    I agree with Kevin. It's not just the Breeders Crown either , it's all our big races. HRV keeps increasing the stakes for big races and more than half the money goes to NZ. I would like to see big race prize money frozen and normal race stakes increase for 4 or 5 years . This would spread the money more evenly and stop so much going to NZ.
    Don't die wondering !

    Mark Purdon makes Australia look like mugs again. I bet he is cross about Itz Bettor To Win running second and costing him a clean sweep in Vic and NSW

    Just a rough calculation, M Purdon has won races worth $2,500,000
    in Australia during January and February.

    Probably once again rueing a 2nd spoiling perfection LOL
    We are talking about 2 countries worth of horses and trainers
    Cannot think of such domination at this level in any code and as we know it is a somewhat regular occurrence.
    If he did not have that little Blue on his record the world would be spruiking him as a contender for greatest horseman of all time

    I sometimes wonder whether MP is the only person making Big money out of harness racing

    Quite right Kevin but at least Western Australian harness racing put a stop to that with Chicago Bull in the WA Derby beating Let's Chase The Dream on its merits and he's one of Purdon'/Rasmussen's top horses having beaten Lazarus twice. We obviously have to try a little harder or alternatively, something stinks in the state of Denmark.

    Reading that Dairy prices in NZ have fallen by 50% in 2yrs. I am now sympathetic to any raiders who have a dairy farmer in their ownership. This one looks like he needs a bit of love

    Share the love Kev, Aussie cow cockies aren't sleeping easy atm either.


    Maybe with this new found recognition of the grass roots participant HRV, at least, should follow Sheed's lead.

    Or Cody might be able to wangle Vaughn Lynch a subscription to the Weekly Times? Not sure if Vaughn brought up the tiered system over scones and tea during his rural tour.

    Of course they do the same in NZ - I cannot think that it can be good for NZ either
