Singapore Success for LA Clients
Nothing beats the racing and breeding industry for the wonderful relationships it generates, which is why there was extra satisfaction at LA following wins in Singapore on Sunday to horses bred by two of our most loyal clients.
Purchased from our 2012 Karaka Select draft and re-sold eight months later at the Ready To Run Sale, the Gilbert family bred Cheetah King (Towkay-Jabeske by Prized) recorded his fifth Singapore win when successful over 1600m.
The lightly raced LA and Bryan Hutchinson bred four-year-old Muscular Dragon (Iffraaj-Sunbrease by Towkay) hinted at considerable turf track potential with a commanding win on his debut on the grass, over 1400m. Muscular Dragon is the first foal of a Towkay daughter of the Sound Reason mare Reasonable, a mare Tom and Buzz purchased as a yearling at Trentham in partnership with Bryan and Don Gordon.

Shedding the title of the best maiden galloper in New Zealand in style, Saracino, who became Per Incanto’s fourth individual stakeswinner with Saturdays emphatic win, is expected to follow a similar path to Per Incanto’s group 1 winner Dal Cielo last season and target the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.
Saracino’s win followed a treble for Per Incanto at Thursday’s Woodville meeting.
And Towkay rounded off a great Saturday for the farm siring a double at the Premier meeting at Riccarton. Backing-up from an easy win on Wednesday, diminutive mare Heni (Towkay-Bahhzaar by Bahhare) ran out a comfortable winner in her open class debut, with trainer Mike Breslin set to give the six-year-old mare her opportunity in upcoming black-type mares events.
Treble for Per Incanto
Three winners on the same card sired by one stallion is a relatively rare achievement. To accomplish it twice within six months takes some doing which is exactly what Per Incanto managed at the Woodvi... Read More...
