    Wish I owned Aloisia.
    Won’t be able to back her but she’ll be collecting some prize money over the next few years.

    Mikimoto - WA Sebring Filly

    Hard to get a gauge on WA form but won very impressively against what looked like a very strong field of fillies yesterday

    Be surprised if we don't see her on the Eastern seaboard next prep

    Impressive, it went off like a rocket I thought it would fall in a heap but it kept going.... big gap back to Stunts who has a rap on it and then a bigger gap back to third which is usually a good sign.

    Jockeys not to follow - that flogfest Adkins.
    Ride in the last at Rosehill was a dog turd. Poor horse probably still flushing that out.

    Wasn’t sure where else to write this but here we go... couple of you fellas might remember I bought a small share into a horse a couple of years ago by the name of Pirellone.

    For the most part of the last 2 years and 10 starts he’s been very disappointing, after showing early promise as a 2yo in training he had his fair share of problems and then just never really got going.

    This prep as a last chance resort we decided to give him a run with the Price boys at Kembla hoping that a change of scenery could do us some good. Once again their early reports was that he seems to have a bit of ability and should be able to pick off a few races with him.

    Well after a decent 4th at his second up run his two following runs were terrible and we were pretty much going to pull the pin on him but Luke Price pretty much begged to give him one more run over 2200 in a maiden at Nowra on the Monday just passed.

    So low was our confidence we had even arranged a lady to pick him up on course straight after the race and take him to train him to be a show jumper.

    The track ended up a heavy 9 and we had never run him on even a soft since his first start as he had gone ordinary, but the attitude was just let him go around...

    The morning of the race I had a quick look at the odds and the big fella was 80-1, a bloke at work asked me is it worth chucking a lobster ew on him? I said mate to be fair he should probably be 100s and he shied away.

    Would you believe about 10mins out from the race the big fella had been backed into 8.50! I couldn’t believe it and rang the Prices they couldn’t believe it either and said it wasn’t their money..

    Anyways after a slight ease in the market the big fella started 16s on the tote and went straight to the front with Kathy O’Hars on board and proceeded to bolt in but 4 lengths!

    We as an owenership group were stunned and over the moon... honestly such a great feeling and one I won’t forget.

    His career as a show jumper has been put on hold and he will be going around next week at Kembla in a class 1, please do your rain dances for me during the week!
