Gleneagles Stud owner Kevan Wacey has bred numerous winners by Eliza Park International stallions and he notched another when Dangerous Breeding cruised home in the VOBIS Gold Strike (1000m) at Warrnambool on Tuesday.
The second-crop daughter of EPI stallion Wanted jumped with the leaders on debut and extended in the straight to score by nearly three lengths. “The blinkers helped and so did the inside gate,” trainer Robert Smerdon said. “That rail is priceless for unraced horses to follow.”
Dangerous Breeding (2f Wanted – Discretionary by Hurricane Sky) defeated Maddie Moo Moo (Street Boss) and Purely Precious (Purrealist) to pocket the bulk of the $70,000 prizemoney and $30,000 in Super VOBIS bonuses on offer.
“It looked a deep race although it was a no-brainer with all that VOBIS Gold money,” Smerdon admitted. “I would have been happy if she hung on and ran second but she’s got that determination and ended up a clear winner.”
Wacey bred and sold the filly for $70,000 as part of the EPI draft at the 2014 Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling sale. Her dam Discretionary is a three-quarter sister to Special Edition (G3 Blue Diamond Preview) and a half-sister to Doubting (G2 Kewney Stakes).
Discretionary also has a Wanted filly foal at Gleneagles Stud in the Yarra Valley and Wacey bred the mare back to Statue Of Liberty last year.
Wanted (Fastnet Rock) will stand for a $16,500 (inc gst) service fee at Eliza Park International in 2015. The VOBIS Gold Strike result came hot on the heels of his Listed victory with Dead Or Alive in the LR Oaklands Plate on Saturday.
