With the change of seasons and daylight savings finishing, its been a rush to complete some tasks and get other schedules organised before winter really sets in.

Thank heavens the mini-drought in the Waikato ended with some really good, consistent rainfalls, and while other areas of New Zealand (like our compatriots in Christchurch) have had to deal with flooding, we are just grateful to see the paddocks turning green again and the temperatures holding up to allow some decent grass growth.

One of the most enjoyable things about being breeders, is following the horses we’ve sold as they develop and race. The highlights in the past month or so have been two lovely wins by Destination Moon (Grinfromeartoear x Zenterfold) at our local Cambridge raceway, and then yesterday morning’s workouts in Cambridge we caught Angus Fogg (Angus Hall x Sun Isa) having a learners heat as a 2yo trotter – looking a very handsome fellow and getting around without any mistakes. He was bought at th 2013 sales by Lincoln Farms and trained by Ray Green, who intends just to keep giving him experience and education without any pressure to race early.

In both his wins at Cambridge, Destination Moon totally dominated the field and showed his very good speed at both ends of the races. He now has 5 wins and 5 places from 16 starts and just over $27,000 in stakes. Whether he will make it into the Harness Jewels field (Emerald) is hard to tell. With a good draw over a mile at Cambridge he would be a real chance to get in the money.

Photos below: Top, the winners circle on 27 March, with driver Josh Dickie and co-trainer Simon McMullan, and if you look carefully, there is a very proud breeder leaning over the picket fence behind Destination Moon.

Below that, is a shot taken during his race on 17 April.

Both photos were taken by Phil Williams of Fokus Harness Photography who records all the Cambridge races and does a fantastic job – check out the site at www.fokusharness.co.nz
