NOTE : ALL IM ASKING IS $12,500 ONO for Mare in Foal with Foal at Foot

I was breeding with intention to racing HOWEVER after REVENTLY being advised i have PARKINSON's Disease.. I am disposing of my investments in Horse Racing

Matthew Ellerton has trained a majority of this family with great success

I purchased her as a late 3yo,.. to breed to TIME to REIGN to race also send her back to TIME to REIGN so she now is In-Foal with Foal at Foot unfortunately the chances of me racing her progeny will not NOT go ahead as I have been Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and could in the near future require a full time Carer.....hence I'm divesting my horse Racing & Breeding Interests
