A NEW arrival is always cause for excitement, but when a group of cousins celebrated a newborn last week it was a little different.
They were excited when receiving the news a foal by For A Reason out of Taylobell was born at Yirribee Harness Racing Stud at Wagga Wagga.
She is a full sister to a talented filly – Taylors Reason – who owners Richard Fraser, Maurice McNeill, Peter Taylor and Roslyn Billinghurst have already enjoyed good success with.
She has won five of her 21 starts for the Bathurst connection and is closing in on $70,000 in prize money.
“Taylors Reason, she won a $50,000 race at Menangle about a month ago, one of the Breeders Challenge Blue finals,” Fraser said. “Her mother [Taylobell] has three foals racing at the moment and all three have won races, Taylor Hood and Taylor Robin are the other two.”
The dam of Bathurst owner Ryan Grives’ star mare Ameretto, Eyes Of Courage, also gave birth to a foal, sired by Warrawee Needy.
