First NZ winner for Macca Lodge sire Net Ten EOM
NET TEN EOM has left his first New Zealand-bred winner with the Tony Stratford-trained Wolf West scoring on his home track at Gore on 26 August.
Wolf West, one of three Net Ten EOMs to qualify last season, had one two-year-old start before being put aside. He was bred by Macca Lodge client Neill Timms from his one-win Son Of Afella mare Ali’s Fella.
“Timmsy” also bred the first New Zealand winner by Macca Lodge’s other sire, Panspacificflight. That was The Manipulator, who finished an unlucky third on the same card at Gore on the back of a win at his previous start.
Panspacificflight put down in United States
SAD NEWS has filtered through from North America that Macca Lodge sire Panspacificflight has been euthanized after breaking a leg in Indiana.
Panspacificflight, from the Rodine Hanover family, was a top racehorse at two and three before injury curtailed his career. He has left the winners of more than $US15 million in North America and has enjoyed strong success at stud at Macca Lodge considering his small crops.
The best of his progeny here has been Arden’s Choice, a Group I winner at two and the winner of $280,000 in stakes
Macca Lodge co-proprietor Brent McIntyre says he expects the stallion’s frozen semen to still be available to breeders next season. Panspacificflight was only lightly patronized here last season.
