Shayne Rogers I bought the Skilled gelding a few weeks back from Echuca sales AKA Laddie.
Hope he can do the same. Hes a gorgeous boy already loving his new home. We are hoping to lease share him soon. 😀😀😀😀😀


Lee Purchase Hi Shayne Rogers I led him in the ring at the Inglis sales.. He did not deserve to be where he ended up and that even came from my boss when I told him.. Huge good lucks with him.. Hope he wins a race for u
"Boss" = Weir

Shayne Rogers Hi Lee Purchase. I was just discussing you with my good friend Renee quilty. Lol 😂😂😂
Were your ears burning 😂😂😂
Renee mentioned all the great work you do over that way.
He is
a gorgeous loving boy who just needed some time.
Would be great to keep in contact with you with his progress.
Thanks Lee.

Lee rehomes all Weirs unless owners have already placed them. Some feat considering the huge numbers but remarkably the 'sacked' paddock is quite often empty Star

And Captain Material btn a whisker into 2nd at Hanging Rock on NYD. He's a J & S Laxon escapee in shocking order at the time.

He was purchased from the knackery for $800 (probably $350 at auction) as an unraced early 3yo sent in by John & Sheila Laxon Ouch
Note the hind shoe hanging off, they couldn't even be bothered to pull his shoes!

Yes but I think it was mainly involving the Butlers &  Mr Fielding.

This makes for interesting reading & explains why stock were likely not to have been afforded the level of care most would expect from an A grade trainer.

yes, and many was the time i would have liked to have said mr owner whats your address and i will send your horse back.

many is the time the trainer is left with the horse and its welfare because owners dont understand that until ongoing arrangement is made the horse still needs looking after, and owners dont like ongoing bills for an animal not racing.

most trainers live with and build the relationship with the horse, not the owner.

sometimes the quicker solution has to happen.

nip it in the bud? look at the breeding side of things.

They had to leave Vic in a hurry. Mortgagee seized property so Horses that we’re unable to be taken to owners properties or moved to Qld were just dumped at Echuca on the way through

BY Grace Ramage racing.com
While most eyes were focused on the Magic Millions raceday, a heartfelt story was unfolding at Healesville.

The Robert Kingston-trained Captain Material broke his maiden after just four starts in the 1000m event, which is a nice little feat in itself.

But when you consider the six-year-old’s backstory and how at one stage he was just days away from the knackery, it means so much more.

“The story of Captain Material is wonderful, it’s a proper rescue story,” Mornington-based Robert Kingston told Racing.com on Sunday.

“Kylie Stevenson [now managing owner] and a group of like-minded ladies keep a close eye on what is going on and what is going through the Echuca Sales.

“Three years ago they saw that this particular horse was sold to Laverton Pet Supplies, so they contacted them and they were able to rescue him for $500 or something like that.

“Kylie had him at her property for about 12 months and then the group all pitched in and decided to put him in training.

“He came to me last April and since the day he arrived he eats like a horse who was deprived of food at some stage in his life.

He is such a happy horse now and he’s a pretty little fella, he is only 15 hands and he is such an easy horse to train.

“He is a pleasure to have around the stable, he is happy to be here and we are happy to have him.”

Kingston and the ownership group were overjoyed by Captain Material’s efforts on Saturday and the young horseman is confident the gelding will be able to go on with it now and get another win on the board when they take him to the races again in a few weeks.

“Most of the owners were at Healesville and they were over the moon, they were so delighted,” explained Kingston.

“The horse had run second at Hanging Rock the start before and even though picnics prizemoney isn’t great, I said to the owners I think we should go there and get a win with him.

“The owners went nuts posting pictures. For them it felt like it was better than winning the Magic Millions yesterday, there are more pictures of Captain Material on Facebook I can tell you.

“I don’t think [Saturday’s win] will be the finish of him at all, I imagine he’ll win more races.

“Over the 1000m course yesterday he ran 58.5 so I don’t think he’ll be restricted to the picnics.

“On Australia day there are two or three options for him. We can go back to Hanging Rock if we decide and there’s also a 1000m race at Mornington, so we’ll make a decision.”

The day was made even better for Kingston by saddling three winners around Victoria, two at Healesville and one at Werribee.
