Update:

Whosashadylady breaks through for her first win at Young on Friday night 19th May,  in convincing fashion.  Well done Amanda and the team.

News, News, News

The month of May has continued on in the same vein on the racing scene for Yorkshire Park with Whosashadylady finishing 2nd in both of her last two starts at Bathurst.  This coming Sunday she ventures to Cowra in the Muddle Memorial over 1700 metres drawing barrier 5.  She has been very consistent in her four starts to date finishing 4th, 3rd ,2nd & 2nd again.  Lets hope that this Sunday she might find the line in 1st placing.

Our NZ yearling fillies Lutetia Midfrew & Rosa Parks have completed their first preparations and have now gone to the paddock for a six week spell.  Both handled being broken in quite well, very different types of fillies but each thrived on their first preparation under the guidance of John & Ineka at Ashburton.

Our Alta Christiano yearling gelding will finish his first preparation this week under the care of Mark Watson at Kyabram.  He has done really well and is a lovely pacer who enjoys his work and looks the part.  He is currently on the market and to date you would not be any more happier with what he has done.  If he is not sold we will look to syndicate him out and retain an interest in him ourselves.

On the breeding scene all our foals have been weaned and currently being handled as part of their education process.  All four will return to Yorkshire Park by the end of the month and continue with the educational process.  I am really pleased with all four but must admit I have taken a bit of a liking to the Angus Hall trotting filly.

Great to see Our Royal Lady heading to Victoria this coming Thursday night at Ballarat for the Vic Bred Platinum series following her fantastic debut win in the SA Sapling Stakes.  Talking to her owners she has done particularly well since her win and is expected to perform well while she is in Victoria.  Good luck to the owners and Alan Cronin the trainer with this filly.  Interestingly she was the first winner for new sire Lincoln Royal (Sir Lincoln in NZ) on either side of the Tasman something as breeders of the filly we are extremely proud off. 

A big congratulations to former Country Clubs CEO David Brick on his appointment to Queensland Racing recently.  David has done a terrific job with the Country Clubs and I’m sure we will miss his ever reliable assistance and support.  It is a great opportunity for him and his family and we wish him well and hope to see him back in the not to distant future.

 

That’s about all for now.

 

Good luck and good punting.

 

Yorkshire Park team.
