Where do we start?
Some 11 winners and a host of minor placings, Including two at G1 level, for our stallions in Australasia over the past week.
Love You led the way with 4, Orlando Vici had 3, Quaker Jet 2 and Village Mystic 2.
+ VILLAGE MYSTIC (a son of Love You) – his only 2 Australian starters Amandine and Courmayeur each saluted for Yabby Dam Racing’s trainer Anton Golino in heats of the Need For Speed Princess 3yo fillies series to earn a berth on Friday night’s final at Melton.
+ ORLANDO VICI – 2 of his NZ-bred progeny Ollivici and Adelle took out heats of the Tornado Valley Trot to progress to a final at Melton on Friday night.
+ QUAKER JET (a son of Love You) – had a double at Winton in NZ with Expensive Crumpet and Velocity Jet.
+ LOVE YOU - G1-winning 4yo Parisian Artiste reinforced his potential with a slashing win at Menangle on Saturday – charging home from the back of the field at the top of the home straight. It is his first win at top level in open age and gives him 9 wins in 30 starts.
+ Stevie Gee (USED TO ME) and first-starter Mipersonaljet (QUAKER JET) filled the minor placings in the G1 Nutrien Equine Haras Des Trotteurs 2yo Mixed Sex Trot Final at Menangle – a series we were proud to sponsor.
