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.
