First winner by Tristad Ruler

Tristad Ruler sired his first winner at Ipswich on Friday courtesy Bahram Stud’s homebred filly A Tad Apart.

A Tad Apart (3f Tristad Ruler – Depart by Dehere) came from midfield to claim the Frys Spares Maiden (1350m) by more than two lengths.  The Greg Milne trained filly started a $2.70 favourite after a close-up fifth behind Flying Lamborgini (Bernardini) at Doomben earlier this month.

Tristad Ruler (Kingston Rule) sired just 8 foals in two seasons for Bahram Stud owner Greg Wagner at his Westbrook property in 2008 and 2009.

The Ipswich result follows the recent victory of Bahram’s homebred filly Charming Ally at Stanthorpe.  She opened the winning account of Wagner’s former Umatilla sire Prospectors Charm.

Wagner raced G1 Epsom Handicap winner Captain Sonador and stands him in association with Raheen Stud.  The Shamardal stallion is currently standing his second season at the Warwick based nursery.

Captain Sonador’s first crop on the ground includes a half-sister to A Tad Apart.
