      Outage   04/11/2018

      Hi everyone sorry we had some hosting issues and had to upgrade to a bigger storage plan. As I am now managing the site and on learner plates it caused some issues. I want to thank Admin for all his help over the past years but we have decided to go our separate ways, I really appreciate all he has done for the site and the help he has given me over the past years. We will be upgrading and adding new features to the site with a new business directory, a special members only with many benefits  and many comps and prizes as we have been doing lately. We hope the new changes make the site more accessible to more, and more industry people feel able to participate in the forum in a transparent basis. There will be something for everyone we hope and look forward to seeing you all in here.Cheers.

  1. Power To Queensland

    This a dumb move 180 broodmares were bred to Power in 2016 great foal crop going forward
  2. John Allen's latest "conversations"....

    Interesting appointment by Winston Peters today engaging John Messara to review the structure of NZ racing Bring it on
  3. NZTR, Deloitte Report

    There is no magic fix to racing’s woes. Racing has to be an attractive betting product for the younger generations and they are no big gamblers at present. Can Racing have some commercial connection with Lotto?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Cheap Stallion
