  1. Yes we don't have to pay the stud fee until foal is successfully delivered.
  2. Really appreciate westbury's no foal no fee offer this year. Gives us small breeders a bit of a break. Wish the other studs would follow Australia with better incentive schemes.
  3. Agree re rich hill roster. My mare is 3/4 to aimees idol and she is in foal to proisir. Considering ace high for next mating. He is a beautiful stallion.
  4. Thanks dibbles yes looked at those, but wondering how others are coming along.
  5. anyone have a colombia for sale or lease?
  6. Hi everyone. I have an opportunity to invest in a preferment 2 year old. Does anyone rate how his progeny are looking so far? I know they will probably take time but there are some in the r2r.
  7. Thank you so much from the information you sent. I will make sure the work is valued.
  8. Thank you would love them. No have not read his books.would nztba library have them?
  9. Can't see why we don't want to copy this idea of members of the public buying a 5 dollar ticket and then nominating a horse to run in a new million dollar race in nz. Bet it would be really popular.
  10. I bougt a beautiful mare that is a 3/4 to Aimees idol for only 200. Had another go at racing her for a 4th but her heart wasn' in it anymore and that was fine by me as I mainly got her for breeding. Have to say she is the spitting image of her grand dam eight carat and has a lovely nature. So I for one am a very happy purchaser.
  11. Thanks all. Will also visit the nztba library when it reopens. But really want stories from the people who knew and worked with her and her direct descendants. So any names of grooms, stud staff will also help.
  12. I am going to write a book, which I hope will be the first of a small series, on great nz broodmares. I have always thought there is so much more attention paid to the stallions and not the great blue hen mares. First one will be eight carat and her immediate offspring. I want to talk to people who knew the horses as I want the personal stories. I hope sir Patrick of course could be one of these but will get underway with the huge amount of research first. Would love to hear about any stories, photos anyone has. Big job I know but will be so much fun.
  13. Sorry uneasy but much easier for me to travel to see her race in the north island than the south. More race choices up there too.
  14. Hi all. This is my first post but have really enjoyed reading the commentary over the past year or so. I have a 3 yr old filly by shocking who has just finished her first race prep. I am about to spell her as she needs more strengthening. But considering new trainer and wanted someone in waikato or auckland with medium sized stable who has a particularly good record with stayers. Any suggestions?
