  • Did you know that most horses in the UK carry the equine herpesvirus?1

    This is sometimes referred to as EHV or the cough and although it can cause serious problems such as abortion and neurological disease, it is

    usually limited to relatively mild symptoms, rather like a head cold. Its easy to miss the signs.

    But you may notice a difference in your horses performance EHV can have a serious effect on its ability to compete successfully.

    Avoid the hidden handicap of EHV. Talk to your vet for further information on how to protect your yard.

    Spread the word not the virus.

    Not protecting horses against equine herpesvirus could affect performance

    Foal loss through abortion is only

    one of the problems caused by equine herpesvirus (EHV).

  • THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

    WELCOME FROM THE EDITOR

    Its a fair bet Mickael Barzalona didnt read mycolumn in this magazine 12 months ago. For astart, he knows very little English, but had hetaken the time to peruse Owner & Breeder followingthe 2010 Derby he might have come across thefollowing observation about the victorious jockey,Ryan Moore.Moore is not a man who shows much emotion, in

    or out of the saddle, I commented after Workforcesbrilliant display. He refuses to indulge in whip-waving, finger-pointing or exuberant celebration whena big winner comes his way.Even if Monsieur Barzalona had seen those words,

    its unlikely he would havetaken much notice, judging byhis incredible Derby ride onPour Moi, when the teenagerdecided that winning the racewas so good he didnt want towait until it was over before hestarted celebrating.Watching the event live I

    thought he had misjudged thewining post in what could havebeen the mother of all sportingcock-ups. Yet up until the lastfew yards he appeared to haveproduced a ride of utterbrilliance aboard a horse placedstone last approaching the home straight. As it turned out, he secured victory by a head, later

    claiming that he knew he would win. So was itsupreme confidence in his own ability, and that of thehorse beneath him, that gained the day, luck, or a bitof both?If its the former and the fact that none other than

    Andre Fabre has seen fit to put his faith in the 19-year-old would suggest this is the case we could well bewitnessing the embryonic career of one of the finesttalents ever to throw his leg over a thoroughbred.However you view this years Derby-winning ride,

    its sure to be talked about for years to come. GeorgeSelwyns fabulous image on page 45 capturesBarzalona looking the wrong way as Colm

    ODonoghue asks eventual runner-up Treasure Beachfor maximum effort in the drive for the line. What would happen if Pour Moi met Frankel is

    anyones guess. Any meeting between the two wouldalmost certainly have to take place over ten furlongs,and while the latter is yet to race beyond a mile, JamesWilloughby, in his exclusive column for this magazine(page 23), feels a step up in trip is exactly what KhalidAbdullahs unbeaten colt needs.Tom Queally was widely criticised for his ride

    aboard Frankel in the St Jamess Palace Stakes butWilloughby, using his own analysis based on sectionaltiming and stride-pattern, suggests we should not be

    blaming the man on top for thenarrow winning margin, asmost did.If Frankels performance in

    victory was a let-down to some,So You Thinks second placebehind Rewilding in the PrinceOf Waless Stakes was a hugedisappointment in view of themassive hype surrounding him.He may still prove to be the

    superstar we have been led tobelieve he is but the proof ofthe pudding, in this instance, ison the racecourse and atpresent the imposing son of

    High Chaparral has to prove he can dominate ourracing scene as he did down under.So You Think still has time on his side to prove his

    star quality, however further defeats would weaken notonly his reputation but also the idea that Australianracing at the top level is superior to that in Britain andIreland, a view expressed by certain racing figures.Also in this issue, Rachel Hood gives her first

    interview since taking over the ROA Presidency (TheBig Interview, pages 34-37), Hughie Morrison, indouble-winning form at Royal Ascot, talks to Alan Leeabout his aristocratic background and decision toembark on a training career (pages 38-42) while EmmaBerry experiences the Grand National, Swedish style(pages 46-47).
