White Robe Lodge trainers Brian and Shane Anderton are ready to launch a big team on the racing scene after starting 20 horses at barrier trials at Wingatui on Monday (28/9/2015). Norah, Quartet, Flying Agent and Too Curious won four of the six heats on a dead course proper.  Norah (six wins) took the time honours for the day with 800m in 47.76, the last 600m in 36.26 when she shaded stablemate Coulee. Quartet shaded stablemate Ruby's Rose in 49.01, and 36.76. Quartet was a maiden winner at Ashburton in March. Flying Agent is a 3yr-old half-brother by Raise The Flag to Georgey Aeroplane, winner of five races to 2400m in Sydney.
