WATCH OUT for the new Macca Lodge colours this season. All going well, they’ll be seen in the race the stud is sponsoring during Cup week in Christchurch.
They’re navy blue with emerald green sleeves with the Macca Lodge logo on the front and back. Replacing the blue with green stars, they were first worn by junior driver Craig Ferguson behind Bonnie’s Khaleesi at Gore this month.
She finished fourth first-up for the season and will race next at the Riverton meeting on 01 November.
With a bit of luck Bonnie’s Khaleesi, last season’s Southland Three-Year-Old Filly-Of-The-Year, will then contest the $20,000 Macca Lodge-sponsored South of the Waitaki race on Show Day at Addington. It’s a 2600-metre mobile for C1 and C2 pacers. Eligible horses must have been registered with a southern trainer as at 01 August.
FOOTNOTE; Horses trained at Macca Lodge who are not owned by the McIntyres will continue to race in trainer Tony Stratford’s own colours.
