Kid, is this still the Lonhro-Lady Helissio filly?

I've not had any experience with Begg.

One thing to note: Looking at the breeding of this filly and observing how Begg likes to be patient with his horses, I'd say she wouldn't have many, if any starts as a 2yo. She is bred to get over a bit of ground and be better as an older horse.

Depends what you are after...

I have never heard anyone say a bad word about him as a bloke.  Only just a horse a trainer.

Thanks Goat - Yep, sure is. I heard Begg say in an interview that he saw her more as a 3 year old filly.

Grahame Begg to close down Randwick stables

Clinton Payne - 21 Nov 2014

Long-time Randwick trainer Grahame Begg will shut down his operation at Randwick at the end of the year.

Begg made the announcement on Twitter on Friday afternoon.

"After 25 years I am closing my Randwick stables in December,” Begg said. "Thank you to my family, clients & loyal staff.”

Begg, the son of former top trainer Neville Begg, and in his time as a travelling foreman for his father he handled some of Australia’s best including the 1984 Australian Horse of the Year Emancipation, November Rain, Dalmacia, Veloso, Heat Of The Moment, La Cassiere and Travelight.

Begg once described training horses as "a way of life” and he continued the family tradition when he took to training with a host of Group I winning gallopers to pass through his care.

His first taste of Group I success came in the 1990 Doomben Cup when successful with Eye Of The Sky before Whisked doubled his Group I winners later that year in the Thousand Guineas.

His first dual Group I winner was the former topliner Telesto, who in 1994 won the Chipping Norton Stakes and George Ryder Stakes.

In 2005, Begg achieved arguably his greatest training feat when Monopolize claimed the Group I Hong Kong International Bowl before repeating the dose 12-months later.

Bonanova won the Sydney trainer his first Emirates Stakes in 1999 before All Silent ended a nine year Group I drought in the same race in 2008. Twelve months later that quality galloper claimed his second Group I win in the Patinack Farm Classic.

Begg’s last Group I win was in the 2011 Epsom Handicap with the talented mare Silent Achiever.

In total he trained 10 individual Group I winners to success in 14 Group I races.

No surprise - poor bugger's been going terribly for the past couple of seasons.

You would think they could get the names of his horses correct.

Long time out of the news and this was a lucky escape for both horse Mossinaround and strapper on the way home from Caulfield races on Saturday the float caught fire fortunately only one horse and strapper were in it and evacuated safely.

Not everyone is so 'surprised' -- ask Daniel Ganderton who rode a first starter and got 3 months -- ask TAB punters who watched the silent achiever turn things around in 7 days and then had to stomach the post-race interviews.
