Outstanding Strike Rate for Fortuna Syndications

It has been another outstanding season for the Fortuna Syndications New Zealand Team. While undoubtedly Melody Belle has been the star of the show, the results from the total team have been exceptional, with the record for the season standing at 50 race day starts for 13 wins, a Strike Rate of 3.85. Note that this no flash in the pan, with the record over the past three seasons to 31 July 2019 being 91 starts for 26 wins, a three year Strike Rate of 3.50

“Naturally, this is a very pleasing result for the Fortuna Team,”said Fortuna Director John Galvin, “we are a boutique operation, we don’t aim to be the biggest, but we aim to deliver strong results for our large group of loyal clients.”When asked the reasons why Fortuna has been able to maintain such a consistent Strike rate, John Galvin replied. “I think there are four key factors, firstly a very strong selection policy, based around selecting well pedigreed horses with correct physical type – we are aided in this by David Ellis along with Jamie Richards and Mark Walker, secondly we are very patient – we like to ensure that every horse is thoroughly well prepared before it goes to the races, thirdly we ensure that our horses are placed correctly and lastly, we do not persevere for too long with horses who show less than average race day form.”

Fortuna currently has 15 horses in training in NZ, 14 of those with Jamie Richards as Trainer and 1 (Steeplechaser Highly Likely) with Kevin Myers
