Unlike our Victorian summer, Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock bred racehorses have been in hot form in recent weeks.

Three winners highlight a promising start to 2024.

At the two recent Warrnambool meetings Adandiman and Crackle ‘N’ Burn found the winner’s stall, followed by debutant I Am Velvet who won at Pakenham on January 11th.

Adandiman returned to form at his third run for Tom Dabernig following a heart irregularity at his previous start at Donald.

Back to how he races best, he led and appreciated the four-kilogram claim afforded by stable apprentice Jordan Weatherley.

By our champion racehorse Dandino, we also raced his dam Mumbeilly to give us a unique and satisfying mating.

Crackle ‘N’ Burn also trained by Dabernig franked a great third at Terang on debut, to win comfortably after a lovely ride by Billy Egan.

We also raced his sire Crackerjack King and his mating to Burndiniburn looks to have produced a city class galloper.

By I Am Immortal, a former speedy 2YO by I Am Invincible, the filly is out of our good producing broodmare Black Velveteen.

Crackerjack Prince now spelling also had a successful campaign during the Spring, while others in Arizona Dreaming, Hasseltoff and Samuari Star look to be upcoming homebred winners over the next few weeks.
