Undoubted natural ability and patience have earned the Lonhro colt Ranier the most important success of his career in the Group Three Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington on Saturday, 3 November.
Rainer was a Listed winner of the Gothic Stakes at his previous start at Caulfield last month, but only one more run to establish himself as an autumn classic prospect with his latest victory.
The success also rewarded the patience of trainer James Cummings whose belief in the colt never wavered.
“I still think he’s three months away from being the complete racehorse,” Cummings said.“But he’s really starting to put it together and he’s looking like a Guineas colt in the autumn.”
Lonhro filly Aristia was equally dominant when taking out the Group Two Wakeful Stakes on the same day.
Champion racehorses and sire Lonhro’s is now the sire of 78 Stakes winners.
Novara Park’s Sweynesse is the only son of Champion racehorse and sire Lonhro at Stud in New Zealand.
