Dear Horse Racing Lover,

Febuary and early March have been quite hectic scheduled with New Zealand Yearling Sales where I purchased a Pentire-Wella Colt which you can see pictured above. For more information about the colt please click here

If you ever had dreams of owning a Melbourne Cup winner this colt has the pedigree and quality to be aimed for the classic staying events.He has recently arrived from New Zealand and has settled-in well. Watching him move around the paddock confirms my opinion of him in the sale ring. There has been quite some interest in him and some shares are still available.

We then had a trip to Hong Kong to celebrate Ben Wong’s daughter’s (Eva) wedding –where we all had a great time. I was able to hand Ben the winning tape on Fince the Tronics’s brilliant, allthe- way 4 length win on Mornington Cup Day.

Fince the Tronics was named after a clothing brand that Ben’s son, Vincent owned. I mentioned to Ben, after his horse was beaten at Sha Tin races, we would have some winners for him on our return. Well we just missed with Electronic Million at Sandown – getting pipped right on the line and then Envisioning came up with another 2nd but he is going extra well for his jumping career.

We made it back into Australia –went straight to the William Inglis Yearling Sales – where Tony had purchased a lovely scopey filly by the New Danehill sire in Tiger Hill, for a group of stable clients.

Fayrouz (who is part-owned by my wife, Deb) had her Elvstroem filly go through the Sale and purchased for $160,000 by rianMayfield- Smith. She was a great type and Phillip Campbell from Blue Gum Farm thought she would have made the $200,000 mark. She has a very nice Elvstroem colt on her which we may syndicate next year and she is in foal to Elvstroem.


Spectrum Blitz’s win at Cranbourne was sensational. At the 1,000m mark I turned to Helen and said he had no hope as he was tailing the field. When Wayne Davis let him loose he wipped around the field to hit the front and then held off all challengers and the showcase field was very strong. He has taken time to mature but he looks a good stayer for the future.

North Queen won very well at Bendigo to score her first win. She jumped well then comped on the leader and then sprinted away for a strong win. She is another home breed and her younger half sister, Hemmi Hussy, also shows great potential with two seconds.
