All Decked Out Rested Before Spring
Well regarded NZ-bred colt All Decked Out (Darci Brahma-Diamond Deck, by Octagonal) will have a short break before being aimed at stakes races in the spring, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 2YO son of leading NZ sire Darci Brahma and beautifully bred Gr3-winning Octagonal mare Diamond Deck, scored impressively on debut at Ruakaka last weekend, prompting trainer Jason Bridgman to rest the youngster ahead of his 3YO classic season. "There's a Listed race at Ruakaka on September 15 for him and Hawke's Bay (Guineas) after that," commented Bridgman. Diamond Deck's 2nd dam is the Straight Strike mare Shadea, making her a three-quarter sister to champion galloper and successful sire Lonhro.
