Byford based trainer Peter Anderson is Group 1 trainer now associated with Pacing WA. Peter has had some marvellous horses in his stables including outstanding juvenile James Matthew $240,980 who only had 17 lifetime starts before a sad untimely death. James Matthew won 10 consecutive races and 12 overall including:
2 yr old Champagne Classic Group 3
2 yr old Pearl Classic Group 1
2 yr old State Sires Series Group 1
2nd in the 2 yr old Golden Slipper Group 1
Prior to that there was Buck The Odds $307,547 whose career covered 31 wins and 29 places and wins in:
3 yr old State Sires Series Group 1
2004 Interdominion Heat winner
Then there was Shipwreck $279,197 whose career produced 19 wins and 31 places including:
- 2nd WA Derby 2011 Group 1: 3yr State Sires Series Group 1: 3yr State Sires Series Group 1
For Peter, the greatest satisfaction in all of these horses is that they were “babies” that he purchased at the yearling sales. Not ready made horses, but horses that he chose mainly on “type” then nurtured and developed into the excellent racehorses that they became. For him this is by far the greatest challenge and one with the greatest rewards.
For Pacing WA clients, we are lucky to have Peter on board and even more fortunate that he chose a horse we now know as The Real Ideal .
THE REAL IDEAL won 3 races and showed enough speed and class to lead all the way in the:
Westbred Classic Final Group 1 $100,000.
A big thrill for his owners and Peter Anderson. Watch the race here.
- The Real Ideal was named WASBA 2 yr olf Colt/Gelding of the Year 2016 – breeder Worthy Park Stables.
THE REAL IDEAL had some gear problems at two other starts but
finished the two year old season with the record of 6 starts 3 wins 1 second and $89,220 stakemoney plus $5,110 in Westbred bonuses.
