Questions & Answers with Australia Wide


Australia Wide

After 2.5 years of breeding Negdog Racing got a chance to talk with “The King” Australia Wide, and ask a few questions about his recent purchase Dogs Hansen. Thanks to AW for taking the time.

After seeing 100’s of horses bred by Negdog Racing what finally made you decide to try one of his young grey colts in particular Dogs Hansen?

It’s the first Dog horse I’ve seen with works further than 2f 🙂

What farm will he be living at?

UxbON – Canada

Where do you plan on racing him next?

It looks like he’s built for distance so I’m not going to rush him. I might just spend the next 5 or 6 weeks trying him with Blinkers etc

Do you think he may be a future TC caliber horse?

After last week I’m not sure I’m the best judge of that 🙂

Dogs Hansen

Recently sold Dogs Hansen one of the top prospects from Negdog Racing’s 2012 crop of 2 year olds was clocked in @ WO doing a 59.38 over 5f on the dirt. Talking with Australia Wide he thinks Dogs Hansen could be bred for the distance and is going to take his time priming him up for his next race! He was the second fastest 2 yr old colt of the day and 8th fastest time at this distance for the year! The horse a very intersting demeaner about him and likes the spotlight!

To Breed & Sell or Race


Australia Wide

It is a tough decision for breeders across the virtual horse racing world. When a quality foal comes along such as Dogs Hansen, a tough decision must be made by the breeder to race their new foal or to sell to a top conditioner who is showing interest in the young colt. As of race time Dogs Hansen was sitting as the post time favorite for race #1 @ CRC today. A $25.000 maiden claimer Dogs Hansen was sure to be claimed as several owners had already informed me of there entry into the shake. Looking for a win on the racing side I had dropped him from a msw$20.000 @ TAM to the mdnClaimer$25.000 looking to scoop up a purse and get my foal claimed. There is one problem to that, who would end up with the foal? This is a very important key to the success of breeding. The more wins and money your foal earn on the trackside the more people will want to breed or buy the foal of certain parents. Being in the game for 2.5 years I started getting my best foal into top conditioners and my foal I bred started getting more wins and my studs & mares started picking up more foal earnings. Being more experienced as a geneticist and breeder than a racer, we made an executive decision to move to the breeding side more until we mastered the racing/training side. Learning more through different training methods and testing them out ourselves has increased work times and personal race results. However when the opportunity finally rose for one of my best looking horses to get in the hands of s all time best trainer Australia Wide with over $145,000.000 in career earnings. I had to jump on the opportunity and scratched Dogs Hansen and shipped him out to . Having zero adds tested and the possiblity in running in higher classed races with the digital dirts top conditoner was one I couldnt pass on. We are looking forward to see where “The King” ends up racing Dogs Hansen next and how far will he take him?! Will he be our first horse to run in the TC? Only time will tell!
