Reckon its their money and their horses so they can do as they please .
They won over  a million with Gee Gee Blackflash  ( ? Think thats it, SD ? ) and it never left Tassie.
Good on them, i reckon.

Correct Acacia, over the mill down here. first time achieved. Gee Gee is more of a representation of a previous property from memory. same as we preface ours with Sh'Bourne.  its named after our farm - Shannonbourne. we just have a tad less runners.LOL

what a run by the horse in Race 5.  Doublejay.
missed the kick and tailed off last,  still last on the turn at MV,  and still ripped home for a fast closing second !    bloody good run.
the other one didnt pike it, just raced wide all the way.  they both did well and didnt let the side down.
hopefully they pick up enough prizemoney to pay the ferry costs !!

A bit off topic, but does anybody know the status of that boom 2yo 'GeeGee' that people thought may come over for the Blue Diamond?
