Youngsters breakthrough

Oct 20, 2018

The past 8 days have seen some of the stable's rising stars breakthrough for their first career wins.  Beginning at Mornington last Thursday October 11th, the stunning bay colt, Zoumanor by champion racehorse, Zoustar won in very dominant fashion, sitting outside the leader and racing away to win easily.  Moving on to Sunday at the Cranbourne Cup meeting, blueblood, Frankel My Dear overcame an unsuitable tight track and wide gate to let down beautifully and come storming home over the top of them in the final furlong.  This colt is looking for further and will continue to improve as he steps up in distance.  

To Pakenham last night, and the rich liver chestnut gelding, Siege Warfare, by Sepoy out of a brilliant race mare, Belong to Many (making him a full brother to star 3YO Native Solider) suprised us all with his first up win at only his second start.  This colt has had a number of issues and has shown he has a tough constitution to bounce back and pick up his Maiden win in easy style. 

VRC Derby bound colt, Stars of Carrum remains on track and thriving, with his excellent second placing last Saturday in Adelaide in the Listed Hill Smith Stakes.  This colt by Fiorente is bred to stay and we will see him come into his own once he steps out over 2000m and beyond.  His next race will be The Vase at Moonee Valley en route to the Derby.    

Finally, our star sprinting mare, Missrock came from the tail of the field to run 3rd in the G2 Schillaci Stakes last Saturday and will now head to the Linlithgow on Derby Day.
