    Who cares about the Dishlickers unless you're on a night out with your mates.

    And even then, not much since they closed down Hutt Park Raceway.

    Round my way this sort of thing:

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I was led to understood that it was called a greyhound skirt as the hem was "chasing the hair". The guy who told me that was from Tunbridge (not Tonbridge Wells), so I guess its a bit more nationwide in England then...

    It staggers me to think only one of the three racing codes has a presence in Wellington now. A ****-up of major proportions.

    You're bloody right. Though, I have heard they are building a new indoor sports centre on Hutt Park Raceway.

    It is a disgrace that the Wellington Greyhounds now run from Hattrick. I shudder to think where the nearest Thieves on Wheels track is.

    This thread's been drowned at birth.

    The closest specialist track would be Manawatu - there's a meeting there today actually (Wairarapa HRC), but they ran the grass track harness on Foxton a couple of weekends ago, while Tauheranikau had a couple of mobile paces on their holiday card last month.

    Graham "Steel Balls" Bruton was looking to get a couple of meetings on the grass at Trentham, but that idea appears to have faded in the last couple of years.

    My calendar suggests the Manawatu Trotting Cup is on today, with another Manawatu meeting on Thursday.

    I had no idea they'd contemplate running the Trots from Foxton or Tauherenikau. Can't see the point, frankly. If they can't run 'em at a decent profit in Wellington, tacking them onto a Gallops meeting somewhere else is a bit of a cop out.

    I had heard the old Wellington GRC was still looking for somewhere in Wellington for a dog track; though I can't see that happening when the racing industry as a whole is looking to cut dead tracks (e.g. Levin a few years back)
