VINERY stallion Husson has played the role of an unsung hero this winter with 5 new Stakes horses in the last 5 weeks.
The unbeaten racehorse and stallion was well represented during the recently concluded Brisbane Winter carnival with a host of his progeny figuring in major races across all age group and distances.
The new Stakes perfromers include; Looks Like The Cat (3rd J. J. Atkins Stakes 2yo Gr.1), Sister Souss (3rd Queensland Oaks Gr.1), Miss Husson (2nd South Coast Guineas Gr.3), Pop `N’ Scotch (2nd Queensland Cup L) whilst former Sakes horses Peron (4th Dane Ripper Stakes Gr.2) and Hi Son (2nd in the Centenary Mile L).
Meanwhile, last Saturday in the west, Star Of Husson went within a short-head of winning the WATC Belmont Oaks (L 2000m).
One of the Qld horses mentioned above that will be looking for a well-earned reward for her Winter efforts is Gold Coast filly Miss Husson who is in Sydney for tomorrow’s ATC Schweppes Handicap (2000m) at Randwick.
“She went terrific in the Sunshine Coast Guineas (2nd to Hopfgarten) and has been a bit unlucky this time in but she raced really good the other day,” trainer Bruce Hill said.
“She’s shown all along she wants a bit of ground. She’s been competitave in shorter races and did win over 2020m at Doomben last time in,” trainer Bruce Hill said.
Miss Husson, a chestnut filly with the prerequisite white splashes, has won 3 of her 13 starts and has banked more than $100,000 for her connections.
“She’s just a really, really nice and lovely filly that has done everything we want her to do. There’s no dramas with her, if every horse was like her, life would be easy,” Hill told Sportsman.
Husson’s recent run of success underlies his consistency this year with Patrick Payne’s Stakes 2yo Husson Eagle posting three seconds and a fourth in the Melbourne Autumn carnival to set himself up for a potentially lucrative 3YO season in 2014/15.
