O'Reilly Rocks

Thursday, March 10, 2011 10:30 AM

It’s not unusual for New Zealand-bred stayers to capture major Australian stakes, but it’s less common for them to strike in the shorter events. This weekend, however, the New Zealand-bred 3-year-old filly Shamrocker upset the colts (led by Elusive Quality ( TrueNicks , SRO )’s son Bullbars), to capture the Australian Guineas (gr. I, video below). Shamrocker... Read More...

Paint It Black

Wednesday, March 02, 2011 12:00 PM

The King and I

Sunday, February 06, 2011 3:30 PM

While thankfully not (not yet, at least) being quite as folically challenged as Yul Brynner, we do have a connection with a King who has played a staring role in the orient. Having recommended the mating for King Kamehameha, whose dam was sold to Japan carrying that horse, we we’re delighted when he captured the Japan Derby and subsequently earned a title as...

No Doubt

Tuesday, October 27, 2009 8:37 PM

It might seem hard to believe, but only a handful of years ago, Sadler's Wells' legacy as far as the extension of his male-line appeared to be in severe doubt. That is no longer the case, and we were treated to a number of reminders of over the weekend. Sadler's Wells' son, High Chaparral has been rather in the shadow of his stud companions Galileo and Montjeu... Read More...

Storm Cat-Line Stallions Dominate Weekend Action

Monday, March 23, 2009 11:13 PM

Although he's also had plenty of top-class runners on dirt or turf, there is no mistaking that his offspring are just killers on synthetic surfaces, be it California's more turf-like version, or the deeper Turfway Park going that Hold Me Back...
