The All Stars team look set to clock up 150 wins for the season after the second-half of their two-year-old team trialled up smartly at Ashburton on Tuesday.

The majority of them are likely to be seen on the track before the end of the season.

"Things went our way. We were really pleased with the way they went with perhaps only Better With Bourbon not quite up to what we expected. Most of them will now be racing before the end of the season,” said Purdon on his All Stars Website.

Adore Me’s little brother, Have Faith In Me, was just one of a handful of impressive trialists from the barn.

The Bettor’s Delight two-year-old full brother to New Zealand’s glamour mare won his heat by half of a length over stablemate Duke Of Albany (Bettor’s Delight – Princess Alberta). Fellow Purdon-Rasmussen trained runners, Change Stride (Rocknroll Hanover – Chaanger) and Lightfingered (Bettor’s Delight – La Filou), were also close-up in the finish, rounding out a Purdon-Rasmussen First4.

Have Faith In Me paced the one mile in 2-00.3, with tidy sectionals of 58.5 and 27.2.

Two-year-old filly Big Lucy, who trialled up well earlier in the season was also an impressive winner, clocking the mile in 2-02.4 with plenty left in the tank, while 3YO Horace Greesley, who cost just $3,000 at the APG Sale, also won his heat and looks set to make an immediate impact when he hits the track.

Two-year-old trotters Petite One and Alannah Hall also look to be progressing well, with the smartly bred filly Petite One downing her stablemate by a length in a smart time of 2-01.9.
