  1. Huge for Haunui

    Showcasing and Iffraaj are the best sires of 2 year olds this season They are standing for 35,000 Euros and 45,000 Euros respectively in the current northern breeding season Their service fees in NZ are massively discounted by Haunui Trust breeders will appreciate the quality of these two international sires
  2. Choosing A Yearling

    I purchased an unraced 2 year old Pentire filly for $1500 several years ago Her 1st foal was a Colt by a proven but uncommercial stallion and two experts informed me that the foal lacked scope and was foalified I sold him for $50k at weanling sales. He was re-presented at the yearling sales where he sold for a record auction price for his sire and is now in Ciaron Maher’s stable in Melbourne i have his 1/2 sister in Book 1 So bargains can be found
  3. Huge for Haunui

    Showcasing is having a magnificent season - look at today’s Wakefield’s Stakes G2 result. 1st and 3rd. Look at his Singapore results multiple winners each meeting. Haunui has two world class stallions and their 3rd horse Belado is a very interesting stallion prospect. Well down Mark, Shannon and your team
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Cheap Stallion

    Dopey can read
  12. Iffraaj - a quality stallion

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

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

    Congratulations Allan well deserved honour
  15. 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.
