A new video released by Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria (TBV) tells the story of the early lives of three Victorian bred Group 1 winners who are aiming for further glory this spring.
Redzel, Le Romain and Written By all feature in the video with interviews of the Victorian breeders who helped raise them to be the champions they are today. All three Victorian bred heroes will play big roles in the coming Spring Racing Carnival with each aiming to reproduce their Group 1 winning success.
The Kris Lees trained Le Romain was bred at north-east Victoria’s Greta West Stud for loyal clients, the Carusi family.
John and Laurie McCarthy at Greta West Stud are strong believers in letting horses grow naturally at their farm - one of Victoria’s oldest family owned studs - and Le Romain has certainly been a beneficiary of this philosophy.
“The environment we have here, with good size paddocks and lush pasture is the best way, as it’s all about the balance. His dam Mignard is still going strong, and she is a favourite on the farm,” McCarthy said.
The video is part of the Victoria to Victory series produced by Jo McKinnon for TBV. It can be viewed here
