Yesterday 19/10/16, Alta Orlando lined up in a C1+ pace at the Rangiora workouts and this is what trainer Robert Dunn’s website reported on the now 5 yr old’s win.
“Alta Orlando produces super run at the workouts-while he has been off the racetrack for going on two years,the former age group star Alta Orlando looked like a star of today in his resuming run at today’s Rangiora workouts.”
His times were excellent too, 1:58.0 mile rate, finishing his last 800m in 57.2 and 400m in 28.6.
We have a very nice Art Major/La Joconde yearling half sister scheduled for sale at Karaka next February, so keep a lookout for more progeny updates over the ensuing months.
We recently sold our farm at 15 Wright Road and will eventually locate at 190 Waiau Pa Road on a 20 acres of bare land.
Presently, the new block is being fenced and plans are with the Council for the building of a stable block and hay/implement barn.
We are expecting to be relocated by the end of September (this year!)
Alta Leonie 18 June 2016
Impressive result from Alta Leonie to go 8 seconds under the qualifying time at the Cambridge workouts on 18 June. Bee Pears writes ” Watching the Big Jim filly bowl around this morning, you could see she has grown even bigger, but Marshall points out the the growing has been really even. She would be closing in on 16hh as a late 2yo, and the length of her stride is impressive. With a bit more strength and experience, she’s definitely going to develop into a lovely 3yo and later a big, bold mare.” Read more on Bee’s blog here.
Robert Dunn’s high opinion and ambitious plans for Alta Las Vegas (Bettor’s Delight/Alta Camilla) were fully justified last night at Alexandra Park where the classy 3 year old dealt to a handy field in a p.1.57:6 mile rate. It was his third win to go with five places from eleven starts and total stakes earnings of $36,554. Of note, one of those placings as a two year at Ashburton in p2,1.54:8.
Check out our sale yearlings page where we profile his brother, Alta Maestro, by Art Major – he is outstanding!
Also check out the Mach Three colt from Alta Panache, Alta Bonanza, who is a race winning half sister to Alta Camilla – he is a first colt of the dam and powerfully built.
