The Last Shower Caps-Off Great Week for Ballymore NZ

An impressive return to the winners enclosure for The Last Shower at Tauranga on Saturday, capped off a great week for Ballymore Stable NZ with our stable and owners colours featuring prominently in the commentators call.

Cruising to a four-length win over 1400m to record her second raceday success, The Last Shower followed the recent wining example set by stablemate Graphic, whilst fellow team members Everlong, The Hotz, Asadauskaite, Rhythms of Nature, Mrs Neat and The Fire Inside, all chimed in to fill top three places in their respective races.

Raced by Geoff Griffiths, Mark Ollerenshaw, her breeder Gerald Bell, Craig Ibbotson and The Flagan Club Racing Syndicate, The Last Shower, now a four-year-old mare had shown plenty of ability as a three-year-old, with her return that form naturally impressing co-trainer Chad Ormsby.

“We were very happy to see The Last Shower back in winning form and she won with so much authority she definitely looks like she will go on with it” said Chad.

“She showed plenty at three and did spend time in the Melbourne Stable and she raced at Group 1 level in the Queensland Oaks and the stable has always had a good opinion of her” he added.

A half-sister Shylock’s Daughter, who was a multiple race winner in Australia for Ballymore, The Last Shower looks to have an exciting summer ahead and Chad noted that whilst no fixed plans were in place, he will assess her this week before mapping out a summer racing calendar for her.
