Tricolours has gotten off to a winning start with Pride Racing. Pride Racing and Tricolours joined forces at the Inglis Easter yearling sales to purchase an impressive filly by So You Think. She is a strong filly, with great bone and an intelligent head. James had no problems syndicating this girl and we very much looked forward to her arrival for her first prep.

With the August in training sales approaching both James and Joe saw this as a great opportunity for Tricolours to invest in some ready made racehorses while his young stock were given the appropriate time and education. James and Joe travelled to Melbourne and not only returned with one but two very nice types.

The homework paid off and now Tricolours and Pride Racing are already celebrating their winning duo.

Pecans is the daughter of Skilled who only had the one win under belt. On her debut for Pride Racing, Pecans hit the line strong to run second in a well respected mid week at Canterbury. At her second start, Pecans broke through at Gosford and followed up with an impressive win at her home track at Warwick Farm with jockey Corey Brown.

Joe couldn't be happier with what this mare has achieved in just her first prep in her new stable. We are very pleased for her connections and she is looking to be a very smart buy considering she was purchased for only $50,000 and has already won over $65,000 in prize money. As we all know, a profit in a first preparation is hard to come by but this little mare looks to have found her form and is on her way up.

Ticked was Tricolours and Pride Racing's second purchase from the Melbourne in training sale. She was well bred and lucky for us came with a cheap price tag. She is by Medaglia D'Oro and from the same family as Pinwheel. Joe felt she had good improvement in her and we had plenty to work with.

At just her first start for Tricolours, Ticked ran a very impressive fourth coming from last and swooping late. She gave every indication that she was looking for further so we stepped her up in trip with each start. It was her fourth start that she found the ground she was looking for and broke through to win over 1800m with Josh Adams at Hawkesbury.

Ticked is a mare that comes with a big heart. The change of environment and training seems to have given this girl the winning confidence she needed. Purchased for just $26,000, she has already won over $23,000 in prize money so is very close to giving her new connections a profit in her first prep too.

Pride Racing and Tricolours are very much looking forward to the future with Fasika, Pecans and Ticked in the stable. We are lucky to have gotten off to a winning start and with the upcoming sales fast approaching, we can't help but look forward to the coming season.

Congratulations to both Ticked and Pecan's new connections. It's great to see Tricolours in the winning circle in just their first season with some successful purchases.
