The Real Ideal was named WASBA 2 yr olf Colt/Gelding of the Year 2016 – breeder Worthy Park Stables.
This colt was chosen by Peter Anderson on type, apparent maturity, the female line which he knew something of, and those progeny in the family that had raced. This colt has now been revealed as one of the very bright stars for the first year of PACING WA partnerships.
A lovely mature type of horse who got to the races in April 2016, impressively winning his heat of the Gloucester Standardbred 2 yr Sales Classic. He was subsequently second in the final of that race. THE REAL IDEAL won his next start and then 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 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.
THE REAL IDEAL who looks to have some toughness about him and is a class performer, and worked impressively at our Open Day Dec 18, 2016, however, he sustained an injury in a self inflicted stable mishap that has seen him sidelined awaiting the next phase of his career – 2017/18.
