  1. Payment After sales.

    Yes these Bloodstock firms are a bit tough and yet when you're buying they want their money straight away. Obviously they must invest at a daily rate our money and with the millions at stake gives them a handsome reward.
  2. Payment After sales.

    It is interesting that Inglis take six weeks to pay for a horse sold at their sales whereby if one sells cattle at any sale in Aust the stock firm must pay within fourteen days,by law.What is NZB's payment time?
  3. Showcasing no longer shuttling

    I still think if one breeds to race he is a good bet and as they seem natural runners one only needs to alter their training regime to get the best from them. This of course seems typical of this overall sire line.Perhaps that is why they are better in the Northern Hemisphere as generally horses are trained in a more relaxed manner and not run around in circles and galloped frequently.
  4. Showcasing no longer shuttling

    Seems a shame he's not shuttling.Similar thing happened with other Green Desert line stallions such as Cape Cross and Invincible Spirit in Aust and now look at I'm Invincible who's now setting Aust on fire. Power may do well in Qld and Charm Spirit in NZ.as this Green Desert sire line is fairly handy. Breeding fashions down under are fickle.
  5. Jet Spur and Real Saga are to be offered in Inglis' April online auction. Both have left stakes winners.
  6. Showcasing pedigree patterns

    Yes she's only small and won the Guineas by 4 lengths.
  7. He's Remarkable

    Doesn't look that good does it Nasrulla.
  8. He's Remarkable

    Sawtell just won again fresh up over 1400m at Grafton (Aust).Three from seven so far looks a fairly handy horse.Dam is french Flute.
  9. In the past two days Stallions Unencumbered and Poets Voice have been lost to the Aust breeding industry. Unencumbered stood at Three Bridges . He had Condritis and was operated on, but was lost after surgery. Poets Voice was owned by Darley and died of a heart attack at Dalham Hall Stud.He was a shuttle sire to Aust.
  10. Chautauqua....has he had enough....???

    A short spell then give him to the Hayes and D at Euroa.New scenery and open paddocks.
  11. Mares covered 2018

    Yes Jess ............ Enforcing!!
  12. Mares covered 2018

    Be interesting to see how many of these stallions are syndicated and how many syndicate breedings each has (also stud ownership mares used). This would show how many small breeders are still breeding.
  13. Fanatic

    While being interviewed after Fanatic's 5th at Mooni Valley on 16th Feb,David Hayes said her main aim was the Adelaide Cup. His son reiterated those words after her second at Flemington on the 3rd. What great trainers this partnership are and I have seen their facilities which are equal to the best in the world. Michael Walker also a Champ, Top ride from the exTaranaki Wonder.
  14. Almost Court

    Yes I see he is still in the ownership along with a heap of others. The paper this morning says the horse has won $222000 since being in Aust.and won one race in NZ before coming here.There a few Alamosa's in Aust but those that are here seem to do well as he is one sire I follow and has been good for a bet.
  15. Almost Court

    Almost Court by Alamosa has just won the Canberra Cup.Purchased from Brian Court apparently.Led all the way for a very excited trainer and owners.
