YABBY DAM FARMS MARES ENHANCING BLOODLINES

Pat Driscoll has been vigorous in the pursuit of improving trotting bloodlines in Australasia over the past decade.

Through Haras des Trotteurs, Driscoll has made a selection of Europe’s best-bred stallions and most successful bloodlines to Australian and New Zealand breeders.

The Haras de Trotteurs’  “French Revolution” has been headed by the likes Love You, Quaker Jet and Orlando Vici.

Then over the past few years he has added Classic Connection, as well as introducing a highly credentialed US bloodline through Volstead.

That is only part of the story for Driscoll though.

His Yabby Dam Farms breeding arm has also been influential in providing new trotting bloodlines to Australia with the importation of race mares and broodmares from New Zealand, Europe and North America.

This will be there for all to see at the Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling Sale at Oaklands Junction on Sunday, April 3.

Some 16 of the 23 lots being offered by Yabby Dam Farms have NZ (nine), French (four), United States (two) and Canadian (one) dams.

Since being established in 2004 by Duncan McPherson, Aldebaran Park has been one of market leaders in the field of breeding straightout trotters in both the sales ring and on the racetrack.

American Ideal filly takes out Gold Bracelet

The $100,000 Group One Bathurst Gold Bracelet on Friday night was taken out by Robert Watson’s homebred American Ideal filly Soho Rhapsody in the first leg of a Group One double on the night for trainer/driver Rickie Alchin.

That Watson should breed to American Ideal is hardly surprising after the success he enjoyed with the American Ideal stallion Soho Tribeca which won 21 races and stakes of $1,103,854.

Lauriston Bloodstock will offer an American Ideal filly as Lot 225A at next Sunday’s Nutrien Melbourne Yearling Sale.

This filly is a half-sister to the 2021 2yo Australian Gold Bullion winner Irish Black Label p,2,1:55.4 $121,480 and her dam is the Art Major mare Rosie O’Reilly p,2,1:56.5.

Lot 225A is therefore bred on the identical cross to Soho Tribeca being by American Ideal from a mare by Art Major.

This cross is no one-hit-wonder either with 26 winners bred on the cross including four individual winners of $100,000.

Rosie O’Reilly is a half-sister to None Bettor p,1:48.6 $776,095 and a full-sister to Abouttime p,1:52.9 $111,500.

Betting Line took a record of 1:47.4 as a 3yo and retired to stud with stakes of $2,238,518 to his name and with his oldest Australasian progeny current 3yos he is already the sire of 40 individual winners.

The second Betting Line in next week’s sale is Lot 210 which is a filly out of Our Cavort and is therefore a half-sister to Australian 2yo Filly of the Year Encipher p,2,1:54.9 $278,358.
