Four-year-old mare La Mouline (NZ) (Showcasing) has continued her dream run in Western Australia with a last to first demolition of her rivals at Ascot on Saturday taking her winning tally to four in-a-row this preparation and with the way she has been finishing off her races, she is every chance to continue that run of success for trainer Adam Durant and owner, Bob Peters.

Purchased privately after her placing in the Group Three Taranaki 2YO Classic under the guidance of Karen Zimmerman, La Mouline is five from six in Australia so far, the only blot in her copy book to date being her runner-up finish in her first start this preparation, beaten just a neck. With her three-year-old season lost to injury, all roads look set to lead to further black type in the weeks ahead.

Another Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream) filly sold across the Tasman as a stakes performed two-year-old was So Far Sokool (NZ) . Runner-up in the Listed Great Northern Foal Stakes at just her third start for the stable of Peter and Dawn Williams, So Far Sokool was subsequently purchased by OTI Racing and she claimed further blacktype on Saturday when runner-up in the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes at Sandown. And yesterday, Showcasing landed his first two-year-old winner for the season with Showgals (NZ) who was very impressive on debut at Muswellbrook for trainer Gary Portelli.

"It's nice to see the results continue for Showcasing after Carnival's great win at Riccarton last week," said Haunui Farm's Managing Director, Mark Chitty. "Now that the weather finally looks to have made a turn for the better, we can look forward to some solid results over the summer period where traditionally, we've seen Showcasing's progeny come to the fore," said Mark. "And Showgals' race is certainly worth watching, she was very professional and I think we will see more from her in the future."

Showcasing has almost completed serving his 2017 book of mares and in a month's time, will board the plane to head back to the Northern Hemisphere where once again he will command a fee of £35,000.
