A stunning last-to-first effort by Soothing in Saturday’s Listed W H Wylie Stakes at Morphettville has added yet another Stakes winner to the impressive record of her sire Lonhro.
Soothing had won six races before her latest success that goes down as one of her best. Jockey Racquel Clark was content to settle at the rear of the field after Soothing missed the start slightly, working to the outside of the field on straightening and finishing far too well for her opposition to score by two lengths.
She becomes the 85th Stakes winner for Lonhro who maintains a record of better than 70 per cent winners to runners.
Novara Park's Sweynesse is the only son of Champion racehorse and sire Lonhro in New Zealand.
