Holstein chalks up tough win on debut at Warwick Farm
Snitzel gelding Holstein was an impressive winner at Warwick Farm on debut yesterday and looks to have a very promising future ahead.
He was a little slow out of the gates and caught wide majority of the early part of the race, however he was too tough for his opposition in the straight to be the deserved winner.
Trainer Matt Dunn was full of praise for Holstein “He did plenty of work and was a sitting duck in the straight for a run-on horse, however he was too classy. Most pleasing thing is that he has massive improvement in him both mentally and physically moving forward. We won’t see the best of him until he is a 3-year-old and gets over more ground. Holstein is an exciting horse for the ownership group and no doubt he can progress on to stakes races and above"
Plan is to see how Holstein pulls up over the next few days before making a decision on whether to give him a break or press onto races over the Brisbane Winter Carnival.
Viva Racing punching above it’s weight
Holstein’s win yesterday continues Viva Racing’s solid 20/21 season where we continue to strike at above 20% winners and 45% place.
Our focus has been on improving the quality of yearlings each year in partnership with respected bloodstock agent Neil Jenkinson. This season we have had only four starts from our 2 year old’s with Subterranean and Holstein the only runners to date. Our record currently reads Brisbane metro placing, Brisbane quality winner, Group 3 placing and Warwick Farm winner.
These stats are outstanding for a small boutique syndication business.
We continue to buy the yearlings we like within our price range and won’t budge on quality just to fill the stable.
This season’s success to date is reaping the rewards of the hard work that goes into buying the best possible horses for our owners.
We appreciate the ongoing support of our owners and welcome new partners to join in the ownership of the current crop of yearlings available for sale www.vivaracing.com.au
