John Got It Right AIRPORT WEST breeder, John McNamara has a beautifully bred litter of eleven pups on the list this week, by the well bred sire, Hostile (April 2012 Collision x Restless Style).

It has long been my opinion that he has been under-rated as a sire, and looking at his success in Ireland/UK, it could be that Australian breeders have underestimated him. His pedigree certainly stands up well, and his ability on the track was unquestionable. Looking at his sons at stud, a number of them have been under-rated here as well, particularly Dee Winter, Radley Bale and Take The Kitty who have all produced winners from their limited opportunities. If you are thinking of breeding, remember him. - 10-
