Precocious colt Risen From Doubt will embark on a G1 Blue Diamond Stakes assignment after a brilliant debut victory in the LR Maribyrnong Trial (1000m) at Flemington on Saturday.
Risen From Doubt (2c Not A Single Doubt – Coconut Mamma by Fantastic Light) was sent out favourite after winning two barrier trials in Adelaide and he reproduced that form at headquarters. “It was lovely to see him do it game day,” trainer Tony McEvoy said. “And if he can beat them like that now – watch out in the autumn.
“We will send him to the paddock this week and bring him back for the Blue Diamond in February.”
Risen From Doubt accelerated to a two length lead down the straight to become the 18th stakes winner by Not A Single Doubt. The Arrowfield Stud resident sired this year’s Blue Diamond winner Miracles of Life.
Risen From Doubt was bred by Tyreel Stud’s Dean Fleming and he hails from the family of More Joyous. He is in-bred 3 x 4 to Danehill and was a $140,000 buy for agent Shelley Hancox at the 2013 Gold Coast Magic Millions.
Not A Single Doubt (Redoute’s Choice) stands at Arrowfield Stud for a fee of $33,000 (inc gst).
