Queens Rose Blooms at Counties
Matamata trainer Graham Richardson is in no hurry with his promising mare Queens Rose who dealt to a competitive rating 85 line-up over 1400 metres at Pukekohe on Saturday.
Despite recording a time that was fractionally quicker than the feature race on the programme, the Gr. 2 NRM Auckland Breeders’ Thoroughbred Stakes, Richardson was quick to point out that times don’t tell the whole story in racing. Read more here.

Meet Graham Richardson aka "Richie"
It has been a wonderful journey having Ritchie train horses for me. Without his great communication skills, happy personality,social skills, and ability to get the most out of my horses I probably would have given the game away. His horses always are presented fit, well and happy. I can enthusiastically endorse Ritchie if you are looking for a professional trainer for your horse.
