  1. I see he is 2 x 5 to Sadler's Wells.......you don't see that very often, do you...?
  2. Subtrist......yes she left some good ones.....a colt Take Your Leave comes to mind anyway the GBT ones I remember in addition to Show Gate from my teenage years....Every Show, Show Keeper, Going Some, Gates Ajar.....all accomplished Open Class horses
  3. congrats to the connections.....sorry but I'd never heard of the horse until I browsed the fields last night......and with that name I thought surely not..... but yes ....well named ...6th Dam Show Gate......12th Dam Eulogy and then watching the race I thought ...Show Gate's colours.........is that right..........Leo you wore her colours....you'd remember.... anyway congrats to all of those who've kept the Show Gate maternal breed going........
  4. Heard / watched most of the TDN podcasts and enjoyed them immensely......this is my favourite and worth a watch if you have a spare 20 minutes (422) Yarns with Gus: George Smith - YouTube
  5. Trainer's father tells me Steady Ready won a Trial today....."very impressive"
  6. the Heavy Hitters are obviously following this thread clearly they agree with me...............they can all see that the cupboard is looking bare so overnight ........ Coolmore have blown the others away in purchasing into Best of Bordeaux
  7. poor Lofty......what will happen to him.....the Vets won't have a bar of him......hopefully maturity will sort out his gait issues before the new season....they were thinking Sydney with more sympathetic Vets ! Magic , typical of the Sydney colts kept hitting Bog tracks as did Jacquinot in the Slipper - not sure where a son of Rubick would fit in with the Big Studs I would say on this day last year Henry Field had locked-in those three ( then) 2yo colts....who head off to work at Newgate in 4 months time.........whereas today seems there are no 2 yos locked in..
  8. yeah ...you're correct re those stallions....Autumn Suns first start was about Anzac Day wasn't it....... I forgot about Best of Bordeaux....he looks an absolute belter....picture in todays Socials was just a tongue in cheek ramble and will probably be proven wrong........I got a bit bored.......... but I do see 2yo colts now turning up as geldings at yesterdays Rosehill trials.....destined for Hong Kong if they win qualifying criteria Aussie breeding and racing.....always interesting
  9. So I'm reading the front page of today's TDN.....where they've sliced and diced the Five Major Yearling Sales and $590 million of sales compares with $500 million last year.....+4% horses were sold this year so of the $500 million last year I'm thinking $300 million were colts and say $200 million were fillies and of the $300 million of colts..( I'm thinking 500 colts had stallion aspirations, at least ) ........not ONE has put their hand up to be worthy of a position on a Major Stud Stallion Roster arguably Daumier ( Blue Diamond) is the only 2yo colt and he's a homebred (
  10. yes another great day at Woodville hundreds of new faces I'd never seen before.....assume the Dannevirke Pahiatua and Woodville communities were out in force Marty and Di Catering Ltd flat out all day feeding everyone........(everybody knows Marty has the best sausages in the CD, anywhere actually )....they roped in all their whanau to help and did an excellent job, under a bit of pressure too the Head Honcho of Parking does an amazing job slotting all the cars in........well done LJ
  11. .........and here's me thinking it was only George Moore who blew the whistle.......
  12. the literary genius that is Peter Lampp has penned this tribute to his great mate worth a read if you have five minutes Farewell to Stu McGrail, the witty gentleman of the racing game | Stuff.co.nz
  13. Avantage and Melody Belle papered over the cracks for last few seasons dominating our G 1 racing ......take them away.... leaves a large void
  14. an absolute legend here in the Manawatu.........whether it be the newspaper world, racing or bowls - back in the 90's it seemed everyone knew him, everyone loved him.....a finer gentleman you would never meet....RIP Stu..
