The 2018/19 racing season has concluded in New Zealand and legendary stallion Bettor’s Delight’s emphatically claimed his eighth consecutive stallion title in the ‘shaky isles’. Bettor’s Delight has been the ultimate bred shaper in both hemisphere’s and his influence will run deep for years to come.

Sweet Lou is the leading first season sire in New Zealand and has finished 2nd on the 2yo sires list behind Bettor’s Delight. ‘The Great White Blaze’s’ impact has been immediate as a first season sire. Plenty of winners for our roster this past week, with Sweet Lou siring good winners in Mighty Looee at Auckland and Geraldton Wax was an impressive winner at Wagga Wagga. Did you know Sweet Lou’s 2yo dollar average in his debut Australian crop is $32,800!

American Ideal continues his stellar run of winners in Australia, with Ideal Star pacing 1.52.3 at Menangle, Mighty Flying Deal cruised passed $140,000 in earnings with victory at Gloucester Park, Regal Rock won at Newcastle as did Rain Man, Roosevelt scored at Hobart and Betamerica won at Shepparton.

Great to see Highview Tommy generate another winner as Matamua scorched to victory in her 3yo fillies Regional Breeders Challenge heat at Bathurst.
