Stallions Shine in June
WINNERS for Dandino (GB) and Warhorse (NZ) plus work galore for the upcoming breeding season.
All done for the 2020 crop of foals. Our weanlings get compliments from the transport drivers on how easy they are to load and transport. A great compliment from people who deal with these youngsters on a regular basis. The time that is invested in the handling of the weanlings leads to easier and less stressful farrier and drenching and of course transport. A great pat on the back to all the staff involved during this process.
If you are thinking about a stallion for your mare, don’t forget to give us a call. It is economical to go to a Bombora Downs stallion and we have sprinters, middle distance and staying stock.
The May newsletter said, “More wins must be just around the corner” and the wins have come in June. QUICK ’N’ DANDY (x Quick Notice) started the ball rolling with a win at Wangaratta over 1600m. SAVVY DAN (x Savvy Kingstonette (NZ)) followed with a dominant win at Northam over 2200m and followed that win with an ever so close 2nd at Belmont mid-week. DANCIN' DUDE (x Rockin’ Ransom) brought up a very profitable win for the punters at Coonamble over 1600m. Then lastly but not least BARRINGTON MANOR (x Xaar Best) saluted at Cranbourne over 2000m.
Dandino (GB) also had 3 debutantes during June having excuses in their runs. The progeny of Dandino (GB) are starting to fly their dad’s flag with 5 individual winners, 3 placegetters from 15 starters.
Another winner – CONGE (x Tiny Belle), saluted at Port Augusta after notching up 5 seconds in her career. That’s the 6th winner for his 2nd crop, a total of 16 winners overall from his first 2 crops.
Not an easy month for the Jungle Ruler’s. Caught in traffic, scratched at the barriers, caught on the rails on very wet tracks, all led to some disappointing results.
AEROPORT (x Varone) was able to run into the placings at Murray Bridge. Little by little he is getting closer to a win.
Around the Farm
General maintenance as well as new fencing is happening in readiness for the upcoming season. It is just over 7 weeks to go before the first of the 2021 foals are due (by the way it is 25 weeks until Christmas as well!!).
