  1. Have been landed with a horse that is not a racing proposition - After it was advertised as a "racing and breeding proposition" and needs a "good track" When I asked if it was sound for racing on I was told it was sound, but did have a tie back operation as a 2YO. Horse is sound in limb, but when scoped here at home it's left side airway is totally collapsed - so ex owner was "economical with the truth" Gavelhouse have been good but ex owner not returning their calls (suprise suprise) Doesn't look like I have a leg to stand on - due to not getting a scope within 72 hours - My only crime was trusting the seller too much. Come on ex owner - do the right thing - it's not too late - Horse is here, being fed and fully rugged up.

    Buyer Beware - Gavelhouse auctions (Racehorses)

    Red Rum.... Yes, I could have done more homework and was aware of the tie back operation as a 2yo... I was told she needed a good track and that seemed plausable looking at her winter form this campaign.... The tie back operation has obviously failed at some point....and I'm sure that it wouldn't have been on the float trip down the North Island,. No, have not made contact with the seller..... Gavelhouse are trying to on my behalf. If he's not talking to them I don't like my chances of a decent conversation.

    There were four other fellow owners in the horse..... One G C O'Connor (Trackside presenter possibly?) These owners must have been aware that they were selling a suspect horse

    Yes Puha.... Definitely a scope before payment next time.... Gavelhouse have been good to deal with, just annoying that someone "high profile" can dump on the little guy. No wonder racing has a hard time attracting new owners etc when things like this go on....

    I'm still hoping the seller and his fellow owners will front up with a refund on this particular horse.... In fact I have a challenge for them..... If refund received I'll donate $1000 to the Catwalk Trust (my charity of choice) and will happily provide proof - So let's hope they come through and have something good come from this situation.

    Look up my Racecafe username in the results of the 5th August auction...... Seller/Part owner has also received a medal on behalf of the Queen

    NZTR board candidates

    IMO Luke Radich would be great to have on the board - Talks a lot of sense.

    Roaring lion withdrawn from service

    Wow - a shame indeed as he had a full book of mares and yes, good on them for acting and informing owners quickly - so new mating decisions can be made. Lets hope he is able to shuttle next year.

    Does John Allen still have a job come Monday? Surely RITA take the reins leaving John twiddling his thumbs......

    I watched the Michael Walker "Off the track" Documentary's over the weekend - It showed a replay of Smiling like winning the Wellington cup in the year 2000 - Infield was PACKED with cars and patrons and really shocked me how much has changed in the last 19 years......

    Ocean Park or Sacred Falls

    Ocean Park looking more attractive, with his run of form and with his fee down to a "working mans" fee.

    Do you mean Mark McNamara? If so I agree with you - Smooth delivery and accurate and can throw in the odd quick bit of humour
  22. Keen to watch the recent show filmed at LA Stud - Featuring Per Incanto and Time Test - It has aired in Oz but not sure if it has here in NZ yet? Hoping someone has a link or can download it to Youtube? Thanks
