Buster Brady is New Zealand Cup bound and getting fitter by the day, going by his authoritative win in today’s harness racing trial at Ashburton Raceway.

The big Real Desire gelding who is nominated for the New Zealand Cup in November, is trained at Weedons by Kyle Austin, and was driven in the trial win today by Blair Orange.  

Buster Brady began safely in today’s race and settled last of the five-horse field. Orange started his move from the back at the 900m and sat parked until hitting the go button in the home straight. Buster cruised to the line without being extended in a time of 3-05.6 for the 2400m stand.

He ripped home from the 800m in a sizzling 54.7 (hand timed), with the 400m cut out in 26.7.

Buster Brady is currently a $51.00 chance for the New Zealand Cup in the TAB fixed odds FF win futures market.

Earlier in the day Orange drove a smart 3yo colt called Stunin Love (Stunin Cullen - Love To Live) to victory in impressive fashion.

Stunin Love is a half-brother to three-time New Zealand Cup champion Terror To Love. He is owned by Terry McDonald and Eddie Griffin and trained by Paul Court.

The speedy colt looked a good horse in the making when he came from three deep on the fence to swamp the leaders in the last 100m to win easily. He ran the 2400m in 3-01.3 with closing sectionals of 58.3 and 28.0
