Lynward Park sire Alfred Nobel (Ire) has a more than handy horse coming through the ranks with Gary Moore at Rosehill.
His lightly-raced gelding Winning Supreme broke through at Hawkesbury on Thursday after getting the better of Chautauqua’s half-brother Radradra in the Extra Security Maiden (1100m). They were locked in battle for the length of the straight before Winning Supreme was able to get the upper hand and land the prize.
Moore trains Winning Supreme for Strike Thoroughbred and his (NZ) dam Matilda Grace (Stravinsky) is a sister to La Italia (G2 Wakefield Challenge). He was bred by Graham Daws and sold for $60,000 at the 2014 Perth Magic Millions.
Daws returned to Perth from the Sydney Easter Sale last weekend after selling a Pierro – Most Secret filly to Japan for $260,000 and an All Too Hard – Mystically colt to Team Hawkes for $250,000.
Alfred Nobel is riding high on top of the Sunspeed second-season table with earnings of $681,300. He leads from War Chant ($650k) and Demerit ($457k).
