Breeders trading between themselves?

As for 639, Hallowed Crown has been a hard breeding-barn sell for Arrowfield and this might now be the case with his yearlings.  Maybe it's the Street Sense aspect because you'd be hard pressed to fault his bottom half.


Thanks 2nd
Im still puzzled. I might have to make a phone call and see if I can get a small share on the cheap.
Love both families

Did I hear right, Sunlight was the most expensive purchase to win the millions at only 300k?

Probably true.  Most winners come from the mid range but prices have got dearer in the last three years.  Very hard to find a good won selling below $100K now.

Understand your sentiment mate and I'm not there to see confirmations etc but some from very nice families did go cheaply

The most expensive horses rarely deserve the price tag, nor go on to recoup it. Seen enough provincial one win wonders for $750k and in my view they are either buybacks or backdoor deals. Or some expert judges are very poor at their job.

Well Kaepernick has won back his price tag of $400K and went close at the weekend.  No Looking Back was first past the post in the MM only to loose on protest and she cost $500K and won that back also.  Plenty of horses ie Winx don't come back for this race day.  They have other races in their sites.

Realistically everybody should keep their hands down once bidding hits $300k-$400k.  As you say, hard to know what's legit when the big $$ get thrown around.

The interesting thing about Winx was that she was the third choice on their list of potential purchases. By the time she came in the ring they had been out bid on 2 and someone had to persuade their bidder to make one last final bid. Call it fate, good fortune or just being lucky but Winx has certainly paid them back with plenty of thrills as side from the money.

They need to thank the buyers of the previous lots for out bidding them.
