Kiwi Mare Joins Waller Yard

Tuesday, 31st July 2018

Ivy's Court (Choisir-Courtney, by Montjeu) is the latest Kiwi galloper to transfer to the stable of champion Sydney trainer Chris Waller, reports NZ Racing Desk. The rising 5YO mare left the care of Cambridge trainer John Bell last Monday with a record of two wins and four placings from 10 starts, with her latest win being over 1600 metres at Pukekohe two months ago. "She has gone over there to try and get some black type," Bell said. "It's a good opportunity for her." Ivy's Court will continue to be raced by her owner-breeders, Ann and Darryl Courtney-O'Connor, who have continued to breed from her dam, the three-race winner Courtney. Courtney is a half-sister to Gin Dartre, who won five races and earned black type when winning the Listed 2009 South Island Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes (1600m).
