  1. Be interesting how many mares breed this year....I'm done no more for me, you can only chuck away so many $$ The girls still live in the lap of luxury
  2. Pogo - one I bred is with Ellerton Zahra out of a staying mare so won't be early - had a couple of jumpouts at Flemington spelled back in work now - I'm not in the ownership just follow. I think they'll take a while...have heard nothing else about them tho
  3. Breeder not sure I can agree with you...for the mare to be possibly in Book 1. In the old days anyway Book 1 were well related, usually a good winner and/or usually a proven producer although there are some pretty light ones in there this year (which would normally have fell into Book 2). You need to stand on your own in Book 1 she'd make Book 2 if her stock are appealing. She herself only raced twice at Echuca, has produced nothing on the track yet although has some coming through but I see your point, a good horse can come from anywhere. Redoute's currently No.1 in the Aussie broodmare s
  4. You can check out NZ Thoroughbred breeders association website they have a section on fillies and mares to lease or contact some of the studs as some may have clients not wanting to breed this season
  5. Yep and if you've got the $$ buy the one you want
  6. Probs lots of reasons Baz - hard sale last year, unless it's a cracker and well developed might be better given a bit of time, been a few in the online sales and they're going well so some may to choose to put in Aussie sales
  7. Think he might be out of the budget, Treat was looking for under $10k - lovely stock tho - my mare had filly by him now in Melbourne with Ellerton Zahra so fingers crossed
  8. I've got a yearling Sweynesse colt - so impressed, athletic, moves super, lovely temperament - would go back but using another mare this season - I think he's great value!
  9. A second surgery for this lovely horse....just to have him recover would be a major achievement - thoughts with all involved in his care
  10. Gee they keep coming - more stallions than you can poke a stick at this year
  11. Surely this should be in Racing Hall of Fame/ museum?
  12. Jason Coutts, Mosgiel - Grassyards Farm
  13. Too little too late you reckon?
  14. Waikato Stud - 2019 Savabeel - Closed book Ocean Park 15k down from 30k Sacred Falls 20k down from 30k Tivaci 20k (unchanged) Rock n Pop 7k down from 9k
  15. Did she have foals in NZ and AUS? Often the NZ studbook just says this mare was at stud in Australia and you can check breeding record on - they just manage those bred here in NZ - I've not had a problem.
  16. Good to know thanks
  17. Huey, I'm not comfortable travelling a mare and foal that distance happy to send empty mare down
  18. Imagine how many good mares he might get if he spent one season in the Waikato
  19. 526 entries last year 240 this year that's a nightmare right there!! Last years sale was tough and my weanling was not there to be dumped. You can understand why many won't be back.
  20. Will also be interesting to see what the stud fees are this year....not that I'm breeding this year or the immediate future.....
  21. Actually be quite interesting to see numbers of mares covered this last season - and I see the South Island NZB catalogue has half the entries compared to last year. New stallions can come but apart from the big breeders will there be enough outside mares....
  22. I'm thankful for the coverage whoever pays for it - watched most of it here free to air on tele ( before todays races. The Mongolian Khans look good.
