    Just resting after a 125k return trip to Willaura bakery so that I could have one of the world's greatest lamingtons for lunch - hmm, you might be right about having too much time on my hands.

    There is definetely something not right as just compared prize money and Nsw is the best, so you wouldn't think that stables would relocate to race for less money.Can understand that they may take certain horses for the country cups etc but the whole stable?

    Are you referring to the Mollander stable Brian? Are they a serious trotting gait stable? Could HRV's objective to have 30% trots races also have something to do with it?

    Molander has pacers as well. Poacher to name but one.

    As for just taking one down for a few months and leaving the rest in Sydney, someones still got to train them back home, think of the extra bills. Might be a bit different if you are a big stable but for the the smaller 5 or 6 horse stables I would say it is too costly to have multiple stables and staff.

    Rocket Glenfern, Tudor Royal, Manaroa,
    Also, most of the Molander stable horses are owned in NZ, so it does not really have an impact on where they are located.

    I think property prices may have played a large part of this decision. Another reason why Menangles barn complex will be popular (if the rent is reasonable of course)

    Probably more the Rattray stable.

    3)use only one concession either concession driver or mares but cant use both
    4)add drop back clauses in races like-C2C3 also eligble C4 won less than 1000 last 4 every race should have a drop back clause in it to give out of form horses more options
    I'd have to agree fully with every point, there's a lot of people who would like to see it go back the way it was. I'd also add trainers and owners should be able to place there horse/horses in what race they want to put them in..

    I think you're well and truly on the right track here David. Do Victoria have something along the line of selecting the fields from the bottom up in restricted races?

    I don't think mares should get a class and driver let up especially if the race is then preferential draw sex (that's 3 concessions). Only point that I differ on is point 4. If they picked the restricted races from the bottom up that's the concession for out of form horses, otherwise the system then gives the out of form horse 2 let ups like mares have now.

    No one could say that this current system has improved racing in NSW because everyone knows how often nominations are extended for all meetings (it's not the change of season 2 and 3 year olds). We all have the text messages from HRNSW to inform us. How long do you think until someone, anyone at HRNSW admits this just isn't working?
