    Gd replies already! Cheers guys.  Louise - that would be great if you didn't mind ....
    Rgds, Jess
    PS: have been away fm cafe for a long time - felt burned by some of the bitching but most of all, the bullying and arrogance from certain dominant characters on here -  so just dipping my toes back in.  Have in the past really enjoyed the contributions of many here however .. will see how we go I guess  ...

    There are always plenty of little ppl burned in these situations too ... all the contractors & suppliers - and as Nas points out - even down to the people with LFG ...
    Don't know the details of this one but in general terms I've seen enough of the brazen types who run up the red type on the balance sheet - go into insolvency / bankruptcy - welch on all their liabilities (whilst often somehow managing to hang onto personal wealth & lifestyle via wives, trusts etc) - then re-invent themselves only to do it all over again. 
    Never make good to their creditors.  I don't know why people would even deal with those types.  I guess in some cases they don't know their back-story ....

    What is happening with the stud though?  Can breeders have confidence sending mares there under the circumstances?  No agenda here and not bagging anyone but this must be cause for concern/uncertainty? .........J

    Something for you   Berri
    Miss Wilson winner of Saturday's Group One New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes becomes the second Group One winner produced from her dam Cierzo a $2,500 purchase from The Informant.  Miss Wilson now a very valuable mare being a half to 5 time Group One winner Jimmy Choux.    Both horses the results of planned matings using line breeding.
    It perhaps should be noted Cierzo could not win a race and has been on sold for mega times her purchase price.

    A nice story to read Swynford. There are a number of these "bargain buys" which come to mind in recent times, ie dams of Tarzino and Gingernuts, and only last weekend, Mazarine (from the eight carat family), the dam of Vinery Stud Stakes winner Hiyaam was purchased (not in foal) from gavelhouse a couple of years ago for 6k.
    I guess the possibility of having this good fortune keeps a number of people interested in breeding and racing, although of course the odds are stacked against you being one of the lucky few.

    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 ...)

    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...

    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 ...
