Those money-hungry bastards deserve this bloke to be a flop at stud.
They should be forced to put the sport before their commercial endeavours?
I remember thinking that this would be the future for racing when Mike Willisee bought and retired Best Western.
The offspring of sires less than six years old should not be accepted by the thoroughbred studbooks.
Gerry Harvey and John Singleton bought into Best Western, not Mike Willessee. He had Transmedia Stud and Snippets.
The Ingrams retired Crown Jester a few years earlier at the end of his 2yo season. He was beaten once, when unplaced as favourite in the Golden Slipper.
Stanley Wootton retired Best Western’s old man, Bletchingly, after he won after the Galaxy in 1975. He had 5 starts and won 4 of them.
Been happening the world over for aeons, Jeff.
