I reckon it is a good trait for a stallion.

If they think they are "king of the pack" then their offspring might inherit that.

Turf Ruler was a bit like that and he was a reasonably successful sire. His offspring were often "blessed" with a bit of madness.

Telesto another one.

Sky News reports that So Si Bon was sent to be gelded today. I wish the owners luck.

Gelding has been known to improve the performance of some  horses - Kingston Town for example but it certainly doesn't always work. 

We shall just have to wait and see whether it improves either his manners  or his performances over the next 6 months.

Sunday 30/9 Race 5 Caulfield the Testa Rossa Stakes over 1200M. He has had 2 trials - the first a 1000m trial which he won and then he finished second over 800m.

I though he might have been a good chance in the race on Sunday. However if you listen to what David Hayes has to say about So Si Bon he seems to be saying it will need the run.

So Si Bon is currently $14 so I think I might wait and see if it is fancied at all.  If it just drifts in the market it might just be a waste of money trying to chase my losses from last preparation.

If his trainer thinks he needs the run than I might double my bet.

I want him 100% fresh, 1200m is perfect.

I see where David Hayes is tipping So Si Bon in the 7 horse 1700M Caulfield race tomorrow and it isn't even a wet track. He is also apparently quoted as saying that he thinks, once So Si Bon wins, he will keep winning.

I guess he hasn't been burnt as much as some of us.

Good luck David - I think you'll need every bit of luck in the world for him to win.

He's got me many a time too  :shy:

Sadly I have him on top tomorrow as well but that says volumes about the race   :dry:
