  • Long a trotter with a big stable rep, Bonnie Highlander has at times not helped herself with gallops at crucial times in her races. However, on Friday at Alexandra Park, in the Group Three Breeders Stakes, she put it all together to totally dominant a good mares field.

  • Nakuru and Sundees Son return to form at Ashburton
    After looking like an early season star amongst the fillies, Nakuru's form went off during a failed norther campaign. However, a win in a Nevele R fillies heat over stablemate Kotare Yolande has her back on track for upcoming autumn features.

  • It was a very special night at Addington last evening in many respects. A night that can only be described as Nigel Armstrong night.
