    You have just highlighted the issue perfectly Whyisit. This is what everyone is concerned about. SOMETHING doesn't add up!!!! A DEAD 5 on Friday evening at 4:20pm, 7mm of rain overnight and suddenly it's a SLOW 9 by 7:00am Saturday??????? Are you kidding me and everyone else??????????

    JB was espousing it was a F2 two Thursday’s before Saturday’s race and that the club were going to irrigate . Great possibility to have gone to a F1 without rain or irrigating.

    I did my picks for a tipping contest on here on Wednesday and from memory the TAB said it was a D6 then. How the heck did it get to a S9 by Saturday morning?? 

  3. And I saw on Trackside today there are still some nominations available for him this year??? He's a freakish sire [ OK - I know I have spruiked him for some time as Zabeel's successor] - but I was surprised to see that. $100K is a lot I guess - but he's worth it surely, if your mare's up to standard???

    Pasadena Girl comes to mind being a G1 winning 2yo over a mile as well as a Listed 2yo winner over 1000m (both in Aussie), Hasahalo Stakes winning 2yo, Gold Fever Matamata Breeders' winner.

    Some of his better performers did win a race at 2 including Sangster, Soriano, Hall Of Fame, Savvy Nature, Addictive Nature, Lady Kipling, Nurse Kichen etc, but were just minor races.

    Definitely not a noted 2yo sire, Masque's full sister is Costume who was a dual G1 winner as an older horse over 2000m.

    Thanks very much Bruce. There were some very good horses amongst those names!! Sort of what I was alluding to....I know Rogie talks his horses up, - but he is a good judge in general. That's why he put Savabeel in the Cox Plate as a 3yo!!!. It was as much a Savabeel winning such an early 2yo race that got my attention. He's a phenomenal stallion and I for one, would be PRETTY excited if I owned one that did that!! :)

    Hallmark weren't part of it.

    HI Jess - Hallmark have some major access issues this season with the main highway going past their gate under construction for some months. A real headache for everyone. Mark would be more than happy to show anyone Super Easy. He's a lovely horse; I'm very happy with my filly and going back this season.
