Was hoping to use fast company but due to him going to Ireland this won't be an option.

Has anyone got any opinions for 2017 in the UK?

Equiano the obvious one.  Was £7k this year, although will he go up after 5 black type winners this year?

I sense this is one for Proxygene! Have you just one mare, if so give him some clues on pedigree, and are you wanting only proven sires, or maybe value sires in second, third or fourth seasons?

Cheers Paddy I have never really thought about using Equiano before when he had been around, though his progeny seem to be progressing well, and he looks to have got a good one to represent him.

I mentioned to someone about Dandy Man a while ago and I got the impression he might be on the move?

Is there any first season sires that anyone thinks will be decent and in England? I know Darley have Toormore in the club, which doesn't look ridiculous at the price, has anyone seen him in the flesh to comment?

Swiss Spirit has his first 2yo next year and his stock seem to have been well received. He might be worth chancing again for a reduced fee hoping he has some good success next year.

Formtwist has proxygene got anything to do with those free seminars that are on this week or is that a completely different business?

Is Twilight Son racing on next year or off to Cheveley?  Shallah?  Profitable?

Hi Logikal, no I dont have enough (any?) followers to put on (even free) seminars. I have an ageing website with some explanation on it and offer pointers for specific named mares. In November I retreat into a bunker to put all 2016 data into the program and dont emerge until December. PM me if you have an interest, the first one's free....

Hey sorry about the late reply. I think Twilight son should be okay but would be tempted by Mayson.

I do like some of the Aussie sprinters such as Foxwedge and Helmet, though I'm not sure if Fox wedge would be okay. I hope you are okay in your  bunker proxy!

Yes stocked up with firewood and pot noodle.
Looks like Foxwedge not quoted anywhere.

Proven sprint sires at £5k or under:
Monsieur Bond
Captain Gerrard

Any of them good value? or any more?
Report Formtwist November 3, 2016 11:42 PM GMT
I'd add Firebreak to that list and perhaps Stimulation has achieved enough to warrant consideration.

I did have FB Formtwist. Don't know why I didn't add him.
