Broodmare Lettucereason had a superb week last Saturday Leap To Fame smashed the track record winning the Queensland Cup in a mile rate of 1.51.1, three days later his half-brother Swayzee (pictured above) took on the Kiwis across the ditch in the New Zealand Cup and broke the Kiwi hearts taking the major prize.
The half brother look likely to clash at ID23 next month.
Lettucereason surely is the frontrunner for the national Broodmare of the Year award in 2023.
