    • The son of Broken Vow completed a successful raiding trip for trainer Steve Asmussen when he captured the $400,000 Prince of Wales Stakes July 23 at Fort Erie, denying Queen's Plate winner One Bad Boy a chance at the OLG Canadian Triple Crown. View the full article
    • Wanganui conditioner Raymond Connors will take a five-strong team to Awapuni on Thursday and the future paths for a number of his runners will be dictated by their performance at the Palmerston North track. Talented jumper Max will contest the LJ Hooker Hurdle (2750m) in preparation for a likely tilt at the Civil & Landfill Construction LTD Pakuranga Hunt Cup (4900m) at Ellerslie next month. The nine-year-old son of Gallant Guru has been in fine form of late, winning the McGregor Grant Steeplech... View the full article
    • Tone Broke, third behind both One Bad Boy and Avie’s Flatter in the Queen’s Plate at Woodbine June 29, finished fastest to turn the tables on his more heralded rivals in Tuesday evening’s middle jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. Perched out in the clear through splits of :23.50, :48.03 and 1:12.59 doled out by One Bad Boy, he was scrubbed on for a bit more as Avie’s Flatter ratcheted up the pressure on the frontrunner heading for home. Avie’s Flatter seized a narrow lead in upper stretch as One Bad Boy boxed on, but neither could match strides late with Tone Broke as he leveled off and kicked away over the top. Tone Broke romped by 15 1/4 lengths to graduate at third asking in a rained-off Remington Park heat back in September, and resurfaced to take an optional claimer there Nov. 23. Fourth behind subsequent graded stakes-winning stablemate Long Range Toddy (Take Charge Indy) in the Springboard Mile Dec. 16, he was subsequently brought to Meydan for two far-back finishes. The dark bay turned things around markedly since resurfacing Stateside–he was second behind King for a Day (Uncle Mo) in Pimlico’s restricted Sir Barton S., and was further flattered when that one bested Maximum Security (New Year’s Day) in the Pegasus S. at Monmouth. He was far from disgraced while trying a synthetic surface for the first time in the Queen’s Plate, and was shedding the blinkers this time after three outings with them on. The colt was also being reunited with Ricardo Santana, Jr., his Hall of Fame trainer’s go-to pilot and the rider aboard for the Sir Barton. This was Santana’s first time riding at Fort Erie. The winner’s dam is a half to the dam of Sean and Dorothy Fitzhenry’s Mr Havercamp (Court Vision), upset winner of the GIII Forbidden Apple S. on Saratoga’s opening day card. A year-younger full-sister to Tone Broke brought $210,000 at KEESEP from agents Solis and Litt and has been prepping for her debut at Woodbine, most recently covering a half-mile in :48 flat (4/21) over the Tapeta July 19. Mendocino Beano produced a Hard Spun filly last term. Stakes-winning ‘TDN Rising Star’ half-sister Stallion Heiress (Exchange Rate) was bought for $125,000 by SF Bloodstock and Newgate Farm at this year’s Keeneland January sale. Third dam Trishyde was a Group 2 winner in France and GSW/MGISP in the U.S. Tuesday, Fort Erie PRINCE OF WALES S., C$400,000, Fort Erie, 7-23, (C), 3yo, 1 3/16m, 1:56.56, ft. 1–TONE BROKE, 126, c, 3, by Broken Vow 1st Dam: Mendocino Beano (GSP), by Smart Strike 2nd Dam: Trishyde Slew, by Seattle Slew 3rd Dam: Trishyde, by Nureyev ($40,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP). 1ST BLACK-TYPE WIN.

    • I stand by what Reefton and I stated..however I take your point about costs.  That could/can be easily dealt with - if there's the will - logistics not a problem with appropriate planning. However,  that is all pie-in-the-sky if the ship sinks.
    • Freda, Reefton in making off the cuff statements that are clearly incorrect in defence of the status quo needed to be pointed out. The South Island is clearly not supporting the 1000 & 2000 Guineas races with horses numbers. The reason I brought it up is that there have been discussions over the last couple of years by trainers in the North is that these two races are clearly being filled by North Island horses and with the huge cost and logistics of getting to and back from Christchurch that these two races should be brought North. Those discussions became louder following the transport difficulties in getting horses down to Christchurch last November. Capacity fields actually do increase turnover and those two Guineas races are in all likelihood able to create more turnover run up North. It makes economic sense all round.
