What a week for HDT Stallions!

A big week for Love You in New Zealand.

Highgrove led the way by taking out the G1 $100,000 Northern Trotting Derby, 2700m, at Alexandra Park in Auckland on Friday night.

Trained by Robert and Jenna Dunn, Highgrove took his record to 10 wins in 17 starts for $211,000.

Four of those victories have been this season.

In addition, the champion French sire had a winning double at Riverton on Thursday.

Nubliah Chamay tasted success for the first time and Tony Mac had his second victory in five starts.

Love You also had a double at Menangle on Tuesday, May 24.

For Tough Love, it was her 10th career win, fifth of the season and fourth in a foundation heat.

Love You continues to lead the Australian 3yo trotting sires standings for individual winners (8) and most wins (15) this season.

Used To Me is now a clear third for the most 3yo winners this season nationwide with five.

On the all-age trotting standings, Love You is second in each category with 23 winners of 38 races.

Used To Me has worked his way into the top 10 with eight winners of 15 races after two winners in the past week.

Queen Of Quebec had her first career win and Used To Be A Maid completed a hattrick of wins at Ballarat.

And big news from Sweden where son of Timoko Fra - Etonnant - has taken out the world famous Elitlopp winner.
