  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.

    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?
  7. A tough day as roaring lion withdrawn from service due to a bout of colic. stud clearly looking after the horse and owners. https://mailchi.mp/cambridgestud.co.nz/roaring-lion?e=10c581d4d6

    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.
  9. I like your posts on interesting lots and potential sire Breeder - insightful out of the box thinking - keep on it as I feel you will land on something. Remember Sir T was not that well performed on first look but obviously was more than ok as a sire
