A great way to start this months newsletter off is to congratulate GERRY HARVEY on COGHILLS CREEK's win at Ballarat last Thursday. Coghills Creek is proving to be a handy horse, now winning 3 of his 7 starts.
What a wonderful day we had on Sunday for our Open Day at Coghills Creek (must have been a bit of an omen there).The weather was good, the food was great and it all went off without a hitch. Thankyou to all those that attended. It was lovely to see some old faces as well as welcome some new ones. Congratulations to all those who purchased shares in our horses and we wish you all the very best with them. A very special thanks to Darren Dance, and his wife Liz, who played a vital role in helping us show off these lovely types.
We still have shares available so please don't hesitate to contact us for more info.
For those of you who are familiar with the 'Poppi' family, the matriarch Belle Poppi passed away leading into the open day. 'Grandma' as she was known around the stables, was the founding mare of a winning family of 3 generations, including Chasm. She won races as a filly and was later retired to the broodmare paddock. She has been a very successful mum producing 7 foals to go to the races, for 7 winners. One of these the Group winning CHASM, who won just under three quarters of a million dollars. It was a very sad time for everyone at the stables as Grandma had become part of the family. Her granddaughter BELARUSKI will be off to the races shortly.
Our new website is now up and running and can be accessed by going to:
Here, you will see regular updates on our horses. Photos of 'what's going on' around the stables, and on the racetrack, will be uploaded so you have more of a knowledge of what happens at Terry Kelly Racing. You will be able to check out our other horses in work and also our daily runners. Each horse has their own web site with photos, their form, pedigre and where they are currently nominated or accepted at. Horses available, for lease or purchase, will also be on this site.
This weekend is the annual Mldura 2 day carnival. Like most years, Terry will be venturing up with a truckload of horses and looking for a winner or two. Be sure to keep an eye on our runners.
We wish you all the best with any runners you may have over the coming month!
