NEWS XTRA -

***ASSASSINATOR and ICEOBAR both scored points at the Ashburton trials in preparing for Addington on Saturday. Iceobar, a trials performer at Addington recently, won in 2.00.1 in the hands of Blair the last 800m in 57 and the 400m in 26.8. Assassinator came from off the pace to run the promising Mike De Filippi-trained Christian Cullen gelding Kilcullen to a head in 2.00.2 home in 57.4 and 26.5.

***Two year olds Follow the Stars and Kept Under Wraps have come through their races in good order. Their semi finals are in two weeks at Melton near Melbourne. Supersonic Miss races this Saturday at Menangle and Mark will return to drive. Mark said he had some concerns about the judicial decision when a protest was lodged against Kept Under Wraps after drifting out in the straight. "You are always concerned about something like that especially away from home but it turned out there was no problem''

s***THEY MADE him a $1.10 fave and FOLLOW THE STARS matched the price with the power careering away with his APG heat in 1.59.5 but with the last 400m in 26 at Menangle Saturday. Mark steadied him early but made a sharp move down the back and after that it was a procession. The All Stars team is so far unbeaten in the APG series Supersonic Miss having won last week and Kept Under Wraps winning well last night also.

***KEPT UNDER WRAPS made it two from two one on each side of the Tasman with his win in the APG heat at Menangle on Saturday night. He led most of the way, with favourite Artistic Lite attacking down the back and heading the Kiwi int he run home. However Kept Under Wraps, while running greenly,  and bearing out on the favourite surged back to win on his merits in 1.57.6 home in 27. A true Australasian product he gave All Stars its 6th win of the weekend after seven last weekend on either side of the Tasman.

PREMIER PROFILE -ISAIAH-

 

 

 

SOME horses have the "big match'' temperament some don't. ISAIAH is one of those that has.

He showed that again on Friday. He was at ridiculous odds when you look at his record below but he hadn't raced for a while, he had a horror gate and most thought he would be a better proposition in the Derby a week later.

Even with 150m to run only the truly devoted would have hailed him home. Isaiah had a different idea. He just kept coming, coming and coming and in the end he made it.

"He just wants to win, loves to win'' Natalie said after his triumph. "When you don't expect him to have any more he produces it''

Have a look at Isaiah's record and you will understand. His record in Group races and the rich Sales races to date are:

 

 

 

2nd NZ DERBY  G1 (beaten half a head)

1st Flying Stakes G2 (gate nine) 

3rd NSW DERBY (G1)

1st SALES OPEN (5)

8th ALABAR CLASSIC g2 (5)

3rd SIRES STAKES FINAL G1 (14)

4TH 2YO EMERALD G1 (8)

3RD SIRES STAKES FINAL G1 (6)

1ST 2YO SIRES STAKES G1 ()

5TH WELCOME STAKES G2 (13)

2ND YOUNG GUNS FINAL G1 (6)

1ST SAPLING STAKES G3 (9)  

 

ISAIAH has had less luck than some with barrier draws in big graces which has not helped him either. He was overdue for a good one in the and knowing it is a G1 race you knew he will be right in the fight. His earnings now top $450,000 a healthy total for an autumn three year old.

FACTS AND FIGURES

**MARK has now chalked up a career total of 1559 winners just in New Zealand and while it is still a big ask he could reach 1600 this season. As always Mark is chasing Roy and Barry's amazing records in this areas but it is still extraordinay. He has trained 908 winners under his own name 558 with Grant Payne and now 93 with Natalie.

*MARK and NATALIE have many outstanding feats on their record charts but surely one of Mark's most reMARKable feats has happened at Addington in Cup week- generally regarded as the pinnacle of the season by leading horsemen.  Mark has won at least one race as a driver  on both Cup Day and Show day EVERY YEAR since 2006 !

 

*ALL STARS in spite of a quieter than usual racing team in January is still the leading stable in New Zealand as of Tuesday with 56 wins and just over $1m. It has been  the first stable to a million in earnings for seven years now and as usual it is a long way back to the second placegetter.


If you thought a quiet racing time meant the stable was losing its touch, wash the thought out with soap and water.

At the same stage last season All Stars had won 44 races from only 13 less starters than this season and $1.142m.

We were only fourth on the list at that stage later going to a big lead before being run down late with a little help from friends.

 Mark and Natalie are no doubt determined to reverse that this season.

The top three trainers this time last year were Cran Dalgety, Robert Dunn and Geoff Small. Robert, who is mounting another determined challenge to be leading trainer,  is closest to All Stars at this stage with 51 wins. (this time last year 45).

Our UDR rating is also above last year at .4060 when 12 months ago it was .3819

WHO WE ARE-WHERE WE ARE GOING

 

ALL STARS STABLE prides itself on its professionalism, its innovation,

 

and its organisation- and how those three dynamics work in our quest

 

to give our owners the best possible deal.

 

As New Zealand's leading stable  Mark, Natalie and stable horseman  Blair Orange

 

are conscious that only the best will do.

 

Last season's sensational results are all the evidence you need

 

that their efforts are being rewarded.


A key is the wonderful complex Mark built from scratch in 2007 at

 

Rolleston.

 

It is the most advanced harness barn in the southern hemisphere with

 

track facilities to match.

 

That includes a separate  straight mile track.

 

Our complex has  proven a big bonus for horses and staff. 

 

The barn caters for 40 horses with another 12 boxes and paddocks galore.

 

In the sometimes brisk Canterbury climate, All Stars horses are

 

accommodated at equine five star level. 

 

Mark Purdon has already trained over 100 Group One winners something never previously achieved in this country.

 

There is a stream Horse of the ear award winners, a long list of New Zealand records and the best UDR ratings of

 

any horseman in our history. He has trained more Harness Jewels winners than anyone (over $2m worth) and

 

regularly tops $2.5 milliion in stakes each season.

 

Plus over 20 Group One wins in Australia  !

 

 

We won't start on the yearling selection record !

 

 

 

Horses winning is our aim-not just horses racing.

 

That requires a lot of hard work and a lot of good owners. We believe

 

our owners are the best.

 

We want to do our best to make their experience even better

 


 

Feel free to join us. You will always be welcome and if your horse has

 

the ability the sky is the limit.

 

If it turns out to be not a star there is no shortage of demand for

 

horses developed at All Stars.

 

SO, FOLLOW THE TEAM OF STARS -THE ALL STARS TEAM !
