Three Year Olds
TK CERUS (Stable name Vic by TK Titan from TK Hellraiser)
Vic is homebred gelding out of a pacing mare is line bred to Noble Victory and Volomite, the producers of great trotting speed as well as the maternal dominance of the Old Maid and Light Brigade. This is a long legged outstanding type of colt that is very similar in stature to his ½ brother, TK Boatman.
He will be a big horse and will probably get to 16h and will be broken in mid 2017 after he has filled out his big frame.
TK Orelia (Stable name Reggie by TK Boatman from TK Zenobia)
Reggie is homebred colt out of a Royal Mattjesty mare is line bred not only to the full brothers Rustler Hanover and Red River Hanover but also has three strains of Direct Scooter speed up close in his pedigree.
This gelding has grown into a nice horse and is lovely natured with a top pedigree to match. He has been spelling at home and our plan is to place him with a selected trainer on a 50/50 deal or a lease deal with a ROP in early Mid 2017.
TK SEREN (Stable name Billy by TK Boatman from TK Dreamweaver)
Billy is homebred gelding out of a Pacific Hanover ½ sister to the good winner Nikiesha. He is linebred to Cam Fella and No Nukes with many strains of Most Happy Fella in his pedigree. He has developed into a nice horse and will be broken in later this year probably going to Jay Abernethy for this process and to assess what his future will be as a racehorse and either put out there to trainers on a 50/50 deal or a lease deal with a ROP.
He has developed into a nice horse and because he had a paddock injury as a yearling he will not be tried and probably be sold off as a riding horse.
TK BALIOS (Stable name The General by Attorney General from Provocative)
Patton is very nice colt by Attorney General from a ½ sister to the good performers in BAD BOY and Vengeance.
He has great speed and pacers free legged around the paddock while his paddock mates are galloping. He will be broken in mid April 2017 and we will race him ourselves or in a 50-50 partnership with a trainer as he is the first foal from the mare and we want to ensure that Provocative gets a good start as a producer.
IRA HAYES (Art Official from Soky’s Bet)
This was our pin hook steal from the 2016 Australasian Yearling Sales at $3000. He is from an unraced Bettor’s Delight sister and half sister to Sweet Talking Man (p2 1.57.1 $205,360 a top NZ 2 & 3yo), Wartime Sweetheart (p3 1.57.1 $278,282),Stylish Sweetheart (p2 1.58.3 $157,410), Gomeo Romeo (p2 1.59.9 p3 1.56.8 $340,194) Bettor Sweet (Aust 1.56.3) and numerous other winners. Art Official is an underrated sire by Art Major who paced 1.47.3 as a 3yo won $2,082,885 and beat Somebeacchsomewhere in winning the Meadowlands Pace. His progeny continue to win on both sides of the Tasman and in the States.
This gelding is a serious racehorse with the head space of a 4yo and always wants to try his best. He was a pleasure to have at home and has returned to Jay Abernethy’s stable in January 2017 and is being set to qualify as a 2yo and be set for the 3yo NZSS heats and the NZYSS race as a 3yo.
