Mark’s Mail – 30 November

Mark Chittick

The breeding season might be winding down (we’ve just got one left in the foaling paddock) but the yearling side of our operation is just warming up. We’ve already had a few people to the farm to inspect yearlings and we have an action-packed month to look forward to in December.

We’ve had an excellent week on the track with a number of our race fillies/mares striking success in New Zealand and Australia. Thanks to everyone involved with these horses, it’s really exciting to get a few more winners on the board for our racing team.

It’s been really exciting to see the progeny of Sacred Falls really setting the standard. It’s very encouraging as a stud master to see them out there winning trials and doing everything right for their trainers. We’re all really looking forward to watching his first Australian starter make her debut at Moonee Valley this weekend, fingers crossed!

It has been another highly successful week for the progeny of our stallions – congratulations to everyone who has enjoyed success and in particular the connections of Pins gelding Pinzu who took out the Listed Carbine Club Stakes in Perth last weekend.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cheers
Mark
