LEVIATHIAN owner Ray Borda has been busy in the past few days watching provincial NSW racing and couldn’t be happier.

Borda’s great stud dog Aston Dee Bee was represented last Friday by The Gardens winner French Martini which on debut ran a near 515m track record 29.22 when winning.

On Sunday night, Aston Dee Bee’s daughter She’s A Pearl stormed home to win the Temora Cup (457m) for her 11th win in her past 12 starts for trainer Jodie Lord.

Aston Dee Bee is third on both the national sires list and metropolitan standings. His progeny win at a 20% winners to runners strike rate.

“He’s just killing them,” Borda said.

“Yes, I might be biased because he’s my dog, but everything about them is fantastic.

“They are great types, they are great chasers, they get better with age and their longevity is now evident.”

Borda says Aston Dee Bee, now restricted to fresh semen matings, is “almost fully booked” all the time.

Borda also admits he is making future plans for a stud career with superstar Aston Rupee.

“He went so close to breaking The Meadows track record the other night and no dog has ever held both Sandown and The Meadows records at the same time,” he said.

He will next start at Sandown Park and then head to Wentworth Park for a trial ahead of the up-coming Golden Easter Egg series.

“I’m getting three phone calls a day inquiring about using him at stud,” said Borda.
