The ill-fated Aldebaran Eagle (Tr 3 – 1.52.2), a Group 1 Stakes-winning son of Muscle Hill, was credited with his first feature race winner from his first crop when the two-year-old Aldebaran Dexta (from Aldebaran Deegan) trounced his rivals in the time-honored Parker Classic at Globe Derby in South Australia.
The gelding, who was bred and is part-owned by Aldebaran Park, has won two of his three starts to date.
Aldebaran Eagle's frozen semen will be available this season only (due to the HRA rule changes) for the reduced fee of $2000 less multiple mare discounts.
Skyvalley, Aldebaran Park’s flagship stallion, enjoyed a great month with eight individual trotting winners of 10 races. He is now in second position on this year’s all aged list with 25 winners and $569,432 progeny earnings.
Heading the vanguard was the three-year-old Tennerson, who won twice for the month at Melton and Stawell and the WA Square Trotters Association Cup winner and 11-time winner No Republic, who won twice for the month in Western Australia.
Other Skyvalley winners were Kyvalley Boomerang (Menangle), Daring Angel (Melton), the Cambridge winner Skyzrclearing, Patched and Floating Mountain (both at Bendigo) and Reils (Globe Derby).
Aldebaran Park bred eight individual winners in both hemispheres during June 2021.
Besides Aldebaran Dexta, homebred winners included the talented three-year-old colt Sonofamistery (Muscle Hill-Mistery Woman 1:51 - $480,360), who won a $US50,000 Open Trot in a career-best 1:51.4 at The Meadowlands, New Jersey. The colt has now won four races and $US82,750.
Other Aldebaran Park-bred winners were an impressive trio of three-year-olds in Aldebaran Zeus (Muscle Hill– Zoia Boko at Yarra Valley), Aldebaran Huey (from Aldebaran Honey at Melton) and Kyvalley Heist from our NZ-based mare U Dream, Savvy Kyvalley (from Group 1 Oaks winning mare Aldebaran Dream) and the Gloucester Park pacing winner Jaspervellabeach (1:57).
The American import Aldebaran Revani (Donato Hanover–Coffeecake Hanover, 1:54.4), who is owned by Aldebaran Park, finished runner-up at her Australian debut at Menangle, rating a tick over two minutes for 2300 metres.
The mare won two races as a three-year-old in her homeland when trained by Jonas Czernyson in 1:54.4 and 1:57.2.
God of Thunder, a six-year-old gelding by our stallion Yield Boko, and one of his first crop, downed a strong field in the Redcliffe Trotters Cup, his ninth lifetime success. Yield Boko's frozen semen will again be available in the upcoming breeding season.
