Kitchwin Hills stallion Duporth moved off the mark with debut winner Advertencia in the TAB Maiden Plate (1000m) at Cranbourne on Friday evening.
Despite travelling wide, the Stephen Theodore trained colt kicked clear in the straight to score by three-quarters of a length from Peppermint Lane (Mint Lane) and Figlio (Written Tycoon).
Advertencia (2g Duporth – Startle by Flying Spur) was a $45,000 graduate of the Woodside Park draft at the 2013 Inglis Melbourne Sale. He is a half-brother to Brisbane stakes winner Astounded (Encosta de Lago) and minor winners by God’s Own and Bel Esprit.
Duporth (Red Ransom) stands alongside Dane Shadow at Kitchwin Hills. He won the G2 Golden Rose in the spring of 2008 and then earned himself a place at the leading Hunter Valley stud by winning the G1 BTC Cup at Doomben during the 2009 winter carnival.
Duporth is a half-brother to Vinery sire Excites (Danewin), Widden resident Tickets (Redoute’s Choice) and the dam of Newhaven Park stallion Delago Deluxe (Encosta de Lago).
Their dam Staging was one of the best fillies of her generation winning at G2 level in the AJC Light Fingers Stakes, Surround Stakes, Emancipation Stakes and BTC Carlton Cup.
