Te Akau TV - NYD Preview

Six of the best, that was the theme of a VERY special Boxing Day for our Premiership leading trainer Jamie RIchards. As he'll tell you though, it's a busy time of year and we must keep on rolling!

So with this in mind Louis Herman-Watt joined Jamie to preview another special day on the racing calendar, New Years day at Ellerslie.

We take another very strong team up to Auckland including three very exciting 2 year olds kicking off in R3 - Avonallo, Imperatriz & Sword Of State.

Illusion of Paris, You're Welcome, In A Twinkling, Savy Yong Blonk & Te Akau Caliburn all tackle staying assignments across the card and each have their claims for finding success.

Prise De Fer gets his chance to defend his title in the Gr. 2 Rich Hill Mile against a competitive field and Secret Amour gets her crack at capping off some consistent form in the last race of the day.

Our star mare Avantage returns in the Gr. 1 Sistema Railway where she will start close to favourite from a nice draw with Opie back on board. It's a fantastic day's racing and we're sure there'll be another great crowd gathered to enjoy the spectacle! 💥

Thanks for all of the kind messages we've received since Boxing Day and your well wishes in general, it's been a long and gruelling year for many but we're just grateful for our loyal owners and of course our whole team who keep our horses in the condition they need to be to continue to make history! 🍊
