    5) "The sun might rise in the east and set in the west but every now and then you will come across a northerly" - which TWO horses is this quote from the trainer of one referring to before a cox plate duel?

    6) Name the US racehorse recently euthenased after extensive repeated surgeries as a result of shattering bones in a race and complications that arose during the treatment to try and rebuild his leg and what was the race?

    Peter Pan is my boy Barneys Gx5 (I think) Grandsire on his dams side. I'll double check and change if necessary.

    I've seen the Arrowfield brand on someone's horse on here recently. It's the Jockey Cap with two lines? under it I think or one line..... A friend in Sydney had one crazy 17hh grey loonie from Arrowfield.

    Ok very very good stockies - Widden stud is the only australian stud to have NEVER been sold or taken over - 8 generations of one family have run Widden, but Arrowfield could also be correct.

    Yes it was Lee Freedman who said "Its all up to the little people now (Jockeys)" as the barriers closed before they jumped in the Chipping Norton Stakes.

    Ace - correct, the legend Scobie recently passed away - Scobie opened the gates up for other Aus jockeys to try their luck overseas.

    SO...that leave us now with question 8.

    The PUNISHER was an exceptionally brilliant jockey, probably the hardest hitting jockey in Aus racing history who could find a way to thread a horse through almost any gap. D.Oliver lists the punisher as one of his inspirations.

    OK....Round Two....

    1) Who is Gai Waterhouses father, who is Gai married to and Why was her husband "Warned Off"

    2) In the incident which resulted in Waterhouse's husband being warned off a horse was substituted for another horse in a race at Eagle Farm - what was the horses name?

    3) Which horse nicknamed Foo recently retired at 10 with a group one win and which horse did this horse brawl with midrace resulting in them both being sent back to trial for bad behaviour - the horse who was Foo's nemesis has already been the subject of a couple of questions in round one?

    4) Name the senior NZ brothers who are both group one winning jockeys?

    5) Name the father and son jockey team riding at the moment (NO Graeme im not talking about you and your dad)

    6) Which historical stallion became known as "The shot that fired around the world"?

    7) Which historical stallion had spots?

    8) What are winkers? (and no, the answer is not mares in season)

    10) "7 million Australians and Two Jockeys" punched WHICH horse home to win which race and who were the jockeys and who was the horse trained by and why was the horse said to have been ridden by two jockeys?

    11) WHO was the Punisher?


    UMMMMMM Roflmao Megs darlin - if you ask Danny Millar Snr who the Punisher is he will probably make this funny sound mention the horse i own that took him into a garden and punished him - Saxon not Doc btw ;) That cracked me up. Riding at Dash's age is probably punishing enough!

    hey jezzy i took a guess LOL

    Correct questions 2 and 8 - Question 3 half correct Fields of Omagh met this horse on 8 occasions and twice brawled with him through a race. As a result the other horse had to trial again and was probably sent off for more dancing lessons to get over himself..thats a big clue.

    Still laughin about Dash!
