  • It was a very special night at Addington last evening in many respects. A night that can only be described as Nigel Armstrong night. Small in stature, but with a big heart and big ideas, Nigel's filly Spellbound produced an emphatic winning performance on debut, while his fundraiser raised significant money for Peter Davis and Margo Nyhan to aid their recovery.

    Christchurch has been basking in the summer heat for some weeks and it is fitting that tonight's Summer Cup meeting has drawn a red hot card of talent. The stable are well represented through a number of the feature races including the Summer Cup and the Summer Trotting Free-For-All.

  • We just had the three runners engaged today at the Ashburton trials, but you could not help but be impressed with their efforts. A winning performance by Tyron's Bit Of A Lemon in 1.55.2 for the mile was an impressive effort.

  • Three year old trotter You Really Got Me looked one of the nicer two year olds going around last season with a third placing in the Group Three Sires Stakes his season highlight. His winning performance at Methven this afternoon suggests that he will again be competitive in the best company in some of the upcoming features.

  • Garta and Franco Niven were two highly regarded two year olds last season and showed up as a pair with a real future. Tomorrow at Amberley they make their season debut and after good trial runs last week, bold runs are expected from both.

  • Big team shines at trials
    After a quieter period over the last few weeks, a big team at Wednesday's Rangiora trials indicated that is all about to change. It was great to see some old faces back and getting ready to race, including Franco Cristiano (in picture) as well as the new crop of stars.

  • There has never been any doubting of the motor Kotare Yolande possesses. The question has been how long before the manners match up with the motor. Today at Geraldine, she put on an impeccable performance to win like a very good filly.

    It was a successful first day of the Nelson Summer meet with three wins and a number of placings. Valloria, Kotare Cullen and Huey Lewis were all impressive winners.

  • The stable look set to dominate on day one at Nelson
    The Nelson/Marlborough circuit is invariably a happy hunting ground for Robert and John and this year looks to be no different. Driving pre-post favourites in most races today, John will be looking to continue a marvellous run over the holiday period.

  • Matt on the board with first training win of the season
    Woodend Beach reinsman Matt Anderson must have been learning a few tips off the boss John Dunn recently based on his driving at Rangiora yesterday. With two wins and a close up second it could be described as a really good day at the office. That day was even more impressive though considering that one of Matt's driving wins Linton Shard, is also a horse that he trains.

  • It was a case of 1, 2 and 3 at Rangiora.
    We only had the three runners go around at Rangiora yesterday and with a win and two placings, it was close to the perfect day. The sole win of the day came with the impressive Kotare Costa in the maiden.

  • Kotare Costa looking for maiden win at Rangiora
    After two very good runs to open his career, Kotare Costa looks very well placed for his maiden win at Rangiora this afternoon. Well drawn and in just a seven horse field, he will certainly get his chance to open his account.

  • Letspendanitetogetha chases Central Otago Cup
    The Washington VC six year old Letspendanitetogetha has done a really nice job for owners Reg Storer and Terry McDonald this season. Back behind the mobile gate in today's Central Otago Cup, he looks a good chance in a small, but even field.

  • Its a big day for our three year olds
    It is Auckland Cup day at Alexandra Park and a great field as always is assembled for that event. There are no stable runners though in this year's field. Instead the focus will be on the three year old features - for the fillies - with Chevron Supreme and Nakuru both good chances and for the colts and geldings - with Heisenberg well drawn.
