    Gigginstown House Stud, a revolutionary high cost no frills enterprise- no fripperies at this stud such as stallions or broodmares. 😆

    That’s what I was wondering about, why wouldn’t they breed with her?

    Much as I love her as a racehorse I don’t get the outcry around her sale. If he isn’t interested in breeding from her why not sell her?

    Fair enough to sell her, it just always amuses me that they called their ownership operation a Stud. Kind of like the giggle you get when you see a generic looking new house plonked on a quarter acre boggy site in the middle of nowhere with massive security gates and huge pillars to which is attached a name plaque reading “Loughgrange Manor”.

    Tune in if you want to see her going through the ring shortly- she’s lot 515, just after Barra.

    Gordon on behalf of the Morans. There’s a Jilted John song in there somewhere.

    Jilted Willie

    (And guess who was with him?
    Yeah, Michael, and they were both laughing at me)

    Oh, he is cruel and heartless
    To pack me for Gordon
    Just cos he is cheaper than me
    Just cos he’s cool and trendy…
