The Woodlands Stud bred and raised performer has raced at the elite level in recent years and is a deserved millionaire. Congratulations to all concerned with the diminutive pacer.

Plenty of winners for American Ideal on both sides of the ditch, among them where a double at Cambridge where Kaitlyn and Yankee Lincoln where winners, Illegal Immigrant made it back to wins with victory at Hobart, American Empress won at Auckland and Goodtime Slater won at Geelong.
