Impeccably bred Chris Waller stayer Miyake underlined his potential with a strong win in the Brew Stayers Trophy (2530 metres), his second victory in a row.
According to Waller’s Melbourne stable foreman Jo Taylor, the horse is a stayer with a future.
Miyake is by superstar Japanese stallion Deep Impact out of the smart Street Cry mare Star Fashion.
Waller turned to Damian Lane to ride him, the jockey having had a lot of success in Japan partnering horses by the stallion.
Lane said Miyake was still learning and was a bit green but he declared him a horse on the way up.
The rider made it a double when successful on Memphis Rock two races later.
Miyake ($4.20) defeated Tralee Rose ($3.90) by a half-length with Reflect The Starts ($3.40) a head away third.
