karrotsishere Posted October 12, 2021 Share Posted October 12, 2021 Had an idea when time permits to post a weekly midweek round up on harness things that caught my eye. (So will do so on this thread). Since midweek is usually a quiet time. Will head back Thursday to post & add to other threads 😄👍 http://www.harness.org.au/racing/fields/race-fields/?mc=ME021021 1. Karrots has found herself a new Sweet Lou to follow after this spectacular trail win. Will he be the Lou pin-up boy that is needed in Australasia? After pin up girl Sweet on Me retired at 2y-o. Smaltese a 2yo boy nearly broke 1.50 in a trial at Menangle running a blazing MR1.50.2! That is FFA styles. Link attached for those wanting to checkout. Since this trial he has won a NSW Breeders Heat 2y-o boys 2. Sweet Lou in USA yearlings sales was the 2nd top average sire at over $90k. High of $400k for a filly. Will that do anything for his NZ stock at the Feb 2022 sales NZ ... ? 3. Top Northern Jnr Driver A Harrison is set to make her training debut Thurs at Cambridge with Shirley Bassey, in whom she purchased the 3 y-o filly at the yearling sales. Shirley Bassey ran a nice workout on Sat at Cambridge winning by a lengthy margin of 15 lengths. The filly has drawn 1 for her debut. Poster Karrots has already told Poster Harrison previously will be watching & keeping eye on. Spoted ya. So good luck Thursday! Will be rooting ya on. 4. Triple Eights connects have advised that they most likely will not be sending him to the NZ Cup, however he is still to be officially withdrawn. 5. The horse pictured in the red & white colours, clearly starting ahead of the front unruly horses BUT was meant to start off the 10 metre mark. This was a Group 3 feature race on Sunday, The Methven Cup & a Road to the Cup race where horses are still vying for spots. The horse Vintage Cheddar finishes 3rd. Nothing mentioned in stripes report about the fact the horse did NOT start 10 metres back. But more or less from the 2nd row of the front line. No 10 metre tape was put up either. No warning nor fine either for the driver B Williamson or the starter. 6. Following reading an article on HRNZ on a horse called Tornado Banner took a peak at her breeding & she is from the family tree of the GREAT - Twice As Good. No wonder she put up a good 1st up performance and a soon win looks imminent. What I also noted on Gavel House currently up for sale is an unreserved broodmare in Heart Stealer Lot 9 & her daughter Lot 2 Major Majority also unreserved. Also from the same family tree of the GREAT Twice As Good BUT different branch. Currently no bids, with sale closing tomorrow. Major Majority sales write up states that her broodmare none other than Lot 9 Heart Stealer was purchased or 100k. And unfortunately MM had to be re-listed this week, due to buyer S Ramsay pulling out at a price of $800 in last Gavel sale. What I find fascinating is how the lack of interest in both. Big depreciation of value too from a $100k purchase. Thats racing tho I suppose. A reminder that this Friday our selections comp starts here is a link to our generous sponsor of the comp. Big Ups to them. Selections will start being posted Thurs once fixed odds are out. Ill be putting my up then. https://www.tfshorsetransport.co.nz 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
