The story of the week was undoubtedly Love You’s first pacing winner in Australia.
The champion French trotting sire had achieved the feat in New Zealand with the dual-gaited Outamyway - a winner as a trotter and pacer.
5yo gelding Parisian Band provided the Australian first at Shepparton on Friday, June 16.
He was bred out of race-winning trotting mare Le Chabanais (Ganymede) and started his career as a trotter.
Parisian Band had six starts as a trotter and the win came at his third outing s a pacer.
To add to the uniqueness of the night, Love You produced two winners with Kings Guard setting up the trotting/pacing double.
Iron Love continued Love You’s run with a first-up win at Charlton on Monday.
