  1. Cup day

    Great day out at riccarton saturday, nice weather, top fields and a good crowd, the hardest part was trying to back a winner. Just thought after the feature races and un saddling of the horses in the birdcage , after such a hard race, the winner then had to endure the duration of the speeches and the replay of the last stages of the race over the loud speaker, then were expected to line up for the winning photo with the owners. A tough ask on some of the younger horses who are not used to the big occasion, and are all hyped up, after running their heart out. To their credit they were well behaved, but just thought the photos would be best done first and the horse wisked away for a hose down. Enjoyed the day out and after a big week of racing, looks like all horses got around unscathed, at the end of the day, that to me is the most important thing.

    What a loss to the breeding industry, certainly made his mark as a top sire.

  7. RTR Sale Selections.

    I like your way of thinking, there is no shortage, plenty are pushed to the races as babies when not mentally or physically ready, then thrown aside when they don't preform.Good luck im sure you will find one.

    Paratonnerre was out of a mare called chuckles, must have been a few years before i got the bug, but had been told by an old friend he was a smart horse, and he also mentioned senator kennedy, firpo was out of a mare called cherie susie, and eros finished his racing days as clerk of the course horse at westport. Looking at a greymouth race book from 78 they had the d p wilson memorial cup, looks like it was won by red gae, maybe, the print a bit hard to understand, the good old days, so many memories.

    I think scotch mist was by balios and brutus to, yes peligro was a very handy type, the kennedy's always had some nice horses, pericolini was a very good horse for them, and agree they were good stallions in there day.
