An exciting development has been the purchase of the New Zealand bred mare Very Grand in partnership with long standing friends Paul and Tacey Spackman. Very Grand is from the family of Slight Chance currently headlined by the first season sire Dane Shadow.  Very Grand is the winner of four in Sydney and over $150,000.00 under the guidance of Bart Cummings. She will be set for fillies and mares races in Perth before going to stud in 2010.

Very Grand will be under the care of trainer Steve Rowe, who has done an excellent job with another Gervase Park Graduate Class Of Her Own.
