. You're always my first pick in the draft comps.

All power to you bud, everyone has their fav site and at least for the duration on here we have all been courteous and dignified(mostly ,ahem)so a large Bouquet for you and your efforts in starting up this site.

Barry, does that make you boring then, being one of our most prolific tipsters. God forbid, ooops sorry.

For my three pence worth Pete has been the best person on either channel that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. 

Pete, thank goodness you haven’t really gone anywhere and whether or not it’s on here or RC, keep up the good work. 

To everyone else, try even harder and make this site a more equal one in every way. 

You will find me posting on both channels but much more often on the other one, because the debate is mostly better. 

Now that’s a statement/challenge so let’s try and make both sites as good as one another, especially this one.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Buller Rep

Yep we are a bit light on racing debate, because we are only a small site

I like to think that it important for a site to also offer things such as the the the punting perspective threads, that provide some very intelligent thoughts on punting and selections, everyone has there own modus operandi.  Also punters clubs, trivia, and other topics such as the music, sport and general chat.

Each to their own, none are mutually exclusive

Didn’t the Auckland Trotting Club syndicate own changeover? 

Do they still run ATC syndicates and offer them to the public?
