EARLIER this week we published an article explaining why it pays to be a part of the Australian Pacing Gold ‘family’.
The focus of the piece was tonight’s New South Wales Derby at Tabcorp Park Menangle, which includes five APG eligible runners – of which, three captured their heats.
Successful in last month’s Victoria Derby, Colt Thirty One proved he is on target for another Group One during his qualifier, while Poster Boy and Maraetai will also head into the decider with wins.
The trio will be joined by APG purchases Major Times and Higherthananeagle.
Well, here is another five reasons to be a part of the APG experience – Callmequeenbee, Fame Assured, Nostra Villa, Shez All Rock and War Dan Bad Girl.
The talented quintet of fillies will take their positions in the New South Wales Oaks, with Fame Assured and Shez All Rock triumphant during the heats.
Victory in the Group One by War Dan Bad Girl could have a significant impact on tomorrow’s Sydney Sale as her dam, Weona Badgirl, will be represented by a son.
The colt, which will enter the ring as Lot 251, is a half-brother to War Dan Bad Girl by Rock N Roll Heaven.
Handy matron, Snug Harbor – dam of Oaks emergency and APG graduate Redbank Addi – will have a filly American Ideal in the sale, listed as Lot 426.
