Vagrant (Pariah) is the second foal out of My Obsession and Saturday's stakes win took the 4YO mare's earnings to over $320,000 from 16 starts. It was a dominant 1.25L win over the 1200m for Jockey Beau Merterns who has partnered the mare at her last three consecutive wins. She was last in the running and weaved her way up the inside off a hot tempo for an impressive performance. “She’s a very gritty mare. She loves winning, she’s very determined and you can’t teach that.” trainer Mitchell Freedman described the victory to media on Saturday. It was a timely update for the Peltzer colt whom we purchased at last months Magic Millions yearling sale for a very reasonable $80,000. He is going to develop into a lovely 3YO Classic type in time and looks well placed with Michael Freedman at Randwick. His dam, has now produced two runners for a Group 3 winner (Vagrant) and two time winner Black Orlov (Pride Of Dubai)- both horses based in Victoria.

Promising stayer Suit Of Armour made it two wins on the bounce with a victory over 2000m at Kembla Grange on Saturday. The 4YO son of Camelot was having his fifth career start when taking out the Class 1/Maiden Plate, following his excellent Super Maiden win on New Year's Day at Canterbury over 1900m. Jumping from barrier 7 in the field of 11 runners, Suit Of Armour found a good spot in a mid-field position where he travelled strongly throughout. Jockey Alysha Collett made her move rounding the home turn and he let down in the home straight to defeat Prince Of Arendell by 0.2L. "He's going to get 2400m and he'll thrive with some sting out of the track" Alysha commented after the win. "He's still learning as well. He hit the front, had his ears pricked and was having a good look around- a good win all things considered."Suit Of Armour was purchased for 75,000 pounds from the 2021 Tattersalls October Yearling sale at Newmarket in the UK through Champion's European agent Cathy Grassick from Brian Grassick Bloodstock.Congratulations to his large group of owners- 2022 1in4 Club syndicate, Mr F W Cook, Mrs C M Cook, Vale Brothers Racing, Mr D G Lambert, Mrs S R King, Mr N A Davidson, Mr D C Harrop, Mr G Seto, Mr P J Dunn, Mperezive Racing, S P D J Racing, Mr D Maratta, Mr A White, Mr G C Green, Dr M Healy, Mr M R Washbourne, Mrs S J Codner, Mr K G Shepherd and Mr M J Stirling.
Kenichi proved too good for his rivals at Wagga on Tuesday despite racing without cover from a wide draw for majority of the race. The big striding son of Maurice was second-up after an extended break after sustaining an injury during a race at Goulburn in July last year. Jumping from barrier 12, jockey Jean Van Overmiere took his time in trying to get across and find cover which only eventuated momentarily, leaving Kenichi exposed for much of the 1300m journey. "I gave him a push out the gates just to be a little further forward than what we were last start" Jean commented after the win. "Early on I thought, if we are four or five wide then so be it, but i wanted him further forward and in a nice rhythm. It worked out perfectly in the end, he accelerated nicely down the straight and proved too good."Kenichi was purchased for $60,000 from the Melbourne Premier yearling sale from the Arrowfield Stud draft in 2021. He has taken a long time to mature into his big frame and has been perfectly managed by his trainer Danielle Seib and regular rider Gabby, who did the strapping honors at Wagga on Tuesday. He looks set for a progressive preparation after notching his second win from his eighth start and should improve further as he steps out in distance.Congratulations to his team of owners 2021 1in5 Club, Mr J D Kennedy, Mr B R Kemp, Mr S Bunt, Mr R Boggian, Mr M W Finemore, Mr J J Dudley, Ms V L Sheils, Ms P Y Tam, Mr G B Lamont, Lotave, Mrs D L Fisher, Mr D Dickson, Fifty Thirty, Mr H Zanner, Mr C A Kiers, Mr G W Chesher, Mr N Blizzard and Mr B Koneski
