Hillbilly Bear wins again for Jen!
6 July 2013

Hillbilly Bear (Thorn Park x Classic Vault) won a class 4 handicap at Kranji for good friend and client, Jenny Grieve, last night. It was the 4-year old's second win since transferring to Mark Walker's Singapore stable. The gelding has now won $92,000 - only $89,000 more than it did in New Zealand!

Cooldini proves exciting staying prospect
22 June 2013

Rangy gelding Cooldini (Bernadini x Eliza Dane) made it three in a row with a win over 2500m at Flemington on Saturday. The victory came on the back of a 12-length win at Sandown, which local journalists described as one of the largest winning margins seen there for some time. Bought as a weanling for $40,000 and sold for the same price a year later, this horse is now among the most improved staying 3-year olds in Melbourne. It has won 5 from 12 and $215,000 in stakes.

St Andrews gets the chocolates for new syndicate
7 February 2013
St Andrews2

St Andrews (Sandtrap x Nun's Chorus) won a class 1 1300m at the Sunshine Coast today. The 4yo gelding previously showed promise in winning for Richard Otto but we just thought this horse would be better off racing in Queensland. So we sent it to Robbie who has done a great job of finding new owners to join in the fun. Damian Browne said St Andrews travelled well in patches but was on and off the bit a few times which mostly comes down to inexperience. There's a class 3 1350m coming up at Doomben in two weeks - look out for the black and white polka dots!


Tough old campaigner wins again

Sam’s Town (Danehill Dancer x Let’s Split) won again at Eagle Farm last Saturday, over 2180m. Now a 7-year old, the gelding has won 6 and placed 15 times from 48 starts. I bought Sam's Town for $32,500 at the Magic Millions weanling sale.

Choice Bro wins first up as three year old
12 January 2013
Choice Bro

Choice Bro (Choisir x Ladidi) stormed home to win first up over 1200m at Awapuni today. It was a top effort by last year's Manawatu Sires Produce winner, which from all reports has had its share of problems since. The training connections made a good comment after the race, saying "if you don't ask, you don't get from colts". Perhaps they have plans to geld the horse.

Cum Dividend wins at first attempt in city
14 December 2012

Reliable gelding Cum Dividend (Show A Heart x Hello Crystal) made the perfect city debut with a brilliant win over 1200m at Moonee Valley. I bought this 4yo for clients of Shaun Dwyer at the Melbourne Sale for $14,000. He was a little immature as a yearling but now seems to be coming to hand nicely. If you’re wondering about the name, it actually means ‘when a buyer of a security is entitled to receive a dividend that has been declared, but not paid’.
