    1.53.2 at Ballarat is a serious time
    3yo filly Art of Sheng Li has now won her last 3 starts (a respectable 4th at her first start back in December is her only loss)
    She comes from the very strong dam line of Patrician which includes Thefixer

    On my nostalgia trip still, I read that Tara Meadow was the first horse to break 2.00 minutes in Victoria (1970 TT) and what surprised me was the fact that she did not start racing until she was 5yo - a bit different from these times of speedy 2yo's

    A great mare, bold chestnut and one that got me hooked on the trots. Took her record in a time trial at Ballarat. George Gath officially trained her and drove her. She won a heat of the 1970 ID at the Melbourne Showgrounds and made the final. Her son Tara King (by Aachen) was Australia's highest priced yearling when sold at the Wright Stephenson Melbourne yearling sale for $17,000. While not a topliner he was a pretty handy horse for Rex Hocking.

    Good memories.

    One of Emma Stewart's second string 2yo's No Motive (no wins from 6 starts) runs 1.54.9 at Geelong, only 0.7 outside the Tk Rec - it is however quite an old record being set 3yrs ago
    She is well bred with mum being a half sis to Courage To Rule ($523k, a Vic Derby and a couple of NZ 2yo Gp1 2nds to Smiling Shard)

    You have to sympathize with Ron Angel, owner of 2yo Major Angel. His colt has probably run the 2nd fastest time for the card at Shep tonight, just as he did at Yarra Valley last week AND yet all his 2yo has to show for it, is two 2nds
    Gee the 2yo's have been quick this season
    (I am of course aware that in any other year we would be calling them 3yo's now)

    The Bull dominates them horses week in week out and if they can run those times how good is the Bull? Very attractive price in offer in Hunter Cup. He is Number 1 seed for mine.

    WOW!

    Just turned 3yo, Bondi Lockdown comes out in a 4 horse race at Charlton this morning (yes Morning as they started early to beat the heat)
    AND he wins by 67m and sets a new TK REC for 2100m while rating 1.55

    His 2nd dam Innocent Eyes boast a Chariots Of Fire among her 18 wins

    Catching up on Magnificent Storm's win at GP on Friday. Pretty dam easy for a run that was only 0.1 outside the Tk Rec

    ps For a non-punter I was fortunate enough to have a couple of dollars on Bondi Lockdown (previous post) at good odds on Saturday
