|October is always and exciting time for thoroughbred lovers with spring in the air and the racing carnivals on the mainland in full swing.
We would like to take the opportunity to both reflect on our recent results and introduce you to our newcomers in the foals of 2020.
Motree Thoroughbreds has enjoyed an incredible run since the new season kicked off with the victory of Madilogo on Wednesday night at Launceston bringing up our 11th win of the season thus far.
Highlights included the outstanding run of form from Up Wind and Artuso on the tapeta at Devonport who were both handled to perfection by Leanne Gaffney who has been on fire this season.
Banca Syd from the Scott Brunton yard also began to put it all together at Devonport saluting twice in our brand new Motree silks whilst the exciting First Accused made it two from two when winning his second Tasbred bonus from as many starts.
The connections of Turk Delight were also the recipients of a Tasbred bonus thanks to the impressive win by the son of Mawingo at Devonport.
There appears to be plenty more to come for the half brother to Uber Ed and we wish Glenn Stevenson and the team all the best for the upcoming summer carnival.
The most sentimental victory came from the Angela Brakey trained White Hawk who brought up his tenth career victory and a welcome tonic for Ange after her serious riding accident.
We also had the excitement of our first Motree bred Group 1 runner when Mandela Effect tackled the Rupert Clarke Stks at Caulfield.
Luckless in the run he turned in an outstanding performance to finish on the heels of the placegetters without seeing daylight in the straight.
Following an even performance in the Group 1 Toorak Hcp he has returned home to Seven Mile Beach to freshen up before being aimed towards a black type event at Sandown on the last day of the spring carnival.
Also nearing a return to the racetrack is our favourite grey, the John Blacker trained Glass Warrior.
Reports are the mare is in great order and is likely to have a run or two in the coming months before freshening for another cups campaign.
John is also very pleased with his Motree purchases from this years Magic Millions sales in both the War x Lustica and War x Spanish Symphony 2yo’s.
Both horses received excellent reports from the breakers before gaining further education at Longford and are now enjoying a well earned break in the paddock.
Shares are still available in both horses and we encourage anyone who is interested to head to https://www.jkbracing.com.au to find out more.
