IT’S been a great year for local horse trainer Shea Eden, and the Shea Eden Racing stable tasted more success when three of its horses won at Bairnsdale last Tuesday.
With the success of Ocean Embers in Eden’s first Black Type win at Caulfield in October, the stable has celebrated success in the past week with wins at Kyneton by Sports Writer and the treble at Bairnsdale with Scotopia, Ansinna and Our Delinquent.
This brings Eden’s total winners and place getters to 65 in the past 12 months and sees him in the top 15 in the Trainer Premiership standings.
Eden said it’s been an exciting year for the Eden Racing team.
“Winning the three races at Bairnsdale has just topped off the year,” he said.
He also paid tribute to his dedicated team at Eden Racing for the success of the stable in the past year and thanked owners for their ongoing support and faith shown in him and the stable.
Eden is hoping for a great New Year’s Eve present when the stable’s champion Ocean Embers runs in a race at the Gold Coast, to gain a wildcard entry into the exclusive $1 million Magic Millions race for fillies and mares over 1300m on Saturday, January 14.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the owners and the stable to take Ocean Embers to the Gold Coast with such a prize on offer,” Eden said.
“It was agreed that after her form in the Spring Carnival that the horse would next head to the Gold Coast and so her preparation has been aimed at this race.”
Eden returned from New Zealand recently, where he attended the 2YO Ready to Run Sales with renowned and respected trainer, Peter Moody.
“Peter provided me with the insight into the horses’ breeding and I appreciated the wealth of knowledge that he gave to me,” he said.
Eden brought back three horses from the sale and is happy to chat to anyone who may want more information on the horses and his plans for them.
