  1. In the old days a farmer would have run him with his mares up the back paddock ...
  2. No, but Luigi would love that!

I’d be interested in opinions of him as a broodmare sire potential. ?

Daly had suffered a stroke when riding trackwork in late October with complications from the episode leading to his hospitalisation with a meningitis infection that ultimately led to his untimely death. Daly, who operated a small but competitive stable from his Timaru base, had had a number of quality horses through his hands over his twenty eight year training career including ni
  11. Sad to hear that. Condolences to the family, and thanks for training my good mare.
  12. Another good weekend for Belardo with the Riccarton welcome stakes winner.
