Well Said winners keep rolling in

Well Said winners keep rolling in

WELL SAID’S Group winning daughter LADY DE LA RENTA came from second last at the bell to record her ninth lifetime success at Gloucester Park on Tuesday night (November 27).

The win pushed her stake earnings beyond the $120,000 mark. Starting from the outside gate, LADY DE LA RENTA was taken off the mobile arm and settled near the rear of the eight-horse field.

Tipped three-wide at the 800 metre point, the mare looped the entire field in the back straight to win easing up by 7.3 metres. The mile rate for the 2130 metres was 1:57.4. She clocked the last 800 in 56.3 – in the middle of the track!

From a mare by JET LAAG, LADY DE LA RENTA was bred by Kevin, Annette and Kody Charles. The mare is owned by Annie and C. Belton and S. W. Hoffmann.

Promising WELL SAID gelding APHORISM made a triumphant return to the racetrack in a NSW Rewards Series heat at Bathurst on Wednesday night (November 28).

Having his first start for five months, the gelding took full advantage of his pole draw to lead from the outset. APHORISM zipped home in 58.6 to keep his rivals at bay. The mile rate for the 1730 metres was 1:59.9. It was the gelding’s fourth lifetime success.

From a daughter of In The Pocket, APHORISM was bred by Dr Fran Hausfeld, who races the gelding in partnership with trainer Ben Settree and R. G. Hunt.

Later at Penrith, 3YO colt PETE'S SAID SO made it two wins from just five starts when he saluted by an emphatic 19.9m ahead of his rivals. Also from an IN THE POCKET mare, the colt was bred by G & R Beckett in New Zealand.
