True Story...almost.

421 posts in this topic

I had lunch with an old family friend Janet Fisher today. Her father along with Maurice (who’s garden I used to do) co-founded Fisher & Paykel. My mother went to school with her at St Cuths. 

She owned and bred the useful galloper Prized Touch and we got talking about horse racing then Trevor McKee’s name came up. 

She told me of a story many years ago at the horse sales where she purchased a yearling for 10K. The lot immediately after was purchased by Trevor and he offered Janet a share in the horse. Janet laughed and told Trevor the horse looks like a mutt declining his offer. 

Her yearling she bought ended up winning just the one race whereas the one that Trevor bought won 2 Cox Plates as well as a few other Group 1’s. You can probably guess which horse it was. :ph34r:

The only problem is the story is not true.

The great mare was leased from her breeders Michael Martin & Susan Archer and Trev and co exercised the ROP some time later when they knew they had a decent horse on their hands.

Yet another fantasy from CBT

No fantasy is thinking you could win the Coolmore on a decent track yesterday.  :P

Houston, we had a problem.

You'll have noted the winner finished well behind us at The Valley, as did the fifth horse......we’ll be back....we always are.

How’s the life you lead that is just a great big fucking lie.....fucking “egg man” sitting on your knee one week, Darren Weir shoving his cattle prodded up your chutney the next....and now Trev buying a horse that was never sold as described....

 

Why would Janet lie about that short stuff? 

She offered me that information of her own volition.

Because you’re an imbecile presumably and you’d believe anything. 

Her father did more for racing than you ever will short stuff and she knows Trevor well telling me about the stroke he suffered prior to his passing. 

Why would I have any reason to doubt what she told me? Her father co founded Fisher & Paykel for gods sake and my uncle is best friends with her sister Sue. :lol:

Doesn’t change a thing .... the story is NOT true, it’s as simple as that 

Let’s ask Trevor shall we? I guess we’ll never know short stuff but I believe what she told me and I have no reason not to. 

How did Thayne Green and Helen Lusty get involved? I’m assuming Trevor asked them after he offered Janet a share.

Anyway, you should be spending more time improving that mare rather than questioning factual information. You might finish closer than 19th next time. ;)

Our group one, group two and group three winning mare is just fine thanks, and we don’t need any advice from you

FYI I’ve spent a lot of time around Takanini and Ardmore .....with the subject in question 

Good for you. I’m happy for you. :)

P.S. Did Richo give you some advice for your stylist? The “70’s curtain look” is so last decade. :P

Give up Tommo.....you’ve been caught out lying again, or being lied to because you’re a simpleton who believes anything.

The only person who’s been caught out is you. 

Thank you karma for rewarding short stuff in the Coolmore yesterday and also for styling him. You did a great job. :P

CBT lets stop the assault on someones horses shall we...P4P says that your story is not true so no need to try to fight with attacking his good mare...just prove what you say is true and stay on subject...then there will be no fighting...thanks.

So seems like an apology from Janet Fisher is owed to you CBT and you owe P4P one as well...all things being equal...seems you were given wrong info.

I’ll be waiting with baited breath from short stuff for an apology Leigh having just confirmed what Janet told me yesterday. 

I can’t find Leo Molloy in Wikipedia. Funny that. 

P.S. I think they’ll be more chance of Consensus &/or Felaar winning a Group 1 in Australia than me getting that apology. :ph34r:

Sunline's sire Desert Sun did of course stand at Ra Ora so she would have been well aware of that side of the family.

Correct.

exactly what I was thinking WD.

 

Chris this feels like poor form unless you had her approval to quote ???

How exactly is the truth poor form Colin? 

I’ll tell what poor form is. Poor form is trolling and deliberately disputing an indisputable fact. Something I should receive an apology for but I won’t.

And yes, Janet did give approval for me to quote her and I’m more than happy to give short stuff her mobile number to confirm.
