The first weekend in July in Australia saw a host of feature races contested on both sides of the continent and both American Ideal and Bettor’s Delight had a major impact securing no fewer than four group one victories between them.

The action started at Gloucester Park when 2yo The Real Ideal lead throughout to score in the $100,000 WA bred 2yo colts & geldings final. The son of American Ideal, has created a big impression in only a handful of starts.

Later on the same card, star filly Dodolicious won the $100,000 3yo fillies WA Bred final. Continuing on with her amazing season, the daughter of Bettor’s Delight, may just be the best filly in Australia. Her career earnings have now gone passed over $400,000.

At Melton star 4yo Ideal For Real showed he is Victoria’s best 4yo with a first over crush win in the $115,000 Vicbred 4yo final for colts & geldings. Pacing a closing half in 55.9, the son of American Ideal has now banked $275,000 in stakes and will be nominal favourite for the Breeders Crown in August.

Bettor’s Delight has produced another star daughter in Delight Me. In the 4yo, $115,000 Vicbred final for mares, she produced an amazing victory after being wide the majority of the race. This was career win number ten from only twelve starts and she has bankrolled over $165,000 in stakes. Congratulations to all people involved with these outstanding performers who tasted group one success.
