Dash Racing

After a long search to find our perfect thoroughbred broodmare, we are very excited to announce we have purchased ‘Princess Jalila’

Made even more special as ‘Dash’ was purchased from our friend Rachel Samsonenko who trains race horses, locally in Geelong! We saw Rachel at Newcomb Show last week end and I mentioned to Rachel we were looking for a tall thoroughbred broodmare.
Rachel had only retired ‘Dash’, so it was perfect timing!

‘Dash’ was born in 2009 and is 16.1/16.2hh dark brown with a star and socks. Has the prettiest face and very leggy. Her sire is ‘Dash for Cash’ and her dam is ‘Abbondanza’.
She has the most amazing temperament. So sweet and follows us around her paddock or along the fences when we walk the laneways next to her paddock.

We plan to A.I. ‘Dash’ with ‘Victoria Tower Wishlist’. We are so excited to see the gorgeous galloway/small hack the two produce :-)

At the beginning of November, we retired Anikka’s pony Torrensway Momento. ‘Milly’ was turned out and was to go in foal to Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. However, Milly was injured in her neck in an unexplained paddock accident. Infection had entered her bloodstream and Milly had surgery. She was not guaranteed to make it through surgery or even after surgery due to the infection. However! Milly is a tough old girl and she has fought through :-) She has healed so well, that she is in season and now running with Victoria Tower Wishlist! We were going to wait til next season but as we nearly lost Milly and had not bred with her and Summer Serenade or Wishlist, we rang the vet and asked if it would be OK and he said “yes.” We chose Wishlist as we hope to breed a bay or black but whatever colour is born, we do not mind at all! The foal will mature around 13hh/13.1hh and we are certain will be a fabulous Child’s (or Adult’s!) pony!

We went and visited Tom today at Clint’s and we were so impressed with how well he had progressed and he is looking magnificent!

We welcome to our stud Crystal Onyx! ‘Tom’ is a 5 year old thoroughbred who finished racing in January 2014, and has now come to live with us :-) We first met Tom when his gate was left open at his property and we caught him and walked him home. I was so impressed with his beauty and how he politely walked next to me, I asked his owner if we could buy him when he retired. Tom towers at 16.1hh and is one of the most impressive looking horses I have ever seen. He will spend 2014 relaxing at home before going to Clint Bilson’s in 2015 to be shown under saddle. This we are extremely excited about!

Exciting news for mare owners East of Melbourne! Victoria Tower Summer Serenade will be shown by Clint Bilson in 2014 and stand at stud at Clint’s property in Somerville. Wonderful opportunity to breed with Serenade while he is in your area! This also means we will not be breeding with Serenade for a couple of years. Therefore, if you were wanting a small pony by him, we have two available - yearling filly VT Heirloom (already a multi Champion and full sister to Victorian SHC Champion VT Sequel and Barastoc and Royal Winner VT Wishlist) and filly foal VT Temptation (full sister to Riegal Ballerina and Riegal Summer Temptation who are both about to make their showing debuts).

Welcome to the world Victoria Tower Temptation! So happy to announce Kolbeach Tempting has foaled an absolutely gorgeous little chestnut filly. Definately 2 socks and maybe even 4. Has the prettiest face with a beautiful blaze. I walked outside to put the horse rugs on the washing line and wondered what all the horses were staring at. I looked at Finn’s paddock and on the ground was her foal, just born! This foal is full sibling to the Riemer family’s Riegal Thumbellina and Riegal Summer Temptation and will mature small pony :-) This photo is taken at 1/2 an hour old :-)

Mirinda Centre Stage is currently running with Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. We are truly so excited as the resulting foal will be full sibling to the multi Supreme Winner Victoria Tower Sequel (owned by Danyel Riemer), colt Victoria Tower Wishlist (being shown by Clint Bilson) and Victoria Tower Heirloom (owned by Belinda Moyes and about to make her showing debut!!) Centre Stage and Summer Serenade have proven themselves as a perfect couple with three out of three ponies being true standout show ponies. This foal will be for sale.

Slide1



Victoria Tower Sequel competed at his first show under saddle and was Champion Pony Under 14hh - not bad considering he is under 12.2hh and up against the big ponies!! Sequel is Victoria Tower Summer Serenade’s first born, so seeing him compete under saddle and also win Champion at his first show was a very special day :-) Sequel is owned by Danyel Riemer and we are so thankful to Danyel and her family for choosing Sequel to be part of their elite show team.

Our search for a broodmare for Victoria Tower Wishlist has finally come to an end! We have been so strict on our requirements for our mare that I was prepared to miss this year and start next year. The mares we currently have are not appropriate for Wishlist for this year as they will either have a foal at foot (and Wishlist will be at Clint Bilson’s so we do not wish to travel a mare and foal), are maidens or his mum! Next year however, we will have a few perfect mares to choose from :-) The reason our search took approximately 6 months is because we were after up to height Section A Riding Pony, Arabian Riding Pony, black, non maiden with excellent temperament and bloodlines. We were not prepared to settle for anything less! We finally found our broodmare :-) Her name is Langtree Ovation and she is by Jackets Bluebird and her dam is Astral Odette by Rotherwood Footlight and she is just under 14hh. The resulting foal between Wishlist and Ovation has a 94% probability of being black and will mature large pony. We are so unbelievably excited to see this foal in 2014 :-)

Wishlist is now back in the stable being show prepped. We saw him recently when we dropped Victoria Tower Love Heart off at Clint’s and he has matured so beautifully. And he is still as pretty as ever!

Pictured below is Wishlist’s first wife; Langtree Ovation :-)

Our two year old filly, Victoria Tower Love Heart (VT Summer Serenade/Hibrie Love Heart by Janevlyn Hearts on Fire) goes to her new home with Clint Bilson tomorrow. Clint will be showing Ellie and then she will be offered for sale. If you would like to express your interest in Ellie, please contact us or Clint Bilson. Pictured below is Ellie after having her bath - she is in a full Winter coat, and still manages to look elegant and leggy!!

This year is certainly going to be a very special year as we will see Victoria Tower Summer Serenade’s first born foal out under saddle! Victoria Tower Sequel is owned by Danyel Riemer and Danyel has broken Sequel in and he will make his debut under saddle this year. Sequel has matured small pony and Danyel is so happy with how he has matured, his easy trainability and his beautiful movement. We can not wait to see Sequel in the ring under saddle and continuing on his garland winning ways like he did as a foal. Pictured below is Victoria Tower Sequel as a foal with Greg Mickan.

Victoria Tower Love Heart (Victoria Tower Summer Serenade/Hibrie Love Heart by Janevlyn Hearts on Fire) has been brought into the stables to be show prepped. ‘Ellie’ will go to her new home with Clint Bilson shortly. Clint will show Ellie and then she will be offered for sale. Ellie is small pony, 2 years old and her resemblance to Victoria Tower Summer Serenade is extraordinary. Even down to her markings with the two back socks and no other markings. Ellie is pictured below with her full Winter’s coat. It is literally about 4cm long and she still looks pretty! We cannot wait to see her once she has her gorgeous Summer’s coat.

Please contact us or Clint if you would like to express your interest in Victoria Tower Love Heart.

Breeding season is fast approaching and we have already received numerous bookings for Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. Our first foal due is by VT Summer Serenade and out of our gorgeous mare Kolbeach Tempting. Another foal we are so eagerly awaiting is by VT Summer Serenade and out of Murraygold Fairylights. This foal will be the first palomino foal we have bred and will mature approx. 11.2hh!! ‘Pinky’, our mare in foal, has plenty of bling and we can only imagine what an amazing foal will be born. All our foals are for sale to competition homes.

Mares6

Pictured below are a few of our mares enjoying being turned out before being brought in for foaling or to be put in foal. We still haven’t found our perfect mare for Wishlist. None of our current mares are suitable as they will either have foal at foot (Wishlist will be at Clint Bilson’s so we don’t wish to travel a mare and foal) and our other two mares without foals at foot will be Beckworth Gypsy Rose who is a maiden and tall so we do not wish to use her for Wishlist’s first covering and then Wishlist’s dam, so we certainly do not wish to use her!

Although we bought Victoria Tower Royalty back for our daughter, we decided to lease him out. Royalty has gone to his new home in New South Wales where he will be shown. Royalty has settled in well and we look forward to following him in the show ring :-)


Another of our horses going to a new home is Hibrie Supermodel. We only recently bought ‘Chloe’ as a broodmare however, we were approached and asked whether we would sell her to be broken in and shown. We agreed as we think it would be so nice to see Chloe out in the show ring before becoming a broodmare and the home offered was excellent. Chloe will go to her new home with Kate Bull in August.

We also donated a service to Victoria Tower Summer Serenade to the Equestrian Victoria fundraiser dinner ‘Christmas In July’. Funds raised go to support the Victorian team. We were so pleased with how much money Summer Serenade raised and we congratulate Renee Kewish on her winning bid!

In late April, Anikka and her pony, Torrensway Momento (Milly), competed at Leighdale Show. We had such a fun and relaxing day and were pleasantly surprised at the large turnout for such a late show. In each class, there were approximately 10 - 15 competitors. Anikka placed 2nd in her rider class and Milly won Childs Pony Under 14hh.

Victoria Tower Royalty has returned home and we are so happy with how he has matured and what a pretty boy he is! Having not seen Royalty since he was a yearling, I was very excited when he walked off the truck from South Australia and see how beautiful he was. Just like I remembered :-) Royalty is now at our instructor’s home being returned to work. Anikka will play a major role in this, as Royalty will be Anikka’s galloway. We wish for them to bond and learn together, hoping to make a life long partnership together.

Pictured below is Royalty when he arrived from South Australia.

Victoria Tower Heirloom left for her new home with Belinda Moyes in April and is currently being show prepped. ‘Lolly’ is maturing beautifully and we look forward to seeing her at the upcoming shows.

We are very excited to announce that Victoria Tower Royalty is coming home! Roy has been living in South Australia since he was 16 months old. In his short saddle career he has won at numerous big shows many Newcomers and Rising Star awards. What makes Roy's return home even more special is his dam is our daughter’s pony 'Torrensway Momento' by Syon Royal Portrait.

Royalty is galloway and Registered Riding Pony and Show Horse Council.

Wishlist competed at Bunyip Agricultural Show, his last show for the season. He and Clint finished the season perfectly, winning Champion Open Breed Stallion or Colt and also Champion Derivitive Stallion or Colt. I have been so impressed with Clint and how he has cared for and shown Wishlist. Prior to this show, Wishlist even had a few weeks break where he was turned out and able to relax, before being brought back into the stables and prepared for Bunyip Show. Wishlist will now be turned out for WInter and be back for the Spring where he will be shown again and also stand at stud to a limited amount of mares.

After searching for our perfect broodmare for Victoria Tower Wishlist, we found her very close to home - about 1km away! Initially we were searching for a small pony mare but decided we would prefer to breed an up to height large show pony. We were very particular in the qualities we were searching for and would not compromise on any. We wanted prettiness, fine boned, big movement, beautiful temperament and proven, successful bloodlines.

We purchased Hibrie Supermodel. Her sire is the Australian Royal Supreme Winner and New Zealand Pony of the Year Willowcroft Distinction by Willowcroft Regal Emblem. Chloe’s (Hibrie Supermodel) dam is Ariston Catwalk who is a Show Horse Council Winner and numerous Royal and Barastoc achievements.

Chloe is 14.2hh Section A Riding Pony and we really are excited to breed her with Victoria Tower Summer Serenade.

Victoria Tower Heirloom continues to mature beautifully. The next stage of her life has begun and she is currently being weaned. Similar to all Summer Serenade’s foals, she is coping very well and showing us she will be a relaxed, easy going pony. Her movement is truly beautiful and is so similar to her sire’s movement at the same age. Heirloom is certain to have a successful, wonderful career and bring alot of happiness to her new owner, Belinda Moyes, home.

After being at Clint Bilson’s for only a month now, VT Wishlist competed at Barastoc Horse of the Year. We are so very happy and proud of our darling Wishlist. Not only for his success in the show ring, but also how relaxed he is - quietly standing at the truck, easy to prepare. A true delight.
Results achieved were:
1st - In Hand Show Pony Riding Pony Colt or Gelding Yearling. Clint received wonderful comments from the UK judge, commenting on Wishlist’s beautiful type.
2nd - Led Open Pony 12.2hh and Under out of a strong, large class. Wishlist was the baby in the class, up against the older mature ponies, so was such a wonderful achievement for him.
Thank you so much to Clint and his team for such a wonderful job you have done with Wishlist. Hard to believe a month ago Wishlist was at my home, having a relaxing life and not even had a bit in his mouth!

Another successful show today for Wishlist and Clint. Competing at Korumburra Agricultural Show, they won Champion Open Breeds Youngstock, 4 Years and Under. Plus Champion Arabian Riding Pony or Arabian Pony Colt, Filly, Mare or Gelding. I am so pleased with Wishlist and his achievements but I must say, I am not surprised. From the day he was born, you could see he was extra special.

Another show for Wishlist, being prepared and campaigned by Clint Bilson, and another fabulous result! At their second show together, Wishlist won Champion Open Breeds Stallion or Colt. Such a wonderful result for Wishlist, competing against the older, more physically mature colts and stallions. Wishlist was relaxed and performed like a professional. You would think he had been shown his whole life :-)

Victoria Tower Wishlist attended his first ever show at the Arabian Summer Show 2013. Fabulous results were achieved placing Top 5 Arabian Riding Pony. 10 days earlier, Wishlist had never had a bit in his mouth and never left our property. A huge credit to Clint Bilson who achieved so much with Wishlist in such a short amount of time.

We are very excited to announce our gorgeous filly foal, Victoria Tower Heirloom, has been sold to a wonderful show home with Belinda Moyes. Belinda saw Lolly when she brought her mare over to be bred with Victoria Tower Summer Serenade and instantly fell in love. Lolly will go to her new home once she is weaned.

On the 24th November, Mirinda Centre Stage gave birth to a gorgeous, leggy chestnut filly with four matching socks! At 9pm Anikka, our 9 year old daughter, checked the horses and came in the house, commenting that Centre Stage was walking around with her tail in the air. I went outside and checked her. She had a little wax and within 30 minutes had given birth. Was such a remarkable experience for myself and children to see.

It was a very memorable day for us, as it is also Victoria Tower Summer Serenade’s birthday! Pictured below is Anikka and our, yet to be named, 16 hours old foal.

Kolbeach Tempting (Fairley Tempest/Kirreway Easy Beat) is in foal to Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. This foal will be the full sibling to fillies Riegal Thumbelina and Riegal Summer Temptation, pictured below. Due October 2012, this foal will be for sale as a filly or gelding.

Due to popular demand, we are currently increasing our broodmare numbers!! We are excited to introduce our new Galloway broodmare Beckworth Gypsy Rose. Rose is Section A Riding Pony and by Sufton Romany Lore (imported) and out of a very pretty thoroughbred. Rose is leggy, tall, pretty and elegant and we cannot wait to see what she and Victoria Tower Summer Serenade, and in the upcoming years Victoria Tower Wishlist, produce. Rose was in a paddock with a dozen broodmares at Beckworth Stud and she immediately caught my eye with her height and elegance. We thank Prue Riddell for a lovely day showing us her beautiful ponies and galloways. The horses and property were all presented immaculately.


We are searching for a black thoroughbred or Riding Pony/Thoroughbred broodmare approximately 15hh. Must have a wonderful temperament and be pretty, show type. In addition, we are also searching for up to height, small and large Section A Riding Ponies with beautiful temperaments and pretty, show type as well. If you feel you have a mare who meets these descriptions, we would love to hear from you.

On the 7th October, we attended the Malibu Park and Whitmere Stud Stallion Parade held at Malibu Park. We had such a wonderful day and were so proud of Victoria Tower Summer Serenade’s relax demeanor and professionalism. We received so many beautiful photos, we have now added an additional page to our website dedicated to the stallion parade. We invite you to view the page and enjoy the many beautiful photos of our simply breath-taking stallion Victoria Tower Summer Serenade :-)

We are excited to announce our latest sponsor - Sandy Bryant's Wonder Horse! After trialling Wonder Horse on Victoria Tower Summer Serenade, Victoria Tower Wishlist and Torrensway Momento, we were more than happy!! Wonder Horse is an organically stabilised essential trace mineral supplement with vitamin B12. Liquid form and only required to administer once a week and straight into their feed; the horses love it! Coats are amazing, so soft and shiny and each horse has become a deeper colour than usual. We are now even giving it to the broodmares!

The breeding season isn't for a few months, but we have already received alot of enquiries and bookings for Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. We are so proud of Summer Serenade as he continues to prove himself as a sire. We are continually contacted by owners who are so pleased with their foals by him, as he continues to pass on his prettiness, movement and quiet temperament. There will be quite a few of Summer Serenade's progeny entering the show ring soon, not only ponies but also galloways and hacks.

In April, Victoria Tower Tinkerbell (Victoria Tower Summer Serenade/Hibrie Black Swan), left for her new home with Tracey Heath. We were so happy with Tinkerbell. Similar to all our VT Summer Serenade foals, she was so easy to wean, tie, wash, rug and lead. Even walking straight onto the float when she left. We wish Tracey and Tinkerbell all the best for a wonderful future together.

Victoria Tower Sequel (Victoria Tower Summer Serenade/Mirinda Centre Stage) competed with owner Danyel Riemer and, once again, Sequel won his classes. We are very proud of Sequel, VT Summer Serenade’s first foal, and look forward to watching his saddle career with Danyel. We are sure they will have a lot of fun and success together.

In January, Anikka attended Kingston Agricultural Show aboard her beautiful pony Torrensway Momento. Anikka and ‘Milly’ had another successful day with Anikka placing second in her Open Rider 8 - 10 Years Old class in a large, competitive class and then were awarded first place for Open Show Pony 13.2hh - 14hh. We had such a fun day and we were so proud of both Anikka and Milly.

Victoria Tower Tinkerbell, by Victoria Tower Summer Serenade, made an early entrance to the world, arriving 10 days before her due date. It was a relief looking out the window in the morning and seeing a healthy little bay filly drinking milk from her mum (Hibrie Black Swan.) Black Swan had not waxed up and did not show signs of foaling, so it was a pleasant surprise seeing Tinkerbell healthy and happy. We named her Tinkerbell as she is such a pretty, petite little filly. She has the most extraordinary long, fine legs and the prettiest face with big poppy eyes. Tinkerbell will be offered for sale at weaning.

VT Tinkerbell

After waiting 7 weeks past Mirinda Centre Stage's due date, we were so relieved when she finally foaled a healthy colt foal. Not only healthy, but an absolute stunner! We have named him Victoria Tower Wishlist and he has the most amazing colour, a dark chocolate colour, with a star and sock. Once again, Victoria Tower Summer Serenade has passed on his prettiness and movement, not to mention his quiet temperament! Wishlist is pictured above, only 8 days old.
Levens Just An Angel has also been scanned and confirmed in foal to Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. This foal is sure to be a sweet little one, who will mature small pony.

Victoria Tower Sequel, by Victoria Tower Summer Serenade, made a wonderful return to the show ring. Now 2 years old, Sequel, in Ring 1, won Open Pony Up To 12hh and then was awarded Reserve Champion.

On the 9th April, our 7 year old daughter, Anikka, aboard her beautiful pony Torrensway Momento, competed at her, and her pony’s, first dressage test at the Australian Pony Owners and BreedersDressage Championship. We were so proud of them, completing the test so well, receiving fantastic comments and scores from the judge and placing 6th! The breeding season saw the arrival of more gorgeous foals, both locally and interstate, by Victoria Tower Summer Serenade. He is already proving himself as a sire, passing on his prettiness, movement and quiet temperament to his foals and who are already winning Supremes in the show ring. This year, we chose not to campaign VT Summer Serenade and instead stand him full time at stud and concentrate on breeding. We were more than thrilled with the amount and quality of the mares and we look forward to the arrival of their foals this coming season.

Anikka and Milly


In April, we also welcomed our gorgeous new broodmare Levens Just An Angel. Angel is such a sweet little mare by Royal Command of Beckworth and only 12hh, so we look forward to breeding beautiful small ponies with her and Victoria Tower Summer Serenade.

Victoria Tower Sequel, was prepared and campaigned by Greg Mickan and Terry Van Heythuysen at the foal shows. The first show for Sequel was the APSB Western Promotional Group Foal Show where he was awarded Champion Open Breeds Foal, Champion Riding Pony Foal and Supreme Champion Open Breeds Foal. A week later, Sequel attended the VAHA Petstock Youngstock show, another very successful show, where he was awarded Champion Riding Pony, Supreme Champion Open Breed Foal, Champion Arabian Riding Pony and Supreme Champion Arabian Derivitive. At the Riding pony Foal Show, he was second in a very strong colt class and was then awarded Reserve Champion, once again, beautifully presented by Greg and Terry and led by Greg. We could not be more pleased with the professionalism of greg and terry and the care given to Sequel.
