The Victorian arm of Eliza Park International staged its first open day under the new banner on Friday 30 August and, as has been the case for the past decade or so, the weather gods favoured us – and so too the crowds.
Suitably wined and dined, attendees were treated a rock solid mix of established, promising and new with this year’s parade.
Stallion manager, David Grant, and his team did a superb job in turning out the boys in spectacular fashion and the likes of Bel Esprit, Wanted, Magnus and Statue of Liberty have clearly lost no fans.
Speaking of which, new kid on the block – Squamosa – gained quite a few and he’s proving to be very popular among the breeding fraternity.
One that almost stole the show though was Black Caviar’s brother, Moshe – he looked nothing short of sensational, as did one of the his first foals … the colt from Sleek’Nsassy (and he’s certainly got plenty of sass!).
