Per Incanto Continues Strong Start
Another two impressive winners at last week’s Cambridge trials continue the momentum built by Per Incanto (Street Cry-Pappa Reale by Indian Ridge), arguing well for more solid results for vendors with his stock at the National Ready to Run Sale at Karaka this week.
An unnamed colt from Sound Lover won his 650m heat in the fastest time of the morning, spreading his opponents out like brown’s cows with a staggering 15 lengths to the third horse. The LA bred colt was bought from our 2014 Karaka Premier draft by Michael Wallace.
An impressive trial winner at Waipa in October, Rocanto (Per Incanto-Romantic Liaisons by King of Kings) again had the commentator lauding his ability when successful in his 800m event in the fastest time of the day. Bred by Justice Lowell Goddard, the colt was sold from our 2013 Karaka Weanling Sale draft.
Per Incanto has nine entries at the Ready To Run Sale including the colt from Towkay mare Double Okay who has the equal third fastest breeze-up time. Click on any of the below to see the LA Breeze Up's for the Ready To Run Sales consigned by Lyndhurst Farm, Diamond Lodge and Beatson Stables

MANU: Too Big, Too Quick
Well rated in front by Kelly Myers, Manu (Darci Brahma – Sporty Spice by Carneige) was a comprehensive winner of the feature event at Hastings on Sunday.
Trainer Roydon Bergerson and his team deserve a lot of credit for the win, the fifth of Manu’s career. The LA owned galloper hasn’t helped himself in the past by galloping too fiercely but has returned this season a much more settled horse.
Three-year-old colt Lupo Nero (Nadeem – Huntington Girl by Black Zephyr) looks set for better things judging by his six and a half length win on debut in Queensland last Wednesday.
Although unable to emulate her illustrious ancestress Sanderae in landing the Wakeful/VRC Oaks double, Thunder Lady (Mastercraftsman – Thunderchine by Thunder Gulch) reinforced the unique Classic ability of the extended family with a gallant second in the Group 1 VRC Oaks last Thursday.
Sanderae, the fourth dam of Thunder Lady and rising star Tie Me Down (Pins – Ashley Downs by Grosvenor) was bred and raced by Te Parae. Some of her other descendants include the group 1 winners Roman Emperor (AJC Derby), Black Mamba, Tully Thunder and Sandy’s Pleasure (VRC Oaks).
