Australasian Breeders Crown semi-finals line-ups finalised

KATY Perry is on her way to Ballarat - the equine Katy Perry.

The smart New Zealand two-year-old filly will be among the major contenders in the Australasian Breeders Crown semi-finals at Bray Raceway next Saturday night.

Katy Perry laid her claim for a Breeders Crown title with a run away win in a repechage at Geelong on Wednesday night.

Trained by Cran Dalgety and driven by ace Kiwi reinsman Dexter Dunn, Katy Perry ($1.10 favourite) is unbeaten in two Australian starts and the winner of five of eight lifetime outings.

Katy Perry completed a repechage double for NZ at Beckley Park, with Cyclone Kate ($2.50 favourite) getting the money earlier in the night.

Ballarat and District Trotting Club will for the second year in a row host the ABC two and three-year-old pacing semi-finals for male and females.

This will be the stepping stone group 1 finals at Melton on Sunday, August 24.

Geelong was also the setting for repechages for two-year-old colts and geldings, while the three-year-old repechages were run at Kilmore on Thursday night.

Interstate and NZ raiders were also prominent at Kilmore, with victories going to the Barry Purdon-trained RocknRoll Arden, and the NSW duo of Bling It On for Belinda and Luke McCarthy, and My General Lee.
