    Seeking Location Mare by Brocco

    Have you tried the NZ Thoroughbred Breeders (Canty, Marlbough, West Coast, Otago) Face Book Page to ask?

    Another Wingatui trainer passes

    He also had Antrim Lad & a Zenno Rob Roy stunner (unraced because of injury) stallions. La Affaires dam, Latestu & her Antrim Lad filly we foaled for him among others. Leggy, would you be the one to contact. Tried to look in ODT for funeral details as his former Best Man was wanting to know when, where etc Shaun was also his Best Man.

    They should be running R60 races for 1 win horses instead of them competing against 5 win horses who have dropped back in the grades and then get an apprentice up. Very unfair and it happens all the time & looks deliberate in cases. This is why there is congestion and it the 1 win horses who cannot get a start and get put into emergency B! B2 B3 B4 B5 B6 & so on until their owners get sick of paying bills for nothing angive the game away. Why can’t the handicappers see this glaring fact? This is where we haemorrhage horses and disillusioned owners from and meantime the higher grades race with minimal fields and make money.

    Shaun was getting Jaggard back and kept asking if I knew anyone who would like to stand him anywhere. Very well performed stallion with great lines (double of Vain among them)

    So sad, Shaun was a fountain knowledge and had contacts all over the world. He lived for breeding & I will miss his weekly calls immensely. He knew it all without a computer and could go back years with such clarity. His favourite line he spoke of was Paper Money as being so important and he is showing up in many good horses today. He was so generous sharing his knowledge with any other breeder who had a passion for pedigrees. There will be many on this site with whom he regularly rang for a chat.

    There will be no festival sale (book 3) next year so no use breeding for that market

    Go Winnie

    They won’t because they won’t go without any things they regard as normal, to save. They want it handed to them on a plate.

    "Coloured" thoroughbreds
