Champion stallion Bettor’s Delight has once again made Australian harness history with his siring deeds. For the 2015/16 season he has broken his own record of money earnt by progeny in a season. His seasonal earnings thus far have been over $10.4 million which is a staggering performance. His nearest rival is some four million dollars in his wake. The champion progenitor remains the most influential stallion in recent times ‘down under’ and perhaps the greatest stallion of all time.
No shortage of winners for Bettor’s Delight this week past, including a treble at Auckland with Mo Casino, Aliante and Zach Maguire greeting the judge.
At Menangle his classy daughter Katy Perry took her career earnings to over $430,000 with a 1.53.4 victory and Dream Fulfilled was a Ballarat winner. Top class mare Maori Time took a career best record with her 1.54.2 trotting victory at Melton. The daughter of Pegasus Spur now has $260,000 in the bank.
Other good winners for Pegasus Spur included Scorched at Albion Park and It’s Not Dark Yet.
American Ideal is currently the leading top twenty sire in Australia on average dollars per starter. He has had another terrific season in Australia and breeders are certainly flocking to him as we build towards another breeding season. Among the winners for American Ideal this week where War Dan Apollo at Penrith and Ideal Warrior at Menangle. With the Australasian Breeders Crown semi-finals headed to Bendigo this week, we wish all participants the best of luck.
