Champion trainer Mark Purdon says there is "no basis'' for the constant rumour through the harness racing world that he and Natalie (Rasmussen) have sold their property in Rolleston and will shift north to Pukekohe and is finding the persistent inquiries from the media and industry insiders about it testing.
"I don't know where they come from-certainly not from us'' Mark said "All I can say is that we are not planning to move anywhere. The day might come when it will happen but we are happy with the facilities and racing opportunities we have here at the moment"
"At the races the other night there must have been five people ask me about it but I can't really say any more than i have no basis''
