Japan Cup? Surely they're either taking, or on, the piss?

Owner Allan Endresz says he is prepared to gift Living Legends a share in G1 winner Alligator Blood in a bid to allow the star to compete in Victoria this spring.

It comes after Alligator Blood, and horses Endresz owns the majority share in, were banned from racing in Victoria due to his status as an undischarged bankrupt.

Horses based in Victoria that Endresz is a minority shareholder in are allowed to continue racing.

In a letter penned to Racing Victoria, Endresz said he was prepared to dilute his 60 per cent share in Alligator Blood down to 45 per cent and give the 15 per cent to Living Legends.

He argues that doing that dilutes his share enough to meet the requirements set by Racing Victoria in regards to minority ownership.

Endresz said he had given Racing Victoria until Sunday afternoon to respond to his letter.

Alligator Blood was set to be retired to Living Legends post his racing career and represented the organization as the charity he ran for in the Golden Eagle .

"We had a negotiation last night and they (Living Legends) are off their tree (with excitement)," Endresz said.

"It meets all the requirements, so we will see what happens. I guess we will find out on Sunday."

He was likely to resume in the Memsie Stakes at the end of August with his grand final coming in the Cox Plate.

Endresz confirmed the current ownership would continue to pay all training fees for Alligator Blood, but Living Legends would get 15 per cent of the prize money won.

"It's a complete gift. It's 15 per cent free carry so we are wearing all the costs," he said.

"They walk away with the money, which is quite significant if he can pull of a few of those big wins."

Living Legends CEO Dr Andrew Clarke confirmed he had reached an ownership deal with Endresz.

"When Allan rang me about this opportunity, we were very keen," he said.

"The plan was always for him to come here, now if he can go and race for us and we get 15 per cent ... we couldn't be happier."

Dr Clarke stressed that no money donated to Living Legends would be used on paying bills to race Alligator Blood.

You can see he is falling back on his talent as a Skaise/Bond devotee.

Anyone who thinks he would not receive any prizemoney under that arrangement raise your hand Wacko

Doubtful that Gerry Harvey could sink any lower than he has so this is right in his wheelhouse. Remember, this is the scumbag who took millions from Jobkeeper when in a record trading environment and then when called out tried to laughably claim that the money goes to the employees not Harvey Norman. Well yes Gerry, but that doesn’t change the fact that your company then had a circa $70m lower payroll expense. Confused

He’s also the guy that moved heaven and earth to dissuade Tinkler from continuing his action against Cummings for secret commissions etc.

Heaven forbid if a spotlight was ever shone on the comings and going’s at yearling sales…

Peas in a pod, those two.

But I was surprised and disgusted that Living Legends were prepared to align with this poo. Sure, take the horse for retirement but to publicly come out and support said poo just denigrates them and puts question marks on their integrity. Shame on CEO Clarke.

Allana should not be allowed to own 0.1%. Needs to be banned until Fed issues are sorted.

Maybe Damion Flower can take his share?

RV have rejected his offer re Gerry Harvey
AE now has said horse won't run in Victoria this spring.
Will chat with Gai about sending him to Hong Kong for the big December meeting instead.

Wonder if they’ve sounded out WA Racing?  Lee Steere Stks, Winterbottom & Railway could be an option.

The owner seems like a real dirtbag but prefer to see the horse running in Australia than HK.

Surely, if he is banned in nsw and Vic, HK won’t accept him to run?

Just because you nominate for Hong Kong, doesn’t mean you automatically can go. They choose who they want from the nominations world wide. HK don’t look that favourably on loud mouths.

There is always the remain in Queensland option. They accept almost anybody banned elsewhere, whether it be trainers, jockeys, stewards or others. Wink
