Exactly.   But when some of us said that in the first place, we were told by the experts .  She is a race horse and she should be racing Evil Smile
Or.  Its their horse and they can do what they like with her.LOL
Well.  They did .  And she made them look stupid.  ClapClapLOL
Thankfully she is still in one piece , and not broken.   Shame to see a great little girl go out like that, thanks to greedy owners.  Thumbs Down

Exactly. As I said to all the other whingers, you had a chance to buy her. But you didn’t.

Did anybody ever have the opportunity to buy her? I think the deal was cut and dried while she was still racing and before her retirement was announced. New owner pretty hard to outbid anyway 🤮

At least the plug was pulled after two runs this season, she's now had had a couple of months to recuperate, and will hopefully do Australia proud in the Japanese broodmare barn.  Thumbs Up

People in glass houses.

Any number of mares have been exported to Japan without later incident. Compared with Australia where a very significant number of horses, thoroughbreds at least as many if not more than other breeds, finally end up in Pal.
