    Ok Newmarket  as you seem to be wanting to educate us all on how a top stable operates then why don't you educate us on all the names off the horses that are not fast enough or are broken down by the ALLSTARS  stable that end up at the butchers shop through no fault of there own come on there is always two sides to every top stable don't give us the line there's not many....we will be waiting with interest

    What do you want us to do get out the violin 
    That's  choices you  make in life some of us work 3 or more jobs to pay for what you are playing with ... not to mention the  jobs we do have fine tolerances that can mean life or death.
    Racing is merely a sport that we enjoy don't grumble enjoy it
    Everyone with stock sleeps with one eye open

    All the gin swiggers that agreed should also GO.The way I read it was ATC thought they would make 30 mill by doing some of the sign offs themselves which you can but you have to be smarter than the average mouse they are not , sadly it effects all of us, I do feel sorry for those that sold there houses expecting to be in last year now paying high rents what a bugger.

    I see they are quick to disqualify you if your gate is not good or you gallop unlike here where we hitch and fumble around like a wobbly wheel barrow

    But to be fair to her Iraklis 2 races in 6 days or less was a bit much adding in the travel so even great trainers can get things a bit wrong as she went mighty in ozzie

    Mr AllStars  good or bad for our game !! I look at it like this... they are no different than a Electrician , Builder, Plumber , Engineer we all target certain jobs that pay better for time spent and leave the crap alone. .Allstars is no different they target certain races because there way of thinking is this is the Time and Money  spent you need to go this fast if you cant then send it to someone else and they have the owners with the money to do it is it there fault NO is it the Industries fault NO it is how it is I feel its a bit like not  so long ago people where saying to many CHRISTIAN CULLEN horses are been bred and its stuffing the sport and we should limit mares served.  what some owners need to do if they are after those races is pool your money together buy 2 or three well breed ones instead of 1/2 a dozen average types but they don't call this The Sport Of Kings for Nothing, But you also so need a very good eye to buy them not all of us can. Take WINX she only went for $230 K that was the owners last and final offer as they didn't want to spend 1 dollar more  imagine if you  had 231 K look at what you could have owned, bloody helps though that you come from the inghams family ha ha
