  1. Michael Pitman

    Gruff El Chico never had 3 starts in 9 days with us ever Only time I considered taking him to the Telegraph he finished 3rd then won the Listed Timaru Herald Stakes (which he ended up winning 3 times) 7 days later
  2. Melody Belle rort ?

    Very true comment Leo a lot of horses do come south and get confidence and "learn how to be a winner" and continue on. Often there is less pressure in our races, having been up north just recently I am sure climate also plays its part
  3. No one said they didn't want to take Enzo's Lad to Wgtn rather concerns about the track were discussed EL was booked to travel a week before the race and Sam was booked before the fields were framed. As the trainer and part owner I can assure you it was on the radar before NZ Cup Week that was why we did not run in the stewards being mindful he would have to carry more weight for a Group3 win than a listed win. The result was very satisfying and rewarding Thank you
  4. They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore

    Fab was trained for most of his career by F P Oliver Richard Brosnan trained him late in his career and may have won a race with Fab - good tough horse

    That's right Raceday Fifth earns 2 points if sixth in one of its first 3 starts earn 1 point
  14. So here’s what Alan Jackson has done this year

    Surely you mean 76 then penalised it was in receipt of 7 kilos - 14 points should have been penalised 4 to 5 points off a 75 rating ie should have gone to 79 or 80
