Quick Double for Rheinwood Pastoral!
Widden Stud’s Sebring started the day with a winner at Rosehill on Saturday when the Peter Moody trained Stamina edged out high priced colt Bull Point to win by a short half head.
A winner at Kembla back in June, the Peter Moody trained Stamina had been second in two subsequent runs before coming into this 1400 metre assignment off a 35 day break.
He was heavily backed and justified the support when charging home late to nail Magic Millionssale-topper Bull Point on the line.
“He showed a great turn of foot and was held up getting a run, so it was a great effort,” said stable foreman Claire Cunningham.
“We’ll look at the Spring Stakes (Group III) at Newcastle over a mile for his next start.”
Already a winner of $110,000 in prizemoney with two wins and three placings from just seven starts, Stamina was a $100,000 Inglis Easter purchase for his trainer from the draft of Rheinwood Pastoral.
He is the fourth winner from four foals to race from stakes-placed Sky Risks (FR), who comes from the family of champion two year-old Hasna.
Sky Risks has a yearling filly by Stratum, but unfortunately missed to Sebring last spring.
Rheinwood Pastoral enjoyed an early double with three year-old New Approach (IRE) filly Montana Diamond scoring at Hawkesbury on debut for Hawkes Racing.
Montana Diamond as a yearling
A $110,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Geoff Coady from the Rheinwood draft, Montana Diamond is the first foal of Rose of Montana, a half-sister to Group II winner Montana Flyer and full sister to Group II placed Montana Sunset.
Rose of Montana is due to foal to Foxwedge this spring.
