Thanks for taking the time to visit us at Blackiston Racing, the home of multiple Group 1 winning trainer Nigel Blackiston. We hope you enjoy browsing our website.
We have enjoyed a successful start to the 2016/17 season, with seven wins recorded at a healthy strike rate of 17% (to mid October).
Young horses like Getemhel and Sneakers have kicked off their careers with wins. Progressive middle distance types like Groovin' and Electric Aura have won their maidens and look set for more victories. Our old mate Ferro Nero has scored twice at metropolitan level, and exciting three-year-old colt Inside Agent won at stakes level in early October.
We look ahead to the remainder of the feature Spring racedays expecting bold performances from Exclusive Lass, Amarela, Desert Jeuney and more from Inside Agent. Meanwhile, we are loving the development of a lot of young two and three-year-olds ready to break through for their first victories, on the path to future success in higher grades.
In 2016 we were active at the sales in New Zealand and Australia, purchasing yearlings for our clients to buy into at cost. We also continue to privately source horses of all ages for our clients to buy or lease. So please subscribe to our mailing list and connect with us on social media to stay informed.
After eight placings in 14 starts, it has been clear that Electric Aura did not deserve her maiden tag. Yesterday at Moe, on their big Cup Day, this stylish daughter of Shocking won impressively over 1600m.
Ferro Nero, aka Basil, scored his fourth victory on Wednesday on Blue Sapphire Stakes Day at Caulfield.
Inside Agent stepped out at just his second race start to win the Listed Poseidon Stakes at Flemington on Sunday.
Very pleased to welcome the NZ-bred filly, La Vida Loca, to Flemington recently.
At Pakenham on Sunday, Groovin’ kicked strongly in the straight to score a comfortable victory in the three-year-old Maiden over 1600m.
It was a good day at out at the Melbourne Racing Club, Caulfield, today.
It is with great pride today that we announce the retirement of SUAVITO. What a ride it has been for connections, Nigel, and all of us at Blackiston Racing.
