  2. From the ANZ Bloodstock News' article this morning "Verry Elleegant was not among the entries for the Arc, released on Wednesday, and would need to be supplemented for €120,000 (approx. AU$182,000)."
  3. Baz, I have no real opinion on Pheroz's post. In the case of Phar Lap and Bonecrusher what colour were their respective sires?
  4. It has been just announced VE will be off to France to be trained by Francis-Henri Graffard.
  5. Courtesy of TDN. Armory to join Mapperley Stud roster Dual Group 2 winner Armory (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) will take up stud duties at Mapperley Stud in New Zealand in 2022. Mapperley Stud joined forces with Windsor Park Stud to acquire the multiple Group 1-performer and multiple Group-winning son of the late multiple Champion Sire Galileo (Ire), with the studs having previously partnered up to stand Volksraad (GB), the winner of eight Champion Sire titles. Trained by Aidan O’Brien, Armory won five of his 16 career starts and tallied up four victories at Group level, inc
  6. May not be Cheltenham but Warrambool across the ditch is a very good carnival.
  7. While I agree with the above comments, I think this is a great example of how population has a huge impact. If you took the crowd at Cheltenham as a percentage of even the just England's population (as opposed to the total UK) then I think we probably have race meetings in NZ which would reflect a similar percentage of real horse/racing enthusiasts. But I think bloke's point is very valid --the English really know how to show their pride and enthusiasm. It is something we in NZ seem to have lost in the last 20 odd years.
  8. Interesting thread. Today's ANZ Bloodstock newsletter has an article on what happened to fees in the early 1990's. Look at Tim Rowe's article starting on page 18.
  9. Great analysis Palatable. There a few studs in the CD that could get back into the stallions. Wellfield after doing well with Alamosa had Vespa for a few seasons but I'm not sure they have a stallion at the moment. Fairdale haven't had one for a while and Goodwood also is in the same camp. To be fair to the latter two the younger Fells have taken on the farms relatively recently so they may not be in the position to open the wallets for stallions, but they would be in the position to stand horses for other people.
  10. Arrowfield are putting up 80+ mares for sale on the Inglis (Late April) online sale, as part of a reduction of their stock. Some extremely well bred mares.
  11. I think there a big element of commercial reality in the decision. I cannot see any particular nick or cross in the resultant pedigree.
  12. Looking back at the 2 big yearling sales this year SYT was not exactly flavour of the month. The buyers of his yearlings will be happy, if they are patient.

  13. Will be worth watching. Could be another Needs Further.
  14. Question for you stodge. The Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up sale is on this month. Do they actually do a breeze up like our RtoR sale ? I ask because there is no sign of videos or times on the site.
  15. I possibly stretched it a bit with Fireburn. No NZ female family but still has the influence of So You Think and Zabeel.
