Update: Racing Scene Winners, Winners, Winners.
Whitney H wins first up at Maryborough in a heat of the VHRSC Snowball Series in impressive style on Thursday 17th December in 2.0.3 last half in 58.3. On to the final at Ballarat on the 26th December.
Union Ally (part owned by Brenda, Claire & Ashlee) wins in impressive style at Kilmore on Wednesday 16th December in 2.1.1 after a masterful drive by Grant Campbell.
Update Foals: – Finally the last of our foals has arrived a colt by Auckland Reactor out of the New Zealand mare Jewel Bromac a daughter of the very well performed Jillbo. That leaves us with six colts and one filly for the season.
My Little Black Dress – positive test to Rock N Roll Heaven.
Yorkshire Park wish everyone a very merry Xmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
News, News, News – December, 2015.
It is amazing how quickly the year gets away as we head towards X Mas and face up to the New Year.
On the foaling scene we have two new foals, both colts, one by Sportswriter out of Rock Me Gently born on the 1st December and the other by Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite born on the 14th December. That only leaves one to go with Jewell Bromac due to foal to Auckland Reactor any day now. So far the score is five colts and one filly, all doing well.
On the racing scene it is great to have Whitney H back as she makes her return at Maryborough on Thursday 17th December drawn ideally in barrier one. Of the back of a good trial at Kilmore recently we are hopeful that she can continue her form when last in work.
Social Fireball also makes her return to the track at Maryborough for Brooke Hanson and Gavin Lang drawn barrier one in Race One. Let’s hope the Yorkshire Park bred filly can make a good return to the track. The Courage Under Fire colt born this week is a full brother to Social Fireball.
Great to see some past Yorkshire Park bred horses doing well with Aitutaki winning at Echuca last week and My Aliyana finishing fifth in her return at Newcastle last week also.
Great to hear also that I Can Dream our two year old in NZ is still on track and progressing well. Trainer John Hay is happy with how she is going and hopefully she can continue to take the next step.
Really good news from Shane Tritton also that Watch The Dream has overcome her virus and is now back in work and doing well. The mail is that while she had a little time off she did add some kilos which wont do her any harm at all.
