VINERY Stud resident Dubleo appears to have a future black-type contender in Dubleanny after her dazzling near last-to-first win at Flemington yesterday.
The Mick Price-trained three-year-old was having her first run since the spring in this afternoon’s VRC Long Tan Handicap at Flemington’s traditional Anzac day meeting.
Sent out at $7, she settled second last in the straight-six contest before unleashing a powerful and sustained burst to win by a long neck.
Dubleanny is from the first crop of former outstanding USA juvenile Dubleo out of a mare by Golden Slipper winner, Canny Lad.
The filly, who is part-owned by Vinery Stud, was beaten a nose on debut before recording a 3.3-lens win in her maiden at Wangarratta.
“She has always shown enough to be a city-class horse, so it was great to see her do what she did today,” Vinery’s Adam White.
“To win a race at Flemington could come in handy should she be in action during the spring.”
