Thursday 18th August 2022


We had a big day at the Ashburton trials on Tuesday with 11 runners all preparing for the Spring. Bolshoi Star flew her 800m heat quite nicely, Time Test/Royal Excess gelding impressed in his first outing, War Decree/Five Diamonds filly showed professionalism in her debut trial, Time Test/Ima Lady filly produced an exciting run to the line and La Frox was there for a good hit out on the grass. Iffididit will take plenty away from the day and Ugo didn’t find the mark we had set. Elizabeth Rose had a nice hit out over 1000m, as did Kudos De Sothys and Stan With Me.

So plenty to look forward to with that first group stepping out and the next lot of trials for us are early Septemeber. Nothing racing for us this week so can kick back a little and be happy with how the team is coming up.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Time Test. Royal Excess

Our stunning Time Test gelding out of Exceed and Excel mare Royal Excess pictured here as a yearling. He’s had a couple of set backs but made the wait worth it with an encouraging debut trial win earlier in the week. We are very much looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for him. Many thanks to Little Avondale Stud for giving us the opportunity to produce this horse.
