Julie Conti’s Arabian warmblood foal Dreamtime Lomaxx has taken out first prize at Tatura’s North East and Border RPG Annual All Breeds Foal Show.ALEXANDRA BOLKAS May 16, 2013 11:00am
Ms Conti said the six-month-old foal was fathered by her own stallion Dreamtime Xzibit — named after the US rapper Xzibit because he was ‘‘big, black and beautiful’’.
She said the foal’s mother was also ‘‘a really special mare’’, a thoroughbred by Kingston Rule which won the Melbourne Cup in 1990.
The foal was prepared for the show by Shepparton’s Mitch Fox and Nicole Touzel from Marzel Park, a horse-training and breaking business at Kialla.
Ms Conti said winning was a great experience.
‘‘It’s always nice when you believe something’s good but other people can confirm it,’’ Ms Conti said.
‘‘You have a lot of faith in what you’re doing but when someone who’s been around for a while can confirm it — it does feel good.’’
Ms Conti said Dreamtime Lomaxx would continue to be trained by Mitch Fox, who would break him in.
‘‘Mitch will break him in and he then he will be gelded to reign in his hormones which are already showing,’’ Ms Conti said.
‘‘Hopefully you’ll see him at the Royal Melbourne and Sydney shows.
‘‘Mitch has shown at that level a few times, so I have a lot of faith in him.’’
