all it proves Hamish is how pathetically weak NZ racing is now.

Of course Arakan. Like the Aussie horses that have gone over recently have dominated, haven't they  :wacko:

OK. You must have everyone enthralled with your intelligence. Do tell us the scientific facts about crayfish brains. And while you were at it, can you post Australian horses great record in NZ.

Facts please, facts.

Sir Slick put together a strong record of Group One wins in NZ, but when he raced in Hong Kong and Australia he was simply outclassed.

For him to return to NZ and win another Group One is, quite frankly, embarrassing.

That would be the worst Thorndon Mile field I have ever seen.

Plenty of horses don't "travel" and regain form when they return home

Hamish, even you would admit Sir Slick couldn't get hot over here and not just getting beat but lapped.

Are you trying to say he's improved?

If he hasn't, what does that say about the class?

As for the Aussie horses, how many have actually gone over? Turffontein recently?   :lol:  What others? Redute's Dancer? for the Derby the other year, he was hardly in the top echelon either.

Sir Slick should have gone to Sydney. Even he could win there.

It hurts, Arakaan, but you're right.

A couple of very ordinary Aussie horses have won the Auckland Cup down the years. Maguire was one.

Be interesting to see how the Aussie 2-y-os go in the Karaka Millions at Ellerslie tomorrow.....

I ahve not read every response on this debate, but i wouldsay all it means is he is a home boy.

That was far more honest than anything he did in Victoria.

I have to agree with Arakaan on this one. 

If Coniston Bluebird wins a Group 1 race in Australia, then that horse that did beat him 6 weeks ago by many lengths in Sydney is a champion.
