Past Discussion

  1. Todman
    I am currently in discussions with Racing Queensland at the moment about this and hope to have an answer shortly. In the meantime however, there is no reason why breeders could not email me direct with details of the litter at the same time they register it with Racing Queensland, perhaps they might even like to send a photo of the pups. We could then review the litter in our weekly litter reviews.
