  1. When Overtheriver scored his 19th win in the Marlborough Cup on Sunday it got me thinking there are some rather handy Broodmares about in NZ that don't seem to get the Kudos they deserve, for whatever reason perhaps either they aren't fashionably bred or haven't been to fashionable stallions. Have a look at the Dam of Overtheriver performance at stud: QUALITY EYES ( By Danzero ex Close your Eyes By Geiger Counter) KRASE (Ekraar) - 11 wins including an Australian Steeple OVERTHERIVER (Mettre En Jeu) - 19 wins to date including several country cups LA FILLE EN JEU (Mettre En Jeu) - 9 wins to date including a G3 & Listed race PETITE EN JEU (Mettre En Jeu) - 5 wins to date Currently in foal to Unusual Suspect Any others anyone can think of?

  3. New to the forum with a question, so please grant me a little patience. If you decide not to breed your broodmare this season for financial or other reasons, is there a facility/forum where you can register your broodmare; where someone else could negotiate with you to breed your broodmare for the season? Or is this fraught with too many difficulties; in terms of responsibility, care and other issues for it to be a realistic scenario?

    The Annual Ripoff

    Got an email for the annual ripoff a few days ago. $110 to register your mare & foal with the studbook or $70 per mare. How in today's world of technology is this still relevant, surely it is time this was made a small token payment whereby the entering of studbook details can be done via the breeders portal on the site(and updated from there)? Where is the $70 worth of value in entering a mare in the studbook? If we have an organisation that has a cost structure whereby it's costing $70 to enter a horse in the studbook then we are totally F##k#$!
  5. Just seeking others' opinion. I have a 5 year old Falkirk mare that won a 1000m trial but was found wanting over 1200m. On scoping she was classified as having a grade 4 paresis. Her dam (imported form USA) did not race but her 3 siblings have won in NZ, Japan and France. She is a good natured, big, roomy mare sound in the legs. Would you breed from her or is there a risk of passing on the wind problem? Thanks for your input.
  6. Hi guys - I am a total newbie when it comes to breeding but want to educate myself as much as possible. Question is - from a fresh base where do I start? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
