Bettors Delight and Pegasus Spur’s progeny have certainly stamped themselves during the Inter Dominion being held in Victoria. With the final on the horizon at Melton, both sires will be represented by a number of starters in both finals for pacers and the trotters. Champion sire Bettor’s Delight is represented by six of his sons, who won a total of six of the nine heats contested. Spankem was a dual heat winner along with Pat’s Delight, Galactic Star, Tiger Tara and Wrappers Delight, the other starter in the final is the Woodlands bred and raised Can’t Refuse.
Pegasus Spur has three of his progenies in the final for trotters. Top flight trotter Speeding Spur, a multiple heat winner leads the charge with tough stayer Monty Python joining him, along with $300,000 earner Wilma’s Mate. Good luck to all in these showcase events.
American Ideal was a rich source of winners this past week in Australia. Out west, he continues to shine, with Saying Grace and Runrunjimmydunn both winning at Gloucester Park, at Bunbury he sired a treble when Muffins, Sammy’s Ideal and Prada’s Ideal Dharling got the chocolates and top-flight juveniles Franco Edward and Bletchley Park returned as three-year old’s with victory.
