  1. Yes, one in Melbourne premier and also one in Tasmania.
  2. There are a few more now being presented in Australia, which would make up those numbers by a few. But agree that he has been under represented, especially given what he is doing in HK etc... buyers find them thou.
  3. And some of the best temperament horses I’ve had.
  4. OFFICERS (ONZM) Lisa Joy Allpress, Whanganui, for services to the racing industry. congrats to Lisa for this recognition in this year honours list.
  5. Yes I saw that too. Thanks for the kind words about Turf Fire, yes another Don Carlo would be nice. She was fast, 1.08 from memory at riccarton...yes per incanto had a lot of good mares a few years ago which in my opinion really pushed him on, especially internationally. I’d be interested in opinions of him as a broodmare sire potential. ?
  6. Popular South Canterbury horseman Michael Daly passed away on Friday afternoon just minutes before quality sprinter Don Carlo (NZ) (Per Incanto) tried to provide his former mentor with a final win at Riccarton. 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
  7. Sad to hear that. Condolences to the family, and thanks for training my good mare.
  8. Another good weekend for Belardo with the Riccarton welcome stakes winner.
  9. Kingshill - Per Incanto ex Turf Fire filly foal 9 days old -
  10. Hello leggy testy , nice foal
  11. Very nice result for you...still waiting for my foal
  12. thats a nice result. I obviously like the horse, and note he throws a type and leg in to his horses. he’s fully booked on a reduced fee this year, and has served good books in both hemispheres. Berri, I’d be interested in a comment on how the NH view his yearlings / type. His first yearlings will be at Karaka this year..
  13. disclaimer: bred to him, not a shareholder or affiliated. I think his performance as a racehorse beats a lot standing in both NZ and AU. Early days as a sire - Lope de Vega proven upgrader. Danehill and Nijinsky in bottom line should be a bonus. hes a strong type, perhaps a volksraad type replacement to kick off a mare with an early runner reliably (and more) I think he is currently overlooked in the Australian consciousness at the moment, with his achilles heal being proving performance on dry tracks - but who knows. A couple of his group wins were on rain affected tracks s
  14. To be fair those dam sires are absolute top draw names which clearly give that horse every chance (genetic probability/ Mendels peas)
  15. Try the hall of fame via their website..or send a leave a message
  16. 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.
  17. Berri or others 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.
  18. 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
  19. Thanks for the post, maybe a bit obscure the one mare in au located in the NZ market?
  20. 6 colts start - 0 winners 9 fillies start - 5 winners as at 26/6/2020
  21. 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
  22. Look, it’s a long way out but, take the $11.
