ALDEBARAN PARK NEWS UPDATE APRIL 2018

Tornado Valley top of the pops!

SKYVALLEY’S outstanding son Tornado Valley NZ further strengthened his position as the No 1 trotter in the country with a string of Group 3 successes at Melton during April. He has now won six races on end.

The tough gelding started his winning streak in April by capturing the Sundon’s Gift Free-for-all on April 7 rating 1:57.6 over 2240 metres. A week later the six-year-old came off a 20 metre handicap to win the Coulter Crown with a 57.3 last 800 and followed up by taking out the Uncle Petrika Free-for-all in a career-best 1:56 over 1720 metres highlighted by a stunning 56.6 final half.

On each occasion Tornado Valley NZ sat parked throughout and ground his opposition into submission!
