July's Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month

The Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month was once again put to a fan vote on Facebook, with Grand National Steeplechase winner Wells edging out in-form galloper Generalife. 

Trained by Kathryn Durden, Wells had two starts in July, running a brave third in the Grand National Hurdle before taking out the Grand National Steeplechase. The seven-year-old earned $176,800 for the month.

June's Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month

The fans have had their say and Almalad is the Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month. Almalad polled more votes than stablemate Cosmic Endeavour, raising a few eyebrows in the Sky Racing office.

The Gai Waterhouse trained two-year-old is undefeated in his three starts, though he only raced the once in June, taking out the Group 1 J.J Atkins at Eagle Farm. The gelding earned $320,000 for his win and will now be set for a Spring campaign.


May's Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month

The fans have had their say and Streama is the Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month. Streama polled more votes than in-form galloper Spirit Of Boom in a close affair. 

Streama was trained by the legendary Guy Walter, who tragically past away in May after suffering a heart attack.  

The five-year-old mare raced twice in May, taking out the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast and the Group 1 Doomben Cup. Streama amassed over $500,000 in prize money for the month of May alone. 


April's Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month

The fans have had their say and Lankan Rupee is the Harvey Norman Horse Of The Month. Lankan Rupee polled more votes than fellow stars of the turf, It's A Dundeel and Sacred Falls. 

The four-year-old raced once in April, taking out the $2.5 million T.J Smith Stakes in brilliant fashion. The dominance of Lankan Rupee's victory saw the gelding gain a timeform rating of 132, ranking him the best sprinter on the planet and the 17th best Australian racehorse of all time.
