    Cheap purchase gets better and better

    Thank you breeder and ruby I agree with the sentiments of the family. Exquisite Jewel foaled a beauty little brown colt who is going and growing strong. She is my 'dream' mare and that big step to racing. Yes i did look for the family and I hope I have found one in Grand Prospect tracing back on her family. To say I am a little bit excited in his half siblings performance is an understatement. We can only try and try again.

    Hi all, thank you for that, yes i did notice that she was 20/20 with 'everything' and it is interesting to see the pedigrees and how they line up. Definitely taken your words on board and will definitely select a stallion 'we like' and will select from there.

    Not yet and we are looking. I have been trying out the Gold Nicks Tests and there are a few that she is 20/20 with and i have been following with great interest, comments on these pages with breeding for my education it was easy to put her to Power to begin with.

    Yes indeed- i know she is amazing and our wee star although her shape is now looking like a Zeppelin! Great Stuff. I am now always on the lookout with her lineage in horses that are racing and planning to buy... (as are others I suppose). And the few that have been through the recent sales - i have been outbid on, however - if Exquisite Jewel is all we have in our life and her progeny i am more than happy with that. I watched Dark Princess have a great trial win at Foxton the other day and Nabiac is another going around.

    I am proud once again to see that the filly lot 272 went for 200 to Perth and just in time to hear the name Exquisite jewel mentioned in the sale. I am so thankful to Sir Patrick and Lady Justine for giving us a start in this business for the future. Exciting times.

    Woohoo thank you very much. He lives up to his name and was a beautiful little ' star 'today .- showing with beach work and ear muffs doing the trick. I am amazed at the ease of winning with some very good horses in his race. Where to now that is fun deciding..

    She is down south following new pusuits swimming Bush walking and eventing. She had a great life with our trainers and has landed on her feet again....

    Thanks yes our kate had plenty more in her racing ability and we could have raced her again -vet says..... but that would be tempting too much risk so we chose not to and have a fantastic well bred black type mare now. that experience has hooked my involvement and love of racing and now breeding horses even further and going to aussie with her was a dream. She paid her own way. Yes Trish is a partner also and still is and our last mare to race and win and then knock herself....was Eternal Angel. She was bred by Trish but she has now retired too. I have another Thano- Star Quality . A cracking looking liver chestnut. He has potential but he gets sweaty and worked up and doesnt look good but loves a fight in the race.

    Hi i am Exquisite Jewels very proud joint owner /buyer. Unfortunately she injured her tendon again after 13months rehab and had returned to trentham for one race. She is too valuable - 8 carat family to risk again racing. She has now tested in foal positive to stallion Power!! I am excited beyond belief. I rushed up to buy Game Duchess when put up for sale and she was withdrawn- rest is history. I am going to this years select sale to look only......yeah right.. good luck to all. Game Duchess has a yearling in book 1 be interesting to see what it goes for.
