Congrats Team Vance

Recommended Posts

Great to see Bobby and his wife gain their biggest success with Royal Performer... a horse returned from Hong Kong...great to see...they have had their ups and downs over the past couple of years but good on them to get a huge win today.🤗

As an aside hope Melody Belle pulled up all well as a side note...

Royal Performer , out of unraced Juddmonte mare that was in Barry Hills yard.. Looking at siblings they get about all over the world , half brother raced in Oman in January and younger full sister trained in Czech Republic and ran 2nd in a couple races   in France in December . Another was trained in Italy and another in Ireland as well as UK .

Thorough congratulations to all winning parties. Stuff dreams are made of. 
 

An ex Hong Kong 8yo is winning premier group 1 middle distance race, surely the powers in racing can see the standard and class of New Zealand’s top racing needs re addressing. Just my opinion, but I worry. The solution is not more SWP races.

Super Win! Congrats to all the Vance team!👏 Our very own Rdytdy was all over it!

I agree Shane...when an 8yo returns from Honkers and cleans up our GR.1 like that... we have say WTF??

Melody Belle I thought was under pressure and not traveling all that well before the turn. The bumping and crowding she received was secondary due to her unable to excellerate out of that position.
