    Most frivolous protest ever ?

    I said imo which by definition is ... in my opinion. Show me you triangulation calculation and diagram that gets you to 9cm, I did pure and applied mathematics. Let's agree, for the calculation they went out 7m and take the distance from where the stewards said the bump occurred. Phone a friend if you need to. what about the rules, and taking another horses line. what about the fact the jock got 4 days - are you saying you could argue that was not correct. Overall I agree it was minor not major - but all I said was imo it was worth a look!!!!

    I'd think the talk of $15 above is DREAMING. more like 8-10, 10 max.

    Was there on the day. I agree with the above. Everyone is an expert of course, and noting Tony is astute and gave connections a grand run through to the derby, and noting my comments are in hindsight .... however I think he should have bypassed the full Guineas prep and keep his legs with the sprint needed to win the derby. One run too many is my hindsight view as it looked more like a Melb cup run...and slightly dour. if I could train I wouldn't be working for a living

  9. Given champions are the Extream exception ....Actually asking for a model to predict the variance is an oximoron.

    Sacred Elixir

    Such a great run today I looked at Sacred Elixir's pedigree, from Horlicks family, clearly a horse on the rise. 1600m Two year old group one's (current target) aside this Pour Moi must be a Derby horse in the future. I've attached his pedigree for comment. im a big fan.

    caulfeild guineas thread

    Thanks for that, I've just joined centerbet / William hill and even at $2:25 a place they match your first bet to effectively turn that into $4:50 a plc.... who could ask for more. TAB you are idiots.

    Leading First Season Sire

    From memory a heavier horse likely to throw three yeR olds more than 2yeR olds I agree a risk at the moment and hard for breeders to feel he's a must breed to before he gets away on us... Be be happy to buy a good type for not too much

    Sacred Elixir

    Obviously a Guineas horse as well, all class.

    If say dream ahead will go ok, just won't be fashion initially because of his more vailed pedigree. But actually when you strip it back (nearco, etc) it's all worked well down here. I do love the horse.

    Leading First Season Sire

    I saw dream ahead win the July cup as a three year old, lovely type with a more difficult prdigree to understand over head. Sensational type on the day of the July cup, absolute standout.

    Inbreeding to Danehill

    Eg Some of those Irish 2000 Guineas can be very soft.
  24. Not much new in there nas but agree with your premise. The more I breed the more I focus on stallion proven ness and type... Cant really do a pedigree that has been a cross flop thou do you think buyers are getting the 20:20 type reports for sales or buying on type and temperament !

    Per Incanto & Zacinto

    I guess the answer to will Saracino will measure up is yes, and we'll see the horse in even better races going forward...
