Sweet Lou’s career as a stallion continues to gather momentum in the Northern Hemisphere with his 2yo ‘blaze brigade’ casting a big shadow over the Pennsylvania sire’s stakes series. Both his son’s and daughters a quite a force in the freshman ranks. Sweet Lou is now the leading sire on the 2yo sires list and the leading first season sire. Amongst his outstanding performers are undefeated filly Warrawee Ubeaut and his son Love Me Some Lou is currently the fastest 2yo pacer this year in the USA! What a start for Sweet Lou!

‘Down Under’, Bettor’s Delight added another Group 1 to his CV when his daughter Emerald Stride won the time honoured Redwood Classic at Maryborough for the 2yo trotters, his siring deeds now no bounds. Other good winners for Bettor’s Delight included Max Delight at Launceston, Shoshone Brave at Shepparton, Our Millwood Maizie was an Albion Park winner and Adieu Renway got the chocolates at Leeton.

Can Australian breeders please note that American Ideal’s book is now full and closed for the upcoming season. Thank you to all breeders who continue to support our ‘gun sire’. On race track American Ideal was seen to advantage with good winners in Sweet As at Albion Park, Ideal Tyson scored at Gloucester Park, Tisu Spirit won at Launceston and Regal Rock was a Redcliffe winner.
