Domesday gelding Domesky scored a well-deserved win in the Listed Ballarat Cup on Sunday.
Domesky (4g Domesday – Miss Aryan by Masterclass) scored going away by three-quarters of a length for his first win since last year’s G2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley.
The Mick Kent trained stayer is one of five stakes winners for Darley’s Red Ransom sire Domesday. The others are Eliza Park bound colt Pressday, Doctor Doom, Divorces and Backgammon.
He is a homebred for Errol and Peter Campbell and his dam is a half-sister to G1 STC George Ryder Stakes winner Wong.
Kent won last year’s Ballarat Cup with My Bentley and he was confident Domesky would be competitive after racing without luck during the spring carnival. “He’s a back-marker and just needs heat up front with the cut out of the ground,” Kent said.
“We like to space his runs a bit more than we did during the carnival. I gave him a couple of weeks in the water walker and he ran pretty well last time behind Musical Hit at Flemington.
“He will be a better horse next year and will have a go at a race like the Warrnambool Cup.”
Domesky’s dam Miss Aryan foaled another Domesday colt for the Campbells in August.
Domesday stands for $22,000 (inc gst) at Darley’s Northwood Park base in Victoria. He is very popular with breeders at that price covering 163 mares in 2010.
