    Time to end Jumps in the South?

    I so hope not, my fav time of season, always travel down to the National, but this has been my fear the past 10 odd years watching the decline of all things "Jumps", for many years it's been so hard for jumps jocks & most did it for the love, definitely not the $$ when lucky to get 2 jumps races a meet. Travel alone was a killer, & most gave the game away. As we know owners not keen to "risk" their horse & not many trainers keen to spend time needed, but mostly now can't get enough to even school them in Sth. Be a big loss in the South if it's lost. Riverton Easter meet & Riccarton were always good to attend. At least now in the North there are some clubs that have 3 & 4 jumps races which is good for all involved, clubs whose members dont care about Jumping have & will be the decline. Bad enough we have the Animal rights" iriots" trying to destroy all things racing

    Winx - Just Simply Amazing

    Amazing mare, hope they don't travel her overseas, she gets anxious enough in the gates, has nothing to prove I wouldn't risk anything going amiss, she'll make more in the paddock foaling now than risking racing on

    Memories of Chestnut Colour Horses

    If we went by stallions then Pakistan and Battle Waggon had a string of super chestnuts. e.g Panzer Chiel was quite striking. Battle Eve etc. My fav Susan Jane, cried buckets when she was sold to USA

    Jockeys lives ruined...

    Des Tucker was killed in car accident at Dunsandel travelling back from race meet, Gavin Gullery & Max Skelton were 2 of his mates in accident luckily survived, recall it well a sad day as all were top young Riccarton jocks at the time
