    Caulfield Cup Field?

    Not sure Mustajeer could be described as a jumper. He's probably a better Metrop or Melbourne Cup horse but his form is not bad. 3rd to Magical (ranks top Cartier point scorer so far) in Gp1 WFA in Ireland is good form albeit he was beaten a margin. 2 lengths behind Cliffs of Mohar ( 3rd in last years Caufield Cup) gives you an idea of his ability.

    Just second hand...

    Apparently Winston Peters gave an interview this morning where he said that if the racing clubs didn't sign over the rights to the racecourse assets, then he wasn't going to proceed with the Racing Bill?!?!?! Only hearsay but it was on radio this morning....anyone have any suggestions as to how to find that interview?
  3. Trumpie....that is not a good watch. Forget the sensationalism...the cruelty factor of the workers at the slaughter house was unacceptable. This is something that NZ Racing needs to really get right. One of the problems though is that humans in NZ are getting further and further away from horses due to lack of opportunity, health and safety, lack of funding for the alternative horse usages, and laziness. It's not going to get any better either.
  4. is anyone else having problems with the NZTR replays downloading as slow as Donald Trump's brain? Happens all the time for me from different locations.

    Very nice filly by Vadamos at the recent sales in the UK. If they're like this in NZ then he's in for an interesting journey Is a half to Desert Encounter who starts in the Washington International shortly

    DEAN MCKENZIE RITA QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

    I can't seem to open the PDF. Don't know why. Any chance of it being sent or posted elsewhere. All I get when I double click onto it is a temporary arrow pointing down on the left bottom of my screen then nothing else. Tried copying the address into a new window but still didn't work.

    Benbatl

    Still got his nuts in. Seriously good horse. One of those animals that got pulled off his grid by having a crack at the Derby. Won his first start over 1400m by 7. Then taken on the Derby journey. Still managed to run 5th. Shows he was quite a mature 3yo. Dropped back in distance and now rated 123. latest win over 1600m and he killed them. Running 2nd to Winx is not a disgrace. He would make an interesting stallion down here . Interesting balance of blood. Pedigree is very interesting. 4th dam is La Mer (she was a freak when we had good horses racing in NZ) and 2nd Dam was one of the Arab's first group winners as a breeder. Bahr was a gorgeous filly.

    Benbatl

    Benbatl was brilliant – but what about you know who? Benbatl was breathtaking at Newmarket on Friday. Leading from start to finish in the Group 2 Joel Stakes, he sauntered to a five-length defeat of King Of Comedy, who on his previous start had been beaten only two lengths by Japan in the Juddmonte International. Back in a distant third was Zaaki, a dual Group winner this season. Benbatl (left): no match for Winx in last year's Cox Plate Vince Caligiuri/Getty Images This was Benbatl's first run of 2019. On his last run of 2018, when he equalled his then personal-best display, he was readily dismissed by the incomparable wonder that was Winx, whose absence from this column in recent months will undoubtedly have disappointed so many of you. Blimey, she must have been good.

    I'd extend that to if the performance of your chosen market segment hasn't shown any improvements over the past year, then you go.
