Read about the stats in USA. Apparently 70% of deaths are from Afro- American communities. And not only the elderly or people with underlying issues but fit individuals too.
And Afro-Americans constitute what, something like 15% of the population?:sick:

Any truth in news that the German Finance Minister Schaefer committed
suicide last week?


If not true will be one of the worst jokes we have had.


Correction...….not the Finance Minister of the country but a state Finance Minister...…………

Mike I also watched the afro/ American interview and it was put down to the social climate or less fortunate group being more vulnerable.

Lock-down extended by 2 weeks until the end of April, if i understood the message correctly

Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy

phumelela wont survive this. unless

they need to come to all owners and ask that races be held for stakes that will only be paid over 18 instalments starting 3 months after actual race takes place.

they going to have to got to Jockeys and ask for reduction in riding fees.

they are going to have to shutter many TABS and other betting venues they control.

Even having said that field sizes will be decimated by small owners calling it quits across all jurisdiction.

small breeders gone

small yards gone

less popular jockeys gone.

And still phumelela NHRA and RA are silent. Edcon, EOH and others in a similar boat are publicly communicating with stakeholders. not Racing SA crowd

Frodo on topic Re:COVID - 19 NHA
Disturbing post ito the 'second wave' ..... seems the world is still mostly in the dark re this virus - who knows - and so imo the government is correct to 'hope for the best, but plan for the worst' - however one also has to take note of the figures from Australia where racing is continuing - so one has to ask the question 'why not in SA?'

Ito local racing, I certainly do not know all the facts (as most discussions are seemingly taking place 'behind the scenes' - part of the problem imo) but I think the most important issue here is to try and look after the horses - to do that racing needs to start again ASAP to get the 'wheel turning' again - and I also think (as a temporary measure) that it may be an idea to pool all stakes earned in a sort of 'racing solidarity fund' - to be administered by representatives of all stake holders - this fund to ensure firstly that cost of 'keeping' is covered from the fund - sure some will still be in the same boat - but at least some others will benefit; the idea should be 'survival' as opposed to 'making a profit' ....

I am sure my thoughts are well documented via my daily post on the 35 day lockdown thread, plus my covid daily update.

I am again stealing the post from Sly as its so apt its scary.

"The operation was a success but the patient died"

We have to move in industry to keep alive after the virus.

Racing is a good example via other racing nation's.

The simple question is : have the racing authorities actually submitting plans to Govt to show its feasible to carry on racing behind closed doors or does it suit them to just sit it out due to financial restraints??

Again just a bit transparency is fine, have no problem either way as long as the reply has been calculated and an acceptable feedback.

Ps you also know my feelings on closing of bottle stores for needy and privileged.
Why give SA citizens more hardship in what are already difficult times?

How much longer will it be extended. When I see on the news about nearly 500 taxis have permits to transport people to east London for the weekend. Then they say that tomorrow the roads will be busy as everyone will come back from eastern cape from their Easter holiday. Can I also go away? I’m battling day by day locked up in a small place and then I still have to see that.

SA horse racing needs leadership. There are many owners who have great leadership skills in their respective industries who are never consulted as regards decisions made as regards racing’s plans and future. As an owner of a lot of horses I call for consultation as regards the leadership requirements of horse racing in SA going forwards.
Let’s find a Mr Cuomo going forwards please, this is a significant industry which seems to be extremely unsure of itself and anxious as regards its future. That is not an option, consult the talent pool of owners to get to a position of confidence, by opening up to us the facts as well as transparency of what has put racing into this position prior to COVID 19.

We all have a good idea what has happened but let’s put it on the table so we can plan as an industry without personal agendas the way forward and make sure that this never happens again.
