Oakland Park stallion Sessions sired a treble at Geraldton on Wednesday and followed up with city winner Supersession at Belmont on Australia Day.

Sessions (Lonhro) is part a log-jam competing for second spot among our active stallions behind Playing God on the WA sires’ table this season.  His fifth-crop juveniles have yet to surface and there are 86 live foals in the current yearling crop so time is on his side for a premiership push in years to come.

Supersession (Photo / Western Racepix) started an odds-on favourite for his second start in the TABtouch Hcp (1200m) at Belmont and the result was never in doubt once Lucy Warwick angled into a gap at the top of the straight.

The 3yo gelding had come from last to fill a place on debut earlier this month for trainer Adam Durrant and a partnership managed by his breeder John Blackburn.

“That was a very encouraging run first-up and he’s trained on well since then,” stable spokesman Jason Miller said.  “It was a 10 out of 10 ride by Lucy and the race unfolded our way.  With natural improvement, he’s a nice horse in the making.”

Supersession’s dam Talk Of Angels (Rock Of Gibraltar) won a Geelong 2yo maiden for Peter Moody before transferring west to add another half-dozen victories in the Great Southern for Durrant and Paul Hunter.  Second-dam Mary Lavelle (O’Reilly) was a Stakes-winning 2yo in New Zealand’s South Island.

“There wasn’t much speed today and I didn’t want to get caught in traffic,” Warwick reported.  “That’s why we hit the front way too early.  He got a bit lost so far out but he’s a professional and does whatever you ask.”

Durrant had opened the Sessions treble at Geraldton when Ihts Closing Inn won a 3yo maiden on the bridle for Oakland Park.  Her dam Ihtsatune (Ihtiram) is a full-sister to G1 Kingston Town Classic winner Ihtsahymn.

Taunton Vale-bred gelding Three Sessions then fought back to score a gutsy victory for trainer Barry Newnham and jockey Peta Edwards before Passport won with ears pricked for owner-breeder Graeme Hammarquist and jockey Victoria Corver.
