Just two weeks gone of the 2024 season and the influence of Love You Fra is already to the fore again.
He’s had five winners in his own right in the past week, headed by the Paddy Lee-trained Keayang Chucky in the Hamilton Trotters Cup on Sunday, January 14.
That gives him at 27% strike rate.
Then there have been winners for one of his sons, Quaker Jet Fra, on either side of the Tasman through super mare Im Ready Jet in The Derby Royale in The Derby Royale Free-For-All at Shepparton and Ready Set Jet in New Zealand.
