Australia a happy hunting ground for Trelawney
29 Apr 2017
It has been a week of Australian winners for Trelawney with four runners saluting across the ditch.

Lake Como (Pins x Pedante) kicked the winning roll off with a victory at Flemington on ANZAC Day.  Trained by Pat Hyland, the Trelawney born and raised mare showed her affinity for the track where she won over the same distance two starts back.

Hyland is now likely to test the four-year-old in the $A1 million Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on May 6.

The following day Savvan (Savabeel x Ruud Van Slaats) won at Canterbury for James Cummings, who has since indicated he will plot a path to the Queensland Oaks with the $350,000 2015 NZB graduate.

"She's built like a colt," Cummings said. "She's got plenty of substance about her.

"She can do well up north if we get her there in good form."

Cummings is looking at the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) on May 6 as a stepping stone to Savvan's winter grand final.

On Friday the Patrick Payne-trained Addison (Jimmy Choux x Ruqqaya) notched up the third win of the week for Trelawney graduates.  The 2015 NZB graduate, who was purchased by Belmont Bloodstock for $90,000, was having her second career start, and has now won two from two. 

On Saturday it was not a Trelawney graduate, but one purchased to race in the renowned silks, that scored.  Seeblume (Sebring x Sonnenblume) had always been close in her previous four starts, but was able to break her maiden at Newcastle over 1400m.

With a consistent trans-Tasman strike rate and results as the best form of advertisment, Trelawney graduates are proving time and again the value in purchasing from the Cambridge-based farm.
