What's the word on the Arden Breds who went through the ring at the NZB Standardbred Sales in February?
* Captaintreacherous colt Perilous Arden, out of Raindowne, started his education at Arden Lodge. John likes the way he took everything in his stride and says that he is a quick learner. He has a mature attitude despite being a youngster born 11th January 2020. He has now been sold and is being educated at Craig Ferguson Racing Stables. Craig says he is going around good..is well behaved and pacing well in the cart.
Here he is on the 21st May after being worked at Craig's.
* Johanna Arden (Vincent/ Young Tegan) has completed the first stage of her education with Tim Trathen. She is currently at Arden Lodge.
* Denise Ottley was educating Divine Arden (Art Major/Real Wings) for Simon Pulley where the word was "She is a lovely filly." She is being be trained at Todd Racing - currently spelling.
* First Choice Arden (Bettor's Delight/Arden's Choice) has been broken in at Grant Payne's and has made very good progress. She is very sensible and is doing everything right. John and Judy got to see her in action and are happy that she has been retained. She is currently at Arden Lodge.
