| Of course it was lol this is the only time I’m going to play the game. |
I contacted Darren Puleio on Facebook messenger. Offering to buy the bitch ‘Nicki Fields’. With interest in her as a Broodbitch.
On the 11/2/2015 Nicki Fields race record stood at no city wins 18 starts 5-3-3...Sandown Sunday 30.00(m), Cranb 30.67, Sale 37.44, Ball 37.87, War 39.40, Geel 39.05
The substantial 5 figure offer wasn’t enough for the owner to sell. However, a snippet of our conversation below.
Any interest in selling your greyhound Nicki Fields...if so how much would you consider?
Thanks for the offer but that's not enough to entice me. As I said I intend on breeding with her myself when she finishes racing.
I bred her and her mother and she's also named after my wife. Any suggestions on who to go too when she is ready?
Fair enough Darren...******* would be my limit on her. plenty of good matches for her...the likes of Barcia Bale. The exciting part to her is veing devoid of Brett Lee and only a distant line of Malawi's Prince opens her up to a wide range of sires.
Barcia Bale x Nicki Fields - Hooked On Scotch...
N.B Barcia Bale only had his first crop racing at the time and Fernando Bale was still racing throughout 2015!
I have my own litter about to whelp in a day or 2...in the recent mating section on Data.
Fabregas x Pennybacker
The reasoning is well documented by me in another topic on Data such as the ‘nick’ between Fabregas and Big Daddy Cool.
Something I didn’t reveal though, was the origin of the Fabregas/Big Daddy Cool ‘nick’ - Peggy May (Bearability/Big Daddy Cool).
You only need look at the breeding of Fab Fit and repeat mating Elegant Eleanor to see Bearability at play in Fabregas with his Kissy Bear dam line.
However, I’ve used Fabregas before over Pennybacker’s mother for the same above reasons...named Rocastle.
Rocastle (1 pup litter) whelped Sept 2017
Broke in Goldenview Greyhound Complex in 20.00 (run home 12.57). N.B my bitch Frieda Las Vegas (20.15). Breaker comment “Very impressed with this boy, especially his strength.” Casey Dargusch (Golden View)
With pre-trainer Dave Knocker trialed 22.56 Warragul after the last at 16 months (FFA on night went 22.65 BON) rec Aston Bolero 22.07. After first slip around Sandown, Dave Knockers comment “Gee whiz how good are you”
Being trained by Group winning trainer Rob Tyler.
Rob Tyler comment “this dog is a freak! It’s scary how fast this dog is...nothing I have in the kennel can go with this dog behind the drag up my straight! My good dogs Zipping Brady (Richmond Riches Maiden winner 30.65), Modus Operandi (G3 Xmas Gift, Wentworth Park 29.85) go 19.25 and 19.30 at best up my straight..nothing has ever broken 19. Rocastle breaks 19 every single time (18.90)
Trialed Richmond 330m 18.50, 18.62 (rec Caviar Quality18.28).
Rocastle first slip at Wentworth Park 15.06 (Zipping Truvy 15.00, Get It Gizmo 15.11)
Tragically Rocastle went amiss and never raced!
Therefore, it’s only natural for me to put Rocastle’s 1/2 sister Pennybacker to Fabregas! It’s worked plenty of times!
Fabregas = 3/4 Benarkin/Powerhouse (Bearability/Sobbing Sal)
Paper Jet = 3/4 True To Do (Wary Suspect / Worth Doing)
Special Cyndie = 3/4 Cyndies Magic
Prankster = 3/4 Bit Chili
Gable Drum = 3/4 One Tree Hill
