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. We are loving the development of a lot of your two and three-year-olds on the path to future success.
We are particularly excited to get Inside Agent into the Australian Guineas on Saturday 4 March. He is still learning and improving. We think he can be competitive in the Guineas, but certainly believe he is an exciting horse for next season.
Four yearlings were purchased at the NZ Bloodstock Karaka Yearling sale, and two at the Melbourne Inglis Premier sale, mostly for clients who participated in the process with us. We do have shares for sale in one colt and one filly. So head over to our Racehorse Ownership page for more details.
On the first day of the Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne, and very early in the sale, a filly by five-time Group 1 winner OCEAN PARK was offered as lot 12. When she became available for purchase at just $40,000 (no GST), Nigel simply had to have her.
This week at the Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne, we purchased a colt by the brilliant racehorse and exciting young sire, EXCELEBRATION.
Into our stable this week, we welcome the brother to the highly talented Group-winning filly, SHEES FLAWLESS.
After a week-long reconnaissance mission in November, and seven days at the New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling sale last week, we are proud to be coming home with four really nice yearlings.
There was a lot of cheering in Geelong, Melbourne and New Zealand when the stable scored a race-to-race double with Big Pat’s Pontiac and Sorenata at Geelong on Sunday.
Due to personal travel, Nigel will be bypassing the Magic Millions Gold Coast sale this year and is first focusing on the New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sales series in late January.
Since her maiden victory at Moe in October, Electric Aura put in three fair efforts. But ridden quieter at Sale, she stormed home for a comfortable second victory.
From 1st February 2017, the minimum prizemoney for all two-year-old, three-year-old and open handicaps at Saturday metropolitan meetings will increase to $100,000.
Really quite pleased to hear about Racing Victoria’s Grand Handicap Series initiative in 2017.
