Moonshine lady has gone south with Dansu & Lytafire to train with Richard Butler at Nowra. Her first 2 races in the south were not great but we are confident she is close to producing her 3rd win. Hoping for BIG things from Moonshine in the next 12 months.
Update: She raced 6th July @ Nowra 1100m and lead all the way to WIN by a massive 7 lengths. Next race was at Randwick on 20th July, She lead most of the way at her first Race at Randwick but was bumped on the home straight and lost her momentum.
Update September 2019 – After her 2nd Randwick race, Moonshine will no longer trained in NSW. We have brought her back up to Qld to be trained & raced closer to home…. Working on a WIN @ DOOMBIN in 2020
Lytafire … aKa JIMMY has gone down south to train and race south of Sydney. He has been training last 3 months with Richard Butler. First race was 1100m at Nowra NSW on 9th December 2018. Jimmy showed good speed to lead most of the way but lost it in the last 20 meters by a top Sydney horse that had sold at Auction in 2017 for $420 000 (The Runner).
2nd Race: Lytafire race 5 @ Canberra on 28th December. He showed good speed to get out of the barrier fast, went a bit wonky in the straight but still WON race the race. See race video.
3rd Race 1100m at Gosford, Lytafire lead most of the way but was pushed onto the rain in the last 100m and lost momentum. He showed good pace with the top speed of 74km. BIG things to come from Lytafire…
Update September 2019 : Lytafire has a leg injury from running on hard tracks in NSW. He is now retired from racing.
Vsiona Playboy has stepped up to 1800m & had a HUGE win at the Sunshine coast in November. The track record @ Sunshine Coast 1800m is 1.48.86, Vsiona Playboy ran 1.49.94. see race video. Vsiona Playboy will have 1 or 2 more races in December & January before a well earned break.
Update July 2019 : Vsiona Playboy has done a tendon in his front leg, To recover he would need 12 months in the paddock. We have decided to retire him from racing and will look for a good home for him to live his life .
Dansu … Dansu has had 3 races with his NEW trainer Richard Butler. He seems to be struggling with the quality of horses in NSW. If he dosent produce a decent result in the next few races, we will consider retiring him.
Update September 2019 : Richard Buttler couldn’t get a win from Dansu so we have brought her back to Qld to race/ She has been leased to a local trainer on the Sunshine coast.

Dansu the horse
Dansu WON is maiden race @ Ipswich in July 2016.
Born 2015 … is growing well and should be ready to race in 2018. His race name has been registered as Moonshine Lady
Moonshine is a special breed of horse and has come from American stallion (The Factor). The FACTOR is the fastest shuttle stallion standing in Australia
Tui was also breed from the American stallion (The Factor) .
He will be sold at the Magic Millions auction in 2019
Leading bloodstock agent John Moynihan described The Factor as a rocket ship, he is the fastest horse we’ve ever had. Physically he’s a 15 out of 10. He really does have the physical presence to match his speed… Having looked at the champion race horses and stallions in Australia, his physical appearance and record-breaking speed are tailor-made for the Australian market.”
Buakaw has WON $200 000 as a race horse and has now earned his retirement from racing and is enjoying life as a show jumper.

Western Australia – Nothing less than AMAZING
It is not in spite of daunting circumstances that we grow but because of them
During my 12 years in Thailand I was working nearly 24 / 7 on the gym web site making improvements and updates. I was up at 4 – 5am most mornings to respond to e-mails, staying up till 3am after fight night’s to ensure fight video’s were online before I went to bed. It was an experience that helped developed my internet skills far beyond my expectations.
Since leaving Thailand in 2011… I have had very little desire to even turn on my computer. Other than updating photo’s to facebook, I have had NO motivation to work on any of my web site’s. Last year I was even considering selling some of my web site’s because of the lack of inspiration I had to develop them.
But shitty situations can inspire awesome solutions and I have come to realize that the disorienting storms of life are not just about survival but of learning to thrive when times are tough. It is not in spite of daunting circumstances that we grow but because of them.
It’s now 2014 … The year of the horse …. I now find my self inspired to move forward and work towards developing my skills and improving on my craft.
My first month back online has been a but rusty and remembering my way around a web site has been a little slow but I am once again back online, Back on the road less traveled, the road to new adventures …. HAPPY days .
I stepped out of my comfort zone and walked the path unknown
A journey of hope & dreams I’m on the road that is less traveled
Incognito is opportunity it looks a lot like hard work
That’s where my dreams become reality … If I choose to take that chance.
