Skyvalley NZ winners everywhere! - August 2023

Aldebaran Park resident sire SKYVALLEY NZ had a red-letter month in August with seven winners in three different States!

Heading the vanguard was the homebred Aldebaran Gwen T 1.59.7 (ex Aspenglow USA), whose success at Globe Derby Park on August 26 was her ninth for the season and she is now the winningest Trotting mare in Australia to date in 2023.

SKYVALLEY NZ was also represented by the two-year-old Link In Bio and the three-year-old Kyvalley Anthony, who both won on the same night at Bendigo, the Melton winner Sellune, Watch And Act – 10 wins (Cobram), My Bad Habits (Globe Derby Park) and the Aldebaran Park bred Aldebaran Sundown – 7 wins (ex Aldebaran Sunset NZ) who won in Western Australia.

SKYVALLEY NZ also figured as the damsire of four winners for the month in the three-year-olds Majestic Mover and Fouroutoffive, Im Bobby and Super Service.

ALDEBARAN EAGLE USA, the current leading stakemoney sire of three-year-olds in Australia, produced a pair of homebred winners in Aldebaran Stiles (ex Sundonna), who posted back-to-back victories at Globe Derby, and Aldebaran Dexta (ex Aldebaran Deegan NZ) who also won at Globe Derby Park as well as talented three-year-old filly Dichotomy who won in Victoria.

Aldebaran Park bred six individual winners of seven races during August. The list includes Aldebaran Vera (ex Kyvalley Aldebaran NZ), Kyvalley Heist NZ (ex U Dream NZ), Aldebaran Gwen, Aldebaran Stiles, Aldebaran Sundown and Aldebaran Dexta.

We are eagerly awaiting the first crop of foals by our exciting young stallion DANCINGINTHEDARK USA.
