Outstanding sire stats for Panspacificflight:
60 per cent winners from first NZ crop . . . just 14 horses who’ve won 65 races!
WEEK IN, WEEK OUT the New Zealand-bred progeny of lightly-patronised Macca Lodge sire Panspacificflight are winning in style — in the United States, Australia and here.
Five-year-old Arden’s Concord recorded an early-season Oamaru double, bolting in there again on 11 September, running a 55.8 last half, to bag his sixth win. He was trained for his first three wins at West Plains in Southland by Matt Saunders but has been back with his part-owner Graeme Anderson in Otago for the last three. His form line now reads 221211.
A couple of days earlier four-year-old Thisismylastflight was a striking maiden winner on debut at Addington.
The previous weekend rising West Australian star Straight Thru Blue won two races in three days, rating 1:56.4 for 2170 metres at Pinjarra. Group I winner Arden’s Choice rated 1:55.1 to beat a classy field over 1700 metres at Alexandra Park.
And at the end of August it was Wick (now racing as Wick N), notching his third win in the United States at Yonkers Raceway.
And Panspacificflight has achieved this with low numbers of foals on the ground in each season he’s been available here.
Heart-warming story of an eight-year-old PANSPACIFICFLIGHT gelding’s gift of life
BROOKLYN FLIGHT is the horse that keeps on giving. From the first North American crop of Macca Lodge sire Panspacificflight, the eight-year-old gelding won his 40th race at The Meadows in Pennsylvania on 27 August in the pretty sharp time of 1:50.4. His earnings are somewhere north of $US350,000. But that’s only part of the story.
“It’s unbelievable how one horse can bring so much joy to your friends and family, ” his trainer says.
