Meet Al Strada's brother!
22 Sep 2013Charlie with Al Strada's half-brother by Dalghar 2 hours old.

Al Strada by Perfectly Ready from Penny Arcade was bred by Nick and I, and was New Zealands top 2YO 2012-13 racing season.  Stakes winner and multiple Group 1 placed he has since been sold to Hong Kong interests and will continue his career up there.  Al Strada was purchased by Jason and Kelly Price as a yearling and trained him to leading 2YO male status.

Sunday afternoon was full of surprises for Brighthill Farm owned mares.

Usually you can't get newborn foal photos since the majority of mares foal in the dark!

Priscilla dam of 2YO stakes winner Napatap (Patapan) foaled an impressive chestnut (who looks as if he may go grey) Dalghar colt at 2 pm.

Not to be outdone, Penny Arcade decided that perhaps she would also foal.  One hour later she safely delivered a chestnut colt by Dalghar.
