Ran Winx to under a length in the Cox Plate and certainly seems to be the up and coming star.

Bred in NZ by Teofilo out of Zabeel mare Zalika.

Started his career off in NZ but now with Darren Weir.

Win the Blamey was first class. Looks to have a bit of upside too.

Could be a mouth watering clash with Winx coming up in the QE2.

Sad to watch this fellow yesterday in Perth. :sad:
The 3 time Group 1 winning, 4 million earner does not deserve this.

Very toey yesterday(even for him) would suggest he's been given a bit of a reminder :shrug:
Came from NZ with a handicap rating of 102 and after the Weir 'polish' was applied reached a high of 118......hard to imagine what Humidor rated yesterday.
Yesterday would have been his worst run ever and to be beaten home by an 88 rater at WFA was hard to watch.
He's more than paid his dues to racing and no doubt would have taken his turn on the D Weir treadmill......so he's copped a lot.

Still has some NZ ownership so maybe a spot for him can be found for him in NZ's Living Legends

Bit of a modern trend with today's 'good 'horses...their ability doesn't begin to wane gradually .......just seems to disappear quickly.

He is finished - cooked and has been for some time.

That's probably a fair enough comment but he did suffer a suspensory injury.
His 5th in The Caulfield Stakes last spring looked promising but nothing since then.

He certainly did look to me to be a different shape than he was in his Weir days.

His health would have hardly been improved by his time with Maher and Eustace.
Full on users of Lasix to join Waller and Edmonds (2 of Australia's winningest trainers) to be caught using a powerful diuretic which is now described as "normal treatment" for a racehorse. :what:

Aah the racing industry.......has all the right integrity ingredients to take into the future. :no:

Horse racing?......a future?......no chance!
