Broadside a stayer of worth
Broadside (by Raise The Flag) followed up his win in the $A179,000 group three Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) on September 16 with a third in the gr three Colin Stephens Quality (2400m) at Rosehill on Saturday. Broadside (ex Anam Cara), has now won four races from 11 starts since he began racing from the Randwick stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott 12 months ago.
White Robe Lodge personnel and horses took five South Island awards for the 2016-17 at a function in Christchurch on Friday (22/9/2017). WRL collected awards for trainer (Brian and Shane Anderton), apprentice (Jacob Lowry), owner (Brian and Lorraine Anderton), Coulee (miler) and stayer (Tommy Tucker).
Brian Anderton is hoping to gallop Tommy Tucker and Coulee between races at Gore on Friday. Tommy Tucker has the $230,000 Coupland's Bakeries Mile at Riccarton on November 15 as his immediate target. Coulee and stablemate Fascinate are being aimed at the Canterbury Breeders' Stakes (1400m) the same day. Tommy Tucker has not raced since he won the Canterbury Gold Cup in April and Coulee has been away from racing for a similar five months.
Titan Banner and New Years Jay, the pacing stablemates who finished first and second in the Hannon Memorial at Oamaru on Sunday for trainer Graeme Anderson, are having about five days in the paddock at WRL before continuing spring campaigns. Titan Banner, the New Zealand Trotting Cup hope, held out New Years Jay by a neck.
"I will keep New Years Jay jogging at home until she comes in season so I can have her AI'd (artificially inseminated) to Sweet Lou. She is 10 now and I want her served early this year after she missed last year,'' said her co-owner Brian Anderton. New Years Jay has been placed in her four starts since her return to racing this season.
