Whilst all of our major staying races are being stolen by overseas horses or overseas bred horses imported to Australia, our sprinting stars got a clean sweep in the Darley Classic at Flemington yesterday leaving the Irish horse Slade Power in their wake.

The race was the horse equivalent of the Olympic 100 metres final being a match race between our top sprinting stars and the Irish contender for the title.

Whilst Slade Power is a superb looking stallion who was on his toes in the yard and more than looked to be up to the challenge, he was no match for Australia’s sprinting champions when it came to the race.

Our sprinting stars have restored some dignity to our spring racing season and to the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Good on ‘ya!

I am a Small breeder of Thoroughbred horses for commercial sale and to race. I Started this site to provide a selling and marketing alternative for breeders with weanlings and yearlings to sell. Small breeders in particular can find it hard and expensive to leave their properties to go to the major sales. This site provides us with an online alternative to the major sales. The site can also be used to advertise youngsters being sold at the major sales and, if any youngsters are passed in, the site is an ongoing marketing platform to continue to market yearlings and weanlings after the sales are over. Trainers can also use the site to advertise shares in yearlings that they have bought at the sales.
