Shez All Rock has first foal
By Dave Di Somma - Harness News Desk
A sensational filly on the track, Shez All Rock is a Mum, for the first time.
Owned by high profile expatriate Kiwi Chris Ryder in New Jersey, Shez All Rock has had a colt to boom sire Bettor’s Delight. The colt was born on April 27 and the photos of him were taken at 10 days old.
Ryder bought Shez All Rock after she won the New South Wales Oaks. In 11 starts she had 10 wins and a second, also taking out the Victoria and New Zealand Oaks and the three year old Diamond at the 2018 Harness Jewels. Her total winnings were just shy of $450,000.
“I brought her over here to the U.S. to race but she had a continuing knee problem and I did not race her,” said Ryder.
Intially the filly was trained by Mark Pitt in Tasmania before successfully linking up with Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen at the All Stars Stable in Christchurch.
Ryder is hopeful that he has “an excellent broodmare”.
He already has plans to breed her to the 2019 three-year-old colt of the year Bettor’s Wish, who Ryder co-owns and trained.
