Tuesday, 22 October 2019 20:57

Flying machine Peak (Per Incanto-A Chance To Dream by Volksraad) was a most impressive winner for the Hawkes stable last week at Newcastle. Bought from last years Magic Millions, the LA bred colt came from last at the home turn, burning over his final 600m in a blistering 32.64.

Rotorua on Saturday saw another win by 4YO Tutta La Classe-Cantsaymydadsname by Almutawakel), her second from her last three starts. The Iain Marks trained mare looks to be returning to the form that saw her stakesplaced as a 2YO.

Also on Saturday, saw a well deserved win by the Goodwood Stud bred and Stephen Marsh trained mare Belle Fascino (Per Incanto-Playing For Keeps by Keeper) .

On Sunday at Otaki, another product of the Per Incanto-Keeper cross, Desert Magic (Per Incanto-Sahara by Keeper) was a decisive winner for trainer Mike Breslin. Fitter for his resuming run at New Plymouth, the 4YO looks in for an exciting campaign.

First and foremost, stockman and people whose interest in the animal translates into an innate ability to read how a horse will develop. I’ll see a foal at LA and Sam or Buzz will tell me how they expect it to develop. I’ll see it during my Karaka inspections 12 months later, and you could blow me over with a feather
