Recap, Pleasing results from the Riccarton meeting last Saturday with our four runners across the day. Lil Zena & Rose of Dublin continue to perform nicely and learn their craft with a 3rd & 4th respectively in the Listed 2yo Welcome Stakes, with both fillies looking for that extra distance which they will get at the next 2yo event over 1200m the Listed Berkley Stud Champagne Stakes. The ever consistent Miss Layla stepped up to 2000m for the first time this preparation and went a lovely race for 3rd placing and she has now gone for a well deserved rest. Quintabelle has added more black type to her credentials with a superb 3rd placing in the Listed Insurance Stakes under a great ride from Samantha Wynne.

Trials, Just the one runner at the Ashburton trials on Tuesday being our 2yo Ready to run purchase Those Ocean Eyes. A very good result on debut making solid ground on the leader up the straight to finish within a nose at the post. She has now headed out for an Autumn break and will prepare for the Spring. There are shares still available in this now proven filly so get in contact to secure your %.

Coming up, Back to Riccarton this Saturday with five horses to step out beginning in the first on the card with Ocean Breeze in the mdn 1400m, followed by Rani Belle also in a mdn 1400m. Both of these fillies are second up off the back of encouraging debut runs and Leah Hemi will do the riding. Onto race 5 with last start winner Annia Aurelia for the 65 1400m. A step up in grade and distance this week and look forward to watching her progress. We are lucky enough to have two runners for the Listed Warstep Stakes in Quintabelle who should relish the 2000m, and Tetbury bred for the distance searching for that ground.

All the very best of luck to all of our owners on what will be a fantastic days racing!

Quintabelle

Quintabelle

She loves the big roomy Riccarton straight to wind up in her run, and we are very much looking forward to getting this Embellish filly over the 2000m. Her stats are very good with 9 starts for 2 wins and has picked up black type on two occasions. She continues to grow and develop and we are very proud of what she has achieved.

All the best of luck to her connections!

Those Ocean Eyes

Our 2yo Ocean Park filly out of Black Mascara has shown us ability in her first outing this week. She has plenty of upside and is a such a strong well put together filly.
