Concorde Dawn wins in Oz

MACCA LODGE export Concorde Dawn has kept Panspacificflight’s record moving as a sire in Australia with an impressive win in Victoria.

After a second in her first start across the Tasman at Yarra Valley, she sat parked out and rated 1:59.7 for the mobile 2190 metres when successful at Shepparton on 12 August.

From the Gretna Hanover family, Concorde Dawn won once and had three seconds and two thirds for Macca Lodge trainer Tony Stratford before being sold.

Still a three-year-old in Australia, she’s one of six winners so far from Panspacificflight’s second New Zealand crop, which features Group I winner Arden’s Choice, who has been a fantastic advertisement for the Macca Lodge sire.

The other winners from that crop are Ansett Flight, Arden’s Legacy (who was third in the 2015 Kindergarten Stakes before being exported), Julia Lady and Sally Maclennane.
