    First Season Sire Predictions

    Cheers picture is Egyptian ra Chris
  3. I have cut and paste the Arion contenders for first season sire honours - being number of winners based. I'll stick my neck out to start and say: 1. Shamexpress (many went to auzzie and lower numbers - (lots of Grosvenor in him imo but he did sprint! 2. Jakkalberry (I think will have speed early enough) and they have class there may be others not on the list ?

    The next generation

    VG Derby winner, given a proper stamina test, this horse improved a good deal. The time was outstanding for races run over the longer trips in the ground to, and he has won by staying. He looks like his sire New Approach who won this in 2008 and he is an extravagant galloper but although a big horse had no problems with the course.

    Reliable Man

    Has gone very quiet and has had no classic winners to date
  14. Group one winners x 2 3 x million dollar horses (one might be in hk$) by three different stallions Desert Sun woodborough al Akbar i think it was mare power.
  15. Two words... Egyptian Queen
  16. I’d happily take 1 every three

    Canterbury Belle

    So did we establish that Dave Kerr is the last South Island based trainer to win a group one in Australia??? Or ????

    Canterbury Belle

    gaffa - sold to US after his 2000 Guineas win - from Dave’s own breeding family, Radback, Clansman, Canterbury Belle, straight line, player (cocky golfer), pastime and Slice (both by Icelandic), pasithia, gloss (by Pompeii Court), group winner Domingo (mistral Dancer) he also won the Gosford Guineas and ran 5th in Rosehill Guineas. Won his next 5 in a row on return to NZ! Very temperamental horse but the best I handled. Beechwood Bold - good open class John grigg winner (or place getter), Kap the bid, Vicky buck (daughter of Canterbury Belle), Joan, and I would have missed many many. Great years lots of memories.

    Canterbury Belle

    Yes sorry correct

    Canterbury Belle

    Trained by the great Dave Kerr (and Jan of course). For Nick Wigley out of calico queen (? Sp I think ) who was imported and by the stud thoroughbred teaser - go figure) Does bode the question that I think (subject to your feedback) that Dave Kerr is the last South Island based trainer to train a group one winner in Australia (elders Handicap then Doncaster now) - is that right? michael pitman has a chance to break that now and I hope for his sake he does. It’s overdue.

    NZB scope for improvement

    “A few New Zealanders ive spoken to also buy on behalf of Asian clients. A 3 is a fail in some Asian racing jurisdictions. So what happens when the NZB scope says its a pass but the Hong Kong vet says its a fail and the NZ middle man is stuck with a horse they don't want?” This does happen. What’s happens is you’re stuck with a horse that’s a pass in other jurisdictions
