Hi all, I just wanted to ask about the Australian sires and some information regarding them. I know a few things like Mossman gallopers like the wet, Zabeel needs blinkers etc. Anyone else got any other information on other sires. Thanking you in advance, Ken
blinkers doesnt work with all Zabeels though. Elusive Quality stock show tremendous ability on the training track but can be very 'soft' on race day so the reports will always say his stock fly in track work. Dubawi looks like his best foals are fillies - ditto Reset. Octaganol is a great broodmare sire. Redoutes generally dont like the wet. Snitzels love it. Volksraads progeny seem to race with a high head action? More Than Ready breed generally swim. A Pentire that can't win under 2000m is a hurdler. Savabeel throws most of his staying ability to the colts/geldings rather than fillies. Charge Forward throws small types so big weights is always an issue. Fu Pegs love the wet but are extremely high strung. Dane Shadows like wet. Encostas are always better as late 3yo/4yo. Catbird stock swim. Doesn't seem as if Hussonet breed train on past 4yo.
I'm a breeder Ken, so might be able to answer some questions. What type of info were you after? I breed a lot of my mares with up and coming sire's, so can help a little with the unknown..
Thanks anyway Mikka, more into the punting side of things. Thankyou very much Money, cleared up a lot of things!
These are general rules not hard and fast......The O'Reilly's like 1600m plus and dry tracks, Fastnet Rock's progeny are best up to a mile and on dry tracks. Zabeel is a great broodmare sire. Wet track sires of note - Magic Albert, Canny Lad, Commands, More Than Ready, Bianconi, Half Hennesy, Shamardal, Invincible Spirit, Anabaa, Royal Academy etc Broodmare Sires of wet trackers - Flying Spur, Marscay, Military Plume, Straight Strike, Red Ransom, Desert King, Snippets, Woodman etc. Sires to follow - Savabeel, Starcraft, Redoutes Choice, Fastnet Rock, Commands, Galileo, Bel Espirit, Darci Brahma, Dubawi, More Than Ready, Stratum, Exceed and Excel, Barely a Moment.......
I thought MoneyTalks summary was concise and brilliant. I would love a mare summary from him too!
Anabaa - his breed are gun fresh horses! I think the brown/bay progeny of Dash for Cash have more ability than the greys although Chase The Rainbow might be an exception!
