    Blah blah blah ..... Sorry Jazz ... but anything anyone says EVER which is followed or preceded by the words "going forward" is instantly rendered nonsense and not worth reading. Same goes for sentences about "journeys" (unless there is real travel involved) and "let's unpack that" (unless there actually is a suitcase which needs to be relieved of its contents following the aforementioned real travel ...)

    Choosing A Yearling

    I think that's pretty sound advice Insider ... she is a good mare and it's early in her breeding career. And although it seems dramatic signing up to 5 figure sums for a service fee - everything else costs the same however the young horse is bred ... and those costs will in many cases exceed the service fee ...

    OP

    OK - so here is an excerpt from the Stipes' Rpt from Arawa Park today ... GENERAL: Stipendiary Stewards became aware on race morning that O Bosson was not attending the meeting. When contacted O Bosson’s Riders Agent advised that his wish to relinquish these rides had been agreed with the trainers involved on Saturday but due to a misunderstanding this information had not been passed on officially to the NRB or Stewards. I don't know with certainty what the correct/accepted procedure/obligation is for a jockey/jockey's agent to undertake once they decide they are unable to attend the meeting the following day ...

    Huey I'm not so sure about them either. Seems to me some of the programmes only take account of the sire side of things which can't tell the whole story. Lots more factors to be taken into account...

    OP

    Indeed ... and probably most are aware of that? ...it sure was a bit random the way it got thrown into the thread in the first place .... but maybe a response to someone mounting a case for OP to become a saint or get a knighthood for services to racing??

    I'm not sure solidarity is the best descriptor for what he got up do back then ....

    Well good luck with your selection. You have a nice mare and so are in a good position to negotiate a discount on many sires IMO ... J.

    OP

    Probably not fair on the punters what is happening - but I don't talk outta my pocket as I'm very much a small-time punter (when I have a bet at all). Must be darned hard when you are not a natural lightweight .... hopefully he has made hay while the sun has shone and has plenty stashed away and has the option of a change of career before the battle becomes too damaging to the body'n'soul .....

    Berri - do you mean it buffers ie. stops and starts the first time through and you can't watch the continuous flow of the race? This is how it is for me anyhow ...

    $7,000? That'll learn `em ..... a sentence like that will have the cheats around the country trembling in their boots .... What was that cautionary tale we used to get told in our childhood as our elders tried to shape our moral character ...? - oh yes ..."cheats never prosper"
