9-2-2020 – Van Diamond heads to the South Island this week and will commence training with the in form John and Karen Parsons at Balcairn. The Parsons have been in red hot form lately, the change of scenery and with plenty of beach work the Rip Van Winkle gelding should hopefully see a change in form.

3-2-2020 – The Good 3 track at Matamata yesterday was not to The Green Dragons liking and he never fired in the maiden 1400m. We are sure with some rain around we will see this Rothesay gelding true potential.

22-1-2020 – Pinmedown returns to Ellerslie on Saturday for the Collinsonforex Karaka Cup over 2200m. Matt Cameron will ride for the first time and on the back of a fast finishing run in the City of Auckland Cup the Pins mare should be right in contention. It is only a small field and tactics will play a major part in the outcome of the race.

18-1-2020 – 2yo Tokorangi has unfortunately been withdrawn from the 2yo Karaka Million race. The Redwood filly did pull up a little sore after her scorching 6.5 length win. While there are no major issues it is felt she would be better to have a break and return in the spring for what is likely to be a very exciting 3yo season.

7-1-20202yo Tokorangi completely blitzed the field at Matamata today and won the KB Bloodstock 1100m by a widening 6.5 length. She currently sits 12th on the order of entry for the Karaka 2yo Million dollar race. Some nervous owners will be looking at results over the next 8 days to see if the Redwood filly makes the race.
