Darley Stud globally will no doubt take a bit of interest in a nicely named 4YO who won in, of all places, Canada.
At Woodbine on the weekend, the lightly raced son of Lonhro raced on the turf….and was eye-catching.
His name is WALKABOUT CREEK (Lonhro-Pass Partout) and he recorded his 3rd win from just 7 starts when he darted through in the middle of two others late to take the race in dashing style.
It was only a claiming race over 1200m however, he is building a nice resume.
But the most compelling thing was the time. He carved out the win, on turf, in 1.08.88.
His mother is a stakes placed daughter of Tiznow and he’s a grand son of a multiple stakes winner in Canada.
Very few Lonhro’s ever race at Woodbine, in fact most media said this bloke is about the 2nd only.
And most racegoers had never heard of the stallion. Robert Geller, the racecaller at Woodbine, told the crowd the exciting 4YO is by the Aussie star stallion, Lonhro.
And it’s fair to say the partisan Woodbine crowd will hear more of him should Walkabout Creek continue his rise up the ladder of success.
He now has earned $100,000 in prizemoney.
Walkabout Creek was got when Lonhro stood in Kentucky 5 years ago.
