10 December 2012

Unfortunately only one will count! The 4yo gelding by Ustinov x Colmerino won the corresponding maiden race at Riccarton last Friday – before it was declared a 'no race' becuase of cones left out at the 1000m mark. Jack Romanov was a $2,500 purchase at the NZ Weanling Sale for a new client from Perth. Now he’s running over a trip he could prove a useful stayer.

Between the Beats wins second up at Sandown

Between The Beats

That’s win number four for the 5yo gelding. Best seen over middle distances, Between the Beats (Golan x Whistling Jazz) is now trained by Mike Moroney at Flemington. This is the horse that ran 8th in Jimmy Choux’s NZ Derby. I bought him for $105,000 at the Ready to Run sale, for a client who wanted a potential stayer.

Group I and II for Robbie!
14 October 2012

What a day for Robbie Heathcote on Saturday, first taking out the Schillaci Stakes with Buffering then the Toorak with Solzhenitsyn. He will now press on to the Waterford Crystal Mile before tackling the Emirates Mile on the final day of the Flemington carnival. After the race Robbie told journalists, "Solzhenitsyn came to me in great order from Richard Otto, who knew it had a lot of potential. The first day I started him he came from last to run fourth, and I said to the boys this is a horse who will be on the front pages of the papers someday. Paul is my primary bloodstock agent, most of the success I have had in my career can be attributed to the horses Paul buys." Thanks for the plug mate!

Cum Dividend on way to city class
29 August 2012

Cum Dividend (Show a Heart x Hello Crystal) continued on his winning way yesterday with another gritty performance at Seymour. The $14,000 yearling purchase, in the stable of Shaun Dwyer, has now won or been placed in five of his eight starts and looks likely to go through to city class.

Promising stayers find form
23 August 2012

Two promising staying prospects won in Australia on the weekend. Brilliant Dragon (Hidden Dragon x Lady Brilliant), trained by Robbie Heathcote, won by more than four lengths in his first start past 1600m. While Captain Stipo (King’s Chapel x Bella Veloce) won over a mile at his fourth start for Shaun Dwyer. Brilliant Dragon was a $42,500 yearling purchase. I paid $40,000 for the other horse at the Ready to Run sale.

Hidden Kisses great advertisement for QTIS
6 August 2012

Five-year old mare Hidden Kisses (Hidden Dragon x Kiss an Angel) continued on her winning way at Brisbane yesterday. Now the winner of six races and more the $360,000, she is a great advertisement for the Queensland bonus scheme (QTIS) which accounts for more than half of her prize money. I bought Hidden Kisses for $25,000 as a yearling. She will have her next run in a fortnight, at Doomben.

Better going paves way for form reversal

Trapiche (Sandtrap x Corniche) showed sharp improvement on better going to win the feature sprint at Whangarei on Saturday. Running out the race in 1.12 on a dead 4, he has now won or placed in over half his starts. Look for the gelding, a $25,000 purchase at the sales, to back up at Te Rapa this weekend.
