Former Kiwi three-year-old colt Conversion has arrived from across the “ditch” in outstanding condition.
The pacer was restricted to a few days of light work at St Fort, before Tony decided to click him up.
“I just let him bowl along under his own steam and he certainly has a touch of class about him,” he said.
The son of Christian Cullen impressed so much so that he will hit the race scene now earlier than first planned.
Conversion has drawn the number 11 alley in race 9 at Shepparton this Thursday afternoon.
The pacer, an impressive Addington winner two starts ago when in the expert hands of leading NZ horseman Mark Purdon, has two wins and two placings from six lifetime outings.
Meanwhile another Kiwi youngster, also sired by Christian Cullen, could be here by the end of the week.
“He has been checked over and given the thumbs up by a top New Zealand vet---and travel arrangements are well in hand,” Tony said.
Anyone interested in joining the excitement of harness racing, should contact Tony asap on 0419 331868 as a small number of shares are available. St Fort is based at Moama, near Echuca, and is a comfortable few hours drive from Melbourne.
Owners with the Peacock stable are welcome to visit the 700 acre property by appointment---and quite possibly end up later that night at the glorious Moama RSL Club for dinner and drinks!
