    If my dream of owning a champion 2yo horse are to come to fruition this season then at some stage she has to knock off Brooklyn Hustle. Wow, wow and wow!! What a horse.

    Brooklyn Hustle unlikely to run again until the Blue Diamond prelude in Feb. It isn't nominated for the MM so not an impediment to your nags tilt at superstardom.

    Only 269 remaining MM nominations to overcome but Not A Royal Doubt isn't amongst them. Is the cost of futile interstate ventures included in the monthly fees or are they an add on for owners? Also wondering about nomination and acceptance fees?

    I am waiting to see how MAHUTA goes as at stud. Is in WA and his first lot of foals have been produced. "Roll the Dice" syndicate raced Mahuta and will likely end up with one or more of his offspring. I think most will stay and race in WA due to owners/breeders incentive schemes.

    Didn't show much, if she does have any ability she's not ready to race yet. Trainer reported she was leaning against the barrier before the start having a look around at everything and when the gates opened she she was a bit surprised and was caught off-guard and hesitated. He was happy she started stretching out after about 400m. Off to the paddock for her and we'll see what the new year brings.

    Looked very green, if it gets its head around the start/barrier stalls it might go okay....held its ground against the rest of them and jockey didn't give it much persuasion. Head pointing off to the side is something often seen in young/immature fillies and colts.

    Perce Galea, a former "colorful" Sydney racing identity and large betting punter was once quoted as saying he never bet on 2yo's or maidens due to the likelyhood of them being too young or stupid to win a race.
