Following on from what TC mentioned, the grey horse in my avatar was sired by one of Australia's top race horse sires in the early nineties (Rancho Ruler) and out of an English bred mare (Heavenly Steps). Stud fee of $200,000 thank you very much.
11 starts for seven lasts, no one was better at bringing the rear of the field home than her. The racing industry is hard, no matter how hard you try to improve your odds with good breeding.
All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
