Like Mother - Like Daughter
Twist And Twirl

Friday night saw BETTOR TWIST dance her way on to the Group 1 3YO Sires Stakes Fillies Honour Roll joining dam TWIST AND TWIRL who took out the 2011 running.

Due to the covid shut down this is technically the delayed running of the 2YO version of the event, but we'll claim the 3YO double none the less.

This Group 1 success comes at only start number six for the Bettor's Delight filly. Having shown her class in her previous starts she was going to need every inch of it too overcome a tricky second row draw in the 1609m the mile event. Pilot Tim Williams handled the challenge with aplomb to hold out stable mate Darling Me by 2 1/4 lengths in a sizzling 1.52.1 mile rate

BETTOR TWIST is raced by one of the successful Breckon Farms Syndicates, The Take Ten Syndicate. It’s thrilling to win a Group1 any day, but to do it with a fabulous group of people, and for many of whom this is the first foray in to racing makes the win even more special. Journalist Michael Guerin labelled her the best 3YO filly in the country, a title we’ll proudly accept.

We know her enviable record on the track, but Twist and Twirl 'the dam' is becoming synonymous with Group1 success. Her first foal is millionaire pacer KING OF SWING.

The winner of 26 races, including the Miracle Mile and the Hunter Cup, is a Breckon Farms Yearling Sales graduate. You need a little bit of luck in the industry, and luck would have it that Twist and Twirl after two fillies has left us a cracking colt to take to the NZB Standardbred Yearling Sales in February 2021.

TWIST LIKE THIS is by Alabar Farms sire A Rocknroll Dance, one of the most successful sons of King of Swing's sire, Rocknroll Hanover. With a name like that, proven bloodlines and family on fire we look forward to seeing him dance his way into the record books for his successful purchasers.

Twist and Twirl is currently back in foal to Bettor's Delight due mid November.

Congratulations once again to our Take Ten Syndicate, driver Tim Williams and Trainers Mark Purdon & Natalie Rasmussen.
