Important Geegeez Geegee Update: Get Your Share NOW!

The wheels have been lubricated, dear reader, and the Geegeez Partnership is in motion. I've spoken with Julia this morning, and we've agreed that it's better to go to the sales and see what we can achieve there. I've looked at some of the Sales catalogue and picked about 15 horses out that I think would be excellent for us.

Now, we might not get any of these are they're all rated 70+ and, to be honest, £10,000 is pretty cheap for a horse of that calibre. However, our sneaky plan B is to find a horse that  has untapped potential, either for an all weather campaign, or a hurdling campaign, or both. And we may have found just the horse.

I obviously can't say too much now, but there will be more information as soon as I have it.

I've also been in touch with Weatherbys this morning and the British Horseracing Authority (there's a fair amount of set up faff involved in creating a racing partnership!).

Basically, they're sending me the forms to open a Weatherbys account, from where all of our partnership business will be transacted, and also the registration forms for the partnership, which will be called geegeez.co.uk

So, the next step is for me to complete those forms, which will happen by Wednesday (postman permitting), and to fund the account in order that we can purchase a horse.

The July sales are as soon as next week, so we really need to move pretty fast on this. They run from next Tuesday 7th to Thursday 9th.

I've set up the following link for you to join up:

I'm currently planning with Julia to have a stable day in August, possibly on Saturday 15th, which would enable us all to go racing in the afternoon. Obviously, I'll share more info on this in due course.

    Just wondered whether you were aiming to buy a 2 or 3 year old colt or filly etc? Not that it would really matter, but just interested to know.

    Thanks

      Hi Lee

      We’ll be looking to buy a horse aged 5 or younger, ideally a boy, possibly… erm… de-coupled (i.e. a gelding). What I didn’t mention is that this is the ‘Horses in Training’ sale at Newmarket, which means that the horses already have some known form.

      This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good as you’re guaranteed a certain level of fitness and ability, meaning we can race the animal pretty much straightaway. Bad, because it means everybody knows the ability and therefore price of the horses.

      In our case, Julia does have some ‘moles’ in some of the bigger Newmarket yards, so the horses they send to the sales we would know a little more about than most.

      Hope that clarifies,
      Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Is it possible to pay for the share by cheque as I am useless when it comes to paypal.

    Love the idea.

    Regards Steve

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Steve

      No cheques, I’m afraid. Bank transfer is fine. Email me and I’ll send you my business account details.

      Best,
      Matt

      Thanks! You’re in. Please bear with me, as I’m personally replying to emails, and there’s a fair few of them!

      Will get to you shortly (hopefully before you read this!) 🙂

      Matt

      p.s. Of course, for those who are too late, I’ll refund them directly.

    I do not understand you draw profile selection, Battimoore at Musselburgh, While low draw horses can win, surely it is better to have a high draw over 7 furlongs at this track.

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Stuart

      This is from the Draw Profiles manual:

      MUSSELBURGH 7f
      7f Summary: Low-ish (3-6) again has an edge here, with the tight turn after a
      furlong disadvantaging high drawn horses.
      Analysis by Low Drawn Horses
      Stall Wins-Runs Expected +/- (£)
      1 9 – 76 7.77 -12.37
      2 9 – 79 7.97 -18.00
      3 13 – 79 7.98 35.75
      4 8 – 78 7.98 -24.75
      5 11 – 69 7.07 27.83
      6 8 – 76 7.31 3.00

      7 9 – 76 7.16 -20.50
      8 5 – 69 6.32 -33.67
      9 3 – 59 5.05 -24.25
      10 7 – 51 4.22 10.75
      11 3 – 43 3.37 -26.50
      12 4 – 38 2.90 7.75
      13 0 – 24 1.78 -24.00
      14 2 – 19 1.36 5.25

      Battimoore was drawn 4, and was beaten by the funereal pace and the jockey’s insistence in holding the horse up in last, meaning he had to pass all the rivals in a sprint finish.

      Hope that clarifies,
      Matt

      Correct Dermot – I nearly put up Ask Jenny each way at Brighton (2.30) but she ran a shocker here last time, so may not handle the track. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me to see her run well.

      Matt

  8. John S says:

    Hi Matt,
    Did you blog that you are claiming “naming” rights over our purchase or would you be open to suggestions?
    Regards,
    John S

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi John

      We are planning to buy a horse in training, which means it will already be named. The ownership will be in the name of geegeez.co.uk

      Best,
      Matt
