    keano

    Is leaving some nice big strong types with good temperament. Sadly missed 2 years in a row with my mare. He is a great looking animal.

    New Stallions 2018

    He is an impressive looking animal, pretty smart on the racetrack, certainly leaves his stamp on his offspring, should be useful over Danehill line mares, I can't see the downside to Sweet Orange, or am I missing something?

    That's right, however if that was everything then Haradasun would have had heaps of support, weren't many better (and what a family)

    Oaks Market

    I did like Hasahalo early but she has well and truly gone off the boil. Contessa Vanessa for mine. Can race handy and has a great kick, gutsy too with just a bit of class.

    Auckland Cup

    It is really simple, we still breed good stayers, its just the world values them more than we do. If you have a promising horse going through the grades and an offer comes from offshore, you would be a mug not to sell. Why stay here and race for chump change? The costs of racing a horse in Australia are not too different to here, the stakes are far better. Our handicapping and race classification penalised you if you have an Ohcp horse that isn't quite up to WFA. The programming folks pulled our R65 2100m we have in July and replaced it with an Open 1400m (a race we discarded because of a lack of noms). We have just had a battle with them and by the sounds of it have the former race back. This industry is full of passionate capable people that do great anywhere in the world, its just a shame we make it so hard for them to make it here.
