Seven HB wins in the past week 25 Jul 2012

Hawke’s Bay thoroughbred owners and trainers have experienced a tremendous past week, with seven winners either prepared on the Hastings track or raced by people from the district.

Short Of Cents, Bondi Tram, Pearls and The Miner’s Son were Hawke’s Bay-trained winners on their local track last Thursday while Addictive Habit, a winner at Tauranga last Wednesday, and Thrive and Trapiche, successful at New Plymouth and Ruakaka respectively on Saturday, all have Hawke’s Bay owners.

Addictive Habit created a huge impression when scoring a 1-1/2 length debut win in the 1200-metre two-year-old event at Tauranga. The Colombia gelding credited his sire with just his second juvenile winner and showed he possesses more than a little of the ability of his famous relation Rough Habit.

Addictive Habit was bred by Hawke’s Bay couple Graham and Isabell Roddick, who race the two-year-old in partnership with a group of family members and friends that are all first time racehorse owners. He is out of the Sky Chase mare Chasing The Habit, who is a half-sister to the champion Rough Habit, winner of 29 races and more than $5million in stakemoney.

Addictive Habit is trained at Cambridge by Lee Somervell, whose stables are close to where Rough Habit is spending his retirement days. He says there are plenty of similarities between the two horses.

Addictive Habit coped well with the heavy-10 track conditions at Tauranga but Somervell expects him to be even better suited by firmer footing and is now aiming him at the listed $50,000 Ryder Stakes (1200m) at Otaki next Saturday.

Havelock North couple Richard and Liz Wood have experienced a dream run as owners of last season’s New Zealand Horse of the Year, Jimmy Choux, and now look to have another rising star.

The Woods, through their company Chouxmaani Investments Limited, race the filly Bondi Tram who also created a big impression when winning at last Thursday’s Hawke’s Bay meeting.

The Woods paid $9000 for Bondi Tram as a yearling at the 2010 Karaka Festival sale. She is by Fast ‘N’ Famous out of the Centaine mare Centakin and traces back to the family of the outstanding Australian sprinter and successful sire Luskin Star. The mare Centakin is now dead but she won three races and has had eight foals to race, seven of them winners.

Jonathan Riddell rode Bondi Tram to win last Thursday and was suitably impressed with the horse’s performance to come from third last on the home turn and win by half a head.

“At the 200 I thought I was going to run a good fourth or fifth but when I gave her a hit with the stick she went whoosh,” he said.

Bondi Tram dived between horses in the final few strides to snatch victory off her stablemate Sunseka. Both horses are trained at Hastings by John Bary.

Central Hawke’s Bay couple Garry and Jan Sherratt celebrated another winner that they bred and own when Short Of Cents took out the 2100-metre maiden at the Hawke’s Bay meeting.

The Sherratts have raced their own horses for many years and achieved plenty of success with the top jumpers Just Not Cricket and Proposition.

Short Of Cents is trained on the Hastings track by Patrick Campbell and was having her seventh start when she managed to stave off the challengers of two other Hastings-trained gallopers, Barmasai and No Commission, for a half-head win.

She is a six-year-old mare by D’Cash out of the unraced Corrupt mare Allegation, who is a full-sister to Politic, who won four races for the Sherratts.

Hastings-trained Pearls fulfilled the promise she showed in three starts earlier this year with a decisive two length win in a maiden 1400-metre race at Hastings last Thursday.

The Sudurka filly recorded a fourth, a third and a fifth from her first three starts before trainers Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen decided to give her a short spell. She resumed on a winning note and should now go on to much better things.

Pearls is a three-year-old by Sudurka out of the Prized mare Pare and owned by Taupo couple Pat and Jane Lowry, parents of the horse’s co-trainer.

Not many horses win their next start out of maidens but The Miner’s Son did it in style with a gutsy performance in the Rating 65 1400-metre race at Hastings last Thursday.

The Gold Mine three-year-old broke through maiden ranks with a front running display over 1200 metres at Wanganui on July 12 and was just as strong over an extra 200 metres last week, leading all the way for a long head victory.

The Miner’s Son is trained by Waipukurau-based David Goldsbury, who races the horse in partnership with his wife Anne. They bought the gelding in a private sale from Hallmark Stud.

Thrive, bred and part-owned by Hawke’s Bay Racing Incorporated board member Ken Browne, added to her impressive record with another good win in a $25,000 Rating 75 1800-metre race at Saturday’s Taranaki meeting.

It was the Colombia mare’s third success from just six starts and she has also recorded two third placings.

Browne bred Thrive out of the Paris Opera mare Trove and races her in partnership with Te Akau Racing’s chief David Ellis. The mare is prepared by Te Akau stables trainer Jason Bridgman at Matamata.

Thrive is a member of a family that Browne has had 13 wins from over the years. Her dam Trove won two races and is a half-sister to the winners Strive and Gusto. Since Thrive was born she has produced a three-year-old colt and a two-year-old colt by Gold Centre and is now in foal to Per Incanto.

Trapiche added to a successful winter for Taradale racehorse owner Judith Buckeridge when he scored a dominant three-quarter length win in a $25,000 open sprint over 1200 metres at Saturday’s Whangarei meeting.

Buckeridge is a member of a group that races Trapiche from the Te Awamutu stable of Richard Otto, with the trainer also among the shareholders. She also shares in the ownership of the Otto-trainer Ourforeignminister, who returned to his best form with a win over 1600 metres at Tauranga on June 23 and followed that up with another victory in the Te Awamutu Cup (1580m) on July 7.

Trapiche was having his third start back from a spell and recorded his sixth win from 29 starts. The Sandtrap four-year-old was a $25,000 purchase from the festival session at the 2009 Karaka yearling sales.

Graeme Lowe racing enthusiast

Legendary Hawke’s Bay businessman Graeme Lowe, who died last week, was also a successful thoroughbred owner-breeder.

Lowe, who was 77, raced horses for more than 30 years with his best success being Singing Star’s win in the 2004 Group 2 Waikato Cup (2400m). She won eight races in total and Lowe bred her out of the Crested Wave mare Jelignite Jen.

Other winners produced by Jelignite Jen were Yeah Nah, Brave Flyer and Big Grump Grae.

The latter gave Lowe another racing highlight when successful in a maiden race at a Hawke’s Bay meeting in January, 2010. It was the owner’s first ever win on his home track and he picked up another one there a month later when Randy Andy was also successful.

Bary pair show out at Hastings jumpouts 20 Jul 2012

Easy wins by The John Bary-trained pair of Enuffisenuff and The Knight were the highlights at today’s Hastings jumpouts.

There were six heats run on the course proper, where the ground provided dead footing.

Enuffisenuff cruised to a 2 length win in the second of two 1000-metre heats, recording a good time of 1:4.4. Rider Jonathan Riddell had a good hold of her throughout. The Howbaddouwantit mare has not raced for three months but looks to have done a lot of work and should be ready to perform well when she resumes on raceday.

The Knight only got home by a neck in his 750-metre heat but also looked to be doing it very easily at the finish and his time of 46.8s was easily the fastest of the three heats over this distance. The No Excuse Needed gelding has also not raced since April but is likely to resume at the Hawke’s Bay meeting on August 6.

Jumpout results

Heat 1, 400m: Helmsman 2yr-old gelding (S Rennie) 1, Savabeel-Demerara yearling gelding 2, Danroad 2yr-old gelding 3. Six starters. Margins: ½ length, head. Time: 27.9s. Winner trained by Kirsty Lawrence, Waipukurau.

Solid Steal aimed at Great Northern 18 Jul 2012

The $100,000 Great Northern Steeplechase (6400m) on September 8 is now on the agenda for star Hastings jumper Solid Steal after he annihilated his rivals in Saturday’s minor steeplechase race at the Wellington meeting.

The rising 13-year-old took out the $20,000 Norm Bevan Memorial Steeples (4000m) by 22 lengths, surging to a clear lead before the last fence and racing right away from his six rivals in the run to the line. His winning margin could have been even more but rider Jonathan Riddell was easing him down towards the finish.

It was shades of two years ago when the Paul Nelson-trained grey spread-eagled his opposition to win the Wellington Hurdles (3400m) by 5 lengths, also with Riddell aboard.

Solid Steal was recording his sixth win on Saturday and his first from four starts as a steeplechaser. He had previously recorded three minor placings over the big fences, including a second behind Lord Custom in last month’s Manawatu Steeples (4400m).

The Corrupt gelding is raced by the 30-member I See Red Syndicate, a group of mainly Hawke’s Bay people which is managed by Nelson’s son Gus and Hastings city councillor Mick Lester. More than a dozen of the syndicate members and partners were on course to cheer him to victory on Saturday.

Nelson was both elated and relieved that the horse had been able to regain winning form, his first victory since the Wellington Hurdles triumph at the same meeting two years ago.

Nelson said he thinks Solid Steal would be an ideal horse for the Great Northern Steeples, a gruelling 6400-metre event where the runners have to negotiate the famous Ellerslie three times, and will use the $35,000 Pakuranga Hunt Cup (4900m) at Ellerslie on August 25 as a lead-up race.

“I think he’s a genuine northern horse and I’ll see if we need to have another run or go straight into the Pakuranga Hunt Cup from here,” Nelson said.

Solid Steal is out of the Three Legs mare Taas. He was bred by Hawke’s Bay’s Arthur Ormond, whose son Marcus trained the horse to win his first race on the flat.

Sea King rules again

Sea King, part-owned by his central Hawke’s Bay breeder Sue Harty, furthered his impressive record as a jumper with a 2-3/4 length win in the minor hurdle race at Saturday’s Wellington meeting.

The Shinko King five-year-old was having his fourth start over hurdles and now has a record of two wins and two thirds.

Harty races the gelding in partnership with Otaki trainer Rachael Frost and Auckland-based Chris O’Reilly and he has now won four races from 19 starts.

O’Reilly got special satisfaction out of Saturday’s success as it was the first time he had been on course when the horse has won. It was also the first time his family colours had been carried in a race at Trentham for 50 years.

Sea King, who is out of the Prince Of Praise mare Ocean Princess, was originally prepared at Otaki by Rachael Frost but was transferred to the stable of Wanganui trainer Kevin Myers earlier this year to further the horse’s education as a jumper.

Bulls jockey Jo Rathbone has been aboard Sea King in his two hurdle wins and says the horse still has a bit to learn but has a big future as a jumper.

“His attention wanders a bit and that’s why you have to keep at him during his races,” Rathbone said.

“He’s pretty tough though and could be a hope in a race like the Grand National Hurdles.”

Trainer’s first win

Waipukurau-based David Goldsbury celebrated his first training success when The Miner’s Son broke through for a maiden win over 1200 metres at Wanganui last Thursday.

Goldsbury mainly concentrates on breaking in and pre-training horses for other trainers but has had a permit to train licence for a couple of years. The Miner’s Son is one of two horses he has in full work at the moment and he races the three-year-old in partnership with his wife Anne. They bought the Gold Mine gelding privately from Hallmark Stud.

The Miner’s Son had gone close to winning in the past, with a second, a third, a fourth and a fifth from eight previous starts. Rider Rory Hutchings jumped him away quickly from the barrier at Wanganui and he trailed the leader to the home turn before taking control and holding on to win by three-quarters of a length.

The gelding will now step up in distance and grade in a Rating 65 1400-metre event at tomorrow’s Hawke’s Bay meeting.

Second success

Takapau thoroughbred owner-breeder Jenny Dalby looks to have another promising galloper in I Am Leo, who chalked up his second win from his last four starts when taking out a Rating 65 race over 1340 metres at last Thursday’s Wanganui meeting.

Dalby has raced a number of well performed gallopers over the years, including the former smart sprinter-miler Milo.

She bred I Am Leo, who is by Riviera out of the Oregon mare Tabitha.

The four-year-old was initially trained by Stephen Marsh but when he closed his Woodville stable at the end of last month the horse was transferred to Kevin Gray at Palmerston North.

He was having his first start from the new base at Wanganui last week and scored by 3-1/4 lengths.

Hastings Trackwork 12 Jul 2012

Intransigent showed he is going to be a force to be reckoned with in Saturday’s Parliamentary Handicap with a strong solo gallop at this morning’s Hastings track session.

Fast work was confined to the plough, which provided good footing.

Intransigent had trainer Kirsty Lawrence aboard when running 1000 metres in 1:2.9. He clocked 26.5 for the first 400 metres and then came home the last 600 strongly in 36.9.

The Refuse To Bend five-year-old has obviously trained on the right way since his fourth over 2100 metres at Awapuni last Saturday, which was his first race for three weeks. He had to lump 59kg in that event and drops to 55.5kg on Saturday and is likely to strike his favourite heavy track conditions.

One of his race-rivals, Our Destiny, was restricted to just pacework this morning. He galloped over 1400 metres in trackwork yesterday and was timed to run his last 1000 metres in 1:4 and final 600 in 39. He is another who won’t mind a heavy track on Saturday.

Whoopi Gee, preparing for a Rating 65 1400-metre race at Hastings next Thursday, strode out well over 800 metres in 51.3, the last 600 in 37.8. She probably found track conditions just a bit too firm for her at Hastings last start.

Midnight Paddle started three lengths in front of London Bridge when they left the 1000-metre peg and was still marginally in front at the finish, clocking 1:5, the last 600 ion 38.1.

Destiny Cove had trainer Katrina Alexander aboard when running a solo 1000 metres in 1:2.2, the last 600 in 36.1. The Dubai Destination mare was the winner of two races on the Pukekohe track in late 2010 and was then campaigned in Australia, where she was placed over 1900 metres on the Canterbury track.

Speed Up, preparing for the special conditions hurdle race at Trentham on Saturday, had trainer Tim Symes aboard when running two rounds of half-pace this morning. Shaun Phelan has been booked to ride him.

HB owner’s enthusiasm rewarded with cup win 11 Jul 2012

Taradale racehorse owner Judith Buckeridge has never missed being on course when her star galloper Ourforeignminister has won and she is already planning another trip north at the end of this month to watch him race again.

   Buckeridge is passionate about her horses and made the trek to Te Awamutu on Saturday to watch the Dubai Destination gelding contest the $25,000 Freight Lines Te Awamutu Cup. She and some of the other seven shareholders in the five-year-old were certainly vocal as they cheered him on to a 1-1/4 length victory.

   It was the horse’s seventh win from 26 starts and he is now being aimed at the listed $80,000 Taumarunui Cup (2100m) at Te Rapa on July 28. And Buckeridge says she will be there again to see him run.

   “I think I have only missed being on course for two of his starts and that was because I was overseas,” Buckeridge said on Monday.

   “It was really exciting on Saturday.”

   Ourforeignminister has turned his form around in the past fortnight, with two wins in a row after a run of lack-lustre efforts.

   Buckeridge said the horse had a few minor problems when he first came back into work this campaign but that his Te Awamutu trainer, Richard Otto, had now ironed those out and he is now a happy and contented horse.

   “He pulled up well after the race on Saturday and ate up everything that night and he’s just a happy horse again,” Buckeridge added.

   Ourforeignminister was one of two horses Buckeridge had racing at Saturday’s Waipa meeting, the other being Trapiche who finished a creditable sixth in the open sprint over 1150 metres.

   “He also went well because he had never raced on a heavy-10 track before so he showed he’s pretty versatile,” she said.

   Buckeridge, who was formerly based in the Wairarapa, has been racing horses since the early 1980s and has won in excess of 30 races. The first horse she raced was Peace Seeker, whom she bred, and he won four races from the Tauherenikau stable of the late Jack Walker.

   “I’ve raced at least another 10 since then and I’ve been fortunate that just about every one of them has won,” she added.

   Buckeridge is also heavily involved in New Zealand equestrian circles and is secretary of her local rotary club.

Voodoo casts the right spell

   Voodoo, part-owned by Hastings man Peter Johnson, recorded her fourth win when scoring an easy 2-1/2 length victory in a $10,000 Rating 75 race over 1600 metres at last Friday’s Ashburton meeting.

   Johnson is a member of the Voodoo Syndicate that races the Pins mare in partnership with her Riccarton trainer Mike McCann.

   Voodoo was having her fourth start in a new campaign, following a third and two fifths. She won two races in the space of three starts earlier this season.

Stud presentation

   Rich Hill Stud, the new Waikato home of former star Hastings galloper Jimmy Choux, will conduct a presentation on its stallions for the upcoming breeding season at the Hastings Hibernian Club from 11am this Sunday, June 15.

   Rich Hill managing director John Thompson will be in attendance for the  presentation, along with head studgroom Mike Rennie. It is open to the general public and a light luncheon will be available.

   Jimmy Choux, a five time Group 1 race winner who amassed more than $3million in stakemoney, will be the new stallion at Rich Hill Stud this year where he will stand alongside the proven sires Pentire and Any Suggestion and the Melbourne Cup winner Shocking.

   Jimmy Choux, who is still majority owned by Hawke’s Bay couple Richard and Liz Wood, will be standing at a fee of $10,000 plus GST in his first year at stud.

Bus trip planned

   The Hawke’s Bay-Poverty Bay branch of New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders will be putting on a special bus trip to Masterton’s Little Avondale Stud on Sunday, July 22.

   Little Avondale Stud stands the proven sire Towkay and also has two new stallions in Per Incanto and Nadeem.

   The bus will leave Sunday morning and return that afternoon and is open to the general public at a fee of $35/head. Those who attend will be able to view the stud’s three stallions as well as partaking in a luncheon at the stud.

   Those interested in making the trip are asked to phone either Shirin Wood at 871-0050 or Isabell Roddick at 879-8662.    

Curran bags two wins

   Former Hastings-based apprentice jockey Hayley Curran has enjoyed a successful past week, kicking home two winners in the space of two days.

   Curran picked up a chance ride on Aruritson in the maiden hurdle race at last Wednesday’s Cambridge meeting at Te Rapa after the horse’s original rider, Daniel Oakden, failed to get a medical clearance in time to take the mount. Curran took the five-year-old Yamanin Vital gelding to an early lead in the 2400-metre event and they were never headed, crossing the line 5-1/2 lengths clear of the opposition.

   She then rode at the Waverley meeting the next day where she guided Wotabuzz to a 4 length win in a 2200-metre jumpers' flat and has now ridden four winners from 20 race-rides.

   Curran is nowadays attached to the Awapuni stable of Wotabuzz’s trainer Mark Oulaghan but originally started out in the Hastings stable of Dianne Sergeant before working for a time for another Hastings trainer, John Bary.

   Oulaghan prepares Wotabuzz and Curran was also aboard when the His Royal Highness gelding was successful over hurdles at Trentham last month. The seven-year-old is now expected to contest the $50,000 Wellington Hurdles (3400m) on the same track this Saturday.

Double for Coastal Mist

   Coastal Mist, bred by Central Hawke’s Bay woman Sue Harty, made it two wins from two starts this winter with another game performance in a Rating 75 1200-metre event at last Thursday’s Waverley meeting.

   The Handsome Ransom five-year-old was originally raced by Harty and won her first race at Wanganui in October last year. But Foxton trainer Heather Weller took over the ownership earlier this year and she has now had two starts for her for two wins.

   Coastal Mist is out of the Blues Traveller mare Blue Pacific, who has also left this season’s promising three-year-old Urunga.

Track Report 3 Jul 2012

A strong 800-metre gallop by Enuffisenuff was the highlight in a quiet trackwork session at Hastings this morning.

There was very little in the way of fast work, which was confined to the plough (slow).

Enuffisenuff stretched out keenly over 800 metres in 51.2, the last 600 in 37.7. The Howbaddouwantit mare hasn’t raced for a couple of months but looks in good order and ready to resume.

No Excuse Maggie worked on her own over 1200 metres in 1:26.9, coming home the last 600 in 40.8. Trainer John Bary did not appear satisfied that the mare had done enough in the workout and sent her over another 600 metres, which she was timed to run in 40.5.

The grey mare is a likely starter in the open 2100-metre race at this Saturday’s Manawatu meeting, which could serve as a lead-up to the listed $80,000 Taumarunui Cup (2100m) at Te Rapa on July 28.

Our Destiny, a winner at Tauherenikau last Thursday, was let off with an easy 1000 metres in 1:6, the last 600 in 40.5. He looks to have taken no harm from that run and will now be aimed at the $40,000 Parliamentary Handicap (2200m) at Trentham on Saturday week.

Commett worked in at three-quarter pace from the 1000-metre peg in 1:8.5, running the first 400 metres in 29.7 and then quickening over the last 600 in 38.8. The No Excuse Needed three-year-old hasn’t raced since finishing last of eight runners over 1400 metres at Te Aroha on April 7.

A Zed two-year-old and one by Perfectly Ready, both in the Lowry/Cullen stable, were not doing much more than three-quarter pace when running 600 metres in 44.2.

Racing: Hastings jumpouts

Bary horses win four from six at Hastings jumpouts

Hastings trainer John Bary dominated today’s Hastings jumpouts, winning four of the six heats and finishing a close second in another.

The jumpouts were held up against the running rail on the course proper, which provided dead footing.

The Bary-trained Karmazyn and Lady Kirkwood were impressive winners of two of the 750-metre heats, both horses recording a quick time. Jonathan Riddell rode both of them and also won the 400-metre heat on the Bary-trained Diamond Forever and one of the 1000-metre heats on a Fast ‘N’ Famous-Centakin three-year-old from the same stable.

Karmazyn clocked 46.4s when winning his heat by 3-1/2 lengths. He is a two-year-old gelding by Volksraad who finished fourth on debut over 1200 metres at Hastings on May 4. Second home in this heat was Trap The Boyz, a promising Sandtrap filly trained by Theoni Morgan.

Lady Kirkwood proved too slick for her three rivals in another 750-metre heat, winning by 2-3/4 lengths in a time of 46.9. A Viking Ruler two-year-old gelding in the stable of Kelly Burne finished second.

The Fast ‘N’ Famous three-year-old from the Bary stable and a Scaredee Cat-Nanuk three-year-old filly trained by Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen fought out the finish of the first 1000-metre heat, with the Fast ‘N’ Famous three-year-old drawing clear over the final stages to clock a time of 1:2.3.

There was only a head separating the Kelly Burne-trained Peit Rox and Basildon Road, from the Bary stable, at the finish of the other 1000-metre heat which was run in 1:3.9. Both horses have shown ability on race day with Peit Rox having recorded two thirds and two fourths from eight starts and Basildon Bond one third and two fourths from four starts.

A Sandtrap-Pennies In Heaven gelding was also impressive when winning his 750-metre heat by 4 lengths in a time of 48.7. The three-year-old is trained by John Bridge and is a half-brother to the good performer Single Currency (six wins).

Jumpout results.-

Heat 1, 400m: Diamond Forever (J Riddell) 1, Bachelor Duke 3yr-old filly 2. Two starters. Margin: 8l. Time: 25.2s. Winner trained by John Bary, Hastings.
