A fresh Australian mile record for a two-year-old trotting colt was established by the Love You colt Affaire De Cover of 1:59 – bettering the previous record of 1:59.6 held by Blitzthemcalder by 3/5th of a second – when he won the $30,000 Trot NSW Final at Menangle.

Affaire De Cover, who registered his first success, clocked quarters of 29.7, 30.4, 30.5 and 28.4 on the rainsodden track.

Bred and raced by Tim Cregan, the colt is the fourth winner out of the Live Or Die mare Nigella Bites NZ, who won twice as a pacer at three years.

Another ‘new’ two-year-old winner by Love You was the filly Amour Maternal, bred and owned by Haras Des Trotteurs’ principal Pat Driscoll, who won at her third start at the all-trotters meeting at Maryborough.

Love You was also represented by the Dunedin, New Zealand winner Bev K’s One, while Andoverlov, a winner at the Ashburton Flying Stakes meeting, is from a mare by Love You.

Love You is a member of the powerful Haras Des Trotteurs sire roster for the 2020/21 season.
