Anyone here a Harness Racing Breeder? I’ve Been looking at the APG sales. They certainly have a different style of catalogue. Very hard to read.

Rusty,
I suspect it’s probably my age, dodgy eyesight and dyslexic tendencies. A touch of ignorance thrown in as well


In saying that I find it very cluttered with detail re times at various ages and the over use of bold type does my head in

That’s an interesting perspective.

I grew up in the game, so the pedigree page is second nature to me,and and appears to my eye, identical to thoroughbred pedigrees.

But know that you raise it, I can see where you’re coming from

Rusty
What are your thoughts on the importance of times that proliferate the pedigree pages. Do you put much stock in it given the variety of and the newer design of tracks like Menangle?

Good point.

I'm no longer involved, but if I was, you are correct,times don't have the meaning they once did
IMHO

Sorry mate, thought the link would put in the lot #

Art Major out of Mint Julep. Lot 69 sold for 42k. I might approach them for a 10 or 20% share
