    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.

    Laura Cheshire

    Hehehe....The poor bloke was lost for words I think Could see early on they had polar opposite personalities.......Good on them for taking the punt though, going on TV for all of Oz and NZ too see.

    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
  4. 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

    Peter Williams on Magic Talk ex Radio Live.

    I Don't mind Peter Williams - enjoy listening to him, although there was nothing wrong with Mark Sainsbury. Also like listening to Sean Plunkett and Ryan Bridge. I do miss the guy who used to be on until midnight over the last few years - Name escapes me now.

    Down come the Fees....

    Westbury Stud Fees - 2019 Reliable man $15K - Down from $17.5K Tarzino - Unchanged at $15K Swiss Ace $10K - Down from $12K? Redwood - Unchanged at $10K El Roca - $9K - Up from $7.5K Telperion - Unchanged at $5K Surprised that El Roca has jumped up on the back of only 2 stakes placegetters - Still early days for him though.

    Down come the Fees....

    Westbury Stud have released the fees for their 2019 stallion line-up with Reliable Man and Tarzino heading the roster at $15,000 + GST. Reliable Man has sired several stakes winners over the past twelve months headed by his daughter Sentimental Miss winning the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m) and Belle du Nord winning the Gr. 2 Cal Isuzu Stakes (1600m). His season looks far from over with the likes of Grinzinger Star, Nobu and Trusty Lad all aiming at Australian Group One features in the next few months. Dual Australian Group One winner Tarzino is entering his third year at stud after receiving strong support in his first two years serving 124 mares in his first season and 133 mares in 2018. Redwood and Swiss Ace will stand at $10,000 + GST, with El Roca and Telperion rounding out the roster at $9,000 + GST and $5,000 + GST respectively.

    Down come the Fees....

    I was thinking the same thing - Usually they are all announced by now. Good to see Waikato bring Ocean Park and Sacred Falls down to a "Working man's" fee.

    What’s the go with Riverton

    Shutdown Awapuni, Manawatu Raceway (Trots/greyhounds) and Trentham (Both getting swallowed up by housing) and start from scratch with a "Mega venue" at Foxton. Better surface/drainage and on State highway 1.

    stallion for 2019

    One of his fillies - Embrace Me - has a shot at Group 1 glory in The William Reid stakes tonight at Moonee Valley. Will be a tough ask against top filly Sunlight - but funny things happen at Moonee Valley with the tight turning track.

    Matamata 100 Years of Racing

    Good old "Smiling Assassin" John Key - He used to be all smiles and bulls..t when opening the Yearling sales when prime Minister.
  20. Hello All - Just putting a syndicate together for a Yearling - Lease with a Right of Purchase - After some thoughts from Cafers with some possible things to include in the lease conditions - Things like voting majority for any major decisions (Was thinking 55 or 60%), clauses around non payment (how long do you give someone to catch up payments before kicking them out?) etc. Maybe something I haven't thought of? Thanks in Advance

    The Graveyard - why??

    Cup winner was actually a CD horse - Trained in Bulls? by Bryce Newman.

    Well Done Team Pitman

    Yeah, I was surprised he said she didn't handle the track, since the Railway was run on a Good 3 from memory? No doubt she'll keep for another day.

    CD alternative meeting ??????

    Has happened in the past in the CD - with all the meetings around Xmas and New year - Fields got pretty small after 5 meeting in 8 days.

    CD alternative meeting ??????

    Better late than never, but rescheduled meeting will be 3 weeks from last weeks abandonment. If they had done some quick thinking and quick moving the ideal would have been to have a CD Industry day this coming Thursday and move Ashburton to this Friday.
