Dave Haywood highly thought of in thoroughbred racing

Dave Haywood, who operated the thoroughbred breeding stud farm, Phuttocks End, died suddenly this week.

Haywood was a shearing contractor before setting up Phuttocks End at Otautau 16 years ago. Justice Prevails, Natural Destiny and Monza were stallions to stand at the stud.

Justice Prevails, the only one of the trio still at the property, is 26 and no longer serving mares.

Breeders used Haywood's facilities and services to foal mares. For the past 17 years, the horseman travelled north to help Curraghmore at the annual Karaka yearling sales.

Curraghmore, a commercial breeding operation, specialises in preparing yearlings for sale, weaning foals and foaling mares.

One of Haywood roles at Karaka was to lead Curraghmore's yearlings into the sale ring.

Curraghmore's owner, Gordon Cunningham, of Te Awamutu, will be attending Haywood's funeral in Invercargill on Sunday.

"Dave was a lovely person, very loyal, a good friend and gave us [Curraghmore] great support," Cunningham said.

Robyn Parkes has worked at Phuttocks End for 13 years.

"Dave was outstanding and intelligent . . . an all-round top guy," she said.

Birchwood owner-trainer-breeder Stephen Blair-Edie said Haywood had an affinity with Justice Prevails, nicknamed JP.

"He loved that horse, thought the world of him."

Haywood, nicknamed Fire, was chuffed when Blair-Edie named a horse after him. The horse, Fairfax Fire, had a win and a few placings before a breathing problem ended its career.

"Dave was as solid as a rock," Blair-Edie said.

"He was the most honest guy I've ever had anything to do with . . . we're in shock [at his death]."

Berkley Stud co-owner Edwina Morris, of Christchurch, also spoke highly of Haywood.

"I've known him for years, he's always been a real worker and super guy," she said.

"He foaled a lot of mares for our clients."

Two mares owned by Gallop South chairman Don Nicolson are close to foaling at Phuttocks End.

"Dave was held in high regard. It's very sad and he died far too young," Nicolson said. - Stuff
