Admittedly it’s out of season but two new foals – both fillies – arrived in the last 24 hours: the first, Emma Shannon Wilkinson at 3pm yesterday (9 March) and the second – Sophie May Lindsay – just after 1pm today (10 March).
Emma is the daughter of Luke ‘Lucky’ Wilkinson and partner Liane Shannon (pictured above at the Gold Coast Magic Millions), while Sophie is by Mark ‘Nugget’ Lindsay (a lot of Kiwi black type), out of Janine Hunt, who hails from fine British stock.
Luke, now the head of thriving syndication company Luke Anthony Bloodstock, was formerly employed at Eliza Park in the nominations department, while Mark has filled those shoes admirably for the past couple of seasons.
Janine also works for Eliza Park – although she has been absent from her desk for the past couple of weeks!
Hearty congratulations to both new sets of parents.
Does make you wonder though … a former and current member of the nominations team both becoming proven sires within 24 hours of each other?
Obviously wasn’t much on telly last May!
