Mike Tanev - Who's Aardie?
Canadian owner Mike Tanev has confirmed his star filly Aardie's Express will race exclusively from New Zealand, and not head to North America.
The Toronto-based Tanev spoke to HRNZ last week following her win in the Southern Oaks at Ascot Park on Invercargill. It was her sixth win in seven starts.
Tanev talked about that race, why he bought her, why all his horses have the Aardie name and a lot more besides.
