NET TEN EOM NOW RESIDENT AT MACCA LODGE — AND LEAVING WINNERS ON THE TRACK
NET TEN EOM was mentioned more than any other horse by commentator Dave McDonald at the Northern Southland Trotting Club meeting in Invercargill on 09 March. Okay, that was just because Macca Lodge has bought the naming rights for the passing lane at the club’s meetings and the Somebeachsomewhere stallion was named each time the fields reached the home straight.
But the young sire is starting to compile a tidy record with Anne Bonney becoming his fourth three-year-old winner from his small first New Zealand crop at Forbury Park on 07 March. She came from a hopeless position at the 400 metres to win by more than a length.
Earlier Net Ten EOM winners were Wolf Whistle, Countess of Arden and Calico Hill, who took a time of 1:56.9 when she beat the highly-priced yearling Arden Roanoke at Winton on 17 February.
Macca Lodge imported Net Ten EOM in time for the past breeding season after earlier securing the rights to his frozen semen. He became available when he was withdrawn from service in Indiana.
ILL-FATED PANSPACIFICFLIGHT’s trail of winners
MACCA LODGE co-proprietor Brent McIntyre still scratches his head over the lack of interest from breeders in Panspacificflight.
Wick (17 wins), Little Rascal (14), Wattlebank Flyer (16), Last Flight In (13), Arden’s Concord (11), Southern Pursuit (10), Glenisla (19), The Manipulator (six), Mac’s Man (eight) and Straight Thru Blue (nine) have one thing in common: they’re all progeny from Panspacificflight’s first New Zealand crop. From only 23 live foals he left 20 qualifiers and 15 winners — a 65 per cent winning record. Backing that up, Panspacificflight left Arden’s Choice, the Group I-winning two-year-old filly, in his second crop.
Brent knows that “Pans” won’t be drawing many more breeders but his frozen semen will still be available next season. The stallion died in Indiana in 2018.
