News Update May 2024

May produced a further two winners for Yorkshire Park bred horses with Birkirkara making it three in a row with a comprehensive 16 metre win at Albion Park in a very slick 1.53.1.  The Sweet Lou colt looks to have a lot of potential and has been very impressive in the care of Jack Butler.  An old favourite of ours Go Home Jo saluted again at Narrogin in WA with a come from behind 7.6 metre win in 1.59.0 making it win number seven and total stakes of just over $73,000.  By Roll With Joe the mare was one of the original horses sold by Yorkshire Park.  Nevs Dream, Classy Countess and Our Miki Diva continue to perform well. One of our favourites Jets Art has been retired following the diagnosis of a leaking valve in the heart which explains the slightly below par performances of recent times.  Jets Art raced 58 times for 5 wins and twenty-six placings, a best time of 1.57.4 and just under $54,000 in prizemoney.  The big fella has been a fantastic horse to the syndicate who raced him, and it was a pleasure to be part of it.  Enjoy your retirement big fella. Brightly Blaze has headed to the breakers and by all reports is doing well.  The filly by Vincent is a lovely type and is a half to multiple winners in Crazy Shippo, Telemachus & King Tintin. Good reports to date for our part owned 2 YO filly by Vincent out of Nieshars Jet and it won’t be far away before we see her at the trials.  Speaking of the trials, Yorkshire Park have a small interest in a 2YO filly by Soho Tribecca out of Oneminutetodream who qualified at Stawell last week under the care of Kerryn Manning.  Keep an eye out for her over the next week or so. A new addition to the Yorkshire Park team is a weanling filly by Downbytheseaside out of Fancy Girl purchased at the NZB standardbred weanling sales in Auckland.  The filly will stay in New Zealand for the time being under the care of Kimberley Blackmore at Pukekohe. Our mares continue to do well as we enter the winter months the feeding program steps up.  Our weanlings are all doing well, and we look forward to seeing them at the sales next year. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update April 2024

What a month or so it has been for Yorkshire Park owned horses with Our Miki Diva (Hobart) and Classy Countess (Hobart) winning in stylish fashion while Yorkshire Park bred horses also contributed to the winning circle with Maestro delivering two wins at Ballarat & Bendigo and Birkirkara winning two on the trot at Albion Park to remain undefeated.  The 3YO colt by Sweet Lou out of Watch the Dream has been very impressive in his two wins to date winning in 1.58.1 & 1.55.1 very comfortably. Fantastic to see the Yorkshire Park bred trotter La Volonte finish second beaten a half head at Maryborough last week finally trotting all the way.  La Volonte is a half-brother to Maestro and just needs to trot to be in the winner’s circle shortly.  Go Home Jo & Nev’s Dream both continue to perform well, and a win is just around the corner for both these mares. Brightly Blaze a yearling filly Vincent out of Our Narissa Franco will be heading off to be broken in shortly.  The filly is a half-sister to Crazy Shippo, Telemachus and King Tintin who have won 32 races between them. She will remain in the ownership of Yorkshire Park.  The Yorkshire Park part owned 2YO filly yet to be named by Vincent out of Neishars Jet is progressing well under the care of Graham Lyon.  Really looking forward to this filly gracing the racetrack in the near future. Late March I was appointed by the Minister for Racing to the Harness Racing Victoria Board after being concerned as to where harness racing in Victoria was heading.  I’m looking forward to the challenge but understand the industry in Victoria is in a very difficult financial position.   No doubt a clear strategy to ensure a sound financial approach, providing a future for the participants at all levels and providing a pathway for a return to all will be the focus from my perspective. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update March 2024

Another good month or so on the racetrack with the Yorkshire Park owned Classy Countess saluting at Launceston on the 18 February in 2.1.1 driven by Jacob Duggan.  Really pleased to see Tess win another one as she has been pretty close in recent times.  One of the original horses we sold Go Home Jo won at Bunbury on Friday 15 March in her best career winning time of 1.56.6 coming of the back of some good performances in recent times.  It was fantastic to see the mare back in the winner’s circle after returning from injury following a nearly three-year layoff.  Our Miki Diva continues in great form having run second in her past two starts since winning at Carrick in late January.  She has been finishing off he races well and hopefully there is another win around the corner for the Yorkshire Park owned five-year-old.  That Maj Ya Look, Nevs Dream and Jets Art all part owned by Yorkshire Park will be running over the next few weeks. Don’t forget the Nutrien Yearling sales in Melbourne kick off on the 14 April with a fantastic book of yearlings on offer.  Plenty on offer for all range of buyers and I suggest you get down there on the Friday 12th to inspect what will be a great batch of young horses both pacers and trotters. On the breeding scene we are starting to get our mares back to the farm from the respective studs and we will also see the return of the weanlings as well.  All positive to date with the Sweet Lou filly out of Masterkova following her little mishap and I can report she has had the screw taken out of her knee and all looks good. Yorkshire Park will be offering a couple of our brood mares this year for sale with Watch the Dream (empty) and Our Narissa Franco in foal to Poster Boy both going on the market.  Watch The Dream’s foals have averaged $28K at the past yearling sales and is superbly bred.  Our Narissa Franco has had three foals to the races and between them have won 33 races.  Reach out if you have any interest in either of these two mares. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update February 2024

The months of January and early February produced three winners for Yorkshire Park owned or bred horses with the standout performance being our own Our Miki Diva who saluted at Carrick on Australia Day with a strong win over 2150 metres handled very well by her driver Jacob Duggan.  The win is number three for the daughter of Always B Miki in 2.03.0 winning by 3.9 metres in comfortable fashion. Other winners bred by Yorkshire Park for the month were Good Word That at Newcastle and Azterian who chalked up win number ten for his career at Gloucester Park in WA. Yorkshire Park have a number of racehorses returning from a spell with Nev’s Dream and Jets Art on the path for another campaign.  Both our part owned two-year-old fillies, American Ideal x Vegas Diamond in the care of Nathan Jack and Soho Tribecca x Oneminutetodream in the care of Kerryn Manning & Grant Campbell are progressing well.  We also hope to see our Vincent x Neishars Jet filly back at the Graham Lyon stables shortly. That Maj Ya Look recently purchased from NZ has been fully syndicated and we look forward to seeing her at the track in the next month or so. On the breeding scene we can confirm that our mares Masterkova positive to Captain Crunch, Carrera Mystic a positive to Peeble Beach, Magical a positive to King of the North, She Will Rock a positive to Vincent and Our Narissa Franco a positive to Poster Boy.  Unfortunately Watch the Dream missed this year.  Great to see the kindred bodies of harness racing in Victoria band together to meet with the Minister of racing about the current state of harness racing both financially and from an administrative perspective.  Change is desperately required for the future of our sport and the lives and future of our brilliant group of young professionals coming through the system.  The sport has been in a terrible state in recent years a nothing more than change at the top will start the process of rebuilding the industry.  Let’s hope the Minister sees the challenges ahead and ensures change with the governing body. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update January 2024

We hope everyone had a great Xmas with family and friends and welcomed in 2024 in the best way with lots of celebrations and maybe the odd new year’s resolution. On the racing scene Yorkshire Park has been able to secure the NZ 3YO filly That Maj Ya Look a winner at Manawatu NZ in November from only two race starts.  The Art Major out of There’s A Dancer (Falcon Seelster) filly has arrived safely in Australia and is currently in work with Graham Lyon at Kyabram.  The filly is being syndicated and we are definitely looking forward to her progression in the coming months.   Our Miki Diva has headed to Tasmania to join the Adrian Duggan stable and performed well in her second appearance with a second placing at Hobart on Sunday.  Classy Countess has been consistent with her form combining three placings before having no luck in her last start.  Unfortunately, she was due to race Sunday night at Hobart, but a virus resulted in her scratching from that event. Yorkshire Park have a number of racehorses returning from a spell with Nev’s Dream and Jets Art on the path for another campaign.  Both our part owned two-year-old fillies, American Ideal x Vegas Diamond in the care of Nathan Jack and Soho Tribecca x Oneminutetodream in the care of Kerryn Manning & Grant Campbell are progressing well.  We also hope to see our Vincent x Neishars Jet filly back at the Graham Lyon stables shortly. On the breeding scene we have had mixed fortune with our mares to date.  Last month I mentioned our part owned mare She Will Rock had foaled a Ride High colt and as we all do, we were very excited for our partners in the mare.  Unfortunately, a fortnight after arriving we lost our colt which was devastating news for everyone.  Our Sweet Lou x Masterkova filly which arrived in November has also had a visit to the veterinary clinic for an operation to remove bone chips and repair a damaged growth plate.  She is doing well, and we are still confident about her racing future.  But there is good news with Magical producing a colt foal by Zenith Stride, Watch the Dream producing a filly by Always B Miki and Carerra Mystic producing a colt by Captain Crunch in December, all doing well.  We will upload photos of all our foals in the next day or so. On another positive note Our Narissa Franco has a positive to Poster Boy, Carrera Mystic a positive to Pebble Beach, Masterkova a positive to Captain Crunch, She Will Rock a positive to Vincent and we await results on Watch the Dream to Downbytheseaside and Magical to King of the North. It is a great time of the year for harness racing with the Country Cups kicking off at Bendigo last Saturday night then heading to Shepparton, Ballarat and then on to the Hunter Cup.  The running of the Maori Mile for trotters at Bendigo on Saturday night was a highlight and we would like to congratulate Chris Svanosio for his training and driving performance on Arcee Phoenix breaking the track record on the night.  Chris trained She Will Rock for our syndicate, and he certainly deserves all the accolades he gets on what was a fantastic training and driving performance.  Max Delight won the Bendigo pacing Cup after a brilliant drive from Nathan Jack. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update November 2023

It has been a little while since we provided an update at Yorkshire Park and as always there is a little bit going on. On the racing scene Yorkshire Park bred or raced horses added another 4 wins to the tally with Good Word That returning from a spell with 2 impressive wins at Swan Hill in pretty slick time driven on both occasions by Tayla French.  It’s great to see the little fella back which takes him to 5 wins to date as he followed up the wins with a very good 3rd beaten 2 metres at Mildura.  Azterian continued on his winning way in WA with a win at Gloucester Park which took him over the $60K in prizemoney with 9 wins.  Kialla Kid made it win number 3 with an impressive 16.5 metre victory at Albury on Tuesday 14 November driven by Damian Wilson. Our Miki Diva has headed to Tasmania to join the Adrian Duggan stable with another of Yorkshire Park owned horse in Classy Countess.  Good to see Classy Countess finish 2nd in her return from a spell last Friday night in the 1120 metre races held at Hobart. Jets Art has headed to the paddock for a spell while our Vincent filly out of Neishars jet is progressing quite nicely.  Also pleased to see the syndicate horse Vegas Diamond filly by American Ideal head to Nathan Jack’s and the Oneminutetodream filly by Soho Tribecca has arrived at Allbenz Park to take up her first preparation with Kerryn Manning & Grant Campbell.  Nevs Dream has also returned from a break, and we are looking forward to a very good season from this mare. On the breeding scene She Will Rock delivered a colt by Ride High on the 11th of November while Masterkova delivered a filly by Sweet Lou on the 5th November.  Really pleasing to see both mares and foals doing well.  Carrera Mystic is due to foal to Captain Crunch any day now, Watch the Dream (Always Be Miki) and Magical (Zenith Stride) are due to foal at the end of the month.  Our Narissa Franco has a 28-day positive test to Poster Boy and is due for her final test this week. Some new arrivals at Yorkshire Park in October with six Murray Grey heifer calves arriving which will be good to keep the grass well eaten down in the lane ways and to run them through the paddocks after the horses have been in them.  It’s been a little while since we have had cattle but this year in particular the amount of feed around heading into summer is a bit of a concern. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park Team.

News Update September 2023

The month of September has begun really well for Yorkshire Park owned or bred horses with five wins up until the 11th of September. It all started with Maestro winning at Yarra Valley, Azterian making his WA debut with a win at Bunbury, followed up by another win at Gloucester Park, Kialla Kid getting the job done at Echuca and finally Our Miki Diva winning very well at Warragul.  It certainly great to see the winners coming along after a really slow start to the year. A number of our horses are returning to the racing scene with Classy Countess (Adrian Duggan Hobart), Nev’s Dream (Mark Watson Kyabram) both back in full work while Jets Art continues on his road to recovery and hopefully won’t be far away.  The Soho Tribecca and American Ideal yearling fillies continue with their preparations while the Vincent filly out of Neishars Jet will be returning shortly. On the breeding scene the first of our mares have headed to stud with She Will Rock (Ride High) only 3 weeks away from foaling while Masterkova (Sweet Lou) and Carrera Mystic (Captain Crunch) are not far away from heading to stud.  It’s certainly getting to that exciting time of the year. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update August 2023

A little bit late with the update for August but I’m pleased to say two more winners for Yorkshire Park owned or bred horses for the month of August.  Jets Art returned from a spell with a very good win at Echuca driven by James Herbertson and King Tintin also returning from a short let up saluted at Wagga with an impressive win to make it win number seven from fourteen starts for the TinTin in America colt driven by Brad Hewitt and prepared by Neil Day.  Classy Countess under the care of Adrian Duggan has returned to work from her let up and Kialla Kid, a Sunshine Beach colt bred by Yorkshire Park continue his consistent run with a number of solid placings following his recent win. We have pretty much finalised our list of mares returning to stud this year: Masterkova to Captain Crunch. Magical to King of the North. She Will Rock to Vincent. Watch the Dream to Downbytheseaside. Carrera Mystic to Pebble Beach. Our Narissa Franco to Poster Boy. Yorkshire Park have also purchased a 10% share in the American Ideal filly out of Vegas Diamond (unraced due to injury) a daughter of Yankee Showgirl who is the dam of School Captain and Tennessee Waltz.  This is a very strong family as the third dam is Aston Villa, the dam of Poster Boy, Yankee Rockstar, Born to Rock N Roll and many others.  The filly has been broken in by Kyabram horseman Mick Blackmore and is currently spelling before heading back for another prep. We see a very good future on the racetrack and in the future the breeding barn. Not long before we start seeing some foals on the ground which is always an exciting time.  Stay tuned as we head into a busy breeding season. Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update June 2023

Yorkshire Park bred horses had a much better month with three winners for the month and multiple placings.  King Tintin made it win number six when he saluted at Wagga in a heat of the Regional Breeders Challenge, Azterian made it win number seven when he won in a tight finish at Echuca and little Syzate duly saluted at Launceston making it win number four.  Classy Countess and Nevs Dream continue to produce honest performance and placings at the track and hopefully both can notch up another win in the future.  Dreams Are Bettor owned by Yorkshire Park and in the care of Adrian Duggan in Tasmania has been very disappointing of late and a collective decision has been made to retire the mare.  We are currently looking at options for life after racing for Emmy and a decision will be made as to the next steps for her in the coming weeks. On the breeding scene we have started to turn our minds to what stallions we will be sending our mares to for the coming breeding season.  Over the next few weeks, we will be booking mares into stud and starting the process all over again. While on breeding the results that have recently been published by HRA suggest that the Victorian breeding season has taken a 23% decline in numbers last year while Tasmania has declined by 17%.  Most of the other states had a small increase or held their numbers for the past season.  Alarm bells should be ringing in the offices of HRA and HRV based on these numbers.  Maybe no one is home! Further updates to follow on this subject along with new stallion options for 2023-2024 season.  Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May 2023

Plenty of action on and off the track for Yorkshire Park over the last month or so with a new acquisition to the breeding band of mares, a track record for a Yorkshire Park bred and sold colt and another of our fillies qualifying recently. Let’s start off with the addition to the breeding barn.  I’m pleased to say that Yorkshire Park have acquired the New Zealand bred Art Major mare Carrera Mystic in foal to Captain Crunch.  Out of the good race mare Maheer Mystic from one of New Zealand best mares Fern Glen the 4-year-old who qualified at the trials in Cambridge didn’t get to the track because of injury.  Yorkshire Park is excited to acquire (Cara) such a prominent and well bred mare and in foal to one of the up-and-coming stallions in Captain Crunch a son of the great Captain Treacherous.  We cannot wait to see what she produces when she is due in November. On the racing scene the Yorkshire Bred 3-year-old colt King Tintin broke the track record at Goulburn on his first start back from a spell winning convincingly in 1.53.9.  That makes it 5 wins from 11 starts for the son of Tintin in America out of our mare Our Narissa Franco.  Really looking forward to seeing where this guy might end up on the racetrack.  Speaking of Our Narissa Franco we have just weaned a filly out of the mare by Vincent.  Let’s hope she has some of those winning ways when she graces the racetrack. Nevs Dream, bred and part owned by Yorkshire Park delivered another win for the mare Watch the Dream when she won convincing at Mildura on Friday night.  Nevs Dream has won twice and been placed on 5 occasions.  Well driven by Ellen Tormey the mare certainly looks like she has more wins in store. Also, good to see the 3-year-old filly Alecia (Yankee Rockstar – Ima Ritzi Lombo) qualify at the trials at Maryborough last week for the Sanderson camp.  Purchased from the yearling sales by Queensland owner Lindsay Gallagher and bred by Yorkshire Park we can’t wait to see her at the races.  Thats about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April 2023

The month of March produced the highs and lows of racing and breeding horses, so let’s start off with the highs. Yorkshire Park bred its first winner in the USA with Drain The Swamp (I Draintheswamp A) winning at Yonkers in 1.54.2 driven by Matt Kakaley.  Drain The Swamp was raced in the Michael Stanley stable in Victoria before being sold to the USA last July.  He has had 11 starts in the USA winning once and being placed on five occasions.  He is Yorkshire Parks first $150K prize money winner and now has a record of 49 starts for 9 wins, 9 seconds and 9 third placings.  On the sad side of things another Yorkshire Park bred horse Glenavril King broke down in a race at Menangle and unfortunately had to be euthanized. His record stood at 87 starts for 14 wins, 12 seconds and 12 thirds with a best time of 1.54.7 and prizemoney of $142K.  He was a beautiful Courage Under Fire gelding out of Lombo Socialite.  To add to the pain our Sydney sales purchase this year, a filly out of Downbytheseaside, had to be put down following a training mishap.  You can’t explain the feeling when these types of freak accidents happen, and we all are deeply saddened by this.  On the racing scene Dreams Are Bettor has been performing well with a second and a third in a heat and final of the Allen Williams Memorial in Tasmania, while Classy Countess just hasn’t had any luck at all recently.  Our Miki Diva will go round at Bendigo this coming Friday 14 April and we look forward to a good showing from her. The Melbourne Nutrien yearling sales came to a close on the 3rd April with both Yorkshire Park yearlings being sold.  Our Vincent out of Watch the Dream colt sold for $40K while our trotting colt by Pastor Stephen out of La Tonneralla sold for $20K.  The Vincent colt heads to the Shaun McNaulty stables in Victoria while the Pastor Stephen colt heads to the Gavan Holt stable also in Victoria. We wish the new owners all the very best with both of these colts. Go Zach and Alfie. On the breeding scene all our mares are progressing well with the planning already starting to take place for the next breeding season.  A lot of time and effort goes into selecting stallions for the mares and no doubt plenty of study of race performances and breeding lines will take up plenty of time. Yorkshire Park were really quite surprised to be nominated in the top three for the Ian Daff Memorial Breeders of the year for 2022.  While we didn’t end up taking out the award, we were very appreciative of being nominated for such a prestigious award and the recognition for our contribution to the Victorian Breeding Industry. Yorkshire Park are also in the negotiating process to purchase a new mare to our breeding barn from New Zealand.  A well credentialled family in New Zealand the mare is in foal for the first time to the highly sort after Captain Crunch, the most successful son of Captaintreacherous.  More news to follow on this one but we expect to have the deal done in the coming week. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update March 2023

It has been a pretty quiet time on the winners scene for Yorkshire Park with a bunch of placings but unable to get one across the line.  Our Miki Diva continues to be there abouts as has Nevs Dream who is starting to show some of her ability at the racetrack.  Good to have Jets Art back in work, Classy Countess and Dreams are Bettor have been disappointing in Tasmania recently.  Hopefully we can snag a couple of winners over the next few weeks. On the sales scene I am pleased to say we picked up a lovely filly by Downbytheseaside out of Rocknroll Pearl in the Sydney Nutrien sale last Sunday.  Lot 190 in the catalogue the filly is out of Rocknroll Pearl (by RocknRoll Heaven) who had a race record of 10 wins and $92,000 in prizemoney with her best winning time being 1.51.7.  She was placed 3rd in the Group 1 NSW Breeders Challenge for 4YO’s and won the heat and final of the Group 3 Go Girlfriend Race Series at Menangle.  The filly is already at the breakers, and we are looking forward to her progress over the coming months. Speaking of yearling sales, we are only 3 weeks away from the Melbourne Nutrien sales at Oaklands Junction commencing April 1 – 3 and Yorkshire Park will be represented by two colts, a pacing colt by Vincent Lot 483 and a trotting colt by Pastor Stephen lot 521.  really looking forward to seeing how they go through the sales. The breeding scene is now over, and I’m pleased to say we had 5 out of our 7 mares get in foal with only La Tonneralla & Sixty Plus missing out.  All the mares are doing well, and we look forward to their progression. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update January 2023

Great start to the 2023 season with the Yorkshire Park owned Our Miki Diva saluting at Bendigo at her first Australian start last Thursday night.  Purchased out of the 2020 NZ Yearling sales the daughter of Always B Miki has provided a few challenges along the way but thanks to John Hay & Ineka Lee in NZ and our trainers Maree and John Caldow her in Victoria the win at our home track was one well worth waiting for.  Let’s hope this is the start of better things for the future. On the breeding scene Masterkova (Sweet Lou), Our Narissa Franco (Poster Boy), and She Will Rock (Ride High) have all had their final positives while Watch the Dream (Always B Miki) and Magical (Zenith Stride) have both 30-day positives.  La Tonneralla (Dancing in the Dark) and Sixty Plus (Pastor Stephen) have recently been served. The 2023 Nutrien Yearling sales in Melbourne on the 1st-3rd April is fast approaching and our two colts Vincent out of Watch the Dream and Pastor Stephen out of La Tonneralla will start their preparation for the sales under the care of Kath McIntosh at Llowalong Farms at Kyabram at the end of January.  Always looking forward to the yearling sales to see how the crop of yearlings come up. Don’t forget you can contact us on twitter @yorkshirepark19 or face book at Yorkshire Park or via email dennis@yorkshirepark.com.au.  We will be putting together a new syndicate in the new year so if you are interested just make contact and we can discuss further.  That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December 2022

A quick update on progress to date with Yorkshire Park as we approach the end of 2022 heading into hopefully what will be an exciting and fruitful 2023. On the racing scene I’m pleased to say that Azterian saluted at Warragul on the 21 December in a blistering 1.54.9 just 0.1 second outside the track record winning by 31.4 metres.  A big congratulations to John & Maree Caldow and the winning connections.  That makes it win number 26 for Yorkshire Park bred or owned horses in 2022. This coming week will be a big one for Yorkshire Park bred horses as Maestro will contest the Group 1 Vicbred Super Series 4YO Trot at Melton Saturday night and his half-brother La Volonte will contest the 2YO Group 1 Vicbred Super Series Trot at Melton.  Good luck to both groups of owners and hopefully you have a bit of luck in running. Both events carry total prize money of $100,000. On the breeding scene we have 45-day positive test for She Will Rock (Ride High), a 14-day positive for both Masterkova (Sweet Lou), Our Narissa Franco (Poster Boy) and Watch the Dream has been served by Always B Miki.  Still waiting on Magical, La Tonneralla and Sixty Plus. It is that time of the year again so on behalf of everyone at Yorkshire Park we wish you a Merry Xmas and a safe and prosperous 2023. Don’t forget you can contact us on twitter @yorkshirepark19 or face book at Yorkshire Park or via email dennis@yorkshirepark.com.au.  We will be putting together a new syndicate in the new year so if you are interested just make contact and we can discuss further.  That is about all for now.

News Update December 2022

It’s great to be back online with our new and improved Yorkshire Park web site which has been under review for the last three months.  A big thank you to Lauren at Tough Cookie Marketing for the work that has gone into the site and the patience she has shown with the many changes we had along the way. So, there is a lot to update but let’s start with the racing scene. Drain The Swamp who has won over $120k in prizemoney and one of Yorkshire Park’s favorites has been sold to the USA from the Mick Stanley Stable.  We wish the new owners all the very best with him and we look forward to his racetrack debut in the USA most likely at Yonkers in the coming month or so. Fantastic to see King Tintin sold by Yorkshire Park at the 2021 Nutrien Yearling sales make it 2-year-old win number four recently in a heat of the Breeders Challenge Eastern division at Penrith last week and he will contest the Group 3 $30,000 Final at Newcastle this Friday night (9/12) to be driven by Amy Day.  La Volonte (by Used To Me) will make his racetrack debut (8/12) at Maryborough, Kialla Kid (by Sunshine Beach) two starts to date, Dreams of Art (by Art Major) has trialled and Alecia (by Yankee Rockstar) were all sold out of the Nutrien sale that year. Winners bred or owned by Yorkshire Park since our last update have been Glenavril King, Maestro, Azterian, Hancocks Hero, Good Word That, Rocking Bugatti and Nevs Dream.  Up until today we had reached 25 winners for the 2022 season.  The good news is that our NZ filly Our Miki Diva is also in training and on her way back to the racetrack under the care of John & Maree Caldow. Classy Countess has found her way to the Adrian Duggan stable in Hobart to join our other owned filly Dreams Are Bettor.   On the breeding scene we have had two fillies this year by Rock N Roll Heaven (Neishars Jet) and Vincent (Our Narissa Franco).  Sadly, we did lose a colt by Captain Treacherous out of Masterkova who unfortunately died when foaling. The 2023 Nutrien yearling sales will see Yorkshire Park be represented by two colts, Vincent out of Watch the Dream and a trotting colt by Pastor Stephen out of La Tonneralla.  Stay tuned for more details for the sales commencing 1 April in Melbourne. One of the sad things to happen was the retirement of both Magical and She Will Rock due to injury. Both mares were bred and sold by Yorkshire Park but Magical has returned after we decided we should purchase her back for breeding.  She Will Rock is part owned by Yorkshire Park.  Mares this year due to get in foal are: She Will Rock to Ride High La Tonneralla to Speeding Spur. Magical to Zenith Stride. Masterkova to Sweet Lou. Watch The Dream to Always Be Miki. Our Narissa Franco to Poster Boy. Sixty Plus to Pastor Stephen. A lot has been happening over the last three months but we look forward to bringing you monthly updates on our racing team and breeding activities. To close of I would like to dedicate this web site to my uncle Allan Lyon who passed away recently after an illness.  Al would always pester me to update the web site so he could keep track of what was going on with the horses and sadly we didn’t get to finish the new site before his passing.  This one is for you Al. Don’t forget you can contact us on twitter @yorkshirepark19 or face book at Yorkshire Park or via email dennis@yorkshirepark.com.au.  We will be putting together a new syndicate in the new year so if you are interested just make contact and we can discuss further.  That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May 2022

UPDATE: King Tintin wins at his first start. The Yorkshire Park bred 2 YO King Tintin (by Tin Tin In America out of Our Narissa Franco) made an impressive racetrack debut winning at Wagga on Friday 20 May.  Driven by trainer Neil Day the good looking chestnut colt recorded a time of 1.55.8 running down the leader in the final bound.  A lot to look forward too with this bloke.  News Update May 2022 Winners have been a challenge so far this year but it was great to see Maestro win at Cranbourne on Sunday night under the guidance of Chris Alford.  At just his second start back from a spell the Love You gelding circled the field in the last lap to hit the front on the turn and hang on for a nice win.   Big performance from Drain The Swamp at Menangle with a fast finishing second in the APG 4 YO Entires & Geldings Group 1 final recently in a good time of 1.51.6 beaten 3.2 metres.  That placing took his career prizemoney to over the $100K mark and they way he finished off the race would suggest that there is another good win just around the corner.   Pleasing to see Threehundredcash make her race track debut recently.  The daughter of Vickymurphy by Well Said will continue to improve with racing and we all think she will be no doubt bettor next preparation.  Classy Countess continues her consistent form with another good placing at Cranbourne on Sunday night and another win is not far away. Great news from across the ditch in New Zealand with our Always B Mikki 3 YO filly Miki Diva making her race track debut at Ashburton recently.  In a sizzling 1.55.6 she came from back in the field to finish 5th over the mile.  A week later she headed to Rangiora and continued that promising debut with a fast finishing 3rd over 2000 metres coming from four back on the fence to just go down by a couple of metres.  She now heads to Rangiora again this Sunday (22nd) in the $18,000 final and with a good draw a promising run is expected.  It has been a long road for the filly to get to the race track thanks to the efforts of Ineka Lee & John Hay.  Purchased at the NZ Standardbred yearling sale in Christchurch in 2020 for $14,000 by Yorkshire Park the filly has come a long way but looks to have a promising future. The breeding season will be upon us before we know it and we are already looking to the what mares we will breed this coming season to what stallions.  Plenty of study to take place over the next month or so. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April 2022

News Update April 2022 The 2022 Nutrien Standardbred Yearling sales has now been and gone and I’m pleased to say both the Yorkshire Park bred colts have been sold and now take the next step in their careers.  Our Lot 112 Sweet Lou out of Watch The Dream colt will head to the stables of Ted Caruana and Lot 193 our American Ideal out of Masterkova colt will head to the Tyson Linke stables in South Australia.  Pleasingly our Sweet Lou colt won the best presented pacing colt in the sale something that we are very proud off and thankful for the work that Dean & Blanche Poole from Rhiannon Park had put into both our colts for the sales. Classy Countess returned from a spell with a gutsy win at Cranbourne last Sunday much to the delight of the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate members.  Bred by Yorkshire Park the 4 year old mare made it win number two.  Classy Countess is leased to the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate and is in the care of Scot Ewen.  Drain The Swamp also made a winning return from a spell with a convincing win at Stawell in late March.  The highly talented pacer will have a few better races on his raider in the next couple of months. Good to see Threehundredcash qualify at the trials recently under the guidance of Graham Lyon.  Bred by Yorkshire Park by Well Said out of Vickymurphy the 3 year old filly is a half sister to Drain The Swamp and is expected to make her racetrack debut in the next week or so.  Across the ditch in New Zealand our 3 Year old filly Miki Diva has qualified at the trials on Saturday and she will head to the trials again in the next week. Dreams Are Bettor will head to the races next Sunday before a decision is made on her racing future.   That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting.

News Update February / March 2022

News Update February / March 2022 A better month so far in the winners circle with Rocking Bugatti, Syzate & Aitutaki all winning in March with Magical saluting in January.  It has been a slower start to the year in comparison to last year but we are starting to see a number of Yorkshire Park bred or owned horses heading back to the track in recent months. Last month Magical, who was bred and sold by Yorkshire Park unfortunately bled during a race at Globe Derby which prompted her owners to look at retiring the Angus Hall five year old with a career of 33 starts, 2 wins, 7 seconds and 3 thirds with a best time of 2.0.3 and prizemoney of $25,826.  A quick phone call to the trainer, negotiation with the owner and the result is a successful return to Yorkshire Park for the mare.  It is fantastic to have her back in our ownership and we will now look to a stud season for her later in the year.  At this stage she will most likely go to Love You or Quaker Jet. Good to see Miki Diva progressing well in New Zealand which hopefully will see her at the trials in the next week or so.  Jets Art continues his great form while Dreams Are Bettor continues to frustrate us with her performances in Tasmania.  Hopefully the Artsplace mare can get her act together shortly.   She Will Rock has headed back to Chris Svanosio’s stables after a month spell at Yorkshire Park and we look forward to the next preparation for the Rock N Roll Heaven mare.    Our two yearlings heading to the Nutrien  yearling sale at Oaklands Junction on the 3 April are progressing well and we look forward to a successful sale.  The boys are being prepared by Dean & Blanche Poole at Rhiannon Park. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update January 2022

News Update January 2022 Great to get through X-mas & New Year and enjoy the company of family and friends.  Fantastic to take the time out to discuss all things horses with who ever wanted to chat racing, breeding or the upcoming yearling sales.  It is a great time of the year to take time out and reflect on 2021 and all the challenges that came with it. For Yorkshire Park bred or raced horses we ended the year with 27 wins which was slightly below what we wanted to achieve for 2021 but more than we had in 2020.  the 27 wins came from 11 individual winners with Glenavril King 5, She Will Rock 4, Drain The Swamp 4 and Jets Art 3 being the major contributors. Last year we aimed for 3 winners per month so we should lock that in for our 2022 target. The 2022 Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling sales held in Melbourne on 3 April will see two of Yorkshire Park bred yearlings entered for the sales.  The first is a colt (Lot 112) by Sweet Lou out of the very well bred New Zealand mare Watch The Dream who is by Bettors Delight out of the very good mare Dreamy Atom NZ 2 Year Old Filly of the Year and the dam of Western Dream, Western Cullen, Dream Royal and the unraced mare Christian Dreamer who is the dam of Amazing Dream and Lets Chase The Dream.  This colt is about the only Sweet Lou that doesn’t have any white markings on him but he does look like he will be a get up and go horse early. The second of our sales yearlings is Lot 193 a colt by American Ideal out of Masterkova who is by the great Falcon Seelster out of Vickymurphy by Bettors Delight.  This is a well known family in Australia with the third dam being Vicky Hanover (Broodmare of the Year) the dam of Same Old Macray, Dee En Ay Macray and Bomber Macray.  This colt is a lovely big strong colt who looks every bit a race horse.  Both yearlings will be prepared by Dean and Blanche Poole who always do a fantastic job in preparing the horses for the sales. Disappointing not to be able to attend the NZ Yearling sales in February again this year but that’s the way it plays out.  Tough times for many people at the moment so shouldn’t complain about not being able to head off and enjoy the yearling sales and company of our friends across the ditch. Yorkshire Park will again be on the look out at all the yearling sales this year so if you are interested in joining a syndicate just let me know. While on the subject of New Zealand it is great to see Miki Diva back in work under the guidance of John Hay in Ashburton.  Hopefully the Always B Miki filly can stay sound and we see her at the track in a couple of months time. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December 2021

News Update November 2021 Not a lot to report on the racing scene with Azterian providing Yorkshire Park bred or owned horses with win no 27 for the year, Classy Countess, Jets Art and Glenavril King being placed on multiple occasions.  Hopefully we can finish off the year with a few winners over X-Mas. Good news from New Zealand with Miki Diva given the all clear to resume racing after an injury enforced 6 month spell while She Will Rock unfortunately missed the Vic Bred series with swelling to the fetlock joint.  Good news also on that front is she appears to be back on track with nothing showing any concern from her X – Ray. It was good to see Glenavril King return to the race track under new ownership and trainer now prepeared by Shane Sanderson at Charlton and driven by his son Ryan.  His two runs back have been terrific so hopefully he can put a win on the board for the new owners shortly. On the breeding scene Watch The Dream delivered a really impressive Vincent colt while both Sixty Plus (positive to Pastor Stephen) and Neishars Jet (positive to Rock N Roll Heaven) are in foal.  Travelled to Alabar today to bring home Our Narissa Franco who has a positive test to Vincent.  Just waiting on Watch The Dream and La Tonneralla for their positives in foal. On behalf of everyone at Yorkshire Park have a safe and happy X-Mas and we all look forward to a positive 2022. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update November 2021

News Update November 2021 A quite last couple of months in the winners circle although Syzate made it 2 wins from 5 starts with a come from behind win at Launceston driven by Bronte Miller which made it win number 26 for the year for Yorkshire Park bred or owned horses. On the breeding scene La Tonneralla foaled colt by Pastor Stephen and Neishers Jet foaled a filly by Vincent in the last couple of weeks.  Watch The Dream is due to foal in late November early December. Good news with Masterkova having a positive test Captainteacherous while Our Narissa Franco has a positive test to Vincent. She Will Rock turned in a fantastic performance to finish 4th in 1.51.9 behind some quality mares in the Group 3 race last week and she is mixing it with the best mares at the moment.  Jets Art resumed with a good 3rd beaten 4 metres at Charlton today, Dreams Are Bettor returns to the trials tomorrow night at Hobart while Miki Diva is due to return to work next month in New Zealand under the care of John Hay at Ashburton. Both our yearlings are progressing well and we look forward to the Nutrien Standardbred sale in April next year in Melbourne.  Ollie (Sweet Lou colt) and Sam (American Ideal colt) are really starting to develop and as the weather gets better we expect them to fill out even further, add the finishing touches by our preparers Blanche & Dean Poole at Rhiannon Park and we look forward to an exciting sale. Catalogues will be out shortly. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update October 2021

News Update October 2021 A good month or so on the race track for Yorkshire Park Bred horses with Maestro winning at Geelong and Melton, Drain The Swamp winning at Kilmore and Syzate winning at Hobart.  Really pleased to see little Syzate winning with 16 year old Bronte Miller in the cart, a great win for Bob Graham who purchased her from Yorkshire Park.  Syzate is a half sister to the very well performed and Yorkshire Park bred and part owned She Will Rock. While on She Will Rock, she finished a really good 3rd placing at Bendigo on Saturday night in the Group 3 Alabar Vic Bred Platinum which makes it two placings in Group 3 company after finished 3rd earlier in the year in the Jane Ellen. Good to see both Jets Art and Nevs Dream back in work with Dreams are Bettor having a couple of weeks light work following a little injury issue.  Miki Diva still has a couple of months to go before we see her back in work.  John Hay in NZ reports she is doing really well and can’t wait to get her back in work. On the breeding scene we await the arrival of our Pastor Stephen foal out of La Tonneralla which will make he or she a half to the very well performed Jilliby Babavska and also recent multiple winner Maestro.  All mares are now at stud ready to be served or waiting to foal down.  It certainly is an exciting time for everyone awaiting the safe arrival of new born foals. Great night of racing last Saturday night at Bendigo with the Victoria Cup (Group 1), Lather Up Victoria Derby (Group 1), Pryde’s Easy Feed Victoria Oaks (Group 1), Bill Collins Trotters Sprint (Group 1), Alabar Vic Bred Platinum Home Grown 2YO Colts & Geldings and 2YO Fillies (Group 2), The Holmfield 3YO Trotters (Group 2), Popular Alm Sprint (Group 3) and finally the Alabar Vic Bred Platinum (Group 3).  You are not going to see better racing than that on one night. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update September 2021

News Update September 2021 Great to see Classy Countess break through for her first win for the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate at Ballarat recently for trainer driver Scott Ewen.  The filly bred by Yorkshire park and leased to the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate managed by David Scott proved to strong to the line to beat a really nice group of fillies.  Well done to all the owners in the syndicate. Drain The Swamp continued on his winning ways with back to back wins at Ballarat and Bendigo in really good style.  The colt by Somebeachsomewhere out of Vickymurphy certainly looks to have plenty of wins in store to come. The winner of 5 races and $52K in prizemoney has plenty of upside. Interesting race at Hobart on Friday night (10th September) with two Yorkshire Park horse going head to head over the 2090 metre race.  Syzate bred by Yorkshire Park has drawn barrier 6 while Dreams Are bettor owned by Yorkshire park has drawn the outside barrier 7.  Maybe a dead heat would be a great result! Sad to hear during the week that Jilliby Babavska bred by Yorkshire Park has been retired after an exciting but somewhat challenging racing career.  Trained by Paddy Lee the Sundon gelding struggled with injury in recent years but finished off with an imposing record of 12 wins and 5 placings from 28 starts and almost $92K in prizemoney.  Runner up in the Group 1 2YO Breeders Crown Final coming from last and being beaten a neck was a notable performance along with his Group 3 win in the Lenin Trotters Free For All.  Not always displaying his best manners he had an explosive sprint that was at times devastating.  A big congratulations to Paddy Lee for his time, patience and decision to retire the horse at the right time.   Jets Art & Nevs Dream have both gone to the paddock for a short let up while Miki Diva will still be in the spelling paddock for a couple of more months in New Zealand. Almost time for our first foal this year as La Tonneralla is due to foal early October to Pastor Stephen.  Really excited to see what she produces.  Neishars Jet (Vincent) and Watch The Dream (Vincent) will also foal later in the season. Last week we entered two colts in the Nutrien Equine Melbourne Standardbred sale in April 2022.  An American Ideal out of Masterkova and a Sweet Lou out of Watch The Dream.  I think we have the only Sweet Lou with no white markings on him. That is about all for now. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update August 2021

News Update August 2021 A good couple of weeks for the Yorkshire Park owned horses with She Will Rock putting up a gallant effort to sit in the death seat and finish third in the Group 3 Jane Ellen at Melton on Saturday night.  The Rock n Roll Heaven mare looks in terrific shape at the moment and performances like Saturday night against class mares hopefully sets her up for more success. Jets Art continued his consistency with a solid third at Bendigo after coming from the rear of the field.  From his eleven starts this preparation he has had three wins, three seconds, three thirds and two fourths.  The big fella just keeps on improving and more wins are definitely in store for the Major In Art gelding. Dreams Are Bettor made her race track debut for Adrian Duggan in Hobart on Sunday night and finished a really good third placing beaten only by four metres in 2.0.5.  The Artspeak filly has taken a bit of time to get to the track but she looks as though she will improve fitness wise out of that run so hopefully a win might be just around the corner. Our two year old Nevs Dream has been at the trials over the last couple of weeks and looks about ready to resume her racing career.  Still learning the Sportswriter filly has trialled really well so hopefully a start very soon will see her greeting the judge just around the corner. On the breeding scene Neishars Jet (part owned by Yorkshire Park) will head to stud again this year to the very good stallion Rock N Roll Heaven.   Neishars Jet is due to foal to Vincent this season. Great to see so many good junior drivers coming through the ranks and plying their trade in a really positive manner. The sport  is in good hands with a good young group of trainers doing their thing as well. A special mention to Adam Hamilton for his contribution to the sport of harness racing as he announced his departure from the TAB and Sky.  His contribution to our sport has been nothing short of sensational.  Good luck to Adam in whatever he takes on next , hopefully we haven’t lost him to harness racing. It certainly has been challenging times of late but we hope you all stay safe and well and we look forward to sharing many more winners. Good luck and good punting. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update July 2021

News Update July 2021 A very busy start to the month of July with three winners in the first two weeks headed up by She Will Rock winning her first metropolitan race at Bendigo in sizzling fashion winning by 7.8 metres and superbly driven by Tayla French.  The Yorkshire Park bred and part owned mare made it win number 7 and almost $50K in prizemoney and there looks to be more wins in store for the Rock N Roll Heaven mare. Jets Art continued on his superb form with another convincing victory at Shepparton on Wednesday night coming from last position in the field and working his way round the them to take the lead in the straight and put it beyond doubt.  He is a very promising gelding and there are many more wins in store for the Graham Lyon trained 4 year old. Too top off the week our old favourite Hancocks Hero duly saluted today at Shepparton providing Melinda Thackery her first winning drive and win number 9 for the Yorkshire Park Bred gelding.  A really good effort in a solidly run race. Both Nevs Dream part owned and bred by Yorkshire Park and Dreams Are Bettor owned by Yorkshire Park head back to the trials this week and we look forward to seeing them back racing soon.  Classy Countess continues to be a model of consistency and hopefully will break through soon for the Club 21 syndicate at Cranbourne. On the breeding scene our mares have been booked to stallions for the upcoming breeding season. Masterkova has been booked to be served by Captaintreacherous. (Empire Stallions). Watch The Dream booked to Downbytheseaside. (Woodlands Stud). Our Narissa Franco booked to Vincent. (Alabar Stud). Sixty Plus booked to Speeding Spur. (Woodlands Stud). Our aim at the start of the season we set out to have three wins per month from our owned or bred Yorkshire Park horses.  To date we have reached 18 wins up to the first two weeks in July so still some work to be done this month but hopefully we can be on track soon. Stay safe. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update June 2021

News Update 18 June 2021 Jets Art backed up his good win last Sunday with an impressive win tonight over 1690 metres in the Barastoc Final at Shepparton.  Drawing gate 11 driver David Moran wasted no time in getting up outside the leader and then set about putting the field to the sword with a strong win in 1.57.4 winning by 2 metres.  The Major In Art gelding has been a model of consistency and thoroughly deserved to bring up win number 3. News Update June 2021 The month of May was a pretty quiet month for winners at Yorkshire Park however we have bounced back with both Jets Art and Aitutaki saluting on Sunday 13 June at Shepparton and Devonport respectively.  Jets Art made it win number two with a strong effort, a great result considering he had been placed at his last five starts.  Aitutaki made it win number 11 following a superb drive by Mark Yole to get the veteran pacer home for trainer Geoff Smith. Our aim at the start of the year was to have bred or owned three winners per month and to date we have had 14 wins with still a bit of work to do by the end of June.  Hopefully over the next couple of weeks we can sneak a few more winners to add to the list.  This week we see Jets Art head to Shepparton on Friday night, She Will Rock and Glenavril King at Melton on Saturday night while Aitutaki will go round at Launceston on Sunday night. Miki Diva our 2 YO filly in NZ has headed to the paddock for a 3 month spell but she has done enough to suggest that she will make the grade.  Trainer John Hay at Ashburton is pleased with her progress despite a couple of minor injury set backs. On the breeding scene we have started to look at stallions for our mares in the upcoming breeding season which is not that far away.  At this stage we are looking to send the following mares to stud: Our Narissa Franco (Live or Die) – Stallion to be decided. Masterkova (Falcon Seelster) – potentially Captain Crunch / Downbytheseaside / Always B Miki Watch The Dream (Bettors Delight) – Always B Miki / Captain Treacherous Sixty Plus (Sundon) – definitely Speedy Spur. The only definite here is Sixty Plus to Speeding Spur. Not sure if anyone watch the Harness Jewels day in New Zealand but you could not have been more impressed with the quality of racing and the presentation of the day.  The performance of Akuta in the 2YO Colts & Geldings was something to behold as the Bettors Delight colt absolutely destroyed the opposition in a blistering 1.54.7 which had to be seen to be believed. Group Ones every where and I can’t wait to get across the ditch to partake in the day next year. Hopefully our next update will be about more winners for the Yorkshire Park bred and owned racing team. Stay safe. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May 2021

News Update May 2021 On the racing scene it was fantastic to see Glenavril King pass the $100K mark after a sterling win at Melton earlier in the month.  That makes it win number 12 for the Courage Under Fire gelding as he continues to be a model of consistency.  She Will Rock and Jets Art are both knocking on the door for their next win with both placing in their last few starts and hopefully with a bit of luck will see them in the winners circle very soon.  Nevs Dream has gone for a short let up while both Dreams Are Bettor (tying up)and Miki Diva (soreness in the knee) have both been sidelined for the time being. Last week both our weanling colts arrived back home after some early education under the guidance of Leah Crane at Riverview Lodge and I’m pleased to say they have been great to do anything with so far.  Our American Ideal x Masterkova Colt (Sam) and Sweet Lou x Watch The Dream colt (Ollie) are getting a little more education before both will head to the paddock. Our mares continue to do well with La Tonneralla in foal to Pastor Stephen and Watch The Dream in foal to Vincent.  Masterkova, Our Narissa Franco & Sixty Plus will all head to stud later this year so plenty of thinking to be done before September comes around.  Great to see Our Narissa Franco’s first colt Crazy Shippo score win number 7 last week and now head to the final of the Regional Champions Western Group 1 Final on Wednesday night at Bathurst worth $100K. Hopefully our next update will be about more winners for the Yorkshire Park bred and owned racing team. Stay safe. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April 2021

News Update 1 May 2021 Glenavril King makes it win number 12 and took his prize money to over $100k with a brilliant win at Melton on Saturday night.  Superbly handled by Kerryn Manning the son of Courage Under Fire did work out of the gate early then blistered home to win by a half neck after doing all the work.  No doubt the Yorkshire Park bred gelding put in his best winning performance with a winning mile rate 0f 1.54.7.  Congratulations to Barry & Yvonne Dunn who purchased the gelding from Yorkshire Park at the APG Yearling sales. News Update 29 April 2021 Great to see Drain The Swamp salute at Geelong on Wednesday night winning by 16.2 metres in 1.57.9 following up on his very good second placings since returning from a spell.  The Somebeachsomewhere gelding is stamping himself as a very nice horse and no doubt there will be many wins in store to come.   On the sales front I’m pleased to report that the three quarter brother to Drain The Swamp by Sunshine Beach (lot 182 Nutrien Sale) has now been sold.  He will head to the Dave Farrar stables at Shepparton where he will get every chance. Keep an eye out for both Nevs Dream and Jets Art at Cobram on Monday with both expected to perform well.   News Update: April 2021. Great news today as Drain The Swamp was one of three nominations for Harness Breeders Victoria 2YO Pacing Colt of the year.  While not winning the award we at Yorkshire Park are very excited about his top 3 nomination. Well sales time is over for another year and once again it was an emotional roller coaster with some good results for Yorkshire park and four out of the five yearlings sold.  Here are the results: Art Major x Watch The Dream filly – Sold  – Victoria – $30,000 Yankee Rockstar x Ima Ritzi Lombo filly  – Sold – Queensland – $13,000 TinTin In America x Our Narissa Franco colt  – Sold – NSW – $16,000 Used To Me x La Tonneralla  Colt – Sold – Victoria – $10,000 Sunshine Beach x Vickymurphy – Colt -Passed In A big thank you to Rhiannon Park Blanche & Dean Poole and their team for the work they put in to presenting the yearlings in such great fashion. Check out our new photos from the sales in the photo section of the website. On the racing scene She Will Rock and Glenavril King continue to be a model of consistency while we will see the return of Jets Art to the race track this week.  A very exciting venture to the races will be the Yorkshire Park bred and part owned Sportswriter x Watch The Dream filly Nevs Dream make her race track debut at Melton this coming Friday. In NZ our filly Miki Diva will head to the trials in the next week as she continues her progression to the race track.  Drain The Swamp finished second at his first up run from a spell and will go round again on Wednesday at Yarra Valley as will Hancocks Hero at Mildura.  Dreams Are Bettor has moved down to the stables of Adrian Duggan in Tasmania joining a formerly owned filly Lutetia Midfrew. Stay safe. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update March 2021

News Update: March 2021. A little bit late with the March update this time round but we have had plenty going on in particular the upcoming Nutrien Standardbred Yearling sale on the 10 & 11 April at the William Inglis Complex. Lets start with the sales and I’m pleased to say Yorkshire Park will be presenting 5 lots, 3 colts and 2 fillies.  Last week Rhiannon Park and Campbells comments hosted a live yearling presentation which I had the pleasure of providing insights and comments on our draft along with Brett Coffey from Alabar Bloodstock and Steven Walker who has 2 lots in the sale.  I was really pleased with the way the yearlings have been turned out and thank Blanche & Dean Poole for the work they have put into all the yearlings.  I have posted photos of our yearlings on twitter account @yorkshirepark or Campbells Comments still has the yearling presentation on their web site. Lot 15 Yankee Rockstar / Ima Ritzi Lombo filly (the only Yankee Rockstar in the sale). Lot 42 Used to Me / La Tonneralla colt (Dam is a half to two NZ Derby winners and this colt is a half brother to Jilliby Babavska. Lot 109 TinTin in America / Our Narissa Franco colt (closely related to the very good horse Franco Nelson). Lot 182 Sunshine Beach / Vickymurphy colt (three quarter to the Youthful Stakes winner Drain The Swamp and half to the very speedy Masterkova 1.55.7). Lot 185 Art Major / Watch The Dream filly (one of NZ best families and bred on the same cross as Our Princess Tiffany – a real fillies family with plenty of depth). Contact Yorkshire Park for any further information about the yearlings.  Inspection at Rhiannon Park prior to the sales or come and find us in Barn D at the William Inglis Complex. On the racing scene Glenavril King saluted again at Melton to take his win number to 11 and $85k in prize money.  He has been a real bonus for his owners who purchased him at the APG Yearling sales for $18K. Nevs Dream ( Sportswriter – Watch The Dream) 2 YO filly qualified at the Shepparton trials last week and will be looking to go around again this week at the trials again.  The Yorkshire Park bred and part owned filly looked very good and will no doubt take a lot out of the trial.  Miki Diva is close to the work outs in NZ, while Jets Art will be at the trials again shortly.  She Will Rock continue to be very consistent but can’t quite get a good draw at Melton, a win is just around the corner for her. We are close to the yearling sales now and the excitement builds.  Lets hope that we get good results and our babies go on to be winning race horses. Stay safe. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update January 2021

News Update 26 January 2021 Great to see Glenavril King greet the judge in first position on Monday at Stawell to make it win number eight and $54,000 in prize money.  The bigger part of the story is that the win became Kerryn Manning’s 4,000 race win and to do it on a Yorkshire Park bred horse was exciting.  Kerryn has been a pioneer for female drivers and has set the standard world wide.  Congratulations to Barry Dunn and his wife who own Glenavril King. News Update: 24 January 2021. She Will Rock made it two wins for the month of January with a good performance on Sunday at Cranbourne getting up the sprint lane to win in 1.56.8 driven by Tayla French.  It is a good start to 2021 for the Rock N Roll Heaven mare who looks to be returning to her best. Our Narissa Franco returned home to Yorkshire Park this week.  The half sister to Franco Nelson unfortunately lost her Lincoln Royal colt this year and will wait to be bred again next season.  Dreams Are Bettor returned to John Caldow stables earlier in the month and we look forward to how the Artspeak filly progresses.  A yearling purchase at the Sydney sales by Yorkshire Park in 2019 the filly has already qualified and we look forward to her making her racing debut soon. News Update January 2021 Great start to 2021 with She Will Rock winning at Swan Hill on Tuesday night (5th Jan) by 22 metres in 1.58.4.  The Yorkshire Park bred and part owned filly returned to her very best with an emphatic win and she looks to be back to her very best. Good news that Watch The Dream has an early positive to Vincent and La Tonneralla has been confirmed in foal to Pastor Stephen.  Unfortunately Masterkova has missed to Poster Boy and we still await news on Sixty Plus who is being served by Speeding Spur. Yorkshire Park has always taken an active interest in our horses once they leave our care and it was great to see one of our own feature on the HERO program on Channel Seven then other night.  Artful Christian was bred at Yorkshire Park and sold to Peter Svanosio winning 11 races and placing on 27 other race appearances.  He won $89K in prize money winning in a best time of 1.57.1.  Unfortunately he broke down injuring a tendon but has found his way to the rehoming program HERO after plenty of care from Peter and the vets.  Banker as he is known has now found his way to the care of Holly Lewis who is pursuing a new show career with him.  Check out Harness Racing Victoria face book page on 4 January post to see the story.  Go Banker! Last season Yorkshire Park aimed to win 24 races with it’s owned and bred horses.  We nearly made it with 23 wins for the year which is not a bad performance.  This year 2021 we are pushing the bar a bit higher looking to win 30 races with our own race horses and Yorkshire Park bred horses.  Fingers crossed. Hopefully we have more positive updates in the coming weeks. Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December 2020

News Update December 2020 Great news Saturday night when the Yorkshire Park bred Drain The Swamp duly saluted in the Benstud 2YO Youthful Stakes of $24,000 in 1.54.6 driven by trainer Michael Stanley.  The Somebeachsomewhere x Vicky Murphy gelding led from the mobile and gave nothing else a chance winning by 4.7 metres in impressive fashion.  He performed well in the Breeders Crown series but really found his best when winning Saturday night.  That makes it 11 starts for 2 wins, 3 seconds and a third placing with prize money ticking over $30,000.  Keep a look out for his three quarter brother by Sunshine Beach in the Nutrien Standardbred Equine yearling sales in April. Azterian, Glenavril King & Drain The Swamp all made the Semi Finals of the Vicbred Super Series but all failed to qualify for the Group 1 finals.  On a positive note Maestro qualified for the 2 YO Trotting Colts Group 1 Final with a nice 3rd in his heat but unfortunately his task has been made difficult by drawing barrier 11 in the final. Great to see one of our old favourites Aitutaki win at Devonport on Tuesday night which made it win number 9 and almost $50K in prize money.  To date Yorkshire Park has bred or raced 23 winners for the 2020 year until 29 December with our initial target of 24 wins for the year.   With a bit of luck we will pick up the last win before the year is out. On the breeding scene we were delighted when Watch The Dream produced a colt by Sweet Lou earlier in December with all being well.  La Tonneralla has had a 42 day positive test to Pastor Stephen and we await results for Sixty Plus (Speeding Spur), Masterkova (Poster Boy) & Watch The Dream (Vincent) over the coming weeks. Yorkshire Park would like to wish everyone a Merry and Safe Xmas and a prosperous New Year.   That’s about all for now. Stay safe  Yorkshire Park team.

News Update November 2020 There is no doubt you experience the highs and lows at times in the breeding game and all started off really well when Masterkova presented us a beautiful American Ideal colt during November.  Unfortunately Our Narissa Franco had a colt by Lincoln Royal a week later but it died during birth.  This is a real blow but these things do happen and we have to move on.  We are still waiting for Watch The Dream to foal a Sweet Lou any day now and hopefully all will go well with her.  La Tonneralla has been served by Pastor Stephen and has a 30 day positive result while Sixty Plus and Masterkova will be served this week.  This week we also sold Ima Ritzi Lombo who will continue her broodmare career in Kyabram for new owners. On the racing scene it was good to see Hancocks Hero win recently at Echuca to bring up his seventh career win. He has been a really good horse for his owners and no doubt has a few more wins in store.  He was our only winner for the month of November and despite a few placings it has been a pretty bleak month.  Lutetia Midfrew has been sold and will continue to do her racing in Tasmania still under the guidance of Adrian Duggan.   Our Always B Mikki two year old is now back in work and looks a picture under the care of John Hay in Ashburton New Zealand.  Azterian, Good Word That, Classy Countess, She Will Rock have all returned to the track so hopefully a few winners might be around the corner.  Great to see Drain The Swamp make the Breeders Crown 2YO Colts & Geldings final finishing a respectable eighth in a slick time of 1.55.8 beaten 16 metres.  Jets Art was awarded a race win as a result of a positive swab by the original winner in his debut race.  Its nice to have the win but it will be even better when he wins one in his own right. So with one month of the year to go we sit on 21 winners for the year with our target being 24.  Lets hope we get a few winners in the coming weeks. That’s about all for now. Stay safe  Yorkshire Park team.

News Update October 2020

News Update October 2020 Great to be back on deck to provide an update on all things standardbreds at Yorkshire Park and the coming months as we enter into better weather and hopefully an easing of restrictions due to COVID 19. On the racing scene it was great to see an old favourite of ours, Aitutaki greet the judge at Devonport recently with a stylish win.  He was one of the very first horses Yorkshire Park offered through the APG sales and he has been an old warrior over the journey.  Jets Art resumed racing with three consistent performances being placed in all three but yet to break through.  The Major In Art gelding is not far away from a win after going down by a head today at Charlton.  She Will Rock return to the race track following an operation to remove bone chips from her knee has been a little inglorious.  After choking down and failing to finish at her race track return she then ventured to Cranbourne over a mile and never got into the race at all.  She is in good nick and no doubt we will see better performances soon. Other Yorkshire Park bred horses back at the track are Magical, Maestro and Syzate along with Hancocks Hero and Lutetia Midfrew.  Lutetia Midfrew continues to be very consistent with four placed runs out of her last five starts.  She goes around again at Hobart on Tuesday night (20th) and has drawn to be a good chance. On the breeding scene our mares Masterkova, Watch The Dream and Our Narissa Franco are all due to foal in November so we look forward to having three foals on the ground safe and well. The 2021 Nutrien Standardbred sales catalogue will be out shortly and we look forward to the April sale.  Yorkshire Park have drawn the following lot numbers in the sale: Lot 15 – Yankee Rockstar – Ima Ritzi Lombo Filly. Lot 42 – Used To Me – La Tonneralla Colt. Lot 109 – TinTin In America – Our Narissa Franco Colt. Lot 182 – Sunshine Beach – Vickymurphy Colt. Lot 185 – Art Major – Watch The Dream Filly. All five will be prepared by Blanche & Dean Poole at Rhiannon Park.  Stay tuned for updates in the coming months on their progression to the sales. That’s about all for now. Stay safe  Yorkshire Park team.

News Update August 2020

News Update August 2020 A little bit late with our monthly update but as they say better late than never. On the racing scene congratulations to the owners of Azterian after the consistent 2YO saluted at Cranbourne for trainer Maree Caldow and driver John  Caldow.  Also great to see one of our old favourites Pearlescent winning at Echuca and Hancocks Hero also saluting at Charlton recently.  All three deserve their recent wins and on behalf of Yorkshire Park we congratulate the owners. She Will Rock returned to the trials earlier this month with a solid second in good time at Maryborough.  She will take a lot of improvement from that trial and we expect to see her at the trials again later this month.  The talented Rock N Roll Heaven filly has plenty of upside. Lutetia Midfrew continued her consistent form in Tasmania and is knocking on the door for another win for trainer Adrian Duggan.  Great to see Adrian is on the improve following that nasty fall last month.   Good reports from trainer Graham Lyon on the progression of Jets Art as he prepares to make his race track return while Classy Countess is back at the trials for the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate. Really pleased with the reports out of NZ with our filly Miki Diva (Always B Mikki – Divine Diva) as she progresses in her second preparation.  Lets hope our purchase at the NZ Standardbred yearling sales early this year continues on with her positive progression. We are fast approaching the breeding season and as always look forward to the arrival of our foals this year.  All three are due in November so it will be a very exciting month coming up. Our weanlings are progressing well all be it a bit wet at the moment with the amount of rain we have experienced over the last three months.  Really looking forward to the Nutrien Equine Standardbred sale in April which we will present three colts and two fillies in the sale. The past six months have been really challenging for all with the events of COVID 19 and subsequent lock downs that people have endured.  It is a tough time so make sure you follow all the health advice and keep an eye out for family and friends to ensure we all look after each other.  We will get through this and we can’t wait until we can get back to the races. Stay safe  Yorkshire Park team.

News Update July 2020

News Update July 2020 Another challenging month for the harness racing industry but we are extremely grateful for the work done by Harness Racing Victoria and the industry participants in keeping the industry up and running when a lot of others are not so lucky. On the breeding scene we have booked a couple of our mares into to stallions for the upcoming breeding season along with our partnership in Neishars Jet. Watch The Dream has been booked to Vincent. Masterkova has been booked to Poster Boy. Neishars Jet has been booked to Vincent. We are still working through stallions for our trotting mares Sixty Plus and La Tonneralla and yet to decide on Our Narissa Franco. On the racing scene we are yet to record a winner for the month of July with a number of placings and fourth finishes.  Both Azterian and Hancocks Hero have been a model of consistency and both should record victories in the near future.  She Will Rock continues to progress well on her comeback and Jets Art is back in work after a short let up.  Miki Diva has finished her preparation in NZ pleasing all with the progress she has made.  She will have a month in the paddock before heading back into work. Great to see one of our old timers return to the track in Tasmania recently in Aitutaki.   The news was not great for our trainer in Tasmania Adrian Duggan after suffering a badly broken ankle in a fall at Hobart recently.  We certainly wish Adrian a speedy recovery and hopefully Lutetia Midfrew will do the right thing by him and win for us on Friday night. Yorkshire Park will this sell our yearlings through the 2021 Nutrien Standardbred Yearling sales in April with the following entries: Art Major x Watch The Dream filly, Yankee Rockstar x Ima Ritzi Lombo filly, Used to Me x La Tonneralla colt, Sunshine Beach x Vickymurphy colt and a TinTin In America x Our Narissa Franco colt.  Yorkshire park is excited to join Nutrien in this new sale and once again all our yearlings will be prepared by Rhiannon Park proprietors Dean & Blanche Poole. That’s about all for now, look forward to continuing to find a winner or two.    Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May 2020

News Update May 2020  A little bit later this month with our news update but there is still plenty going on in these uncertain times.  The good thing is that we are still racing despite COVID 19 restrictions and a big congratulations must go to Harness Racing Victoria and all the participants for enabling us to continue to race. On the racing scene we were delighted when Magical saluted for her first race victory at Kilmore recently on the back of some good performances.  Congrats to Brent Lilley and the team for the work they have put into this filly.  Another Yorkshire Park bred trotter Maestro made his race track debut but unfortunately got it all wrong galloping away from the stand and then copping interference in the run to finish sixth.  His trial form had been faultless with three trial wins and trotting all the way but the old saying race day is different to the trials come to the fore.  Despite that I’m sure he will make his mark at the races shortly.   Glenavril King continued on his winning way with some impressive performances and Rocking Bugatti just continues to knock up placings so hopefully a win just around the corner for him.  Jets Art made his race track debut with an impressive debut 2nd followed by a big effort to run fourth at his next start followed by another second placing again tonight (20 May).  Once he learns to race he will be a nice horse.  A couple of other Yorkshire Park bred horses have been to the trials, Good Word That qualified impressively at Terang and the trotter Miss Maia made her trials debut at Albion Park for Jack Butler with a 41 metre trial win.  This week Dreams are Bettor (purchased by Yorkshire Park at the 2019 APG Sydney sale) made her trials debut in an impressive fashion with a nice third placing at Melton under the guidance of John Caldow.  She will have another Melton trial before heading for a short let up. On the breeding scene all the foals have been, or are in the process of being weaned and having some education before returning to Yorkshire Park.  A big thank you to Benstud, Northern Rivers Equine and Riverview Lodge for their assistance in this process. Sad also to hear the news about Graeme Lang this week, another legend of the game lost and obviously a tough couple of weeks for the Lang family after losing Gavin a couple of weeks ago.  It was great reliving some of the old races with Graeme Lang a master driver and trainer especially the great trotting mare Scotch Notch. That’s about all for now, look forward to continuing to find a winner or two.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April 2020

Update 26 April Last Friday harness racing lost one of its true champions, a legend of the game in Gavin Lang.  Over 6,000 winners, 100 Group Ones and an absolute marvel in his ability to find the line when you thought he was in the most hopeless of positions.  Gavin was a man a few words but when he spoke everyone listened.  Young drivers all over the country wanted to be Gavin Lang, he was their idol.  A brilliant trainer and had a unique ability to see what we going to happen on the race track before it did.  He was well known for his ability to understand and read form. In my time in harness racing two absolutely brilliant drivers stood out for different reasons. Vin Knight and Gavin Lang.   Yorkshire Park sends its condolences to Meagan and his daughters and all the Lang family.   Gav, thanks for the memories and always saying hello. News Update April 2020 Plenty of excitement over the last month with the race track debut of the Yorkshire Park bred and Michael Stanley trained colt Drain The Swamp.  By Somebeachsomewhere out of Vickymurphy the two year old was really impressive on his race track debut finishing 3rd in the Victorian Sapling Stakes in 1.55.1 after sitting in the death seat.  He probably cost himself the race over the last 400 metres by wanting to hang in but it didn’t take long for him to record his first race victory when he lined up a week later to eclipse his rivals over the 1720 metre trip last Thursday at Melton winning by 19.4 metres in 1.55.5.  He will back up again next Friday 17th at Ballarat to see if he can add to his already impressive race track performances. Also making her debut was Classy Countess, bred and owned by Yorkshire Park but leased to the Cranbourne Club 21 Syndicate the filly made a mistake in both her racetrack appearances to date.  Reports from training Scott Ewan is that she is still learning and will head back to the trials to sort out a few little issues with her. Also good news is that our Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite gelding sold to Steve Blacker is progressing well and will head to the trials shortly.  Named Good Word That, he has pleased his trainer with his work to date and we can’t wait to see him grace the track. Another of our Yorkshire Park bred horses has also been named by Love You out of La Tonneralla called Maestro.  Trained by Brent Lilley we are really looking forward to this guy heading to the track as he is a half brother to the very good trotter Jilliby Babavska and also the filly Magical who continues to perform well at the track. The Yorkshire Park purchase at this years NZ Sales, Miki Diva is progressing well in New Zealand under the care of John Hay at Ashburton.  She is now in the cart and from all reports is pleasing with her progress and is a good natured filly. Yorkshire Park have leased out our Western Terror x Jewel Bromac yearling to Jeff Cakebread at Barham and she too is progressing well in her early education.  We will certainly be cheering her on as she holds a pretty special spot in our hearts at Yorkshire Park. On the race track a number of our Yorkshire Park bred horses continue to perform well with Rocking Bugatti, Magical, Glenavril King, Hancocks Hero and Pearlescent all being placed recently.  Yorkshire Park has also sold it’s interest in the mare Alta Mach and she will be heading to a new stable and we wish them all the best with the Mach Three filly. It’s weaning time at the moment and our babies will be heading off to be weaned from their mums and start their next phase of life.  It is a good time of the year and we really look forward to getting them back home and start the education process. It is a trying time at the moment and everyone’s world has been turned upside down with the event of the corona virus and the challenges it presents to our industry and people across the world.  I must congratulate Harness Racing Victoria on the way in which they have handled this situation and to enable us to keep the industry going has been quite amazing.  We certainly pray for everyone out their to be safe and look after each other. That’s about it for now, look forward to bringing you further updates on Yorkshire Park.

News Update March 2020

News Update March 2020 A busy month for Yorkshire Park following on from a very successful New Zealand Yearling sales week which resulted in the purchase of a filly by Always B Miki out of Divine Diva (Mach Three) named Miki Diva.  I was really impressed with this filly, a nice type with plenty of scope and a fantastic nature about her. She will head to the John Hay stables at Ashburton about an hour south of Christchurch.  The filly presents plenty of options being eligible for all the NZ feature races including the Harness Millions but also eligible for the Breeders Crown, Bathurst and being VicBred as well.  At this stage we may look to put together a syndicate to race the filly – more to come on this one. Both Auckland and Christchurch sales were very strong with top of the market being a filly and a colt reaching $280,000 each.  The excitement and enthusiasm amongst buyers and vendors was really good and the horses were presented really well.  A credit to NZ Bloodstock Standarbred team on the way they presented and marketed the sales. Great to be a guest of NZ Bloodstock at dinner on the Sunday night at Alexandra Park and even more special to sit with USA leading trainer Ron Burke and NZ trainer Cran Dalgety.  Pretty special night I must say.  Also great to catch up with NZ trainer Ray Green in Christchurch to discuss his purchases at the sales including a couple of the $200,000 plus yearlings, and chat about all things harness racing. A trip to Woodlands Stud prior to the sales was a highlight of the week in NZ to look at the biggest operation in NZ Standardbreds.  Thank you to everyone at Woodlands for their hospitality and support over the week.  On the racing scene it is always a buzz when one of your yearlings sold at the sales makes their race track debut.  This Saturday at Melton Drain The Swamp (not sure about the name) will contest the Breckon Farms Sapling stakes after two impressive trials for the Michael Stanley stable.  By Somebeachsomewhere out of Vickymurphy, Buster as he was called at home will no doubt acquit himself well.  Good luck to the owners and Yorkshire Park will be there to cheer him on.  Also about to make her racetrack debut will be Classy Countess a filly by Village Jolt that Yorkshire Park have leased to the Club 21 syndicate.  At this stage it looks like it will be Geelong on the 11 March so stay tuned. Alta Mach returns to the race track on Saturday night at Globe Derby under the care of Ryan Hryhorec while Lutetia Midfrew finished a really good third placing last week in Hobart, her first run back from a spell and according to trainer Adrian Duggan their is improvement in her to come.  Dreams Are Bettor returns to the John Caldow stables this weekend and will hopefully progress to racing stage this time in. I’m pleased to say that the Yorkshire Park bred and part owned filly She Will Rock (6 start for 3 wins and 2 seconds) is progressing well following surgery to remove bone chips in her knee.  She looks a treat and will remain in the paddock until the end of March before we assess if it is time to bring her back into work. Our foals born this season are all doing well and we look forward to the weaning process coming up in the next month or so.  The three colts and two fillies will come in for a bit of handling and education before heading back to the paddock, this time without their mums. Yorkshire Park still has two yearlings for sale, both fillies. Well Said – Vickymurphy filly (half sister to Drain The Swamp & Masterkova) Western Terror x Jewel Bromac (half sister to Jilliby Macarena). Give me a all if you have any interest in the fillies. That’s about it for now but we look forward to what should be an exciting couple of months.

News Update February 2020

News Update February 2020 The APG Yearling sales in Melbourne proved to be a tough gig for breeders as a number of lots were passed in and plenty of bargains available for buyers.  Once again the preparers did a terrific job and presented all the yearlings in first class order. For Yorkshire Park it was a mixed sale with both lots initially passed in before we managed to secure the sale of our Sportswriter x Watch The Dream filly, Lot 60 for $25,000.  The filly will head to the Mark Watson stable at Kyabram and I’m pleased to say Yorkshire Park will retain and interest in the filly.  Our Well Said x Vickymurphy filly, Lot 53 was passed in and we are still fielding inquiries from potential buyers at present.   There is no doubt that a review of the APG sale process needs to take place in order to build the confidence of buyers and breeders for future sales.   On the racing scene a couple of our yearlings  (now 2YO’s) from last year have been named or have already graced the trials and qualified to race.  Most notably the Somebeachsomewhere out of Vickymurphy colt sold to the Michael Stanley stable qualified at Melton today (11/2) finishing second beaten a metre in 1.57.8 working home in a 55.8 for the last half.  Named Drain The Swamp the big fella performed really well and he is in good hands with the Michael Stanley stable.  We expect to see him at the races shortly. Our Village Jolt filly out of Ima Ritzi lombo leased to the Cranbourne Club 21 syndicate has been named, Classy Countess, and we expect she will be at the trials shortly.  Syzate by Heston Blue Chip out of My Little Black Dress has also qualified and we look forward to seeing her at the track in the near future. Yorkshire Park bred Hancocks Hero graced the winners circle again last week, win number 4, as the Alta Christiano gelding continues to be a model of consistency.  Glenavril King finished a close second last week and a win is in store for him just around the corner.  Rocking Bugatti also continues to be a model of consistency with two recent seconds and he will line up at Bendigo on the 13 February. Yorkshire Park owned Lutetia Midfrew looks an absolute treat in the care of Adrian Duggan and no doubt she will look to improve on her winning record.   This week I will be heading to the NZ yearling sales in Auckland and Christchurch which will also include a visit to Woodlands Stud.  I really look forward to seeing this years crop of yearlings from both islands as we enjoy the hospitality of our kiwi counterparts. That’s about all for now and I look forward to giving you an update on the NZ sales.

News Update December 2019

News Update December 2019 Yorkshire Park welcomed a filly out of Watch The Dream by Art Major last week to add to our foals over the last month.  La Tonneralla had a colt by Used To Me, Our Narissa Franco had a colt by Tintin In America and Ima Ritzi Lombo had a filly by Yankee Rockstar.  This only leaves Vickymurphy to foal later in December to Sunshine Beach. On the racing scene Yorkshire Park bred horses delivered six wins for the month of November with She Will Rock 2 wins, Jilliby Babavska, Hancocks Hero, Glenavril King & Go Home Jo all saluting.  She Will Rock bred and part owned by Yorkshire Park unfortunately suffered an injury following her last win at Bendigo and will have minor surgery to remove bone chips from her knee this week.  The filly had chalked up an impressive record with three wins and two seconds from her six starts to date.  She will be sidelined for three to six months. Our two year old filly Dreams are Bettor is in work at the John Caldow stables and continues to progress well while Alta Mach part owned by Yorkshire Park in the Ryan Hryhorec stables has had two starts this prep for two sixths.  We expect improvement from the Mach Three mare in the coming weeks.  Lutetia Midfrew has also returned to work under the care of Adrian Duggan in Hobart and we look forward to seeing the Sportswriter 4 year old back at the track soon. This year Yorkshire Park will present two fillies at the Australian pacing Gold Yearling sales in Melbourne on the 2nd February 2020.  The first is a Well Said filly out of Vickymurphy (Bettors Delight mare) a half sister to the recently retired mare Masterkova 3 wins & six placings from eleven starts with her best winning mile rate being 1.55.7 when she defeated Soho Burning Love at her first race start.  This filly is out of the very good performing Vicky Hanover family which left prolific winners in Same Old Macray, Dee En Ay Macray, Bomber Macray and Usanz. The second is a Sportswriter filly out of the very well bred mare Watch The Dream (Bettors Delight mare) who won on four occasions as a three year old.  She is out of the very good producing NZ mare Dreamy Atom NZ 2 Year old of the Year and has left 7 winners including Western Dream 14 wins $334,987 prize money, Dream Royale 22 wins $145,068, Tisa Dream 18 wins $160,596.  This is a terrific family and we look forward to presenting her at the 2020 APG sales. Yorkshire Park will also be syndicating a filly by Western Terror out of Jewel Bromac who unfortunately died while foaling this filly.  Stay tuned as we will update you on this syndication in the coming months. Good news out of Cranbourne Club 21 Syndicate who advised that our Village Jolt two year old leased to the syndicate has progressed really well and has just gone to the paddock for a short let up.  Trainer Scott Ewan is very pleased with her progression and expects her to be an early race track two year old. That’s about all for now. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19 Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update November 2019

News Update 20 November 2019 She Will Rock delivered an impressive performance at Bendigo last night winning by 6.0 metres in 1.57.9 well driven by Chris Svanosio.  The Yorkshire Park bred Rock N Roll Heaven filly looked very comfortable in settling back in the field before charging to the front in the straight and winning comfortably.   News Update 16 November 2019 Jilliby Babavska continued his good form by winning the Group 3 Lenin Trotters Free For All at Melton on Friday night in 1.59.9 driven by Jason Lee.   NEWS UPDATE: November 2019 She Will Rock continued on her good form with an impressive win at Yarra Valley last Thursday 7th November in 1.58.8 winning by 9.8 metres with a bit in hand.  The Rock N Roll Heaven filly continues to get better and hopefully better things in store for her down the track.  The Chris Svanosio stable is in hot form at the moment both with the trotters and pacers.  Alta Mach has had two runs back from a spell and performed ok without much luck in both appearances.  We will be looking for improved performance from the Mach Three mare in the coming weeks.  Hancocks Hero continued his good race form with a 15.8 metre win at Mildura on Tuesday night.  Well rated by Ellen Tormey the Yorkshire Park bred son of Alta Christiano never looked in danger of defeat after he found the front early.   Dreams are Bettor returned to the John Caldow stables last week and we are hoping the 2 YO daughter of Artspeak continues to improve on her first preparation.  She looked a treat after her four months in the paddock.

News Update September 2019

News Update 26 September 2019 Jilliby Babavska continued on his winning way with a strong win off the 30 metre handicap mark over the 2150 metres at Kilmore tonight.  Well driven by Glen Craven the son of Sundon made it win number nine from twenty starts and topped the $50,000 prize money mark.  Out of the Yorkshire Park owned La Tonneralla and sold at the APT yearling sale by Yorkshire Park the future looks really bright.  Well done to Paddy Lee for his persistence and patience with this bloke. NEWS UPDATE: September 2019 Congratulations to Ellen Tormey on the win of Yorkshire Park bred Hancocks Hero at Mildura on Tuesday night.  Confidently driven by Zac Phillips the son of Alta Christiano led all the way to win by 2.9 metres in 2.1.7.  He has been very consistent of late and thoroughly deserved his win. Great to see She Will Rock back at the trials with two impressive trial wins as she makes her way back to the race track.  The Rock N Roll Heaven filly certainly shows a bit of ability and we look forward to seeing her race track return on Monday 30 September at Maryborough. Yorkshire Park part owned mare Alta Mach is also due back at the trials shortly following a long lay off through injury.  All looks good at the moment for her racetrack return. Good to see Jilliby Babavska return to form with a great second at Melton on Saturday night in very smart time of 1.56.2 after leading the field up.  Beaten by the super horse Wobelee in what was a great race we expect that he will be back in the winners circle shortly. Not a lot happening on the breeding scene at the moment  but next month we will start to see our foals hitting the ground.  Ima Ritzi Lombo (Yankee Rock Star), La Tonneralla (Used to Me) & Our Narissa Franco (Tintin in America) are all due to foal in October. Great to see the Kilmore Cup field this year really stack up with plenty of talent.  Disappointing the meeting is on a Thursday night and a return to the Sunday day Kilmore Cup would be clearly better. Yorkshire Park still has our 2YO gelding by Sportswriter out of Lombo Socialite for sale.  He has just returned to the trainers for his second preparation.  He is well bred and related to some very nice horse being a grandson of the great Lombo Rapida.  Contact Dennis at Yorkshire Park for more details.

News Update August 2019

NEWS Update 28 August A terrific run by Miss Maia (Majestic Son x Sixty Plus) in the Breeders Crown Group 3 Silver Series final at Geelong, just going down by a half head in a driving finish.  Trained & driven by Matt Craven the Yorkshire Park bred filly was terrific in defeat after galloping early and giving away 20 metres at the start.  No doubt a win is not far away.   NEWS UPDATE: August 2019 Racing at times can be a tough game with its high & lows but none more on the low side with the career ending injury to one of Yorkshire Parks favourite horses in Artful Christian at Bendigo last week.  Bred by Yorkshire Park the son of Major In Art was originally leased to Peter & Chris Svanosio before they decided to purchase him outright.  The winner of 11 races and placed in a further 27 races from 87 starts winning almost $80,000, Banker as he was called suffered a severe tendon injury which required and operation to stitch the tendon back together.  The good news to date is that he is recovering well from the operation and will be recouperating under the guidance of Alistair McLean.  We all hope that Banker continues to improve and eventually enjoys his retirement in a nice paddock. On the racing scene both Magical & Miss Maia raced at Maryborough on Redwood day in two seperate divisions of the 2YO Trotting fillies Redwood consultation with both performing very well.  Miss Maia finished second in her race while Magical finished third.  While on Redwood day a big congratulations to the Maryborough Club on an outstanding day of racing and entertainment.  President Peter Egan & Manager Les Chapman have done a wonderful job and should be congratulated. Yorkshire Park bred and part owned filly She Will Rock is close to returning to the track and looking to continue on her winning way while Alta Mach part owned by Yorkshire Park is also on her way back from injury under the care of Amanda Turnbull.  Cannot wait to get these two back to the track. Our yearling filly Dreams Are Bettor has completed her second preparation and continues to impress.  A big thank you to Luke Bryant from Ravitalli Standardbreds who has been looking after recently following our normal trainer Graham Lyon not enjoying the best of health.  Lets hope Lyonsy is back on deck shortly and enjoying better health. Not much action on the breeding scene at the moment but no doubt in the next month things will start to get busy.  Masterkova will be served by American Ideal in the coming season and we will announce who our other mares will be going to in the next week or so. Looking forward to another month of exciting racing with our Yorkshire Park bred or owned horses.  Don’t forget if you are interested in joining us in a syndicate give me a call or drop me an email.

News Update July 2019

News Update: 26 July 2019 Terrific night tonight for Yorkshire Park with both Rocking Bugatti & Jilliby Babavska both greeting the judge at Ballarat.  Rocking Bugatti continues to improve and brought up back to back wins while Jilliby Babavska made it 5 wins from 7 starts this preparation. Great result for the owners and well done to Chris Svanosio and Paddy Lee on their training efforts. NEWS UPDATE: July 2019 Great news for Yorkshire Park with Rocking Bugatti scoring his first win at Shepparton on Tuesday night (16th) after a number of consistent placings.  A recent addition to Chris Svanosio’s stable Rocking Bugatti pulled clear to win by 1.1 metres after working around and sitting in the death seat.  Other results for Yorkshire Park for the month has been Magical’s second in the Group 3 Super Sires Stakes feature at Melton and good performances from Hancocks Hero & Lutetia Midfrew during the month.  Miss Maia made her race track debut this week with a fifth placing despite galloping twice during the run.  The Majestic Son filly is out of Sixty Plus and certainly shows some ability, hopefully improved manners will see her finishing much closer.  Littlebitof Terror went to the trials at Devonport on Monday and hopefully we will see her at the track shortly.  By Western Terror out of Vickymurphy the filly is a half sister to Masterkova. On the breeding scene we are starting to work through matings for the upcoming breeding season with our mares and once again we have enlisted the support of Anthony Mannix and his pedigree matching program.  Hopefully we will have all the decisions made in the coming weeks.  The three weanling fillies are all doing well despite the wet and cold conditions of late.  Two will be heading to the APG sales in 2020.  Lets hope for another really good week on the race track.

News Update June 2019

News Update 26 June: Jilliby Babvska makes it four from four this time in with an easy win at Terang on Wednesday winning by 18 metres with a bit in hand.  Well handled by Jason Lee he never looked in doubt over the 2180 metres in 2.3.1.  He is off to Ballarat on Wednesday 3 July to see if he can make it five from five.  Good luck to Paddy Lee and the team. News Update 13 June: Great day today for Yorkshire park with She Will Rock saluting at her first race start at Kilmore winning by 6 metres in 2.0.4.  The Yorkshire Park bred and part owned filly really acquitted herself well and never looked in danger of defeat.  Well done to Chris Svanosio and the team and a big congratulations to a fantastic group of owners.  Special congratulations to Brendan McKenzie as She Will Rock is his first horse. One starter one win now that’s a good record. The day could have been a lot better for Yorkshire Park when Magical was beaten at Maryborough by a half head after blowing the start and giving them a big start.  The half sister to Jilliby Babavska certainly has her fair share of ability but will need to improve her manners.  She is in good hands with Brent Lilley and a bright future beckons for her.  News Update 11 June: Jilliby Babavska continued on his winning way at Melton tonight with an impressive 12.8 metre win in 1.57.6 driven by Jason Lee.  The Paddy Lee trained horse made it three from three this time in and was ultra impressive.  Sold through the APT Sale by Yorkshire Park the son of Sundon continues to impress with his brilliant speed.  Yorkshire Park’s Dennis Bice said “This bloke is a serious racehorse and hopefully he remains sound so we can see just how good he could be”.  A big congrats to Paddy Lee and the team for their patience and persistence with him”. News Update 9 June: Lutetia Midfrew broke through for her maiden victory on Sunday night with an impressive 5.5 metre win at Launceston in 1.58.8 driven by Gareth Rattray.  Congratulations to Adrian Duggan for a top training performance as the Sportswriter filly had been building to the win. News Update: Lots of activity for Yorkshire Park over the last month both from the breeding and racing side and plenty of good performances on the race track. The very exciting news is the return to Yorkshire Park of Masterkova for the upcoming breeding season.  Masterkova was bred by Yorkshire Park and sold through the APG Yearling sales in Melbourne back in 2014 to Justin Baker and the Big Wookie Syndicate.  She was trained by Emma Stewart and put together a promising racing career of 11 starts for 3 wins, 3 seconds & 3 thirds with her best winning mile rate of 1.55.7.  Unfortunately she sustained an injury to her hock and was retired.  A big thank you to Justin Baker and Emma Stewart in allowing Yorkshire Park to purchase the promising filly back.  She will arrive at Yorkshire Park next week and we will plan out  breeding option for her.  The mare is by the great Falcon Seelster out of Vickymurphy (Bettors Delight) so plenty of option to consider. During May our three weanling fillies all returned to Yorkshire Park and spent a bit of time with further education and getting used to their new surroundings. Really like the Well Said filly but very happy with all of them. On the racing scene Jilliby Babavska continues to take all before him with two impressive wins on the comeback trail, Artful Christian continues to be a model of consistency and the exciting news is She Will Rock (Rock N Roll Heaven – My Little Black Dress) makes her race track debut on Thursday at Kilmore under the guidance of Chris Svanosio following an impressive trial win at Bendigo last Monday.   Stylish Icon continued her model of consistency with a win at Globe Derby on Monday.  Lutetia Midfrew is bursting to break through in Tassie following a really good second followed up with a luckless third placing last week.  She gets her chance this coming Sunday at Launceston where she has draw the pole.  Hoping for a bit of luck for Adrian Duggan and the team.  Lets hope for another really good week on the race track.

News Update May 2019

News Update 30 May Fantastic to see the return of Jilliby Babvska at Maryborough today after 18 months off the scene.  The talented trotter put them to the sword today to win impressively by 5.3 metres untouched in 2.1.5.  Congratulations to Paddy Lee on his patience and work to get this bloke back to the track,  Big tick for Paddy & driver Glen Craven. News Update: A good win for the Yorkshire Park bred Glenavril King on the 15 May at Terang winning by half head in 1.57.8.  Congratulations to Barry & Aaron Dunn on the Courage Under Fire gelding chalking up his first win at start 4.   News: News: News: Lots to report on this month with a number of Yorkshire Park bred horses making their race track debuts and the return to the trials of another, promising trotter in Jilliby Babavska. This month we see the Yorkshire Park bred Angus Hall trotting filly Magical compete in Saturday nights Group 1 Vic Bred Home Grown Classic at Tabcorp Park Melton.  To date she has shown plenty of ability although her manners have let her down a little resulting in her drawing the outside of the second row.   She will need some luck from there but we wish the owners and Brent Lilley all the best for the race.  She will be driven by Chris Alford who may bring up his 100th Group 1 win if she salutes. Glenavril King (Courage Under Fire – Lombo Socialite) made his race track debut last month and has been very competitive with two 5th placings and a close second.  Tonight at Terang he gets his chance to break through in a 3YO drawing barrier 5 and to be driven by Aaron Dunn.  Yorkshire Park owned Lutetia Midfrew has been getting closer to the place getters with two very good runs recently in Tasmania.   Great to see Jilliby Babavska back at the trial this week after a long break due to injury.  The 3YO Breeders Crown runner up sat back in the trial and worked home nicely to finish second without driver Glen Craven really asking for too much.  Well done to Paddy Lee for his patience and commitment to getting him back to the track. Also at the rial recently was Hancocks Hero (3rd) and She Will Rock who qualified at her first go at the trials.  Hopefully we will see both of these horses at the races shortly. On the breeding scene our three weanlings will return home on Sunday to Yorkshire Park and commence a bit more education.  Looking forward to having them back home. Good reports out of Cranbourne on our yearling filly by Village Jolt who has been leased to Club 21 group.  She seems to have settled in well to her new surrounds and will hopefully continue to improve.  She is in the care of former NZ trainer Dylan Marshall at the Cranbourne training complex. Two of Yorkshire Parks other yearlings (Sportswriter colt) & (Artspeak filly) have been broken in by Luke Bryant and moved to Kyabram under the care of Graham Lyon for a short stint.  Both have done very well and we look forward to seeing how they fair in the coming months. Don’t forget if you want to join Yorkshire Park in the thrill of racing just give me a call. That’s about all for now.

News Update March 2019

News Update 27 March: It is always good to see one of your foals making their race track debut and tonight at Bendigo (27/3) Magical starts her racing career.  Sold by Yorkshire Park at the 2018 APTS sale in Melbourne the filly by Angus Hall out of La Tonneralla gets her opportunity.  Magical is trained by Brent Lilley and will be driven tonight by Chris Alford.  No surprise to see Brent Lilley purchase the half brother to Magical by Love You at this years APTS sale from Yorkshire Park.  We wish the connections and the Brent Lilley stable all the very best for tonight.     News Update 11 March: A really good result for Yorkshire Park on Sunday with our Love You colt out of La Tonneralla sold for $31,000 at the Australian Premier Trotting sale to the Brent Lilley stable who also purchased our filly out of the same mare at last years trotting sale.  Great to see him go to a really good stable and I’m sure he will do a good job for the new owners.  The two year old named Magical qualified at Kilmore Trials last Tuesday so we will be looking forward to seeing her at the track shortly. News: News: News: Plenty happening in the last month or so for Yorkshire Park with APG Melbourne Yearling sales wrapping up, a trip to New Zealand for the New Zealand Standardbred Yearling sales in Christchurch and then back in time for the Sydney APG Yearling sales last Sunday 3 March. After finishing up with the Melbourne sales I headed over the ditch to Christchurch to witness what was a truly amazing sale with records being broken everywhere.  A big congratulations to NZ Bloodstock for the work they put into the sales which undoubtably a huge success.  No joy for Yorkshire Park in the purchasing stakes but it was fantastic to catch up with our NZ trainer in John Hay & his partner Ineka Lee and spend some serious time looking at many yearlings both trotters and pacers.  Finished off the week with a trip to Addington on the Friday night to witness some quality racing then back home on the Saturday. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the Sydney APG sale but did spend the afternoon in front of the computer watching it on live streaming. A big thank you to John Coffey for assisting us in purchasing Lot 302 a filly by Artspeak out of a Bettors Delight mare Delightfullybettor, a winner of 8 races in her own right.  Really pleased to pick this filly up and we look forward to getting her back to Yorkshire Park in the coming days. On the breeding scene the last of our mares Vickymurphy has been confirmed in foal to Sunshine Beach which is very pleasing.  It has been a long breeding season with three fillies arriving and five mares back in foal. Racing wise Lutetia Midfrew headed to the Adrian Duggan stable in Hobart after disappointing at her three starts back from a spell.  Hopefully a change of scenery will be good for the Sportswriter filly and we wish Adrian all the best with her.  Earlier last year we syndicated our filly by Rock N Roll Heaven out of My Little Black Dress and following a really pleasing first preparation which did see her at the work outs, she returned home for a spell.  Pleased to say she has done really well at home and on Sunday headed back to the stable of Chris Svanosio.   Alta Mach is still out for a spell and will be back soon at the Amanda Turnbull stable.  Really looking forward to the Mach Three mare being back in work in the coming month or so. Yorkshire Park is also pleased to announce that our yearling filly by Village Jolt out of Ima Ritzi Lombo will head to the newly formed Club 21 syndicate on lease run by the Cranbourne Harness Racing Club.   This is an exciting venture and we wish Club 21 all the best with our filly.  Our Sportswriter colt out of Lombo Socialite is at the breakers at the moment and this week will be in the cart for the first time.  He is a lovely colt and we look forward to seeing the work Luke Bryant from Ravitalli Standardbreds has been able to do with our boy Jake.  We will most likely advertise this boy for sale in the coming weeks. On Sunday we head to the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale at Oaklands Junction with our Love You yearling colt out of La Tonneralla being the opening Lot in the sale.  He is a great colt and it is pleasing to see that his half sister sold in last years sale by Angus Hall has been named “Magical” and heads to the trials on Tuesday (5th) a Kilmore for Brent Lilley.  Also caught up with Paddy Lee recently who let us know that Jilliby Babavska runner up in the 2017 3YO Breeders Crown is on his way back from a long break due to injury.  He is a super talented horse and we wish Paddy all the best in getting him back to the track.  He also is a half brother to the Love You yearling heading to the sales on Sunday. It has been an exciting time in harness racing with quality feature races in recent times and a boost in the Yearling sales results all providing for what should be an exciting future.

News Update February 2019

News: News: News: The beginning of February is a busy time with the APG Yearling sales kicking off at Oaklands Junction and what a weekend it was. The newly renovated sales complex was fantastic and certainly helped to create and exciting atmosphere as 200 + yearlings went through the sales. This year Yorkshire Park was represented by Lot No 146 a colt by Somebeachsomewhere out of Vickymurphy who was knocked down to Michael Stanley for $22,000.  We were really pleased with the way he presented and a big thanks must go to Dean & Blanche Poole and the team for the way in which they prepared the colt.  Not only was it a day to sell some of the finest yearlings in Australia but a great chance to catch up with a number of past purchasers of Yorkshire Park stock.  It was great to see Peter Tuson who purchased last years filly by Western Terror out of Vickymurphy and to get an update on how she is progressing and I’m pleased to say she is coming along well.  Terrific also to catch up with Peter & Rachelle from NZ Standardbred Bloodstock and I look forward to being in Christchurch NZ for the NZ yearling sales in a fortnight.  And whilst on last years yearlings the recently syndicated Rock N Roll Heaven filly out of My Little Black Dress NZ has been named “She Will Rock” and already been to the work outs. Great to see the Yorkshire Park bred Go Home Jo greet the judge on Sunday (3/2/19) in WA with a comprehensive 11 metre win.  She has been a model of consistency for her new owners and I’m sure many more wins are in store for the Roll With Joe mare. Lutetia Midfrew has had two starts back since resuming and both have been a little disappointing.  A change of gear will hopefully make a difference as she will head to Melton on Monday 11th for her next start. Our Village Jolt filly (Tess) returned home from the breakers for a six week spell and I’m really pleased and quite excited about her prospects.  Our Sportswriter yearling colt (Jake) headed off the breakers today and our entry in this years Australian Premier Trotting Sale, a colt by Love You out of La Tonneralla headed to the preparers for the sale on the 3rd March. Not all great news unfortunately as we lost our Broodmare Jewel Bromac recently to illness and all our efforts now are on ensuring her recently born foal, a filly by Western Terror, is well cared for and looked after.  A big thanks to all the team at Northern Rivers Veterinary Clinic for their efforts with the mare and now their focus on ensuring the foal is ok. Since we last updated our broodmare news Watch The Dream has been confirmed in foal to Art Major and Vickymurphy has a 15 day positive test to Sunshine Beach.  That will give us five mares in foal for the coming year. A big congratulations to HRV on the last month of Harness Racing with the Interdominion, Victoria Derby, Great Southern Star and on Saturday night the Hunter Cup.  And boy what a race it was!  Tiger Tara was awesome in demolishing a really good field in track record time and for those who had the privilege of seeing the Tiger in action it will be one to remember.  What a season for the Tiger with wins in the Interdominion, Victoria Cup, Hunter Cup and a very unlucky second in the New Zealand Cup plus a close second in the Cranbourne Cup.  Super horse and well done to Kevin Pizzuto and Todd McCarthy for the way in which they have handled the horse. That’s about all for now. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19 Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update January 2019

News Update 24 January: Lutetia Midfrew makes her return to the race track on Monday night at Melton drawing barrier 5 over 1720 metre trip.  Her trial form has been good and we hope that she can make an impression on Monday night. News, News, News: After a short break and a fantastic Xmas and New Year we are back with the Yorkshire Park monthly update for January. Lots happening but we should start on the breeding scene with Jewel Bromac delivering a filly on the 21st December by Western Terror which rounds out this years foaling.  Three mares foaled for three fillies by Well Said, Sportswriter and Western Terror.  All mares and foals are doing well and we look forward to what the future holds for them. Good news also with Our Narissa Franco confirmed in foal to Tintin In America, Ima Ritzi Lombo in foal to Yankee Rockstar and La Tonneralla in foal to Used To Me via embryo transfer into another mare.  Watch The Dream has a 30 day positive to Art Major and we will know this week if we have a positive for Vickymurphy hopefully in foal to Sunshine Beach. On the racing scene Lutetia Midfrew returned to the trials last week at Melton with a nice 2nd and will follow up with another trial this Tuesday (15th) at Melton again.  Hopefully she will head to the races following this trial.   Alta Mach has gone to the paddock for a spell after a mixed return to the racetrack following injury.  She just didn’t quite come back as we had hoped so a decision was made to send her to the paddock for three months.  Our Village Jolt yearling filly (Tess) has been to the breakers and spent another fortnight with Graham Lyon at Kyabram and I’m extremely pleased with the way she has progressed.  She returned to Yorkshire Park today for a six week let up before heading back into training.  Recently we syndicated our Rock N Roll Heaven two year old and retained 20% in the filly who is being trained by Chris Svanosio.  She headed to the work outs at Bendigo this morning and acquitted herself well in the work out.  We are very happy with her progression to date and the syndicate is in the process of naming her before she heads to the trials. Great to see one of our early horses bred by Yorkshire Park win at Scottsdale on Friday.  Aitutaki won convincingly by 13 metres and made it win number six for the Ponder gelding.  A big well done to all involved.  Go Home Jo (Roll With Joe x Ima Ritzi Lombo) has been terrific recently and continues to run placings in good fields.  I think a win is just around the corner for the mare.  Artful Christian has returned from a spell and continues to perform well.  With a little luck a win is just around the corner for this bloke. The APG Melbourne yearling sales are fast approaching and on Friday our Somebeachsomewhere colt out of Vickymurphy Lot 146 had his photos and video filmed.  Keep an eye out for this bloke at the sales as he is a really nice type and we hope that he sells well.  Yearling sale time is very exciting and we look forward to a positive sale with lots of potential owners attending. Fantastic to attend the Bendigo Pacing Cup meeting on Saturday 5 January with the two feature events providing a terrific spectacle.  The Aldebaran Park Maori Mile Group One provided another major win for Tornado Valley the reigning Interdominion Champion in a quick time of 1.54.1 just outside the track record.  His blistering speed allowed him to go to the lead from the outside gate before holding off Save Our Pennys in a driving finish.  Congratulations to Kate & Andy Gath on a fine driving and training performance and we look forward to see if Tornado Valley heads overseas in the near future to take on the European or North American horses. San Carlo provided a tough performance to win the Bendigo Pacing Cup Group 2 in track record time of 1.55.4 in a three way finish beating Let It Ride and Stroke Of Luck in a thrilling cup.  Its a great time of the year with the Country Cups featuring many of the very good horses with top quality racing.  This Saturday night we will head to the Ballarat Cup and look forward to an exciting night of racing with the Group One Cup and Victoria Derby Heats.  That’s about it for now but we certainly look forward to the coming weeks with great enthusiasm.

News Update November 2018

News Update: 25/11 – Great news with Yorkshire Park mare Watch The Dream delivering a lovely Sportswriter filly on Friday morning, both mare & foal doing well. The winners keep on coming with Yorkshire Park filly sold at APG yearling sale All Done Up saluting at Newcastle for win number 8 and upwards of $65K in prizemoney.  Yorkshire Parks yearling filly by Village Jolt out of Ima Ritzi Lombo headed off to Ravitalli Standardbreds today under the care of Luke Bryant to be broken in.  A half sister to Go Home Jo & Hancocks Hero, both winners in the last month, Tess will then head to the Graham Lyon stable for a couple of weeks.  Lets hope she performs like her brother & sister.  Yorkshire Park will syndicate the filly when she has completed her first preparation. 19/11 – Hancocks Hero (Alta Christiano – Ima Ritzi Lombo) produced a fine display to win the 3YO race on Gunbower Cup day.  Bred by Yorkshire Park the consistent gelding worked to the lead early and won in comfortable fashion by 3.2 metres driven by his trainer Ellen Tormey.  Congratulations to the owners who I believe this is their first horse in harness racing. News, News, News: Welcome back to the latest news from Yorkshire Park following a short break during the month of October.  As usual there is a fair bit going on now that we are right in the middle of breeding season. The breeding season didn’t start of well with our mare Sixty Plus slipping her Love You foal six weeks out from her due date.  While this is really disappointing to lose such a valuable foal it just shows you how things can change quickly in the breeding game.  Fortunately the mare is ok and will head back to stud this year to get in foal to Used To Me.  On a brighter note Vickymurphy did produce a lovely filly foal by Well Said on the 5th November and both mum and the foal are doing well.  Watch The Dream is due to foal any day now to Sportswriter so we eagerly wait to see what little surprise we get with her.  I’m also pleased to say we have purchased Our Narissa Franco by Live or Die and closely related the very good performers in Franco Nelson (23 wins), Franco Noriega (11 wins) & Franco Nereus (7 wins).  She will be served by TinTin In Amercia this coming season. On the racing scene our three year old Lutetia Midfrew has been back in work for about a month under the care of John Caldow.  She did extremely well while spelling and we are hopeful we could have a good season at the track with her.  Alta Mach returned from her injury let up but has been disappointing in her three runs back.  Something isn’t quite right with her and she is off to Goulburn Valley Medical Clinic to get her checked out.  Our Rock N Roll Heaven two year old  filly is back for her first preparation under the guidance of Chris Svanosio and she is progressing well. Fantastic to see the Yorkshire Park bred mares Stylish Icon & Go Home Jo winning over the past couple of weeks and the formerly owned mare Whosashadylady greeting the judge at Ararat in her first start for the new owners.  It is always pleasing to see our progeny winning for their owners. Really having withdrawal symptoms not being in New Zealand this week for the New Zealand Trotting Cup carnival.  This time last year I was totally caught up in the atmosphere of the New Zealand Cup which is a week like no other in harness racing.  Next year we are definitely off to New Zealand!! Not long now before the first of the Inter Dominion heats to be run at Ballarat on the 4th December.  Cant wait to get to Ballart to see the first round of heats kick off.  Really intriguing series with a number of the very best horses missing out through injury or been sold.   The Victorian Country Cups carnivals have commenced with San Carlo being the absolute stand out winning the Cranbourne Cup in a gutsy effort then backing up to take out the Yarra Valley Cup.  He will make his presence felt in the Interdominion this year and has been ultra impressive so far.   A big congratulations to Kerry Manning on winning the St .Arnaud Cup on Sunday with Motu Meteor in impressive style.  That makes it St. Arnaud Cup number five for the worlds most winningness driver.  On the St. Arnaud Cup on the weekend a big congratulations to the club on the way they presented their cup meeting and the acknowledgement paid in remembering our soldiers who fought in the First World War to allow us to live the way we do today.  A special touch was the playing of the “Last Post” and the Pacing Cup arriving by Light Horseman, a real fitting touch. That’s about all for now. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19 Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update September, 2018.

News, News, News: The last month has been a little quieter for Yorkshire Park on the racing scene with Lutetia Midfrew in the paddock for three months, Whosashadylady being sold and heading to the Tim O’Brien stable and the recently syndicated Rock N Roll Heaven 2YO filly still a month away from heading back in to training. On the breeding scene we will have to wait until later in October before the first of our foals arrive so we are anxiously awaiting a busy month in November with more foals on the way.  We have now finalised our breeding for this year and we will be sending six mares back to stud, five pacers and one trotter. Last Sunday we joined Harness Breeders Victoria and Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria on a combined stud tour which seen as spend time at Swettenham Thoroughbred Stud and then of to Alabar Harness Stud.  It was a fantastic day with a lovely lunch at a Winery in between both studs.  A big thank you to Adam Sangster at Swettenham and his staff and to Alan Galloway at Alabar and his team for providing their time to show us around and how operationally the studs both work and also to parade their stallions on the day.  It was a fantastic day with both codes working well together to showcase the breeding scene.  Highly recommend the day if it happens next season. Great to see another Yorkshire Park horse being named and getting ready for the racetrack from our 2017 APG Sales contingent.  Glenauril King by Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite was sold at the 2017 sales to the Barry Dunn stables so we will keep a close eye on him.  From the six horses sold in the 2017 sales five have been named and four already at the race track. That’s about all for now. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19 Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update August, 2018.

  News, News, News: Plenty happening over the last month both on the racing scene and preparation for the breeding season along with weanlings (about to be yearlings) getting a bit more education. On the racing scene Lutetia Midfrew has been sent to the paddock for a 3 month spell following her three starts to date.  The Sportswriter filly performed below her best at her last start and after a long preparation and the trip from New Zealand it was decided that a spell would be in her best interests.  Artful Christian continues on his consistent run of performances and a good third at Shepparton the other night added to his building prize money.  On the back of that Artful Christian has been sold to Peter Svanosio and will continue on in the Chris Svanosio stable.  He has been a terrific horse and we wish Peter all the best, hopefully many more wins to come.  Whosashadylady will run at Hobart on Friday 17th August and following that a decision will be made as to whether she is retired or continues.  She has been disappointing since her recent let up and maybe the breeding barn may be her next step.  Alta Mach is back in work with Amanda Turnbull at Bathurst and we really look forward to having her back at the track. Great to see four of our six horses presented and sold at the APG Yearling sales in 2017 make the races during this season.  The latest of them will be Rocking Bugatti (Petrock x My Little Black Dress) trained by Kerryn Manning making his debut on Tuesday 21st August at Terang.  Jilliby Macarena acquitted himself well recently with win in the heat and a third placing in the Group 2 Final of the APG Autumn yearling sales series.  Really looking forward to the other two colts making their race track debut in the coming season. Yorkshire Park will present a colt by Somebeachsomewhere out of Vicky Hanover at the 2019 APG Sales in February and a colt by Love You out of La Tonneralla at the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale in April.  We have sold two of our weanlings this year and still have a lovely Sportswriter colt and a Village Jolt filly that we will look at putting on the market at a later date. Yorkshire Park is gearing up for the fast approaching breeding season with four mares to foal down.  Hopefully we will see foals safely on the ground by Sportswriter, Well Said, Western Terror and Love You.  Still a little bit of work to be done on what mares to take to what stallions this year but at this stage we will definitely have Watch The Dream to Art Major, Vickymurphy to Sunshine Beach, Jewel Bromac to Betting Line and Ima Ritzi Lombo to Yankee Rockstar. That’s about all for now. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19 Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update July, 2018.

  News, News, News: Plenty happening over the last few weeks with Lutetia Midfrew qualifying at Melton last week under the guidance of John Caldow in a pleasing trial.  The Sportswriter 2 y o filly will most likely be heading to Cranbourne on the 23rd July to make her race track debut.   Artful Christian just can’t break through for his MO win but he has been performing well and no doubt he will get his chance in the near future.  Whosashadylady has been disappointing in her three runs back from a short let up and a gear change will hopefully make a difference to her in the next week or so.  Alta Mach is due back in work this week and we look forward to the Mach Three mare continuing on her good form under the guidance of Amanda Turnbull in this preparation. On the breeding scene plenty of work going into what mares will be going to what stallions but I can say at this stage the Watch The Dream will go to Art Major, Vickymurphy to Sunshine Beach and Ima Ritzi Lombo to Yankee Rockstar.  Still working on a number of the other mares including trotting mares La Tonneralla & Sixty Plus. A big congratulations to Marg & Jason Lee on the win of Jilliby Macarena who saluted in a heat of the APG Autumn sales race series in 1.59.5 at Geelong winning by 8 metres.   Presented at the 2017 APG Autumn sales by Yorkshire Park, Axle as we called him was purchased for $6,000 which is a bargain buy now he will contest the $50,000 Group 2 Final the Saturday 28th July.  Go Axle! That’s about it for now but we will provide further updates during the month.

News Update June, 2018.

News Update: 17th June: Great to see Stylish Icon greet the judge today (17/6) at Horsham for trainer Alan Cronin and Greg Moy and his owners.  The For A Reason filly has been knocking on the door of late and the win today is certainly well deserved. 15th June: Yorkshire park is pleased to announce that Lutetia Midfrew will leave New Zealand for the John Caldow stables on Sunday.  The Sportswriter 2 Year old will look to qualify soon after arriving after a couple of impressive work outs under the care of John Hay at Ashburton.  Unfortunately weather conditions and racing opportunities have meant that it is in our best interests to bring her to Victoria. News, News, News: After enjoying a months break in Hawaii it is a bit of a shock to return home to the colder and wetter weather.  I guess we have been spoilt but on the flip side it’s good to be back and engaging back with the horses and the farm. On the racing scene while we were away it was good news with Artful Christian greeting the judge at Bendigo on the 30th May, well handled by junior reinswoman Michelle Phillips in 1.57.1 to bring up his 11th career win.  He has been a model of consistency and really never runs a bad race.  Lutetia Midfrew in New Zealand has been back to the work outs and won convincingly under the guidance of John Hay and will now look to qualify at the trials in the coming weeks.  The Sportswriter filly has continued to improve and hopefully we will be at the races shortly.  We will need to make a decision as to whether we bring her back to Australia or leave her in NZ which will be dependant on racing opportunities.  Whosashadylady makes her race track return in Hobart this coming Friday night after a short let up and all reports are that she has done well since her break.  The Bettors Delight mare has been a model of consistency but is finding it hard to break through for her second career win.  Maybe Friday night might be it.  Really pleased to see Stylish Icon performing well for trainer Alan Cronin with a number of placings recently.  Hopefully the For A Reason mare can greet the judge shortly as she really does deserve to win again following some terrific efforts of late. Some more good news while we where away from the Paddy Lee stable is that the Yorkshire Park bred trotter Jilliby Babavska is on his way back and hopefully he can stay sound and continue the terrific form from last season when he finished second in the 3YO Breeders Crown final.  Fingers crossed all goes well.   Alta Mach continues to enjoy a couple of months in the paddock and is showing no signs of the injury she suffered at her last race start.  Fingers crossed that all will be good when she returns. The NZ All Aged Sales at Auckland took place while we were away and unfortunately we were the losing bidder on a weanling filly by Sweet Lou out of Bizzie Girl a half sister to the talented Eliza Dushka.  I really liked her so it will be interesting to see how she goes in the future.  A big congratulations to trainer Chris Svanosio and the McLean family with their win in the VHRC Holmfield 3YO Trotters Group 2 with Anywhere Hugo coming from almost last to win in impressive fashion.  Too top it off Chris made it a quinella with Kyvalley Finn finishing second.  Well done to all. That’s about it for now but we will provide further updates during the month.

News Update April, 2018.

Update 22nd April. Alta Mach made it two wins from two Australian starts when she smashed the field to win by 28.7 metres in 1.59.3 at Junee driven by trainer Amanda Turnbull on Sunday.  Blasting to the lead from gate five it was never in doubt as she increased her lead as the race went on.  An impressive performance by the Mach Three 4YO mare. Update 14th April. Alta Mach delivered at her first Aussie start with a 10.8 metre win at Junee on Saturday driven by Nathan Turnbull.  Drawing the outside of the second row Turnbull made his move early to take over the running with two laps to go and won in impressive fashion.  Alta Mach will now head to the final at Junee on Sunday for her next race.   Update 9th April. Yorkshire Park is pleased to announce that we have taken an interest in the Mach Three 4YO Alta Mach who trialled at Bathurst tonight.  The mare has had six starts in NZ for 2 seconds, 1 third and a fourth was impressive enough at Bathurst trials tonight winning by 4.5 metre in 1.59.6 driven by Amanda Turnbull.  Alta Mach joined the Amanda Turnbull stable recently after being purchased out of NZ.  Alta Mach is out of the good broodmare Alta Vista who has produced Five Star Anvil 33 wins $779K, Lets Elope 25 wins $549K and Down Under Stride 13 wins to date and $95K in prize money. News, News, News: Good news for Yorkshire Park today with Artful Christian greeting the judge at Mildura tonight in 1.58.4 winning by 11.3 metres to register career win number ten and go past the $50k prize money mark.  He has been a terrific horse over the journey to date and will no doubt have a few more wins left in him yet.  Congratulations to Chris & Peter Svanosio who have done a wonderful job with him during his racing career.  Not bad for a horse that went to the APG sales and couldn’t get any interest in him at all.  That’s the great uncertainty, sometimes they turn up from all avenues. The Yorkshire Park owned Whosashadylady continues to be a model of consistency in Tasmania without breaking through being placed at five of her last six starts.  Maybe a win is just around the corner for the Bettors Delight mare as she heads to Devonport Friday night with trainer Adrian Duggan.  Both our two year olds in NZ are getting close to returning to the trials under the care of John Hay.  Lutetia Midfrew is slightly ahead in her preparation over Rosa Parks so by the end of the month we will have a good indication as to how they are progressing. Last month we reported that Yorkshire Park had syndicated the Rock N Roll Heaven filly out of My Little Black Dress and she has now headed to the care of Paul Campbell to be broken in.  Paul is very pleased with her progress and she will be in the cart at some stage this week.  So far so good for the new owners. The weaning process has begun for our foals this year along with some education before returning back to Yorkshire Park.  Thanks to Northern Rivers Equine and Josh for their time and patience with the babies. Plenty of work going on at Yorkshire Park with hedges being trimmed, pastures to be sown down and some further fencing and shelters to be built.  The investment into the property mounts up but it is well worth the time, money and effort to ensure we provide the best possible facilities. That’s about it for now but we will provide further updates during the month.

News Update March, 2018.

Update 29th March: Really pleased to see one of our APG Sale Graduates from 2017 in Jilliby Macarena (Auckland Reactor – Jewel Bromac) finish 3rd in his first race start at Maryborough today.  He is the second of our 2017 APG Graduates to make their race track debut with Sporting Icon (Sportswriter – Rock Me Gently) already gracing the race track on two occasions for a 6th & 5th .   Update 19th March: Great to see Stylish Icon winning at Globe Derby today for trainer Alan Cronin and part owner Greg Moy.  The Yorkshire Park bred For A Reason filly did all the work early before taking the lead and holding off all challengers in a time of 2.0.7.  Really pleased to see our horses do well for their new owners and I’m sure that they will get a lot more fun out of her. UPDATE 12th March: Sundays Australasian Premier Trotting Sale breathed new life into harness racing with a very successful sale on the back of an excellent catalogue of yearlings.  A big congratulations to all vendors and preparers who did a fantastic job in meeting the market and preparing the yearlings in such a fine manner.  The sale grossed over $1M in sales from the 60 yearlings presented, clearance rate above 83% and the average sale price was just over the $20K mark well up on last year. Yorkshire Park’s two fillies both sold above the reserve price and are heading to very good racing stables.  The Angus Hall x La Tonneralla filly will head to the Brent Lilley stables while the Majestic Son x Sixty Plus filly will head to the stables of Matt Craven.  Yorkshire Park wishes the new owners of the fillies all the very best and hopefully successful racing careers.   News, News, News: This Sunday (11th March) Yorkshire Park will be represented by two fillies at the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale at Melton.  The first is by Angus Hall, a half sister to the 2017 3YO Breeders Crown runner up Jilliby Babavska while the second is out of a full sister to the 2017 NZ Dominion Handicap winner in Amaretto Sun by Majestic Son.   Both fillies have done particularly well and a big thank you to all the team at Rhiannon Park who have done such a great job in preparing them for the sale. On the racing front we see the first of our 2017 sales representatives head to the races in Sporting Icon (Sportswriter x Rock Me Gently) who makes his debut at Geelong on Friday night.  Good luck to the Pace family who purchased the colt at the APG Sales from Yorkshire Park. Whosashadylady has been a model of consistency in Tasmania recently with her last four starts producing 4,3,3,2 form line.  This Sunday she heads to Launceston to compete in the Lady Drivers series and will be handled by Kristy Grant.  Good luck to the Duggan team in Tasmania who have done a terrific job with the Yorkshire Park mare. News from NZ is that both Yorkshire Park two year olds are back in work and hopefully we will see them at the trials this time in.  Lutetia Midfrew is about three weeks in advance of Rosa Parks in their preparation and we watch with interest their progression.  The John Hay stables has been in terrific form of late and hopefully some of that winner streak will rub off on the two fillies. Artful Christian will most likely head to Bendigo on Tuesday 14th March following on from his excellent 3rd at Bendigo in 1.53.9 beaten four metres.  I’m sure if he performs up to that effort a win is just around the corner. I’m pleased to report that our Rock N Roll Heaven yearling filly passed in at the APG Melbourne sales has now been fully syndicated and will head to the breakers this weekend.  The new group of owners have decided that the filly will head to the Chris Svanosio stables later in the year to commence her racing preparation. Saturday night at Melton is the big Breed for Speed race night for the trotters and more importantly is the fund raiser for the Womens Cancer Foundation.  Congratulations to Duncan McPherson and HRV for what will be a terrific night.  Yorkshire Park will be there to contribute to what should be another great night, hopefully we raise lots of funds for research into Ovarian Cancer. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19.   That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update February, 2018.

News, News, News: What a start to February with the excitement of the APG Yearling Sales in Melbourne and the Summer of Glory Carnival which produced some of the very best harness racing seen for some time. Let’s start with the Summer of Glory Carnival and a big crowd turned out to see a dominant display by the champion pacer Lazarus in the A G Hunter Cup which was nothing short of amazing.   I had the pleasure of seeing him demolish a good field in the NZ Cup at Addington in November and his run in the Hunter Cup just confirmed that he is the second best horse I’ve seen behind Popular Alm, although he is closing the gap quickly.  The Victoria Derby produced a boilover with the Queensland pacer Colt Thirty One storming home to get the chocolates while the performance of Sparkling Success in the Great Southern Star was a nothing short of brilliant and a great story to go with it.  If you didn’t get excited about harness racing over the three week period then you would be hard to please.  A big well done to the HRV Marketing team as well, a terrific job in promoting and ensuring the success of the carnival. The APG sales was a tough result for Yorkshire Park with the Western Terror filly selling for $15,000 and our Rock N Roll Heaven filly not getting close to the reserve.  We will now look to syndicate the filly and race her  in partnership with friends and family.  We will have some shares available so if you are interested drop us a line at Yorkshire Park.  The Australian Premier Trotting Sale will be held at Melton on Sunday 11th March and Yorkshire Park will be represented by two fillies by Angus Hall and Majestic Son.  Lets hope for a better outcome with both these well bred fillies. On the racing scene Pearlescent greeted the judge for her second career win at Mildura winning impressively by 11 metres in 2.0.4.  Following on from that effort we can report that the mare has since been sold and will transfer to her new owners and trainer in the coming weeks.  Artful Christian performed well in the heat and final of the Group 3 $30,000 Rising Star series and will head to Bendigo in a slightly lower class on Wednesday night – can he make it win number 10?   Whosashadylady just got nailed on the line at Devonport but gets her chance to atone when she lines up at Carrick on Saturday from the coveted pole position.  In NZ our 2 Y O filly Lutetia Midfrew has resumed her campaign while Rosa Parks will spend a little bit longer in the paddock following a virus which stopped her preparation. Over the last month or so our mares and foals have returned to Yorkshire Park and the enjoyment of spending time around the foals is terrific.  So they now all have stable names which is always a interesting process.  Let’s see what you think. Sportswriter x Lombo Socialite Colt – Stable name is Jake. Somebeachsomewhere x Vickymurphy Colt – Stable name is Buster. Love You x La Tonneralla Colt – Stable name is – Rusty. Alta Christiano x Jewel Bromac Colt – Stable name is Bob. Village Jolt x Ima Ritzi Lombo Filly – Stable name is Tess. Heston Blue Chip x My Little Black Dress – Stable name is Demi. Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update January 2018

News Update: It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of NZ Breeding legend Bob McArdle today.  A terrific friend and mentor for Yorkshire Park usually involving long chats and coffee with a man whose knowledge of our breeding industry cannot be surpassed.  My trips to New Zealand always involved a guided tour around Christchurch and catch ups with various trainers and breeders at their properties.  Bob was a massive player in the breeding industry with the development of Nevele R Stud and in later times Bromac Lodge.  His passion for the industry was immense and could not be matched.  On behalf of all at Yorkshire Park our deepest sympathy to Denise, Lisa, Baeden and family.  I will make sure I give Jewel Bromac and extra pat for you Bob.   News, News, News: On behalf of the Yorkshire Park team we hope you had a very Merry Xmas and welcomed in the New Year with your family and friends.  Maybe the odd New Years resolution and a couple of quiet drinks to start of 2018. Reflecting on the 2017 year it certainly provided some ups and downs but all in all it was a good year for the Yorkshire Park owned and bred horses in 2017.  The year certainly provided us with the most number of wins we have had in a calendar year with 26 in total headed up by Artful Christian who scored on 8 occasions, All Done Up 5 wins, Jilliby Babavska 3 wins and Masterkova 3 wins.  The big win came in the South Australian Sapling Stakes when Our Royal Lady won on debut and the most exciting finish to the 3 Year old Breeders Crown Trot when Jilliby Babavska came from last to go down by a neck in a stirring finish and of course the emergence of Masterkova who has won 3 from 3 to date.  The downer for the year was the loss of Whitney H who unfortunately died foaling in September. No doubt one of the highlights for me was the week spent in NZ for New Zealand Cup week which lived up to everything that was expected.  Lazarus was awesome, Amaretto Sun (a full brother to Sixty Plus) won the Dominion Trot and 27,000 people turned out for the Cup day.  It was really enjoyable.  A big thank you to the Addington team, Nevele R Stud, NZ Breeders for the invite to the Awards night, Natalie Rassmussen for her time at the All Stars property and to the team at Ashburton who looked after us so well on the Thursday.  No doubt I will be back next year. This year we will have four fillies heading to the sales with two headed to the APG Melbourne sales, a Rock N Roll Heaven out of My Little Black Dress, a half sister to All Done Up and a Western Terror out of Vickymurphy who is a half sister to Masterkova.  Yorkshire Park will also be represented in the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale with two fillies, a Majestic Son out of Sixty Plus, dam is a full sister to the Dominion winner in NZ Amaretto Sun and a half sister to Jilliby Babavksa by Angus Hall. All our mares have now foaled and we ended up with four colts and two fillies and we are really excited about what their future may hold.  To date we have two of our mares back in foal and we should have another three in the coming weeks.  Most pleasing is the news that Watch The Dream is confirmed in foal to Sportswriter and Vickymurphy to Well Said.  Our NZ fillies are both in the paddock although Lutetia Midfrew (Sportswriter) will be back in the next week or so while Rosa Parks will spend a little longer in the paddock.  Pearlescent returns from a spell on Thursday at Mildura, Whosashadylady will be in on Sunday at Hobart and Artful Christian on Saturday at Bendigo. So what does 2018 bring?  For Yorkshire Park no doubt our aim will be to better the results of 2017 and continue to breed the future stars for the harness racing track.  We get a lot of enjoyment out of our horses doing well for the owners who purchased from us and the elusive Group One would be a good result.  We look forward to our two year old gracing the track shortly and working with this years foals. Five 2018 Predictions for Yorkshire Park. Masterkova – 3 from 3 to date for the Falcon Seelster filly but I’m positive better things to come. Jilliby Babavska – confident Paddy Lee will win a good race with this bloke. Our Royal Lady – we have yet to see the best of this filly, the 2017 SA Sapling stakes on debut is just the beginning. 2018 Yearling Sales entries – difficult to pick the best but for me the Western Terror and Angus Hall fillies. And the final prediction Lazarus is the second best horse I’ve seen behind the great Popular Alm.   Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19.   That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December, 2017.

Update 23rd December Masterkova makes it three from three at Bendigo tonight with a convincing 5.8 metre win in 1.55.7 over 1650 metres.  Bred by Yorkshire Park the Falcon Seelster out of Vickymurphy  3 YO filly looks in terrific touch for Emma Stewart and it appears there is a lot to look forward to in the future.  Masterkova’s half sister by Western Terror will be sold at the APG Melbourne Yearling sales in February, lot 239, go to apgold.com.au to take a look at her pedigree.   Update: 20th December The last of our foals arrived safely this morning a colt by Alta Christiano out of Jewel Bromac, all doing well.  More good news, positive tests for Watch The Dream to Sportswriter and Vickymurphy to Well Said. News, News, News: Still plenty of action on the foaling front as My Little Black Dress presented Yorkshire Park with a Heston Blue Chip Filly last week which only leaves us with Jewel Bromac to foal.  All the foals this year are doing well and after a horrible start to the breeding season things have turned the corner.  To date we have two fillies and three colts. Great to see Masterkova win convincingly last night in Launceston with a 29.9 metres victory over 1680 metres in 1.58.2 driven by the master Chris Alford.  She is a beautiful filly and now makes it two wins from two starts. Artful Christian continues to be really competitive and is not far away from another victory while it is great news to see Go Home Jo returning to the race track at Charlton this Thursday.  Whosashadylady will also be at the races on Sunday for Adrian Duggan in Hobart. Great news that the Inter Dominion is returning to Victoria next year in a three way deal with Harness Racing NSW and Harness Racing New Zealand.  No doubt the heats should be run at Bendigo, Ballarat & Shepparton to take the best race series back to the people.  Speaking of Inter Dominions what about the current series in Perth, wow the barrier draw for the final has really made it interesting and it will be on early with plenty of speed.  It was fantastic to see the Victorian San Carlo win a heat the other night and if the speed is really on up front he might just sneak into a winning chance over the long distance. Both our New Zealand two year old headed to the work outs at Ashburton the other day with Lutetia Midfrew finishing second and Rosa Parks fourth.  Both were beaten a long way but still need plenty of work yet before racing.  Turns out Rosa Parks performance wasn’t as bad as it looked as she has a slight virus and is being treated by trainer John Hay.  Speaking of John  his team are firing at the moment with Nearis Green and Rebble kibbybones both greeting the judge recently. That’s about it for now.  Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update November, 2017.

News, News, News: What a start to November with a trip across the ditch to Christchurch for New Zealand Cup week and boy did it live up to everything people talk about.  We arrived on the Saturday night and on Sunday had the pleasure to visit the Mark Purdon & Natalie Rassmussen stable which is one of the show pieces in Harness Racing.  It’s hard to describe other than to say the property is immaculate and the facilities are second to none.  Great to see Lazarus wondering around the paddock along with other top quality horses.  Sunday night it was off to the NZ Cup launch at Addington and the pleasure of delivery the 1917 NZ Cup won by Adelaide Direct which currently occupies pride of place at Bendigo Harness Racing Club.  Monday seen us off to Nevele R Stud and then on to the NZ Breeders presentation night.  Tuesday was the big day, 23,000 people ventured to Addington to see Lazarus brain them in the $800,000 NZ Cup while Great Things Happen easily won the trot.  Chase Auckland duly saluted in the NZ Sires Stakes to make it five wins from five starts. It was a real carnival atmosphere and the noise following the NZ National Anthem was really something else only beaten by the roar that went up when Lazarus kicked clear in the straight.  Thursday we ventured to Ashburton trots and on Friday it was back to Addington for Show day and the Group 1 Dominion Trot of $300,000 and the Woodlands Stud NZ FFA of $260,000 to finish off a magnificent week. What was most exciting was the win of Amaretto Sun in the Dominion Trot, a $90 chance driven by 19 year old Sheree Tomlinson in her second year as a junior reinswoman and trained by her grand father Ken Ford.  Amaretto Sun is by Sundon out of Laurel Creek which makes him a full brother to our broodmare Sixty Plus.  It was a real win for the battlers and a real exciting time for Yorkshire Park.  You couldn’t help but feel good about this story. Whilst in NZ we were fortunate to see both our two year olds Lutetia Midfrew and Rosa Parks who are close to heading to the work outs.  Both looked terrific (maybe Lutetia could trim up a bit) and both worked really well under a good hold at trainer John Hay’s property. La Tonneralla presented us with a smart looking colt by Love You while we were in NZ and we are close with My Little Black Dress to foal in the next day or so.  Jewel Bromac is the only mare to foal for us in December. Good luck to Adrian Duggan this week (24th Nov) when the Yorkshire Park owned Whosashadylady makes her debut in Tasmania after a couple of really sound trials.  We wish Adrian and his team all the best on Friday night.  Go Lady. Still trying to recover from NZ Cup week but a big thank you to NZ Trotting Club Chair Brent Smith and CEO Peter Jensen who did everything possible to ensure we had a great week.  The Cup week is a real credit to the club and to the people of Christchurch who support the event magnificently.  Well done everyone and we will definitely be back next year.  (Photos will be on the web site shortly).  Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update October, 2017.

Update 31st October: Good news on the foaling scene with both Vickymurphy & Ima Ritzi Lombo producing foals in the last few days.  Vickymurphy was first to foal on the 29th October with a colt by Somebeachsomewhere and the very next morning Ima Ritzi Lombo produced a filly by Village Jolt.  All are well. Good news out of NZ with both Lutetia Midfrew and Rosa Parks coming along nicely under the care of John Hay at Ashburton.  Big congratulations to John’s partner Ineka Lee who continues to drive winners in NZ in particular the Bettors Delight gelding Norman Richards.  He looks to be a really talented pacer and certainly goes well for Ineka. Not long to go now to head to the New Zealand Cup and I can’t wait for the opportunity to see Lazarus take on a quality field at Addington, Christchurch. News, News, News: Not a lot happening on the racing scene with our Yorkshire Park owned horses but I can report that both Lutetia Midfrew & Rosa Parks are back in work in New Zealand with trainer John Hay.  Both two year old fillies have so far progressed quite well and we are looking forward to the next step with both of them. Whosashadylady has started fast work in the Adrian Duggan stables in Tasmania and continues make steps towards her debut in the apple isle.  Speaking with Adrian recently he is more than happy with her progress. On the breeding scene we have our first foal for the season with Lombo Socialite producing a colt foal by Sportswriter on the 13th October.  Both Ima Ritzi Lombo (in foal to Village Jolt) and Vickymurphy (in foal to Somebeachsomewhere) are due to foal any time now so we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of both foals. I’m also pleased to report that Jilliby Babavska has just returned to work for Paddy Lee and the Breeders Crown Runner up should be improved by the time off the scene.  Masterkova, a winner on debut has been back at the trials and should be at the races shortly. Last Sunday night we attended the Gordon Rothacker Medal Night at Crown Casino and it was a terrific night to celebrate the feats of both man and horse.  Congratulations to the Bendigo Harness Racing Club taking out the “Best Media Award” and to Jim O’Sullivan for his acknowledgement as the Gordon Rothacker Medalist.  A big congratulations to all the HRV Marketing Team for what was an excellent night in showcasing harness racing on the big stage.  And how could I not mention the Victorian Horse of the Year Lenny The Shark, another fantastic achievement to a superb horse and a big well done to David Aitken who spoke magnificently about Lenny.  Such pride and passion.  Must also congratulate Emma Stewart on winning the Pearl Kelly Award and to all who received awards – well done. I had the chance to catch up with Grant Campbell who provided us with a video of the Yorkshire Park bred Petrock – My Little Black Dress colt purchased by Grant & Kerryn at last years APG sales working out recently on the track.  Good to see he is coming along nicely at this stage.  Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update September, 2017.

Update 26th September. Masterkova wins first up at Ballarat in 1.56.6 by a half neck in a terrific effort to hold out the favourite.  The Falcon Seelster – Vickymurphy filly was sold by Yorkshire Park at the 2016 APG Yearling sales in Melbourne.  A bright future ahead for this terrific looking filly. News, News, News: Well after a short break it’s good to be back and providing updates on the progress of Yorkshire Park bred, raced and breeding horses. As with all things in life sometimes you are dealt a card that is totally devastating.  On Wednesday night Whitney H in foal to Art Major suffered complications foaling and unfortunately we lost both the mare and foal by Art Major.  To say this was terrible news was an understatement as we had high hopes for the daughter of Changeover at stud following a short but very promising racing career.  She was such a beautiful mare to do anything with and despite some tears we now need to focus on the remaining mares to foal in the next month or so. Lombo Socialite in foal to Sportswriter is due to foal on the 3rd October, Ima Ritzi Lombo in foal to Village Jolt on the 11th October and Vickymurphy in foal to Somebeachsomewhere on the 20th October.  We then have a short break before the next three mares are due in November and December. On the racing scene Whosashadylady has headed to Tasmania to join the stables of Adrian Duggan near Hobart and we have had good reports on her progress since arriving in the apple isle.  Both our two year olds in NZ have been sent to the paddock for a short spell after doing really well in their early preparation. Great to see Social Fireball great the judge at Bendigo the other Friday night after a couple of really good runs in much better company.  Artful Christian has had no luck of late but another win is just around the corner for him.  The really good news is the 3YO filly Masterkova (Falcon Seelster – Vickymurphy) will make her debut at Ballarat next Tuesday 26th September for the Emma Stewart stable after a couple of really good trials at Ballarat and Melton.  Sold at the 2015 APG Yearling sales the stunning looking filly looks to have good potential and Yorkshire Park look forward to seeing her in action. Really disappointing to hear that the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale is heading back to Melton after a really successful sale at the Oaklands Junction sales centre last year.  Unfortunately Melton isn’t an attractive sales complex and I understand it has been done on a cost basis.  I wonder if they thought about the cost to the breeders when you can’t attract a crowd or investors at a sub standard facility. In November I will be heading to NZ to the NZ Cup week which I’m really looking forward too.  Lots of things to do including NZ Cup function, the NZ Cup at Addington, a trip to Ashburton Trots, visits to Nevele R Stud and the mighty Mark Purdon and Natalie Rassmussen All Stars stable.  It will also be a good chance to visit our NZ trainer John Hay and inspect the two year olds currently in work at Ashburton as well. That’s about it for now, looking forward to bringing you some good news on the breeding front in the coming weeks Don’t forget you can catch us on Twitter @yorkshirepark19. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update August, 2017.

News Update 27th August. Oh so Close!  What an effort today by Jilliby Babavska in the Group 1 Woodlands Stud 3YO Trotting Colts & Geldings Final going down by a neck in 2.0.7 with a fast last half of 58.2 coming from back in the field at the bell.  In a stirring finish Jilliby Babavska just failed to run down the leader in a terrific race on a cold wet and windy Melton day.  Congratulations to Paddy Lee & Glen Craven on a terrific training & driving effort.  The Sundon gelding will  now go to the paddock for a good spell and I’m sure that we have something special to look forward to with this bloke next season. News Update 20th August.  Jilliby Babavska Breeders Crown Bound. Jilliby Babavska notched up his third win on the trot at Maryborough last Thursday in the 3rd Heat of the Breeders Crown in impressive style.  The talented trotter was well handled by Glen Craven and looks to be on the improve with his racing manners.   The Son of Sundon now heads to the 3YO Trotters Breeders Crown Final at Melton on Sunday 27th August in what will be a difficult task after drawing the outside of the second row in the barrier draw at Bendigo on Saturday Night.   No doubt this will be his most difficult challenge to date but with a little luck and on his best behaviour I’m sure he will put himself right in the race.  Good luck to Paddy Lee & Glen Craven on Sunday, lets hope it’s Group One Glory for Yorkshire Park breeding barn.   News Update 12th August. Another fantastic week for Yorkshire Park with three more winners from four starters.  Winners this week were Artful Christian (Charlton), Pearlescent (Mildura) and Go Home Jo (Bankstown).  Fantastic to see Pearlescent win her first race yesterday after a really good second the week before.  Our other runner for the week All Done Up finished 6th after having little luck in a heat of the Breeders Crown. Really saddened to hear of the passing of Cyril Hay the father of Hall Of Fame member and our trainer in NZ John Hay.  All at Yorkshire Park pass on our condolences and best wishes to the Hay family. News Update: 6th August. Jilliby Babavska continued on his good form with an impressive win Redwood day at Maryborough in the Ralph Ford Memorial 3YO Trot over 2190 metres.  Coming from the outside of the second row the Sundon gelding stormed home to win by 20.6 metres in a quick time of 2.0.8 confidently driven by Glen Craven.  No doubt the talented trotter continues to improve and may have been a bit unlucky to miss out on a start in the Victoria Trotters Derby ran later in the day.  Out of the Yorkshire Park mare La Tonneralla the 3 YO is related to two NZ Derby winners and looks as though he is on the way up. News, News, News: What a month July was for Yorkshire Park bred and sold horses with 19 starters taking to the track returning 9 wins, 4  placings and 4 individual winners.  The star of the month was All Done Up who put together 4 wins on the trot, Artful Christian and Social Fireball with 2 wins and Jilliby Babavska 1 win.   All Done Up is the first foal of My Little Black Dress (Real Desire) who has subsequently foaled a 2 YO by Auckland Reactor called Dancing Along, a colt by Pet Rock sold to Kerryn Manning at last years APG sale, and a weanling filly by Rock N Roll Heaven who has been entered for the APG Melbourne sale in February.  My Little Black Dress is currently in foal to Heston Blue Chip. Really pleased to see Social Fireball putting it all together at her last three starts with two very impressive wins and a placing.  The talented trotter is by the ill fated Courage Under Fire and has always shown above average ability but found ways to get it all wrong on occasions.  Well done to trainer Brooke Hansen on her efforts with the mare and the marked improvement in  her manners. Artful Christian continues on his good form having won 7 races from just 20 starts to date including two really impressive wins during the month of July.  The Major In Art gelding continues to get better with every run and has only been out of the prize money on four or five occasions to date.  No doubt there is a lot more in store for this bloke based on his performance to date and hopefully he can progress to Metropolitan class in the future. Jilliby Babavska finally broke through for his maiden win after running two very good placings during the month.  The talented Sundon trotter was very impressive winning by 47 metres at Maryborough a week ago and when he learns to race truly he will no doubt pick up more wins on the way.  There is a lot to look forward to with this breed as his mother La Tonneralla is a half sister to 2 NZ Trotting Derby winners.  The mare has produced two other foals to date, a colt by Majestic Son sold at last years Australasian Trotting Sale and a weanling filly by Angus Hall.  She is currently in foal to Love You and we are very excited about  this mating. On the racing scene Whosashadylady is still in the paddock and our two yearlings in NZ, Lutetia Midfrew and Rosa Parks continue to come along quite nicely under the care of John Hay in Ashburton. Not long now before the foaling season is in full swing and the excitement of newly born foals safely on the ground all in good order.  Yorkshire Park is currently working through this years breeding program and will announce what mares are going to what stallions this season shortly.  What we do know is that recently retired

News Update July, 2017.

Update 23rd July: A big week for Yorkshire Park bred runners with three wins and a second from the four starters almost the perfect score.  All Done Up continued her great form with a win on Monday at Maryborough and followed up with a win at Globe Derby on Saturday night. The daughter of My Little Black Dress has won three in a row and took her prize money to over $50,000.  Social Fireball greeted the judge at Stawell after leading all the way and trainer Brooke Hansen should be congratulated on a top effort to change the attitude of the trotting filly.  We almost made it four from four when Artful Christian finished second at Bendigo on Thursday night. Good to see Go Home Jo back at the track this coming Wednesday night after injury and we wish Shane & Lauren all the best with her.  Pearlescent goes round on Tuesday night and gets her chance to break through for her maiden win.     News, News, News: A mixed month on the race track for Yorkshire Park with Whosashadylady qualifying for the semi finals of the NSW Breeders Challenge at Menangle but then disappointing in both the semi final and her subsequent start at Bathurst.  The end result is that she has gone to the paddock for a good spell and hopefully after a three month spell will return to the race track.  Since arriving from NZ she has had 11 starts for a win, four seconds, three thirds a fourth and the last two disappointing runs. Great to see Artful Christian great the judge recently at Horsham in slick time after being three wide for a lap and a half.  He recorded win number six from 17 starts and continues to perform well.  Owned by Yorkshire Park but leased to Bendigo committeeman Peter Svanosio the son of Major In Art has been a terrific performer and looks to have a few more wins in him still to come.  Pearlescent is another horse owned by Yorkshire Park but leased to John & Maree Caldow ran a much better race at Ararat the other night and will get her chance this coming Wednesday at Shepparton drawing the pole position over 1690 metres.  The filly certainly has ability but can be very wayward at times.  I mentioned last month that a 3 YO trotter which was sold by Yorkshire Park through the Australian Premier Trotting sale a couple of years ago called Jilliby Babavska would be worth following in the future races at Ballarat Thursday night after a much improved 3rd placing recently at Maryborough.  Keep an eye out for him as he has plenty of ability. Disappointing news about Our Royal Lady who has been sent to the paddock for a spell after having bone chips removed from a fetlock joint recently.  The very first winner by Lincoln Royal, bred by Yorkshire Park and a winner of the SA Sapling Stakes at her first start showed plenty of promise being placed in another of her three starts to date.  She is a beautiful filly and shows plenty of ability and we wish the owners all the best with her in the future. Not a lot to report on Yorkshire Park’s two yearling fillies in New Zealand at the moment, Rosa Parks and Lutetia Midfrew, under the care of John Hay at Ashburton.  Spoke with John the other day and they are coming along nicely. More to report on their progress during the month. This week sees the culmination of the Empire Vic Bred Super Series with the trotters finals on Friday night and the pacers on Saturday night at Melton.  This is a great time of the year for harness racing when we see the best of our young horses doing battle for Group One glory.  One of Yorkshire Park’s trainers Graham Lyon at Kyabram will have his talented 4 YO trotter Getthenet going around in the $80,000 final and we wish him and the owners all the very best.  While on the Vic Bred series one of my favourite horses Brallos Pass will contest the 4YO pacers race and once again we wish Mark Watson and the owners all the best with the little fella. Not a lot to report on the breeding side of things at present but it won’t be long before we start gearing up for the foaling season.  It will be an exciting time this year as Yorkshire Park have seven mares in foal and we look forward to seeing the foals all safely on the ground.  Our four weanling fillies have all settled in at Yorkshire Park since returning last month and we look forward to working with them over the coming months.  The two pacing fillies and two trotting fillies are doing well and enjoying their time out in the paddock before they will come back in for further education. Yorkshire Park are now on twitter so if you wish to follow us on @yorkshirepark19 we will bring all updates and comments for your information.   That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update June, 2017.

  News, News, News: Whosashadylady continued on her good form during May with a good win at Young followed by placings at Bathurst, a third in the heat of the Breeders Challenge series and a really good effort to finish second in a 3YO race coming from last at the 300 metres mark to go down by a metre.  She will go to Bathurst again this coming Wednesday (7th June) before contesting the semi final of the Breeders Challenge series at Menangle on the 17th June.  Since arriving from New Zealand the Bettors Delight filly has had 8 starts for a win, 3 seconds, 3 thirds and a fourth.  She has been very consistent and we hope that she can continue on this form into the Breeders Challenge Finals. Our Alta Christiano yearling gelding has been sold and will head to the stables of John Tormey at Charlton.  The new owners will really enjoy having this bloke around as he is a lovely horse to do anything with and Mark Watson, who broke him in, was very pleased with they way he went.  I believe he is the first horse for the owners so we at Yorkshire Park wish them all the best.  Go Ricky!!! Keep an eye out for one of the Yorkshire Park horses sold through the Australasian Premier Trotting sale a couple of years ago called Jilliby Babavska.  Yorkshire Park purchased the mare La Tonneralla, a half sister to two NZ Derby winners in foal to Sundon.  All reports are that he is going along quite nicely and hopefully will grace the racetrack again shortly.  The mare has produced a colt by Majestic Son which is in the care of Chris Alford and a weanling filly by Angus Hall who is a stunning individual. All our weanlings are expected to arrive home at Yorkshire Park this week and we eagerly await their arrival.  Two trotting fillies by Angus Hall & Majestic Son and two pacing fillies by Western Terror and Rock N Roll Heaven will arrive this week. Congratulations to one of our trainers Graham Lyon on the impressive win during the week of Mana Master at Echuca.  After galloping early he gave them 40 metres start before circling the field three wide for a lap and going on to win by a head.  A terrific performance by the Passmaster Hanover gelding. Well done to the Michael Bellman on his drive with All Done Up at Maryborough on Thursday.  The Yorkshire Park bred filly by Mach Three chalked up her third win and took her earnings to just over $36,000 in an impressive time of 1.58.0 over the 2100 metre journey.  There is not a lot of her in size but always gives her best and no doubt there will be more wins in store for her. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May, 2017.

Update: Whosashadylady breaks through for her first win at Young on Friday night 19th May,  in convincing fashion.  Well done Amanda and the team. News, News, News The month of May has continued on in the same vein on the racing scene for Yorkshire Park with Whosashadylady finishing 2nd in both of her last two starts at Bathurst.  This coming Sunday she ventures to Cowra in the Muddle Memorial over 1700 metres drawing barrier 5.  She has been very consistent in her four starts to date finishing 4th, 3rd ,2nd & 2nd again.  Lets hope that this Sunday she might find the line in 1st placing. Our NZ yearling fillies Lutetia Midfrew & Rosa Parks have completed their first preparations and have now gone to the paddock for a six week spell.  Both handled being broken in quite well, very different types of fillies but each thrived on their first preparation under the guidance of John & Ineka at Ashburton. Our Alta Christiano yearling gelding will finish his first preparation this week under the care of Mark Watson at Kyabram.  He has done really well and is a lovely pacer who enjoys his work and looks the part.  He is currently on the market and to date you would not be any more happier with what he has done.  If he is not sold we will look to syndicate him out and retain an interest in him ourselves. On the breeding scene all our foals have been weaned and currently being handled as part of their education process.  All four will return to Yorkshire Park by the end of the month and continue with the educational process.  I am really pleased with all four but must admit I have taken a bit of a liking to the Angus Hall trotting filly. Great to see Our Royal Lady heading to Victoria this coming Thursday night at Ballarat for the Vic Bred Platinum series following her fantastic debut win in the SA Sapling Stakes.  Talking to her owners she has done particularly well since her win and is expected to perform well while she is in Victoria.  Good luck to the owners and Alan Cronin the trainer with this filly.  Interestingly she was the first winner for new sire Lincoln Royal (Sir Lincoln in NZ) on either side of the Tasman something as breeders of the filly we are extremely proud off.  A big congratulations to former Country Clubs CEO David Brick on his appointment to Queensland Racing recently.  David has done a terrific job with the Country Clubs and I’m sure we will miss his ever reliable assistance and support.  It is a great opportunity for him and his family and we wish him well and hope to see him back in the not to distant future.   That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April, 2017.

Update 23rd April, 2017 Our Royal Lady wins the SA Sapling Stakes over 1800 metres at Globe Derby at her race track debut driven by Ken Rogers.  Working out of the gate to sit behind the leader the filly got clear at the top of the straight to power home and win by a half head in 2.1.6.  Part owner Greg Moy said “It was a great thrill to win such a race”.  Yorkshire Park congratulates trainer Alan Cronin and the owners on the win. Update 20th April, 2017 Great to see Our Royal Lady making her racetrack debut in the SA Sapling Stakes for 2 year olds at Globe Derby on Saturday 22nd April.  By Lincoln Royal the filly is a half sister to the recent Yorkshire Park bred winner Stylish Icon who is raced by the same connections and trained by Alan Cronin.  Good luck to all the team and hopefully it will be a rewarding debut.   Update 15th April, 2017 Artful Christian ventured to Ararat on Saturday night scoring win number 5 from 14 starts with a solid performance after having no luck earlier in the week at Charlton.  The Major In Art gelding has been a model of consistency in his 14 starts not finishing any further back than 5th placing.  Owned by Yorkshire Park and leased to Peter Svanosio and trained and driven by his son Chris the four year old looks set for more victories along the way. Update: 10th April, 2017 Great news for the new owners of Stylish Icon when the For A Reason 3 year old won at Strathalbyn on Monday by 4.8 metres in 2.0.7 after doing all the work and sitting in the death seat.  It’s a great result all round and I’m sure the filly has more wins in her yet.  Too top off a really good week for the same ownership the 2 year old filly by Lincoln Royal bred by Yorkshire Park, a half sister to Stylish Icon, won her trial at Globe Derby by 30 metres in good time and having now qualified will head to the race track.  Congratulations to trainer Alan Cronin and we will watch with interest as both fillies grace the race track.  News, News, News Another round of yearling sales completed today with both the Australasian Premier Trotting sale and the APG Melbourne Autumn sale completed at Oaklands Junction sales complex.  Yorkshire Park sole trotting entry a colt by Majestic Son out of La Tonneralla went through the sales today and was sold for $11,000 to Craig Nott and will no doubt head to the Chris Alford stable.  While he did fail to meet his initial reserve price we felt it was best to let him go given we weren’t far away from the asking price.  A half brother to the very talented Jilliby Babavska we wish Craig and Chris all the very best with this colt. A mixed result in the APG sale with two entries for Yorkshire Park, a colt by Auckland Reactor which sold for $6,000 and a colt by Sportswriter who went for $12,500.  Pleasingly the colts will head to good stables and we wish the new owners all the very best with both of them.  It was a really tough day for breeders and we can only hope that things will be on the up for next years sales. While speaking of selling horses our three year old filly Stylish Icon has been sold and will head to the Murray Bridge stable of Alan Cronin who purchased the filly on the back of her terrific run at Melton last week.  Despite finishing in 7th position her sectionals were terrific after being restrained from the wide gate back to last and working home the last mile in 1.55.6 and 56.9 for the last 400 metres.  Interestingly the Cronin stable purchased her half sister a 2 year old by Lincoln Royal named Our Royal Lady who will qualify shortly.  Good luck to the owners of both fillies. No luck last Thursday night with Whosashadylady who was meant to make her Australian debut for Yorkshire Park at Penrith only to see the meeting abandoned due to the heavy rain and the state of the track.  We will now see Whosashadylady head to Bathurst next Friday under the guidance of Amanda Turnbull. A big congratulations to Chris & Peter Svanosio on the performance of Artful Christian (Major In Art) this time in now having six starts for three wins and three placings.  Owned by Yorkshire Park and leased to Peter & Chris the son of Major In Art continues to be very consistent in his race track performances.  His career to date is 12 starts for 4 wins, 3 seconds, 3 thirds and 2 fifths. Yorkshire Parks yearling purchases this year continue to do well all at various stages of being broken in with Lutetia Midfrew and Rosa Parks in New Zealand and our Alta Christiano gelding in the care of Mark Watson at Kyabram.  We will continue to  monitor their progress and update you on how they are going.  Last Saturday night Brenda & I attended the Bathurst Gold Crown meeting as guest of the Bathurst Club.  A big congratulations to President Wayne Baker and the team on presenting such a good carnival and final night event.  It was a truly enjoyable night with quality racing, entertainment and something for everyone.  To top it off we did see a performance that you only see every now and then with the Shane and Lauren Tritton trained My Sweetchilliphilly smashed a good field of 2 year old fillies in the Bathurst Gold Tiara $104,000 Group One event.  It was a truly amazing performance by the Betterthancheddar filly who did all the work and then proceeded to run away from them in the straight winning by 21 metres in 1.54.7. With looks of a super star and ability to burn the filly will no doubt provide her owners and exciting time in the

Commentary:  Second row draw doesn’t pose any problems as we should get a good run through following one of the favourite runners early.  Her run on Sunday was good and she keeps knocking on the door, hopefully the next win is just around the corner.        

News Update February,2017

News Update 22nd February, 2017. Yorkshire Park has been active at the Christchurch NZ yearling sales purchasing two fillies on day one of the sales.  I was really pleased with our purchases and appreciate the support of Ashburton trainer John Hay who inspected both fillies for us on the day. Lot 182 Lutetia Midfrew – by Sportswriter out of a Mach Three winning mare and a half sister to the very well performed Libertybelle Midfrew, Lulli Midfrew and Luisanabelle Midfrew.  To date the mare has left 3 foals including the very well performed Eyre Crusher runner up in the WA Derby winning on 8 occasions.  This Sportswriter filly took my eye as a lovely relaxed and very good walking filly, she looks like she will go as a two year old and has some growing still to do. Really like this one. Lot 221 Rosa Parks – by Net Ten Eom (USA) out of the good performing broodmare Niftey Franco by Badlands Hanover.  And yes you will recognise the breeding here as she is a half sister to the Yorkshire Park owned Whitney H.  Niftey Franco has left the very well credentialed Glenferrie Hood 22 wins and $233K in prize money. We had a big opinion of Whitney H before injury struck and this filly went through the ring at a bargain price.  She will be raced in partnership with John & Ineka at Ashburton and we hope she can emulate the deeds of her brothers and sisters.  Couldn’t let this bargain go. In other news our colts set for the April 2 sales all headed off to the preparers this week with the trotting colt by Majestic Son heading to Kath McIntosh at Northern Rivers and the Sportswriter and Auckland Reactor colts heading to Blanche Poole at Rhiannon Park. News, News, News What a great time of the year to be a Harness racing enthusiast with the Victoria Cup, Hunter Cup, Victoria Derby, Great Southern Star and many of the Country Cups taking place across regional Victoria.  Top that off with the APG yearling sales in Melbourne last weekend and you really do get a bit excited.  Watching the best horses, trainers and drivers in action really does give you a lift  and gives you the confidence to move forward in our harness racing endeavours. On the racing scene at Yorkshire Park, Whosashadylady has returned to work after having a month in the paddock so we look forward to the Bettors Delight 3 year old filly returning to make her race track return in the coming months.  Stylish Icon will most likely go round at Swan Hill next Wednesday 16th February which will be her first start since finishing 4th at Melton a month ago.  She is coming along nicely and getting stronger all the time.  Watch The Dream has been a bit indifferent with her form after really good efforts for a 2nd at Bendigo and Kilmore to a disappointing performance last Monday night at Kilmore again.  She pulled hard in the run and did get a little stirred up after two false starts but really didn’t flatter at all in the run home.  She will be in at Shepparton on Sunday 12th February and a change of tactics with her might be on the cards.  On the breeding scene we have positive test results for My Little Black Dress (Heston Blue Chip), La Tonneralla (Love You) and Jewel Bromac (Alta Christiano) so all of our 7 mares this year are in foal.  Our four fillies born this season are progressing well and we look forward to having them home shortly. It was a long day on Sunday at the Melbourne APG Yearling sales but congratulations should go out to the team at APG for the way in which the sale was marketed and conducted.  The crowd was the best I have seen for a few years and the vendors and preparers should be congratulated on the way the produced the yearlings for sale.  Special thanks to our preparer Blanche & Dean Poole and their team of workers for the wonderful job they did with our yearlings.  They looked terrific and behaved very well through out the three days. Two of the three yearlings we had in the sale were sold, Courage Under Fire Colt is off to the Barry Dunn stable and the Pet Rock colt will head to Great Western and the stables of Kerryn Manning and Grant Campbell.  Our Alta Christiano colt didn’t reach his reserve price so we decided to bring him home and we will look at what we do with him for the future. He is still for sale but if that doesn’t eventuate we will look at possibly syndicating him and looking for a trainer to take him on. The next step will be the  Melbourne Autumn sale with two colts by Sportswriter and Auckland Reactor and a trotting colt by Majestic Son for the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale on the 2nd of April.   All three colts will head off to the preparers next week to start their preparation. That’s about all for now.   Good luck and good punting.   Yorkshire Park team.

Commentary: Really not sure what to say about her after a dismal performance at Kilmore on Monday.  She did get stirred up with the two false starts and pulled hard in the run but really didn’t run on at all.  Her work has been good, she looks a treat so not sure where to go here other than going back and looking for cover might be the option here.  She is a mare with ability so an improved performance wouldn’t surprise.

Commentary: She continues to improve in her work and is no doubt getting stronger.  Barrier four is a tricky one but we will leave it up to John Caldow to negotiate the draw.  Pleasing thing about this filly is her improvement and while a lot will depend on what happens early we think she can still be in the firing line. – Unfortunately we had to scratch the filly from her engagement at Horsham today, no major dramas and hopefully she will be back in the next week or two.

Commentary: Yet another second placing last start going down by a head in a slowly run first half of the last mile but she did get up the sprint lane good.  Another opportunity on Sunday drawing the coveted barrier one so hopefully we can salute the judge first this time round.  Dreamy is working good and looks a treat so fingers crossed for Sunday.

Stylish Icon – Melton Monday 16th January, 2017 Race 1 No 3 over 1720 metres to be driven by Paul Campbell. Commentary: Stylish Icon resumes from a spell on Monday night following a good trial win at Maryborough by 12 metres last Sunday getting home in 59.0 seconds a mile rate 2.6.0 for the journey.  She still has a lot to learn but her work has been good during the week and what ever she does here we expect to see further improvement. Watch The Dream – Bendigo Tuesday 17th January, 2017 Race 5 No 1 over 2150 metres to be driven by Damian Wilson. Commentary: A good run at Shepparton last week despite having no luck on a really hot day.  She has had ten seconds and three thirds since her last win and I think she gets her chance to break through again on Tuesday night.  Her work since last week has been good, she looks terrific and we are hoping that things might turn for the ultra consistent mare.    

News Update January,2017

News, News, News Welcome to 2017, another year commences and we hope that everyone had a great X Mas and celebrated well welcoming in the new year. On the racing scene we all but got the cash with Watch The Dream on New Years Night finishing a close second beaten a neck at Echuca in a fast finishing effort which was really pleasing how she hit the line.  Dreamy is a very consistent mare and hopefully luck turns her way shortly having now recorded ten second placings in her career.  During December she finished fourth at Bendigo and third at Elmore so I guess her form says she is working up to a well deserved win.  Let’s hope that her next engagement at Shepparton on Friday day 6th January will be that win despite drawing awkwardly in barrier five.  We will leave it up to Damian Wilson to decide on what position we take up from the tricky barrier. Stylish Icon will head to the trials at Bendigo on Monday night as she begins her second race track appearance under the guidance of Paul Campbell.  She has done particularly well this time in and will need a couple of trials to get her ready for the race track.  Hopefully she will perform well on Monday night. Whosashadylady has gone to the paddock for a month off after arriving from New Zealand.  Trainer Amanda Turnbull thought it best to give her a short let up before resuming her racing career.  By Bettors Delight the filly is not overly big and will appreciate the short break following a tough run at Ashburton and the plane trip over to Sydney. Great to see the Graham Lyon trained Getthenet chalk up three wins in a row since returning to the race track during December which now gives the mare three wins, three seconds and three thirds from fifteen starts.  Looks as though there will be more wins in store for the mare on her recent form.  On the breeding front I’m please to say that we have had our last foal for the season just prior to X Mas when Sixty Plus delivered a filly by Majestic Son.  This year has really been the year of the filly for us with other fillies by Western Terror, Angus Hall and Rock N Roll Heaven arriving safely.  We have also been able to confirm that Vickymurphy (in foal to Somebeachsomewhere), Lombo Socialite (in foal to Sportswriter) and Ima Ritzi Lombo (in foal to Village Jolt) have all been confirmed in foal along with Whitney H (in foal to Art Major).  We also have 15 day positive tests for My Little Black Dress (Heston Blue Chip) and La Tonneralla (Love You) and await results for Jewel Bromac (Alta Christiano) in the coming weeks. Yorkshire Parks three colts entered for the Melbourne APG sale on the 5th of February, 2017 have arrived safely at Dean & Blanche Poole’s at Shepparton as they prepare the colts for the sales.  Yorkshire Park will have the only Alta Christiano Colt in the Melbourne sale along with Colts by Pet Rock and Courage Under Fire.  All colts are out of winning producing mares and we look forward to sales day and hopefully a good result.  Our remaining three colts by Sportswriter, Auckland Reactor and Majestic Son will be presented at the Melbourne Autumn sale in April. Don’t forget to get yourself along to the Country Cups circuit in the coming months and the Victoria and Hunter Cups as the harness racing season really hots up.  It is a great time of the year for harness racing with the best of the best doing battle for some serious prize money and bragging rights.  It’s a time that can be enjoyed by all of the family so don’t hold back get to the trots!!!   That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December,2016

News, News, News Once again the year has just gone really quickly as Yorkshire Park has now settled into our new property at Carlsruhe.  While there is always something to be done it is very exciting to mould a property into what best suits your breeding processes and take stock of what needs to be done going forward.   It is great to see plenty of water and feed around and the horses doing really well in a great environment.  On the racing scene Watch The Dream returned to the race track last week with a solid run first up beaten 11 metres in 1.58.0 at Shepparton over the mile.  While not having a lot of luck in then last 200 metres she will take great benefit out of that run for her next start.  That will be at Bendigo on Friday night drawing barrier 8 over the 1650 metres in Race 1 with a few minor gear changes to help her on her way.  We are expecting an improve performance and despite drawing the inside of the second row with a bit of luck we think she will be right in it. Stylish Icon has been back in work for about three weeks now and we will watch her progression with interest.  Talking to trainer Paul Campbell he is happy with her condition and she has a great attitude to her work.  We will see her work load  increase over the next week or two.  The For A Reason 3 year old should be at the race track in a month or so. I Can Dream has been to the work outs and trials in New Zealand recently and despite fairing ok  finishing 3rd at the work outs didn’t cover herself in glory with a disappointing trial at Ashburton last week.  A decision on her racing future will be decided shortly with the option of the breeding barn the most likely path travelled.  A new addition to the Yorkshire Park team from New Zealand is the Bettors Delight 3 Year Old filly Whosashadylady who arrived in Sydney last Friday and headed straight to the Amanda Turnbull stable at Bathurst.  Out of the mare Nightshade Franco she is closely related to Nike Franco and a half sister to the 8 times winning colt Regal Nightshade 1.54.1.  Having been to the races on two occasions the filly has finished down the track in her first start and a very strong 5th at Ashburton in 1.54.0 most recently.  What impressed me outside of her future breeding opportunities was her race performance at Ashburton after being three wide for a 1000 metres but still finishing on strongly recording a 1.55.0 mile rate herself.  Lets hope she can grace the winners circle in the very  near future. On the breeding scene we have had two more foals since our last update with a filly by Angus Hall out of La Tonneralla and another filly by Rock N Roll Heaven out of My Little Black Dress.  Both are progressing well and we are down to only one mare to foal, Sixty Plus who is in foal to Majestic Son. Whitney H returned home to us last week and the good news is she is in foal to Art Major and she looks an absolute treat.  She has settled in well at Yorkshire Park and will be joined by Lombo Socialite and Ima Ritzi Lombo soon, both of whom we are awaiting final confirmation of being in foal. On the Yearling sales scene we have confirmed that three of our colts will be heading to the APG Yearling sales on the 5th February, 2017. Colt by Petrock out of My Little Black Dress (half brother to All Done Up). Colt by Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite (full brother to Social Fireball). Colt by Alta Christiano out of Ima Ritzi Lombo (half brother to Go Home Jo). All three colts are in great condition and all out of mares who have left winners. The other three colts will head to the APG Autumn Sale and the Australian Premier Trotting Sale on the 2nd April, 2017. Colt by Sportswriter out of Rock Me Gently. Colt by Auckland Reactor out of Jewel Bromac. Trotting Colt by Majestic Son out of La Tonneralla. All colts will be prepared by Blanche & Dean Poole who do a terrific job with the yearlings.   That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.                                                        

News Update October,2016

News, News, News It’s good to be back and providing updates for Yorkshire Park on what has been going on from a racing, breeding and general update perspective.  One thing for sure we have had plenty of rain over the last three months and no doubt we are all looking forward to some sunny and warm weather to finish off towards the end of the year.  On the racing scene it has been a mixed bag for Yorkshire Park’s current racing team.  Watch The Dream is on her way back and will be at the trials in the next fortnight.  Trainer Graham Lyon reports that she is progressing well with  slightly different preparation to last time in work which we hope will bring that winning formula back to the Bettors Delight mare.  She looks in terrific condition and her work has been very good.  Let’s hope she can break that nine seconds she recorded last time in work. I Can Dream in the John Hay stables in NZ has been progressing well until recently when she has just not taken that next step to get her to the trials.  It will be crunch time for the well bred filly in the next week or two and a decision will need to be made to continue on or maybe head her straight to the breeding barn.  She looks terrific in herself but really needs to make that next step. Stylish Icon is enjoying a well deserved spell and has been in the paddock for about two months now.  Its been a wet winter/ spring all round but she has done particularly well and looks a treat.  We will discuss her likely return to the race track with trainer Paul Campbell shortly. Great to see a couple of Yorkshire Park bred horses winning recently notably Major Charge at Cranbourne at the massive odds of $65 a win and the Tasmanian owned and trained Aitutaki who greeted the judge at Launceston following some consistent form in the stable of Ben Yole. On the breeding scene Yorkshire Park has a lovely Western Terror filly born recently out of the Bettors Delight mare Vickymurphy.  Good news also for us with Neishars Jet delivering a Major In Art colt this week, a beautiful black colt.  Yorkshire Park has a small interest in the mare in conjunction with a number of Kyabram footballers who delivered on the football field this year going through undefeated all season.  Well done boys, lets hope this little colt can deliver on the race track in the same way.  This week we expect to see the arrival of a Angus Hall foal out of our trotting mare La Tonneralla who is due shortly.  We also await a Rock N Roll Heaven foal out of My Little Black Dress and a Majestic Son foal out of Sixty Plus.  On the sad side our mare Ima Ritzi Lombo slipped her foal recently which is always devastating to have take place.  She will now go back to Village Jolt this season. Yorkshire Park will be updating our web site shortly which will have some changes which we think will enhance our site and make it even more interesting for our followers.  We have some great new photos of our new property, updated photos of our horses, some videos and a slightly different format.  Looking forward to see how it all works out. This time of the year is fantastic from a racing perspective with the return of all the good horses preparing for Country Cups and a trip to the Inter Dominion in Perth.  If you haven’t seen the performance of Hectorjayjay (1.57.6) in the Swan Hill Cup recently do your self a favour and watch him absolutely destroy a classy field in track record time. Both Country Cups run to date have been fantastic races with Ohaka Punter taking out the Maryborough Cup in style today.  Really makes you look forward to the rest of the Cup season. Yearling Sale time is not that far way and our boys who are entered for the sales are back at Yorkshire Park for some further education and then some more time out in the paddock before heading to Rhiannon Park to be prepared for the sales by Blanche and Dean Poole.  We have six colts heading to the sales this year and we will soon find out what sales they will be represented in.  To date I’m really pleased with the colts and I can assure you there will be something for everyone heading to the sales from Yorkshire Park.  Five pacers by Pet Rock, Alta Christiano, Sportswriter, Auckland Reactor and Courage Under Fire plus our only trotting colt by Majestic Son will represent the Yorkshire Park draft.  We will update with some photos as we progress and get closer to the sales.   That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.                                                        

News Update August,2016

News, News, News What a month it has been!  The big move to our new property has been a challenge but we are here and looking forward to building on the facilities we have at “Yorkshire Park at The Grove” in Carlsruhe.  One thing for sure we have certainly arrived during winter with plenty of rain to greet us, the highest rainfall in 15 years according to the locals.  All that aside it has provided full dams and no doubt will ensure plenty of feed in the coming months.  While all our horses are yet to arrive we look forward to getting them here over the next month or so. On the racing scene it is that time of the year.  Super Sunday Breeders Crown Finals day, one of the most exciting harness racing days on the calendar with all the very best horses from both sides of the Tasman here to contest an absolutely wonderful series.  And the good news is that we are represented by three fillies in the Group One races which have been bred, raised or sold by Yorkshire Park.  Despite horror barrier draws it will be a very exciting day for Yorkshire Park to see the fillies strut their stuff on harness racing biggest day.  So here they are: Social Fireball – 3 YO Trotting Fillies $60,000 Breeders Crown Group One Final, Race 1 No 11 to be driven by Geoff Webster.  A very talented filly who has done a few things wrong in her races of recent times.  The filly by Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite will need to be at her very best to figure in the finish.  A Group 1 runner up as a 2YO and a Group 3 winner as a 3 YO she has ability and will need plenty to go right to overcome a smart field and a difficult barrier draw. All Done Up – 2 YO Pacing Fillies $280,000 Breeders Crown Group One Final, Race 7 No 12 to be driven by Michael Bellman.  By Mach Three out of NZ mare My Little Black Dress she is only small in stature but her run in semi finals at Bendigo last Saturday night when finishing 3rd was a terrific effort.  A really tough barrier draw and again a smart field of fillies will make it tough but with the right run she might just surprise. Sold by Yorkshire Park for $7,000 at the 2014 APG Yearling Sales. Go Home Jo – 2 YO Pacing Fillies $280,000 Breeders Crown Group One Final, Race 7 No 11 to be driven by Nathan Purdon. This Roll With Joe out of Ima Ritzi Lombo filly had no luck in the semi finals and finished of the race really well.  A tough draw again here and will need a bit to go her way to figure in the finish.  Sold by Yorkshire Park privately after being passed in at the 2014 APG Yearling sales. Really pleased to report that Watch The Dream returned to the Graham Lyon stable yesterday (21st) to resume her racing campaign after a 7 week break.  Stylish Icon pulled up well after her race track debut but suffered an infected hock and will return home to Yorkshire Park tomorrow for a well deserved spell.  I Can Dream continues to do well in NZ under the care of John Hay and hopefully we will see her at the trials very soon.  Congratulations to the team at the Bendigo Harness Racing Club who conducted the Semi Finals of the Breeders Crown last Saturday night.  It was a fantastic night, top racing on a fantastic race track, plenty of people and entertainment on the night.  It was a great atmosphere and says a lot for hosting events like this in the country areas.  Well done all.   That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update July,2016

News, News, News It’s almost time!!  Yes Yorkshire Park is relocating to our new home at Carlsruhe on 53 acres all set up and ready to go.  The property is well set up for breeding and raising our horses with well fenced paddocks, six box stable complex,  round yard, 7 spelling paddocks with shelters an equestrian arena and a large broodmare spelling paddock .  To add to the many horse facilities which over look Mt Macedon the property also has 500 established Olive trees producing quality organic Olive Oil.  Currently known as “The Grove” Yorkshire Park look forward to the next step in our breeding operation. The last month has provided a number of highlights for Yorkshire Park bred and raised horses with Social Fireball winning the Group 3 $25,000 Super Sires Silver Series for 3 YO Trotting fillies by 19.8 metres in an outstanding performance.  A big well done to Brooke Hansen and Tim O’Brien on a memorable night at Melton.  Go Home Jo (Roll With Joe – I’m A Ritzi Lombo) notched up her first win in the $12,000 2 YO Fillies Super Sires Silver series at Melton with a gutsy all the way win after a really good effort finishing 6th in the Group 1 NSW Breeders Challenge for 2 YO fillies after a horror barrier draw only going down by 10 metres.  She then followed up with a luckless 6th in the Group 2 Tatlow Stakes for 2 YO fillies at Melton last Saturday night.  Based on her efforts to date she will no doubt  chalk up more wins in the future. Great to see the Yorkshire Park bred and leased Artful Christian (Major In Art) winning at Maryborough today following three really good runs prior, two of those finishing second.  Leased by Bendigo Harness Racing Club Committeeman Peter Svanosio, trained and driven by his son Chris, the 3 YO has been really impressive to date in a solid 1.58.2 mile rate.  On the racing scene Yorkshire Park owned horses Watch The Dream (Bettors Delight) has gone to the paddock for a well deserved spell finishing the season with 17 starts for 9 seconds and 2 thirds,  2 YO Stylish Icon (For A Reason) will venture to the trials this coming Sunday to qualify and I Can Dream (If I Can Dream) is coming along nicely in New Zealand under the care of John Hay at Ashburton. Nominations for the 2017 February APG Yearling Sales close at the end of the month and Yorkshire Park will be presenting 5 yearling colts for the sales. We will also present our only trotting colt at the Australasian Trotting Sale in April.  Our entires will be: Auckland Reactor – Jewel Bromac, Courage Under Fire – Lombo Socialite, (full brother to Social Fireball).

News Update June,2016

News, News, News     News Update: On the racing scene Watch The Dream continues to perform well finishing 2nd and 4th in her two Victorian starts since returning from NSW.  Her next race track assignment will be on the 16th June at Kilmore over 1690 metres and despite drawing the outside of the front row we are expecting Dreamy to continue her good form.  Let’s hope that this is a winning result for Yorkshire Park. Stylish Icon (by For A Reason) continues on her return and all reports from trainer Paul Campbell are positive as she looks to take the next step and qualify at the trials.  It has been a long road with this 2 year old filly but we are making progress and hope to see a race track debut in the very near future. Yorkshire Park’s other 2 YO filly I Can Dream returned to the John Hay’s stable at Ashburton in New Zealand recently and will continue on her campaign to the race track in New Zealand.  The break has done Roxy really well and we look forward to her taking the next step in her racing preparation. Great to see Go Home Jo (by Roll With Joe) qualify for the 2 year old fillies NSW Breeders Challenge final at Menangle on the 24th June, 2016 drawing barrier five in the $127,500 event.  Go Home Jo is out of the Yorkshire Park mare Ima Ritzi Lombo and is trained by Shane Tritton at Menangle.  She did a terrific job in the semi final finishing sixth after coming from a long way back in a slick 1.54.2 after drawing barrier nine.  Let’s hope that she gets a good run in transit and finishes in the placings.  On that note a big congratulations to Shane and Lauren on their recent wedding and Yorkshire Park wishes them all the best in the future. Great to see a couple of our trainers doing well with a number of winners recently.  Paul Campbell has Miss Dreamin in terrific form after winning the MO Platinum Series heat at Melton recently followed up with a slashing second in the final.  Ima Julian also saluted for the Campbell barn at Ararat after a great drive from Paul to get the gelding home. Graham Lyon has also been in good form not only with Watch The Dream but also with Getthenet and Chalcis who recently won the Mooroopna Trotters Cup first up from a long break.  With a number of good performers on the way back including Maybetothemax and some new additions to the stable all looks good for the Graham Lyon stable. A big congratulations to Stuart Valentine on the recent purchase of the 2 YO trotting gelding Custodian in New Zealand who will make his way to the Amanda Turnbull and Nathan Jack stable shortly.  Not every day you make a purchase that comes out and wins the 2YO Trotting Ruby Harness Jewells race on one of the biggest days racing in New Zealand. The Harness Jewells race day is one of the biggest in New Zealand and to win such a race will no doubt one of the highlights in any ones racing life time.   If you are looking for a horse out of New Zealand or just looking for a horse full stop don’t hesitate to give Stuart a call.  Yorkshire Park has continued to work with Stuart in purchasing quality horses out of New Zealand (Watch The Dream, Whitney H and I Can Dream) and we can highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a horse.  Contact Stuart at www.standarbredsllinone.com.au.   That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update May,2016

News, News, News Watch The Dream will make her racetrack return on the 24th May at Shepparton for new trainer Graham Lyon from  Kyabram to be driven by Damian Wilson.  Yorkshire Park is excited to see the Bettors Delight mare back at the races and look forward to a strong performance after two very good trials.  “Go Dreamy” On the injury update Whitney H has fully recovered from her operation on her pastern and is now enjoying time out in the paddock.  While we won’t see her back at the race track the Changeover mare will head to the breeding barn this coming season most likely to be served by Art Major.  A big thanks to Dr Alistair McLean and his daughter Elizabeth for taking such good care of Whitney.   News Update: Watch The Dream went to the trials at Shepparton last week, her first hit out for the Graham Lyon stables, and I’m pleased to say she didn’t let us down in the way she performed.  Finishing second beaten  3 metres to the well performed San Carlo in 1.59.5 last half in 57.7 driven by Damien Wilson she will certainly take improvement out of the trial.  On the back of that we will trial her again this Thursday (12th) at Shepparton and with improvement in condition we will look to find a race for her in the next couple of weeks. Pearlescent in the John Caldow stables heads back to the trials at Melton tomorrow (10th) after an indifferent trial a couple of weeks ago.  We will be looking for an improved performance from the daughter of Art Major tomorrow before hopefully making her racetrack debut. Stylish Icon (For A Reason) will most likely go for a spell in the next week or so and we are thinking that a month break will do her the world of good.  She has come a long way in her first preparation and she certainly shows positive signs for her racing future. Artful Christian (Major In Art) leased to Chris & Peter Svanosio is also on the return to the race track following two very good performances in his first racing preparation.  Great to see Chris back working horses after his recent illness and we wish him all the very best in his ongoing recovery. The first of our foals have been weaned and we will now commence the process for the next group which will start next Saturday 14th.  In this lot will be colts by Sportswriter, Courage Under Fire, Pet Rock and Auckland Reactor. Yorkshire Park is having a reduction sale with mares in foal to Village Jolt, Mr. Feelgood, Lincoln Royal and Rock N Roll Heaven all being put up for sale.  If anyone is interested please give us a call and we will be happy to talk to you about what is on offer.  Refer to our sales section of this web site. That’s about it for now.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update April,2016

Update 19th April, 2016 During the week we had the sad news that our only filly this year out of Vickymurphy by A Rock N Roll Dance succumb to a severe infection in the stomach and bowel and unfortunately couldn’t be saved.  It all happened so quickly with no initial signs of anything being wrong but within a few hours she was in real trouble and despite the efforts of our vets we were unable to save the filly.  It’s a sad time when these type of things happen and we all feel a little down after a tough couple of days. On a brighter note Pearlescent (Art Major – Lombo Socialite) leased to John & Maree Caldow heads back to the work outs today at Melton and hopefully we will see her at the race track very shortly.  Last night at Bendigo we also had our 2 Y O filly by For A Reason – Our Suicide Blonde who has been named “Stylish Icon” went to the work outs which is a real  milestone for this filly.  She will now head to the trials on Sunday to qualify.  This has been a real positive story given the challenges we have had with this filly an the concerns we had for her in the early stages.  To think she has progressed this far is a big win and congratulations to Paul & Maree Campbell for their persistence. Watch The Dream has settled in well at Graham Lyon’s stable and we will see her at the races very shortly.  And finally to the owners of All Done Up who contests the 1st semi final of the APG 2YO fillies heats at Menangle on Saturday night Yorkshire Park wish you all the very best in your quest to make the final the following Saturday night.  Despite getting the horror draw of barrier 10 we hope that with a bit of luck she will get a good run in the race and look to be running on in the event.   UPDATE 10th April, 2016  All Done Up (Mach Three – My Little Black Dress) sold at the 2015 APG Yearling sales in Melbourne by Yorkshire Park duly saluted with a first start victory at Melton on Friday night (8th) in the first heat of the 2YO Fillies APG series over 1720 metres.  Taking a sit behind the leader All Done Up peeled off the back of the leader at the top of the straight to win by a head in 1.59.3 driven by Michael Bellman.  While she is not very big in size she was very impressive and will take further improvement from the run.  A well gaited and efficient pacing filly she will head to Menangle on the 23rd April to contest the semi finals of the APG series. Watch The Dream arrived at the Graham Lyon stable on Thursday following her last run at Menangle when she led and just got run down in the straight to finish second in 1.55.5 over the mile trip.  She looks a treat and a big thank you to Shane & Lauren for the way they have looked after the mare during he stint in Sydney.   News, News, News – April, 2016.   A bit quieter time for Yorkshire Park at the moment with our 2015 foals coming along nicely and our two year olds starting to take shape under the guidance of our trainers.   Great to see our yearling Major In Art colt has found a new home having been purchased recently by Mal Whiteford.  We certainly wish the new owners all the best with him as he is a lovely colt with a real presence about him.  Mal reported that he was progressing well when he was breaking him in and liked him so much that he purchased him.  We will watch with anticipation as he progresses through his racing career.  Good luck to Mal and the team at Moama. Planning is still coming along with the move of Yorkshire Park operations to the new Kyneton property later in July 2016.  It is a busy time organising the move but I’m really looking forward to the day when we have everything in the one spot.   Update on the Racing Scene: Watch The Dream will have her last run for the Shane Tritton stable on Monday 4th April following a mixed return to the race track over the last month or so.  She has found it difficult to win in recent times and despite some unbelievable times the inconsistent performances have been a bit of a concern.  From all reports she looks a treat, is working well but things are not working out at the races.  Following discussions with Shane we have decided to bring her back to Victoria where she will join the Graham Lyon stable at Kyabram for a couple of months before most likely heading to the breeding barn.  Hopefully the different environment might spark her racing performances but if not then the decision becomes pretty easy.  So fingers crossed for Monday as we hope for Shane & Luaren’s sake she puts it all together to finish off with a win. Good to see a number of our 2014 sales representatives appearing at the trials or races in recent times.  Go Home Jo (out of Ima Ritzi Lombo), All Done Up (out of My Little Black Dress) and Pearlescent (out of Lombo Socialite) all have qualified to race the most recent being All Done Up who is now in the Vince Valellonga stable who qualified at Melton recently.  Go Home Jo already placed in her two starts will trial at Menangle on Monday 4th and Pearlescent with the Caldow stable is on track for a trials return in a fortnight or so. Yorkshire Park’s only 2YO in work at the moment a filly by For A Reason out of Our Suicide Blonde progresses well under the guidance of Paul Campbell and hopefully will grace the trials in the

News Update March 16

  News, News, News – March, 2016.   Plenty of work to be done at the moment as we prepare to relocate Yorkshire Park to our new property in Kyneton over the coming months.  This will give us the opportunity to have everything in the one location which will work out well in the longer term. Great news on the recovery of Whitney H as she has now had her bandages removed and out in a smaller paddock as she continues to do well under the care of Alistair and Elizabeth McLean. All looks to have gone extremely well with the operation for a fractured pastern and we will continue to monitor her progress over the next 3 months. We are very grateful for the care she has been receiving which has made the recovery process so much better. Our Major In Art yearling colt is progressing well under the guidance of Mal Whitford who is breaking him in for us.  Mal reports that the horse has a great temperament and manners and will be easy to train.  Today he went into the cart for the first time with no major dramas.  Sammy as we call him is for sale so any one interested should contact Yorkshire Park to arrange an inspection or to drive the colt. Our For A Reason 2 YO filly is also coming along well under the guidance of Paul Campbell at Maiden Gully.  This is a pleasing result to date given she had a few issues with her back in the early stages.  This filly will also be on the market but we want to make sure she is 100% ok before progressing to a sale stage. Update on the Racing Scene: Watch The Dream continues on her racing campaign with a promising 3rd on Tuesday 1st March at Menangle in a heat of the City Trainers series with the $20,000 final being contested on the 11th March, 2016.  From barrier three Dreamy worked into a good position behind the leader before getting clear with about 80 metres to go and finishing off in a 27.0 quarter in an overall mile rate of 1.55.0 beaten 5 metres.  We will certainly be looking for a good draw in the final and a bit of luck to go with it next Friday week. Good to see Social Fireball back at the track with a good third recently at Maryborough in a heat of the Need For Speed series.  This coming Thursday night she will contest the semi final at Bendigo over a mile drawing well in gate two and hopefully can find her way on the 12th March, 2016. Update on Broodmares:  Not a lot to report on the broodmare scene other than Jewell Bromac missing getting in foal this season.  We will now concentrate on getting her back in foal early next season along with Lombo Socialite who also missed this year.  Next step will be the process of weaning the foals off the mares in early April.  This is always a good time for some early education for the foals. Our Sundon mare Sixty plus will be returning to Australia in a fortnight following confirmation that she is in foal to Majestic Son.  We look forward to having her back in Australia.   PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sales Results: Last Saturday I returned home from a week in New Zealand attending the PGG Wrightson yearling sales in Christchurch.  Once again it was a good trip on all fronts with Yorkshire Park picking up a filly by Roll With Joe out of the Group One winning mare Turkana.  Named “I’m So Lucky” the filly presented really well and we look forward to her being broken in under the guidance of John Hay at Ashburton NZ.  Yorkshire Park also purchase another filly by Mach Three out of Caitlin Banner a sister to the very good Group One winning mare Mainland Banner which has been on sold to new owners based in NZ and to be trained by Nathan Williamson at Invercargill.  A big congratulations to the breeders in New Zealand for the way in which they present their horses for sale and also to PGG Wrightson for the continued excellence in the sales process.    That’s about it for now. Good luck and good punting.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update February 16

  News, News, News – February, 2016. “YORKSHIRE PARK ON THE MOVE:” The big news for Yorkshire Park has now been confirmed with our breeding operation moving to a new location in July 2016.  Negotiations have been completed for the purchase of the property just south of Kyneton on 53 acres all set up a ready to go with a six box barn, day yards, round yard, horse wash, 7 spelling paddocks with walk in walk out boxes and a large rear paddock for spelling broodmares.  In addition it has an equestrian riding arena, tack room and plenty of machinery and hay shedding.  The property also has 500 established olive trees.  We will now work through the process of moving our current operation to the new property in July.  (Photos to follow shortly).   Update on the Racing Scene: Great to see My Aliyana salute the judge recently for the owners bringing up win number 13 for a prize money total of $63,723.  Along with her 13 wins have come 20 placings in what has been a successful racing career for the mare. Watch The Dream will be trialling this week most likely at Menangle and we certainly look forward to the 4 Y O mare making her return to the track.  All reports are that she has been working well following her issues with a virus and we can’t wait to see the talented mare back at the track. On Wednesday night at Bathurst “Go Home Jo” a two year old by Roll With Joe out of our mare Ima Ritzi Lombo will make her race track debut at Bathurst in the Harness Breeders NSW Princess series over 1730 metres.  Despite drawing awkwardly on the second row we expect her to perform well based on her trial form.  To be driven by trainer Jarrod Alchin we certainly wish the owners all the very best.  What is interesting is that she hardly attracted a bid at last years APG sales and was subsequently sold a couple of months later by Yorkshire Park following being broken in a showing some ability.  Fingers crossed that she performs well. Changeover Fella will also venture back to the race track Thursday night at Northam in WA once again drawing poorly on the second row.  We hope to see a big improvement from him on his last couple of runs.   Update on Broodmares:   Not a lot to report on the broodmare side of things although we expect to see Jewell Bromac, Lombo Socialite and Sixty Plus all to be confirmed in foal.   An interesting note is the performance of Jewell Bromac’s half sister Juliette Bromac  (Art Major) in winning the Group 3 Rising Stars Final at Melton on Hunter Cup night.  A very talented filly who has won 8 and been placed 9 times from her 20 race starts and from the very good mare Jillbo.   APG 2016 Yearling Sales Results: A big day yesterday (7th February) at the Melbourne yearling sales as Yorkshire Park presented two fillies for sale.  Both looked fantastic and a real big thank you must go to Blanche & Dean Poole and staff for the effort they put in to have them presented so well for potential buyers.  The good news is both fillies sold and both reached or passed their reserve price which is always pleasing.  Even more importantly both going to good trainers with the Auckland Reactor filly heading to Shepparton under the care of David Farrar and the Falcon Seelster filly heading to Ballarat under the care of Emma Stewart and Clayton Tonkin.  General Update:  With the Melbourne APG sale finished for another year Yorkshire Park will turn its attention to the PGG Wrightson yearling sales in New Zealand in the coming weeks.  Part of our trip to New Zealand will include a visit to see our 2 Y O filly “I Can Dream” at John Hay’s stable at Ashburton.  We are once again looking forward to being at Christchurch for the sales. Whitney H continues her recovery from the fractured pastern under the care of Alistair & Elizabeth McLean.  The cast has been removed but she remains boxed for another week or two before going to a smaller paddock.  We are really pleased with how things are going and we will have the injury x rayed again in a couple of weeks to monitor it’s healing. Finally we have leased our Major In Art – Back Cover Lover 2YO to new owners in Ballarat so we will look forward to her progression in the coming months. That’s about it for now. Good luck and good punting.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.                                                        

News Update January 16

  News, News, News – January, 2016. Welcome back to the Yorkshire Park Standardbreds monthly update after a few weeks of time off to celebrate and welcome in the New Year and set our sites on the sales season which is quickly approaching.  It’s pleasing to report that both our entries for this years Australian Pacing Gold sales in Melbourne on February 7th are both progressing well and thanks to the hard work of Dean & Blanche Poole already look a treat.  You can view both our entries at www.apgold.com.au and look for Lot 45, Auckland Reactor – My Little Black Dress filly and Lot 119 our Falcon Seelster – Vickymurphy filly.  A big well done to Australian Pacing Gold in offering the opportunity to breeders to advertise under their new on line guide which provides potential buyers with all the information they need and it’s a great sales opportunity for the vendors of yearlings involved.  Can’t wait until the 7th February to see how the fillies go but I’m really pleased we are getting plenty of inquiry about both of them. On the sales scene I can also report that our Lincoln Royal – Our Suicide Blonde filly has been sold privately and will be heading to South Australia to commence her racing career.  We wish the new owners all the very best with her (Sarah) in the future.  We still have our Major In Art – She’s In Vogue yearling colt for sale and why wouldn’t you want a Major In Art at the moment with impressive performers on both sides of the Tasman.  Take a look at “The Cultures” run at Melton the other night in 1.51.6 and also Lucky Lombo win number six out of seven starts plus Brallos Pass terrific second in the Derby heats at Ballarat.  All by Major In Art and all very impressive racing performances.  Good luck to Mark Watson and the team from Kyabram with Brallos Pass in Saturday nights Victoria Derby Final worth $200,000. Update on the Racing Scene: We did have some bad recently when our talented mare Whitney H went amiss in training fracturing a pastern on the off side.  This was devastating news for John & Maree Caldow and the Yorkshire Park team as the mare had a very bright future and had returned to racing with an impressive win at Maryborough followed by an unlucky second at Ballarat.  A big thank you to all at the John & Maree Caldow stable for the way in which they cared for the mare in the early stages of the injury.  Whitney H has since been operated on by Dr Alistair Maclean who placed four screws in the pastern to secure the fractures and allow for the healing process to take place.  I can report that Whitney is doing really well placing pressure on  her cast so while the racing side of things looks extremely doubtful we will still have her later on as a broodmare.  She will be confined to a box for 8 weeks under the care of Alistair and his daughter Elizabeth on her road to recovery.  More updates will follow. Watch The Dream (Shane Tritton stable) is close to a return to the race track while our NZ two year old I Can Dream will head to the paddock at the end of the month for a well deserved spell.   I can also report that our two year old Art Major filly out of Lombo Socialite who is leased to John & Maree had her first trial recently at Melton.  Stepping out over the 1720 metre distance she came from back in the field to win her trial impressively in 2.4.2 by a head running the last half in 59.1 and the final 400 metres in 28.4.  She will now head to the paddock for six weeks before returning to make her race track debut all going well.  Go Home Jo a two year old filly by Roll With Joe out of Ima Ritzi Lombo sold by Yorkshire Park makes her debut at the trials at Menangle on Friday (29th) under the care of Jarrod Alchin.   Interestingly we had no interest for her at the sales but from all reports she is showing plenty of ability for her new owners. Update on Broodmares:   All our foals are on the ground and doing well despite the odd challenge here and there.  The majority of our broodmares are back in foal with a couple yet to be confirmed as being in foal.  Check out the broodmare section of our web site for details.  My pick of the foals to date would be the Alta Christiano and Pet Rock colts who look really impressive types.  Take a look at the photos section to make a judgement call yourself.  I would be interested to get your feedback. As yet we haven’t given our foals stable names so stay tuned to a little competition we will have to name the foals via face book. General Update: I will be off to the PGG Wrightson New Zealand Yearling sales at Christchurch later in February, 2016 to take a look at what is on offer and generally catch up with some of the breeders to discuss all things sales and breeding.  I will also head down to Ashburton to the John Hay stables to check on the progress of our 2 Year old filly I Can Dream. And some big news on the way for Yorkshire Park – stay tuned to what will be an exciting new beginning for all the team and our breeding operations.    Good luck and good punting.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update December 15

Update: Racing Scene Winners, Winners, Winners. Whitney H wins first up at Maryborough in a heat of the VHRSC Snowball Series in impressive style on Thursday 17th December in 2.0.3 last half in 58.3.  On to the final at Ballarat on the 26th December. Union Ally (part owned by Brenda, Claire & Ashlee) wins in impressive style at Kilmore on Wednesday 16th December in 2.1.1 after a masterful drive by Grant Campbell.  Update Foals: – Finally the last of our foals has arrived a colt by Auckland Reactor out of the New Zealand mare Jewel Bromac a daughter of the very well performed Jillbo.  That leaves us with six colts and one filly for the season. Update Mares: My Little Black Dress – positive test to Rock N Roll Heaven. Yorkshire Park wish everyone a very merry Xmas and a happy and prosperous new year.   News, News, News – December, 2015. It is amazing how quickly the year gets away as we head towards X Mas and face up to the New Year.  On the foaling scene we have two new foals, both colts, one by Sportswriter out of Rock Me Gently born on the 1st December and the other by Courage Under Fire out of Lombo Socialite born on the 14th December.  That only leaves one to go with Jewell Bromac due to foal to Auckland Reactor any day now.  So far the score is five colts and one filly, all doing well. On the racing scene it is great to have Whitney H back as she makes her return at Maryborough on Thursday 17th December drawn ideally in barrier one.  Of the back of a good trial at Kilmore recently we are hopeful that she can continue her form when last in work. Social Fireball also makes her return to the track at Maryborough for Brooke Hanson and Gavin Lang drawn barrier one in Race One.  Let’s hope the Yorkshire Park bred filly can make a good return to the track.  The Courage Under Fire colt born this week is a full brother to Social Fireball. Great to see some past Yorkshire Park bred horses doing well with Aitutaki winning at Echuca last week and My Aliyana finishing fifth in her return at Newcastle last week also. Great to hear also that I Can Dream our two year old in NZ is still on track and progressing well.  Trainer John Hay is happy with how she is going and hopefully she can continue to take the next step. Really good news from Shane Tritton also that Watch The Dream has overcome her virus and is now back in work and doing well.  The mail is that while she had a little time off she did add some kilos which wont do her any harm at all.   Mares with breeding positives to date: Shes In Vogue – positive to Lincoln Royal Vicky Murphy – positive to Western Terror. Ima Ritzi Lombo – positive to Village Jolt. La Tonneralla – positive to Angus Hall. Don’t forget to look out for our two fillies entered in the APG Melbourne sale in early February, 2016.  Both fillies are doing well and will head to Blanche & Dean Poole’s to be prepared for the sales straight after X Mas. Lot no 45 is the Auckland Reactor – My Little Black Dress Filly Lot no 119 is the Falcon Seelster – Vickymurphy Filly. Head to www.apgold.com.au web site to view all the details.   Good luck and good punting.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.

News Update November 15

There is no doubt in harness racing that you can very quickly experience the highs and lows in the industry and we certainly have felt that over the last few days.  No sooner had we received confirmation that our Somebeachsomewhere – Lombo Socialite colt would be in the Melbourne APG sale in February 2016 we experienced the heart wrenching phone call that he had injured himself badly in a paddock accident and had to be put down.  This was a tough day all round for the Yorkshire Park team as we were looking forward to presenting him at the APG sale.  Thanks to the girls at Northern Rivers Vet Clinic for their support who were terrific in their support and assistance. On the plus side we will also be presenting two fillies in the Melbourne APG sale, a Falcon Seelster filly out of Vickymurphy and an Auckland Reactor filly out of My Little Black Dress.  Both of these fillies will be prepared by Blanche Poole at Rhiannon Park and we will provide further updates on their progress as they enter the sales preparation stage straight after xmas. On the racing scene we have been thrilled with the first up run of Artful Christian when second at his first race start at Terang followed by a fast finishing fifth at Cranbourne a week later trained and driven by Chris Svanosio.  Leased to Peter Svanosio by Yorkshire Park this three year old gelding acquitted himself well at Terang and Cranbourne.  Watch The Dream continues to perform well and she must be near a win shortly after finishing with four seconds and a third from her last six starts. Unfortunately trainer Shane Tritton has had to back off her work due to a virus but hopefully she will be back in full work shortly. Good reports on the progress of Whitney H from the John & Maree Caldow stable with a trial expected shortly before making her race track return in the coming weeks.  Yorkshire Park also leased a 2 year old Art Major filly (out of Lombo Socialite) to the Caldow stable and her progression has been pleasing as well.  Looking forward to how this filly progresses. On the breeding scene we still have three mares to foal, Rock Me Gently to Sportswriter, Lombo Socialite to Courage Under Fire and the NZ mare Jewel Bromac to Auckland Reactor.  Hopefully some good news in the very near future.  I had a look at our foals this year on the weekend and all a growing and doing well.  The three colts by Majestic Son, Alta Christiano and Petrock plus a filly by A Rock n Roll Dance (photos availbale shortly). I can also report that we have the following mares with 15 day positive test for this breeding season: Shes In Vogue – positive to Lincoln Royal My Little Black Dress – positive to Rock n Roll Heaven. Vicky Murphy – positive to Western Terror. Ima Ritzi Lombo – positive to Village Jolt.   Good luck and good punting.   Talk soon.   Yorkshire Park team.
