It takes a better than average horse to win a class one immediately following a maiden triumph so the future looks bright for the Adam Trinder-trained Kyogle Son that achieved the feat at Spreyton last Sunday.
Kyogle Son was one of seven of the eight winners to lead throughout but it was the way the gelded son of Wanted went about his task that impressed his trainer and owner Wayne Roser.
“We had an opinion of this horse from day one but it took forever for him to win his maiden,” Roser said.
“The percentages of horses that win a maiden then a class one at their next start are very low so we are optimistic about this one living up to our early expectations.”
The owner and trainer also were pleased with the effort of the third-placed Khatun that is also raced by Roser.
“Khatun ran on gamely and I’m sure her next win is just around the corner,” the trainer said.
Khatun contested feature three-year-old fillies races earlier this season and was stretched to 2100 metres in the Strutt Stakes in which she finished near last, but that was at the end of a long preparation.
Kyogle Son and Khatun are by Wanted that has produced mostly sprinter-milers.
