On Track Talking

The NZ Harness Racing Trainers & Drivers Assn. has been approached by the RIB and HRNZ, voicing their concern at drivers talking and laughing during race preliminaries and pre-race assemblies, suggesting that such behaviour reflects badly on the professionalism of participants.

When you’ve been involved in various ways in a job for more than 36 years, or about half your life, it is a bit of a wrench to give it up. However, for a number of reasons, I’ve decided that it’s time to call time on my time as Secretary of the Trainers & Drivers Assn, as I have no wish to simply hang around until I’m not capable of doing a decent job anymore.

Sapere Reports

There has to be questions about the value of the recent Sapere reports that were commissioned to investigate the viability of racecourses in Southland and Canterbury. I have no idea of the costs involved, but judging by the results to date, on the face of it, they appear to be too high.
