Sweet Lou’s impact in Australia and New Zealand has been immediate and he’s no one hit wonder. He clearly has the two best juvenile filly pacers on both sides of the ditch so far. In Western Australia, Double Expresso made it five wins on the bounce with an effortless win at Gloucester Park, she has a seriously big motor!
At Addington, Sweet On Me remains undefeated in four starts following her NZ Sires Stakes heat win. She is clearly the standout amongst her peers in the Shaky Isles. At Launceston, classy 2yo Kohanah was a winner of the Golden Slipper, a key feature for the juveniles in the ‘Apple Isle’. The son of Sweet Lou was bred by Barrie Rattray, who has supported Sweet Lou since he starting shuttling ‘down under’! Sweet Lou is currently the leading 2yo sire on dollar average in Australia and he is currently second on the NZ 2yo sires table behind Bettor’s Delight. What a start he has made!
American Ideal’s love affair with Gloucester Park continued this Friday past when he sired a double, with Mighty Flying Deal and Ideal One greeting the judge, at Launceston his son Illegal Immigrant was an impressive Easter Cup heat winner and at Melton Ideal Some Magic was a winner.
Great week in Australia for Pegasus Spur with Monty Python taking his career earnings past $250,000 with victory at Melton.
