Rivercrest Park resident Famous Roman sired his first winner at Pinjarra on Wednesday.
His Lark Hill based gelding Famous Someday settled midfield under Shaun Meeres and then produced a powerful finish to score by more than two lengths from All Settled (Discorsi). Ironically, the runner-up is raced by Dan and Julie Love who stand Famous Roman in association with Rivercrest Park studmaster Steve Hoare.
And in another twist, Famous Roman was previously based at Waterford Stud – the former home of Cardinal Virtue who also sired his first winner at Pinjarra on Wednesday.
Famous Someday (3g Famous Roman – Someday Lady by Key Business) is part-owned and trained by Stephen Miller and is the second foal of a mare related to G3 Belmont Sprint winner Corporate Bruce. Her first foal Blitzem Someday (Natural Blitz) won twice in Albany last year.
Someday Lady has a yearling colt by Patronize and was bred back to He’s A Decoy in September.
Famous Roman (Danetime) won 7 races including the G2 Lee-Steere Stakes and G3 R J Peters Stakes at Ascot. In the latter, he broke the long-standing WA State record for 1500m clocking 1.26.39s.
He stands at Rivercrest Park in Stratham alongside God Has Spoken, Kendel Star, Due Sasso and Black Tom.
