The Woodlands Stud stallions finished the calendar year in style with a feast of winners in both Australia and New Zealand.
On Auckland Cup day, our stallion roster sired 50% of the winners on the programme. Relentlessly juggernaut Bettors Delight had a quartet of winners, amongst them was Elle Mac who was a winner of the 3yo fillies Group 1 Sires stakes final, Jesse Duke was a very impressive debut 2yo winner also. The Woodlands bred and raised son of Bettor’s Delight sat in the chair and closed out the race in 26 and change.
American Ideal’s daughters American Empress and American Tart where very impressive winners as well, both claiming decisive wins on the feature day.
At Gloucester Park, Bettor’s Fire was an impressive winner of the Group 2 Village Kid sprint, he led a Woodlands Stallions trifecta in the $50,000 feature, at Ballarat, The Faithful was a winner of the Golden Mile, he led in a Woodlands bred and raised quinella with Can’t Refuse running second.
