1:51.5! Simply stunning

Maori Time set the trotting world abuzz with her amazing 1:51.5 triumph in the Group 1 $50,000 NSW Trotters Mile at Menangle, slicing 1.7 seconds off the former Australasian mile record.

Aldebaran Park, who owns Maori Time’s dam, Sundonna, is offering a full brother to Australasian’s fastest ever trotter as Lot 55, Aldebaran Stephan, at the Australasian Premier Trotting Sale at Tabcorp Park Melton on March 11.  

The grand looking colt is one of the 12-strong draft being offered by our farm at the sale.  Aldebaran Park is offering stylishly-bred yearlings by the top sires Muscle Hill, Andover Hall, Angus Hall, Trixton, Pegasus Spur, Skyvalley and Yield Boko.

On the subject of yearling sales, Aldebaran Park was active at the New Zealand sales at Karaka and Christchurch. At the NZ Premier Trotting Sale we secured three lots in Scenic Flight Nz (Muscle Hill-Triple A) Filly for NZ$40,000, You’re So Vain (Love You-Focus On Me) Colt for NZ$40,000 for a stable client and Musha Cay Nz (Dream Vacation-Chiola Belle) Filly for NZ$25,000, while at the Australasian Classic Sale we Heezadoosie Nz (Muscle Hill – Love Ya Doosie) on behalf of a stable client  for NZ$65,000.

Aldebaran Tess Nz, the Muscle Hill filly out of Solar Powered Nz, who was offered and failed to reach her reserve price in Christchurch, has returned to Victoria and will be trained by Matt Craven.

February was another big month for Aldebaran Park bred or owned stock on both sides of the Tasman. Aldebaran Ay M (ex Big O E) scored at Melton and in a heat of the Lyn McPherson Memorial Breed For Speed Gold Series at Shepparton, Aldeabaran Broozer Nz came off a 30 metre handicap to post his maiden success at Globe Derby Park, the two-year-old colt Carlton Nz (ex Another Love Nz) won on debut at Addington and Tiavons Dream won twice at Melton including a career-best 1:57.9 effort and now earned more than $110,000.

Our leading sire Skyvalley Nz was represented by six individual winners of seven races in Victoria and NZ in February. Bonny mare Sky Petite provided the highlight coming off the back mark of 40 metres to capture the Connelly Crystal Bucket at Echuca, leading in a Skyvalley Nz quinella with Kyvalley Boomerang second.

The three-year-old Kyvalley Finn won at Ballarat and Geelong, Rift Valley chalked up win No 9 at Melton, Aldebaran Pirate and Picketts Ridge Nz notched their first wins at Ballarat and Gore, NZ respectively, while the three-year-old War Admiral Nzmade it three wins from eight starts at Winton, NZ.

A leg of the Aldebaran Park Monte Championship was staged at Melton with victory going to Save Our Pennys for the Graeme Lang-Haley Toulmin combination.
