The Aldebaran Park stallions produced important winners in three different countries in July.
YIELD BOKO sired his first ever Group 1 winner in Europe when his three-year-old son Global Badman overcame a torrid passage to win the $150,000 E3 Final (2140m) at a 1:57 rate at Bersaker, Sweden. Rated one of the top three-year-olds in Scandinavia, Global Badman, one of only three offspring from YIELD BOKO’s three-year-old crop, has won seven of his 11 starts and $300,000.
Our leading sire SKYVALLEY was represented by winners in three States and New Zealand.
Pink Galahs¸ a three-year-old filly, defeated older rivals at Bendigo in a career-best 1:58.5 (last 800 in 57) and has now won eight of her 14 lifetime starts. She is a very smart young trotter.
Skyline NZ won twice off handicap marks at Albion Park, Sun Valley Road and Reils (off 40 metres) both saluted at Globe Derby Park, while Kimkar Dash won for the second time at Alexandra Park, Auckland.
SKYVALLEY has sired 34 individual winners and almost $880,000 in progeny earnings to date this season and is in second position on the stakemoney list.
The two-year-old filly Alebaran Selena, who is out of the Aldebaran Park-owned mare Yankee Sister, sliced a full second off her own track record when she captured the Listed Springboard Series Final at Albion Park. It was her third success from nine starts.
The talented three-year-old filly Aldebaran Tess NZ, a winner at Bendigo and Ballarat, was one of four winners bred by Aldebaran Park last month. Other stud winners were Kyvalley Kyrie (Melton and Bendigo) and the pacing half-sisters Aldebaran Jazzi and Chezmac.
Tip Top Grandpa, a son of ALDEBARAN YANKEE¸ scored at Melton and Kilmore and has won three of his last four attempts.
