It has been a period of rebuilding in recent months, with the majority of our horses unraced or lightly raced two and three-year-olds. With this team of young horses complementing proven older stars Suavito, Exclusive Lass and Desert Jeuney and others, we look forward to more success as they mature this season.
We have been 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.
In this month’s bulletin, I talk about the new stable, a new senior appointment in the team, and some recent results.
Winston Legacy, our tall, scopey son of Rip Van Winkle, is still a work in progress and doing what he can in his races. Let’s say he is “winging it” a little, and has a great deal to learn.
Today Getemhel stepped out for her three-year-old season debut at Geelong, in a field that looked to have quite a bit of depth. It was hard to be super confident, but we knew she had talent and hoped she would put it all together in the race.
With first-up form at Caufield over 1400m and in Group 1 races, there was always a little pressure on Suavito to perform on Saturday in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes.
Both Choice and Tiny’s Legacy going Suavito at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday.
Over the past two weeks, it has become clear that Suavito is fit and in fine condition following two jump outs at Flemington, and ready for a tilt at the Lawrence Stakes this Saturday.
