I can only assume that Sheikh Mohammed is unable to find any time to set his stud fees. I imagine that as times are tough in Dubai he has to do his share, making the tea for the builders, and I gather he does the late shift on Wednesdays cleaning the loos in the Burj foyer. Still at least he is keeping busy, unlike all the stallion men over here who are obviously too frightened to set their fees until Darley publish. Given my recent results at the sales and the stallions reluctance to proposition my mares, I have decided to take up breeding Budgies instead. It appears to give endless enjoyment. . .
