Spotted in one of the local rags, a pic of a digger ripping up the track at Pukekohe - very sad...

a couple of shots of the track in full flight then:

That is sad. I suppose it's going to become yet another housing estate?:rolleyes:
I have a feeling that's the way they're heading, the horse racing track is now their focus but time will tell.
 
There are enough well-heeled and influential horse breeders and racers in the area that the horse racing track may stay on for a while...
 
Ouch... not sure if anything broken but taken away in ambulance for at least a checkup:

Hmmmmmm... not entirely sure if concrete blocks are the ideal repair for this sort of damage:
