  1. First Season Sire Predictions

    We have selected Belado as a mate for our Pentire mare. His G1 race wins were impressive and he is quality individual He is probably the best 1st season sire out of Europe to stand at stud in NZ Haunui Farm under Mark Chitty's leadership is a stud going places
  2. Our Second Broodmare

    Echoes of Heaven is a stallion with offspring running very well at present. We have a cracking EoH yearling colt to sell at Karaka next year
  3. Jacinda Ardern

    National has a very capable young female cabinet minister called Nicki Kay who is as good as if not a better Poli as Jacinda. Perhaps the Old Boys club in National should promote Nicki to a leadership position
  4. This is a very good idea. Steve Davis would do a very good job as a narrator for such a film. It would be an opportunity to introduce a wide range of stallions to potential breeders. The Waikato and Auckland branches of NZTBA should take up this initiative
  5. Linwood Park

    Is this Stud going to again stand stallions this season as Ekraar and Echoes of Heaven are not advertised in the 2017 Stallion Register? Both these stallions are performing well enough as sires to stand elsewhere if they become available
  6. Showcasing is a smart sire

    Haunui has an excellent international stallion line up. Probably the best sire offering at any NZ farm. Showcasing has 330 foals from his last three SH foal crops so there is a lot more progeny yet to race. In the U.K. He stands for PDS 25,000 which is the high esteem in which is placed in the NH. Power stands in the UK for PDS 8,000 but stands for the same fee in NZ
  7. New stallion for Brighthills

    I saw Preferment today at Brighthill. A very nice horse just out of training He looks like Zabeel's natural successor and I will be breeding to him
  8. Cheap Stallion

    Dopey can read
  9. Iffraaj - a quality stallion

    Another G1 winner at Royal Ascot in the Queen Anne Stakes
  10. Blue Shadow

    Agreed Also the tremendous win by New York Minute another quality Iffraaj
  11. Alan Fenwick

    Congratulations Allan well deserved honour
  12. New Minister for Racing

    David Bennett has been MP for Hamilton East for many years and is likely to retain his seat at this year's elections. He is a dairy farmer and I am aware that he has attended Racing events in Hamilton. I hope that he does a good job in this important portfolio.
  13. Johnson v Johnson

    Are Chris and Danielle related? l
  14. Iffraaj - a quality stallion

    Another Group winning 3 year old by Iffraaj in Brisbane today I understand that Iffraaj is a sire that has not previously been supported by the major studs so this may change in 2017 Based on his progeny's current race results that he is NZ's best 3 year old stallion and most promising dam sire
  15. Iffraaj - a quality stallion

    Iffraaj sired a U.K. Group 1 stakes winner Ribchester on Saturday I understand that he has a full book for the 2017 breeding season
