OK before everybody pours scorn on me and the horse Voila Ici lets start with some known facts.

The horse does not care about any of us and I am old and crusty so care is a forgotten emotion.

 

I tripped over this bloke on the studbook and remembered him running for Moody and leading all the way in the 2012 Underwood (bit of a weak year) and getting rundown by Ocean Park in the last 50m.

Was not however aware of his transfer to Shae Eden and Saab Husan and subsequent runs. I Looked at his races in Europe very genuine and tuff, never been a fan of Italian form but he beat some good horses.

So other than being from a dying sire line that was destroyed reputation wise in Australia by Grey Swallow and Mr Sutton, not commercial, I am going to have a look at him

Nothing to contribute, sorry, but I've thoroughly enjoyed your post with my sandwich - thanks!!
I do vaguely remember the horse. Small, neat...rings a bell ...
Will look forward to following this. Happy travels to you and the Bride

So I have found out why not a lot of mares or interest in Voila Ici, the mares to go to him must be very strong winded and able to swim.
He is located on Kangaroo Island.
The Bride is still keen as we both love KI but time is against us.
So a multiple Group stay Stallion with GR1 form in Australia ends up on KI??

Well oldflight we sell all the unwanted mares to Asia and loose countless bloodlines that way also.  As Australians only want the latest and greatest so a sireline or femaleline which was the sales headline act in say 2000 by 2010 are out the window for the next.  Probably closer to 15 years but you get the drift.
