Was Doriemus’ Sire, Norman Pentaquad standing in NZ and did he sire other goodies other than Doriemus? 

Yes he was. He stood a Grangewilliam.
Then he was bought by Kerry Packer and became what many believe, was the best sire of polo ponies in the world. He may have sired another SW or two, but certainly not many.

Interesting story about zed, a sire that no one really fancied early on, and was sent to a station in the Canterbury high country to serve station hacks, along with St Reims, who I think passed on and was buried there, interesting how things can change, how they will be lining up for him, mind you many more opportunities in Australia for staying horses, and they just know how to train them.

Was the dam of WINX (Vegas Showgirl) born at Grangewilliam or just served there? 

Vegas Showgirl was by Al Akbar so Winx  mother was served there as she was meant to go to Batavian but he died so they picked to go to Al Akbar.

Did a Google of Norman Pentaquad , very interesting life . Dodged a bullet  a few times , he had an extra spare  hoof growing when born and was small and runty  , was lucky as a blueblood so got it cut off and given a chance ,  earned 500 bucks on track in US but dodge another bullet when brought to NZ , then was going to be released in bush but was brought by Kerry Packer and as of 2009 was putting his now only four  feet up at KPs ranch

La Mer bred at Wynthrope stud in New Plymouth and when finished racing was brought by Captain Tim Rogers who set up Grangewilliam Stud

Cheers for that , knew Tim Rogers was involved so assumed he had bred her .

No, you were right. Winx Mother is Vegas Showgirl. Winx Mother was by Al Akbar. Bred by Graeme Rogerson and another party. Winx grandmother was Vegas Magic, bred in Australia by Voodoo Rhythm.
