Youngster proves feature win no fluke

New Zealand bred two-year-old pacer Winewomenandsong proved his debut win in he Premier’s Breeders Plate was no fluke when he scored an even more impressive win at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last night (Sunday).

The Steve Lukac-trained youngster scored a boilover at his previous and only other start when he defeated the state’s best juvenile Quastor Centurion two weeks ago.

But last night ne slipped around the field about 1000m from home to face the breeze outside of the leader but made light of the task to power away from his rivals in the home straight to score by almost eight metres from race leader Diamonds Are Magic with Odins Dragon 4-1/2 metres astern.

Talented young driver Mark Yole drove the colt as if he was the best horse in the ace and those tactics paid dividends.

Lukac said the win was very satisfying.

“I am very pleased with this win. It augers well for the future,” Lukac said.

“His work has been terrific since he arrived from New Zealand and I haven’t backed off him since his last run.”

“While he’s going well I’ll give him one more run then tip him out and bring him back for the better three-year-old races around Christmas,” the trainer said.

The colt is likely to have his last outing in Hobart in a fortnight which will be the last meeting of the season.
