    Was at Albion Park last October, specifically to watch Terrorway go around in the Be Good Johnny Sprint, little did I realise he was only going to be a bit player that night. Destreos sat parked for half the race before allowing Terrorway roll to the death. Urged along down the back, off the bit on the bend, Destreos pulled three wide and put them all away...had to be one of his finest wins in 1.52.9 if you don't mind. I was down on the fence as they thundered past me, but for the length of the straight, the only thing I could hear were his connections perched in the top right hand corner of the grandstand screaming their guts out for him. The fact he was 33/1 that night may well have contributed to their volume. Now James, were you one of those noisy bastards drowning out Barsby that night lol?

    Hi James, Astonishing how he keeps on keeping on, Would love to have 1 just like him, I will Update his stats soon. Danno has a great story about Destreos and his Breeder and with a bit of luck, He will repeat it for those who missed it the first time.

    Danno's Destreos story,

    The missus and I were holidaying in NZ during the Interdom carnival in 2011, one night at the Club on the grounds of Alexandra Park I bumped into a really nice bloke, Bob McAuley, who told me he had sold the horse Destreos to Australia after having a more lucrative sale to US interests fall through due to the horse failing the VET TEST, there was a perceived soundness issue!!

    At the time Bob was bit dark about the whole thing because the horse had been racing in OZ for a couple of years and won over 100K, you can well imagine how dark he is now the horse has raced on like he has.....anyway I don't think I will ever trust the vet test, it obviously couldn't have been more wrong!

    cheers,
    Dan
