    Well I can' afford hundreds of thousands to buy a 'quality' yearling. Doesn't mean I don't spend exactly the same amount as those more well off to look after and train my lesser quality select sale filly. Jesus what a crock. I am one of those new entrants to this racing and breeding game the industry is trying to attract and I feel very unappreciated.

    skoozi got a reaction from Ethereal in May Sale - as a vendor is it worth it?   
    I presume that he has negotiated much better services fees that what is listed, say 20% discount for instance would give approx $70k more in return, so how does that look for covering expenses and net profit ?

    The broodmare section was certainly a surprise, good clearance rates and spirited bidding even at the end of the sale.

    Hardly Huey, this year's weanling aggregate, 1st day, is half of last year and clearance down from 78% to 68%. Aggregate for top 7 was $613K leaving less than $1mil for other 106 sold. An absolute disaster in spite of the spin.
    NZB still clip the ticket, Curraghmore and company still get paid, as do the transporters, vets etc but the non-stud breeders are up the creek.

    Some have great success in the breeding barn, agreeing on a stallion is another thing entirely.

    I haven't had any problems with the Swiss Ace foals I have breed but I think that was a concern when he first appeared at stud, much the same as Savabeel when thoughts of the progeny maybe club footed, I guess you see faults but it isn't until the foals hit the ground that it can be confirmed or dismissed and then the race track stats confirm their ability to run.

    skoozi got a reaction from Yir Tiz in LEG 3 Terminating $500 TAB Voucher Comp   
    As this is terminating and I want everyone to have a fair suck of the sav at the $500, I will have a look at how things pan out weather wise and confirm the nominated race situation tomorrow.
    If I have to add more races and raise the "ANY" number I will at that point.....for example 3 races at HB,Waikato, Sydney a total of 9 races and raise the choose ANY to ANY5 for entrants to have best chance of a competitive total.
    I like your style YT - Back to the golden rule it is !

    Let's see where he turns up, he would not be the worst option for NZ breeders, especially if priced well, I'm thinking that at $3k service fee, he would be a lot of stallion with a track record and a lot of upside.

    I suggest you check out the local RSA or Workingmans club which may be a bit quieter and mare like the Aussie RSLs

    I certainly enjoy the comps, pitting your best guess against others, the element of fun is starting to get lost in translation with comments.
    Thank you sponsors and keep up the good work for all involved !
