It is a busy and exciting time of year for all thoroughbred enthusiasts.
The Caulfield Cup has now been run and won by Southern Speed. She is trained by one of our long time trainers and good friend in Leon Macdonald. Congratulations to Leon, his training partner Andrew Gluyas and all the team in Adelaide. (Nb. Shelley did tip Southern Speed to anyone that would listen)
Leon has trained many horses for us over the years, the most notable would be the Ballarat Cup winner Make A Scene, and he currently trains Star Topaze in Hancox Racing No 4 and a Strategic filly in Hancox Racing No 5 Ltd.
We are currently selling shares in Hancox Racing No 5, click on the Syndicates tab at the top of the page for details - 6 horses, 6 Trainers in 4 states for only $990. It certainly is AFFORDABLE RACEHORSE OWNERSHIP.
Cox Plate this weekend and then onto Flemington for the four day carnival.
We had a good winner at Ballarat on the 5th October when Danzoya saluted in a Showcase race. He has had some minor issues during the prep. and was starting to test his owners' patience before the impressive win.
We have plenty of horses racing in coming weeks. A few to watch out for are Ariston, Danzoya, Spirit Of Many, El Of A Time, Grey Pegasus and Balayeur.
