  1. I'm trying to get feel for the type of progeny he leaves. Has anyone had a look at a line of his horses in the flesh. I've had a look at the photos on NZB but photos are always hard to assess. He had a turn of foot and has a pedigree. For 3k he's priced right.
  2. sad indeed. Great memory of Lord Module winning a Barton Memorial I think it was after missing away by lengths. Glad I got back a couple of years ago to pay my respects. It must have been something to be there when they had 50,000 over the four nights of the 65 Inters.
  3. Thanks for putting that up. Promising enough start for TT. You wouldn't think he'd get many two-year-olds but perhaps the class of that Juddmonte pedigree will impart some precocity.
  4. Great piece of timing by Gary Harding. Per Incanto's hotter than a Carolina Reaper at present. Fascinating to see what Bonham fetches.
  5. Her sale last year was to dissolve a partnership I recall and I think one of the partners bought her. May have had something to do with.
  6. I see Bonham is in the Gold Coast sale. Interesting call, has it been made public she'll race in Brisbane first?
  7. That's the beauty of an operation like Godolphin I guess, they don't have to 'chase' races. Haven't they also managed Street Boss so well. They've really increased the quality of his books lately and the results are certainly bearing fruit.
  8. Overhead (drone or helicopter) view of his win worth seeking if you haven't seen it. The acceleration from when he props on one leg to clear a pocket is unbelievable. This could be an exceptional crop of male juveniles including the BD winner who was flying home for 4th in the Slipper and the lightning Capitalist colt. Street Cry over Danehill and from the Belle family as is Melody Belle.
  9. Contributor is hotter than a $10 shotgun. Good on you Simms.
  10. They will and good judges buying them which is encouraging.
  11. They certainly miss Steve on the rostrum. Good to see that Morgan Carter has come on though.
  12. Yes, he's been incredibly popular again, which tends to tell you how highly trainers must be rating them. Encouraging for Rich Hill who have a really nice roster of stallions.
  13. There's an interesting story about how Delahooke fell out with Khalid Abdullah. What stands out for me is the style of horse Khalid Abdullah bred, they weren't just another Group 1 winner, so many were excitement machines, who could change up a gear in a couple of strides, but nothing was at the expense of genuineness. Think Kingman, Oasis Dream, Frankel, Dancing Brave, Warning, Zafonic, Frankel, Enable, Rainbow Quest, the list goes on.
  14. I see Coolmore have purchased a majority interest. Don't know how or if that impacts Rich Hill's SH standing rights, hopefully not at all, but that's a big fillip for any young sire to get Coolmore on board.
  15. An outstanding upgrader of the thoroughbred. Not much between Frankel and Dancing Brave IMO.
