When we put the tender in there were two people with the same amount. If the others had got it, the place would have basically been pulled down and converted to dairy. So I said to Jacob do you want me to send over some papers and get things signed up? (1-53.8 AUS), Wick (1-52.8 USA), Ardens Choice (7 New Zealand wins and $282,296), The Manipulator (4 New Zealand wins), Straight Thru Blue (6 Australian wins), Southern Pursuit (4 New Zealand wins), Little Rascal (8 New Zealand wins and 2 Australian) and Glenisla (10 wins Australia).
Obviously Charlie didnt want that to happen and we ended up getting it. Hed been quite a nice horse early on but he broke down. I got a phone call about a week later from Jacob Millar. Mc Intyre says he generally gets between twenty five to thirty mares each season. He was North America Two Year Old Sire of the Year with his first crop.
Relative to the number of races ran on course turnover is slightly down at -3%, off course and fixed odds combined is up 12.8% with stakes paid up 18.3%.
These results are extremely pleasing to the Board and the clubs.
Buying stock off Tuapeka Lodge isnt new to Mc Intyre.
