HDT Wrap Up | 8 August 2023

A big week for Love You progeny lifted the French stallion’s winning tally in Victoria this past 50 wins.

Last season he finished with a winning strike rate (to starters) of 18 per cent in Victoria.

With almost five months still to run this season, Love You is sitting on 22.5% in Australia’s premiers trotting state.

The highlight for the week for Love You came when the Blake Fitzpatrick-trained Valtino from NSW took out the Haras des Trotteurs Nutrien Equine Trotting Classic heat for 2yo colts/geldings at Kilmore on Thursday August 8.

It was the colt’s second win in seven career starts.

He will now headline $62,500 classic final at Bendigo on Friday, August 11.

Present and past HDT roster stallions will have a major presence in the four 3yo and 2yo finals for graduates of the 2021 and 2022 Nutrien Equine Standardbred Healing Sales.

3yo runners: Orlando Vici Fra 3, Used To Me Fra 2, En Solitaire Fra 1, Love You Fra 1, Quaker Jet Fra 1.

2yo runners: Volstead 4, Love You 2, Quaker Jet 1

The 3yo finals for fillies, and colts/geldings are each worth $125,000 - making them the richest 3yo trotting features in Australasia.
