The early 2YO races are an exciting time for everyone in Australia being the market is dominated by early two year old speed. The Maribyrong Trial sees some of the most precocious 2YO’s of the season stepping out. Previous winners include the likes of Sepoy, Sweet Sherry, Ingratiating, Kuroshio etc.

Get In The Spirit (Spirit of Boom x Sopraffina f.) won in impressive fashion and at her first start! She was a $110,000 Magic Millions yearling purchase and bred by Simon Engelbrecht! An exciting time for all involved and a great result for Simon, we are so pleased for him. 



Birdsville’s back in HK

The gelding was sold to Hong Kong from Victorian trainer Peter Moody following an impressive win on debut at Werribee, before running 3rd in the Talindert Stakes behind Gimme Parr (Not A Single Doubt) and Ingratiating (Frosted).
