Mark’s Mail – 14 December

Mark Chittick

We’ve had a busy week on the farm with a great bunch of visitors from New Zealand and Australia through to see our Karaka yearlings. It’s been great fun having people to the farm and we all thoroughly enjoy catching up with and seeing new and old friends at this time of year.

Congratulations to David Ellis, Jamie Richards and the team at Te Akau Racing for the very smart win with two-year-old Savabeel gelding Aotea Lad in the Group 2 Wakefield Stakes last weekend. David’s strike-rate with buying top performing progeny of Savabeel truly is second to none and it’s great to see Jamie’s training career really going from strength to strength.

Ocean Park has had an excellent week on the track, siring a double at Hastings and six winners in the last seven days. Adding to the great run our racing team has had recently was Ocean Park mare Together who won very well on Wednesday at Hastings.

We’re really looking forward to watching Love Affair in the Group 2 Cal Isuzu Stakes at Te Rapa tomorrow – happy racing everyone!

Cheers,

Mark
