BLOCK G

“When it comes to a stud farm, my two vital tests must be passed, for me to buy from that farm again. The first is how the horse’s bone stands up to training and the second is whether the horse holds condition, once in my yard. I don’t have time for soft boned horses. Any fool can fatten a horse up for a sale. Once that fool has walked away, the trainer watches the “puncture”, as the horse fades away.

I am pleased to confirm that Backworth horses have good bone and thrive in my yard. I will be back!

When you can’t beat them, join them! After running second to Backworth-bred Chocolicious in the 2010 Grade 1 Allan Robertson, it was a no-brainer for me - I went out and bought Variometer from Backworth.

There are 600 horses on this year’s National Yearling Sale. I won’t look at them all. But, I will be looking at the 11 Backworth horses in Block G - That’s a racing certainty!”
