  1. Firstly.... Law and Laws EVERTHING regarded as "Property" is a Security measured Economically. Therefore the "Value' equates Financial Property. Legal-ease language cover shit-loads and yes authorized syndicators get an legal Exemption to the Financial Market Conduct Act. Authorized, licensed whatever the syndicator is Exempted from being at any fault.
  2. Alert and warning to call out the BS propaganda & media wolf in sheeps clothing. Info "project counterglow" (interactive map and database of animal enterprises) & Farm Transparency Map (Australia) are universal/world organized campaigns of networked farm & animal extremists A site - protecttheharvest.com uncovers & alerts method, application & agenda used.
  3. bit late in the day however... Those racecafers who might be aware I've hobby blogged genotype pedigrees & breeding at specifics which aren't common. www.thethoroughbredlink.com has been for a long time FREE. We've needed to step up into the game , so this is it...… https://thethoroughbredlink.com/selections/ (if the link don't work: the TBL menu goes under What's coming....) Everything you need to consider is on the page and menu. Otherwise contact. Thx/Cheers TBL
  4. watch videos of being on a horses back and you get an impression speed (or going fast) is racing, tempo and pace, to its endurance to win, accounts The Ability. The Human ideals of what is meant by fast, matched by the clock is perception only. There is no doubt in my mind it is the quadrilateral action, bio-mechanics what has the edge.
  5. From reading the recent edition , Informant's bloodstock article - Winx and Enable not the only Queens of the Turf, I took with some amusement and quote "I am well aware that some of the most respected pedigree experts maintain that such quality females are constructed pedigree-wise in particular fashions. I have always struggled to subscribe to these ideas, although I hasten to add that they may well be correct. Anyone who could care to enlighten me please do" Not the expert....more pedigree aficionado (even junkie, will do thanks) where most 'ideas' are yes indeed, the evaluation of wh
  6. yeah you're right - sort of. With background to the proposal... it was years back & I don't know whether she is still around or not, Trent Busettin's grandmother at Castletown motels - Foxton, ran a ladies racing group. She herself, a very insightful lady. Something that has stuck with me over the years. Good sound knowledge there's the thing, isn't it? You have correctly guessed - TBL is gender minority Irrespective of gender, age, wider social interaction, its engagement, has become widely indifferent with overall management/ leadership culture presided from NZR. Persona
  7. Thoroughbred Womens Network is an american non-profit organization. https://www.thoroughbredwomensnetwork.org/. Please read their mission statement. As a collective community, it brings women together with only requirement (at any level of interest) towards thoroughbreds & racing, whether experienced or not. It's a directory, referral and support/sharing based. It has been helpful in aiding young women into the industry by those women better experienced to advise accordingly. It would be great if something like this could be established in New Zealand. Are women
  8. I would hope most breeders would appreciate the strength and depth genotype esp. Shirley Heights. Get your point on maternal but feel its slight to the quality strains elsewhere. I think its a sire pedigree which will punch above its weight but kind of wonder will NZ breeding get enthusiasm about getting back on track to staying quality. I would hope so buts its a long haul admittedly. Another factor in the pedigree is King's Best. His sire Kingmambo is Cross Counter (GB) - broodmare Sire. King's Best dam Allegretta, dam of Urban Sea, dam of Galileo. International lines staring
  9. I also think of the many possibilities or opportunities that just slip by, through, and are sort of forgotten. LOVE Racing media site appears isolated, doesn't cut the mustard or is piece-meal without any drive, strategy to it. I tend to see tit-bits of info, without the impetus to a great sport with great personalities of all ages. We've exported, driven, or given away a lot of industry talent both horses & people which amazes me why we can't applaud them further in some manner. Reading forums opinions & idea, there are some positive solutions which go unheeded/ignored
  10. 2 cents worth... Think the document an 'offer' on the table. Its sly agenda to pave a contractual way for the government to gain the FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT to sell off courses.The CONSENT or giving AUTHORITY to do so as AGREEMENT by consensus - so don't come with regret if you think different. NZ racing long time in demise, weakened by NZTR macro to the micro. Gets to the sad case where most are saving their own skin and or, are happy with their lot. Practices/ processes around the industry, not the case of best horse wins, but smartest horse or should I say those in the clever K
  11. Seriously, I get so very frustrated at the Danehill idol. Like breeding machinery Danehill swept acoss the breed, and particularly Australasia to serve speed purpose which is now backsliding upon the mass average. (no fact here, only opinion!) by quoting..."nothing is easier than to improve a breed; to, say, increase the average milk yield of a moderate herd by using proved sires of higher yield; but if you ever read a position where you have nothing better to use for improvement, retrogression is the rule. Having improved the special traits of the racehorse by stringent selection
  12. I am the writer/blogger of www.thethoroughbredlink.com - Waikato region NZ based and am looking for quality resources that if possible, I may borrow for a short-duration. Guaranteed they will be returned! Any older books towards racing greats, thoroughbred breeding from Britain, America or Germany, & Australia, N.Z and or of, rarer photos would be great! Anything considered and with much appreciation if you can kindly help. PM - thank you. Cheers, TBL
  13. Coming from a different philosophy (not theory or system) and Encouraged by some international interest to my TBL pedigree blogging posts www.thethoroughbredlink.com , thought it was high-time to put it down here! Its primed upon importance of maternal families and engaging the female family tables so it might be of interest to a few who apply these for breeding in their own right. i.e. not commercial sale. Food for thought and all that. Enjoy. Also on FB - The Thoroughbred Link. Cheers.
  14. - Blame??? you've taken all I have expressed out of context and can't take a back-hand compliment to yourself when it is given. I try to understand another's point of view, for the ultimate benefit of the horse as to get best outcome or her. You would know there are many fine-point decisions through training as I recognise now as owner. Don't understand why you are so hostile? Only trying to reconcile differences that 'newer' racing people can experience.
  15. No Midget, I bow down to your powers or Knowledge, which actually I greatly admire & note - even so with your cynical humour. not an expert as you qualify (buy hey, I'll take that compliment if it is intended - always observing/noting following things through best way one can. Unfortunately got into racing as something on my bucket list and found a festival buy at $13,500 which turns out to be as quoted est. $500K should she go through as a broodmare at auction. No I haven't made that one up either where trainer's uncle is management at NZ Bloodstock thank you. FYI ,
