Petite One

Waimate (South Canterbury) owner- breeders Lex and Heather Williams have prospects in feature trotting races on both sides of the Tasman this week.

They have Petite One in the  $40,000 Sires Stakes Aged Trotters Championship at Addington tonight (Friday) and One Over Da Moon in the  $A20,000 Cranbourne Trotters Cup at Cranbourne tomorrow night.

Both trotters are having their first starts from new stables with new drivers. Petite One, who has not raced  for 17 months, is now trained at Woodend Beach by Greg and Nina Hope. A workout win at Rangiora on May 3 indicated the 5-year-old Angus Hall – Petite Sunset mare was forward. Blair Orange has the drive.

“Petite One’s knee caved in and we treated her and took an embryo Love You filly from her when she was out,’’ said Lex Williams.

Petite One won six races when trained by Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen. She won over 3200m in 4.04.9 (a record for a mare) at the 2015 New Zealand Cup meeting and won a Super Series race at Addington.

Over Da Moon, the winner of 21 races. including five in Australia, is now trained by Lance Justice in Victoria. One Over Da Moon has to be rated under free-for-all conditions tomorrow night.

The  Majestic Son – One Over Kenny entire had his most recent win at Alexandra Park in September when prepared by Tony Herlihy.  One Over Da Moon won eight for Herlihy and eight (including Harness Jewels and NZ Trotting Stakes at two) for Paul Nairn. He won four, including The Holmfield at Melton and a heat of the Breeders Crown at Maryborough for  Chris Lang and a heat of the 2016 Australia Trotters Championship at Ballarat for Chris Alford.

One Over Da Moon has sired two foals, colts out of Anna Castleton and Landora’s Pearl for the Williams. Both are rising 2-year-olds.
