  1. Sad to hear of Jim's passing. From a small team he trained a number of very good horses through the 70's, 80's and early 90's including Taras Bulba, Ranchi Ruler, Cossack Prince and King Maruding. Thanks for the wonderful memories Jim.
  2. Back to the WB purchase, great vote of confidence in the Iffraaj sire line. Amazing where the next sire lines can come from, gives us all hope. If I recall correctly, Iffraaj won his Group 2 at five years? Haunui and Cambridge will be stoked.
  3. Has anyone seen his Australian or NH foals? Maiden mare so trying to get an idea of the size he leaves.
  4. It's a lot of moolah but I thought it was reasonable given he stands for 50k pounds up north and the fees of Pierata, Yes Yes Yes and Microphone. Interestingly he was only 127 Timeform. Night of Thunder was the same figure.
  5. I see Bill Openheim considers Too Darn Hot as good a chance as any horse of making it as a stallion. A beautifully constructed pedigree, limited ND and no Danehill, he should be easy to mate. He's a sexy bugger too and black cats leave black kittens.
  6. The Sadlers Wells double-up is certainly growing in popularity, and with good reason. Enable, Cliffs of Moher and Eminent come to mind. Interestingly it's also working as a male/male duplication. Whether he ends-up as successful as ND and Mr P is a big call but if toughness and soundness account for anything, he'll get close. I remember John Magnier and Vincent O'Brien in the excellent "Horsetrader" going on about his tenacity and durability.
