Te Akau TV Is Back!

Date: 26 Aug 2022

Te Akau TV is back for another season!

We chat through the season that was for the tangerine team including 146 wins across New Zealand and Australia. Between our departing trainer Jamie Richards and returnee Mark Walker, the duo and our team achieved an unbelievable result for our owners including 9 Group One and 38 Black Type wins resulting in over $8 million dollars in prize money.

It really was a season to remember for Team Te Akau and we are thrilled that Jamie Richards has won the Trainers' Premiership as well as the Champion Trainer of the Year title in the NZTR Horse Of The Year Awards (he was the only finalist).

In this first edition for the new season, Mark Walker chats through his 6 wins at Taupo on Wednesday and 1st win in the South Island, before talking through the team's chances at Te Rapa on Saturday and Matamata on Sunday. This includes Imperatriz as she looks to add to her growing Group CV in the Group 2 Waikato Stud Foxbridge Plate - a race Te Akau has won previously with Avantage and Melody Belle.

We've also got a little best bet from Mark for the weekend's racing so make sure you catch that too.

Good luck to all runners and connections - let's bring on the new season!
