Luna Lang Heads To Grafton

The Mayford Park bred Luna Lang will be looking for his sixth win at Grafton on Monday afternoon. The Paul Grills trained son of Clangalang was formerly owned by a syndicate headed by Mayford Park but has grown an extra leg since being on sold to the Grills yard. Luna Lang is the first foal of the Mayford Park bred and raced mare Alunasu and after earning more than $58,000 it will be exciting to see what her second foal will be able to achieve when she gets to the track. Alunasu's second foal is the Strategic filly and there are still limited opportunities to get involved. You can find more information on the filly by clicking here.

Godavari Running at Moe

The Shane Nichols trained Godavari heads to Moe today, the scene of the crime of his first win. In one start at the track he got the job done and he looks well placed to do the same thing today. The Lonhro gelding is coming off a fourth at Werribee where he was squeezed out the back and came down the home straight with wings. His previous run before that was at his home track at Mornington where he was ridden more comfortably abd loomed the winner in the straight before he was closed on late to finish second. This level and distance is right up his alley and we know he likes the track.

Can Robert be De Hero?

It is an exciting weekend for a good friend of Todd Blum Bloodstock with Nick Konstantinidis featuring in the ownership of Flemington runner Robert De Hero. He takes his place in Race 2 at Headquarters in the Phillip Schuler Anzac Day Stakes over the 1400m. It looks to be a competitive race with some exciting horses including Invincible Knight trained by Peter Moody and David Hayes and Tom Dabernig preparing More Than Most, who runs in the same colours as the other training pairs star, Critertion. Nick is part of the team at Woodside Park and has also worked with Todd when the pair were at Darley where Robert De Hero's sire Von Costa De Hero stands. The Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra train

Major Movie Star

There is already a film titiled, 'The Major,' a Russian action film but there would be no objections in naming another film 'The Major' with the Mayford Park owned Canadian Major the star of the show. A horse with a high price tag as a yearling started with a bang with Mick Price for Mayford Park and a host of other owners. He then was purchased fully by Mayford Park after some below par performances before he then picked himself off the canvas and proved what a quality racehorse he is. A horse with a will to win that can not be trained into them and the toughness that few possess. Earning just over $50,000 so far and more to come. Owned by a great group of people who would happily play them

Stitch Up The Win

A bumper card at Caulfield on Saturday involves the Shane Nichols trained, Stitch Me Up, contesting the Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria Vobis Gold Reef over 1600m. Coming off a very fast finishing third down the middle of the track at Swan Hill over 1300m, he is well suited to the step up in distance. The son of Choisir was purchased by Gleneagles Stud at the 2013 Magic Millions Yearling Sale and runs in the colours of Kevin Wacey's operation with the white silks with a red and gold hoop. Stitch Me Up is looking as though he may be recapturing some of the promise that he showed at the start of the season when he won at Sandown in his first start as a three year old. Jamie Mott has been booked

The Major Is Back

Mayford Park stalwart, Canadian Major, is back in town and will take his place in Sunday's meeting at Racing.com Park. The Peter Gelagotis trained gelding is first up after a lengthy 23 week break where he relished the wind down after a four month preparation last spring. He will line up in the John Duff & Co Benchmark 64 over 1200m with regular rider, Vlad Duric, aboard. Vlad was very excited to get back on the horse who he has ridden to two of his four wins. The Evergreen son of Commands has plenty of quality racing left and was given some extra time in the paddock for this preparation. A plan has been mapped out by both the Gelagotis brothers and managing owner Bruce Maya of Mayford Park.
