Kim and Mark’s visit Kimillsy’s latest colt

Kim and Mark headed across to Arrowfield stud Scone to visit Kimillsy and her 2014 Sebring colt on Sunday. Both Kim and Mark were suitably impressed with the growth and progress of Kimillsy’s 2014 colt by outstanding sire Sebring. “The colt was absolutely lovely, another cracking colt from Kimillsy. He colt has a lovely kind nature and was very inquisitive allowing both Mark and myself to give him a pat. He definitely is a flashy colt with very striking white markings, there is a real presence about the colt”, said Kim.

The colt was born on the 10th August and is now 6 weeks old judging by the photos below Kimillsy’s little man is developing into a outstanding type.

Introducing Mahtoum Lodge

Kim’s long range plan is starting to take shape following the purchase of a 44 acre property late last year with the view to transform it into a boutique spelling and agistment property to complement her training base at Wyong. “It took a while to find the right property but when we did both Mark and I dared to dream, planning and setting the wheels in motion to turn it into a horse friendly agistment complex. It’s exciting seeing our plans come to fruition and once Mahtoum Lodge is up and running the property will become a valuable tool for training racehorses whether it’s spelling or freshening up the gallopers. I’ll be able to keep an eye on the horses giving them my full attention and individual care ’ said Kim.

Stage one is all but complete with completion of the paddocks ‘We now have 17 paddocks ranging in sizes from big day yards to large paddocks where I’d be able to run three of four horses. The fencing has finished all the post and rails have been painted next week the shelters will be up. Pictures of the paddocks below along with the peaceful surrounds.

My Lads Dream to debut at Muswellbrook

Kim Waugh has elected to send first starter My Lads Dream to Muswellbrook on Sunday lining up in the second event Silks Function Centre over 1000m. The Rock Of Gibraltar filly has had the benefit of two recent trials in readiness for her race day debut both over 800 on heavy tracks “My Lads Dream is an improving type who will be better for the race day experience. Both the filly’s trials were run on very heavy tracks and I’d expect her to improve on the firmer surface” said Kim. Senior jockey Nathan Thomas has ridden the filly in both trials and will be aboard on Sunday with the pair jumping from barrier 6.
