    i see Bob has Verry Elleegant's full brother a 3 y.o in training/work and it's going like a dromaderry to date, reportedly very underdeveloped(beaten 15 lengths in a trial).

    Bob's merry go round is programmed to drop a gear every so often & fling the riders into the bush

    No knock on Hayden but dont think Bob and him come from the same side of the street. Hayden would find it hard to "not to say what he thinks" and Bob does not appear to care about trainers opinions "just his wishes". If they get together good luck but I dont feel it will last

    hang on...wait until the split is official.
    if it is true, its a funny time to split with the carnival on our doorstep with Bob looking to have a huge hand in it.
    the last thing you'd want to do is throw the horses out of their routine..

    Grant and Alana own the property. They have made it the best facility in the state in my opinion.

    3-4 years ago it was big news at the Kalg.round they were about to split over disagreement regards day rates. ----But now G& A- maybe in a position to say thats it, ---Heard the wind-up is to be Feb.--Time will tell.--Enormous call on both fronts.if true.

    Would be hard to hand over they keys to some of those horses, Treasured Star just showing what’s to come.

    But I remember an interview I listened to on RSN last year when they had the team over east and most were winning and Arcadia Queen had just knocked off Russian Camelot.  Gareth Hall said to Bob you must be so pleased with the job Grant and Alana are doing.  He couldn’t bring himself to say anything positive about what they’d done, best he could say was they get them fit or words to that effect.  They don’t get post race interviews or any midweek radio interviews, I can see why they might want to go solo even knowing they’ll never get close to these results again.

    Jay Rooney has written an article which states no split.
  • licklick    248 posts
    Not once has Bob ever praised Grant and Alana, even when baited on Tabradio.
  • thefalconthefalcon    18,020 posts
    maybe he should officially train his own horses.
  • LETSDOTHISLETSDOTHIS    227 posts
    What did the article say? Can anyone copy and paste
  • tonytony    2,133 posts
    Basically that while Gratn and Alana will be continuing to train for him, Bob will be sending more of his horses to other trainers.
