We caught up with one of our resident Racing Tauranga trainers, Mark Blackie, for a quick chat with his latest rising star, Le Castile – an absolutely stunning grey mare.
Le Castile is the winner of two races in her short career to date. After a dominant maiden win at Te Teko she came out at her next start and put away a good field of three year olds at Te Aroha. While her run, on paper in only finishing 8th in last Saturday’s Group 3 Cambridge Breeders Stakes, may have looked a tad disappointing she didn’t receive all favours in the home straight. Le Castile will go for a spell now but is definitely one to follow when she graces the racetracks again in the Spring. She sure can ‘run like hell’.
