He was one of the fastest and most exciting pacers of the last decade and has many memorable moments on the track, including his world record equalling 1:46:4 performance in his William Haughton Memorial elimination at the Meadowlands Race Track in world record time, and as a Two year old, when qualifying, running his last quarter in 26:3.
At two, he was the 2011 O’Brien Award winner for two-year-old pacing colts/geldings. He won the Battle of Waterloo elimination at Grand River, an Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS) Gold elimination at Flamboro Downs, and the elimination and final at Mohawk Racetrack, the elimination and final at Rideau Carleton Raceway, the final at Woodbine Racetrack, and the OSS Gold Super Final at Woodbine Racetrack.

At four, he won an Aquarius Series leg, his US Pacing Championship elimination and his William Haughton Memorial elimination at the Meadowlands Racetrack in World Record Time.

There are 5 or 6 Millionaires on the Maternal side of that family, but he is the best one and he is the fastest. He is a step above his time.
We have tried to keep the Service Fee at a reasonable price, to afford people across the board the opportunity to breed to this extreme individual.
Apart from a test breeding year where he bred 5 foals, two of them selling at the yearling sales for an average of $33,000, Warrawee Needy stood his first year at stud in Canada this year, where he was extremely well received, breeding around 140 mares.
Quote from Mac Lilley – Where he stood at Stud in Canada
I said two years ago, that I would never stand another horse unless I get something special. Then this horse came along and we were able to make a deal on him because I think he is that something special. Im excited about him Mac Said, You can breed him to almost any mare because hes kind of an out-cross. I think that’s important because we are getting Standardbreds bred up pretty fine,

Quote from Mark Ford – Owner Warrawee Needy
Ford is the youngest trainer in history to reach milestones of $10 million and $20 million in career earnings. He is also the only trainer to have won a pair of million-dollar races before his 30th birthday. Ford stepped into the national spotlight with 2000 Horse of the Year Gallo Blue Chip.
I thought Warrawee Needy was the greatest horse I’d ever been around,” Ford stated. “He can go fast, so quick. He’s got such a great turn of speed and just such a nice horse.




Yirribee Stud is extremely excited to announce they will be standing not one, but two, high class, high  profile stallions this coming season.

This, we feel will be a major shot in the arm for NSW Breeders

Further news on these exciting stallions  will be released in the next few weeks.

Caribbean blaster
Yirribee Stud is eagerly awaiting the first crop of foals from the millionaire son of Bettors Delight – Caribbean Blaster, to arrive. There are some magnificent mares in foal to this remarkable stallion and we are all excited about the arrival of some of them. He is a beautifully bred horse, he’s by Bettors Delight and he is a very impressive looking horse to go with it, so he pretty much ticks all the boxes.

Caribbean Blaster will stand his second season at Yirribee Stud and with a Service Fee of $2,750.00 (discounts apply) and an added bonus of the HRNSW Colonial Stallion Rebate of $500, makes him a very affordable sire for the breeder. There are some great incentives coming out of HRNSW and with the NSW Breeders Challenge continuing to expand, he would be an ideal choice for the savvy breeder.

His sire Bettor’s Delight as a champion stallion and has dominated the Leading Sires lists in the Southern Hemisphere for the past three years.

Caribbean Blaster is from the Safely Kept mare Kalypso and was bred and sold at the 2009 APG sales for $70,000 by the Bathurst based Brooklyn Lodge. He is thus a half brother to four winners including Protikori ($212,109), placed in four Group One events, and the $125,000 winning Kalypson Kid 1:56.4.

He was named by majority owner Rob Nalder, after the world famous cricketer Viv Richards. Nalder has been involved in Harness Racing for the past 30 years and has raced many horses including Group One winners About to Rock, Renaissance Man and Conrod Straight. His passion and commitment to Harness Racing and breeding is undeniable .

Two people who Caribbean Blaster did leave an indelible impression on are the husband and wife team Andy and Kate Gath.

“He’s the most perfect horse I’ve ever trained” said Andy. “He’s everything you want in a horse – great gaited, a great constitution and amazing recovery rate after a tough run, perfect conformation and always gave 120% in all his races.”

Sadly Caribbean Blaster suffered a suspensory injury mid year 2014 and commenced a new chapter in his best selling life story – a stud career at Yirribee Stud in Southern NSW.

As a three year old, there were signs that he could develop into a “Big Time” horse – second in the Group One South Australian Derby, a fast closing second to Sushi Sushi in the Breeders Crown Semi Final and then a close up fourth place finish from the 12 hole in the Breeders Crown Final – his own mile rate being 1:54.9 for the 2240 metres.

Just five days later Caribbean Blaster won The Graduate, a 2240 metre standing start race, in a 1:57.5 mile rate – an Australasian record which remains to this day.

“The turning point in Caribbean Blaster’s career came when he triumphed in the Chariots Of Fire at Menangle” said Andy Gath.

That night he defeated Sushi Sushi, Excel Stride and the hotshot Kiwi Hands Christian in 1:52.6, last quarter in 26.6 seconds.

The defining victory in his career was the 2012 Victoria Cup when he was handed the number 13 saddlecloth to start with.

Aided by a brilliant Kate Gath steer, the Blaster defeated Australia’s best including Im Themightyquinn, Smoken Up, Mah Sish, Washakie and The Gold Ace to name a few.

Caribbean Blaster raced on 79 occasions in a predominately four season career for 24 victories and prizemoney of $1,113,678 – he passed the million dollar mark when defeating the mighty warrior Smoken Up in the 2014 South Australian Cup. He was driven in every one of those starts by the effervescent Kate Gath.

Caribbean Blaster’s Service Fee will be $2,750 (incl GST) and will include discounts, loyality discounts and multiple mare discounts. A $500 rebate will also apply on registration of your foal with HRNSW. Bookings and all enquiries can be directed through the office on 02 69331217 or by email at

Siejka eyes first Group 1 in Breeders Crown

Breeders Crown Semi Final

Ameretto and Ashlee Siejka have drawn pole for Sunday’s Breeders Crown Final
The excitement in Ashlee Siejka’s voice is palpable. Asked what a Breeders Crown win aboard Ameretto would mean come Sunday at Tabcorp Park Melton she beamed: “It would be great … I haven’t got a Group 1 yet. To get it with this filly would be pretty special.”

The daughter of Million Dollar Cam drew barrier one for the $174,000 three-year-old fillies’ Crown final at today’s barrier draw, while her key dangers – Katy Perry, The Orange Agent and Start Dreaming – drew gates 9, 10 and 11 respectively.

If you weren’t impressed by Ameretto’s Semi-Final win on Saturday night, you’re a harsh, harsh marker.

She set a new all-ages track record over 2200m at Ballarat – 1:54.4 – with the last half covered in 56.2 seconds.

It came about after Katy Perry posted a supersonic lead time of 40.5secs to find the top from gate seven.

When Katy Perry put the leader’s-back runner Our Classical Art to the sword at the 500m Siejka was able to drop Ameretto into the trail for a cart into the stretch.

Once Siejka eased Ameretto to the outside late the talented filly extended with style and pulled clear for a 9.3-metre win.

“She’s just the perfect racehorse,” Siejka said.

“She did an exceptional job on Saturday night and did it so easily. I didn’t turn the whip around or pull the plugs.”

Such was the ease of the win, and of course with the benefit of barrier one, Siejka says the family team behind Ameretto (she is raced by Seijka’s husband Ryan and his mother Tracey) is going into the final feeling “confident”.

“She’s always shown ability but she’s just gotten better and better,” she said.

P H Supercam (Million Dollar Cam) overcame a first over journey to score in the seventh annual harness racing Joe Gerrity Jr. Memorial Pace at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Saturday night.

The Jeff Bamond Jr. trainee drew post position four and after leaving to get away third, came first over on the race’s favorite Dancin Yankee (Jim Morrill Jr) in the $260,000 free-for-all pace.

Dancin Yankee, the Saratoga track record holder after winning the 2014 Gerrity in 1:48.4, returned to town to defend his title and came up just a neck shy of repeating.

Jason Bartlett piloted P H Supercam, who wore down Dancin Yankee in the final strides to secure the win in 1:50.1, easily the fastest mile of the ’15 campaign at the Spa.

Dancin Yankee had to settle for second while longshot Domethatagain (Billy Dobson) came on to finish third.

P H Supercam returned $11.20 to win and led an exacta and triple that paid $33.40 and $647, respectively.

The victory was the eighth in seventeen seasonal tries for millionaire pacer P H Supercam.

P H Supercam now has earnings of $1,244,251

Posted in Yirribee News & Events | Comments Off on PH SUPERCAM DOES IT AGAIN


P H Supercam, who recently passed the $1 million mark in earnings, is having a great year.
The son of MILLION DOLLAR CAM hasn’t let his status as one of the top earning, older pacers this season go to his head, but instead maintains a friendly, easy-going disposition.
ON any non race day, you can find PH Supercam relaxing in his stall or the pasture. Unlike some racehorses who might prefer to run around and play, the 8 year old gelding just prefers grazing and hanging out, said his trainer, Jeff Bamond Jr. And when it is time to work, PH Supercam is so easy-going even a kid could train him, added Bamond.
His daily race day routine consists of going out to the pasture, eating his feed and enjoying some of his favourite treats – apples and carrots. He’s then ready to go to the track. Once he arrives, he starts to get excited for what’s to come. PH Supercam immediately changes his attitude because its time to race. While for the most part he is relaxed, PH Supercam also has a serious side. Ears perked and ready to go, he shows his eagerness.
Baomond said his favourite thing about PH Supercam is his racing style. He’s never out of a race and even when he’s put in a difficult position he finds a way out of it.
He showed these skills at last years George Morton Levy Memorial by becoming the series champion. This year he was unbeaten in four legs of the series, before winding up fourth in the final. Bamond said he’s always a professional and it shows.
