Bred by Wentwood Grange – Our Abbadean was entrusted to Te Akau to train by the Hawkins family’s Llanhennock Trust.

She was placed fourth in the $70,000 Group 3 Cuddle Stakes at Trentham in March 2017 in the hands of Cameron Lammas.

One season later, in 2018, she ¬†claimed the $100,000 Group 2 City of Palmerston North Awapuni Gold Cup 2000m at Awapuni in the hands of Danielle Johnson who earlier that day had won the Group 1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes in the Te Akau tangerine aboard Avantage.

In April 2018 she was a gallant runner up under the top weight of 59 kgs in the $75,000 Listed Hawkes Bay Cup over 2200m before she rounded off an impressive season, her best ever, with a stirring win in the $100,000 Group 2 Travis Stakes over 2000m at the Cambridge Jockey Club’s meeting at Te Rapa.

In September, Our Abbadean ran a superb race over 1400m to finish third in the $200,000 Group 1 Tarzino Trophy – behind winning stable mate Melody Belle, a super effort.

She has raced 25 times for seven wins and 11 placings, with stakes’ earnings of $238,635.
