Te Akau TV - Set For The Sires

Join us for Te Akau TV this week as Racing Manager Reece Trumper takes us through Te Akau's chances at the highly-anticipated Group One Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes on Saturday at Awapuni.

Te Akau has dominated the event, with five consecutive wins by Maven Belle, On the Bubbles, Yourdeel, Avantage and Melody Belle, all claiming Group One honours, with stablemates Maroofity and Kindacross also previously claiming line honours.

Reece shares exciting news of the team's recent victories, including Imperatriz's triumph in the Group One William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley and Brando's success in the Group Two Ultimate Mazda Japan Trophy, alongside Chu Cullain, Aris Aris, Millefiori, Petrucci, Believe it or Not, Hero Worship, and Zantabulous who may book her ticket to the Queensland Carnival.

He then turns his attention to the team's chances at Avondale and Awapuni, where Fashion Shoot and Synchronize continue their season rivalry in the Listed Bramco Granite and Marble Flying Handicap. Meanwhile, Trobriand is a strong favourite for the Group One Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes, and Brando completes a quick turnaround taking his place in the Group Two City of Palmerston North Awapuni Gold Cup.

Finally, Reece gives us his Best Bet and hints at a promising 3-year-old filly set to line up in next week's Group One NZ Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes at Pukekohe Park.

Wishing all our runners and connections the very best of luck!
