WELL-BRED three-year-old Kyogle Son has taken a while to come to hand but at Spreyton on Saturday he left no doubt he has a bright future by scoring an impressive maiden win over 1000 metres.
The Adam Trinder-trained gelding settled just off the speed set by Woohoo and he travelled well to the home turn where rider Chris Graham called on the son of Wanted for the big effort and he quickly put the end result beyond doubt.
Kyogle Son charged to the lead and went on to defeat Bonjour Belle by four lengths with the well-backed Prince Marauding a short half-head away third.
“I started this horse off this preparation in a race over 1150 metres and had to bring him back to the 1000m but in the end, it worked in our favour,” Trinder said.
“We have been trying to win a race with this fellow for a while but the way he finished off and was strong on the line gives us confidence going forward.”
Kyogle Son is owned and raced by Wayne Roser who is one of Trinder’s most loyal clients.
“I am tickled pink with this win because we have always believed he would develop into a nice horse,” Roser said.
