    I see Verry Flash ran his usual honest race for 2nd at Tauranga after being parked 4 or 5 wide at the tail of the field!
    Horse obviously has ability so why would you waste your time racing here for $30k when he could go around in Sydney every Saturday for $120k with a decent jockey on board?

    It's inevitable some horses are going to go over hurdles/ steeples later in their careers regardless of how they are bred. I personally don't put a lot of store in breeding when assessing their ability on certain track conditions either. A number of good summer sprinters/gallopers have turned out good jumpers on wet tracks. The only rule is there are no rules.

    I think Sir T and Zabeel both sired Gt Northern winners. Do you judge their stud careers on that fact alone ..............

    Pegasus 9 got a reaction from benzracing in DUNDEEL   
    A colt by Dundeel topped the first session of the William Inglis Great Southern Sale at Oaklands on Sunday when selling for $250,000.
    The bay is closely related to Group I winners Bonneval, St Reims and Champagne and after an opening bid of $100,000 eventually sold to New Zealand-based Alan Fu for $250,000.
    The colt was consigned by Glastonbury Farm, Duncan Grimley who described bidding on the colt as 'a feeding frenzy'
    "That's a great result, he’s a really nice colt,” Grimley said “Dundeel is just going like a machine at the moment.
    “Everybody on the ground was on the horse.
    “Expectations would’ve been around $200,000, and he went in with a reserve of $150,000.
    “It was like a feeding frenzy up there - there was about seven or eight on him at $200,000."
    Earlier in the session Steve and Ceri Jostler went to $240,000 for a colt by Exceed And Excel out of a winning Zabeel half-sister to New Zealand Group I winner Vosne Romanee.

    She did look good but that 2nd win looks in a poor race by Newbury standards , third home was 14 lengths behind winner next time out at Kempton in average race  , second looks OK won next up and ran ok in decent handicap after  but rest will have to go low grade  to get head in front  imho.  She really dealt to them though .J Macc done the biz for owner last year at RA.

    Where is the Racing Hall of Fame/Museum?
    Isn’t everything still packed away in a container or two somewhere, probably deteriorating, especially anything in the form of paintings, photos and books?
    A disgrace just like the current idiots in charge of a once great sport/industry!

    Pegasus 9 reacted to Boss Hogg in The good old days   
    Remember the good old days about six months ago when on a Saturday morning you sprung out of bed and skipped down the hall to the kitchen giving the missus a cuddle and a kiss .Sitting down at the table opening your laptop and spending a couple of hours going thru all the fields .
    You get your bacon and eggs while you put your bets together ew bets done multis done doubles done pick6 done ahh life was easy.Outside the kitchen window the birds are cherping in your favorite bottle brush tree boy they sound great .Giving the missus a little kiss goodbye you wonder down to the pub to compare and discuss your bets with your mates .Happy hour is on so a nice jug of Speights and a few bets life it doesnt get much better for an old digger.
    Fast forward six months Saturday morning you wake up knowing you have a mission you look down the hall it seems longer and narrower you finally reach the kitchen giving the missus a knowing nod. You circle the table and open laptop to tab,yeap click on buffering click buffering scratching click scroll,scroll on to feilds ,network down please click to restart.Click buffering scroll on and on .
    Breakfast arrives, it is muesli, seems that recently my blood pressure has risen sharply and wife says its good for me I can hear those f##*en birds squawking in the bottle brush tree must get the chainsaw out and chop that tree down.Not sure what bets I"ve on decide to watch an episode of Chernobyl to put me into a happier frame of mind to go to pub.
    Walking into pub which has changed hands two nice young chaps who have turned it into a craft beer bar,the tab is gone as takings were down and a Kiosk was put in which doesnt work because of technical problems, Im no technician but I think the axe sticking out of the screen after Bluey couldnt get his money out might be the problem.I walk over to the boys table with my handle that looks like horse piss and whiskey chaser.No one is saying much just mumbling about dont think their bets are on ,network down click on and try again .Its not good seeing grown men crying so decide to go home to watch big races from Wellington..Wife is watching boxset of Married and the First one in the sack on the big tv so watch on small tv in kitchen the big race was so close but no photo finish what were the numbers ?Waiting for judges call ,noooo Sweeeeenys burbling on no call Ahhhhh were did it all go wrong I sit with my head in my hands. Thats all I've got to say about that.

    It is amazing how the SI was ever lucky enough to attract someone like Mark. I suppose we could always try to lure that lad back from HK, who has done quite well for someone who wasn't good enough for us previously.
