i suppose anything is possible but its less likely in australia for that too happen. Pretty much all tb's are sold off as either broodmares or pony club/eventers. We don't have an overly active slaughter going on with horses. It does happen but on a small scale and you would never see a horse like this go through one. Ottbs are like royalty here. Well not royalty but they are pretty popular :)
However I shall track his career and every movement so I can get to him before anyone else if he ever comes for sale :) now I sound like a horsey stalker lol
Rach - yes he has been racing very well. He's the hot fav so far this year for the cup. Ah the melbourne cup...'the race that stop a nation' :) I gotta admit that melbourne cup day is the only day I MUST watch the race :)
