Allwoods Rocknroll and Just Like Art, a pair of three-year-olds bred and owned by Allwood Stud, emerged successful at Gloucester Park and Northam on consecutive nights in July.
Allwoods Rocknroll, who notched his third win, rated a career-best 1:59 over 2130 metres with the last 800 in 57.8, while Just Like Art broke her maiden status in a 1:58.8 rating over 2190 metres.
Both were very impressive and belong to successful winning families. Allwoods Rocknroll is the sixth foal and fourth winner out of the unraced Lilyann Joy, a daughter of broodmare gem Marilyn Ann (dam of 4 in 2:00), while Just Like Art is the second live foal and first winner from the race-winning Just Like Gina.
We landed a double at Bunbury on July 28 with the two-year-old colt The Last Drop and four-year-old Life To The Max.
The Last Drop led throughout and defeated older, more experienced rivals, carving out the last 800 in 56.9 on the way to his first success. The colt is the first foal of the unraced A Drop Of Moet, a PARSON’S DEN mare.
While Life To The Max, who took a new lifetime mark of 1:59.2 coming from midfield, has now won four races. The black mare is the first offspring of the thrice winning mare Just Like Jess (2:00).
The Allwood Stud resident stallions TINTED CLOUD, LOMBO MANDINGO and PARSON’S DEN left winners across three States in July.
TINTED CLOUD was represented by the 1:53.9 Menangle winner Franco Storm, the dual Globe Derby Park victor Buriton Bailey (1:56.8 and 1:57.7), Miss Rodriguez (1:56, Bathurst) and Hey Suzie (Parkes).
Harry Haich, a three-year-old gelding by PARSON’S DEN, chalked up consecutive wins at Northam and Gloucester Park, while Cheeky Jerula carried the flag for LOMBO MANDINGO with a 1:58.8 triumph at Wagga.
