    Big Win Avantage

    Avantage Won first start in AU from memory (same day as Mornington Cup day to the disgust of the local bookies) so not totally poor in AU. Enzo terrific / game.

    Horse loading ramp

    Measure your own / most likely contract mover truck door and make it slightly wider for parking error, and also for its height. consider how both side and rear loaders can use it consider a rise then flat rather than continuous up hill hmmm.... consider an L shape when the horses walk around a corner as well...

    Time Test

    Totally agree. We can get a thrill from that dansili mare time test is out of, but we find out when the hoofs hit the turf. But disclosure I’ve sent my best mare to him...
  8. Point 4: never drink a Chardonnay cold , it kills the complex aromas. Point 10: really gets me as if you can’t hear what’s the point of being there, especially given point 9!
  9. Here's an article on 1 NEWS NOW I thought you might be interested in. Aussie racehorses wrongfully sent to slaughterhouse, investigation uncovers https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/sport/other/aussie-racehorses-wrongfully-sent-slaughterhouse-investigation-uncovers
  10. I think The rules of racing in NSW prohibit the sale of ex racehorses at unregistered/ unregulated sales, and while not illegal also the destruction of horses in this way at a slaughter house. The article quoted around 4000 a year being slaughtered- the NSW industry regulator - who appears to be not monitoring effectively - is quoting .4 of 1% from memory noting 14000 foal a year are bred in Australia.
  11. There is a very powerful story about the destruction of thoroughbred racehorses in Australia after that are ‘unwanted’. It will be front page news tomorrow over here. It talks about the ‘industrial scale of distruction of ex racehorses... this is not painting the industry in a great light nor those of us who do not treat animals this way. someone might be able to attach a link but I’m watching it on replay on app ‘ABC iVIEW’ if that helps. This will be big news.

    Time Test

    Great start but can he deliver. He’s got pedigree, speed, performance but a statistical hurdle to clime to be a good sire. Sire sons of Dubawi coming out. Backing in uk and in nz is good. No doubt mares he gets will be ok. He got a good one from me.

    Just another link to NZ

    I rate Time Test family above another Juddmonte import in zacinto - but what are others thoughts... I think the runs at ascot and York stand out, and Dansili in the broodmare sire position - and from such a good race mare. Thoughts?

    Riccarton races

    To be fair that’s exactly what happened last meeting at Flemington - the new stand is made for non horsey people and the cafe facilities were grossly under manned. Had to go out of members just to get served. VRC are taking a pounding from members who are being asked to pay more - for less.
