Aldebaran Park bred and owned horses experienced success both on and off the track in April.

Aldebaran Vera T2 - 2.03.5 - $47,445.00 (Trixton USA - Kyvalley Aldebaran NZ) was named the joint winner of the 2YO Trotting Filly of the Year Award by the Victorian Square Trotters Association for 2021.

She was purchased by John Bootsman of Boko Stables Holland as a weanling when he visited Aldebaran Park as is raced on lease by prominent Swedish driver Sofia Arvidsson.

On the track Aldebaran Park bred winners in three different countries.

Undoubtedly the highlight was the win of Sonofamistery USA in the $US40,000 New Jersey Breeders Maturity in 1:53 at The Meadowlands. Co-bred by Aldebaran Park, he is a four-year-old entire by Muscle Hill from the world champion Mistery Woman Usa. Sonofamistery has now won seven races and more than $US220,000 in stakes.
