HDT Weekly Wrap | 16 April 2024

Another sale season is complete, finishing with the Melbourne Nutrien Equine Yearling Sale on Sunday, April 14.

The first crop of Classic Connection Fra led the way:

  • Highest-priced trotting filly: out of Onestar LB Ita (bred by Yabby Dam Farms) - $75,000. She was also in the top 10 prices for the sale.

  • Highest priced trotting colt: out of Saint Etienne (bred by Yabby Dam Farms) - $60,000

We look forward to seeing the first Classic Connections on the track next season.

If you want proof of the quality of Orlando Vici Fra, just look at the past week.

Of champion Just Believe led the way in New Zealand, but Ollivici NZ was back to his winning best in the City Of Melton Free-For-All at Melton on Saturday, April 13, and the up-and-coming Royal Dan saluting at Menangle.

We were so proud of our ties to The $600,000 NZ Trot at Cambridge on Friday, April 12.

1st Just Believe - by roster stallion Orlando Vici Fra

2nd Callmethebreeze Fra - imported from Europe and raced by HDT

3rd Queen Elida NZ -  by roster stallion Love You Fra

What a season Used To Me Fra is having.

He sits equal third on the Australian trotting sire's premiership list for the most winners in 2024.

He has had 11 individual winners from just 21 starters - sitting only behind super sires Majestic Son Ca, Love You Fra, and Father Patrick US.

They include Familiar Tricks, which won the NSW 4yo Foundation Final at just his fourth race start.
