Racing: Owner hopes for wins at Addington

By Taylor Strong

Dunedin owner Steve Thompson is hoping his good fortune can continue at Addington tonight when he is represented by four horses.

Thompson, through his new bloodstock company, Thompson Bloodstock, races Tandias Bromac, winner of the Sires' Stakes heat for 2-year-old fillies at Forbury Park on Thursday night.

He is in the ownership of Star Of Van Gogh, The Fiery Ginga, Chancellor Cullen and Living The Dream, all engaged at Addington tonight.

Star Of Van Gogh, first-up winner of a heat of the Young Guns series at Alexandra Park in February, is in a heat of the Sires' Stakes for 3-year-old colts and geldings.

Living The Dream was a winner at Addington two starts back and finished third there last week.

Chancellor Cullen was fourth at Addington last week.

The Fiery Ginga is in the NZ Trotting Championship.

Tandias Bromac is trained by Ken Barron, who prepares Star Of Van Gogh and Chancellor Cullen (five wins).

Thompson paid $67,500 for Tandias Bromac at the premier yearling sale last year when she was offered by Bromac Lodge operated by Bob McArdle.

"I have always bought colts but I was looking at a filly as a possible foundation mare for the company," Thompson said. "I liked her as she was a half sister to Tatijana Bromac, a top filly last season."
