  1. I remember when working in the stables that we taught two older horses to swim ( not taught at a young age), both open class gallopers, and they both bled after - stopped swimming and neither bled again.
  2. Berri or others ...do you know.of any research for bleeding in mares being passed on, is it hereditary as I have a mare who won well at her first start but bled after and was retired. any thoughts.
  3. Hasty Cloud stood at Edgar Jones stud in Timaru I think... went ok, and also stood Massowa I think ... long time ago... 44. 1955 Toparoa 1955 Toparoa b.g. 1948 Massowa - Miss Sally 18 Fam Jockey: N. Sellwood Trainer: T.J. Smith Toparoa, a plain seven-year-old gelding, was the first Cup winner of the champion Trainer: Tommy Smith and he was ridden by the internationally celebrated jockey Neville Sellwood. In beating Rising Fast, who humped 63kg, into second place, Toparoa stymied what would have been a fabulous feat as the champion New Zealander had won the Caulfield Cup-Melbourne Cup double in 1954 and had also won the Caulfield Cup in 1955.

  4. Thanks for the post, maybe a bit obscure the one mare in au located in the NZ market?
  5. 6 colts start - 0 winners 9 fillies start - 5 winners as at 26/6/2020
  6. And all fillies so far...colt going around at Windsor today. its nice when you can breed to a horse when you know the fillies can run, like old RIP Centaine for example and RIP O’Reilly and ..... it helps to lower risk of a commercial blow out
  7. Look, it’s a long way out but, take the $11.

  9. I saw him a few years ago at the parade when he arrived, I really wanted to like him, he’s got great credentials, but I did think he was very lite in physicality, I partly put that down to the fact he had not let down. Overall, he’s a good horse to have I think. Can anyone put up his foal / weanling or yearly types.
