 Dean Holland and Luca Bratzi win at Bendigo


Congratulations to the owners of Luca Bratzi after the lad's victory in the very valuable VobisGold maiden at Bendigo under a canny Dean Holland ride.  Luca's dam Bonny Jeunesse was one of our stable favourites, winning for us twice, so it's fantastic to see her son following in her footsteps.



Arachne and Jordan Childs fight bravely to defy all challengers at Swan Hill


Farewell to one of stable favourites ARACHNE  who has now been retired to stud. After joining us as a maiden from Tasmania, the courageous little mare racked up 5 wins and 9 seconds for the stable, amassing over 130K in prizemoney.  Let's hope she can produce progeny as good as herself for her owners and breeders the Schaeche family.




Dean Yendall and Glifi Nifin Arkis surge clear at Ballarat



It's the circle of life as Glifi Nifin Arkis wins his first race by 3.25l at Ballarat.  Seems only yesterday we saddled his mother Eljobonn to win by a similar margin at Wangaratta......



Eljobonn and Linda Meech win easily at Wang in 2010
