The former World’s fastest ever pacer Always B Miki 1.46 had a break out weekend as a Sire in the Southern Hemisphere over the weekend just passed.

Always B Miki, who currently sits in fourth position on the Australian Sires List on average earnings per starter, sired three impressive winners on Australian tracks headlined by the stunning performance of the mare Aardies Express at Menangle on Saturday night.

Having her first start on Australian soil the Kiwi bred mare did all the tough work in the race and then unleashed a 26.6 final quarter to impressively win the Group 3 $50,000 Sibelia Stakes in an eye catching 1.48.9

Her resume now reads – 20 starts, 14 wins and $219,864 in prizemoney.

She is the fifth foal of the Rocknroll Hanover mare Tatijana Bromac, who in turn is a daughter of the Australian bred mare Tandias Courage 1.53.6 $305,236.

Tandias Courage, who was bred by the former HRA Chairman John Bagshaw, is a full sister to the freakish Victorian filly of the late 1990’s in Mother Courage 1.56.9.

At Gloucester Park on Friday night a rising star on the horizon in the form of the Gary Hall trained Mister Smartee took his earnings over the $100,000 plateau with a win over  Miki Jet (also by Always B Miki).

Mister Smartee, who now sports a record of 10 starts, 8 wins and $109,670 in earnings, has his sights set on the rich Golden Nugget race later in the season.

Still in the West, Always B Miki sired the winner of the $30,000 Manea Classic at Bunbury on Saturday night in The Miki Taker.  He showed that great will to win attitude to grab the winners trophy in the shadows of the post.

Back on the east coast, the Always B Miki 2 year old Fate Awaits lost no admirers with his gutsy third placing in the $250,000 Nutrien Final at Melton on Saturday night.

This was his first defeat in 4 starts.  In those 4 starts Fate  Awaits has doubled his purchase price of $24,000 with the promise of much more to come.

Not to be outdone by the performances in Australia, Always B Miki has sired the most impressive 2 year old in New Zealand this season.

At Ascot Park , Invercargill on Sunday the Always B Miki two year old colt Rubira displayed lots of class in claiming victory in the Group One Diamond Creek Farm Classic.

This colt, who is from the Bettors Delight mare Delightful Kas, is now 3 for 3 this season and has already gone past the $100,000 in earnings.

Also on Diamonds Day at Invercargill, the Always B Miki three year old Aardie B Miki finished a close second in the Group Two Southern Oaks Final to the Art Major lass Flying Ellie.

It is worth noting that 5 of the highest 7 earning progeny of Always B Miki bred in Australia have 3 X 3 crosses to Artsplace and the Kiwi bred Mister Smartee is another adding to that list.
