Which stallion won more prizemoney than any other in 2017? Bloodlines' immediate thought was Coolmore sensation Galileo, who chalked up his ninth stallions' premiership in Europe. He had 113 winners, including 47 black type races, and I thought it would be a cakewalk for the son of Sadler's Wells to lead prizemoney winners. However, despite worldwide prize winnings of $US27,787,308 ($35,488,000), the best Galileo could do was fifth.
Arrowfield Stud is revelling in the success of its three renowned stallions in the 2017 calendar year. The progeny of Redoute's Choice and his two sons, Snitzel and Not A Single Doubt, will once again supply the stars in the consignment of 58 yearlings Arrowfield is selling at the Magic Millions Sales beginning on January 10.
New Zealand breeders take the Ready To Run spotlight with a cracking selection of two-year-olds for the two-day sale next Tuesday and Wednesday at Karaka. The yearling sales in 2017 have proved highly successful but there were a larger-than-usual number of pass-ins at the Ready To Run sales in Melbourne and on the Gold Coast. This left some trainers down on numbers and they will be on the lookout for future stars next week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
