JWR unveils two debutants at Moe today with kiwi filly TROIS VALLEES (Race 5) and former David Hayes horse VICIOUS (Race 8) making their first appearances for the stable.

Bred and raised by Sir Peter Vela's famous Pencarrow Stud in New Zealand, Rip Van Winkle filly, TROIS VALLEES, has showed average ability at the trials and should run well today.

"It's pretty special having a runner for Sir Peter Vela and the whole Vela family. He is one of NZ's greatest breeders and it would be fantastic to train a winner for him. Trois Vallees is a nice filly. She will be more of a seven and eight furlong horse but I am still expecting a good debut today".Above: Trois Vallees as a yearling

VICIOUS was formerly trained by John Hawkes and David Hayes before Laurence Eales transferred him to JWR.

"Laurence has always held this horse in good regard and felt that he would enjoy a sea change. It's never easy taking over horses from the big stables but he is loving life and his gallops have all been excellent. He should run very well today".

Our Pins filly has just turned 2 and had her first gallop this morning.

"I was rapt with her gallop this morning. She does it very easily. She has a big fluent action. I know it's an early call but she might be a good filly for The Championships in Sydney. She is strong and powerful and has a fantastic attitude so I can't see why she won't shape up in the Autumn".

There are only 2 shares left in this filly so don't hesitate to call Julian (0427 662 977) or email ( to reserve your share.

Hungarian import THUNDER TEDDINGTON looks set for a good spring after a pleasing first up run last week at Sandown.

"He was back last and out of the picture for most of the straight but he got warm late and really hit the line hard. He reeled off the fastest last 200m split which was a great sign going forward".

"He is a 2400m plus horse so it was exciting to see him hit the line over 1600m. He will now run in the Harry White Classic over 2400m in 3 weeks time".


Fantastic to see MACQUARIE MAGIC return to the winners circle with a nice win at Wodonga last week. He was a $40k buy at the 2013 Magic Millions Sale and notched up his third win for his owners Noel and Sue McFarlane from Newcastle. Well done guys!
