As a young horse, Double Halo finished a short half head second to New Zealander It’s A Dundeel in a midweek race at Canterbury.

While the Kiwi superstar has subsequently won five Group One races and proven himself one of the best gallopers in Australasia, Double Halo’s pickings since that race in September 2012 have been on the lower end of the thoroughbred food chain.

However, the son of Dubleo, has been a good horse for his large group of owners with eight wins and 15 placings from 39 starts, amassing $154,755 prize money.

On Tuesday at Muswellbrook, Double Halo will seek his own slice of glory in the Aberdeen Cup (1280m).

“I guess his claim to fame is being narrowly beaten by It’s A Dundeel at Canterbury,” Double Halo’s trainer Luke Griffith said.

“I’d love a photo of that on my wall.

“He’s been a good horse for us and hopefully he can get away with the Aberdeen Cup tomorrow.

“It looks a nice race for him.”

Griffith got Double Halo as a three-year-old maiden after the gelding began his career with Kris Lees at Newcastle.

He is owned by a diverse group headed by Mal Eveleigh, an electrician who works in the mines.

Double Halo is yet to win a Cup race but has registered seconds in the 2012 Muswellbrook and Dubbo Cups.

The gelding resumed from a 159-day break with a solid length, head third to Youthful King in an 1100m open handicap at Quirindi on February 21.

“He got caught on a limb at Quirindi and was taken wider by another horse on the home turn,” Griffith said.

“He’s pulled up well after the run, has drawn a good gate (barrier two) and loves the sting out of the ground.

“It’s a good race for him second up.”
