Rockinwithattitude (1:57.9), a daughter of this season’s Australian leading three-year-old sire Aldebaran Eagle, is rated the top three-year-old trotting filly of the year, particularly after her runaway win in the $75,000 Group 1 Breeders Crown final for trotting fillies at Melton on November 25.

It was her fourth Group 1 success and her 17th lifetime win from 26 starts and lifted her stake tally to $333,940.

Aldebaran Eagle was also represented by Aldebaran Dexta (ex Aldebaran Deegan, Sundon), who won three consecutive races at Globe Derby Park in South Australia, and Aldebaran Boyd (ex Aldebaran Revenue by Revenue), a winner at Bendigo in Victoria.

Resident sire Skyvalley enjoyed a banner month with 11 individual winners and is again ranked highly on the national all aged stakemoney list. He has left 24 winners for the season to date and progeny earnings of almost $600,000.

Undoubtedly, the highlight was Kyvalley Amanda’s brilliant come-from-behind win in the Listed $20,000 Breeders Crown 3YO Silver Fillies Trot at Bendigo on November 30.

Other Skyvalley winners in November were Aldebaran Sundown (ex Aldebaran Sunset NZ by Sundon), who overcame a 60-metre handicap at Gloucester Park in Western Australia, Patched (1:59.5, 16 wins, $155,483), who took his earnings beyond $150,000 at Pinjarra in Western Australia, the Globe Derby Park winners Skybreeze (1:59.8) and My Bad Habits, the new three-year-old winners Maoris Return and Picket Wire, and Kyvalleyhoneybunny (1:59.3) and Hurricane Jane in Victoria. Kyvalley Finn (1:57.7, 15 wins, $263,042) in New South Wales and the Auckland winner Kimkar Dash (1:57.2), whose stake earnings are nearing $100,000.

Skyvalley also figured as the damsire of the Melton and Yarra Valley three-year-old victor Majestic Mover and another three-year-old winner in Jilliby Jetpack.

Aldebaran Park bred four individual winners of seven races for the month highlighted by Keayang Ignite (Angus Hall-Aldebaran Revenue by Sundon), who established a new track record in the Swan Hill Trotters Cup and scored at Melton one week later.

Other homebred winners were Aldebaran Dexta, Aldebaran Sundown and Aldebaran Boyd.
