Celebrating Success – Lauriston Bloodstock & Mach Three

As the saying goes, success is best when shared.

With that ethos in mind, nothing brings us greater joy than seeing supporters of Alabar and our stallions achieve success at every level.

When Lauriston Bloodstock’s Anne and Bill Anderson decided to breed their mare Kabbalah Karen B with former Alabar stallion Mach Three, they had their sights set on breeding the best racehorse possible.

“Kabbalah Karen B was a good racemare and had Artsplace and Western Hanover close up in her pedigree. So, to complete the missing link to the Direct Scooter line and add high speed, I chose Mach Three to complete the package of the big three,” said Anne.

The first mating produced $765,000 earner, Our Little General (1:49.8), who won a Victoria Derby and two Breeders Crown finals before continuing his career in the US.

“I went again and struck gold with the resulting foal being multiple Group 1 winner Ladies In Red! A Lauriston horse for life,” Anne added.

Touted as the ‘Winx of harness racing’, Ladies In Red has had 23 starts netting 19 wins and four seconds, and some say that she’s the best pacing mare Australia has ever produced.

“To breed a good horse means everything to me, it’s why I do it. As we all know, breeding horses is a rollercoaster ride, so you’ve got to enjoy the good times,” Anne concluded.

Good luck to Anne, Bill, Emma Stewart and Clayton Tonkin as the great mare prepares to contest the first leg of the mares’ Triple Crown, the Group 3 Make Mine Cullen at Melton on Saturday night!
