Seven NZ winners for Baker/Forsman

Wednesday 27 December 2017, 5:33pm

Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman have celebrated a successful day with seven winners spread over two New Zealand meetings.

The champion trainers had four winners at Wednesday's Rotorua meeting and three at New Plymouth to celebrate their best day in terms of individual winners.

"I thought that if we didn't get two or three winners then I would be disappointed, but we had a lot of luck and everything panned out," Forsman told NZ Racing Desk.

"It was just one of those days when it all went right. It's been great."

True Enough, Princess Sapphire, Mental Telepathy and Ladynadel were their winners at Rotorua with Desert Storm, Break My Stride and Mighty Power successful at New Plymouth.

"We came in to the day knowing we had some good chances, but in this game things have to go your way and they did," Forsman said.

"They are good, progressive horses and they will all be good chances again in the next few weeks."

Forsman said he had expected Desert Storm to be one of the stable's best chances in the opening event at New Plymouth.

"He was one that we would have been pretty disappointed if he hadn't won and it was good to see Break My Stride back in form," Forsman said.

"He's a horse that still does a few things wrong and hopefully we've got him worked out now."

Baker and Forsman prepared 107 winners to win last season's NZ premiership and have 56 less than halfway through 2017/18.
