  1. Sir Percy again and again

    Wake Forest (GER) 2010 (C. by Sir Percy-Wurfspiel) 1st Baden-Baden Ferdinand Leisten-Memorial BBAG Auktionsrennen, €200000 1400m earning €100000 This looks to be a really good win - is it a black type race?
  2. Video clips of the horses Breeze Ups are now posted on the NZB website to watch. This is different, and I think a very good sales pitch for the horses coming up for sale. Well done to them.
  3. Haidee Dawn is not far from trialling. 5% shares are available in this leased filly with ROP. $400 initial payment to catch up 5 months training, thereafter $80 per month. Trainer, Steve Kellow of Pegasus Training at Russley, Christchurch. Haidee is 1/2 to Vapourizer, My Hallucination & Spark It Up (who won on debut Sept 2012 -trainer, Steve Kellow) Steve Kellow, 03 3429520 or 0275574655. Photo up on Gavelhouse website.
  4. Who's the most Under-rated Sire?

    Faltaat's sold well at the South Island Sale this year
  5. Foals 2012 - Would love to see pics

    How did you load your photo. We have had 4 so far. 2 colts and 2 fillies - the colts are clients and the fillies ours.
  6. Who's the most Under-rated Sire?

    Istidaad would be my choice for an underrated sire. Has winners every week and last week 2nd top Stallion in the Informant charts. Would love to know what his stats are. Now, one of his big winning daughters, JustaTad is producing her own winners. This stallion would also have to be one of the nicest natured horses around - we have a new filly who at 2 weeks comes running up to be itched and to itch you back with nibbles in return. If you sit down beside her, she lies down and puts her head on you & May, her mum lies the other side of you. Quite magic. Istidaad has winners overseas as well as NZ

  13. So sad all around - racing has also lost out a colourful character.
  14. It is quite sad really how someone with so much money, throws it at the horses to dream the dream and be someone important to racing/breeding/selling, then runs into hard times and sells up. It affects so many people employed in the industry and takes so many down the slippery slope with them. It is these people one has to be sad for as they have to find other jobs, not easy in this market. Most would have families to care for.
