Tamworth Showground Soon To Be Know As Paceway Tamworth

In a dramatic but strategic change in direction Harness Racing NSW has successfully secured the Tamworth Showground property thus ensuring uninterrupted racing for the local Club.

The Waikato Stud-owned Fashionably will make her first appearance in the HTL Insurance Maiden 3YO while the nursery’s well-related home-bred Lucy Wyldstyle will debut in the Nulook Aluminium Maiden.

Fashionably is a daughter of Redoute’s Choice and she was a $240,000 Sydney purchase for the stud, who bred and sold her dam, the dual Group One New Zealand Stakes and Queensland Oaks winner Scarlett Lady.


Trained by Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards, Fashionably was put aside after two trials in the autumn and she has come back to run fourth in her last trial at Cambridge earlier this month.

“She’s been working well and we had her in at Pukekohe, but she drew wide so we scratched her,” Te Akau racing manager Brad Taylor said.

“She’s got a nice barrier in five at New Plymouth and we would expect her to run very well.”

Stable jockey Matthew Cameron will be aboard Fashionably and he will also partner Savabeel’s daughter Lucy Wyldstyle.

She was a $200,000 Karaka purchase for Te Akau from Waikato Stud’s draft and is a grand-daughter of Legs, winner of the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks and the Hawke’s Bay Kelt Capital Stakes.

Lucy Wyldstyle will make her first appearance after a couple of minor setbacks since her last trial at Te Teko in August when she finished runner-up.

“She’s had a couple of slight hold-ups with a cold and then the wet tracks, but she’s good now and again we’d expect her to go well,” Taylor said.
