If you want to be part of the excitment of owning a proven stayer read on. Dutch Delight is out of a multiple group 2 and 3 winning NZ Mare.

A highlight of her last prep was running 3rd to Incentivise (one of the staying horses of the carnival who has now moved to Melboune and is targeting the Melbourne Cup).

Dutch Delight has gone back into training and will target staying races in QLD. In a recent start she won by 4 lengths over 1800m. She could have gone around again (no blowing), she is a true stayer. In her last few starts she has been very consistent and has achieved numerous placings before achiving her convincing win. She is improving every start.

Only look at her recent form last prep with the Melbourne Cup winning trainer, Sheila Laxon. We knew she was well bred and showed ability in training which is why we had patience with her ( as all staying owners need) . We have found a perfect trainer for her in Sheila Laxon and John Symons who have worked out she is a complete stayer. She was never put over ground until she went to Sheila..

This is a great opportunity as she is sound and back in training (No waiting).

This is a fun short term risk as the lease will expire 1/08/2022. She has proven she has staying ability and we look forward to her working through the grades.

She is a great type and has real attitude. Only a small percentage of the lease remains so get in quick.
