Outstanding sire stats for Panspacificflight
60 per cent winners from first NZ crop . . . just 14 horses who’ve won nearly 70 races!
IT’S TIME TO JUMP ON BOARD PANSPACIFICFLIGHT
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.
The latest winner is four-year-old gelding Arden’s Legacy, who took a best time of 1:56.1 when he won over a mile on Maryborough Gold Cup day in Victoria on Sunday. Good enough to place in the Kindergarten Stakes at Wyndham as a two-year-old, he’s now won three times in Australia.
Little Rascal, from Panspacificflight’s stellar first crop here, won his eighth race at Addington on 14 October and took his earnings past the $100,000 mark. He sat parked for the last 800 metres of the 1950-metre sprint in 56.2 on a wet night in Christchurch and stalled off his stablemate Dalness Xchange by a head. He then ran third to Dream About Me at Ashburton on Monday.
Before that the former Tim Trathen-trained Wattlebank Flyer posted a 1:59.2 mile rate when he brought up win number three of his career over 2138 metres at Albion Park in Brisbane on 11 October. He came from last at the 400 metres and stormed home wide on the track to win in the last stride.
On October 1 three-year-old filly Reciprocity, from Panspacificflight’s third crop here, won at her third start at the Northern Southland meeting at Invercargill on 01 October.
Five-year-old gelding Wick N, who was the first NZ-bred Panspacificflight progeny to be successful in the United States, recorded his fourth North American win at Yonkers Raceway on 26 September in 1:53.6.
Arden’s Concord, also from Panspacificflight’s first NZ crop, has been sold and has joined the Ardmore stable of Tony Herlihy after recording an early-season Oamaru double. He bolted in there again on 11 September, running a 55.8 last half, to bag his sixth win.
A couple of days earlier four-year-old Thisismylastflight was a striking maiden winner on debut at Addington. He’s being aimed at the $32,000 Futurity on Show Day.
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 she has since run third in the Holmes DG Pace on the same track.
And Panspacificflight has achieved this with low numbers of foals on the ground in each season he’s been available here.
