Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock horses win in Mildura
History was made this week in Mildura when three gallopers in Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock horse syndicates won their races.
All three horses Ca Plane, Misty Sea and Pique were trained by the legendary Darren Weir and won their Maiden races. Pique and Misty Sea were bred by Darren Dance and his wife Liz, making the day especially sweet for them.
The winning combination of ATB’s good breeding, and Darren Weir’s placement and polish again bring home the results.
Dean Yendall was the jockey who brought Ca Plane past the winning post by almost four lengths in the 2000m Maiden. What a treat! This was a big turnaround after an unsuccessful effort at Ararat the week before. The horse wore blinkers and Dean made an early move into the lead to help Pour Moi’s son win the race in outstanding form.
Pique was also ridden by Dean Yendall and won only by a nose. He was positioned well, just off the speed and looked safe to win when the home straight was entered, but he had to pull out all stops to get the job done.
Misty Sea rounded out the triple with an impressive win as a comeback horse. The rider was Declan Bates who replaced Jarrod Lorensini who had a fall recently at Echuca. The new jockey managed to get Misty Sea into the fourth position after a slow start, just behind those in the lead. As they turned for home, Misty opened up the taps and ran away with a win of three lengths.
As a trainer Darren Weir was recently awarded these trophies:
Metropolitan Trainers’ Premiership (137 wins)
Victorian Trainers’ Premiership – (416 wins)
At the same awards night Dean Yendall picked up this trophy:
Victorian Jockeys’ Premiership – (138 wins)
Clearly Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock has associations with the best in the industry and that converts to good results for those in the horse racing syndicates they operate.
