SOUTHERN Halo sire, DUBLEO has sired impressive winners in Australia and overseas in the past week highlighted by Oriental Taste and Dubleanny.
The former gun USA sprinter/miler has sired nine winners/placegetters (combined) including a stakeswinner from his last 10 runners confirming his reputation as one of the most consistent and best value, stallions on the national roster.
Among Dubleo’s recent spate of winners is Vinery’s own stakes winning mare Dubleanny, who added last Sunday’s Listed SAJC Proud Miss Stakes to her VRC Quezette Stakes win earned last winter at 3.
The stallion was also responsible for the highly impressive debut metro winner, Night fever, who scored a length win at Canterbury on May 4 for trainer Tim Martin.
Dubleo’s triumphs haven’t been restricted to Australia, with Oriental Taste, winning his fifth race from 10 starts, in Macau on Sunday evening taking his earning close to $170,000.
The three year old is on target to be crowned Macau’s top juvenile after a sterling win in the Listed Lisboa Juvenile on Sunday.
Ridden by Stanley Chin, Oriental Taste hit the line strongly to beat Northern Champion (Rambo Tse) by a neck, with Winner Winner the stablemate to Oriental Taste rocketing home for third.
Oriental Taste blitzed his rivals in the first leg of the Series the Listed Lisboa Prelude on April 10, and looks to have the final leg the Group 3 Lisboa Challenge over 1500 metres at his mercy.
Racingandsports.com reportes that Gary Moore has had a huge opinion of the gelding from day one and the neat looking son of Dubleo (USA) has justified his judgement, recording win number five on Sunday from only 10 starts and close to $1 million in prizemoney.
“That was great; he’s got a very bright future.”
“He is just a lovely horse and now he is showing a better turn of foot when he races back off them.” Moore said.
“He really is the perfect horse for Asia, he has such a great demeanour, he’s a good eater and nothing worries him.”
“He got the 1400 metres out strongly and it’s hard to see him being beaten in the final on June 4.”
Oriental Taste was a A$52,500 purchase at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast June Sale.
Dubelo’s most recent success story was Secret Encounter who surged clear for an easy 1.3-lens in the feature race at Dubbo yesterday.
It was the gelding’s fourth win career win.
