The newly-born foals at St Fort are coming thick and fast, keeping everyone on their toes!
Former Kiwi-bred trotter Its Billie Holiday (owned by Pooba Govender) has produced a good-looking colt by Bacardi Lindy ($US207,000 1:52-8). Its Billie Holiday (Continentalman USA-Billie Brook NZ) looked like being anything before persistent injuries brought her racing career to an early end.
The mare had four wins and seven placings from 27 starts with two eye-catching Sydney wins in consecutive two-year-old events after crossing from New Zealand. The first time she won by two metres, with the third horse a further 60 metres away. Her second win was by an incredible 67 metres.
Connections then ventured south to Victoria and after a fourth and fifth, Its Billie Holiday headed home for more glory at Bulli (margin 87 metres) and Harold Park (margin 64 metres).
Then it was back to Victoria for another campaign that saw huge efforts at Shepparton and Kilmore (second), Cranbourne and Geelong (thirds) and Cranbourne and Bendigo (fourths).
