Open Day For Eliza Park International Aug 29
Eliza Park International's Open Day is scheduled to take place from 12pm to 4pm on Friday 29 August. Visitors are welcome to attend and enjoy a gourmet BBQ and fine wines at 56 Mt Eliza Road at Kerrie, Victoria. The stallion parade will begin at 1pm and will feature new recruits Fiorente (Monsun-Desert Bloom, by Pilsudski) and undefeated Northern Meteor colt Fighting Sun (Northern Meteor-Irish Darling, by Ivory's Irish). Last year's Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente hails from a successful European family. His grand-dam, Hellenic (Darshaan), won the 1990 Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks and has produced Gr1 winners Islington, Mountain High and Greek Dance, while Fighting Sun, winner of the Listed Canonbury Stakes, is the highest rated 2YO colt by the ill-fated Northern Meteor and is out of Gr1 SAJC Australasian Oaks winner Irish Darling.
