HBV members ready to run with Vicbred quality

Nov 17, 2020 | Harness Breeders Victoria HBV members ready to run with Vicbred quality

The Nutrien Equine Ready to Run online sale takes place across this Breeders Crown weekend from November 20 to 22, with 25 lots to go under the hammer virtually while the Race For Royalty takes place at Tabcorp Park Melton.

Here we explore the pedigrees of lots bred by HBV members who will be eligible for futurity riches in the Vicbred series.

First cab off the rank for our member-breeders is a September filly by Well Said from Bettor’s Delight mare, Bettor Abs, bred by Blanche & Dean Poole at Rhiannon Park (Lot #9, below). The cross gives a 5 x 4 breeding of Most Happy Family, through Oil Burner on the paternal line, and Cam’s Card Shark on the maternal. Abercrombie also appears in duplicate through Well Said’s dam, Artsplace mare Must See, Bettor’s Delight’s dam Classic Wish, and Albatross in triplicate through Western Hanover, Artsplace’s dam Miss Elvira, and Classic Wish’s damsire.

The filly is the third foal from Bettor Abs, with only one previously to race – Sportscribe (Sportswriter, $21,000; 1:57.4) – and has been followed by an Always B Miki filly in 2019. Bettor Abs is a sister to GR2 2009 Inter Dominion Consolation winner Our Awesome Armbro (Armbro Operative, $849,000), as well as to the dams of Sheeza Shark (Four Starzzz Shark, $78,000), and GR3 Teeny Teeny winner Pas Ultimate Delight (Bettors Delight, $447,000) and Ultimate Major (Major In Art, $119,000).
