PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sales 3yo Trot Final

The Williamson boys sure know how to drive a trotter and Brad drove a strong race not handing up to Mark Purdon on Cheerful. Get Lucky turned for home and never looked like getting beaten, and wow could I hear the Southlanders cheering for this one! Trainer Alister Black is having his best season of his career and its not looking like stopping anytime soon. Also, the Thomson’s who own Get Lucky are also having a dream season as both him and Vintage Cheddar who they bred are on fire. I had a good talk to them after the race about Get Lucky and they really had a good eye on him at the sales. Even though he was by a new sire, this didn’t put them off and what a decision this was, they will have a lot of fun with this guy going forward.

 

PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sale 2yo Fillies Final

Amazing Dream topped off an amazing season’s racing for the PGG Wrightson Yearling Sales Series. In a 1.54-mile rate, Amazing Dream showed her class to run away by 3 ½ lengths over a solid field of fillies. This is another great purchase by Jean Feiss who made the trip over from Australia to watch this filly. I am sure they will have fun going towards the harness jewels and this race today would have her going close to winning that so best of luck going forwards to that.
