HOT OFF THE PRESS:  4 win Christchurch based pacing mare for sale.  Comes in as a NR50 and on cheap import fee.  NZ$20,000 ONO.

LAST WEEK was week thirty eight of our 2022 Punters Corner Charity Tipping Competition and thanks to Chris the guys got back in the winner’s circle after a couple of weeks of misses.

Chris was very keen on Major Jarod in race five at Albion Park last Saturday night and the four-year-old son of Art Major (USA) duly got the money at $1.90 on the Queensland tote.

The Methven Magpie's tip of Oscar Bonavena, in the big trot at Motukarara last Sunday, went a super race for second paying $2.30 a place and he has his foot firmly on the till with a winning turn very close.

Unfortunately, Mark's best bet for last week in the well-travelled Highview Sadler NZ got caught back on the fence and never got into things, in the second last race of the day at Menangle yesterday.

As we go into week thirty-nine The Magpie still leads the way in our annual tipping comp with $487.00 banked followed by Chris now with $333.00 and Mark on $318.50.

CHRIS -

Friday @ Addington Race 8 No.6 WILD WILLOW

A first starter from the All Stars operation is always worthy of respect, in particular, an exceptionally well-bred youngster boasting solid trial/workout form.

Nat Rasmussen takes the drive and looks a terrific chance.

Follow closely!

As soon as we hear from Mark and The Magpie we shall have their selections up.

Best regards to all.

THE NOW Darren Elder trained Rosberg NZ won his initial Australian race last Friday night at Newcastle which was just reward after being outed in a protest earlier in the month on his debut at Menangle.

The three-year-old son of A Rocknroll Dance (USA) was purchased out of the Christchurch stable of Mark Jones by the Elder stable in early July and on Friday nights win, it won’t be Rosberg NZ last.

OTHERS TO BE successful during the last seven days, that like Rosberg NZ were purchased through our books out of New Zealand, included Arco NZ, the Brad Hewitt trained Bosch NZ, Ideal Tiger NZ at Redcliffe, Hiranya NZ, Alcippes Delight NZ, The KerryAnn Morris trained Fear Crusin NZ, Albion Park winner Lady Avana NZ and Splash Of Crimson NZ at Eugowra yesterday who has now won all of her three Australian starts to date, since joining the Bathurst stable of Amanda Turnbull.

Another winner was Romanee NZ at Menangle on Saturday night with Wattlebank Lass NZ running second and Yuko NZ in fourth place, which were also ex-kiwi buys that had been organized through us.

IT IS RUMORED that the entrants for the Brisbane Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling Sale to be held at the Magic Million complex in March next year has closed, with over one hundred and fifty yearlings nominated to go through the ring.

If that’s the case, it makes the sale very strong numbers wise and many will be wondering how many yearlings were nominated by breeders for the Brisbane Australian Pacing Gold Sale that is planned for February.

Both companies are disappointing in not having their websites updated regularly to keep their vendors and prospective buyers informed on what is happening within each organization, yearling sales wise.

Entrants for both sales have closed over a month ago but not one word written by either company on how many entrants are nominated for each sale, along with any relative news.

CONGRATULATIONS TO astute Cambridge trainer / driver Nicky Chilcott on training her five hundredth winner at Alexandra Park on Friday night.

Winning with the trotter Phoebe Majestic in the opening race to bring up win number five hundred, later in the night another winner was produced by the stable in pacer Blazing Louie to take out race five.

There were a couple of nice horses behind Blazing Louie and the son of Sweet Lou (USA) is a real big chance to add to the trainers tally in the weeks ahead.

Congratulations from us Nicky on your great achievement – Well deserved !!

IF YOU HAVE missed the Greg O’Connor hosted “One On One” podcast featuring now near Brisbane based multiple Group 1 winning trainer Tim Butt, then go to the HRNZ website.

It’s a good watch and confirms what a terrific horseman Tim has been over the years when listening to all of the very good horses he has trained.

The way Tim’s team is starting to put together winners from his new Queensland base at Toorbul, the list of real nice horses wearing his well-recognized colours you would have to think it hasn’t ended by a longshot.

Once his babies start filtering through in the next two or three seasons the stable will be a real force in Queensland feature races.

SPEAKING OF good stables, we note Ashburton trainer Brent White has brought his son Tim in as his training partner.

The father and son partnership didn’t take long to find their first winner, as American Ideal (USA) three-year-old Bobby Waterhouse was successful at yesterday’s grass track meeting at Motukarara.

A dab hand at the lawn bowling game, Tim will be looking forward to many more winners in the years ahead and this week should see the stable welcome back Cranbourne at the races. 

The stable star is nominated for this Friday nights 2600m Free For All at Addington.

WE NOTE that bargain buy Plutonium NZ ran a most creditable second at Gloucester Park to the very good pacer Lavra Joe (1.53.5, 26 wins, $416,269) on Friday night in a $30,000 Free For All.

He’s doing a super job and must have his ex-kiwi connections shaking their heads.

Great hopes came with the horse but nothing to the extent the son of Auckland Reactor has achieved to date.

GREAT TO see the win of Ideal Dance NZ at Wagga on Friday night as a first up winner for trainer David Micallef with his son Blake taking the reins.

Coming out of the Shepparton stable of Russell Jack, after only two starts since being purchased from New Zealand, Leeton based owner Michael Boots offered the son of A Rocknroll Dance (USA) to the Micallef stable and they have achieved instant success.

Let’s hope it’s the start of a long and fruitful owner / trainer relationship.

THE RECENT terrific run of winners driven by Bathurst’s Amanda Turnbull continued yesterday at Eugowra, when she reined home five winners on the ten-race programme.

They included the ex-Mid Canterbury owned and trained three-year-old Splash Of Crimson NZ, who now has won all of his three Australian starts to date, continuing the great record that Ashburton trainer Terry McMillan has in selling winners to Australia, including Group I winning champion trotter Tornado Valley NZ (1.53.1 T, 39 wins and $1,033,977).

ON THE horse movement side, sees last week’s impressive two year old qualifier Chivalry NZ purchased straight after out of the Bob Butt stable and is heading next week to Victoria.

Fletch Maguire NZ has been purchased by a South Australia stable out of the Mike Berger stable and maiden trotter Shakemjenny NZ is on the plane heading to West Australia this Wednesday, after her unlucky run at Alexandra Park last Friday night.

The previously Rod MacKenzie trained Questro Queen NZ, flew to Sydney yesterday to join the Bathurst stable of Wendy and Jason Turnbull and the Mid Canterbury trained Wavethebill NZ, is also shortly to make New South Wales his new home.

We wish all purchasers all the very best with their new pride and joys.

TRUST EVERYONE has a great week coming up and everyone keeps fit and well.
