Mark’s Mail – 14 September

Mark Chittick

There is a massive day of racing to look forward to on both sides of the Tasman tomorrow and there are a stack of Waikato Stud sired runners worth following. Good luck to Rupert Legh and the group of owners in O’Reilly colts Grunt and Brutal who are racing at Flemington and to the team at Te Akau who have Savabeel gelding Sword of Osman running in the Group 3 Northland Breeders Stakes at Ruakaka.

All the best to the connections of horses running this weekend, in particular, the connections of Stakes hopefuls Pacific, Sagunto, Madison Country, Sir Plush, Samovare, Santa Catarina, The Lord Mayor and Ocean Knight. We’ll be watching with plenty of interest!

We have just launched the Tivaci Foal Photo Competition which should be a bit of fun. We encourage everyone with a Tivaci foal arriving this spring to throw their hat in the ring as there’s an awesome prize pack up for grabs including a nomination to Tivaci and some limited edition Tivaci gear.

On the farm foaling is well underway, scanning is in full swing and we look forward to the first lot of pregnancy tests which will take place in just a couple of days’ time.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Cheers
Mark
