The 1st three in the Guineas could have been had for 120g the lot, the Kentucky Oaks for $ 11,000.
If you take a yearling to the sales with a slight fault and a sire out of fashion you're shafted, even when it's a totally obvious athlete.
Potential owners get out there and fill your boots - the value is stunning!

I couldn't agree more

The pros are so obssessed by conformation that they are no longer prepared to overlook the tiniest fault

Mark Johnston has done well with this, Lucky Story being his best example

M.J. has done it time and time again. My god the results he's had with some**ugly old Yaks are a real credit to him and have given his owners great fun. He doesn't produce what we conventionally see as commercial stallion types mind, which is an unfortunate by-product, but all power to him for keeping an eye on what the job is really about - winning races!
