FIVE-YEAR-OLD gelding Wattlebank Flyer posted his best mile rate of 1:56 when he won over 1660 metres at Albion Park in Brisbane on 28 July.
The hardy son of Panspacificflight won one race at Addington for Tim Trathen before being sold to Australia. There he’s notched up another six wins and has now topped $40,000 in career earnings.
He’s part of Panspacificflight’s stellar first New Zealand crop, who’ve now won more than 85 races here, in Australia and in North America.
And from his third crop here, Reciprocity opened her account across the Tasman with a win over a mile in 1:57.1 at Newcastle on 29 July. She was a hot favourite, went straight to the front and led all the way. The speedy three-year-old filly was overdue after three seconds in her four Australian starts.
She won one race here for breeder Lester Smith and trainer Lauren Pearson.
