    He has most definitely bulked up Rio he is a really imposing attention loving bull, I was really impressed, I own 50% of a Trade Fair mare that we are now sending his way.

    I've been surprised so many people have opted for the "nice" names for the DT's or is it Racing Australia shooting the not so nice namesdown?

    Trade Fair is brilliant I've always been a fan, I tend to a Rio that 3-7k is a fair range for what is out there with the exception of but a few who I'm my opinion are still reasonably priced.

    WA stud large and small have been smarter of there past number of years with their mating and the mares they have purchased.

    It's tough to lose them mate, I lost a yearling in a storm last season bloody animal went straight through two fences.

    We were lucky enough to purchase the full sister to Yankee Rose last year  before Yankee Rose raced as I always liked All American.  Sold her in May by private sale through Magic Millions to a stud in the east after lots of offers. I can say I have never seen a better looking mare than our daughter of All American and if I had a mare Id go for him. Lovely temperament as well but no pushover. Big, Jet Black and strong.

    Also had a Dash for Cash mare who is eventing now. She only won 1 race and a few places but one thing about her is that she never gave up and always tried her best. Plenty faster than her but not many as her tried as hard and she puts the same effort into everything.

    Hope that can help someone decide.

    The season has now began and I have a lovely Snippetson filly on the ground looking at the foal there is no reason not to send the mare back again this season. Yesterday we had our Trade Fair mare covered by All American. How has the season been this far for PTT's breeding division?

    Ive got a Dick Turpin colt and a Snippetson filly running around the paddock atm. The colt was good size and the filly, who is out of a madien mare who won stakes of $150k+, is a bit on small side. 1st mare was covered by Blackfriars last week and the resultant foal will be a 3/4 brother or sister to Kia Ora Koutou and am sending the 2nd mare back to Snippetson for another try. Also have a stakes placed mare in foal to new sire Safeguard, due next month, who will be covered by Sessions this season and a city winning Oratorio mare booked into Alfred Nobel after she drops a Danehill Express foal for me in the coming weeks.

    he is very well bred. Shame he didn't do much as a racehorse. But if he did he wouldn't be standing in WA anyway.

    I've gone to Demerit with our Commands mare this season.
    I think we will see Demerit grow in strength in time.

    I'm considering a Commands mare that is available at the moment to send her to Gingerbread Man. The fact that the first foal may cost me $70k+ if no one else is interested is putting me off and makes me want to go to a ready to run sale.
  • RIORIO    14,882 posts
    70k and no idea of what you are going to get...Or a breeze up sale where you know a lot about the confirmation, and a bit about if they can run and what they might be able to do. Wish they had breeze up sales in WA

    @Tivers The last Lion????????

    Interesting to be going to such a young bull..If you don't want to name what mare your sending there could you let me know her sire??
  • TiversTivers    7,720 posts
    He's not coming now anyway.
    Injured.
  • OhsomodestOhsomodest    67 posts
    New arrival Mahuta had a solid but not spectacular record on track, but i think he's got a really interesting pedigree; daughters of Northern Dancer (Fanfreleuche) and Sir Ivor (Miss Toshiba) plus influential mares Mixed Marriage and Special/Thong. Could be a really interesting option.

  • DamienWyerDamienWyer    7,693 posts
    Mahuta may be a stallion that connects with a few mares, he may even get one or two quality horses, but he doesn't tick too many boxes as far as I am concerned. I know on here that  my opinion means little, I don't care either way really, but horses that haven't got Stallion pedigree's, haven't won at Gr1 level, not related in their immediate family to any that have, simply are not worth the risk on breeding for the sales ring or even to race for that matter.

    If you want to send 15 to 20 mares of your own, then he is good value for someone to purchase, but at $4,400 a pop I would be more prepared to shorten the odds for success by going to something proven in the same price range.

    I'm sure something out of last year's maiden stallion's and those that are debuting this season, will throw something good, but outside of Awesome Rock I just can't justify the risk against return to recommend.

    I understand the early indications from WA are that more mares will go across to the East Coast this season than in the last couple of years, as there is just a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel in respect to commercial chances going forward.


  • DamienWyerDamienWyer    7,693 posts
    What I mean by commercial opportunities, is that hopefully in two years time when these resulting matings are being presented to the market, it will be in the new Magic Millions venue in The Swan Valley. I'm hopeful that Magic Millions will get serious about trying to attract a buying bench of International and Interstate buyers for the sake of local breeders.

    Why they don't come here at these cheap prices I don't really know. Getting yearlings out of the State I know is an issue, but not that big a problem that it can't be overcome. If NZ can't mostly export their produce, you would think we could if someone set their mind to it.


  • TiversTivers    7,720 posts
    Still the obsession with the sales ring......
    Was just looking at saturdays results.
    ONE winner for the day was bought / sold through the sales.
    One was passed in.
    The other 6 weren't even offered.

    Lot of attention to what amounts to a very small slice of the action.
