September Born was the street-corner tip ahead of his debut at Belmont on Saturday and punters got it right when the Playing God colt scored a decisive victory in the WA Racehorse Owners Plate (1000m).

The full-brother to Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) winner Kay Cee has inherited enough of her ability to earn black-type of his own as a 3yo next season.  He sat outsider front-runner Scenic George (Snippetson) and then responded when given a tap or two by Brad Parnham at the furlong.

September Born (Photo / Western Racepix) also sent Playing God ($454,100) clear of Rommel ($398,890) at the top of the WA 2YO Sires’ table and a win in that division would put the Darling View Thoroughbreds champion in esteemed company at season’s end.

He’s home and hosed for a second WA General Sires’ title, however, dual premierships have been the reserve of local icons Scenic (2005-06) and Haulpak (1990-91) in the modern era.

“If I was a punter, I would have put the house on him today,” trainer Neville Parnham declared after the colt firmed from an opening TABtouch quote of $4 into a $2.20 favourite on raceday.

“You never really know until they actually get out there against other horses but he’s continued to grow since coming back into work.

“We might give him another run but he will have to be going out soon to come back in time for the summer carnival.  There’s significant upside and I can see him getting a strong mile.

“He’s a different type to Kay Cee.  He’s sharper and not as lean as the mare with a good hindquarter and shoulder.”

Parnham prepares September Born for owner-breeders Greg and Kathy Edwards and, like Kay Cee, carries their orange and blue striped silks.  They’ve been breeding from the family for generations and had success along the way with Lizzy Long Legs (Steel Glow) who won the G3 Scahill Stakes at Ascot in 2000.

Kay Cee’s first foal is a colt by Darling View sire Splintex and she was bred back to A Lot (USA) at Westbury Park last September.

“I have a lot of time for this horse and I was kind to him in a Belmont trial last month,” Brad Parnham said after returning to scale.  “I didn’t expect to be that forward but I went with him when he jumped so well.  He got into a good rhythm and I was confident in the run.”

Darling View stands Playing God for $49,500 alongside Splintex ($11,000) and Lightsaber ($6,600).  Service fees (inc GST).
