At about the time leviathan racehorse owner John Singleton bought a pub a few clicks north of Newcastle, he was scratching his head thinking of a name for a nice 2YO he bred.

The pub was called The Elanora, and it is massively popular, a real winner by all accounts. So Singo named the baby colt THE ELANORA too.

And, on Saturday in the Gr 3 Spring Stakes (3YO) over a mile at Newcastle, the horse version proved a winner in a stylish manner.

He came off the canvas after being headed 200m from home to stun his rivals at $7.50 and claim the top prize.

The Elanora (Redoute’s Choice-Yesterjoy) earned himself Black Type in doing so. It was his 2nd win from just four starts and he looks rather promising.

“It was a masterstroke by Chris (Waller) running him at 1800m last start because it gave me the confidence to go when I needed to today,” said rider Tommy Berry.

“I know he’d be strong late and when Nash came up to me at the 200m and headed me, I wasn’t worried because I knew this horse could run out a strong mile and I also the other horse has a tendency to run about a bit.

And that’s how it panned out with the pair, the other horse being HIGH SUPREMECY (Savabeel-Lady Chaparral), camer away to gap the others.

ELLSBERG (Spill The Beans-Love Of Liberty) got home well but was 3 lengths back in 3rd.

The future looks bright for all colts, but the winner might really go on with it now.

“He feels like he can run 2000m and I suspect he will be a much stronger horse next prep,” added Berry who was sporting a Movember….mo.

Well, sort of. It, like The Elanora, could do with a bit more time and both should blossom accordingly.

The winner ran a 1uick 1.35.73 in winning the $160,000 race.
