Guineas Winning Filly Aberlour to Join Pride Racing

Media Release - Thursday February 29

Dual Guineas winner Aberlour’s racing future lies in Australia, following her majority sale to clients of Warwick Farm trainer Joseph Pride.

The daughter of Mongolian Falcon was trained in New Zealand by Riverton horseman Kelvin Tyler, for whom she won three and placed in two of her six starts, including victories in the Listed Gore Guineas (1335m) and Listed Southland Guineas (1600m).

Her performances piqued the interest of a number of potential buyers, but it was Pride who came out in top, with Tyler retaining 30 percent in Aberlour, and he is pleased his filly is going to a stable he has a good association with.

Former Stable runner King Of The Castle was sold to Pride in a similar deal, and Tyler has enjoyed watching him perform well across the Tasman, including being trackside for his fourth placed run in the A$3 million Big Dance (1600m) at Randwick on Melbourne Cup Day. The son of Castledale has subsequently gone on to place in the Listed Santa Cup (2000m).

“She leaves here on Sunday morning, it is pretty exciting to see if she matches up over there,” Tyler said.

“Joe Pride is a good trainer and a good guy. I am pleased she is going there, I am quite sure he will do a good job with her.

“There is a lot of prizemoney over there if they match up. We are quite excited to see how she goes.”

Tyler has enjoyed crossing the Tasman with his family to watch King Of The Castle compete, and he is looking forward to doing the same with Aberlour.

“We have got two reasons to go over there now,” he said. “You have got to enjoy it on the way through. It is all well having these horses, but you have still got to live a life too. Hopefully we can get over there and see her and enjoy it.” – LOVERACING.NZ News Desk
