Third generation of Anderton family involvement
A third generation of the Anderton family are continuing involvement in the activities of White Robe Lodge. Jacob Lowry (17), a grandson of WR founder, Brian Anderton has made his mark as an apprentice jockey with 37 wins, including the 2015 group three $100,000 Winter Cup on Timy Tyler. Lowry is apprenticed to his grandfather and rode Tedesco (Gallant Guru - Flight All Nite) to win for the stable at Wingatui on Wednesday (9/12/15). The same day Quartet won for WR. Quartet is raced by Shane (the co-trainer with Brian) and Sharyn Anderton with their twin sons Ryan and Matt (23). Ryan is a full-time worker with the training operation but sidelined with a fractured hand. Emma (17), a sister of the twins, was the attendant for Quartet. She rides work and has show horses. Jack Stewart (23) works for the WR stud, managed by his parents Wayne and Karen Stewart and his brother, Ricky (29) is in the ownership of racehorses. Their sister, Renee Roulston (28) has begun breeding from the mare Preferred Flight (Raise The Flag - Capital Flight), who is in foal to Ghibellines, the first season sire at WR. Jack and his partner Emma bought No Lane Bridge, a Centaine mare at the Karaka broodmare sale and she has foaled a Ferlax filly. She is in foal to Ghibellines. They also have a Stravinsky mare in foal to Ghibellines, who will serve between 95 and 100 mares.
Quartet, who has now won three races, was bought by Wingatui trainer Terry Kennedy for $3000 on behalf of Sharyn as a yearling at the 2011 South Island sale. The attraction was the filly being a half sister by King's Chapel to Miss Millbrook, who had won the 2009 Dunedin Guineas when trained by Kennedy.
