Uncertainty swirls the world but Ontrack’s first yearling breakers have completed their education without an issue.
The Flying Artie filly and a Nicconi colt purchased from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale last week finished their education with Greg Bennett and his Fenwick Farm team at Canungra and came through with flying colours.
It’s business as usual for the Ontrack horses and these yearlings are the first to complete their breaking and our other yearling purchases will follow in the weeks and months ahead.
Ontrack’s policy is to allow all its yearling purchases a nice break in the paddock once they come from the sale and then send them to the breaker once they’ve chilled out following their sales preparation.
Fortunately the South East Queensland weather has co-operated and the January and March Magic Millions yearlings have been able to spell in pastures that have enjoyed great summer rain.
The Flying Artie-West Coast Chick filly was one of several Flying Artie yearlings Greg Bennett has broken in at Fenwick Farm and he’s impressed with the freshman stallion.
“The Ontrack filly is a natural and like all the Flying Artie yearlings we have handled, she is a quick learner with a great attitude.
“On what we have seen this summer, Flying Artie is doing a great job,” said Greg Bennett.
The NIcconi-Rock Style colt also had no issues during a straightforward education.
