    Apparently it running late was due to the race before but nevertheless its original time was the same as a Shep race. You would have thought that for such a big race, Sky could have done better - even if it meant a split screen with a bloody dog race

    The All Stars domination continues under the name of Hayden Cullen - making up half the field they control the way the race is run
    The winner Akuta was far too good considering the moves he made early

    Akuta is the stand-out colt in NZ this season. You too, Kev, could have owned him had you stumped up the necessary $170k at the yearling sales. And, yes, Hayden Cullen had six runners because former All Stars owners have stuck fat with him and he has repaid their faith. One of those owners is a part-owner of Akuta - Mark Purdon.

    Wow did he really go for that. He must be an amazing looking athlete because a quick look does not reveal anything on the dam side. As you will see below the dam was unraced and she had not had much time to produce anything special before Akuta went through the ring. So you look at the 2nd dam but we have the same story there

    He is indeed an amazing looking athlete. A relative of mine was very keen on him having looked at him as a foal and a few weeks before the sale. Got a bit hot in the $ department.

    Avana (previous foal) would have no trouble handing out regular spankings to her age and sex at Melton.

    Trev, are you saying they have several fillies better than Ladies In Red (and Tough Tilly)?

    The final was another good contest between these two. Doug's Diva was in the death this time and put it to Encipher the whole way, maybe she doesn't like cover because you would have thought that after softening the fav up, Danielle Hill may have taken some cover on her back, what with the two of them being well clear of the rest of the field from the get-go and knowing that Encipher did not lack toughness after sitting outside her last time. Maybe they thought they could worry her out of it due to her inexperience - it would however have been interesting to see if Doug's Diva had more zip
    With the heat last week being her first ever start it is amazing to think that Encipher's time was only 1 sec off the Open Tk Rec

    No. But they are unlikely to be fronting up at Melton every week, are they?

    I was just trying to work out why Akuta would have sold for so much but on reflection regardless of how highly one rates the sister because she is only a year older she would not have been racing when he was sold so it is irrelevant to what I was seeking
